FIEND: A Tamagotchi-Like Pet That's Addicted to Discovering Music

What's up guys?

I've been hard at work over the past few months creating FIEND: Addictive Music Discovery ( which I submitted to the app store last Wednesday )!

FIEND is a tamagotchi-like digital-pet that's addicted to discovering music; he craves music and without it he'll die!

Users feed FIEND by 'DOPEing' or 'NOPEing' 15 second song snippets; DOPE tracks can be synced to a spotify playlist ( I plan to offer Apple Music if / when they release an API ).

I'm super excited for the release -- I've made a bunch of things before, but this is by far the most polished app I've ever made. I put a lot of time into making everything as simple / fluid as possible and I can't wait to see how people like it!

I've attached a few screenshots of the game -- let me know what you think!

You can try a quick demo and sign up for a launch email on the landing page: http://FIEND.fm

Thanks a lot,

This looks interesting, but is there any point to this beyond Tindering 15 second music clips? Wheres the gameplay component? Social interaction?
