Very fun entry! I included it in my Virtual Pet Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out. :)


I LOVE the aesthetic, well done. The little flourishes with the working clock in the kitchen and the cooking system are brilliant. A great start to what I hope you keep working on!


Loved the art style! Liked everything a lot! > : D


Very nice! I love so much about this. Team PET hah I got that one! I also enjoyed the exploration of the house very fun.


I must admit I have a soft spot for ASCII games but this one was just great. The SCP-style text was funny and engaging, the pet itself was adorable, the cooking mechanic was surprisingly elaborate but not overbearing. This is one of my favorite games of the jam and I can't wait to see where it goes.


Oh, I adore ascii games. This is so cute. (And I saw that candy box reference!) I love the way the PDA works in particular- although that might be Five Nights At Freddy's training me to assume that it will have moved or attempted to pop up and scare me when I look back at it lol. I was sad when I got to the end, but you did a great job!

Also, I've decided that I need to learn how to make these ascii games myself. It's just something I must do.
