Niantic, the company that made Pokémon Go, is about to put out its next big game. The developer said that the virtual pet game Peridot, which was first announced last year, will be available on both iOS and Android on May 9th. It will be released everywhere.
Last summer, I got to try out an early version of Peridot. It was a cute mix of the augmented reality parts of Pokémon Go and a pet sim like Tamagotchi. David Hollin, the creative director of Peridot, explained more about how the game will work when it comes out:
Our team has been hard at work making Peridots real. They are immersive, amazing magical creatures that eat, sleep, play with toys, explore their environment, get bored, develop unique personalities, and are always in need of a loving adopter like you.
Every Peridot is 100 percent genetically unique, too. They inherit a mix of genes from their parents that can make them blue, black, metallic, fuzzy, goat-horned, big-eared, bushy-tailed and an infinite number of other “looks.”
Our team has marked a handful of these that we’ve identified as “Archetypes” (such as “Unicorn”, “Clownfish”, etc.) But if this excites you, it will be your responsibility as a Keeper to work with other Keepers to cross-Hatch your Dots and discover all the different combinations that are possible, including ones beyond all of our imaginations.
When it comes to the day-to-day however, remember that it’s every Keeper’s job first and foremost to ensure their Dots are happy, healthy, and loved.
Feed your baby Dot, play with it and take it on adventures–with enough care and effort it will grow into a teenager and then an adult that can Hatch a new generation of Dots! It’s a circle of life in a way, except you can keep track of all your Dots and never have to say goodbye.

Since Ingress, Niantic hasn’t made a game without a licence until Peridot. Since Pokémon Go was such a big hit, the company has been trying to make other popular brands like Pikmin Bloom, NBA All World, and the now-closed Harry Potter: Wizards Unite do as well.
But so far, none of these follow-ups have been as successful as Pokémon Go. Last year, Niantic laid off 8% of its staff and scrapped four projects that were in the works.
That makes it hard for Peridot when it comes out in the spring. Starting today, people who want to play can pre-register for the game on both Google Play and the App Store.
