We love pets. You love pets. Everybody loves pets. Who doesn't love pets? We all love pets.
And we wanna make some new pets... some new friends!
So we're going to - and we're gonna do it in 72 hours... give or take, because we like pets but we also have day jobs and you can't give a pet appropriate attention if you're stressed out.
Submissions will be judged, and the winners will enjoy:
* Eligibilty for Physical Prizes may depend on your physical location. Anywhere outside of North America will need consideration due to shipping costs.
The first place winner will get first pick from above, and so on with additional placing winners.
We'll judge it based on the votes everyone submits on a few categories we carefully picked... but we'll drop the lowest score for your project. So, if you're not sure you're going to tackle one of the categories? Eh, no prob, we're not gonna count it then.
First and foremost, your game should be playable and understandable. The voting for this category focuses on how well players know what they should be doing with their pets and how to do it.
Tied for the most important category - if we're doing this, we should do it right and cute. While we're really hoping for some cuties here, cuteness is in the eye of the beholder. Cuteness is also not only skin-deep. Your disgusting amoeba of a virtual pet just might have great personality, who am I to argue?
Now I know... I know... all of you are going to want to do a spin on a Tomagotchi. We all remember those little eggs, we all wanna make one, and many of us will - but maybe you wanna strike out from the beaten path... and if you do, it just might pay off... in the form of votes.
Virtual Pet games can go pretty "wide" in terms of scope and features, so it should be easy to make sure you make complete features before moving on to a new one. And really, we want all our pets to have full lives.
How ambitious of a Virtual Pet did you set off and complete? Did you play it relatively safe? Or did you decide you were going to shun all norms, buy a hololens, and make a life size augmented reality friend?
Unlike pets, not everyone loves rules. Too bad. THE RULES OF THE JAM ARE AS FOLLOWS!
