Well here we go, another fine weekend project. Nothing to lose except of personal image.

FISHi is a classical digital pet. Watch him grow,
feed him, clean him, and more.

My Home Page

Direct Download

How to play:
Feed him with the green can, clean the aquarium
with the blue flask and heal him with the syringe.
When he gets hungry you will see the green can on
the left side. To play through the whole game takes
up to 12 hours.
I'll leave it up to you to discover the rest.

Escape - quit the game instantly
Left,Right - scrolling through your items
Enter - use an item
Alt+Enter - switch between fullscreen and windowed

Playing this game takes time! (up to 16 hours).
Better try it when there is nothing else to do. Or you have another computer.
You can although modify the Source. In the "shared_values.bas" file change the value "app_speed"  to 100 or 50 for faster game play.

5 minutes passed and he's still a ball. Hrm...I'm not sure I'll like this. And no save feature?

But I love the emulated handheld console style screen and sounds.

It is more a watch game than a touch game, you just feed him and give him injections when he is sick. Sometimes clean the aquarium. As said, there is not really much to do, as long as the speed is low. It's a Fish simulator not Farcry ;) The most interesting point in the game comes when you forget to feed him and forget him even more...

It takes some time before he grows up. And the "ball" is actually a fish egg. It is 4 x 4 pixels! can't you see that? ;D ;D

Yea, i will make something to save too... tomorrow...

The idea was to make a "Tamagotchi" like for my GP2X.
Maybe this game is less playable on a PC then i thought. It is more a screensaver for work than a playable "game".

Tomorrow I'll make a "Fast PC version" with save and "speed as you like config". So that you have fun at least one minute :)

Save with the last time. Emulate condition when run, so the game time will flow even computer or app not run. If u forget to feed it, you will got fish bone in 3 days :P
Even just one flap of butterfly can make storm in the world.
