PetRave 'Petey' Goes Alpha
10:39 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Monkey Byte's community site MyMonkey has announced that an Alpha version of 'Petey,' their first PetRave virtual pet, is available for download if you are a registered member. Alpha of course means still in early development, so you should expect some instability and problems with this version -- it is just intended to give those intererested a glimpse of what is to come. Here are details from the Monkey Byte newsletter:

Monkey Byte Development announces the Alpha Release of PetRave™ : Petey.

This new game alpha is designed to provide a fun and interactive virtual
friend that anyone can train, feed, love, punish, and provide for.
PetRave™ : Petey allows users to have their virtual pet ever-present on
their desktop for instant interaction or long-term care taking. A robust
artificial intelligence has been woven together with fun animations to
bring the your pet to life.
Visit the MyMonkey site and register if you wish to preview this product in Alpha form.

In related news, Monkey Byte has posted their photo gallery from last month's Macworld Expo San Francisco. If you couldn't attend this event or just missed the Monkey Byte booth, this collection of photos seems worth viewing. Jump to the Monkey Byte web site for more details.
