Does anyone here know anything about making a Tamagotchi-esque virtual pet toy? Answered

I just found my old Digimon pet and got to thinking about how cool it would be to design my own model. Unfortunately, I have no idea where to start. If anyone has any advice or knows of a book or website that might have pertinent information, I'd appreciate any help that I can get. Thank you.

You can start by making one entirely in software on your PC. Getting a feel for the software requirements before designing any hardware is a good idea. Besides the software, the hardware can be as simple as a microcontroller, LCD module, piezo buzzer and a few buttons. This could be implemented quite easily as an Arduino shield. There may even be an LCD shield with buttons already made you can use.
