Arrow keys to move. A short game in which you play as a dog in a snowstorm. Has multiple endings.

UPDATED 3/12/13 - Interact button and various small details added.

Thanks to everyone who was willing to put up with me and gave me constructive feedback. For everyone else, I hope I can make better stuff in the future.

The game has a story, I don't get why everyone says otherwise. At least, a lesson I should say. Simply put, as a dog you make the difficult choice. Do you stay with your deceased owner and life long best friend? And honor the child by never leaving his/her side, staying to the very end. And ultimately perishing along with them. Or do you go seek shelter and perhaps find help? In real life as man's best friend, the dog would ultimately stay with the deceased owner till the very end.

Great game, great art game.

A depressing game that has a few different endings, If you're still gonna die, will you choose to die beside your friend?

The music and the mood in this game is perfect, a simplistic art piece about inevitability.

Very deep and emotional and very tragic. I'm fighting back tears. The dog risked his life to save his owner but failed. Things like this make me want to believe in Heaven.

I really liked this! I wish it was longer, since it only took a few minutes to find all endings, but if you play through it a few times it actually tells a fairly complete story. *spoilers in review below*

There are many endings, some of which equal pointless death, true, but seem realistic to the situation, especially when your protagonist can't read signs. If you head towards the mountain pass, you'll see a body lying in blood, clearly dead of injuries, with your owner's hat (?) laying nearby. This seems to indicate that the owner tried to carry on after his friend was killed, and became lost. I took this to mean he was lying prone from hypothermia instead of dead. Did anyone else notice you can move your owner's body? It's actually quite possible to push your owner with you to the town exit. If you interpret the game this way, there actually is a 'good' ending to the game, as you have dragged your owner to safety.

Very nice sad undertones with the dead person and the ambient music, reminded me a lot of Earthbound.
