Welcome to Virtual Pet List

We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advantage by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

Virtual Pet Directory Recent Reviews

  1. Rhaimu Mycena Cave
    5/5,

    One of the best pet sites ever!

    Pros: Lovely community Friendly staff that cares about users Pretty art Focus on character development and RP, but people who don't RP don't feel left out Challenging Fun and well thought events Interesting lore Custom pets

    Cons: No mention system on the forums, which makes it hard to keep track of your posts Confusing for many newbies (but the community is usually quick to answer any questions!) Rare left boots can be sold by unaware newbies and then they're gone forever. D:

    Summary: I've been active on Mycena for over a year now and I still enjoy it as much as ever. <3 It's definitely worth playing!

  2. Evergreen Mycena Cave
    4/5,

    A Creative, Cozy Community

    Pros: + Beautiful pet and items. + Friendly staff and members. + Interesting backstory. + Stable economy. + Emphasis on creativity, both in and out of events.

    Cons: - Intimidating economy for new members. - As the backstory continues, it may become overwhelming for new members to read to participate in canon RP. - Some missing basic forum features.

    Summary: A site like this requires some dedication. Simply logging on and doing the dailies isn't going to get you anywhere. If you want a site where you can collect pets with little effort, go to Chicken Smoothie. But if you're looking for a site where you can become part of a tight-knit, supportive community, if you are looking for a game where the economy remains stable, if you are willing to put forth the effort and participate, then this is the site for you. You will be rewarded with gorgeous pets for you to develop as characters, creative, open events, and people who will welcome you and...

  3. InekiLover Mycena Cave
    4/5,

    Decent but needs work

    Pros: Creative environment. Heavy on Role-play. Unique lore and site events. Custom art and Custom Breeding. Apparel for pets. Small but friendly community. Allows off site trading. Friendly staff. Shops restock per person. Monthly pets.

    Cons: A newbie may find it hard to make money. Cave In and other games are fun, but payout is low. Breeding is an event were custom pets are hand drawn not a click-able option like other breeding games. Breeding only results in 1-2 babies. (cont..)

    Summary: (cont..) The small community means that some newbies may find it hard to find people willing to roleplay. No friends list, suggestions board, or battle system. No option to trade gems or nuggets for custom credit. Custom pets are only obtainable with custom credit or real world currency. Bbcode is lacking. Lists, columns, and indentations do not work as well as colors and font size. Summary: Mycena is a roleplay oriented game. Mycena has beautifully drawn pets and site art. It also has a very unique lore one never seen before. Mycena challenges you to be creative and offers an encouraging...

  4. Lix Mycena Cave
    5/5,

    A Diamond in the Rough (ish)

    Pros: Unique events. Great economy. Outstanding art. In-depth storyline. Friendly, welcoming community. Very approachable staff.

    Cons: New members might find things a bit confusing at first.

    Summary: I think that, for a site that focuses on the community and roleplaying, Mycena Cave does it's job amazingly. The events often challenge your creativity but can be just as welcoming to those who don't feel very creative. The members and staff are all very friendly and, as someone who doesn’t roleplay (yet), I don't feel left out at all! With a lot of “coats” (or pets) to collect, I’m just as engrossed as the next member.

  5. Magpie Mycena Cave
    4/5,

    Inspiring!

    Pros: Creative events with in-game rewards, rich story, active mods, a very friendly and welcoming community, and excellent art. For a reasonable fee, artists will create wholly custom, one of a kind pets for players!

    Cons: The economy can be tough for a new player to break into. Items and pets are very expensive, but attainable over time.

    Summary: Mycena Cave is THE place to go for strong story and richly developed characters. In-game events and roleplay build up the canon storyline. New content is regularly added. The chat is active, the players are friendly, and the forums are steady but slow enough to follow even with a busy schedule.
