Hey guys hope you're doing well!

Tamaweb (working title) is a virtual pet game inspired by modern Tamagotchi's aiming to bring a pure experience to desktop and mobile devices.

I've been working on it for a while and even though there are a lot more feature that need to be added I still wanted to share and hopefully gather some feedback from you guys!

You can play the game right now from this link:
I suggest playing on a phone if you can to get maximum immersion

Please let me know how you think, I'd love to hear your feedback :)

!Many of the visuals are placeholders!

PS: I want to eventually replace all the game sprites with custom designs and make the game its own thing (although will keep Tamagotchi sprites as a unofficial modpack) so if you can design custom characters, background, items etc. and are interested in working on this project please let me know, this is a completely free and open source project.

Here's a list of features and to-do list:

## Done:

- Pets with Hunger, Fun, Sleep, Health stats and their individual genetics
- Ability to purchase food and medicine from the mall (each food item has it's own stats such as hunger-satisfaction, healthiness, etc.)
- Friendship system and ability to possibly meet new friends at the park and develop relationship with them by hanging out and inviting them over
- Game Center in the mall and a way to win money by playing games (only one non-interactive game for now so work-in-progress)
- Job system and a way to make money by working
- Your pet will poop eventually and you have to clean them by using the bath option in the menu (if not cleaned, your pet may get sick if exposed to it for an extended amount of time)
- Ability to get Doctor visit to get status on your pet's health
- Offline progression, meaning when you close the game and comeback after some time, all the stats will be calculated as if you had the game open the entire time (although dropping at a much slower speed). note that your pet will be sleeping from 22:00 to 9:00 when offline, so no stats drop during that time.
- Ability to purchase toys and items your pet game play with and use

## To-do:
- Life stages and evolution
- Ability to marry your friends with high enough relationship level and have the baby inherit some of each parents genetics (such as max hunger, sleep and fun and their satisfaction and dissatisfaction and their deplete and replenish rates)
- Ability to get your (and other) pets genetically tested to see the their stats so that when breeding you can aim for specific stat values
- Baby sitter so that your pet can be taken care of when you don't have enough time to care for them
- Ability to purchase furniture and decorate your home
- More Game Center games and activities
- More jobs
- Ability to throw parties and invite your pets friends
- Ability to customize your pet by purchasing clothing and accessories
This looks fun! I'm excited to see how it works out! However, the tamagotchi sprites were made by SA311. I'm not sure if he's fine with them being used, even if they are placeholders. You should probably ask him about it.

One problem I have is that they get sick so easily. It take only a few minutes after they poop for it to happen. I'll leave for 30 minutes and when I come back and check on the health of my tamagotchi, it's always very sick. I don't know if the tamagotchi can die, but it feels like I won't be able to leave it alone for long without that happening.

Some features I'd like to see added are being able to see how long it will take until the energy bar becomes full while your pet sleeps, and being able to see that amount of money you have in the shops.

Hey thank you so much for playing!
Yes for the sprites I have contacted SA311 and let them know about the project and they were kind enough to give me permission to use their sprites during the development, the proper credits are in the Github repo!

As for the sickness if there is uncleaned poo out they will get sick the more they're exposed to it, that and each food has it's own healthiness value so if you're feeding a lot of burgers to your pet it will get sick significantly more.

But I'm completely open to change and re balance these values so I'll look into changing the health depletion rate.

Thanks for the suggestions I had the first one in mind actually to see how long until your pet will wake up, get hungry, etc. I'll add them in as soon as possible :)
