Sometimes a game’s artwork tells you all you need to know about a game, and thanks to a picture of a joyfully happy doggo with two heads we are totally here for PHOGS! What’s even better is that PHOGS! and that cheery canine are going to arrive from the pound on the 3rd of December for Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, Xbox One, PS4 and PC. If you’re one of the lucky folk who’ve picked up an Xbox Series X|S or a PS5 by that point, you’ll be able to get in on the fun via backwards compatibility too!
Coming from Coatsink and Bit Loom Games, PHOGS! sees you play as a pair of dogs on a charming puzzling adventure. The two doggos are joined by a long and stretchy sausage-like belly, and you’ll find yourself barking, biting and bouncing your way through a host of obstacles and challenges. There’s also a raft of themed worlds to make your way across, labelled as Food, Sleep and Play.
PHOGS! boasts a single player experience, as well as local and online co-op where you’re going to have to collaborate on your doggy adventure to make sure you get home for a nap in your basket.
It looks delightful, with your two headed doggo stretching its way around all sorts of colourful worlds including a sun-kissed beach, a creepy haunted house and a mountain made of ice-cream which is already making me hungry just looking at it. It claims to be family friendly, but I’m presuming that the co-op mode sees each player taking control of one end of the dog, which is bound to create all sorts of family-ruining shenanigans. There seems to be an emphasis on chewing on things, with both of your dog’s getting their teeth into everything in sight. December 3rd can’t come soon enough!
