What is Shimeji App - Desktop Pet?

Desktop Pet is a desktop mascot shimeji app. In the client software, a lot of cute virtual avatars are integrated, and you can summon them to your desktop with one click. Every avatar can freely walk, run, climb on the desktop, and even self-clone itself into more partners.

 If you are a streamer, you can also connect your twitch account and randomly generate desktop pets for your active audience, making your audience more willing to send chats and expanding your stream influence.

Is DPET a shimeji browser extension alternative game?

Yes, but not only that. After using shimeji browser extension for more than 200 hours, I suddenly got creative inspiration. Integrate excellent shimejis together and let more users know the charm of this game. So I decided to create shimeji app for pc or mac, and improve some of the shortcomings of shimeji app:1. Easy to install and use, no need to browser extension
2. Low CPU consumption, support MacOS
3. Support to summon various types of pets
4. Bring DPET to the livestream so that every viewer can create their own shimeji avatar
5. Create a friendly art community where everyone can share their creations

How to use it?

As so far, all our features and virtual pet resources are free. You only need to click the summon button in the client software to start the pet party.

  • Entertainment mode: you can freely control your pets on the desktop, use the right mouse button to control them to do various interesting actions, and play with your pets when you are idle;
  • Stream mode:turn on the stream mode in the software, apply DPET to the live broadcast, we will regularly generate virtual pets for your active viewers, so that your viewers are more willing to chat in your channel.

How to get a desktop pet during live broadcast?

  1. First, you need to complete the twitch account authorization in the settings interface;- Then, turn on the live mode switch;
  2. After that, it will help you detect chat messages from your live channel and generate virtual pets randomly for your viewers;
  3. Finally, add a game capture to your streaming software and capture the window for DPET.

Mano faz um sem a steam quem não tiver espaço para baixar steam.porra vai tomar no meio do teu cu

Good tool~makes me more relaxed for working

nice tool, referred by bros, still trying...

I finally found a shimeji program that works on a mac, I really like him and wish there are more pet options. 10/10 recommend.

Finally, I found a flat replacement of Shimeji. As a regular user of Shimeji, I also think it is more attractive for me


very useful! i like it
