Description

Butt Sniffin Pugs is a city-life exploration game about pugs, butt sniffin', and friendship! It's that one game that uses "pug butt controllers" to advocate videogame accessibility and games about "just having fun".

In other words...it’s a game about using “pug powers” to explore daily, creative, and goal-oriented tasks in the unique world of "Central Bark"!

As Central Bark flows from day to night, different quests, characters, and events will appear. The interweaving morning, noon, and night quests combined with the other park activities make it so that no matter the hour, Central Bark is always alive with new ways to play.

BSP is a basically a love letter to open-ended games like Animal Crossing...but contains a layer of simplistic design so that gameplay will be easygoing and accessible for all audiences!

And when we say "all audiences", we literally mean everyone....kids, adults, grandparents, people with disabilities, everyone! We want everybody to be able to experience the joy of videogames through BSP, regardless if they play games or not.
