Touch Pets Dogs: Producer Q&A
Check out Kidzworld’s interview with Andrew Stern, producer for the brand-new Touch Pets Dogs iPhone game from ngmoco!
KW: Does Touch Pets Dogs let you choose your own breed?
AS: Yes. You begin at an Adoption Shelter, with a variety of breeds, both female and male, with varying personalities per dog. Some breeds have varying fur patterns too.
KW: What breeds of dogs can you choose from?
AS: There are currently seven breeds to choose from: Labradors, German Shepherds, Westies, Dachshunds, Portuguese Water Dogs, Jack Russells - and Robot Dogs!
KW: Do the different breeds vary in terms of personality, traits, behaviors, etc? If so, how, and should this affect the breed of dog players pick at the start of the game?
AS: Yes, any dog can have its own personality - it's not tied to the breed, it's just what that particular dog happens to be like. Some dogs are adventurous, some shy, some are kind or generous, some are bit domineering. Your puppy's personality matters most when you start bringing dogs on play-dates with your friends' dogs - it will affect how likely two dogs are to become friends or fall in love. And Robot Dogs are a little different - they eat Robot Food, of course.
