This jam is now over. It ran from 2020-03-02 16:00:00 to 2020-03-31 16:00:00.


I am bootlicker from github!

I started making the uwu virtual pet in Common LISP.

Pretty soon, I started noticing that other people were making little Tamagotchi clones at the same time! I made a joke on the Fediverse that March 2020 must be "Tamagotchi Month", because so many people seemed to be making virtual pets! Pretty soon, the phrase "Marchagotchi" was coined, and a couple of us decided that we might as well make a game jam out of the month!

The aim of this jam is to attempt to complete your virtual pet as much as you possibly can during March 2020!


- You may use any game development environment

- You may use any programming language

- Have fun!
