Would you like to become a member of the largest and most successful virtual pets & sim games community on the internet today? We've been opened since 2011 and since then, we've been providing developers, artists, players and writers with the most relevant, up to date, quality and in depth content covering the entire online games community. So, if you just like virtual pet sites, we have you covered. But, if you prefer sim games, well we're here for you as well. However, if you're a new game developer and you're looking to show off your game to all of our members, then we'd love to hear all about your game in our sneak peeks forum. Just because our name is Virtual pet list doesn't mean pet games is the only thing we talk about. Our community talks about technology, making money, making art, writing and a lot more. So, please don't be afraid to say hello to everyone here because you never know what type of friends you'll make on our community. We strive to be friendly and offer positive discussions. We're very passionate, caring and hard working members of these niche, so if you hear about a new pet game from your friend, then it's highly likely that your friend found that game on our forum. If you want to learn anything about developing your own online game, then just go through our guides forum. You'll notice that whatever you're seeking on other developer's communities has more than likely already been talked about, researched and has already been put into good use by highly skilled developers.

  7. You always try to upload those off-site with image hosting sites:
  8. Hi Ricky,
    Thanks for applying. Everyone is welcome. We will be unlocking the site for play hopefully in a few weeks.
    Thanks again,
  9. I am registered now :) I am Selendra on this game :)
  10. thank you, I look forward to hearing everyone's feedback. I am now working on tuning the earning and burning and unlocking of items, dino energy, etc.
  11. Love the art work. Could you give a little information on what the site is, or what it is about? Is it a clickable game, pet game, or? Is there a plot? What can you do in the game? Any more info you could give would be great.
  12. thanks. glad you like the art.
    It is a web browser based game. Running in flash. Fully interactive with mouse gestures. We are using Drupal 7 for our site. Right now in Phase 1 we have focused on hatching and raising the dinosaurs. We also built a community around the game. So players can have friends, send gifts, vote on each others dinosaurs. There is also a full functional avatar editor and virtual room for each player.
    You earn by caring for the dinosaur, and participating in the community in order to buy cool things to upgrade your terrarium and buy new dinosaur eggs to hatch.
    I am working on a story line now that revolves around players with pet dinosaurs. Kinda like Jurassic Park meets Pokemon.
    Dinosaurs have full FSM (finite state machine) to control behaviors and allow them to interact with player and things that happen to them.
    Our goal is to create very interactive experience, and then build upon that to allow players to train and compete with one another, go on cool adventures, breed their own dinosaurs, etc.
    Its been over two and a half years of development, with no outside funding. Pushing everyday to make things happen. I was thinking of starting a blog. "How to make a 6 month game in 3 years" "P
  13. Haha, very interesting concept. Would've never guessed it would be flashed based. Looking forward to checking it out. You said it would be out in a few weeks?
  14. Thanks I joined! Looking forward to it, looks cute!
  15. we plan out starting our beta testing in a few weeks. I hope to be out by September. Need the time to tune and tweak the game play.
    thanks for joining. I'm sure we will need all the feedback we can get to make sure its fun
  16. @Woobaa
    This looks positively adorable!
    I signed up as Wrath for Beta-testing-at least I think I did, I just signed up with the link you gave us in your first post there so I hope I did, looks like my ID will be 102.
  17. thank you. I'm glad you like the look. Hopefully I can now make sure its fun to play :)
