    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.
