Inside the Theme: Feed Me, Human! (Digital Pets)
Around the IGGPPC, we love our pets both real and digital. This month’s theme, Feed Me, Human! is an homage to our pets that exist in cyberspace. Somewhere between Pogs and Furbies, the “it” toy to have was the Tamagotchi. A keychain-sized digital pet that required love, attention, and care - and would die without them. These digital friends have adapted to our smartphone apps and exist in new games like Neopets, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Go. The IGGPPC staff are here to share a bit about their virtual critters and introduce some IRL pets too!
