If you're on a windows computer use the windows key and it should close it and then you can click on it in the toolbar again
this was the worst game about dogs I've played for all the right reasons. it just made me... so uncomfortable. pretty quickly in, i knew what this game was gonna be about, but i kept playing and it made me feel so... guilty. i did this to these poor dogs. even if you drew the horse to water, the horse is the one who drinks. and god did i want to spit it out.
10/10. i would never recommend this to a friend for the same reasons it's so impactful.
edit: this is supposed to be a nice comment about how the game's messages affected me but im mentally ill so im really sorry if this is mean
Any other idle/clicker games like Ruff Times, where it has dark themes but longer than Ruff Times? Enjoyed the horror aspect of a simple, cutesy clicker game. Been searching for one and I haven't found any, like a game that makes you question what your doing not just "serial killer idle"
i saw this game online and its SOOO adorable <3 every dog i get is the cutest :D the level 9 dog is even SUPER CUTE!!
It's actually pretty sad, especially since it happens quite a lot in real life.
level 9 dogs are.. a whole new breed, huh. extreme ethical dilemmas are present in this one! pawfect game :)
pff nvm I'm so stupid! I figured it out
This seems like a really cute game! It just wont let me play it. I downloaded it and I made an account?
I love that it brings the obscure side (aka the only side) of the breeding industry. Its fits so well with the "mutts aren't needed anymore!"
This game is soo cute and the dogs just melt my heart with their cuteness, especially the level 9 one!
left me speechless-
level 9 dog was interesting
this is awsome
about to download!!!!!! let's see the puppys look SOOO CUTE IN THE SCREENSHOT!!!
pretty good game! Uhm the level 9 doggo's tho... kinda was weird
Yeah... in retrospect the level 9 dog was a weird choice
I feel it could have worked better if the level 9 dog was.. let's just say, unmoving. Also a little more realistic looking. And maybe with a big bow on it, to fit with the level 8 dog.
DOG SAND UNDERTALE???
Not sure if it just doesn't work on a chromebook but whenever i download it and double click,it will bring me on the sticker network thing
looks cute tho
Alright, gonna play this.
i put the game on my desktop and when i try to open it a file pops up with the exe, when i click on he exe nothing happens hen when i tryed to get rid of it on my desktop an error pops up
can someone tell me how to play the game without downloading it or do I have to download it because my computer won't let me download zip files
hope i dont get one of the dogs kille
I mostly heard of this from LaurenzSide and Bijuu Mike on YouTube!
I'd just like to say that this game was both an amazing and humbling play! It may or may not have been your intention, but it definitely brings to light the horrors of the breeding industry and how it can go much too far. A wonderful, short play with a very important message.
Hello, thanks for playing so glad you enjoyed it!!
And yes, that was most definitely our intention - this game was part of a university project in which we were to make a "game for impact"
i heard this game was hounted and i think it is poor puppies i cold not sleep after plaing still shoo
damn this got dark really quickly
Nice game. That shit got DARK at, like, level 8 or 7
Hehe, thanks very much for your support!! We really appreciate it <3
What a cute game... Really cute... Hahaha..
(I really love the music, it suits the game perfectly!)
(Did I just said perfectly? I mean FUR-FETCH-LY)
How do you open the game?
Hi! To open the game, download then unzip the RuffTimes.zip and double click RuffTimes.exe.
Let us know if you have any problems.
can you make it so you can play it on the browser because i cannot play it ;-;
I know unhealthy dogs taking longer to get to food is supposed to be part of the challenge, but, when I keep losing a level 5 dog when, even though I dragged the food to a couple pixels away from its feet, a level 2 dog gets to it instead, it should probably be turned down a notch.
Other than that, I do like the game.
Probably should have a button to restart, quit, or make it not full screen.
Hiya, thank you for the support!! <3 Unfortunately, we won't be developing Ruff Times further. It was made for a university project and now we are all off working on our own (super cool) separate projects!!
very nice game its unique and enojoyable! also the art stule is really adorable and well made
thanks for the bit of trauma tho lol
I made the cutest pup :) Too bad the trash can got so full, ha ha silly dogs.
But in all sincerity this game is worth a play. It gets very unnerving and teaches it's lesson incredibly well. I would say more, but people should play it to see everything for themselves.
As a biologist, a geneticist, who studies domestication and domestic animals, this is an excellent demonstration of a very important problem. I wouldn't call it a "dilemma," i'd call it a "big fucking problem," but my point is this game portrays it very, very well.
I especially enjoy that the ill-bred dogs are slower to run to their food. So many pieces like this rely purely on visuals to indicate that these dogs are unhealthy, so it's wonderful to feel and experience as a player, on a practical level, how being ill-bred and unhealthy is leading dogs to early deaths. Plus the shaking of the VERY high-level dogs makes it hard to tell if they're eating properly... It's much more show than tell in a way that I feel games like this often fail. Congrats! Very smart game design.
Oh wow thank you!! This was actually made for a university assignment where we had to make a game for impact. A lot of research was conducted around the topic prior to game production, so we are very glad we were able to do the issue justice in the end!
you're welcome! I linked my friend to this game, told her nothing, and it made her cry for 2 days.
I like the commentary here.
I love the art! Amazing game, time to trick my friends into playing it >:)
I wish I could play this game but all I have is a Chromebook :"(
Why u have to do this to my heart....
Loving it by the way, the art, the theme, and the criticism.
