Our hero Pup wakes up one day overhearing their human talking about Updog. What is Updog? Is it food? Is it a place? Pup has to know! Set out on a journey around town and find out the answer to this very mysterious question.

What's Updog? is a point and click adventure with 2D overworld exploration made for the original Game Boy! This was made as a personal game jam over the course of 6 weeks and is my first completed game!

This game has a pun resolution of at least one per screen :D


Thanks for providing your awesome music on itch!


will there be a psychical version,since i don't want to pay for a digital file.

I am not currently planning a physical release at this time.


Can you make this compatible with the Analogue Pocket? :) Should just be a quick export in gb studio
