G.I. JOE-Inspired Real Time Tactics video game Dog Duty, a six-year project developed by the two-person development studio Zanardi & Liza, released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam today. Check out the official trailer!
In Dog Duty you control a squad of misfits as they go up against some evil bigwig Octopus Commander and his army who are threatening world-peace. Go into combat and use guerrilla warfare to eliminate all octo-scum. Fight on top of your moving vehicle as you go from island to island to liberate outposts and defeat wicked bosses in their crazy octo-machines. Wreck those squids up, but beware, they’re well-armed.
Dog Duty's brand-new launch trailer gives a sneak peek of all the action that awaits the players. Check it out below:
Leonardo Zimbres, founder and lead developer of Zanardi & Liza, created Dog Duty with his spirit and personal experiences in mind. Nostalgic memories from classic games and TV series such as Commandos, G.I. Joe and The Powerpuff Girls helped shape Dog Duty into a retro-looking Real Time Tactics game with a healthy dose of humor.
What started as a small project on PC, grew into a game that’s now available on multiple platforms. With the help of SOEDESCO Studios, Zanardi & Liza were able to bring Dog Duty to console. Leonardo looks back at a fruitful collaboration: ‘not only did they focus on the console version of the game, SOEDESCO Studios also helped me gain new insights and they moved Dog Duty into a direction that definitely made it more fun to play.’ An in-depth interview with Leonardo reveals how Dog Duty came to be and sheds light into his six-year development process.
