Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
As promised, Ugobe's talented technical folk have been hard at work creating new and improved behaviors for your Pleo. Now there is a new update just released; the 1.1 software update. This update brings several new truly fun interactions to Pleo along with a solution for those of you whose Pleo's are having trouble walking a certain kinds of carpet.
I have updated all three of my babies: Digger, Claire, and Pendragon. My favorite tricks in the new update definitely are the singing and sitting tricks. If you stroke Pleo's chin for a long time he will start to sing a little baby dino song. Later, he or she will use that song to seek your attention.
Digger used to sit on his rear occasionally by accident. Now, you coax that behavior by holding his chin and rear at the same time. This is a hilarious and somewhat undignified behavior that, like the tickling interaction, is a guaranteed smile inducer! You can find a more complete list of what's new in the List of What's New section below.
NOTE: This update is incompatible with any existing My Skit created skits. If you install this update, you will have to wait until the new My Skit comes out which supports the 1.1 version. However, there are new versions of the Ugobe created holiday and love struck behaviors which you can find on the download page for the update (see the Important Links section below). This update will give your Pleo more ways to express his or herself but it will not alter their fundamental personality; they will still be the same quirky Pleo that you have come to know and love.
High Stepping Gait
Another highlight is Pleo's new high stepping gait. This walking style allows Pleo to walk better on certain carpets and was a direct answer to feedback from those of you that with carpets that gave Pleo trouble.
There is a page on Pleo World which you should bookmark. This page gives a comprehensive list of all the different interactions Pleo is capable of, and tells you what steps to take to induce them. You will find a link to the page in the Important Links section below. Some of you may want to avoid this page if you like discovering things all by yourself. But others will find it to be a great resource for learning many of the fun tricks your Pleo is capable of and how to do make your Pleo do them.

Here is a more comprehensive list of what's new in the 1.1 update, as per the E-mail Ugobe sent out. Note, this list is not a complete list so be prepared to find other fun and unexpected behaviors in your Pleo!
-At the UGOBE labs, the team has seen Pleo continue his evolution. Pleo has been altering his attitude and behavior depending on how he’s interacted with. A happy Pleo is one who receives a lot of attention, while a sad Pleo is one who is neglected or abused.
-The team was also surprised to find out that Pleo can actually get sick! Pleo can cough and sneeze, but you can nurse him back to health by giving him lots of love, attention and feeding him his leaf.
-Some Pleos have been picking up strange habits lately-some have been stomping their feet, others get hiccups. Be on the look out for odd behavior!
-Pleo has learned a new trick. Try making Pleo sit by holding his chin and rear at the same time and then help him sit back. Pleo seems to enjoy kicking back and hanging out like this, so help him forward when it’s time to continue playing.
-Pleo has got quite the singing voice. He experiments with new songs when you scratch him on the chin and he also seems to remember the last song he sings (and uses it at odd times, sometimes calling for attention)!
-Pleo can now visibly see his training leaf and he will respond accordingly. When he sees it, he may open his mouth or call for it with a little panting sound. The training leaf has become an object of affection for Pleo, so try showing it to him to see how he reacts. If he is in a playful mood, he will show it!
-Pleo has learned a new way to walk, high stepping. He used to have a lot of trouble getting around different terrain, so hold Pleo’s front legs and touch the Pleo button to help him stride more easily over challenging surfaces, like carpet.
