Contest: Help Professor Lupo tame his horrible pets


They can’t be that bad…

We’ve got a contest giving away copies of Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets — come win one!

There’s nothing worse than a horrible pet. It’s like, it’s an animal and I love animals, but also they can really, really sometimes suck. I’ve had a few pets that were objectively horrible…but what can ya do? It’s not like they were murderous monsters found in the deep recesses of space or anything.

Well, today’s game has exactly that. We’ve got some Steam and Switch copies of Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets to give away. Come take one off our hands.

Professor Lupo travels the galaxy in his giant spaceship collecting different species of terrifying aliens. To bring them back to Earth for weaponization, of course. These people need to come up with better hobbies. Your job as his assistant is to act as bait to lure them into traps. Well, someone went ahead and attacked your ship on its return mission, and now the monsters are loose. Use your skills of baiting aliens into precarious situations to escape the ship, and maybe figure out just what the hell is going on.


  • Puzzle-adventure game strongly focused on the narrative!
  • Learn the aliens’ behavior: use them in your favor!
  • More than 100 levels and replayability: 12+ hours of gameplay!
  • Distinctive English voice-overs for each character!
  • A new hit from the creators of multi-award winning game Nihilumbra

Aliens, am I right?

To enter to win your copy, comment below telling us which platform you’d like, and just what makes a horrible pet. Is it their odor? Behavior? The fact that they keep trying to kill you? Some of these are worse than others, I guess.

We have five Switch NA and five Steam copies to give away. Winners will be drawn Friday, July 19. New users can sign up here to talk [pet]shop with us!

Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets is available now for PC and Nintendo Switch. Our sister sites, PC Invasion and Nintendo Enthusiast, also have some copies up for grabs — head there for more chances to win!
