Additional Notes:
(update) after showing this "game" off and spending more time working on projects I can understand any complaints that arise from it not utilizing gameplay at all and instead playing out more like a film/video that has a play and reverse button. Either way, I'm leaving it up as a learning lesson for me personally. Even though I see it as a failed attempt at a game experience, someone else may find it useful to pull from.

This game is about a corgi that wants to become an Octopus, representational of being more than average (fame/innovation).
It's more of an interactive story than a game, and is fairly short. So I would think it's best to be played and experienced first before reading too much about it.
It's okay if you don't get anything out of it. It's an experimental game, and is my first finished project so I'm not expecting perfection from it.

Feedback:
If you enjoy it feel free to leave a comment about what you liked and thought about the experience.

If you didn't enjoy it so much, that's fine too. I would appreciate hearing what about it was unpleasant for you.

I'll try my hardest to respond to most feedback anyone leaves for the game.

Also, if you get the chance check this out: http://portraiturefromthe surreal.tumblr.com Haley Craw does excellent work and has helped out a great deal in giving me feedback on my work.

it was good but too short, needs more story, more emotion, better music more appealing or relaxing

Thanks for the feedback, I'm curious about what you think needs improvement with the music? I realize the flaws in all other areas you pointed out, but the music wasn't in my opinion the weak part of this game. I'd like other feedback touching on this too if anyone can elaborate more on the music.

very cute but 2 short so 2 make it better make a i want 2 be an octopus 2 but oh tho in this i think the moral is. DOGS CAN BE WHAT EVER DAY WANT


Gallardoblend responds:

Thank you for the nice response, but there will not be an "I want to be an Octopus 2". This game was a good learning experience, and will help me continue to make a a variety of games that have a more fleshed out experience.

I liked the dog with hard work tied to his back. I thought him being the normal guy, going to work every day, to do a boring job just to fullfill his dreams. And every day he says to himslef today I will do sometinhg great, something extraordinary.
As he opposed the grey dogs you lost me. I just thought "what?!"
The octupus looked kinda cute.
In the end I think he wanted to break free, he wanted to be a octupus. And he finally become one, floating free, apart from the other dogs which follow their normal grey day life.

Given the little interaction you could have, this would maybe better be a movie. There are movies here that have more interaction.
