Glory Hounds is a superhero comedy furry visual novel by Echo Project.
Alex de Rooij, your regular everyday dalmatian working a dead end job, has his boring life suddenly upended when he discovers his boss's secret identity as the masked vigilante known as the Dawn Hound. Thrust into a new position as his sidekick, he soon finds it comes with some rather unusual workplace hazards - from invisible fashionistas to fish mobsters from the depths of the local canals. As threats continue to mount, Alex will have to step up to the plate to fight for the fate of his hometown - as well as decide his own.
Unusually for a visual novel, Glory Hounds is episodic, meaning each update will be fully standalone.
