Pet Sim Weyrdlets launches July 23


Ready to get weyrd? We hope so because today, Malaysian indie studio Weyrdworks is thrilled to reveal that its free-to-play virtual pet sim Weyrdlets will launch on Windows PC on July 23! The demo is also part of Steam Next Fest, showcasing its wholesome approach to encouraging focus and enhancing task efficiency.



Described by some as "Animal Crossing meets Nintendogs," Weyrdlets is a desktop virtual pet game that seamlessly blends cute pet-caretaking relaxation with the feeling of accomplishment via genuine productivity. Weyrdlets also features Twitch integration, allowing streamers to engage with their communities during co-working streams or while queuing up in their favourite multiplayer titles.

While you immerse yourself in your work, utilizing features like the integrated Pomodoro Timer and To-Do list, your Weyrdlet will roam around the screen, keeping you company. Additionally, while your pet idles, it earns coins— in-game currency that lets you buy items to customize your pet's looks and decorate their home!

Key Features of Weyrdlets:


Adopt a Virtual Desktop Pet: Experience adopting a unique virtual pet with quirky behaviors. Just like in reality, engage in lifelike interactions - pet, grab, feed, and play with your companion both in-game and on your desktop!

Work and Chill Together: Turn work into play with your companion! Bring your pet onto the desktop to watch videos with you, roam around, and beat stress while you study, tackle emails, or doomscroll.

Personalize and Customize: Personalize your pet and its environment with accessories and stickers, from Viking hats and shades to charming home decor. Express your style and creativity by decorating your pet and its home with flair!

Pet-Centric Productivity: Increase your productivity with in-game tools on your desktop, including a Pomodoro timer, a to-do list, and then wind down with a daily self-reflection logger. Enjoy enhanced focus and efficiency while your companion keeps you company.

The Weyrdlets demo is available now on Windows PC via Steam, with a full release date of July 23, 2024.
