Good Dog is a free interactive adventure title that forms part of the itch.io platform, much like the games War of Roses and S.o.L.o. It features a precious canine whose job is to make a hospital happy. It lets you interact with people in various ways, resulting in different moods and reactions.
After you select one interaction, you can choose the next one for other reactions. There are also objects around the building for you to find, such as secret balls. The game is in a first-person perspective, and dialogue is presented as text.
A dog’s life
When a hospital is overburdened with patients and a depressive atmosphere, they hire you as the Good Dog to make a difference. You have the freedom to run where you want in the building, meeting new people and interacting with them. There are few doors you can’t access, and most of the humans speak to you when you approach or engage with them.
Helping people become happy
As soon as you interact with someone, you’ll see icons appear on the top of the screen. It’s different for every person, but you don’t need to worry about which one you select. The other options will remain there until you’re done interacting. However, the goal is to see which one the human likes the most.
There are fun items to find in Good Dog, most of which are hidden. One of the top items are secret balls, and you should try to locate all of them in the hospital. The best strategy is walking up to every object in the game with your snout to see what you can take and use later.
While you’ll run around in first-person view in the 3D environment, you may come across strange scenes. There may be patients that don’t respond to your licking, or you may come across a doctor on a toilet while completely dressed. It may seem odd, but it makes the game friendly to children who just want to be a lovely dog.
Become man’s best friend
Good Dog is a casual, fun adventure game where you’ll put your canine skills to the test. You’ll spend your time hunting for objects or pleasing humans, and you’ll laugh at some of the interactions.
