Evildarkzombies: Imagine hunting zombies with a corgi! :P

Looked up some more information on the beagle and we really like the fact that they are great trackers and they look very cute. There are definitely pretty good chance to see this breed in game :)

Jake The Doge: We can't wait either! :)
(While I write this message one of the team ferret is making a mess on my work desk haha)

YAY CORGIS! That sounds awesome, can`t wait for the finished product. Maybe one of the breeds could be a beagle. Pros: They are fast, a bit small sure, but they have an excellent sense of smell. Cons: because of their floppy ears, they can`t hear as well.

Yeah things are pretty alright. Could be better though haha. But that is life I suppose. Very good to hear how close it is. I really can not wait for it to a finished product!

Hey Evildarkzombies! We're not quite sure yet for the breeds! There was so much to think about for the demo, we didn't reach that stage yet haha! ;)
But I say Absolutely for the fast hunting dog! There will be a quick small dog for sure. Also a german shepherd would rock, they just look so cool!
Once the demo is ready, we'll start thinking about this and we will also be very open to suggestions! Who knows, maybe we'll make an easter egg Corgi unlockable somewhere in game :P

Hey Jake The Doge! We really hope everything is alright man!
Yeah, video games are probably the best way to take a break from real life! I totally agree on that! ;)
To keep you updated, things are progressing very well, we're at least at 15% soon, 85% very soon! Way better than last time huh haha!
But seriously, the game is almost playable right now, just needs some more tweaks! We're adding more equipment and working on the game intro, which took wayyy more time than we though haha! Cheers, we're almost there! ;)

that will be awesome! by the way, what exactly are the breeds? I mean, one of them is obviously a husky, but you dont have to tell us. it would be cool to know though. :)
