A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

In 1996, Devolver Digital released Pocket Volvy: a virtual pet starring its beloved big-handed mascot.

But a fatal software error meant Volvy would not stop crapping, and would eventually die from the relentless build-up of his own stinking effluence.

At great expense, every Pocket Volvy was recalled and destroyed. But earlier this year, elite net surfers discovered the software hidden deep in the dark web—which has now been emulated here for your 'pleasure'.

This is the first time since 1996 that Pocket Volvy, long thought lost, has been playable. How long can you keep Volvy alive? Five minutes? An hour? Set the world record? Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Volvy! Thanks for saving the stock market 馃檹


Volvy when you release Silksong?


i killed volvy

Happy Birthday Volvy!!!


this game is almost completely devoid of any gameplay, lacks any goal or function, and has little to no user interaction.
10/10 has a little something for everyone 

happy birthday volvy!!!!!


I can't have a real pet, so the emulated Pocket Volvy brings me great joy.

Omg such a throwback! Love you Volvy.

Happy bday Volvy,

Hoping your day is as special as you are!

Ah, the wild and crazy things one could do with a giant hand…

I lost my Pocket Volvy back in 1996. :( I am happy to have another chance to take care of Volvy e-pet!


I remember when I got my first Volvy e-pet. I loved the guy, even if I had to clean its craps every 15 seconds. I went days upon days without food nor sleep only to dedicate my life to Volvy. 

When the police came to take him from me, I cried so hard I crapped myself, and I麓ve had to live with both the crap and the sadness since.

This new Volvy virtual e-pet allows me to complete a period of my life that was taken from me. It allows me to finally live all those beautiful moments that I was supposed to have with my best friend. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I love you volvy! when is your 3d platformer coming out

happy birthday volvy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
