A downloadable game for Windows

As it always happens (at least to me) with Jam games, my entry for Virtual Pet Jam Youjotchi was rushed. I had to cut out some features, the control system was really messy and there were a few bugs. So I decided to fix all (or at least most) of these problems with this version 2.

Here's the list of changes:

  • modified the control scheme
  • added visible meters for 'fullness' and 'tiredness' stats. Now it will be easier to understand when your daughter needs food or when she is sleepy.
  • added a shop where you can buy head ornaments. The player earns money every day, so the more you play the more stuff you can buy.
  • a bunch of minor fixes and under-the-hood improvements

The game is still far from perfect, and there are still a couple of features I wanted to add (like toys to buy, snacks and medicine to give her to restore her stats quickly, etc) but I think I've spent more than enough time on this project, and now it's time to move on to something else.

With that said, I hope you'll enjoy this version of the game. If you still run into bugs or other issues, do let me know.
