Game crashes constantly

UPDATE: After restarting my phone several times as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the app I decided to delete it from my iCloud then uninstall and reinstall. This of course wiped the game for me, I lost my daemon as well as my progress. I reinstalled the game and it seems to be working ok now, but I am nervous whenever I try to start it, thinking it’s only a matter of time before it crashes again. We’ll see.

As a side note I kept retaking the quiz to get an animal I wanted. It’s true, the chameleon is the most common one to get. I finally got what I wanted after many retakes.


Game keeps crashing when I try to open it. I downloaded the game yesterday and it worked fine. Today it won’t even load, I try to open it and it crashes :( I tried going to the support link so the developer could help me but there was no link for technical support. My five stars just went down to one. I am so sad, I loved this game.


I installed the game and took the quiz to see which Daemon I would get. Mine is a chameleon and it was my least fav out of the options but he won me over with his cute actions and the things he says to me.

I have always wanted a game like this, a focus on self care with a motivation to do so.

Great job and I am excited to see where this goes 😊

Needs a “select your own” option, but gets better.

Seriously. I get authenticity, but if I don’t like what I’m “assigned” (literally), I just won’t play. Let me know when you don’t force players to settle for whatever dumb animal you think they should have.

Aside from taking the test 20+ times, I’d also recommend a “select another name” option. I love my boy, but “Demades” just doesn’t seem to suit him, and I’ve seen other names I absolutely adored!

After getting going, I’m really quite enjoying the game. I like the fact you can cycle through activities to find something within your current scope, so you can consistently interact and enjoy the game. I will note that I now have many tasks open because I keep forgetting to restart and am a very active person. My watch isn’t really syncing with the app, where I get notifications but can’t see the whole text, or view current tasks (or mark them off, or accept new ones). But I expect these are in the works and will get there.

Must Have Perfection & Fun For Any Fan!!!

For a fan of the book for about two decades and the tv show - I have grown to love and adore this world and these characters and to have this fun little app to bring to life getting your own daemon and playing is really like a childhood fantasy come true, so in a way any shortfalls I can forgive because I know update are coming and they’re working on it.
But the game is amazing - I wasn’t sure about my daemon at first, a red Pine Martin named Machon (a male daemon for a male - but I kinda like it), but his personality and animations are adorable and I even think about him when I’m not playing. I love how it interacts with real life and integrates and hope it integrates even more in the future like meditation and things and more apps to link too, but for now it’s really cool.
Can’t wait to see what will happen after I unlock all the animations - will there be another update or more things to do with the daemon? I love just having a silly distraction throughout the day to play with that reminds me of my favorite world and makes me feel a part of it.
Suggestion - games to play with your daemon would be so awesome.
And I would be willing to pay for extras. Really. I love how much fun this already is and way blown away by its sophistication for a free app.
Fun and definitely recommend.
