Yopparatchi (from the Japanese word ‘Yopparai’ meaning ‘drunk’) is a retro-inspired digital pet and drinking buddy equipped with an alcohol sensor that’s used to help feed your new friend. Take a drink, blow into the sensor, and if it detects alcohol, your Yopparatchi gets a drink, too!

We designed the Yoppa to look, feel, and sound like the digital pets we grew up with in the 90's. Animations are low frame rate, colors are bright and simple, and button presses are accompanied by dings, beeps, and hums.

Pressing its colorful buttons gives it a drink, but with a catch: it doesn’t like to drink alone. Take turns with friends, helping keep Yopparatchi tipsy and happy. But be careful! Just like you cleaned up your Tamagotchi’s digital defecation, you need to care for Yopparatchi. If it drinks too much you may have to clean up its pixel puke and nurse it back to sobriety. If you wait too long between drinks, Yopparatchi grabs a cup of coffee.

Yopparatchi was created for fun and personal education, and not to market booze to children. Therefore Yopparatchi won’t be sold or mass produced. It will, however, play a steady stream of classic 8-bit sounds from a tiny speaker, while you party the night away.
