    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.

    Reminds me of that thing they had at, I think it was a Haven Holiday, unless they've changed since I went there.

    Who are some of the richest players? In terms of icepoints they have, not exactly their names if you don't want to release them.

    Maybe a couple million in pure icepoints? maybe another couple mil worth in pets/items. That would be my estimate.

    Does the raffle take the points from tickets and add them directly to the jackpot, or does it also take a percentage? Do you plan on always starting with 1 million in the jackpot? I think it would be good, for the economy, to have the game be self-sustaining, in that it doesn't generate money but rather redistributes it.

    It's only the first raffle that starts with a bang of a million IcePoints. A small percentage of the ticket sales is sink holed, the rest goes to the prize pot.

    @cpvr When I was on there, the richest user was quite possibly Montreal, cause he had over 50million and got 15% interest rate in the bank, or something like that when you reached the 50million mark.

    Alternatively guessing, I would say either Nate, Speedie or Trade are up there in the Top 3 richest users.

    I don't like to name names publically, but the "few million" guesstimate is far too low. Once you get a feel for the site you will probably get a few for the richer players quickly. And it's morw like in the 10's of millions of iP, and sometimes a few hundreds of million in items range for maybe 5-8 players I would guess
