Peridot is launching globally May 9th!
I’m David, Creative Director and founding member of Peridot. As a long-time Niantic, I still reminisce about the Summer of 2016 and how magical that was. Was that the closest we ever got to world peace? Maybe. Perhaps though, we can capture some of that again, with Peridot.
Today I’m excited to deliver some good news: Peridot will be globally launching on May 9th! We’re kicking off pre-registrations on the App Store and Google Play today as well, so be sure to sign up now to be notified when Peridot is available for you.
Also as a thank you, those who pre-register and play within the first two weeks of launch will be able to collect a launch-exclusive party hat cosmetic for your Dots. 🎉 How cool is that?
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% 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.
No matter how you play, Peridot is a charming, comfy game that delivers all the joy of raising a pet, without the mess.
Pre-register here to be among the first to play Peridot, and don’t forget to follow us on social media to get all the latest updates!
