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.

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 

(+5)

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.

Found about this game from ManlyBadassHero, watched 2 mins of the video and i just had to get it for myself.

I loved it. Are there any plans to expand on the story?

Thanks for playing!

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.

sorry for my lvl of einglish, have a good day :3

(+1)

Thank you, I hope you have a good day too!

(1 edit)

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)

well i dont know if you wanted to make more a game of terror or a unique experience, if you could tell me i can give you more in depth my opinion in how i think the game can better in my opinion.

Sick game homie. I love meta analysis of players in relation to the medium. I went ahead and grabbed Schastye just because I liked this one.

Cheers and keep up the good work!

also plz give smol green girl happy ending

(+1)

Big thanks for the support, my dude ;)

is there a 32 bit version for this game? 

Sorry, not yet! Will add soon

(1 edit) (+2)

You know, when you said this was a horror game I didn't believe you. I was wrong.

This game is deeply, deeply unsettling. I like it. I don't regret buying it. But I'm just going to put it down for a while. Possibly forever.

I just don't have the strength to keep looking for more endings.

(+2)

It's alright. I am very glad it was impactful

I thought T-Gotchi looked like a lot of fun, but I never imagined how special this game really is. It’s one of my favorite games of the year, primarily because of how well-made it is, and how there’s no hand-holding. T-Gotchi encourages you to experiment and discover. I wish more games out there had the desire to be so unique. I know it looks simple on the surface, but it’s greatest rewards await players who choose to think outside the box. 

I’ve provided a video if players get stuck, as I was able to grab all the game’s endings, but I encourage you to experience it for yourself; you’ll have a lot of fun. Highly recommended! 

(+5)

I beg of you, please make a good ending. I tried so much to get the good ending, and it kept just bringing me back to the one where you're nice to her

(+1)

good game i very much like

(+1)

Absolutely loved this entire experience from start to end. I love my T-Gotchi!!

(+1)

Glad you liked it ;)

(+1)

I genuinely got scared when I got to The Day. Awesome game!!

(+1)

i was playing the game (love it) when suddenly my pc went off, when i turned it on again and opened the game it crashes everytime i try to prees any key to start and i don't know what to do :c

Hi, try to reinstall the game, and then delete the saves (an option in the starting menu)

yep, i made that but it doesen't start when i press anything to play, any other suggestions?

Do you have a 32-bit system? 

no, its 64

Then I am not sure what it is :< 

If it doesn't start working, please just refund, sorry.

(+1)

Makes me wonder where my old tamagotchi is now... oh god, the poor thing probably drowned in it's own filth years ago!

PS, great game, good job!

No prob, thanks for helping me out btw ;)

(+3)

I love it, gotta say it's games like these that give me hope for super advanced AI futures. people get worried that super advanced AI wouldn't be given rights, and I'm sitting here playing this game and feeling horrible about this fake tomagachi girl that I literally have no choices or options to help but still feel bad about.

Very interesting game.

Good job, Garage Heathen.

(+1)

I really did try my best to please and raise this Anime girl. Then she starts to die for no reason and every choice I make leads to tragety! Then I figured it out... THIS IS THE GOAL OF THE GAME! Finally got ALL ENDINGS after 2 hours of trying. There is a "Good Ending". Awesome game, can't wait for more!

(+1)

Heheh, thank you so much for playing! ;)

any idea when we can expect this game to be released on steam?

I am working on that rn actually. I'd say round October if all goes well.

(+2)

Without spoiling it, the way the game twisted my emotions so easily over what felt like minor things on my part was great. Left me with a lot to contemplate over.

(+2)

Ok I have to say this game is very well made. I love the idea of it and the graphics are great too. I hope to see an expansion on this as I love the concept you have made here 

(+4)

does it have endless day? if so, it would great to have add it

(+12)(-9)

the only thing i "kinkshame" is having a sexual fantasy of complete power over someone, which is basically rape. even if it isnt real, that kind of mindset is dangerous and disgusting, and i stand by what i said. i dont have any priviledge, i know what its like to have no power and be used as a pet, and this game shows how scary that can be. but if someone is sick enough to get off to this stuff, they are dangerous and should see a therapist or something.

Friends, take this discussion somewhere else please ;) 

(1 edit) (-6)

that doesn't even make sense? i'm literally a pansexual nonbinary person of color lmao. i don't believe im causing any harm, i just don't want more people to use others, i may have been a bit harsh about it though. oh well, i hope you have a good day at least

(+2)

I can't tell which one of you is trolling but you both find a way to be more wrong with every message

BOY

Pretty cool but I wish it had been a straight-up porn game. That way I wouldn't have spent so much time modding out the shower curtain.

(+8)

o_o

(+3)

This implies that there is a nude mod for this game out there...

(+11)(-1)

Not exactly, I used a third party app to access the games assets and then deleted the mesh circle03(the shower curtain).

(+3)

what app?

(+3)

AssetBundleExtractor

(+3)(-1)

You're doing gods work

(1 edit)

is there any else can be mod?

(-1)

BOY

(+1)

Remminds me of my childhood, except the cute gf part, LOL

(+2)

I only did the one ending, so that other will take a chance and check out the full game, cool concept though
