It’s now official. As the Atari 2600 was defined by its games featuring food and mazes, and the NES was defined by its 2D platformers, the Nintendo DS will forever be remembered as the system that had “all those f*cking games about dogs”. Sometimes it’s dogs made out of tea leaves. Other times it’s dogs ready to do serious battle. And of course, there are the Dogz. It’s all proof positive that today’s developers just can’t go more than a month without announcing a new dog-centric DS game.
The latest title in this highly sophisticated genreis called Inu Company, and it looks like it may take the dog game in a vastly different direction. According to the Google translation of the brief write-up on the game found at Famitsu, Inu Company will feature a storyline about dogs replacing humans at their jobs at a “comedy company”. Gameplay will apparently center around spreading rumors to get the boss to fire your coworkers. Wow. Glengarry Glen Ross + Nintendogs = Win. (link NSFW due to a few swears).
Could this really be everything we’ve ever wanted in a dog game? Or has that already happened?
