A game about butt-sniffin' pugs is coming to PS4 and PC

It was inspired by 'Animal Crossing' and other similar games.

Butt Sniffin Pugs, a fun simulator featuring cute pugs exploring New Yorkie City (get it?), rescuing citizens in danger and sniffing food and butts, has conquered crowdfunding pledgers' hearts. It has successfully reached its goal on Kickstarter, and it's now scheduled to be released for PS4, Windows and Mac in the first quarter of 2018. Inspired by cute, open-ended games like Kirby and Animal Crossing, it was designed to cater to everyone, from people who barely play to big AC fans.

In an interview with Inverse, its developers (called SpaceBeagles) said they even worked with The AbleGamers Foundation to make sure people with visual and hearing impairments can play the game. While it presents you different quests and tasks for mornings, noons and nights, SpaceBeagles designed it so that even those who only play occasionally can feel like they accomplish something when they do visit.

Unfortunately, you can't pledge money to be part of the beta phase anymore. Since the lowest tier in campaign was worth $15, though, expect to pay a bit more than that to get the game when it comes out.
