Happy Pixel Day 2022! I have decided to release this little virtual pet game created in Pico-8 for today.

You must take care of your Pico-Pet. Make sure that they don't go hungry, become sad, or get sick. To do this, press πŸ…ΎοΈ/Z/C/N in order to bring up the menu and to select options. Press ❎/V/M to go back. If you take good care of your pet, it might grow up to become one of eight pets!

Game saves automatically and will restore your save when you start the game. If you want to start clean, press "Enter" to go into the pause menu and enter "Wipe Save." Doing so will restore everything to their default values and you won't be able to restore them back. Use at your own risk.

Special Thanks to Spaghetti for helping me with how long it takes for stuff to happen!

The game be found on itch.io where you can donate to me and support future projects AND you can download an executable version for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
