Media kit The Butterbies - Virtual Pet Game




The Butterbies is a game primarily for children where the child adopts and takes care of a lost caterpillar egg and raises it to a beautiful butterfly. The child needs to regularly clean, feed and play with the virtual pet to keep it healthy so it will evolve to the next stage. This teaches the child the effort it takes to properly look after a pet and it is not a trivial undertaking. If neglected the pet does not die it just looks sad and un-cared for.  There are a large number of butterflies, each with its own personality and profession to collect. 


A butterfly egg is been delivered to the Butterfly village by a stork. The stork is blown off course and the egg falls on the roof of a nearby house. The egg rolls off the roof and lands on the windowsill of the child's bedroom. When the child awakes it sees the egg and starts to look after it and their adventures begin.  


Target audience

Great for 4-8 years old but has general appeal to a wider audience
