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. 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...

  2. 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.

    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...

    3/5,

    Roleplay Oriented and Demanding to Progress

    Pros: - Friendly staff and community. - Events for all interests. - Offsite Trading - Dedicated Art Style - Monthly Colorations - Breeding results in unique customs. - Rich Story - Supports polyamory between pets.

    Cons: - Expensive ($) - Cash ($) is preferred in trading. - Customs are minimum $40. - Games give little payout. - Only 2 finished games, 2 in testing, and 1 random. - Puzzle games only. - Limited Breedings - Requires dedication to acquire wealth.

    Summary: I'm going to go over the cons here because the pros are pretty clear. Expensive ($) - A limited monthly pet is $10, with both limited items being $3 each. It costs gems, which is USD or earned by buying with basic currency. With that said, you will have to cap out on the games for over half a month in order to afford everything (46,800N=16GEM). Customs/$ Prefered - Customs are $40, going up depending on edits and base. You can buy custom credit for yourself or other users, making USD the most sought after currency. Games - give little payout per game (100-) and are all puzzle based....

    3/5,

    Not Recommended for Newbies

    Pros: Cute pets Nice Lore Friendly Staff/Members Focus on Roleplay (pro for some) Offsite Trading Both All Ages and T+

    Cons: New Players Left Out. Some aspects incomplete (e.g. guides, games, advanced forum features) Expensive Items (but robust economy) Focus on Roleplay (con for some)

    Summary: When I joined, newbies were completely banned from 2/3 current site events. The third (a choose your own adventure writing contest) required participants to be familiar with the site lore and canon, of which there are many pages. People are friendly, but don't expect to move beyond the freebie pet for a few months unless you spend $10+ on premium currency or have a LOT of savings on another site to trade for. Only recommended if you love the art/lore enough to put up with the grind, or if you have some friends already onsite that can give you a helping hand.
