So remember The Oregon Trail? The Sims? Tamagotchis?
Yeah, the Disney Channel has basically jumbled all of these together, and given it the ultimate doge makeover.
Under its Dog with A Blog umbrella, they’ve concocted a Halloween-themed interactive animated game where you can choose a pup to adopt, and then play with it, feed it, take care of it…
Basically, for kids, it’s a great primer to show them how much work it takes to have a dog WHILE encouraging them to adopt, not shop. For adults? It’s a massive time-suck into Internet animated neverland.
How? Well watch as one writer disappears into the puppytoon void…
You enter the portal…
You are presented with the puppy to choose. Oh MY SAINTED CUTE! HOW TO CHOOSE?! #OMG #ThisIsLikeRealLife
Finally, you close your eyes, listen to your heart and make a choice. And then comes the fun part: you name them!
Now you and your new fur bestie are together furever! What to do? Play? Feed? Accessorize? Fortunately, your pup lets you know what they need 🙂
Hold on, gotta take a photo for the memories…
Wait? They’re hungry? THEN WHY WON’T THEY EAT? WHY ARE THEY PLAYING FETCH INSTEAD?
EAT PUPPY! EAT FOR YOUR LIFE! WHY WON’T THEY–oh. You have to hover it over their head.
YAAAAAAAY! They’re so HAPPY! Ooooh, so much happiness and play has unlocked a ghost treat!
We’ll let you discover the rest of the joys on your safe. Suffice to say this is way better than Angry Birds because well…c’mon. Puppies versus Birds? Please, no contest as to who wins. To play the game, check it out here and then say au revoir to any free time you might have.
