(Co-Creator Guy)   12 years ago my mom refused to buy me a Tamagotchi. I have now spent years of my life and my savings on making a pet app for iPhone. Thoughts?   (hatchpet.com) divider line 23

Tamagochis suck. Little bastards would eat their own shiat and traumatize you when they died.

Wait did they really eat their own poop? I swear every single member of the team individually asked me why they couldn't feed their pet poo and it was really weirding me out, but now I understand.

I know just enough about these apps to be impressed with your cleverness subby.

I dunno what they did. But whatever it was, they were 120% dumber than norns from creatures

I had a GigaPet rancor.  When my school banned them I sent it to work with my mother.  When she brought it home after one day it was nearly dead.  It never regained its full health and just seemed traumatized by the incident.  It died shortly there after.

You, sir, should consider yourself lucky that because of the actions of your mother, you were saved from the horrors of the Great Tamagotchi Holocaust.
 
In the 90s, there were tens of millions of Tamagotchis sold.  Yet, one by one, they were all abandoned as their owners got tired of them.  Left on their own, with no owner to feed them, clean their poop or play with them, they all began to slowly starved to death mired helplessly in their own filth, completely and utterly alone and unloved.
 
Sometimes, on lonely nights, you can sometimes hear the faint echoes of their beeping in their pitiful last hours.   Feed Us, Feed Us...., the mournful wind seems to cry.....

Any plans for making it Android compatible or can we play on the desktop via the website?

I was ready to come in with a "you wasted 2 years of your life," but you win.

Just think, eventually, there will be so many episodes of The Simpsons in syndication (and syndication packages lean towards newer episodes) that kids may not ever see that one. And then the joke will be lost forever...

My iPad didn't want to play nice with the video, so I cheated and Googled a bit until I found an article about said app where the video would play. It looks a heck of a lot cuter than my Tamagotchi ever did. 
 
Full credit for giving out exclusives for an e-mail address. Normally, I'd be disinclined to pop my address into something designed to alert me to a product being released. Especially something that doesn't say whether or not the product is chock full of micro transaction stuff. Apparently, getting to pick a cute colored blob with an exclusive color scheme is enough to shut my inner cynic up. Kind of embarrassing for me, but hey.

You're an idiot. Probably soon to be very wealthy, but still.

Hey loveblondieo, unfortunately no current plans for Android or other platforms for the moment. Got our hands full getting this ready for iPhone, and it feels like we designed the creature to suit iOS's personality. Would love to explore other platforms someday though :)

I know a couple kids that would LOVE this!

One guy with no life + a billion dollars = A filthy rich guy with no life

A life. You can't buy one, Subbs.

So you put the thing in a cage?

If this works on iPad I dare not get it. I can barely wrestle my iPad away from my 5-y-o as it is.
(But I really want one cause it looks stinkin' adorable)

I LOVE it! Wow, I am really excited for you. I wish you all the best of success -- this is definitely a "feel good" app that many people are going to simply enjoy.
