This is a tamagotchi style pet game, with a little twist of my own. Even though there are many pet games out there I think there is lots of room for creativity in this genre.
The gameplay itself is pretty straight forward, feed, groom and love your pet.
What I'm doing differently is implementing pet creation, where you choose what each part of your pet looks like. The various parts will then be animated with revolute joints(Hardest part of the game to make). At the end when your pet dies you will have a decision to make: Hold a lovely funeral for your pet and get some nice images of the pet to share or have the pet do a glorious last dance.
*The first release of the game only has snapshot sharing, no dancing.*
P.S. I cannot guarantee the game will be ready for the compo, as I started late, but Ive got most of the pet graphics done, just need to do UI, Game Logic, and animation
[Update] Game got accepted on Windows8 Store
