I don't know, if its really worth the effort, but I always admired your
your skill in painting those cool looking sprites. Especially in the
last demo of the V-Pet where you had those evolutional morphings of the
pet looked damn cool and I always wished to really play with that. And I
think this Tamagotchi effect as you approached to do it would be real
fun to have on the VCS. You had the creature and it's thought bubbles,
maybe with the 6-digit-char routine you could even create an iconized
interface. So I think it might be really worth considering to finish it.
