The perfect blend of storytelling and avatar design
If you are looking for a well made, and easy to use, animation app, this is it. Gacha life was originally made for the app store, but there is a demo version available for Windows. Gacha Life is great for animated storytelling, avatar customization, and interacting with other players.
Gacha Life: the scratch equivalent for animation
This program is one of the best for anybody interested in learning how animation works or wants to get into animation.
Gacha Life uses in-game currency and energy. Your avatar requires energy to interact with NPCs and you use in-game currency to buy one of 100 gift items. If you run out of stamina, there’s a variety of things you can do. There are minigames which earn you in game currency, and they don't use stamina.
While waiting on your energy to recharge, you can also do things in studio mode and life mode. Studio mode allows you to create different scenes, complete with poses, backgrounds, and on screen texts. Life mode allows you to explore different parts of a virtual town and interact with other players, as well as NPCs.
This program is one for anybody interested in learning how animation works, or wants to get into animation. If someone was to claim that Gacha Life is like Scratch except that one works with animation, and the other is for programming that wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. Both use easy to understand interfaces, that are kid friendly.
Where can you run this program?
The full version of this game is available on the Apple and Android app store. A demo version of the software is also available on PC.
Is there a better alternative?
Gacha Life offers avatar customization and the ability for you to be an animator. Unfortunately, there aren't other games that offer both. There are countless games online that offer one or the other, but not a whole lot that offers both.
This game is a great kid friendly game that is chock full of minigames. Additionally, it also has a variety of play modes, which makes the game feel like two or three different games in one.

Yes. If you like animation or want to get into animation, this would be a good one for you to check out.
