This is an interesting one. Hitogotchi is a 2D game mainly inspired by Tamagotchis, but the difference is that in this game it’s the reverse, instead of you being the caretaker you’ll instead be the one who’ll be taken care of.
With this reversal in role a nice dialogue system was made where you’d request what you desire from your caretaker be it to satisfy your happiness, stamina or hunger. Speaking of hunger, you’re a monster! Better keep that hunger level high..
The visuals & animations are adorable and beautiful, the dialogue is cheerful, and the music is neat. Reverse Tamagotchi meets visual novel with a little bit of adventure, we love it! Hope we get to see more of it in the future.
