News & New Sale for April 17th week!

The indie Gala bundle ended awhile back and I want to thank anyone who bought the game. As well as continued thanks to new and old customers. The game has been on Steam now for about 2 years.

Still working on a new, big update, which has a whole new city and new features, like re-usable items and new property to buy.

A few things about next update:
-Updated Pup Boy with new inventory and Map Screens
-Sail-able Boat with new islands
-New city with tons of new stores and places to visit
-Ability to save Dogs for future use in the cryolab
-New home/apartment to buy
-Saving your current dog
-New places like Bar, Club, Lotto Store
-New items like dog whistle + Dragon Transformation Gem
-Equip & reuse items (use rollerskates when you want)

There is no ETA for these features, and they may be split into several updates

WARNING: Contains mild violence and drug use

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching video games.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects.
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms - children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures.

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by taking the following precautions:
• Play in a well-lit room
• Do not play when you are drowsy or fatigued
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.
