I’m currently obsessed with Neko Atsume, a Tamagotchi-esque game that I downloaded on my iPhone. The game is meant to be sweet and gentle, and played only by occasionally checking in on it throughout the day for a few minutes at a time. The designer made it so children and adults can both enjoy it. It’s weird, but with the world the way it is – Trump saying racist things, the situation in Syria – having something so sweet to focus on is really comforting.
I texted Laura to see if she had heard of it, and she was like “Dude, I already have the expansion pack, and collected the rare cats.” I should have known!
If you want a low-key, super adorable thing to play, check it out!
