English Visual Novels[]

When Syd the Shiba Inu returns to Shiba Island after a ten year absence, she sets off a chain of events that overturns the lives of all the dogs she had left behind. She gets back in touch with her old friend, Max, and along the way meets a mysterious Labrador retriever named Quei-Li. (What’s a Lab doing on the Island, anyway?) They are her only remaining allies as she tries to survive the past that made her leave the Island in the first place.

Game features
  • Vibrant illustrations based on real locations and local street food are a feast for the eyes.
  • Choices matter: multiple story branches as you find out the truth behind Syd, Quei-Li, and Max and their relation to The System that determines a dog’s value and standing.
  • Steam features planned: Steam achievements, trading cards, badges, backgrounds, and emoticons.
