Welcome to the world of Pakka! In Pakka Pets you'll raise adorable pets called Pakkas. It will be up to you to cook foods for your pet, take them on adventures, and make sure they experience all of the joys Pakka life has to offer. Each pet is a dynamic little creature that will have it's own likes and dislikes, needs, personality, and destinies. Through your Pakka journey, you'll get to raise tons of different pets ranging from cute cat-like creatures to tiny robots and everything in between. There are over 50 Pakka Pets to discover, and even more to come.
As your pets grow up, they change into new and exciting evolutions. Pakka Pets hatch from eggs into babies and eventually evolve into children, teens and finally adults. How your Pakkas evolve will be entirely based on the care you've given them. You can get a new Pakka Pet every time you play. Everything from the love you give your pets, your Pakkas' diet, sleep schedule, and experiences play a role in determining which Pakka Pet they will become. Figuring out how to get each evolution will be a puzzle in itself!
Gameplay and the Pakka World
Pakka Pets is designed to be played leisurely whenever you have a moment in your day. In your play sessions you'll be feeding and playing with your pet, growing food for them in your garden, decorating your Pakka's room, and gathering materials out in the Pakka World to later craft into tasty treats for your pet. There is a big world with exciting places for you to discover. Throughout the game you can unlock bus tickets that give you access to different parts of the Pakka World. You can visit the Castle of the Pakka King, play in parks, and visit deep mines and caves where you can discover mystical treasures!
In addition to caring for your pets, you can make their home a beautiful place to play in. Your house will be fully customizable from floor to ceiling. You'll constantly get new opportunities to snag awesome furniture, wallpapers, and decorations to spice up your house.
Raising the Perfect Pet
It's your responsibility to raise your Pakka until they are ready to head out into the Pakka world on their own. When your Pakka Pets are ready to leave home, they will reward you with Happiness Crystals based on the Happy Moments you have achieved throughout their lives. These Happiness Crystals will unlock new crafting options and expand the game, so that when you raise your next pet, the game will have even more possibilities. Each Pakka Egg you have will always be available when you're ready to raise a new pet. This is why the Pakka Eggs we are offering through Kickstarter are so valuable - each egg is like a whole game in itself.
Why not treat yourself?
We think the best way to give you Pakka Pets is to make it free to play. Playing with your pet each day is a ton of fun, and you'll be earning Gems (the in-game currency) as you play. Everyone likes to treat themselves every now and again. Maybe you'll want to get that new decoration for your room, send a gift to a friend, or maybe get that special item a little faster than normal. And remember! Pakka Pets won’t happen without your love and support. If you're a Kickstarter backer, not only will you bring Pakka Pets to life, but as our early fans, you’ll also have access to ridiculously cool exclusive content that will no longer be available once these rewards are sold out!

Who we are!

Willem Rosenthal - Game Designer & Artist (right)
We've been making games since we were kids, and later we both went on to gain experience in the gaming industry. After working together for some time, one coffee lead to another and we decided to seize the opportunity to travel the indie road. Over the last year we've been building our game studio Proto, and are excited to create super fun spectacular games for you!
We want to make Pakka Pets on our own terms. We believe that the best games and most creative experiences come from small teams that have the flexibility to do crazy things. Pakka Pets should be ALL fun, ALL the time.
This means that we are going to need a little help from all of you!We are so excited about what Pakka Pets is shaping up to be. This is our chance to get a direct connection with the people who want to make this game a reality.
Here is where the money will be going:
With your help, Pakka Pets can be completed by mid-2014. We can’t wait to get it in your hands!!!

Risks and challenges
Pakka Pets has come really far since it's initial concepts. It's really shaping to be something incredible. It's wonderful to see how far we've come, and even more exciting to see the goal in sight. We are so close.
Our engine is built, we have core gameplay, and what we have is really fun. What we have left to do now is generate glorious content and get it out into everyone's hands. This means that the scariest parts of the game's development are over! We know how all the remaining layers of game play will fit in and how to make them awesome.
We have been making games our whole lives. We've collectively shipped six games and each have four years of professional game development experience. We've seen and overcome our fair share of hurtles, and we are SUPER confident that with your support this project is going to be completed with the finesse, love and attention that it deserves.
Thank you for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Most Tamagotchi-style pet games have mini-games like rock-paper-scissors, match 2 or catching falling fruit. It was super important to us that any games we add feel more like activities with your pet. In Pakka Pets we are trying to make our 'games' a seamless part of the experience. Cave exploring, teasing your pet with food, growing plants and playing outside in your garden are some examples. We have many more games and activities planned, but a lot of what goes in the game will depend on Kicstarter's funding!
We really care about this game and we'd love to reach all of our stretch goals. Kickstarter money goes primarily toward food and rent during development. Each stretch goal is going to take more time, so in order to work on them we'll need more funds. If you see a stretch goal that you like, please tell your friends and everyone you know, and let's hope we reach it!
We'd absolutely love to add player-to-player interaction in Pakka Pets. It'd be so cool to add the ability to have a friends list and be able to visit, chat, and play with other Pakka friends. It entirely depends on how far Kickstarter goes!
These codes will be similar to the kinds that you would see in games from the 90s. They will do things that let you play with the game's world in fun and interesting ways. Some examples: Make your pets grow huge, alter gravity & bounciness of food and objects, strange weather indoors, rot & un-rot food
NOTE: the codes we give out are going to be a surprise! Some of the ones on this list might be in there, and there will be others that we include that aren't listed here!
Yes. We are still working out the specifics, but we will at the very least back your pet & room data on the cloud.
Yes, you will definitely be able to play Pakka Pets on iPad, but it may not be iPad native. This means visually that the game will run up-scaled to fit the iPad screen size. Fortunately, we have been developing Pakka Pets in such a way that will make it possible for us to make it iPad native eventually. An HD iPad native version is definitely not out of the question for our future. We'll just have to wait and see!
