Recommended Posts

LINE, a popular calling and messaging service available across several platforms have just announced a new feature, and Bandai is delivering some Tamagotchi goodness as one of their launch partners!

LINE Quick Games is the new feature that allows users of the popular messaging service to enjoy games right from within the LINE app. These games within the LINE app are developed using HTML 5. There will be basic games, but in addition to puzzle games and shooting games, LINE plans to offer games utilizing LINE’s chat function.


Bandai has partnered with LINE to launch a Tamagotchi game! This new Tamagotchi game will be quite simple, and definitely sets itself apart from the My Tamagotchi Forever app released earlier this year. Within the app you can raise, feed, and play games with your Tamagotchi. You will be able to marry your friends Tamagotchi’s and mate!

LINE plans on launching this new feature in the summer of 2018, with 8 initial games, including this Tamagotchi game. This new feature will be available later this summer as an application update.

LINE apparently hasn't found much traction outside of Japan, yet. I wonder if this will see localised releases in other countries?

LINE as well as LINE games are decently popular outside of Japan (and Korea), actually. LINE Cookie Run was very popular, though it was recently closed down just because they made a new and improved version that was standalone rather than linked to either LINE or KakaoTalk (Korean version was on Kakao and a lot of people played on it because it had new Cookies ahead of time). There was also a fairly popular game featuring Disney Tsum Tsum.

Hence why I said "much traction", rather than "any traction", of course. ;)

 

I've rarely heard mentions of LINE come from outside of Japan and Korea, and even then it's usually from the enthusiast-press.

 

Still, it'll be interesting to see where Bandai and LINE go with this Tamagotchi title. I must say that I didn't expect it, considering that My Tamagotchi Forever is still pretty recent!

Is this app Japan exclusive? Everything looks like it’s in Japanese and line is based mostly in Japan!

It probably is. Line has a lot of english games but still there's a vast majority of games in their original languages that never get translated.

Eh, nothing stops you from playing them in Japanese, a lot of times it's not necessary to know the language to enjoy the game.

The app is now available for anyone with LINE Quick Game - you don't need a Japanese phone to use Quick Game, but all the games are in Japanese. I havent been able to use the app much just yet - my Tamagotchi is sleeping so I think it runs according to the Japanese timezone, but from what I can tell it's just a standard Tamagotchi, perhaps with a few additional features.

Can someone help me figure out how to get the game going? I downloaded the Line app and don't see it in the list of games. What do I do next?

Wanna create a Line group? Apparently you can marry your tamagotchi like in M!X and trading items sounds cool too. Also, is it already to play? I have the app but I don't seem to find it anywhere

Ok, I got it. First go to this link: https://twitter.com/line_qg/status/1041914714618568705?s=20

It's the twitter account of Line Quick Game and that's the tweet about the Tamagotchi vers. You must open the link featured in that post with your Line app. If you're not a Line Quick user, it will ask you to register (it will doit automatically once you allow it). Then the Line Quick Game account will be added to your list. And you can access the games with that chat! Once you're searching the games, look for the pinky icon with magenta/pink letters. That's the Tama!

Sorry for errors, english is my second language.

And I'm in!!! Thank you for the help. I just could not figure it out on my own. LOL. A group sounds like fun! What do we need to do? We can add friends?

I don't really know yet how to add ppl... As soon as I figure out how to do it I'll post it here! I guess we need to add the line users and the game itself will reconize wich of our contacts haves the game. But before asking for Line IDs I'll search somewhere if this is true.

Anyway, I'm happy I could help!!

As far as I'm playing the game is good, but saddly, the time is according to the japanese timezone. Wich sucks for me because I have exact 12 hours of difference. I guess I'll leave my tama at something that seems to be a hotel so it's not completely alone while I'm sleeping.

We have a little farm in our garden and you can also visit random Tamas (playing with them, feed them, etc.).

My fav feature so far is that you can grab your Tama and if you throw it too high it will get angry xD

      The instruction manual for the Tamagotchi ON claims that twins appear "every once in a while, " implying that it is a rare occurrence. I am challenging this claim with circumstantial evidence that points towards it actually being based on genetics in a similar way to how physical traits are determined.
      I am currently in the 15th generation of my Tamagotchi family. After tallying up which generations included twins and which didn't, I found that there were 10 out of 15 instances in which twins occurred. You could even take the first generation out of that, since it is impossible to have twins on the first generation, which would make it 10 out of 14 instances. This means that over 70% of the time, I have received twins, which is way too likely to be, "every once in a while." 
      This could be chalked up to really good luck, but it's not as fun that way, is it? I honestly believe, based on my results, that my Tamagotchi bloodline is somehow predisposed to twins. My first set of twins happened immediately in my second generation, which sparked the long line of twins to come. I think Bandai knew what they were doing with this, as in they intentionally made it this way just to add depth to the genetics mechanic as a whole. 
      Let me know what y'all think.

      So when I got my ON I noticed in the connection icon that it lists "Tamagotchi", "Download" and "App" as connection functions.
      Tamagotchi is to connect with another Tama, App is for any interactions with the ON App, but then there's Download. I assume this is how Meets interact with the Meets stations over in Japan because that's the only other connection there could be. So I figured Bandai had something in mind for the west, either with our own ON Stations or something else. After all why keep a feature in the unit that users have access to if it wasn't something that was going to be in use. If it wasn't going to be used Bandai would have removed the feature or prevent access to it by removing it from the connection icon menu if removing the feature overall would glitch the programing. That's why with video games there are test rooms and text textures and stuff still there, because removing them would glitch or severely break the game.
      And Tama Palace showed this a while back: https://tamapalace.tumblr.com/post/186961460353/tamagotchi-on-stations-bandai-america-has-another
      Bandai had something planned but it fell through and theirs a chance their working on something else. I think we could get our own versions of the stations like Japan, who knows stores might be willing to set aside shelve space if it means an intensive to get people into physical stores after the internet has made less reason to go to physical stores. I'm not saying they have to be the same size as their Japanese counter parts.
      Maybe you could use your phone in connection to the unit with bluetooth to download stuff from certain areas via Bandai's website. Like go to a major spot (Like Times Square for example since Tokyo has a station), open your phone and go to Bandai's Tamagotchi page were there would be a special button to interact with, put your Tama in front of the phone and select download on your Tama after taping the button on your phone on the webpage? I'm not the most well versed in this stuff so I'm now sure how it would work out if this is possible or not.

      My G1 black and white tamagotchi isn't sleeping. It is a toddler that usuallly falls asleep around 8:30, and an hour later it is still not sleeping. I'm afraid it's becoming restless, what do I do? 😨

      Hello!
      This post is about vintage, connections and up to uratama. About how to repair them.
      My native language isn't English, so this might be a bit of a strange read. 😋
      If you have a pet that have lazy buttons or fading screen, or maybe doesn't seem to work at all, there is a thing you can do.
      You can open up your device, it's easy! Take out all the screws, but remember where they are supposed to sit! Then you can take the screen off. It's No worries! And of it's broken - take the chance to fix it! It's no problem!
      Then after you have taken off everything, you clean everything on the circuit board.  Careful! With alcohol or some other ok liquid for cleaning electronic stuff. You do this with a cotton wad stick, like those for the ears... But don't use a used one! Don't be cheap, take a new one. It's worth it.
      Then if something is wrong the paper behind the screen on your Tamagotchi, like water damage maybe? Then you can throw away and make a new one! Draw something naughty and put it where the old paper was and TADA! New background.
      Make sure to clean the buttons and where they push! Press them a bit insideout and clean.
      Well, after everything is clean, you put it together!!! Remember where the screws went??? I hope so. They have different sizes you know. But don't worry - you did! Yay! It wasn't hard at all and there wasn't many of them!
      When the little critter is put back together, you put the batteries in and try it out. The screen will be stronger now and the buttons a lot bettet!
      But if it still does NOT work it might have something else wrong. You might need to solder. That is a bit more advanced. 
      You'll need to change the 47uf capacitor! I'll write how... It's the funny round things with legs. You need to get it out! Cut it out of the circuit board and make sure EVERY part of it is out. Ok? Then you take your new 47uf capacitor and put it in it's place! Make sure it sits the right way! And you solder that capacitator into place! 
      But some pets use different capacitators, so get the right uf. Ok? There are different volt in capacitators but Tamas use very little.
      Soldering isn't so hard. Save your Tamagotchi!
      (If it's just your sound wires, then you can hot glue them.)
      Anyway... I hope this wicked post helps a Tamagotchi breeder... Somewhere.
      A take apart video!!! Notice the screen. Clean it!
      Look! A Good guide for yr EYEs! (This guy knows Tamagotchi!)
      Good Luck! 🧐
