EyePet dev lead Nic Doucet’s told VG247 that EyePet is merely the “beginning” of a franchise, and that more games based on the IP will be released in the future.

“For us, it’s the beginning,” said the developer, speaking in a phone interview last week.

“We’re creating a franchise. We’re hoping to really rally a lot of support and have a big success.

“The intention is to build something bigger than a single game.”

The first EyePet game, which releases on October 23, features a solitary monkey pet thing which responds to your movements via the PlayStation Eye.

Doucet was answering reader questions in a Q&A sessions we’ll publish in the next few days.

    Released on the 23rd of this month? I thought it was coming in November. That’s good news though, I might buy it with my new PS3 than.

    I’m thinking PSP content where you can take your pet along with you.

    Then for the older kids, you can battle them with other users, similar to invizimals/pokemon/Yu-gi-oh/bakugan or whatever the devil the kids are into….turn based fights

    Dynamic themes for the PS3

    and add on content ala SIMS.

    And use your animal as a LBP character…or use your sackboy as an Eyepet…or as your Home Avatar
