iGotchi is your very own interactive virtual pet. However, your iGotchi is more than just a pet, it's a companion and friend. Just like a real pet, iGotchi's eat, drink, play and sleep throughout the day and night. And just like a real pet, you need to provide it with food, water and love. When playing, your iGotchi will respond to your touch. Each iGotchi has a unique personality, different food and water needs, and varying levels of activity. When you get an iGotchi, you take on some responsibility for its health and well-being. iGotchi's are fun, entertaining and unique creatures. Your iGotchi will love you unconditionally and provide you with endless joy and happiness.
