Youve probably heard that Tamagotchis are making their big comeback this year, but unless you were born in the last millennium, you probably never actually played with one yourself.

So whats the hype all about? In the mid 90s, before there were mobile games. Tamagotchis ruled supreme as the ultimate virtual pet.

The game existed on the screen of a flat, egg-like plastic contraption with four buttons and keychain on top. Tamagotchis appeared as black lines on a grey screen without a backlight, so it wasnt possible to see the screen in the dark. The plastic came in all kinds of colors and styles (including coveted transparent models), but the game was really about the creatures themselves.
