Where’s your tama-boy-chi?

BBN Tamagotchi

Breaking Boy News proudly presents the Tama-boy-chi.

Tama-boy-chi is your very own pocket-sized digital boy!

Your task is to give the boy everything he needs to grow up healthy: Food, play, exercise and more. If you don’t take care of your boy the right way, he will protest – and ultimately leave you! Are you up for the challenge?

Breaking Boy News has developed the Tama-boy-chi together with Japanese designers Akihiro Yokoi and Aki Maita, who created the original Tamagotchi, first released by Bandai in 1996. In that game, the user had to keep a pet alive.

“A boy can be much more demanding than a pet”, says Yuuki Watanabe, editor at Breaking Boy News.

“I’m sure the Tama-boy-chi will get a devoted following around the world”, he adds.

There are only 100 Tama-boy-chi – order yours here before they sell out.

Just one more shopping tip (not by me):

I’m happy to reveal that Breaking Boy News is on display in the new show at Eden Eden until January 2016. It’s not just any gallery – Complex gave it place 74 in its listing of the world’s 100 best art galleries. And the curator was one of four nominees for the Turner prize last year. I guess that’s what it takes to display my publications, which, as you might know, has been discussed before, but always with the organizers bailing out in the end.

The exhibition opened yesterday and Breaking Boy News was at the center of it – displayed in a neat vitrine as you can see on the pictures, attracting lots of interest from the visitors.

I’m very happy that Breaking Boy News, of all my publications, has entered the world of high art, since I always thought that it belonged there. BBN is extremely conceptual and follows a strict set of rules, as explained in the book about the project. The fact that it gained a huge following of teenage boys (the website had 650,000 views per months shortly before I discontinued the project) was a fun side effect.

Buy the Breaking Boy News bundle for 25 euro (~28.40 USD) here – it contains all three items in the vitrine. And they might just have become much more valuable!
