Lincoln, NE, December 18, 2014 – Ever wondered what your dog might have to say about all the bad decisions they have silently watched you make? Independent developer Clockwork Demon is excited to announce Adopted, a PC game where players get to explore the messy side of human nature through the eyes of the family dog.
Adopted is a 3D, single-player exploration game where you play as Luchador, a recently rescued Boston Terrier thrust into a world of complex human problems with only a few simple tools to solve them. Players will sniff to discover important clues and then bark, chew, and fetch to manipulate their humans to make smart choices, or not. Unlike games where fail states give players do-overs, Adopted asks you to investigate and influence the right people in the right moments to produce real-time consequences that affect future gameplay and storyline.
“We want players to feel torn between their relationships with owners and constantly ask how they should spend their time and who they should be concerned about next,” said Clockwork Demon co-founder Leo Glass.
Adopted is scheduled for a 2016 release.
