Live life as a dog and enjoy a relaxing adventure in ‘Butt Sniffin Pugs’

Filed inside: Games

We live in a gaming world that is constantly evolving. Developers live on the cutting edge and are hot on the trail of the latest and greatest gaming innovations. Each year we see an abundance of new and exciting adventures that push the envelope and reshape genres. It’s a lot to take in, and it’s easy to find yourself overwhelmed by the immense amount of challenging content. Sometimes it can be just a tad too much, and you find yourself looking for something a little more relaxing. This is where games like Peggle, Animal Crossing, and Stardew Valley come in. These titles were crafted with love for a hectic gaming community, as a means of relaxation and enjoyment. It’s hard to imagine these types of games being a rarity, but sometimes it can be difficult to find a release that offers up senseless fun. Developer SpaceBeagles is hoping to remedy that with their upcoming release Butt Sniffin Pugs.

There are no enemies to trample, or bosses to fight. You won’t find elaborate quest lines or dusty old maps promising treasure. The puzzles won’t blow your mind and the story arc won’t leave you in tears. This wacky-named title has but one purpose: to entertain. Butt Sniffin Pugs puts you in the paws of a happy-go-lucky pug and tosses you into the canine paradise of Central Bark. This utopia is crawling with a vast array of dog-friendly goodies and is flanked by some very prominent (and excellently punned) areas. You won’t find yourself inundated with a massive list of things you must complete and places you must travel. You’re free to experience Butt Sniffin Pugs as you want, on your time, and without much direction.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do in the whimsical world of Central Bark. You’ll find plenty of objects to interact with, things to collect, and new friends to make. Your pug lives a happy life atop a special tree house located near the center of the park. You’ll be able to customize this living space and bring in a variety of new and interesting objects to help decorate the elaborate home. Objects can be purchased by exchanging bones you find lying around the park. Helping out other dogs and individuals around the park will also reward you with special items and costumes. There are a variety of ways to collect things, so you’ll want to make sure you scour every possible corner of Central Bark. This is the basic premise for Butt Sniffin Pugs, which sees you bettering your living space, interacting with the world, and simply having fun.

What makes this release truly impressive is what developers are working on behind the scenes. AbleGamers Charity is working in conjunction with the development team to help bring the world of Butt Sniffin Pugs to everyone. This will allow the creators to craft specialized controllers and control schemes to allow those with physical disabilities to enjoy the magical world of Butt Sniffin Pugs. Developers are promising us an experience that can be enjoyed by absolutely everyone, regardless of age and familiarity with video games. This is the perfect title to help us bridge the gap between hardcore gamers and casual players. We need more releases like this that will cater to the entire gaming community, instead of just detailed niches.

SpaceBeagles has taken to Kickstarter to help secure direct funding for this upcoming release, and are planning to use the funding to grow the world of Central Bark exponentially before release. They’ve also added some stretch goals to offer even greater incentive to those of you looking forward to this adventure.
