    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 feel like I'm looking at a completely new pet when I look at that new Murfin. I was so use to how the old one looked for YEARS. Hopefully they'll update all their pets though to look better like this.
    But again I'm use to all there current looks, I'm sure most will look like brand new pets to me xD

    That always happens when someone's favorite pet gets revamped and they don't like it. But half of the time when they pop up, those players stick around even though they say they're quitting. @ian has told me that a few times over the years.

    Hah yeah. I mean I absolutely HATE the revamped Azul, which was my favorite pet, but I learned to ignore it

    I realize this Murfin...well, doesn't look at all like the old one, but I will never understand how users were happy with just a generic mouse x_X

    New art should be in every Mara's users mind as of now, because the site is going to be undergoing a lot of revamps. Signs of good things to come. I guess once the knock out all these revamps, Ian can go focusing on new features/updating features, I guess? At least that's what I think. @Jammybee

    That one I'm really happy to hear about because let's face it, a new layout would do them well. So many sites are ahead of them in terms of good navigation, a good layout. A layout is one of the first things someone looks at it before they actually join up and play. The current layout is nice, for children-era, not so much for the teens that expect a good quality layout when they join up. I'm in the same boat as you.

    I honestly do think it'd be bad for them if they made a new layout. I agree that they NEED one, but if they did something as drastic as drop-down menus, I can see a LOT of people leaving. Unless they gave users the option of which layout to use, whiiich would be awesome

    Now all they need to do is hire new GAs v_v This art is tempting me to make Mara avatars again, since its sooo much easier to make good ones with nice-quality art
