ShackStream: Indie-licious noodles about as connected doggo duos do in Phogs!

Phogs! is the lighthearted journey of two puppers connected by a stretchy belly woofing about in a colorful puzzle world, and we're playing it on Indie-licious.


It’s a curious life to live as a pair of puppers connected at the belly in a curiously quirky world. Such is the life of the phogs, but we’re going to be rolling, noodling, and yapping about as we make the best of it on today’s Indie-licious ShackStream!

Phogs! comes to us from the developers at Bit Loom Games and the publishers at Coatsink. It’s available now on PC via Steam, as well as Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. In this curiously quirky game, you play as the titular phogs, Red and Blue: a pair of happy-go-lucky doggos connected at the belly for better or worse. Whether solo or by co-op with a friend, you control Red and Blue separately to wander around worlds unraveling puzzles themed to sleeping, eating, and playing - all the things a phog loves the most!

Join us today on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET as we play Phogs! on Indie-licious, where we check out the latest and most interesting indie games every Monday afternoon. You can also watch the stream just above.
