Hey guys! I'm Willem, one of the two guys working on Pakka Pets. I just recently came across this thread and am SUPER happy to hear that you guys are excited about our game!!! I'm defiantly a huge Tamagotchi & Animal Crossing fan. Shades of both games as well as games like Pokemon will be visible in Pakka Pets when we launch. We are doing our best to reference and be inspired by these games without ripping anything off. :)
 
We're hoping to get the game out sometime between Nov 2014 and Feb 2015 (sorry its so long, but its only us two working on it!) If you guys have any questions about it, I'd love to answer em', although I might be a little slow responding since we're super busy.
 
Rock on n' keep raising beautiful Tamagotchis!  :wub:


ooooh! can't wait!
one question though: will in-game currency cost alot? (like the special kind of currency that you need to pay real money for)

So happy your excited!

 

There will be only one in-game currency, this means that there won't be a purchase-only currency. Any money, or in our case Hearts, that you earn from your pet can be used to buy any in-game decorations items, or even new eggs to hatch Pakkas from. You will be able to purchase currency for real $, but we haven't started tuning it yet. My goal is to tune it to be fun without purchases first, and once I'm happy with that balance, to make purchases feel like an icing on the cake for those who want it.

Hey, um, how did you come up with the name "Pakka Pets"? Did it just come to you when you were playing with Tamagotchis or other things?

It's not the most exciting story: I've wanted to make a modern take on Tamagotchi for a long time. In one of my early design documents I had the pets hatching from packages/boxes rather than eggs. (Since then we went back to eggs) The word Pakka means package or packet in Norwegian/Swedish, but sounds adorable in English, so it became their names. :)

Hey there! So nice to see you here, on TamaTalk! ;)
I'm not sure if you remember me, but I did contact you with a few questions about Pakka Pets sometime ago. :D
And you told me that the game should launch somewhat July-ish - what happened? I mean why is it going to be around November now? :<
It's great to see that you are trying to make just one in-game currency, this would be a super nice change after all those games that only wanted to make a profit on users. ;/ They always seemed to make super simple, not really nice items to buy for the in-game currency and then there were super cool stuff available to buy only for real money - so not cool! -.-
The influence of the Animal Crossing and Tamagotchi (and other well known games) is a great idea, I always enjoyed Easter Eggs etc. in games. :D
Keep up the great work and pleeeaaase, don't make us wait too long! :D

Btw, I already made a topic like this HERE ;)
