What is it? Two phogs, one pup.

Would you classify this game’s protagonists as ‘cute’, or ‘a horrific monstrosity that defiles the very concept of nature’? I think I’ll go with ‘both’. It’s still fashionable to put in a claim of cognitive dissonance, after all. I’m not ashamed to say (perhaps I should be) that, when I first saw this double-headed… thing, the question that immediately sprang to mind for me was “how does it poo?”. This is not, sadly, something that the game ever addresses.
