    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 remember a long time ago I was going to open a pixel pet breeding site. Pixel artwork was big back then. Now it seems like that's starting to fade in popularity. I love pixel artwork, and always will. How does everyone feel about pixel artwork?

    KITTY SUSHI!!!!!

    I personally love it :3 The ability to put so much detail into something so small is beautiful <3 Or even just have things be simplistic (I mean, look at my icon... so simple yet so cute!)

    I'm still thinking about later on in the future revamping my pixel artwork and opening up that pixel site I wanted to originally do. After Fabelz gets stable though. :p

    Pixel art? Love it. xD;
    But I think I'm downright terrible at it actually.

    This is the last pixel thing I did for a buddy. [​IMG]

    I'm doing the pixel art of houndoom right now. xD

    Pixel arts are so adorable! This will be my first one I have done from the scratch once the houndoom is done.

    These are actually items I'm going to use on a site my friend and I are making! Pixels seemed to be fading from the spotlight, so we thought it'd be fun to try utilizing them. There's a certain beauty to great pixel work, I think.

    Also I HIGHLY recommend everybody check this site out, because the work is stunning, and is one of my biggest inspirations for my site <:

    Pixel art can hardly go wrong and can tend to be amazing I think. If you are in for some top sights search pixeljoint on google. It's not so popular as other digital art because it's hard to master on a high enough level to use pixel art to make projects successful. If pixel art is used for hobbyist projects you are most likely to see lots of other mediums as well.

    I make pixels too. Plant dino .gif

    Edit: You have got to see the link given on the last pages last post.

    Pixel art will probably stay popular with games. Specially on hand held consoles. You see some indie pixel games on the net quite often too. One thing for sure is that it won't die out soon.

    I adore pixel art within games, it's something I love seeing,, and I just don't feel the same way about games without them. Most of the time.

    Also, @CometTheMicroraptor
    That was incredibly gorgeous. I was pretty dumbfounded for a moment.
