Phogs asks the age-old question: “What if two dogs but stuck together by a giant, rubbery membrane?”
And my answer to that question… is…
Red and Blue are two gloriously cute dogs that are stuck together by a long, stretchy, gelatinous gut. You can control both heads by yourself on one controller, or play with a friend (on either one controller or two). You can grab onto things with each mouth, or hold down a button to stretch away from the other head. An example of how this works is that there’s one puzzle where you have to grab an object on a lower level without leaving the higher level. One head grabs onto a post so that the body stays in place, and the other one stretches down to the lower level, grabs it, and comes back.
This game is perfect for pretty much everyone, it’s absolutely the cutest game I’ve played in years. Everything in the demo that I played made me go “Awwww, look at the little face on it, it’s so CUTE”. Seriously, if you’ve seen anything about the game, you know exactly what I mean. There were actually some pretty clever uses of the game mechanics that made for some fun, goofy puzzles.
Even the Moon in this game has a cute little happy face, which is fitting because it’s the last thing you see in the demo. Everyone that I saw playing the game was having a great time, and the team put together one hell of a booth all by themselves, they should be proud of everything they did last weekend. Check out the screenshots below for a closer look at the game, and seriously, just wait for this game to come out, it’s going to be so worth the wait. Also shout out to my man Jack Sanderson for being incredibly fun and funny to chat with while we played together. He’s got a glorious beard, and luxurious accent, and did a swell job in everything he did at PAX.
