    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.

  2. Guest,


    Over the next few days there may be some slight changes to VPL. If you see something going on don't be alarmed we most likely know about it! If you have any troubles please contact Evolution.

    Happy Holidays

    Amazing, I saw your splash page and it looks amazing. The art looks very nice and glossy. I am looking forward to seeing some news about features soon, good luck!

    Nice pet previews: do you know how many pets you guys will have? Oh, and will you guys have any RPG features as well, or anything special?

    Those are currently the pets that Tarka will start with, but there's plenty more planned for the future, as well as a lot of features I think many people would enjoy. :)

    That's good. Will you be posting in-game screenshots as well? Also, any set release date, or is that not announced yet?

    There will be screen shots of game features as they are developed, yes. A solid release date has not been established yet, but it will be announced as soon as we have one.

    The pets look cute and the splash page art is very very sweet. It looks almost like a young child's painting, but with a professional edge.

    Is that yellow background final? Its wicked distracting to my eye since it is so bright. Maybe desaturate it a little if you want a warm sunny color, something closer to butter?

    There's a few little things that we'll be adding to make the background a bit less bland. x3

    Yup, time for Tarka's very first contest! :)

    The forums are very slow so we decided to open this one up. I hope that we'll have at least a few entries.

    The contest will remain open until September 24th.

    And, as the title states, it's a custom making contest!

    Head over to the Pet .PSDs board (http://forestoftarka.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=petcustom&action=display&thread=7&page=1) (Registration is required to view the boards), download a pet PSD, and color it. Simple, right?

    Please remember edits are not permitted.

    First place will win a picture of their coloration by me, and also a copy of their pet if/when they join Tarka in the future!

    That's pretty much it. Have fun!

    User profiles are in the final stages~ Right now they are still being tweaked, but we will be giving them a more stream-lined feel before they are complete.

    Preview

    All user information will be able to be viewed from this page, as well as users being able to comment and interact with other users simply from their profiles.

    We also have planned to allow users to modify the look and feel of their page with CSS editing.
