Tamagotchi emulator, 2nd beta.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is a continuation from this post.

 

It is still incomplete, but I would appreciate it if you could help me test it while I continue working on it.

 

Added features:

  • Teen stage (84 characters).
  • School, with a game per skill.
  • 13 more games at game centre.
  • Connection based on code exchange.
  • You can make friends at the park from 12 PM and exercise when there is nobody there.
  • Mail.

 

Here are some images from Sammy, the Ichigotchi:

About connection:

 

The connection feature (under the option online, even though it no longer connects to the internet), is code based.

When you are in the connection screen (above) you can press c to copy your code to the clipboard and enter to introduce your friends code, which has to be copied to your clipboard.

 

You can also play with Tamagotchis you meet at the park without the need of using codes.

 

 

You can download it here!

*Note: Installing at the default location may be troublesome, so you should create a new folder for it yourselves*

 

Please tell me if you find any bugs or if you have any problems with it!

 

Bye!

This is pretty marvelous. :D What language did you use to code this in?

I am glad you like it! I am using Python, or Pygame, to be more specific.

I played the original beta and loved it! The features you're including in this one seem insane. I can't wait to try this version out, though I'm stuck on an old Linux laptop for a few days so I'll have to wait a bit.

Any chance this will ever be available for Mac? I'm simply dying to try it out!

I am very happy to hear you are interested in the game, unfortunately, it seems like it is not possible to create a Mac installer from a Windows system. It seems like I would have to create a Virtual Machine for OS X and then create it there, but the explanations I have found thus far do not seem very clear...

 

I will continue to look at it, but my current priority is to continue the development of the game itself.

 

For now, I would suggest trying to get a Windows Virtual Machine on your computer, since in seems to be simpler, and it should work there.

 

I apologise for the inconvenience.

I can't believe I haven't heard about this before. It seriously adorable and it has a ton of promise. I do have a few suggestions though.

 

It would be amazing if the entire game, exept text entry, were playable by mouse. Adding scroll and buy buttons on the shop screens would be a life saver, as the player wouldn't have to switch between mouse and keyboard (this would probably have to replace the shopkeeper sprites)

 

Toutorial screens for the games would be really great

 

And now for some feature requests!

 

Talking to your character (like on the 4u)

Mod support

Accesories for adults

Gay tama marriage (just something that I always wanted on a tamagotchi)

Thank you for leaving a comment! You are right about it being better to make all the game playable by mouse. I will change it for the next beta!

Some games are a bit hard to understand, so it is true that I should add something to clarify the rules. So far I have only added some hints in the backgrounds of some.

-This would be nice, but in the 4U, for example, each character has its own way of speaking, which would be almost impossible to do with the amount of characters this has. Plus, unlike in the modern Tamagotchis, I am imagining them as subspecies rather than a single character. (i.e: Instead of there being only 1 Gozarutchi, there are many different Gozarutchis with distinct personalities.)

Since I am already using some sort of "individual values", I could use them to determine the way of speaking of each Tamagotchi.

 

-I am not exactly sure of what you mean by Mod support, could you please explain?

 

-I also considered clothing/accessories, but these only worked in the modern versions because the characters had similar body types. Since I am also using characters from the vintage era, it would be much harder to implement such function.

 

-...How else would my OTP be cannon? (Plus, I do not have to add a gender filter that way!)

- That's understandable. it would be great if we could interact with our pet on the main screen by clicking on it. Kinda like a c button animation

- mod support = the ability to make our own items/foods/games/ect

- That's a shame, i was thinking as long as their heads are in roughly the same place thing like hats and glasses would work. i guess not

- :D :wub:

 

One extra suggestion; the ability to resize the game window (like to 2x, 3x and 4x)

There is already some mod support. You can use custom backgrounds by placing a 240 px x 160 px .png image in the folder named "Backgrounds". These will become available for purchase at the 'Remodel' option at the TamaDepa.

Making more complex things like items or games would be more difficult, but I do plan to add some more mod support.

Being able to resize the window is a good idea, so, I will think of a method to implement it!

Hey! I absolutely love this concept, it's super fun to play and mess around with too! Now will you be making a growth chart with it or are you gonna keep things secret? I think it's fun either way, I'm just wondering. Keep up the good work though, I really hope to see some cool new features in the future! :3

Thank you!

I will not reveal the growth chart yet, but when I finish the complete version of the game I will put it in a spoiler, so people can ignore it if they want to.

 

Also, regarding the other message about the fast pace, I think I will add a tutorial screen before the games (as suggested by Igel-Fullmetal), so people can get prepared for the game.

(The screen will not go away until it is clicked on)

wow, know this is definitely a more interesting then that over tamagotchi emulator, aslo if you are doing test builds every now and again may i suggest you do what yandaredev the creator of yandare simulator does and make a blog that introduces new builds from time to time.

You can make a blog on wordpress and even upload builds on there.

It's just a suggestion, i will defiantly try it out.

There are lots of adult characters yet to be sprited, so I would be more than happy if you would like to help me!

If you are want to help me with that, please send me a PM!

 

Honestly, if I had to sprite all characters on my own, I think I would die...
