  1. Glad to see our icon Doggo getting the attention he deserves, love these monthly updates!

  2. Awesome! I love the devstalks, I’ve been eagerly awaiting this one.

    I’m very glad to hear they are considering orphanages and children’s shelters. But even if they don’t make it in, I still really hope to see a realistic adoption system in this game. I’m very excited that sports are confirmed for the base game, and that they’re thinking about beaches too.

    1. I’m happy you enjoy them! I aim to post one on the last day of each month. 🙂
