I have seen this game touted in at least two journals, with no warnings, and I wanted to warn others who might be as distressed as I am. The game is called "Puppy Shelter", and ostensibly it is a puzzle game to "train" cute little puppies to get them adopted-- 15 levels. The problem is that after you train the puppies, the shelter opens for adoptions, then closes and none of the puppies are ever adopted. You are required to "put down" all of the current group of puppies to advance to the next level.

I know it's just clicking on pixilated images, and I know I am probably too soft-hearted, but I found the whole thing very distasteful. Frankly the puzzles were not worth the effort even if there were no dead puppy imagery involved. Apparently the whole point is to teach people that life isn't fair or something. Thanks, I learned that lesson a half century ago, I don't need a refresher from some kid on the internet.

Ick. What the hell were the game designers thinking? Or were they?
If I wanted real life, I wouldn't be playing on my computer. Yo Game designers: Think happy outcomes. What the hell....
I'm sorry Pat, you probably didn't need that reminder any more than I did. BOYC?
