Golden Record Retriever

Entrant 2024

Hoochoo Game Studios


is a rogue-lite deck-building game, equipped with adventurous tales of a golden retriever kidnapped by alien intruders after its owner's death who had launched a mass of "Golden Records" to outer space. Breaking the genre's tradition, the game provides a unique structure, where players will keep surviving in its ecosystem undying after every unit of adventures. Unlike its predecessors in the genre, which tend to adapt and rely on cards, adapts "dice" as its core component. In every journey, a player will be required to recruit colleagues. Each of the colleagues is symbolized by a die, and a die consists of unique faces depending on the colleague's unique pool of abilities. By collecting, upgrading, and assembling the analogue, wooden components, players will soon feel the thrill that comes from being a victim of luck and its controller at the same time.
