I liked the music and sounds effects, they gave me a mix of calming + curious vibes.

It would be fun to draw your own creature. While allowing the player to drawer their own monster would definitely be a larger feat, a thought I had was to allow the player to draw certain body parts e.g. an opened mouth and a closed mouth and animate between them when the monster eats.

The game is simple but what it does, it does it well - good job!

Check my game out if you get a chance! https://itch.io/jam/game-off-2018/rate/338739

Good job! I really liked the marimba sound as the mouse passes over the buttons. My only real criticism is that it didn't seem like the most hybrid of games. Fun though.

Interesting concept, it's simple and fun, the combination of drawing with real objects works well.
I wish you can interact with more different things in the future.

The game is so soothing and satisfying. Nice concept and I think you extend this idea more to make more playable!! I enjoyed it!

Do check our game too . Thank you!!

Pretty simple idea, I actually thought your own drawing would come to life! Pretty nice to play around for some minutes

Interesting idea. It reminded me of the petting of Pokemons with the brushing and feeding.

I really like the sound design. Hovering over the button and hearing the sound is really nice. The graphics are so nice for this drawing idea and gives this creature a feeling like its a real drawing that is alive.

But the gameplay is odd. Is it like Tamagotchi? Do I need to care for needs or is everything I do useless?

Nearly everything is there to make it a solid game.
