A downloadable thing for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Adventures in the Mudkip's Dating Simulator Universe continue in Mudkip Goes to Walmart then Dies! Return to the world of MDS set after the events of MDS1+2, the previous game. On September 13th, 2018, Mudkip is given a special task from Protagonist, and must carry it out with efficiency. How will Mudkip meet his demise? To whom will it be credited? Find out now!


  • Both English and Japanese language options! The game was originally created in English, but it has been hand translated to Japanese.
  • Extra endings, a more non-linear style of play, and extra plot unlock after you complete the first play-through! (You must play the game a second time to see a lot of the content! Don't miss out! The control key skips already seen lines!)
  • 30-45 whole minutes of gameplay in total!
  • Completed endings list, with 3 endings.
  • Admittedly rough RPG battles, most of which can be skipped on replay.
  • A terrifying combination -- inspired by Undertale, Earthbound, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, and various other things. Mostly Undertale, though.
  • Randomized events and dialogue... Each time you play something might subtly change!
  • Two separate gay couples on the True Ending route.
  • A nameable Protagonist if you enable it in the options
  • Absolutely 0 (zero) references to COVID-19 as this predates it by a whole year.

But wait! There's more! If you download within the next [forever] decades, you can get it completely for free! Don't hesitate, download Mudkip Goes to Walmart then Dies as soon as possible!

I am open to feedback, so be sure to leave it if you have any thoughts. I also take anonymous questions on the MDS Tumblr. Or, you can discuss on the somehow still active MDS Discord.

Also check out the spinoff sequel, MDS Comedy Hour!

Alright, only got true end, but dunno if I should continue 

I'm quite the scared type... And not sure if I'd be safe

But... since this is mostly a jokey game (well aka not taking itself too seriously) there might be nothing and I'm scared for nothing but, if you the dev, can guarantee me.... no... jumpscares?

(Like when you call for help... what would happen if you didn't talked to... the unknown?)

Only thing jumpscare-y is the game forcing fullscreen in the segment you mentioned.


THIS WAS AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE........ I hope to make a visual novel that is half as great as this masterpiece is...... thank you for all your work!!!

Wow! I'm glad you enjoyed it!


somehow this was the game that introduced me to itch


i'm very sorry


i WAS SH O O K when Stevens ringtone went off 

I was like is my phone ringing

Then remembered this is a new phone without my old ringtones on it yet 

I leaned in close to make sure and was AbsoShook 

Wonderful Easter eggs

sorry if you've answered this on other social medias, but a bit lower in the comments there's a dead link for a demo for another game and i was wondering whatever happend to it

It was cancelled so I felt that it was mean to dangle an unfinished demo in front of everyone forever.

can you give any hints on unlocking 'utena' ?

Get all the {DUHHH NUHHHH} sound effect options. There are 3.




im confused in order to get the true ending do i have to go full doki doki and delete emma? i cant find her in the files so i dont know.

send help ive been playing this game for nearly an hour please send help 


I like how my first thought is to try to delete emma instead of just starting a new save file 

update:i am still missing something

send help

i am going to delete emma again if help does not arrive

Talk to Mystri, and do the sidequest with Eggy. Although I probably should have done your idea instead lol.


Funny Game. i loved it. the battles were repetitive but i feel like thats the point they're still fun and i like mudkip a lot lol

(5 edits)

Yeah, the battles are the thing I'm trying to fix the most in the sequel. There's still a bit more to see if you replay this one, though! There is a "true" ending you didn't get, and more places to see. (Both of these only become available after your first run.) If you're interested in playing a demo of the sequel afterward, here's a link. I'm so glad you enjoyed my dumb meme vn!

late reply. i did record the true ending but my mic broke in the video so i didnt post the last half but i am gonna check out the next project

Super unfortunate! There still isn't a video of the true ending online, R.I.P.

If you want part 1/5 of the cancelled sequel, DM me on Twitter or Tumblr.


I thought the game would be just boring or something but I actually enjoyed it?? Seriously though, defenitly playing the sequel


wait I think this is the sequel. ;v;

(1 edit)

It is getting an actual sequel, though! The demo of which is actually probably going to go live today! :)

Edit: Here it is! https://coolermudkip.itch.io/mudkip-and-co-save-the-entire-universe

lemme guess, random words are spelled wrong, and that's funny, it'll make me XD for sure


Yep! That's about right! :)

Zip: We’re only rp’ying for the three of us, Zap. I’m pretty sure Mudkip can’t hear us.

Zap: But-but, it’s 100 dollars! That’s like… 1… 2… 7… AT LEAST 100 DOLLARS!!! That’s more dollars than I can count with my fingers!!

Zoopy: Hey, since when did Zap downgrade his language module and become obsessed with money?

Zip: Our god didn’t give us enough screen time to solidify our personalities, so we can basically do whatever we want.

Zap: What about adding a donate button?

Zip: The only thing I’d donate for is the overthrow of-

??????: Someone call me?

Protagonist: Whoops, I can’t have you giving unwarranted spoilers. Especially if they don’t actually give any real implications. Time to shut this operation down.

Zap: Come on, Zip! We can split the 100 dollars between the three of us!

Zip: Zap, I think we have a bigger problem to deal with than your incorrect math…

Protagonist: Shutting down in 3…

Zip: At least we each get one last line to speak in, even though I just wasted mine.

Protagonist: 2…

Zoopy: Just one short sentence and otherwise ignored… again. sigh

Protagonist: 1…

Zap: NOO!! MY 100 DOLLARS!!!

Windows 9 has crashed. Next time consider not waving magnets around in the electronics section.

Ive Changed My Mind After 3 Months Of Thinking


Your games are amazing and hilarious! Keep it up!


Awww, thank you!


I should have heeded the warning on your author page… What have you done to me (seriously though I enjoyed every second of this game, I had a really HECKIN’ good time!).

So I was wondering if this game could also feature an endings guide like the last game “Mudkip and the terrible plot device.” Maybe a few easter eggs maybe? I mostly just want to take in all of that VN goodness (ok maybe I had too much of a good time…)

Also I’m playing on a mac and when I was fighting some sliced watermelons Mudkip… accidentally died. The game would continue until the screen that says “And thus, Mudkip died.” and then suddenly glitch out to a few screens back. I’m not sure if this is a glitch or not, but if it isn’t the change is really abrupt and it’s kinda hard to tell that it was on purpose. Also I’m pretty sure that no one would die to the fruits anyway unless they actively tried to, WHICH I DEFINITELY DID NOT!

Anyway love your games and cannot wait for more!

P.S: Please don’t abandon us for the new animal crossing switch…


Zip: Did he just say what I think he said?

Zoopy: I think he just heckin’ sweared!

Zap: Kids like you should be burning in heck!

Archer got sent to heck for being a little darn


Can you please send me to heck, too?


Zap: Why’d they think it was a good idea to respond to a comment that’s literally 28 days old?

Zip: Don’t be rude Zap! I’d be more than happy to add another soul to my list…

Zap: Hey! I’m the one telling on the line jokes here!

Zoopy: Uh, guys? We still have a guest to attend t-

Zip: Your necklace is literally made of acrylic Zap, I bet Zoopy’s hat cost more than that!

Zoopy: Hey this hat wa-

Zap: *Gasp* You take that back!

Zip: Make me!

Indistinct fighting

Zoopy: *Sigh* I guess I’ll go ask Joey if I can use the console to send you to heck, just give me a second.

Incinerawr got sent to heck for, I dunno they probably wanted to see Azumarill or something…


what on earth is going on.


By Playing This Game, You Have Sent Me To Heaven

Thanks for your kind words! I am going to patch the game in the future to fix a few of the problems, as well as add an endings guide. I probably should have done it in the first place, but oh well. The reason it was originally omitted was because there are really only ~3 endings, but I do agree it could still be useful. (Maybe a chance to add a new ending or 2, eh?) And most of the Easter Eggs are in the form of random events this time around. Each time you play a lot of the dialogue is mixed up. 

About the death screen, it's part of an ongoing bug that I'm having trouble fixing, where the mac version doesn't properly restore renpy checkpoints. I don't have a mac to test the game on in real time, so it's very hard to fix. On the previous version, the game would crash every time you even entered a battle, so it's a bit of an improvement at least. I'll try some more to fix it. :P

Thanks again for your comment, and I am happy to announce that I'm working on the next game as we speak. I have pretty big plans for it, so it might take a while.

(P.S. I swear that Magnets account isn't me, but I love them, whoever they are.)

oh dang. I was unaware of that mac crash with the autosaving. (It's why it throws an error at the start of every battle) I'll see if I can fix that for the next patch. I didn't know anyone who had a Mac so I couldn't test it lol.

Thanks for the video!

EDIT: Alright, I'm pushing the patch now. Hopefully this fixes the crashes! Should be ready for download within 15 minutes.
