While it’s definitely an impressive result from a single person, the game itself is pretty lacking in things to do. I enjoyed the variety of foods, and the fact that if you overfed the poor thing it would just vomit everywhere. I had some particularly bad luck though and through the course of an hour of play my YottaPet only used the litter box twice, and mostly just ran its face in to the wall.
- The duck character & animations are great
- Random food
- Needs more to do
- Either needs more chill or more challenge
I would really like to see more from this game. What’s here right now is a good start. There’s some really funny moments in the game but they fade quickly - the standouts for me were the first time it took a dump and the first time I took a pizza out of the food dispenser. I kept hoping that the critter itself would do more funny things - but as mentioned above it had a real affinity for sticking its face in the wall.
There wasn’t enough pressure to make it feel like a management game and the game doing its thing wasn’t entertaining enough to feel like a pet game to me. If you want to continue developing it I would say either make the management part more tense (i.e. cleaning up poop takes long enough that other indicators are in danger), or make the pet part more interactive. I wanted to be able to whistle and make it run to the cursor or do tricks or something like that. It’s a very solid base and a very good character!
Care for your beautiful digital creature, feed it, clean its enclosure, give it the love and attention it deserves, even potty train it! Neglect your pet, however, and it will die, permanently deleting your save file.
Describe how your game adheres to the theme
A spiritual successor to the Tamagotchis and GigaPets of the 90s, starring a creature who is itself a re-imagining of the (in)famous Unity Asset Store enigma, Nugget the Duck Thing. A pair of highly unnecessary sequels, wrapped around eachother.
