Tamagotchi 20th.com?

Recommended Posts

I actually would love to know of any decent smartphone app virtual pet, I only have Cthulhu Virtual Pet and I think that's the best I've seen on my iphone.

I believe most people outside Japan don't even know tamagotchis still exist (no one I talk to knows), so there's no way to know if they'd be interested.

 

Chtulhu virtual pet is way better then tamagotchi classic app imho

I buy all of the US releases, just because I like to collect at least two from each version. Plus I figure it has to help show Bandai that we don't want to be forgotten! haha.

They could've left the back ground in instead of having to stare into blank gray.

Meh I haven't felt like trying that app since I've always had the real classic tamagotchi :P There was something called Kawaii Pet Megu that was kinda fun but they closed it.

 

I do prefer having it on a different device than on my phone too cause with all the things I do on my phone I end up forgetting about the games. It doesn't seem as something important being just an app with all the other apps. And as time passes apps close, you change your phone, etc. Tamagotchis stay ^^

I like the physical devices as well. There's something so much more organic about holding the device in your hand. To me, it seems more real. But the majority of the consumer market doesn't feel the same way.

I don't see there being another western release anytime soon- not after how badly Dream Town flopped :(

Hey, they brought back the furby why can't the tamagotchi be brought back? Just make them less needy with color screens?

You have to remember the differences between consumer markets in the West and East. Tamagotchi was a completely viable long-term investment for companies in Japan and it's honestly a miracle that it became so popular here in the US and UK! But the market has changed since the 90's and I don't know much about the statistics back then.

 

Furby 2012 was a fairly risky business venture in that it was a Christmas release, similar to the Hatchimal... it went well and continued, but I attribute a few things to this, one of the biggest being phone connectivity (but that's another story for another day)

 

It's obvious that the retailers don't think there's a market for Tamagotchi right now. I don't think neediness and color is the problem. It's just the economy.

 

No harm in being optimistic, though. :)

I'm a pretty big fan of Pakka Pets (http://www.pakkapets.com/). It's a slightly more complex version of Tamagotchi with bright, colorful pixel art and a town building mechanic. You can do quests as well.

 

Egg! (http://www.eggthegame.com/) is pretty fun, too. More complex than Pakka Pets and the in-app purchases are a little more intrusive, but it's really cute.
