A scavenger hunt with your dog, what will you find today?
Loot Hound is a casual exploration game with elements of sim and strategy where you play the role of a hoarder, pack-rat, and collector of amazing things that you find meaning in and you’ve discovered a great way to find them; take a dog for a walk and see what it digs up!
The Dogs - Marley can dig through rock, Wifi can squeeze into small spaces and Mr. Anderson is good at clearing the way. All have skills that you can train. Your dogs can detect, track, dig, be distracted, heal, wander, chase, be chased, break free, pee and become exhausted. Manage your walks carefully and work together to maximize your chances of finding all the loot.
The Parks - There are 12 parks to explore, from the Muddy Backlot to the Titanic Botanic through rain, snow, wind, clouds and sunshine. Control your dogs by extending, retracting and pulling on the leash when necessary but be careful because if the leash stretches too far it will snap free and you dogs will be loose! Parks can be busy too, with other animals, people and Park Patrol who will kick you out if they catch your dog digging up the grass.
The Loot - There are 132 loot items to collect, can you find them all? Keep your dogs senses keen and your ability to lead them in the right direction, or even having the right dog for the job, to improve your chances of detecting buried loot. Each loot item you discover reveals a little about your character's history and personality. View every item you find from your Loot Closet.
