    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange 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.

    So, this update is about 12 days late... For a reason! I'm currently sunbathing in sunny Florida and checking out the Disney parks. I don't have access to my PC (Where I happen to save all my DN related files) or image editing programs. So I have limited resources for this month's update. Expect more in about two week's time.

    Until then, an update on the coding front. Icy, Dragon's Nest's programmer assures me that the backend of the site is mostly done, and that we can go into testing in about 6 weeks time. I'll probably begin closed testing during early June (So we have stuff for the selected participants to do), so eventhough he hopes 6 weeks should do it, I still want to invite people to a nice game.

    Also, we have a news page! Simply go to http://www.fantasysim.net/news.php to keep afloat of all the latest happenings inside the nest, and to see our planned features.

    And to top it all off, enjoy two more previews of marvelous dragons... Is that even a dragon? But yes - We won't be limiting ourselves to wings and scales, so even if you are indifferent about dragons, we have other creatures just waiting to be hatched!

    Also, for those of you who don't know, we released a very early preview of the site at VPC and other Virtual Petsite forums!

    (This is Becca speaking, I just reposted it.)​

    Thank you.
    That'll probably be coming in the next preview, yes.


    Thanks!

    That's good to hear - is there a set release date by any chance or not yet?

    We'll be aiming for release by June 1st. That will be our closed beta period. Users who sign up and get accepted during closed beta will also get a limited edition dragon adoptable.

    We don't have screenshots for our features yet, but as Icy has said, they will more than likely make an appearance in the next preview. We will be having games, contests and events on the site, as well as allowing guests to adopt and later transfer that adoptable to their account using a unique code. :3 We will also be having an exploration feature where users can find dragons and other items, but we will show everyone in due time!

    Yeah, I didn't update it because I'm lazy, lol.
    We've got a huge chunk of features done, along with art.
    We'll post a preview soon, and I'll get to updating the news tomorrow.
    Sorry about that. :)

    We're all lazy toads, haha. We have shops and games, so I'm happy. I believe forums are being worked on, @Icy keeps getting on my back about the layout for forums (we'll be having on-site forums but with the navbar ontop so there's lots of rooom), but he has got a lot of the site coded already. Icy said we have about 10 or so things we need adding until we have the site ready to be tested, but we've already thought of a list of people to test the site. In the next preview, I believe we'll also be opening applications for Closed Beta.

    So far we also have some art, with 14 dragons (4 stages each, too), some items, a big npc dragon, and I'll be working on a neat world map. It's been a hectic two months but we're getting there. With both Icy, @Elz and I covering most aspects of what needs to be done for the site, we have some money left to advertise. We will be building a community based game with monthly events planned for 2012. 2011 will be based around testing, and getting the word out that we're open.

    Originally posted this on Dragon Nest. Yeah. We're gonna have a slight change of name, but it's cool 'cause the URL for the site will be dragon-nest.org. It doesn't flow as well as Dragon's Nest but it was our only option. :3

    @osiem - It wouldn't have been possible without you. The sketches and the conch dragon, and just everything you've done for us so far is amazing. The sketches just keep getting better and better. :3

    We're currently in beta testing, we've been busy fixing up bugs and whatnot, my apologies! I'll mention it to Icy and Becca about getting another preview sometime soon. :)
