Anyone who owned a Tamagotchi in the '90s (meaning basically anyone who was alive in the '90s) remembers the horrible, sinking feeling of loss that you experienced when you accidentally left your little virtual pet alone for a few days. You'd wake the thing up only to find that it had drowned in its own shit because you weren't around to clean it up.

Now Bandai and Sync Beatz are determined to make you feel that pain again with a new "Tamagotchi L.i.f.e." app for Android and iOS. It recreates the original heart-wrenching Tamagotchi experience with a few modern twists, and it's even free! This is an all-around win, as far as we're concerned. Now you can learn responsibility the hard way all over again.

The app is out now on Android and it's coming soon for iOS.
