    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Well, I just received this from one of my alerts, and Portable Pixels - which is a London-based company has released Hatchi - which is a Tamagotchi-esque iPhone application.

    Here's my source: http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Multiformat/Hatchi/news.asp?c=36863

    Is this something you might try out? I can honestly say, it looks good.

    What do you guys think?

    Re: Portable Pixels releases Hatchi, a Tamagotchi-esque iPhone application

    My first impression was pretty positive looking at this thread. I looked it up on the app store and read some reviews, as well as the developer's description.

    Downloading it now, I'll post again or edit this post once I play with it a bit more and have an opinion on the game itself xD

    Edit: I love him already. lol. He's just a blobby baby right now.

    Pretty basic so far, but does have a good old-school pocket pet game feel. I played with him until he ran out of energy and now he's sleeping.

    Oh god, I want this so bad.. So so bad. I loved Tamagotchis ever since I was a kid, and this just brings back so much memories! Too bad I can't pay.. yet. Parents don't see any point of 'buying' games from my iTouch, unless I buy them myself. Hopefully I earn some cash from my OJT 4-5 months from now.

    Re: Portable Pixels releases Hatchi, a Tamagotchi-esque iPhone/Android application

    Maybe I'm missing something?

    I bought this around the time @cpvr first posted this thread. It costs $0.99 and I was willing to do that (my mom throws fits for purchases like this. The only other game I've ever bought was Robot Unicorn) because I was really excited for a Tamagatchi-like game that I could have with me at all times. So I got it.

    It really only takes about a minute or so to tend to its needs. Its energy goes down as you feed, play, clean, and read to it. Then you put it to sleep and start all over again in a few hours or so. I don't exactly see what's so fun about this one..? It doesn't really have a Tamagatchi feel to it, or at least a charm for me to want to visit and play with it when it wakes up. It seems to tire too easily and there's not really much you can interact with it. I also got the same creature as was posted with the preview pics, so that gives me the feeling there's no alternative evolutions...?

    I want to get my money's (or more like hassle's) worth from this game, and I do think it'd be neat to have another Tamagatchi (all of my old ones aged out; I had one from every version. New batteries don't even work on em)... so can anyone tell me if there's some extra thing or a tip or something to make it more enjoyable?

    I really miss Tamagotchis and have been trying to find one at a thrift shop recently. Ive been playing Kawaii Pet Megu on iPad witch is a lot like Hatchi but different graphics. I really love it! (and its free)

    Finally, another Hatchi gamer! I have Hatchi on my Android phone and I really like it. It's simple and very clean. No complex stuffs and just the wonderful feeling of raising your pet and the excitement to see it evolve. It just would be sad to let it go to the sanctuary.

    This looks really great!

    Unfotunately, my iPhone got water damaged when I left it out in the rain yesterday while playing Touch Rubgy, so I may have to wait a bit before getting this...

    I miss the old Tamagotchis!! They were really popular in my childhood...
