I love it, very soothing and the interface is very original.
I'm going to leave it running for a while and see what unfolds :)

Very good implementation of the theme. It's a new kind of idle-game. Very relaxing. Really cool! Great job!

Really cool and smooth game. Like your animations and sounds. The backgrounud color makes me turn crazy though...

I love it! Nice, fun and casual. The graphics are amazing and I like the little animations on the man.

I think I'm gonna keep this open for a while, and poke him every so often. =)

@grid96 sorry to hear that! more people are having problems with the background color :\ it helps to put it on full-screen, but that takes away the idea of the game i guess. I'm thinking of making this into a full game, so then i'll definitely pick another color.
Thanks for playing anyways!

The game itself is cool. Sadly, I can't move the windows itself, so it's kind of stuck in the middle of my screen. :(

Love the simplicity, your sprites and animations!

@Waschtl you can drag the screen by pulling the icon at the left-top side of the screen!

A great looking game! Though I find it quite odd that you chose to use the arrow keys instead of the mouse. I like how it's somehow even cleaner than an actual tamagotchi which actually make it more appealing. An interesting submission!

Ok THAT's awesome. Keeping it on my screen for the night.

Daww, this was really cute, the animations are great. Strange you can't use mouse in it, though.

Nice graphics, and a simple yet fun game. Great job!

The way of polish, especially the cursor and interaction with the things on the screen, that super cute bunny and so on. Such a good work! After some time, the game died:

action number 1
of Draw Event
for object obj_controller:

Trying to use non-existing surface."

I'm not far into it, but I'll say that already it gives me nostalgia - it may be the red & the glove, but it reminds me of playing on super mario 64 as a kid - playing with mario's face that is. the animation and relaxed, fun feel of it certainly bring back those feelings... I really love it because of that! Well done!

(One complaint though - would there be any way to move this window around on screen? I'd like to leave it open while keeping an eye on it, but it's kinda smack dab in the middle of the screen. That aside I like it a lot!)

Oops - silly me. Complaint redacted once I figured it out n_n; sorry about that!

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 ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
