Nokia WidSets Pets Mobile Game Twists Idea of Virtual Pets

widsets pets.jpgNokia has unveiled a new mobile and online game using its WidSets application. PocketGamer reports that WidSets Pets is both a mobile game and a Facebook application.

But that’s not the interesting part of this latest virtual pet game. No, the interesting part is where users upload pictures of themselves so they become the virtual pets. Once the user has turned himself into a pet, he can care for the virtual critter alone or share his well-being with friends via mobile or on a PC through the Facebook version of the game.

Mobile friends need a Nokia phone with the WidSets app downloaded, something that’s not needed to play the game on Facebook.
