Hello forum, I doubt that I'll be reaching the best target demographic for mobile virtual pet games (who would have the most valuable opinions), but I'm giving it a shot anyway. I've recently been dipping my toes into mobile development on Unity and something I really want to give a try is making a virtual pet game. However, I'm afraid that I might end up making "press button to refill meter" simulator (like a bad Tamagatchi). So, I need opinions. What features would you expect from such an app, at minimum? How dependent would you expect the pet(s) to be? How often would be too often to check up on it/them? What would bring you back to keep checking in on the pet(s)? What would make you actually care about it/them? What level of interactivity would be enough? Would mini games (like match 3 or similar) feel cheap to implement?
