Very cute game, great idea! I included it in my Rousr's Virtual Pet Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Nice! I absolutely like the idea to feed files to the virtual pet, this is something really unique – I fed him its own game files … is that cannibalism ^^

You did a good job, I really liked the art and the wrapper was pretty cool to use. The controls were a touch confusing at times and it got a little cumbersome to have to have the windows explorer open right next to it in order to drag over files, but all in all you did a very good job!


Feel free to check out our entry when you get a chance!

Oh my goodness, this is such a cool concept! And such a great aesthetic too with the console-shaped window and the adorable trash critter. I'm glad I finally have a use for my 200 desktop files!

Hahaha, yeah! Finally a use for my memes folder ♥

I like this one a lot!  I couldn't figure out where to find a file to feed my pet.   Later Dave explained that you need to find files on your pc and drag them over the game.  My pet starved because I couldn't figure out where in the game to find a file :/

Sorry, we just added another disclaimer on the page so it's clearer.

I really don't have words to describe. Perfect would be a good start but no way it's only perfect, it's pretty far beyond perfect. Congratulations!

Thank you so much, it means a lot!
