What if a tiny pet hatched on your phone? If it loved you, would you love it back?

IMPORTANT: This is a pet and not a game or an app! Fugu have a naturally gentle disposition and require minimal care as a pet, but thrive when given extra love and tasty fruit!

• Fugu need to be fed fruit at least once a day for a healthy diet
• Give your Fugu plenty of love and attention and your pet will shower you with gifts and show off its happy dance!
• Spoil your pet with gifts from the shop, including a toy camera and a trick whistle to train your Fugu to be a performer!
• Tuck your Fugu in for a quiet night recharge by plugging in your phone with Hatch open

Do you feel ready to adopt your very own Fugu pup?

It's time to visit the colorful world of Hatch and meet your new adorable pet!

Let me fill you in on the way to your egg! I think it's super excited to meet you too!

What's New in Version 1.5.5

Max and your Fugu, and we're back with shiny fun new things! First up…

It was only a few updates ago that we discovered eggfruit, but it looks like there's a whole new crop of colors starting to grow for fugu who are 3 months or older! And I think these are the most adorable yet! I'll share a full list of the different woodland critters colors on Facebook later this week!

Speaking of Facebook, a few weeks ago when I asked for new decor ideas you came up with the coolest ones! And of course that means…

Yep, I've gone ahead and made some of my favorite ideas and suggestions from you into three new sets!

There's the Fairy Tale themed decor set and castle, proposed by Stephanie C. and it's perfect for a fugu prince or princess! Then there's a Steam Punk set and Fugubot (transformed into fugu house mode) that was first brought up by Miroslav S. And finally, a Japanese Zen themed set with cherry blossoms and a temple home, pitched by Nicky R., Shirlee M., and Sylvia R. I think they all turned out amazing, but you'll have to tell me what you think, I've been staring at them too long!

Meanwhile, it's felt like I've had some spring cleaning to do, so I've caught up on lots of…

They're fun though! Like brand new fidgets your pet fugu picked up, an even larger (but not quite infinite) infinity bag, a better chance for eggfruit during happy dances, and stickers that are prettier when you share them. Plus maybe even a secret eggfruit to hunt for, if you've found every sticker!

I'm also happy to report that my new pet fugu house business had a great opening, and I have successfully found my first holographic card in a booster pack! You're the best.

The adventure continues next update with a mess to clean! I'll share more as that gets closer.

Adorable And Frequent Updates

I have had this app for almost half of a year and I have consistently been enjoying it and having little to no issues with it on my iPhone 5 for the past several updates. While I have over a dozen virtual pet apps on my iPhone (as well as two tamagotchis), this is the only one I check in with daily or almost daily, and have continued to do so for so long. The art, music, animations, and overall aesthetic are all very polished, consistent, and well done.

I will admit this pet app has fewer things to do with your pet fugu than many other virtual pets (no mini games; just fetch and various tricks to teach) but collecting all the decor and working to get the special fruits for new fugu appearance is really charming.

The developer consistently listens to fans and works to fix bugs as well; while the updates can be a bit slow (at least compared to how so many apps do tons of tiny hot fixes, whereas this developer updates fixes in batches), they are consistent in quality and service.

Amazing & a couple of ideas

My first idea you should do is make clothes for your fugu like hats, shirts, pants, even shoes. Second you should make another app that you could write a letter to your fugu and he will write you back. Third you should make more backgrounds, they are just to die for. Fourth you should make temporary dyes so you can change the color for a little time. Fifth give it a new friend, you should go and make more eggs to watch over and care for. And to hope to breed it to keep the population going. Plz let them go and visit new peoples places. Also try of including a bath room or at least a toilet, try to potty train it. Also give out candy or sweets at the store. Everyone has a place for their sweet tooth. Give it books to read,balls to play with, toys to snuggle up with. Plz try including at least one or two in the next update. Ever since the last update, it would exit if I tried to go to the story.

Cool Ideas :)

My lil guys name is Rex and he is 533 days old. Here are some good ideas
---Fetching: it would be nice it we could play fetch with different types of balls, sticks, bones, ect
---Friends: it would be great if we can send our fugu to play and it goes to a random players game and when we want it to come back we call it with the whistle. That way he/she plays and it would be great to come in and have more then one fugu to feed and play with
---Other: also can we have the ability to at least own two on the same game? It would be the best thing. Our lil friends could play while we're away and it would be fun also if they can actually get sick and we have to buy medicine from Max.

:) great app!
