Dogs Playing Poker! ♠ Video Trailer!



Hello fellow TA'ers!

Candywriter is thrilled to announce Dogs Playing Poker for iPhone and iPaw'd Touch! Yes, its both exactly what you think it is and exactly what it sounds like, a comic salute to blue collar America!

We've been working on Dogs Playing Poker for over a year now and are very close to release. Each day on this thread, I will post a new dog and describe a new feature from the game. For now, please sit back and enjoy our video trailer!

Dog of the Day: Ximena (Chihuahua)

Don't be fooled by this hot-tempered Chicana firebrand. Contrary to first glance, no one pushes around little Ximena although many a stray mongrel have been sent packing for trying.

Feature of the Day: Unlocking Dogs

In Dogs Playing Poker, you begin by creating a dog with the breed of your choice. Each time you win a five-round tournament, you'll unlock a new dog breed that you can use for your own pooch.

Dog of the Day: Duke (English Bulldog)

This old malcontent mug has ridden some rough waves. Duke is an ex-fighter and spends his time haggard from alcohol and debt, ambling the streets in lonesome stupors.

Feature of the Day: "Every Dog Has Its Day"

"Every Dog Has Its Day" profiles the highest earning pooch in the world on the game's splash screen as the day progresses. Each night at midnight, the tables are cleared and a new day begins.

Dog of the Day: Dmitri (Siberian Husky)

On the outside, he's a stoic north shore oil imperial. On the inside and with his money at stake, Dmitri quickly turns on the grit, snarling and heaving at ease, yet rarely left out in the cold.

Feature of the Day: Petting the Dogs!

Should you feel so inclined, you can pet your dog by rubbing his/her belly during play! But be careful, your dog will be very jealous should you pet another!

Dmitri looks like a lady killer.

Dog of the Day: Klaus (German Shepherd)

Klaus recently escaped a respectful - and prolific - career as a drug dog at McCarran and stumbled into the night game on his way out of town. Although awake for days and cranky, Klaus is still a shark in this house.

Feature of the Day: Hand Strength Meter

Dogs Playing Poker displays a hand strength meter next to your cards whenever its your turn to move (see above next to the German Shepherd's 10-6 offsuit). This meter is designed to help you establish a quick visual approximation of your hand's strength. Advanced players can turn this feature off via the game's Settings.

I was fortunate enough to have played this game and it is very cool! Candywriter makes some very polished and fun games (Word Solitaire is one of my all time favs) and Dogs Playing Poker is no exception.

The cool thing is that it's not just cute and funny (which it is), it's also a great poker sim. I play poker daily on my iPhone so this fits right in for me.

Waiting to see the next dog here in this thread.
