nice work =)
A downloadable game for Windows
This game was made in 15 days for:
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE LATEST VERSION, AS THESE WILL HAVE BUG FIXES.
IF YOU WANT TO SKIP THE INTRO USE THE ESCAPE MENU WHILE IN-GAME.
You and your fellow animal control officer, Kevin, have been called out to check on Mike's farmstead, who suspects that coyotes are causing problems. It's up to you to go and do some investigating to see what's really going on.
Animal control is a narrative driven, short horror game with the theme of 'transformation.'
Mrkravin is one of our favorite let's players here at Periltek, so be sure to check his content out!
The save system is level based (if you die on a level, you have to restart the whole level.) Other than that, there is no 'save-system', but the game shouldn't take very long to play.
Also, this is my first time with creating true AI for the monsters, so excuse the jank.
There are still some bugs, but nothing game-breaking. I think I'm going to leave them in for comedy value. The bugs are now features!
The locations were inspired by rural Kentucky, and we did our best to capture the ambience and atmosphere associated with it. Before you ask, yes it gets THAT dark, and yes the crickets are very loud.

hi, big thx for the cool game. greetings from rosti 🙏😀
Nice idea for the game
Tried out 'Animal Control'!
Definately an odd experience lol,loved it tho
Whoooo.... this game was a weird ride man. I liked the tension that built up to the events and as well as a natural feel about the voice actors atleast imo. Liked certain scenes like the cows eating their own kind which makes your alarm ring you to exit lol. Scares wise i felt it could have made use of more jumpscares because eventually you get used to the animal sounds in the game. I am aware its still in development so ignore if this is fixed, but i feel the end was abrupt as well as felt an extra creature causing the events could have been used. Again its just a suggestion when it comes to the latter. That apart i felt the game was worth my time and i enjoyed it!Thanks for the game devs and keep creating more!
Thanks for playing. Sorry about the ending and needs for extra stuff. It was created for a game jam and had to be completed in 15 days or less. We had so much more planned but at the end of the day, we just had to pick a stopping point and meet the deadline. We are not currently focusing on this game primarily yet as we have two other major titles we plan on finishing up, as well as a possible collaboration project to get to first. Great playthroughs. Feel free to check out our page for other games and 2 new releases coming soon.
MAKE MORE GAMES PLS :)
Lol. We will. We are working on two atm. She's working on a full version of 'Adaptation' and I'm working on another which is a pbr based game. Thanks for playing
Had fun with this game. A couple aggravating moments mostly trying to find the key lol but over all I enjoyed it!
Very nice, especially for being done in fifteen days! How long did it take to do that intro part of it? Thanks for sharing it with us, bro?
All together I think it took a couple days. Most of the time was spent level building. The actual gameplay was added in on the last 2 days I think, which is why it was so buggy if you played an early version.
it was a pretty good game loved the story got a few spooks from it 9/10
thanks for playing! I don't have a lot of experience with saving systems, so I apologize for that. Me and my husband did the voice acting. It was our first time doing something like that and we were testing the waters with it.
Knowing it was made for a gamejam as I say the following, it does feel a bit unpolished. I ran into a glitch where it told me I had applied the bait even though I hadn't even made it yet, my character kept walking during the cutscene on the mill, and the monsters attacking are just kind of... the same sort of stiff animation. I am sure you are aware of these, and that with mroe time they would have been worked on, however.
And what we have is still rather fun, so kudos to you, I quite enjoyed myself on this one.
Thanks for playing! I kinda threw the story together last minute because building the level took a lot longer than I thought it would. I had originally wanted the game to take place entirely inside the vehicle, but I ran into a lot of issues. I'm halfway thinking about changing the genre to horror-comedy with all the bugs lol.
Unique game, but a bug made me get stuck, its fine, 6/10 game
I uh...I was not expecting that for a monster! Great build up, atmosphere, and scares! Also I love the secret room! Great game!
I had played the previous version but couldn't finish it due to the bugs there were. Now, with this current version, I could finish and now I say: this game has a lot of potential for something more expanded both in plot and in the atmosphere of mystery and horror.
Congratulations on your work.
thanks for playing! great video! The monsters seem to get the dumber the longer you play too!
Awesome submission my dude! Hope you place well!
lol yeah that AI was a bit weird, but it's all good.
Had a bit of confusion with the bait, but once I figured it out everything was fine. I agree with a way to skip the intro, and I ran into a deer that trapped me in a barrel, but overall it was a fun and tense game.
Hey that was pretty fun, dude. I like what you did with it. I also found that weird hidden room haha. There were some good surprises along the way. Thanks!
great playthrough, thanks for playing. This was my first time with the monster AI so, sorry it was a bit janky.
Gotta admit this game was pretty good.
How to save?
Amazing game and creepy good atmosphere
Cool-creepy secret! Call 555-MRKRAVIN now!
thanks for letting me know. I was so sleep deprived that I honestly didn't think about these things.
I just thought I'd let you know I fixed several of these issues. The inventory interactions was pretty much the only way I knew how to do that particular sequence. I'm still learning, and in future games I hope to figure out a better way.
This Is A very Good Game Actually Took i loved playing it. And Atmoshphere was really Awesome. Great Work.
