In GOOD DOG, you are a good dog.

Spend a day at your workplace, cheering up patients at the hospital. Wag your tail, smooch and cuddle to lift spirits, but be aware that not everyone responds the same way to every interaction! Find the appropriate one for each patient and cheer them up.

  • Run around
  • Bark at people (goodly)
  • Wag your tail, lick and cuddle 
  • Support a worthy cause
  • Be good

GOOD DOG is a charity microgame made over a few weeks for fun - it's completely free to play, but any and all money you may choose to donate will go directly to charity. Currently, we're donating to:

UPDATE: The first round of donations amounted to 200 USD, which has now been split between both charities! Thank you for your generosity, everyone <3   

DIRECT RELIEF to aid COVID-19 Relief in India, and

REBUILDING ALLIANCE for their Gaza Emergency Relief Fund and to help rebuild homes in Palestine.

how to open on Mac cause mine isn't workin

You might have to cmd+click and open specifically, I know one or two players had to. Then again, one person reported not being able to open the game at all on Big Sur :/

oof welp-


I have Big Sur and can open it. Sometimes games won't work if I download them from the Itch website, but they will work if I download and launch them from the Itch app (this was true on Catalina too).
