Treat Boy is a game where the player goes through an adventure with a dog to collect treats. My project addresses the relationship pets and owners have that improve both of their lives. I came up with my idea by trying to integrate other concepts that would not normally go together. It was also inspired by my brother who has recently been isolating himself and I wondered if getting a pet would help him when we can not be there for him. If I were given more time I would add more story and levels so the player would learn more about the topic.
Hi Kelly, Thanks for submitting your project to Emoti-Con!! Hands down - Very impressed with your game. I went ahead and completed your game. All the visuals - backgrounds and sprites clearly had a lot of work put into it - from concept art to product. I also found the following dog a nice touch that fit well with the theme of the project. For a future version of this game, I would love to see some animation frames for the character - either a walk cycle or jump animation. I also think that the motivation behind this game is great. It can make a difference for those who need a companion. Keep up the great work here whether it be here or in other game projects. Thank you for submitting your project. I think it can inspire those who look at it :) -Charlie
