Shimeji are these little mascots that fool around on your desktop, and of course they're interactive! See Wallis perform magic, climb and fly, also act insane and cute at the same time! Apparently it only works on PC. Sorry macs.

And after months of not really messing around with my half-done Wallis Shimeji, I finally FINISHED IT YEAH.

Is Wallis making your desktop feel lonely? Then download his brother Harold, over here! [link]

Instructions for use
(copied and slightly edited from [link] which has great instructions. Hope you dont mine me copy-pasting it!)

1. Click download link on the side and wait for it to download
2. Double click the downloaded .rar file and a new window should pop up with a 'Sherlock' folder. If that doesn't happen, you need an extractor like winrar
3. There should be a button saying something like 'extract to'. Click it, and specify an easy to remember location. This should extract the whole folder to this location
4. Go to the extracted folder and double click the .exe to get started.
5. To remove, delete the folder
6. To edit the images go to the 'img' file and you will find all the .pngs. Edit these to your liking =]

--

Right clicking the icon at the bottom of the screen brings up a menu in japanese.
The options are:
1. Create a new Wallis
2. Have the Wallis come over to your mouse
3. Delete all Wallis' but one
4. Return any IE screens Wallis may have thrown off
5. Exit

--

Common problems:
Aaaaaaah where do I download?
Over there --> (way over to the right, there is a download button up near "add to your favorites")

When I clicked the .exe a box came up in japanese and nothing happened! What went wrong?
Make sure you extract the whole folder, not just the .exe

[Nothing/something unexpected] happens when I open the downloaded file! What do I do?
You need an extractor like winRAR (or some free one.)

I'm downloading Winrar right now just so I can have Harold and Wallis on my screen. After that I hope Hobo and Assistant shimejis come out.

AHAHA I just downloaded them both, and, after I finished throwing them around for a while, Gloom decided he'd sit in his box. Then, Wallis walked over to him and sat down next to him and started looking in his mirror. XD It seem so in character. Even more so, because as I was typing that Gloom walked away. XD Oh god, now Wallis has duplicated himself and both Wallis are sitting on either side of Gloom. Aha, they're chasing him! This actually incredibly hilarious.

I tried to make one, but there is a black box around them when they walk to the right. but when they walk to the left, it's transparent. when i saved the files, i made it transparent. Is it supposed to be like that?

No, I have no idea what could be causing that. I'd suggest maybe looking up glitches on google or something?
