Biscuit is ready for her debut! Lost and Hound, the adorable canine simulator title from Daisy Ale Soundworks will be arriving on Steam on August 17th. Follow Biscuit as she solves mysteries, tracks down criminals, finds people who are lost, and helps others who are in trouble. You’ll travel the world, meet other animals, and show just how far a determined Corgi can go and how much of a difference she can make (nothing is gonna stop those short little legs).
 


 

Lost and Hound is an investigative adventure where players will utilize Biscuit’s superior senses to help them navigate and piece together clues to solve mysteries and find those who are lost. As Biscuit you’ll travel around the world encountering a variety of situations and taking part in real-world working dog roles like seizure detection, sheep herding, and airport security.  In addition, Biscuit will also encounter other animal companions each with their own strengths, that players can take with them on missions.

In order to complete missions Biscuit will use her superhero senses of scent and hearing. Listen in on conversations picking up information that humans can’t hear such as the accelerated heartbeats of criminals on the run, and even hear through walls to piece together clues. Putting her snout to the grindstone, Biscuit picks up on scent clues to track leads and guide her in the right direction.

As a fully blind accessible title, Biscuit’s superior senses are represented by sound cues in
Lost and Hound. As Biscuit scent tracks, players are able to hear a pleasant low humming sound that changes audio direction and volume to indicate where Biscuit should go.
