The Tom Saga: The Misadventures of a 168 in 1 Virtual Pet!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone! I finally figured out how to upload pictures (this thread was originally asking about that-) I'm new here and the first thing I want to do is to create a tama log! Upon seeing other people's log, I enjoy them very much and feel so inspired to do my own! 

I made this little journal noting the progress of the bootleg 168 in 1 virtual pet that I have accidentally adopted and dearly named Tom! Of course, this was an old log. I previously posted these on Reddit and on the Tamagotchi FB group (he’s quite well-loved by a lot of people there too!). So I decided to post about Tom on Tamatalk because I think people here might like to read about Tom and his saga :)

This log first started as a joke but later on (and even till this day) I had actually grown a deep attachment to this special bootleg virtual pet named Tom.

Anyway, enough of the intro- Now I present to you, The Tom Saga: The Misadventures of a 168 in 1 Virtual Pet!

Was feeling unmotivated to take care of my Sweets Meets lately so I decided to take a break. I still wanted something to look after though so I booted my fake tamagotchi for fun and decorated it. I'm sure most of y'all are familiar with this bootleg version 😂

This is Tom. He doesn't know this but he's a fake tamagotchi, I don't tell him that because that will break his heart. He's also a hacker apparently and gets sent money everytime he hacks. So be careful. Tom takes a form of a betta fish but he also sometimes turns into a chicken everytime he is happy or confused. It's been a while and it's a miracle he hasn't resetted himself yet.

I don't know why and how but suddenly Tom has transformed into a bird. This happened right before my eyes. First of all, I was surprised he was still maintaining, he hasn't reset himself at all since yesterday. And second, he turns into a bird after I bought a ribbon and clicked on the Yin Yang thingie. I think I may have discovered something new. He now can access other things he couldn't before and unlocked a game of seesaw. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with his new transformation though. I miss his old fishy self but Tom seems okay with having a beak and feathers. Most importantly, legs.

After the last update, I decided to purchase more items in the shop. There are 3 items: a headband with a bear face on it (or what may seem like it), a ribbon, and a heart with tiny wings. Every time I buy an item (the prices are very inconsistent every time), I would click on this Yin Yang symbol and Tom would change form. So that's exactly what I've been doing lately.

Poor Tom had to go undergo many transformations because I was curious what he was going to turn into each time! A chicken, a frog, a whale, a beetle, an anime boy, a muscular robot man- even some of the weirdest creatures I can't seem to make out what they are. Of course, Tom hadn't taken much notice of his ever-changing appearance in the past hours as I made him busy with his hacking job (I needed the money for his transformations). And again, Tom hasn't reset since the day I booted him up. In fact, I'm getting a bit tempted to reset him myself because I wanted his old fishy self back but I'll continue working on getting his old-self without resetting! I think I'll only make him transform once a day or week now so Tom doesn't get too tired. He's been working all day to get some money and his clients kept sending him poop! Poor Tom.

Here's a little video of one of Tom's transformations:

Quick update on Tom: Lucky fella is still alive! I'm not even sure if it's possible for him to die (but he does get sick so it's possible?) Not even a single reset! I guess that gives me the opportunity to get to know Tom a little bit more and learn how the gameplay of it actually works. Tom is still mysterious to me though. Anyway, look who he is today! He's quite the star! You can't see it in his face but he's actually very excited.

Hi, Tom is still well and healthy. He says he's been more into old school stuff lately. I'm not sure why. Maybe he's going through a phase?

Very Late Update on Tom:

Some of you might be wondering (or not), "how is Tom doing?", "Did he finally turn into his old fishy self?", "Is he still alive?"

Yes, he's still alive. In fact, he's very much alive to the point where I think Tom has reached immortality. I'm now convinced he's indestructible. I neglected Tom a lot (I'm sorry, Tom!) and he hasn't died nor resetted himself! Even his hunger hasn't gone down and his wallet is always full because it refills itself for some reason. Tom has truly reached his peak. This is him now, stronger than ever. Perhaps have been hitting the gym, so that's why he's becoming so buffy. 

This is perhaps his final evolution because I'm not planning on buying any new items to transform him again. I mean, look at him, he's perfect now.

Thank you all for being in Tom's journey with me! He has grown so much from a meek fish to a buffy dragon-looking creature.

Tom is still with us till this day without any reset or death! Long live Tom! It’s been 54 days with Tom and I’m so proud of him (but on Tom's device, it says he’s 65, how weird!)

Not sure if I will continue his saga though. I’ll be taking a break for now :)

      Hello everyone! I decided to share with you about this game I just recently installed on my phone like a few weeks ago (or maybe a month ago? I’m not sure), it’s called Dunpets! As you can see, I’m crazy about virtual pets and any kind of them! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one here. I hope it's okay to post about a virtual pet that's not a Tamagotchi... I'll be logging about them soon too!
      After watching Jaiden Animation’s videos about virtual pets and the Pokemon Nuzlocke run, I kinda wanted to play Pokemon too. But seemingly I was getting buried in a pile of assignments, I didn’t think getting into Pokemon again was a good idea. Then I thought about looking for a game that isn't actually Pokemon but is similar… Thus, I stumbled upon Dunpets! It was the combination of what I wanted and needed: taking care of a virtual pet and BATTLING. I was very excited.
      But in the game itself there wasn’t really much to do. I hadn’t really explored all options yet. And as my assignments were piling up and the semester was getting difficult, I paused the game (which only told me I can do so once in my entire life). And now, it’s semester break and I felt like wanting to explore the game again so I finally resumed the game.

      INTRODUCTION
      hello, my name is deerboy and after a several decade-long break i have finally gotten back into tamagotchi.
      i no longer have my original tamagotchi (perhaps i'll make a new thread when/if i find it), but i recently - literally just today - got a turquoise tamagotchi on.  turquoise isn't my favorite color, but that was the color Target had on sale so thats the one i got.
      CHAPTER 001
      my daughter, a beautiful bouncing LOVEKOTCHI, hatched around 5:30PM my time (AM in her time, because I am somewhat nocturnal lol) today.  she immediately developed a case of discontented anime facial lines, and because i chose not to read the directions, i struggled for a while to figure out how to clear them up.  fortunately tamas are easy to please, so after enough feeding, playing and photography, they cleared up and i knew how to keep them at bay going forward.
      shortly after hatching she turned into a fluffy CUTEHEARTCHI.  it was a good thing i took baby pictures, since they grow up so fast... however, now that she presumably has legs somewhere underneath all that fluff, its time for her to use them.  after a trip to the in-device shop i realized that we didn't have very much GP and i figured it was time that she take responsibility and get a real job.  its a good thing there are ample employment opportunities for children in the tamagotchi world, and i'm happy to report that she's a natural when it comes to picking up flowers in the in-app park and flipping pancakes in the restaurant.
      as of this writing, she has obtained: 2300GP, 2x FRUITS, CREAM SODA, CHICK HAT, RIBBON, CAT EARS, WIG & GLASSES and BUNNY EARS.  not bad for someone whose 5 hours old!

      Hi! This is a first for me, doing any type of game log. My name is Dame, and I played Tamagotchis when they originally came out, but never that much. I now am busying myself with my Magic Blue Tamagotchi On.
      Currently:
      Hoshipontchi ♂ (First in run)
      Other things to note:
      I am nocturnal, so I have set my Tamagotchi time to be 13 hours ahead of my time. I am using the Tamagotchi On app everyday. I am looking up some information, but not much. I am not planning on getting any certain Tama or anything off the bat. I am fine with being offered tips or advice! I am looking for people to friend on the app who are active.

      Hi! I thought I'd try making a log, since I've always enjoyed looking at them. I might not be terribly active on here, but we'll see!  

      Right now I have a Tengutchi (named Kuma, which means 'bear')! He just got married to a lovely little ninja lady today...


      And here is his little blob son!

      When I was a kid, I had this pet and could never get it to grow into an adult. We weren't allowed to have virtual pets at school (this was when they were huge and almost everyone in my class had one!), so I begged my mom to take it to work and care for it... I couldn't even mute it and sneak it with me, because even when it's muted, you still hear the attention beeps and it wants attention every 15-20 minutes or so. However, each time she'd bring it home it'd be dead. I could never get this thing to grow and eventually the batteries died or I lost track of it, but something reminded me of it recently. While looking around, I happened to find a still sealed Bobo Panda Byte for a reasonable price on ebay, so I jumped on it.
      Now that I have a new one, I've figured out why it died so often, so I thought it'd be fun to log my progress into the new stages of growth! I originally joined to ask for help from any other Panda Byte players, but it doesn't really seem like there are any active here at the moment, unless they just never saw my thread. 🙂 Here is my original thread, it shares a bit of info and activities involved for this pet, if anyone is interested.
      Although I'm starting my log now, my panda just turned 5 today. This is a new thing for me, because it had died a few times already (and apparently many times when I was a kid). It seems that from ages 2-4, you just want to have her watch tv to "pause" her stats from changing, because she'll only eat apples and candy during this time, and they don't fill her hunger hearts. She won't eat bamboo and bread (as far as I can tell) until she turns 5, so unless there is some other secret thing you're supposed to do, I just have her watch tv when she's not sleeping. At ages 0-1, she's a baby and only drinks a bottle, plays games, and sleeps, so there isn't much to log for either of those two stages.
      My panda turned 5 at 10:00 this morning, and appears to have all of her activities unlocked. She can now exercise and do the other learning options/activities (hula hoop and swinging), and finally eats bread and bamboo. I haven't had to dress her for the weather yet, but I'm excited to finally try that once I see a weather icon! She will also apparently run away at times when she gets older, and have friends visit, but I'm not sure what age this happens at. Once she's fully grown, she'll get one of 5 or so appearances, so I'm looking forward to seeing which one I get.
      Here is a picture of her wandering around at age 5 (if anyone has suggestions for a better photo hosting service, let me know lol). I'll try to get pictures of her doing some of her other activities along the way.
