Hatching Tie-In Game Is Tamagotchi-Inspired With A Horror Twist

It's free and short.


Developed in collaboration with IFC Midnight (distributor of horror movies like The Babadook and The Autopsy of Jane Doe), Hatching is a Tamagotchi-esque game--but with a horror twist. It's based on the Hatching movie, which was released in theaters on April 29 and can be streamed online as of May 17, and is developed by Airdorf.

You can get Hatching for free either through itchi.o or via the Apple store, if you want to play it on your iPhone.
