The Deadly Dog-Dating Dungeon. The name says it all, but also very little. Apparently, Momiji has been cursed by an irresponsible sage, and now any time someone gets too close, they're teleported with her to the... well, the Deadly Dog-Dating Dungeon.

Momiji can only escape this dungeon by completing all the rooms and defeating the boss at the end, but her partner can leave whenever she wants as soon as she decides it's too much of a pain. It's situations like these that can really put peoples' bonds to the test, huh?

So now, along with Nitori, Momiji must solve puzzles, fight baddies, and occasionally flirt on this (apparently) romantic excursion into a surreal alternate dimension.


Playing with a controller is highly recommended!

always a fan of Summon Night, had a good time with the combat.
not big on puzzle games on the other hand but the puzzle sequences here were engaging and satisfying to clear, dialogue for tossing the  butt  ball in the water was especially adorable.

the Fierce Aunnlettes and final boss hit the sweet spot of challenging at first but very doable once I got used to the fights and dodge timings.

thank you for the game!

(+1)

Pretty late, but I would love if there were a sequel or a full-on game that's similar to this (like same mechanics and battle). In other words, this is a great game!

(+1)

I've got a couple ideas for returning to these mechanics in far future, but I do mean far future. In the meantime, I'll recommend the Summon Night: Swordcraft Story series on GBA, which I totally stole at least half my ideas for the combat system from (and the earlier 2D games in the Tales of [insert fantasy word here] series from which I stole the other half, heh)

(+1)

is there a secret to defeating le 2 funni doggies? :( right now im trying to just git gud after beating the final boss, is there a pattern of some kind? do you think it's possible to do it without taking any damage? 

(+1)

You kinda gotta... just get lucky. Sorry, I know that's really lame, but I really only put them in as a joke, not expecting anyone to try to beat them. I didn't put any time into making them an actual fair fight after that (you're never guaranteed to be able to dodge their running attack, for example), haha...

(+1)

I see, i just saw the comment from the other dude who beat them and thought "damn, they must be really good at this" but knowing this makes it even funnier, 10/10 best doggos, i will pray to the rng gods until then, thank u and love ur game

(+1)

Thanks for playing! 🧡

You find the secret grinding room and become incredibly OP

makes perfect sense

(+1)

A really cute game that quite entertaining.
It's pretty short (unless you decide to bash your head against two very special doggos) puzzle dungeon which I would love to see more of.

BTW, about those special doggos. After beating them, I didn't get any Bond Levels for some reason, thought I would let you guys know

The FIERCE Aunnlettes actually give almost no experience points ;)

(+1)

Oh welp, I was expecting here an extra boost before facing the boss and I just got rewarded with a sense of achievement. I'll have to do with that xD

Both the actual boss and this one were fairly challenging (AKA difficulty but possible to beat if you know how to play the game which is how I like my enemies) so good work on that. I'll be looking forward to more works of yours 🙂👍

(+1)

Another fun game!

I did encounter the bugs that the others mentioned previously

I love how the battle is that like of Summon Night: Swordcraft Story

As usual, the final boss kicked my ass multiple times but it was very fun. I never did get a handle on when the final boss does the helicopter thing but still, very fun


You actually nailed down my number one inspiration perfectly there; the world always needs more Swordcraft Story. Thanks a bunch for playing!!

(+2)

I love how Momiji's face says she's just done with the whole thing, but she happily skips along in the dungeon and absolutely races back to you at full speed the instant there's a clear path after you've separated.

Really nice game, I enjoyed it a lot.

im just really stupid but- how do you move/push the dogs?  im on pc and i keep on trying the gambler hook but no go

there's one specific kind of statue you can grab onto, give 'em another look and you'll find it

I'm not sure if I'm missing something.

The statues with the eyes don't reset when you leave a room. it's a terrible puzzle

(+1)

oh thank you!

I beat the boss, which took a bit(the blade attack and the ball attack were annoying)

I tried saving on the ending credits and got this. 

The propeller move has already been massively nerfed, but I probably will continue to make some tweaks to make the fight not drag on as much.

You're actually not meant to be able to save after beating the boss, but I didn't realize it was even possible to pause at that point so thanks for letting me know

Had the following occur when encountering the last enemy in the boss-rush room:

Okay, I think I got 'em. Thanks so much for the help and I'm really really sorry you had to replay the whole game multiple times just to run into these

(+1)

These issues aside, this was one of the better games this jam. I've scored it accordingly, good luck

(+1)
found another softlock.
(+1)

how do you defeat the lil Mokou chickens?

Just keep on killing them until they die for real. However, if you haven't done the other areas yet it may be easier to leave and come back when you've leveled up a bit more

Hello, I enjoyed the game a lot, but it seems I encountered a bug? I moved a statue over a hole and it suddenly threw me into an infinite loop and had to restart the game. Just thought to let you know. 11/10 tho. Would definitely play again.

Well that's a weird lil' edge case there; luckily I already know what causes it so it ended up being a pretty simple fix

(+1)

I like what I saw so far while I was playing. Unfortunately I wasn't able to complete what's currently here due to getting softlocked in the "cat-frog" statue room. This looks good though and I will definitely check back after saving is added ^^

I knew that spot would end up continuing to trap people... That room has been such a massive thorn in my side for the last few days of development, nothing I change seems to make it work, ahhh... Maybe I should just add a way to skip it entirely

I may be stupid.

More seriously, I think a reset room button would have been nice for these times. I just found myself stucc while overthinking things.
And crashing at the final boss. That's really unfortunate. *sweat*

Edit: got somehow teleported inside the solid blocks after this room's scripted fight. Can't free myself.

(1 edit)

Oof, that's a lot of new softlocks to go over, huh? Thanks a bunch for documenting them all though, seriously helps a ton.

Yeah, not being able to implement a reset button or a save feature in time for the deadline (and trust me, I tried, and I cried) is probably my number 1 regret for this game jam. Knowing how many times and how many people have been forced to replay from the start of the game because I couldn't make things work properly seriously keeps me up at night
