Amazing game! It was short and simple but it still had a very creepy vibe. Definitely a game I'll remember.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
- Spanish and Polish translation added. (Thank you to AlphaFeline and Neurosis93!)
- Development of the expanded version officially starts!
- Russian translation added. (Thanks to these guys!)
UPDATE 12/18/15: Post-compo version (v1.3.5) uploaded. Changes:
- New art by ApplePaddle! Animated portraits even! There's a few CGs in there, too.
- Slight bugfixes; No more magical lags at the start!
- Correct Japanese! Now everyone, including me, will be confused of the title.
For Ludum Dare 33, with the theme "You Are the Monster".
The idea was supposed to be a reversed Tamagotchi, where you ask for things to the person taking care of you. Somewhere along the way, I got too into dialogues so.. this happened.
I was planning to join the compo, but then I haven't even written any dialogues during the last few hours, so I ended up in the jam instead.
Still fun though. Hope you like it!
P.S. You might get some lag at the start for magical reasons.

I'm glad to see that you worked even more on this fantastic "Tamagotchi"-like game with its intriguing narrative. <3 In my opinion it would have deserved a much better scoring in the Ludum Dare 33, but eh, what do I know, right? ;> I loved the art style as well and I think, it really has some potential to be transformed into a larger game. :) Thank you very much for this game, which I happily recommendedon our blog as well as uploaded a little gameplay video of it. <3 Keep it up!
Hello... I've seen Hitogotchi's Spanish translation and I've noticed there are some things that are wrong in it.
I hope you can fix this soon, maybe you could ask a native Spanish speaker to help you with it.
is there a mobile version for android?
This is so awesome. It made me so happy! :D
who is the monster really? hehehehe
Hey mane, that was a good game :) Can I translate it to Italian?
Fantastic game. Loved the background art and the song in particular, they were thematically on-point.
i love the game.
Hey, I love this game and you got to know that! Please make more of this game because it is one of my favorite games. I would like for you to add on to the love ending. Thanks for the great game!
The art style is nice the story is great what not to love about it :D
Hay algunos errores ortográficos en la traducción al español. Por ejemplo en la parte donde dice vallas. Cuando en verdad debería decir vayas. Aparte de esos errores totalmente comprensibles, todo esta bien.
It was a real shortie; I could only give it an ironic review as to pore deep into it would offend each of your readers who have adopted a very high opinion of it. Kratzen gave it three stars, the “good” rating, because it is good, and you clearly know how to make a thing such.
I don’t believe this is a dry well; but after two years and with interest waning, you’ll have to work harder to earn another hit. Here’s my advice to you. You’re in a rare spot where you are not an expert and barely an amateur, so for other developers, you can do an extraordinary job of teaching them the struggles of where you are now.
Make as many development logs and post-mortems as you can, but do it on a respectable website like Gamasutra. Tumblr and Twitter are dead on arrival for developers. Build a legacy, and keep hustling. Basic stuff. But you know how few developers do this, eh?
Awesome game went though 3 different ending lol :D
This game was so awesome! I felt like I made a real connection, and I was a pretty good monster!
this is a cute game. rlly like it :))))
It was short but i loved it. I loved the reactions that Nadine had and the good ending (falling in love with her), was just the best, I can't wait for Hito+, but I have a question, will it be free or do we will need to pay?
Great game 4/5 stars just because it was too short
Thank you very much! We're planning for a commercial release, and currently thinking about the possibility of crowdfunding sometime this year. :)
Wow, this game was so nice! The character designs and UI are really cute. I love the way everything bobs around a little bit.
How's the expanded version coming along? Can't wait to play that one and wish that I have a life even more.
Life got in the way, unfortunately. :(
We just posted a little something about it right here though! :)
can you please make an new version for linux?
Sure! Just give me a few days; I'll get into adding some more languages also. :P
(Also, nice name)
Think I originally saw this posted on the Ludum Dare site for Jam 33. Shame I didnt check it out when it was fresh for the Larry Does Ludum Series. The game has a nice charm too it, just wish that there were some more dialogue options or paths you could go down. Along with maybe some sinister noises when the evil voice wants you to eat your caretaker.
Either or I showcased Hitogotchi as a part of my Valentines Day Special this year. So cheers gents.
Hello community! :D
I recently did a video on this game, covering the best ending of the game!
So far, I absolutely loved it! The art style was also incredible!
To the developer, I'd kindly want to request of you to watch the video and give me feedback! :D After all, it is your game and I believe you could give me quite a good feedback on how you think it turned out as a video!
Thank you so much! <3
Hey, thanks for playing! Had fun watching your playthrough of it. :D
Oh GOD, THE GAME IS THE PERFECTION MAKE IN UNITY!!! THANK YOU FOR MAKE IT, MISTER <3
I really love this game. What program did you use to make is game?
I really liked this game. It's cute and gives you a little bit of a challenge.
aaaw so cute. loved the game
This is amazing, the only thing that could make it better is being able to see the monsters face, i wanna draw him so badly ;-;
This is an absolutely adorable game. The character design for Nadine/art is general is so precious. I really loved the whole concept! You did a really good job, and I'm very excited for the expanded version!
Nice game, do you need an Spanish translation?
Duuuude, it's so cool that I even made an itch.io account to write that!
Cute game, well done.
I'm running the latest windows version but it freezes after the unity splash screen. Feel sad because I was really excited to play this :(
For reference I'm on win64, have any idea what's up? I extracted the contents and ran it through the exe.
Hello! Can you send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org? I'll see what I can do. :)
I absolutely adored this game, and would love to see more in future. I can't wait for the extended version to come out. I even created my itch.io account all because of you. Good job!
yaya i got a good ending
I just uploaded a playthrough of this game. Thank you for making this! I had a lot of fun being the monster for a change. :)
You need to manage your bars up at the top left, keeping the hunger especially away from being zero. It is also possible to finish the game with almost all of the bars full. Do this by choosing to: Eat when your hunger (the top bar) is low, Talking to Nadine when your "happiness" bar is low (seen as the middle bar), and Sleeping when your energy is low (being the bottom bar). Hope this helps with understanding!
Why don't you try doing a mobile version of the game :)
