Too 'cheep' to live, too fun to die: Tamagotchi reborn for social gamers

Bookmark and Share


If you were a kid in the 1990s, chances are you had a few Beanie Babies cluttering your room, right next to your Nintendo 64 and your electronic pet, the cheeping, egg-laying Tamagotchi.

Now, 17 years after Japanese toymaker Bandai released the original, a whole new generation of children will be able to experience the joy of trying to keep a fictional animal alive...

In the movie MindScans, Tom Sobel, based his ALF's (Artificial Life Forms) on Tamagochi. Do you see the parallels?
