Loved the sound effects and the distortion that happened. I didn't get what the Up and Left did.

Agh, this is so cute. I kind of fumbled my way through for a while and got to age 12, but I got the impression it would have just gone on forever. I want to find my old tamagotchi now...

It does go on forever! Its just a simplified version of a tamagotchi, half the fun is figuring out how to keep it alive (i never bothered to read the directions on mine when I was a kid)

Neat little tamagotchi-like game. :) Was frustrating at first but felt great to figure out how to keep it alive. Nice work!

Nice job! This really took me back to the DigiPet days! If I 'accidentally' mistreated it, the background would flash red. It looked like maybe there was supposed to be some text, but it flashed by so quickly I couldn't read it.

Nice! Hope someone was taking better care of you during your flu than I did of my ++pet. Also I hope no one kills you just to find out how old you are. (It was 21. :( )

Nice simple game with good looking graphics and audio. Not very playable for more than 30 seconds though :)

Apr 30, 2013 @ 3:36pm

Good work for going under flu. I liked the touch of it suffering when you weren't treating it right. I am happy cleaning poop was so efficient and easy.

Very cute, I'm not sure I entirely figured out what the buttons do, aside from right, but I kept it alive to 13 D:

Haha, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Very cute game though. :D

I hope you're feeling better. I think I figured everything out. I eventually just offed my little guy because I didn't feel like literally putting up with it's crap anymore. Overall, I enjoyed the game; I just with it were more fleshed out so I could have enjoyed it even longer.

May 12, 2013 @ 9:03am

Played 'till it got around 50+ years and it still didn't get a job, when can I pre-order the DLC with said feature? (bretty cool game btw)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
