It looks like dog owners will be getting a fun new experience to take on the go, later this year!
Little Rock Games and Freedom! Games have announced To The Rescue, a new simulation game heading to Nintendo Switch and Steam in Fall 2021. The game will see players managing all aspects of their very own dog shelter – with tasks ranging from finding forever homes for each dog, raising funds to keep kennels open, and nursing your occupants back to health!
Additionally, 20% of the game’s profits will go to actual pet shelters.
Check out the official trailer below, along with a press release:
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Feb. 25, 2021.
The video game publisher Freedom Games and indie games developer Little Rock Games, are today very delighted and thrilled to announce that their heartfelt dog shelter management sim “To The Rescue” is coming to PC (via Steam) and the Nintendo Switch (via the Nintendo Eshop) in late 2021.
Build a shelter and help stray pups find good new homes with loving families. Construct an ideal environment to meet the needs of man’s best friend and maximize their chances to be adopted. Caring for dozens of doggos is rewarding, but the mission has its share of challenges as well.
Every pooch has their own personality. It’s important to get to know each dog and find out what makes them unique. People have their preferences too, so learning what they’re looking for in a pupper is critical when making matches that will last a lifetime.
Between visits from potential pet parents, there’s never a dull moment. Shelters have plenty of mouths to feed and treating illnesses like kennel cough is always a concern. Then there’s logistics to worry about. It takes no shortage of supplies to keep the operation up and running.
Meanwhile, someone has to manage the finances and make sure to keep the lights on. Shelters need to be thrifty and make hard decisions. Hiring staff and dealing with investors is as much a part of the job as scritching Rex behind the ears and giving Fido belly rubs. There can be tough times, but at the end of the day helping dogs find their forever homes is always worth it.
“The challenges dog shelters and their volunteers face every day truly inspire us,” said Olivia Dunlap, co-founder, Little Rock Games.
“It’s a setting we felt was ripe for exploration in games and we look forward to bringing this world to Nintendo Switch and Steam later this year.”
To The Rescue! will be available in late 2021 for Nintendo Switch as well as Steam on PC and Mac for $19.99. The development team pledges 20 percent of profits to pet shelters.
