Tamagotchi’s generation-defining features are still resonating with gamers today, and with 14 Hours Productions’ Yolk Heroes: A Long Tamago, you can expect a charming idle RPG that takes inspiration from the OG virtual pet. In particular, the adorably titled and very punny Yolk Heroes is offering this pixel-art adventure to players on Steam, iOS and Android beginning March 19th, so it won’t be long now until you can gear up to protect your land from the Dark Lord.
In Yolk Heroes: A Long Tamago, you’ll step into the role of a Guardian Spirit tasked by the Fairy Queen to raise heroic elves from eggs and fight the good fight. On your quest to protect your realm, you’ll raise and nurture your adventurers across a variety of landscapes and against different foes. You need to feed and train them well to boost their survivability, and this includes prepping them for the cause with the right gear.
Yolk Heroes: A Long Tamago is releasing March 5th on PC and shortly after that on mobile and IOS
The pitch! JRPG + Virtual Pet = Fun?!

Given the idle nature of the game, however, you don’t have to worry too much about your elf once you send them off on an adventure. All you need to do is sit back and wait for them to come back with the spoils of war.
