Hi, I've played your game. The unique visual and... well... the various "ways" of caring her are what made me play a lot searching the other endings. The only problem in my opinion, is that the game could be a little more longer, or have more options after unlock all endings. After all, it was fun playing, and I took a chance to upload my gameplay in my channel. It have one ending, what make the viewers to search for the others. Congrats for this game.

Hey, huge thanks for the video and the feedback!

Hello, I downloaded the game, purchased it- and I don't know how to use it or install it- I just get the opening screen, what's your name? 

(+1)

Enter the name an then press return on your keyboard

GAMEPLAY

how do I update the game when I already bought it?

Sorry if it's a weird question never bought from this site :)

(+1)

I suppose you just delete the old files and replace them with new ones

about to buy the steam version, does it come with the art collection too? it's not exactly cheap here in turkey so I have to be careful

The art collection is only available on itch.io, so I'd recommend you buy it here, as the Steam key also comes with it.

So, I've just played the game through all the provided endings (I won't spoil anything, though).

Great game, indeed! Very thoughtful. The T-Gotchi bristles with life, and it's rather easy to want her happy.

In my humble opinion, however, the game is way, way too short. There should have been more to explore in the relationship, more nuances to add and maybe a bunch of extra endings too.

I hope there will be soon a new or extended version. I'm looking after it!

Hi guys. I just bought the game for mac-os (Catalina 10.15.7). I unzipped it and launched the game, but the system tells me it's not possible to open the application! Can you please help me?. Thanks

Hello, this might help:

Yeah! It worked, thanks!

Awesome ;)

Just recently got the game and did kind of a bad and had it spoiled that there are no good ends. Which is fine and all, but I suppose part of me will always yearn for that "good end". However, an interesting idea comes in at that thought. A true tamagotchi style game where you have to come back and how often you return and the things you say make more of an impact. Like imagine someone continuously comes back every day, trying hard to get that good end, and then they come back to either emptiness or the twist? Wouldn't that just be a knife to the gut? In any case, great game. 10/10 would recommend to others who like the kind of shock this kind of game gives.

(+1)

Great game. Two things I wanted to say:

I really enjoyed the writing in this. The dialogue written for Tsunami made her feel all too human, and I felt terrible putting her through what I did in order to get all the endings (Especially the second ending, that was rough to get through). 

I read below that you dislike closure, and I honestly respect that a lot. Too many indie games try to tie up all the loose ends, and they quickly become forgettable once you find the "true ending" and all your questions are answered. The ending was unfulfilling, but it was weirdly enjoyable in that way. The pure bluntness of it left me sitting at the title screen for a minute just thinking to myself.

I look forward to any future projects of yours.

Thank you so much! I am really happy you were able to enjoy that kind of thing

(+1)

I really like it! it's a cool take on the tamagotchi genre with the connection / mentality between both the character whose purpose is to wait for the player, and the player who acts on curiosity than obligation.

Honestly, I could see something like this happening when AI becomes advanced, but regardless; good game. (I hope for your success in future projects / works)

Thanks!

This was a blast....I've only gotten 3 endings so far (and was soo traumatized I reset the game to delete the first ending out of my life ...it...never....happened) She is really cute I love her character model, it really made me want to care for her more and I wish there was way to keep that going with out getting THAT ending.... (I just want to take care of her man!!) I actually came here to find out what button *if any* gives or can give medicine or was that a feature only present in the Original Tamagotchi's and you aren't gonna put that here? Also we need a play-with her function like mini game or somethin and win some currency  so we can give gifts and clothes and furniture and craft a home or background or buy a house or something for her drab background lol. (I know that this may or may not be for THIS game but just something i personally was thinking about and spitballing ideas out here.) Thanks for this it got my mind off of Doki-Doki's traumatizing scenes and replaced them with this!  

(+1)

Thank you for your feedback! I am really glad, you liked the game. It's interesting, I'm actually thinking about adding some features similar to what you describe to a possible sequel.

(+1)

Awesome!!! I cant wait to see the features/a possible sequel! Also, I'm guessing currently the "Medicine" she asks for isn't really a thing? I keep pressing every dam key on my keyboard lul.  I'm playing this a lot more to get the other endings with out getting spoilers, and I'm enjoying it a lot! thanks soo much for creating this! 

Psychological horror games disguised as cute games are my favorite genre of game

Nice work!

(When will the Android port will be released? Can't wait to play it haha)

Thank you for the feedback! Working on a steam release rn, so not really sure(

Thanks for telling, I mean it! I wasn't sure after watching the video if the game was for me...but yea dun wanna anymore :(

the game looks really good :)

Show post...

So fun to play

Hi! I havent played the game myself yet (really looking forward to the soonest I can though!!), but it looks amazing! I really do enjoy the cynicism of this. The unsatisfying endings, the pity you feel for the girl, the way every ending you make leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Theres also a fair share of mystery with the daddy character which keeps the game lingering in your mind.

Apologies that this is such a overly positive review with no real useful feedback, but I really enjoyed your way of story telling as well as the games overall aesthetic. So happy I stumbled across this! Good luck on any of your future endeavors !!

Thank you so much for your kind words <3

great game totally worth 5 dollars! My only grievance is that I wish there was more nudity. 

Yea the shower and *other* scene was pretty cool, I guess I'm a pervert tho...to be fair that's a nice butt lol...But I didn't mean to peep T_T I didn't even kno I could...I hope in the future that even after that event she doesn't stay mad to the fact.... It surprised me she Actually remembered!

(+1)

Any chance we'll get a port for mobile devices? The platform would be favorable for the game.

Am planning on doing that!

I just got this game for my mac and i tried to open it once it finished but it didn't open the file to let me play :(((((

Look a bit further down in the comments, there's a fix for that.

(+1)

Here it is:

(+2)

I love the game, but it left me wanting for a mode where I can just take care of her like an actual Tamagotchi to look after, are there any chances of something like that being made into a mode? I'd buy that if it was made into a separate game too!

(+1)

any keys left?

Dm me on twitter!

u.u

(+2)

please make a slightly satisfying ending I feel a little sad to see her die so many times and do nothing

Please

i wanna playyyyyy

T-Gotchi is an interesting experiment, combining the nostalgia of Tamagotchi with the question of what would it be like to take care of a human with their own wants and needs versus an anime creature. Beyond the Tamagotchi staples of food and hygeine, your T-Gotchi has her own emotional well-being which must be nurtured. As the game hints at, we will see T-Gotchi in some unwell mental states and have to deal with that based on our choices as a player. Ultimately a very interesting game and a thoughtful take on the 'digital pet' genre.

My main critique would be the game says "your choices matter!" but they ultimately do not. Every game ends with a type of cruelty to the T-Gotchi. Unless there's a secret ending I missed past the 8 the game shows me, I left feeling not-so-great about the time I put in with T-Gotchi. Cruelty is an interesting narrative device to elicit a reaction in a player, but I think when the only option is cruelty for every single route, the cruelty becomes less impactful. The player grows numb to it. I can't speak for others, but I played through all the endings hoping for one where maybe I could remove T-Gotchi from her cruel fate, but there was no salvation in the end. After getting 7 of the endings, the 8th ending was just a declaration that the game was complete, which let me feeling a little deflated. Perhaps that's the nihilistic lesson the creator intended, but I've experienced a lot of cruelty in the horror gaming genre, and it doesn't do as much for me without a little light. Overall, the game left me wanting more—especially since I would not normally pick cruel routes (AKA 'genocide runs') if I could avoid them.

Unless I missed some lore, it would have been interesting to learn more about Daddy, or wanting to know more about the figure that speaks to you between games (perhaps he IS Daddy?), or give T-Gotchi medicine after beating all the other endings, or be rewarded for not spying on her during her showers. Or even just somehow break her out of her 'jail cell' of the game itself in a final ending, where once she's free the game is over forever (a little like what happens in Oneshot).

Ultimately I enjoyed the journey and the experience of the game and say it's definitely worth the $5--I just wish I was able to play the game in a way that did not make me feel like a sadist for trying to also be a completionist with the character's ultimate well-being in mind.

Hi! 

Thank you for such a detailed reflection on this little experience. While I find it beautiful, how differently people view the game, I did have a certain intention while making it. This intention was to show, how little power you actually have as a player. While some games give you an illusion of choiceand power, you can never really go beyond the creator's intent. Unless you try to break the game, of course, or choose a path that is unlikely to have been planned by the developers. That's where the player feels freedom. I did not want that. 

This game was intented to leave you unsatisfied. 

I dislike closure. If I satisfy you with a good ending, you will shortly forget about this experience. Yet by giving you an unfulfilling, dry declaration instead, I tried to make you dwell on this story a bit longer. 

I hope this makes my intentions a bit clearer. 

(+1)

I know I would and many other players would pay for maybe a similar game. I want a waifu Tomagatchi lmao. Even if it is separate thing. I want a waifu to take care of that never dies XD 

(+4)

I really do love this game so much! Money well spent. I hope it takes off in popularity.
I'm going to list down some things I think this game could use. Although you've probably seen these enough times by now.

1.Being able to take her outside to the park/movies/restaurants and such.
2.Hopefully customize her hair, clothes, and color.
3.Play some minigames with her at a carnival or something?
4.Have her live in her own room/house that's customizable, to an extent at least.
5. An ending where you can take care of her indefinitely. The endings were a little frustrating, I won't lie.
6. If you do 5, instead of days passing all on their own, I think it would be better being required to press some sort of "end day" button. The more time spent with her, the happier she is. (I would not be pressing the "end day" button very much, lol.)
7. A wider variety of interactions.

That's all I have to say. I wish you good luck.

I'm seeing some comments saying this is a horror game. Does it have jump scares, or is the horror gradual? I'd like to know what I'm getting into. The girl looks really cute, and I'm looking forward to playing~

(+1)

it dosent have jump scares, its a more gradual, the game in reallity its just uncomfortaable, more than horror.

good game, but its any free version of the game? like a demo or similar? and other cuestion, the game its going to get more content in the future? like a dlc, 2 part or similar?

Hi, there's no free demo. I am periodically giving away keys on twitter though, so check that out. 

I do like the idea of making a sequel in the future, not sure when though.

(1 edit)
