More about Animin
Teenagers and kids can play Animin. Players have to care for their virtual pet and nurture it. This has to be done by feeding it, giving medicine and cleaning up its excrement. Apart from the primary virtual pet software, the app will have a set of mini-games which will be unlocked as the pet grows. Figure Games, the firm behind this toy, is planning to make some more pets available, which will grow into different animals as they acquire more XP. They are also planning to extend the main Animin AR app to an online role playing game which will feature the Animin avatar. It will have ties with instant messaging, social networking, VR gaming and many other things.
Figure Games aims to creatively disrupt the toy industry at the Toy Fair with this digital pet. It is their strong belief that there is space for this pet which has been created using the latest mobile and AR technology in a fun and innovative way. This will provide a fascinating experience for kids and teenagers alike.
This new digital toy powered by AR technology is definitely going to make big in the market, once it is released next week at the Toy Fair in London.
