What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Inspired by action figure playing in our childhoods, we developed a real time squad combat game - Dog Duty. Our goal is to develop a uncomplicated, fun, fast-paced game.

So, why Early Access?
We've been working on this mission for 3 years, as a side project. We've tested a LOT of different mechanics, and still, there is always plenty of ideas and fun things to add.

While we're under some kind of loop, we're seeking help from players to narrow the things down. To get clear on what matters most, and focus to finish the game on it's best shape.

WARNING: Bugs of all sorts may happen on earliest versions!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't have a specific time frame, but we're initially looking to keep the Early Access for 3 months. But only time will tell.
(Update, up to July 2018, max. Doing our best!)”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The first early access version contains:
-the intro level, and the desert world section
-4 soldiers to your squad, and some gear

The full version will get:
-the swamp and sea sections
-2 new soldiers to rescue
-more gear for your squad
-a final level”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It contains the desert level of the game to play. It's a brief play, but have all the key gameplay mechanics on it.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“It's possible that the price may change during Early Access, and before releasing. Not planned, but, it's a possibility.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our mission is to conclude the game development, while keeping it simple, friction-less, "high speed, low drag". Player feedback will be key to help us achieve this goal.

We will be present on the forums, interacting with the community, and posting regular updates.

Be a member of the Evil Octopus Army, to achieve higher glory!”

(Now really, really) the final phase


It's surely a long time since the release of Dog Duty as a Early Access title. There was bugs to fix, characters, worlds, enemies and bosses to add.
Lots of bugs to fix, and polishing of the game, based on player feedback.

It's been a hard road, but we're almost, almost done.

I've got some reports telling that the game lacks of a clear objective, of what the heck the player is doing in Octopia. These are fair questions. Generally, I avoid obvious approaches like tutorials and over-explanations, so my solution was to develop a more robust map screen.

I will be uploading fixes for the game weekly. And, as always, if you find bugs, please, please, send to us!

What now?



On the end of June, Dog Duty were on Big Festival, and we watched-and-updated the game during the 4 event days straight. It was really great to watch the players interact with the game. Now, it's time to do the final plans for the release.

There's some small content additions (Bettina is working on the Boss music, and I'm planning a new addition to the travel hud), but, the major work from here, will be:
  • Porting, to the Xbox One and PS4. The process will change the pc version too, as there will be more testing, strict regulations and all.
  • Bug fixing, they will take the best of my time, but, well, it will be great to finally solve some issues.

There's more to be said, but I will save it for the next updates. The new music tracks are almost ready, and I hope that the new hud will be too.

Until then!
