A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Full game available on itch.io: https://quill-studios.itch.io/a-summer-with-the-shiba-inu

When Syd the Shiba Inu returns to Shiba Island after a ten year absence, she sets off a chain of events that overturns the lives of all the dogs she had left behind. She gets back in touch with her old friend, Max, and along the way meets a mysterious Labrador retriever named Quei-Li. (What’s a Lab doing on the Island, anyway?) They are her only remaining allies as she tries to survive the past that made her leave the Island in the first place.

Additional, totally unasked for features such as:

  • Dog bark button in preference menu
  • Random facts about dogs in menus
  • Some other stuff where the game will notice how long you take to make a decision ;)
  • Dogs galore!

Once again, thank you so much for waiting, and I really am honored that you took time out of your holidays to check this out :)
