Marshall, who in 2017 made the excellent sports activities satire Behold The Kickmen! hit Twitter this week in fist-shaking despair, cursing Cooper’s willpower in giving his sport’s canine a pat on the pinnacle. “The dog, and the convoluted difficulty in petting the dog, was entirely put into the game with the specific intention of trolling Can You Pet The Dog,” Marshall admitted.
I’m really fairly offended about this as a result of the canine, and the convoluted problem in petting the canine, was *totally* put within the sport with the precise intention of trolling @CanYouPetTheDog into declaring you may not pet the canine.
And…he simply…he tweeted it out. https://t.co/Ib2OmTREGA

Cooper didn’t take the bait! Or perhaps he did? Either method, add one other sport to the checklist of titles the place, sure, it’s possible you’ll pet the canine.
Cooper is presently engaged with documenting which video video games have waterfalls the participant could peek behind. Marshall’s studio, Size Five Games, most just lately revealed Devil’s Kiss.
