Twitter tells me that August 26 is International Dog Day, and I don’t care whether that’s a made-up holiday or not – it’s an excuse to spend the work day looking at dog pictures so it’s now my favourite occasion on the calendar. Luckily, several game developers have been happy to oblige today with pictures and the occasional video of numerous adorable canines. Since we’re on the eve of Control’s release, maybe we should start with a reminder of Uuno the mocap dog, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier who got his fifteen minutes of fame when Remedy posted a video of him in a mocap suit. Now, he’s on an ad at the metro stop just outside the studio to thank the team for their efforts. That’s a good boy! Similarly, Ubisoft Montreal shared a new video of a Golden Retriever and a German Shepherd in their own mocap suits, though we don’t know what project these pups are in for. Maybe Watch Dogs Legion is reversing its no dogs policy after all? We can only hope – but as long as the animation work from these pups ends up somewhere, it’s all good.
