Takashi Murakami Ventures Into Gaming With Handheld Digital Pet
Reminiscent of a ’90s classic device: the Tamagotchi.
Known for his trademark flower patterns, Murakami recently announced on Instagram that he has been developing a small handheld game for children for almost a year. Inspired by the Tamagotchi, a ’90s classic device, the upcoming gaming model is enveloped in pixelated petals of pink and white as a tribute to the Japanese artist’s work. “This is the first time in my life that I have been involved in developing a game. It will presumably be ready to launch in the summer of next year,” Murakami shared in his caption.
The upcoming game made for children is expected to release next summer.
