'TouchPets: Cats' Gameplay Video Released

Back in June at Apple's WWDC, we visited ngmoco's San Francisco studios and spent some time with the gamemaker's upcoming TouchPets: Cats, a virtual pet title that follows the studio's earlier TouchPets: Dogs...

Initiated to pop-culture by the mid-90s Tamagotchi device, pet-sims have really taken off on the App Store, but there are surprisingly few that stand out. Fortunately, developers Tasty Poison Games have given us something to talk about with the release of their full 3D dragon-based pet game, Dragooo [App Store]...

When we first had a look at the recently released Pocket Creatures [App Store] back at GDC, it didn't take us long to be enchanted by the too-cute, pikachu-like pet sim with an apparent wealth of things to explore...

'TouchPets Dogs' Hands-On Preview

I fully admit that I felt that I was completely outside of the demographic that virtual pet games appeal to and I think a good part of our readership likely feels the same way.
