The first release by Gory Detail, The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup is a 2D puzzle game where you must lead a mechanical dog by the nose through an intricate industrial maze. Featuring the charm and wit you'd expect from the developers of Conker's Bad Fur Day, this Steam release slows down the pace, dishing out relaxation and dread in equal measure. But don't just take out word for it!

From the original creators of Conker's Bad Fur Day, comes a delicately told tale of a dog which thinks it's a toy, or is it a toy that thinks it's a dog? Lost and alone in a richly detailed 2D world, you must help lead our sad pooch back home again......Just in time for tea.

Not for the faint-hearted, explore this dark and dingy labyrinth. Avoid its pitfalls, exploit its treasure, relish its marvels and so save those souls from a fate worse than death.

Light the way, drop in shadow, lay a scent, break his fall, grab a friend, fill that belly, make a bridge, set the fuse, plant a bomb, trap the monster, be his eyes and his heart, feed him up, wind that clock.

Afraid of the dark, afraid of the depths, afraid even of his own shadow, Rusty needs his master. Resources abound, find them fast and forge new paths.. Keep him on track but don't dawdle too much, lest time catches up.

The murk and dank are not the only foes, for in these depths lurk others who've made this place their home. Sometimes they help, but most just don't care. You're passing through so stay alert and lay a path, that gentle nudge, that double bluff to bring our pup a little closer...To home.

And yet, this little pup has a mind of his own, so keep one eye on your friend but stay mindful of the daunting tasks that lay hidden ahead of him. Push him or cojole, trap him or avoid, awake or in slumber, Rusty will usually do as he is done by. Usually !
