Dog Eat Dog
In the game of love, its a dog eat dog world out there. Literally, in the case of HollyRose's visual novel and RPG. In Dog Eat Dog, help Daryl find his missing pup, Tyke, while trying to fight off the canine infection called D.E.D. Hordes of dogs roam the street, attacking dog and human alike, and Daryl must find Tyke before its too late. On top of all this, a strange but slightly familiar (and very cute) woman has shown up at his door, professing to know him. Mystery abounds but so does love, because hey, there's no time like the present, even if that present is a near dog-zombie apocalypse. Make choices for Daryl that not only help him get with one of the two ladies that show up, but also unravel the mystery and attempt to save humanity.
Dog Eat Dog is a unique story with five different endings, and while replaying through can get a little old as not all the conversations change, it is definitely needed to fully understand the whole story. Not only does picking a woman change Daryl's love life, but it also gives a different perspective on things going down. Finishing it only once will leave some major plot holes as the other lines fill in these gaps and paint a vibrant picture. While there is a fighting system in place, it only really serves to break up from the conversations and further the story. No strategy is really needed and it would probably take a bit of doing to actually lose. As the game is more story involved it doesn't take away from the over all game play but boosts the tale. HollyRose does a very good job at making a semi-lighthearted games with some pretty dark themes. The Mystery is also well done enough that it's not one you can predict and as you replay you gain some exciting "Oh! That's explains it!" moments. As HollyRose's first game, Dog Eat Dog is not perfect, but it is a very well blended mix of mystery, action, dating simulator, and interactive fiction. Well, we just got to say that you set a high bar for your next game, HollyRose.
