Like Myst - but more player-friendly

This short little adventure game is well worth playing. If you have 20-30 minutes, jump into this adventure story with gorgeous graphics and lovely narration. The casual puzzles are easy enough for middle school kids yet engaging for adults who want a break from the hurried pace of other games. And those who remember point and click games from the 90s such as Myst will be pleased to see this modern take on the genre. (And the puzzles won’t make you pull out your hair!)

The soundscape it provides is relaxing, and the puzzles are satisfying to solve. It’s the perfect game to play on a tablet. Highly recommend!

So fun and funny, absolutely loved it

Game is very sweet and very short and I liked that about it. The ad says it’s bite sized and sometimes that’s all I want. The music and artwork are beautiful and create a lovely environment for wandering around solving simple puzzles. It’s the kind of game that I would play again when feeling blue because it’s such a nice little world to be in. I hope we get more Lost Dachshund soon. I would definitely pay for a game like this if it were a little longer.

Wonderfully Adorable

Never played this type of game before, finally had to go online and found a video made by a 10 year old who explained how the game works. Once I got the hang of it, I was able to find Peanut. 🥜
