Every morning dozens of stray dogs make the commute by train from the Moscow suburbs to the downtown core in search of food and fortune.

Welcome comrades! Meet Russian Subway Dogs, a fast-paced action-arcade game inspired by the real-life stray dogs of the Moscow Metro. We have done extensive, totally legal research in order to fine-tune this chaotic simulation of what it's like to scavenge for food from Russian commuters. Surviving isn't easy when you are dodging volatile vodka, rival dogs, and the rare and dangerous Subway Bear!

Russian Subway Dogs is already playable, super frantic, and fun. With your help we can make it bigger and better! We have some great rewards to thank you for backing us, and our talented team is raring to go!

Russian Subway Dogs will be available through Steam and itch.io upon release, and we are aiming to launch simultaneously on Windows and Mac. 

 

  • Levels inspired by the world-famous architecture of the Moscow subway system, rendered in meticulously detailed pixel art.
  • Mission mode filled with unique challenges from your kitty comrade the Proletaricat! 
  • An extensive endless mode with online leaderboards. 
  • Over a dozen food and drink items to consume: gyros, burgers, cabbage, beets, herring, kvass, pigeon, pelmeni and more! 
  • Diverse subway wildlife including, rival dogs, poodles, rats, elk and bears!
  • Bomb your enemies with exploding vodka! 
  • Simple "pick up and play" gameplay with a deep scoring system to keep you coming back. 
  • Silky smooth 60fps gameplay. 
  • Adorable Russian puppers!

 

A round of Russian Subway Dogs is all about eating, eating eating! Consuming food both increases your score and keeps your stomach life bar full. 

Scare up food by barking behind commuters, they'll throw whatever they're holding into the air.

Grab food before it hits the ground. Air food is both more filling and higher scoring. Avoid dropping your food and you'll rack up high scoring combos!

Watch out for passengers carrying vodka! It's no good for doggies and highly explosive.

Your barks can also deflect falling food or vodka. Well aimed vodka helps you get rid of rival dogs and wildlife and heats up your food. Hot food = more points and more filling meals!

Fail to eat enough or take too much damage and the round will end. Your doggie will have to head home to forage another day. 

 

Unlike most score attack arcade games, Russian Subway Dogs is full of little touches of simulation, adding depth and emergent gameplay. Food can be warmed up with explosions to make it more filling. Hot food that isn't eaten quickly will burn away. Snowdrifts can be cleared away with vodka explosions but also melt faster if hit with hot food, cooling the food back down. Bears fatten up if overfed. Power-up items like coffee or kvass provide equally powerful upgrades to rival dogs who eat them. The more you play, the more of these touches you'll discover.

The Moscow Metro does in fact have a population of stray dogs who commute each day in search of food. They've learned to identify specific stops, where they can find the best street food, and how to trick or surprise people into feeding them. There's even a statue at Mendeleevskaya station memorializing a famous stray, Malchik!

The Moscow Metro has some of the most beautiful, unique stations in the world, making it a perfect setting to draw inspiration from. Originally built during the Soviet era around the concept of svetloe budushchee, “A Radiant Future”, these stations resemble palaces and art galleries with sculptures, stained glass windows, gilt framed paintings, and roman columns. We’re working from hundreds of reference photos to accurately capture the spirit of each station in pixels, while adding a bit of fun canine content to the mix. Here are a few of the stations featured in the game!

 

 

 

Russian Subway Dogs started as a jam game created for the GDC Pirate Kart. This early gameplay sketch was very well received with coverage on Indiegames.com as well as several let’s plays in both English and Russian and was chosen as an official selection for Fantastic Fest’s Fantastic Arcade in Austin, Texas. 

 

Inspired by this positive response we’ve been improving Russian Subway Dogs by adding more detailed animations, revamped physics and 60fps gameplay, a deep combo system, new commuters, food types, bears, snowdrifts, and more!

Now we’re ready to take Russian Subway Dogs to the next level! We're packing it full of new content and gameplay modes, then releasing it commercially on Steam. With your help we can make canine magic happen!

 

 

Travel from station to station taking on missions from the Proletaricat, your feline commander. Missions include a specific combination of commuters and wildlife with a time / score goal you have to beat. However the real meat of the mission is a series of extra sub-challenges. These range from requiring deft hand-eye coordination to puzzling out deeper mechanics. For example:

  • Complete the mission with a vegetarian diet.
  • Don't let the poodles eat any food.
  • Get a 6 x Tasty Kombo.
  • Eat six pigeons. 

Complete enough subchallenges and you’ll open up the next station with a new set to solve! 

  

We're adding a whole range of new commuters and wildlife to the mix. Flighty pigeons, stout babushkas wielding giant herring, annoying balalaika players, and irate subway elk are only a few of the upcoming additions!

  

Kvass, coffee, hot sauce and other new foods will provide game changing powerups not just for the player, but also any rival dogs who eat them. There’s nothing more annoying than a toy poodle moving double-quick on a caffeine high stealing all your food, so make sure you grab any powerups before they do!

 

Arcade games are best when you can show off your skill and compete globally with other players so we're adding online leaderboards! For those looking for a solo challenge we're also including lots of interesting skill-based achievements to aim for.   

 

We're bringing the talented Peter Chapman on board to create a brand new original soundtrack. You may be familiar with his work on award winning games such as Guacamelee!, LittleBigPlanet Karting and Modnation Racers. He'll be producing his own unique electronic take on traditional Eastern European folk music for Russian Subway Dogs. Listen to the first track here!

 

We're adding a whole bunch of polish every step of the way. Improvements and additions like animated backgrounds, new sound effects, particle effects, play balancing, and more. We want to lavish as much love as we can on Russian Subway Dogs, adding all those little details that take a game from good to great! 

 

We want Russian Subway Dogs to be enjoyed around the world so we'll be localizing it into as many languages as possible! 

 

Want to play as a the Proletaricat? A goat? Cerberus the three headed hound of hell? Work together during the Kickstarter campaign to complete community backer missions and spread the word about Russian Subway Dogs. The more backer missions completed the more bonus characters we'll add to the game. 

 

   

These community achievements are a fun way to stay involved after you back (or before!) and help us spread the word. The Proletaricat will be keeping track and updating the achievement board above throughout the campaign. Every time four achievements are completed she'll poll the community and you will get to pick which fantastical "pup" will be added to the game! 

 Submit fan art, photos and videos to the Proletaricat by tweeting them at @spookysquid or spookysquidgames.tumblr.com or on the Russian Subway Dogs Facebook page at fb.com/russiansubwaydogs. We can only count submissions through those channels so be sure to send them our way!

Located in the snowy wastes of Toronto Canada, Spooky Squid Games was founded in 2008 by Miguel Sternberg and Andrij Pilkiw. Best known for their lo-fi gothic platforming beat’em up They Bleed PIxels, they have also released a number of bite sized free games including Night of the Cephalopods, Cephalopods Co-op Cottage Defence and The Night Balloonists. The most recent addition to the team, artist Alina Sechkin, joined the company in 2015.

  

Pixel artist and game designer Miguel Sternberg is a veteran of Toronto’s thriving indie game scene. In addition to co-founding Spooky Squid Games, he’s a former co-founder of Capybara Games and The Hand Eye Society, a videogame arts and culture organization where he started Comics vs Games, a project encouraging collaboration between independent comic and game developers

In addition to co-creating They Bleed Pixels his game design credits include several smaller games including Night of the Cephalopods, Cephalopods Co-op Cottage Defence, Black Church Brigandage (with comic artist Andy Belanger) and The Night Balloonists (with programmer Andrij Pilkiw). 

A professional pixel artist for over a decade, his art has graced the back cover of Scott Pilgrim Gets it Together, the movie Crank and the web game Legends of Zork among others. 

Before working in games he killed an old woman in Cube 2: Hypercube with time crystals, and animated reindeer mouths.

An alumni of Toronto's DMG program, Alina Sechkin's pixel art appears in Will O’Neill's Actual Sunlight and Necrosoft's Playstation Vita game Oh, Deer! as well as at the DPAD2 game culture exhibition. She joined the Spooky Squid Games team last year where she’s been contributing her pixel art talents to a number of to be announced projects. 

A composer for both videogames and television, Peter Chapman has worked on award winning video games such as Guacamelee and Sound Shapes as well as Modnation Racers, Little Big Planet Karting and the retro kitch sci-fi game About a Blob. His score for The Castle Game was nominated for “Best Original Music” at the 2015 Canadian Videogame Awards.  

We first found out about Peter's music from his fantastic solo work as Coins and Peter Project and are super excited to work with him on Russian Subway Dogs!

  

Here's a rough breakdown of where the $50,000 Kickstarter funding will go:

  • 10% [$5000] will go to Kickstarter fees and taxes. 
  • 23% [$11,500] will go to creating and shipping the rewards based on our predictions of what tiers will be most popular. Of course the exact amount may change depending on what levels everyone backs at.
  • 4% [$2000] will go towards localization costs getting the game translated. 
  • 63% [$31,500]  will go towards game production: art, code, sound and music.

Risks and challenges

While no project is risk free, the risks for Russian Subway Dogs are minimal. The core gameplay of Russian Subway Dogs is up and running and already fun to play. We already have experience releasing a game on Steam with They Bleed Pixels and Russian Subway Dogs is already approved for release on the platform. We just need the time and funds to expand it, adding more variety, content, and polish. A challenge our team is well equipped to take on!

FAQ

  • Probably! We have the current alpha running perfectly on a few dev kits in the office (we can't say which though). However there are a lot of steps (and paperwork!) between getting basic gameplay running on the hardware and releasing it as a finished product.

    Right now we want to really concentrate on making Russian Subway Dogs the best game it can be. Once it's released on Steam we'll start thinking about consoles.

    Last updated:
  • Maybe? We'd really like to! However since Linux is a bit trickier and less standard then Mac or Windows we want to do some test builds before committing.
