Take care of Princess Superstar on your desktop.

Description

The “Tamahoochie” was a desktop version of the typical “Tamagotchi” toy concept, except that you have to take care of a rather demanding Princess Superstar, the well-known female rapper from Brooklyn, NY. I made this application for her album, “Princess Superstar IS” which was released on January 29th, 2002. The game was included on every CD that was sold. The “Tamahoochie” contained an avatar of the princess that demanded several different things to make her satisfied.

Prototype

The “Tamahoochie” contained an avatar of the princess that demanded several different things to make her satisfied. These included gifts from KMart, Gucci, and FCUK. It also let you choose from food to feed the princess from Sizzler, Spago, and McDonalds. finally you can make the princess happy by either giving her “Love” or a “Slap” More slaps actually make her less spoiled if you are pampering her too much with products. Overall the goal is to make her happy and not run out of cash to please her.
