Bugaboo Pocket

Today, Elytra Games announced that its upcoming title Bugaboo Pocket will be launching on Switch in the future. It’s currently targeting a 2024 release.

Elytra Games is a virtual pet game, but there’s more to it than that. There’ll apparently be a story that plays a key role and features like currency that can be earned in minigames and by cleaning up the pet waste.

Here’s some additional information:

An elevated, story-driven virtual pet game starring bugs from land, air and sea! Spoil them with pets, food and furniture. Earn poop currency through minigames and by cleaning up their oopsies. Discover how even the smallest action impacts your friend. Release bug eggs to regrow their forest home!

See bugs in a whole new light! Great for people who don’t love bugs (yet) and validating for people who already do. Every pet is inspired by a real world critter. Learn about their lifecycles, habitats and food sources.

Play as a research scientist helping a forest recover after a devastating fire. Discover her story through cutscenes, diary entries, and items. Complete your bug compendium to unlock secrets and prizes!

Bugs only die of old age, so it is perfect for players looking for a cozy experience.
