    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.

    I changed my life a few years ago. I was in a wreck, but I managed to turn my life around for the better. Now, I'm happy as can be without getting into any trouble. So, I feel that my life is a lot better than it was years ago.

    So, have you ever turned your life around for the better?

    Hm, well I've never done anything that is too bad, but a few years ago I was slacking off in my classes because I thought it would make me 'cooler.' Therefore I was basically failing. Then I decided it would probably be better to actually turn it around, since it's what my future depended on.

    I know, it's sort of a sad excuse, but I haven't had to many experiences in the past few years! xD

    I went to art college.

    Seriously. I was doubting my decision in sophomore/junior year (and I still wonder if spending all that money was necessary), but because of it I've learned to just pick one direction and go with it, even if I'm not the best at what I do. It's really, REALLY boosted my confidence in myself and my ability to make a living doing what I love. Plus, after four years I'm finally making good friends!

    That's because I went back and edited this thread and re-wrote it. So, have you ever changed your life around for the better or anything? I also like how I haven't had a relapse for my Bipolar in about two years come April. I feel great and I'm proud I've remained healthy for so long.

    Yes, when I finally quit my crappy Home Depot job. It changed everything, and I met the coolest girl and it's like we live in a fairy tale. :D

    @uglytrolls

    I went through that a few years back. Sounds similar, he didn't like my friends, so I slowly stopped seeing them until he was the only person I was ever with. We lived together so he was able to keep me from doing much at all. He even told me how long he wanted my hair (first thing I did after it ended was cut all my hair off XD ). There were some sexual abuse type issues as well, and the always fun emotional abuse and neglect. Good times.

    I always prided myself on being independent and strong but you just never know how you'll react to it until it happens. It really sneaked up on me a little bit at a time, I didn't even realize what was happening. :/

    I'm glad to hear that bro. How long did you work at Home Depot before you decided to quit? Women are such fun. I don't know where I'd be today if it wasn't for my fiance fixing and healing my heart from my previous relationships.

    I worked there for 3 and a half years. I was making really good money too, around $1700 a month but it just wasn't worth it. It was about the most stressful thing I've ever been thru. But things have flip flopped! Turn abouts is fair play!

    I'm glad your fiance supports and helps you. Cool man!
