    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 got the same email. Given that I'm not interested in Foopets, I wouldn't pay.
    But I bet a lot of people would. They have millions of players. I bet it's a good move - like Webkinz.

    I am a member there, both free and subscribed, if you want to see what not to do to your customer base, make a one month account there and read what is going on with the people before they are being kicked out on the 26th, they could have handled this a better way then saying to all the members who did help the site but didn't subscribe" thanks for the dough, now buh- bye". I lose 3 accounts to freezing on the 26th, and once my sub ends on my main, I am not renewing

    Not a cool move, in my opinion. They could at least do like, paid gets more bonus and whatnot like most places do. Making it paid only is.. well, it's going to close it off to a lot of people because there are many folks out there that just can't afford the extra however much for something that is not needed. Yeah, there are going to be the ones that can and will.. but will it be better for their community, and the site overall? I don't think it will and it will mostly just benefit their pockets. That's just my opinion though.

    I don't like it at all.I think they shouldn't have done that.They should have at LEAST put the link where to subscribe.I think it's really rude of Foopets to do that.I hope they get it all fixed.=)

    Foopets lost my respect when they pounded my Bengal kittens after only a week's vacation I had.

    I'm just bumping this to ask:

    What has become of foopets since this move? Has their site grown or has the site gone down hill? Has the growing smart phone market made them revilement?

    I can't even find where it says it is a subscription only site. It says its designed for children, then in the T&C it say it will need info and take payment for the "subscription" you have chosen, but until there it seems free? Have I missed something?

    I said/meant before you get to that point, the first it mentions it is when it's telling you in T&C (I don't see it before this). It has all the "create your pet" without mentioning it's subscription only. If it's designed for children, it would be helpful to let people know that it is subscription only on the homepage or something. Rather than letting the kid think they're creating a pet to play with then hasseling the parents

    I have to agree with you there I would think the front page should say it plain as day instead of having you go half way through the sign up to find out. It sounds like a recipe for kids to steal their folks credit card.

    Here are some really cute 3D pets. We will let you pet and play with them in preview but you have to sign up to do more.

    It's designed for children, but some adults may play as well. It's been pay to play for a while now.
    I wish I had more data on this site. I'm guessing it's probably have gone downhill a little bit because players don't like to pay to play. It's a good idea, but I just don't see them pulling a lot of users in anymore.
