Buddytale is a sweet and heartfelt little virtual pet game that will may you smile and make you cry as you enjoy little snapshots of time together from the day you first meet to the day you inevitably say goodbye.
It’s bulbous and squeaky, but for all intents and purposes your pet in Buddytale is essentially a cute little dog. You can select which one you want from a litter of three right at the start, then you can name it, give it a collar and take it home with you. From then on, you enjoy little vignettes that take place over your new best friend’s lifetime as you care for it, play with it and love it.
It’s a very well crafted experience and a final scene involving a small pixelated heat will break your heart. You really do come to love that adorable chubby little creature throughout Buddytale’s short 10 minute playtime and you really don’t want to say goodbye as the inevitable conclusion draws near. Much like any real pet though, afterwards you’ll still cherish the time you’ve had with your short-term companion and be glad that they bounded into your life. Highly recommended.
