    jp's Parrot Pals (DS)

    [May 19, 2021 11:58:23 PM]
    I picked this up because we have a green-cheeked conure (a small parrot) at home and I thought it might be fun to see how it's represented in the game. The game is obviously a "pet simulator" with what you'd expected the usual features to be - you can train it, develop a relationship with it, play with it, and groom and take care of it. Oh, you can also feed it.

    One of the neat things is that (compared to other animals) you can teach the parrot to say things (yay for the microphone!) which is comedic. I think it just records whatever you say (short snippet) and then plays it back at an accelerated speed (so it sounds more like a parrot - or a chipmunk if I'm being honest).

    Curiously the game has a Discovery Kids branding but the art style feels very much "japanese" (there are human characters that give you tips and such). So that seems odd - but then the game was published by 505 games (which for some reason I'm associating with Halo. So, I did some digging around and the game was developed by Starfish/Noise Factory. (this info isn't on the box or in the manual AFAIK, and I don't recall if it appears in the loading screens - but I got it off Wikipedia). Noise Factory was a Japanese game THAT explains the art direction/style. It makes me wonder if the game was also sold in Japan under a different name? There are other games in teh series (not all pet simulators), but it looks like they're all Japanese-developed... Interesting.
