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.

    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....

    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.

    A Hidden Gem

    Pros: Thoughtful and Frequent Events Gorgeous Artwork Stable Economy Friendly Staff Welcoming Atmosphere Variety of Roleplay

    Cons: Forum System Advanced Settings still in Progress Slowly Expanding Means of Earning Currency

    Summary: When I originally joined Mycena Cave, I just stopped by once or twice a month. I quickly became impressed though by the weekly (sometimes daily) updates that the staff provide, and how calm and beautiful the site can be! Staff members are friendly and constantly ask for feedback to make the site better. Custom pets are available as well. It's just a great site in general and the people there are very kind and welcoming!

    Mycena Cave

    Pros: Beautiful art Customs Friendly staff & community Stable economy Roleplay (canon & otherwise), create characters Creative events Offsite trading Community based (currently)

    Cons: Community based (currently) Not enough interaction between player & pets

    Summary: - Mycena Cave is a small, friendly & open community. Though young (<2 years), staff works hard to implement new features, listen to the opinions of their members, and create events for the community to enjoy. - Customized pets are able to purchased via a currency called Custom Credit. CC can be sold between members which gives people the opportunity to earn a customized pet without having to pay out of your pocket. - Gems can be bought for real money or traded for nuggets. - A stable economy which is monitored and maintained by staff. - Creative community; roleplayers, artists and...

    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!
