Dog Park
by Kevin Cancienne
Become a dog as you chase, wrestle, cavort and gambol with other players in a chaotic struggle to have as much fun as you can. A fighting game without the fighting, Dog Park asks you to release your inner pup. Dog Park debuts right before VIA at NYU’s No Quarter show in New York City on September 19, 2014.
