Title: TamagIchi - building tamas together
Post by: m15o on March 20, 2022, 04:56:45 pm
Hi all!

Over the last few weeks I've been having fun building what's essentially a tamagotchi simulator. It's a server where tamagotchis live, sleep, age, etc. It replicates a lot of the Gen 2 functionalities. One connects to the server through a browser and every action happens live.

There is still a lot to be done! I'd love for this project to be collaborative, I know there are some incredibly talented artists around here, so if you ever want to take part, take a look at this page (https://m15o.ichi.city/tamagichi/). :)

The display is very small with only 32x16 pixels. I've created a simple tool on the above link to make creating tamas / assets simpler.

I'll update you all on how it's progressing! :pc:

Hiii everyone!  :)) I thought I'd give an update on this one. It's changed quite a lot since the moment I started working on it. It's now live on wobble.town (https://wobble.town)!

I went through many iterations with this project, starting with a much more complex idea: re-create an online tamagotchi that features most of the functionalities of the gen 1 & 2. These are incredible little devices but they require lots of time and attention. Perhaps, a little too much? I didn't want to create something that might induce stress to someone as they go through their day. Or that requires them to stop what they are doing to play with their tama. I wanted something simpler, something calming. So I decided to strip down the idea to one essential thing: feeding the tama at least once every 5 days. If you can't feed it, it's okay, other people can... although the tama might get sad. After a while, the tama grows into different stages  (child, teenager, adult...). I've changed the name to Wobble, because it's a funny name, and here we are! Also huuuuge thank you Neonriser for sending drawings! I've used some but not all... yet!
