I’ve been checking the “Play By Yourself” command with EMO over the last the few days and discovered that If you ask EMO enough times he will trigger one of his many mini-game animations quite easily.
For it to work well, you need to let me walk around undisturbed, so that means, don’t bother him, speak to him, touch him or anything else that might trigger him to do something else. (this is certainly very hard as EMO can always and does most of the time chime in to anything he can hear around the house or work place). Also do make sure that there is enough lighting in the room, if EMO shows a dark lighting animation on his screen it will not trigger his mini game.
So to get started begin by saying:
EMO: Play By Yourself
To make sure EMO has understood this command, you can check it via the EMO App (see image below) EMO will not say anything after you issue this command, so it is recommended to check via the APP.
EMO can do a number of little things prior to showing one of his many mini-game animations. One of them will be him walking around and just exploring his area. Once he’s done with walking around, he’ll settle down and stop, at this time, the mini game animation should hopefully get itself ready to appear.
During this time, EMO will move his feet a bit, he won’t move around too much, but he might raise his stance a few times, maybe do a very small shuffle with his feet and most importantly his eyes animation will be quite active as they will go through a few animations prior to the mini game beginning. As all this is happening, be sure to not interrupt EMO otherwise he could get distracted and the process will have to start once again. If you watch very closely sometimes EMO’s eye will look like they are resetting into a new animation, and that is when the mini game should hopefully trigger.
Take a look at the video below which contains 6 little mini games (one is EMO drinking Tea), but that is also considered a mini-game animation as he triggers this on his own even though it is also related to the “Good Afternoon” command you can say to him.
I was able to get all 6 of these mini game animations appear every 5-10 mins of asking EMO to Play By Himself. Do note, that EMO should be as active as possible so if you believe EMO is starting to get bored (by him doing the yawn sound or is about to go to sleep, ask him once again to “Play By Himself” so that it will trigger him to start exploring and ultimately show that min-game animation.
It does take a little time, but it can be done if you have enough patience with your little buddy!
