FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)



  • Is the game free?
Yes! Space Paws is a project for everybody. But as many projects, we have Patreon to receive needed support for all the time that is requiered to develop a video game.



  • When will Space Paws be finished?
Making a promise is the first step to breaking it. We have in mind to finish the game at some point of 2018, most likely second half. The version of the last update indicates approximately the state of development of the game. Example: v.0.49 = 49% of development



  • How many of you are working on the project?
We're only two. We're a couple, in fact. We work very well together, for that reasons there're no plans to add any members in a short future.



  • I downloaded the game but I can't play it. What am I doing wrong?
Follow these instructions:


-First of all, the file you downloaded is a .rar, that means it's compressed. You can use some freeware software like 7z or Peazip to extract the content. If you're using MAC, we recommend using a freeware named UnrarX or Winzip for mac to extract the content. You have to extract everything, so the main game file and a folder called "files" should be in the same directory. It should look this way:




-After extracting everything, if you don't have it, install a standalone Flash Player. (The one installed on your browser could not work).You can find this software at the official Adobe Flash Player website:


For Windows:

For MAC:

  • The game works fine, but I'm not able to see any H-scene. What do I have to do?
If you downloaded the game make sure that the executable file (for example: Space Paws 0.49.1.swf) and the folder "files" are in the same directory (as in the image above). Otherwhise the game won't be able to load the content of this needed folder. 

If you are playing online, make sure to be using a browser like Chrome or Opera. We've found out that Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge security settings don't allow you to load the external files. That's not something we can fix or do anything about, it's just how those browsers are built.


  • Will Space Paws be available for mobile devices (Android, iPhone)?
No. Adapting everything for other devices would take quite long. We prefer starting other projects instead. Sorry :(


  • Why does the game need to load external files?
Currently, the game size is around 120mb and has more than 1k files in it. So it's easier for flash to load external content that once you've seen it it's "killed", letting more free RAM on your computer and making a better gameplay experience :)


  • Why are you redoing some art, animations...?
Because during the development of the game we improved, and those improvements are really noticeable. We want Space Paws to look homogeneous and with a high quality. There're different styles of animations and coloring righ now, so all the outdated stuff will end up looking the same as the new content.


  • Is Space Paws your first project?
It is!
  • Is there life after Space Paws?
Future is uncertain. But it's very likely. In fact, we already have several ideas about other projects that we'd like to make real.
