This game is Short! It was made in 20 hours for Ludum Dare 32!

So, what weapon could be more unconventional than a Dog? Choose carefully your steps trough the war field!

like the game just a little sad

Fiz os dois finais ! É curto mas é um bom jogo , esses cachorros devem sofrer ;-;

I liked the concept. It's quite sad to think of the dog as a weapon, exploding himself because humans take advantage of the fact it's "just an animal". Really interesting, and the movements and controls seemed pretty smooth to me. Good work.

A short but interesting game, I like the dual story, how there are two orders you can follow, two voices you can listen while navigating the field... I've played through the 'right' ending (the escape) so I guess I'll play to see the other one too... curious as to if the other path is a Game Over just an entirely different message. Controls are slick, level design just enough of a maze to keep you caged a while, but it still doesn't take long to complete if watch where you're walking. Nice work!

Thansk for your time pal! :D

There's an interesting story told here, even if, personally, I don't approve the message, but if you plan to develop it into a full version, it will need several changes to become a good game. The first problem is graphics, which simply must be more detailed and have dark overtone to match the game's theme. Then you'll need to find another soundtrack piece, preferably from the martial genre. Finally, I think that writing requires some correction, since some of the game text sounds unnatural, even if there are no actual grammar or spelling errors.

Nevertheless, consider me intrigued. I realise that you only had twenty hours to create this, bund spend more time on it and the game may be a real hit.
