“Overall, A Summer with the Shiba Inu has a good lengthy story with twists and plots, the altering of reality, and modern themes related to advanced technology and one of the best visual novels I have played.”

“The menus have random facts about dogs, there's a "dog bark button" in the options menu, and I don't really know what else you need to know about this.”

About This Game



A Summer with the Shiba Inu is a visual novel with interactive, meaningful choices.

When Syd the Shiba Inu returns to Shiba Island after a ten year absence, she sets off a chain of events that overturns the lives of all the dogs she had left behind. She gets back in touch with her old friend, Max, and along the way meets a mysterious Labrador retriever named Quei-Li. (What’s a Lab doing on the Island, anyway?) They are her only remaining allies as she tries to survive the past that made her leave the Island in the first place.





  • 3 main endings for Syd, with 10+ endings for other dogs depending on your actions!
  • Visual novel with story wordcount of ~70,000
  • Random facts about dogs in menus
  • 30 Steam achievements
  • Dog bark button in preference menu

Demo available - please see our website.



An emulated instance made so that Reality can be reallocated amongst the dogs of the Island.
This allocation is based on ranking, and therefore how good a dog is.
It could be said that the ranking based on these ARInas maintains the social order.
And it is in my best interests to ensure that I have the highest ranking possible. I will fight tooth and claw for it, because only then can I gain freedom...
