Inbox Creature

A super cute virtual pet, delivered right to your inbox.

Inbox Creature is a virtual pet for email, made using click automations at AWeber. Sign up and you'll get the little blob delivered to your inbox with a choice to feed it one of two things. Based on that choice, your creature will change and grow. There are currently 3 days worth of choices, but I'll be adding more if people like it!

@jeff_osborn thanks so much for checking it out. I only built in 3 days worth of choices so far (4 total emails) and each choice is a pretty big evolution from the previous day, but I was thinking of adding much smaller daily changes after you reach the final form on day 4 if people like it. As you play with it, let me know if you dig it and would want more content.

@clickpop Cool -- I'll let you know! Would be really cool to have it evolve further. A lot of work though. Maybe an opportunity to apply AI and get a buzzword boost for your project?

I really enjoyed engaging with this product. I loved seeing AWeber's automation and personalization capabilities leveraged for something fun and entertaining.

Pros:

Creative and fun. Very entertaining.

Cons:

Would love to continue seeing my creature improve or change. Maybe hairstyles or outfits or something.

@meineleserei I definitely spent way more time than I'm proud of nurturing a Tamagotchi back in the day. If you end up playing with this at all, I'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks for even taking a look!
