SHANGHAI, CHINA, September 20, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- From the makers of the award-winning Dr. Panda apps, 'My Doumi' introducers players to an all-new style of virtual pet gaming as they raise and nurture their adorable pet Doumi both in-game and in the real world via AR.
Players can do everything with Doumi from eating, bathing and sleeping, to playing a variety of entertaining mini-games, exploring a number of locations as their virtual pet evolves and alters shape over time. More than 100 outfits and items can be bought in exchange for virtual currency in the form of gems, which players can either purchase or earn in-game.

"With the power of ARKit 2, we've created the most seamless AR experience ever, letting kids enjoy interacting with their Doumi in ways that have never been seen before in other virtual pet games. Our hopes for the future will focus on the future of AR, incorporating new technologies such as voice and face recognition that will transform 'My Doumi' into a next generation pet game."
