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. Pepper-Head Happy Pet Story
    5/5,

    Fresh and Fun!

    Pros: Very polished art and gameplay Lots to do Great customization New features are spread out a bit FREE! (can buy currency but not necessary)

    Summary: I haven't been into a pet mobile game in quite some time, and I'm already addicted to Happy Pet Story! There's a lot to offer without feeling overwhelming, I enjoy the pacing of it. There always seems to be something new to save for, and the games have a little variety to keep them interesting! (Like fishing)

  2. Magpie Flight Rising
    5/5,

    Entertaining game, exceptional community.

    Pros: Beautiful art, clean site design, user friendly interface. Forums, marketplace, & auction house are easy to navigate. Battles are competitive; top Flights earn extra bonuses for the week of their dominance. Very strong market, especially for artists.

    Cons: The very large community may be daunting to some players. Servers experience some lag with each new registration window, and during major events, when traffic is high. Forum censorship is sometimes heavy-handed.

    Summary: Flight Rising is an absolutely beautiful game. The art is remarkable, and new apparel and genes are added with reasonable regularity. Flights are available to reflect any personality, aesthetic, and interest. Each month (except December) features a festival in honor of a particular Flight, with themed apparel, familiars, chests, and activities in the forums. Treasure is earned in a variety of ways: through adventuring in the coliseum and selling gathered items, breeding desirable dragons, bonding with familiars, or playing fairground games. The community is active, with raffles,...

  3. Rosie115 Mycena Cave
    3/5,

    An interesting take on the petsite experience

    Pros: +Strong encouragement towards writers +Several RP forums +Nice community +Cute pets +No dailies- so there's no penalties if you can't be on a day or two +Actively involved staff +Lots of time, effort, and talent being poured into this website

    Cons: Not many games -Games are all logic-based -Very hard for new members to get involved in the community -Minimal pet-and-user interaction -Having multiple pets is really hard to do -Complicated breeding system -Everything is expensive -No 'ping' system

    Summary: I'm not quite sure how I feel about this game! I adore the artstyle and lore, and the fact that it's a writing-based community really intrigues me. At the same time, the community is very hard to get involved with, especially for someone with social anxiety like me. So, having no community to interact with and no interaction with my pets other than writing bios and dressing them up, I generally end up logging on, playing Cave In until I max out my nuggets, and then trading them for currencies in games I am more involved with. Still, I do occasionally write and greatly enjoy doing so. The...

  4. cpvr Aywas
    5/5,

    Aywas is a great site

    Pros: Very friendly staff, helpful users and very unique

    Cons: The only con that I've noticed is that there hasn't been any updates on the recode.

    Summary: I remember when Aywas first opened. It was the only game to offer customized pets and a way to capture more virtual pets. Now you can capture and battle NPCs. There's no about it Aywas focuses a lot on engaging their entire user base with major events. Only time will tell, but I believe Aywas will continue to flourish.

  5. Hibou Leayph
    4/5,

    Leayph: A First Look Review

    Pros: - Battle Systems for both pets, and user avatars. - Jobs - Quests - Different Genes added on a regular basis - Crafting - Active admins - Monthly "events"

    Cons: -Weak Economy -Inflation

    Summary: The game is good, and fun. The Pro's speak for themselves, you've really got to try it out to get the full effect of the fun.The economy is very weak, because (I'm assuming) it's so new. The massive number of 1 stone shops doesn't help either. You make more money selling your goods to the pawn shop. I believe this is also due to the Job system. Merchants get exp when they sell items, what better way to sell then for the lowest price. That leaves someone in the scavenger field pawning off everything to get by. I don't know if the EXP output is the same, but it'f quite frustrating to earn...
