UPDATE 6/9/16: 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.

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 ;-;

We showed the characters' designs right here actually! :D

>~< ah, hes so beautiful, i will definately be drawing him in the future

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!

Thank you so much! <3

Nice game, do you need an Spanish translation?

Thank you! Send me an e-mail at veggiestewgames@gmail.com. :)

Duuuude, it's so cool that I even made an itch.io account to write that!

..and thank you for taking the time to! <3


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 veggiestewgames@gmail.com? I'll see what I can do. :)

Hi, sorry I should have checked more, it was a multiple display problem on my end :P

Fixed upon restarting my display drivers.

Ahaha, glad it worked out! Hope you like the game. :D

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!

Thank you very much! Hopefully we'll get to post more about it soon. :)

yaya i got a good ending

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

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. :)

guys? how do i get do good ending...thes only.. eat..... at the end...

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!

guys? how do i get do good ending...thes only.. eat..... at the end...

Why don't you try doing a mobile version of the game :)


I had so much fun playing Hitogotchi! Can't wait for the expanded version! :D Thanks again for making such an awesome game! <3


I loved this game so much!!

Can I help with the translation in Portuguese from Brazil? Let me know how to do it.

Hello! Send me an e-mail at veggiestewgames@gmail.com. :)

I don't know if you would be even interested in that, but I can translate game to polish.

Oh! I'll keep that in mind. ;)
