Em-bark on a therapeutic adventure around a peaceful island paradise as an adorable Corgi with superpowers! Relax and savor this bite-sized, open-world experience that donates to animal shelters.



Long Description

You are Corgster. Go on an island vacation to teach people to love like a dog. Some say you're too stubby to reach the top of the mountain. Use your ancient corgi superpowers to prove them wrong! Along the way, teach islanders to love like a dog and enjoy the little things in life. There's no death and no violence in this corgilicious adventure!

Be a Corgi Unleashed!
Choose your own path around the island and explore your way. Relax at cozy spots, grow your collections, or talk to locals. It's all your choice. You can even toggle the pixelized Nostalgia Mode on or off in the settings of the game!

Don't let stubby legs stop you!
You don’t need to be a bird to fly or a cat to climb! Collect Corgi Butt Power to use ancient corgi superpowers to prove you're not too stubby to make it wherever you wish.

Teach people to love unconditionally, just like a dog!
You're man's best friend for a reason. Help islanders with their problems, just like dogs do! Show them that they don't have to be attached to the stresses of their minds - be more present, like a dog!

Relax at secret Cozy Spots
Enjoy the serenity of the island’s natural beauty at special cozy spots. Put your controller down and delight in the peaceful music and animations. Maybe now’s a good time to do that work you've been putting off or do some creative journaling or drawing?

Customize Your Appearance
My corgi is Corgster, a Pembroke Welsh good boy. What type of corgi will you be? Tri-color? Blue Merle?, or more? Want Hats, Glasses, or Capes? Yes, please!

Studio Description

“We are a two-person team that makes games that make the world a better place. Our non-violent games help people relax and have fun. We donate 20% of our revenue from our mobile games to animal shelters - totaling over $15,000! Our most supported shelters include Dog Gone Seattle and Austin Pets Alive and have helped more than 30 dogs get adopted thanks to our players and merchandise customers.”


Can you pet the dog? 

Heck, you ARE the dog! People will pet YOU! (oh and there are other dogs for you to boop, too)

How do you donate to animal shelters?

We choose shelters that are known to do stellar work and need the money. Dog Gone Seattle has been the default organization we work with because they rescue dogs from across the country in kill-shelters that have struggled finding homes to bring them to Seattle and give them everything they need to get adopted. We will be donating to more shelters across the country, and maybe even some across the world in time.

Why does the game look pixelated? 

Some of our trailers and screenshots show off our Nostalgia Filter, which can be enabled in the settings menu. The default look is a 4K/HD cel-shaded look.

Game Background

Before A Corgi’s Cozy Hike, we made Rescue Pets and Rock Miner, two mobile games with a loving fanbase. Inspired by all of the people who fell in love with our mission and games, we wanted to do more, and frankly, we were tired of working on ads and in-app purchases, which is required to make money on mobile. We always wanted to make a PC/console game, but we were worried it could be too large for our skillset - we didn’t know if we could do it. 

Inspired by A Short Hike and our experiences visiting West Virginia, one day, we sat down and started working on A Corgi’s Cozy Hike. I’m glad we did. The process was faster than expected, and we quickly fell in love with what we were making, both the fun gameplay and the beautiful stories. After posting videos of our progress daily, we were overjoyed by the kind words received on social media. 

By the end of December, we knew A Corgi’s Cozy Hike will be a special experience. We committed to releasing it as a short-but-sweet experience, packed with cuteness, love, and cozy moments.
