    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.

    What virtual pet sites have disappointed you

    What I mean by this, the pet site either opened up for a little while or just couldn't make it because A) lack of staff B) lack of funds or C) lack of dedication and motivation.

    So, what pet sites have disappointed you over the years? Were you sad when Cyopets didn't make it? How about Ataria(everyone thought it was a Subeta clone)?

    Let's discuss those pet sites that have disappointed us over the years. =P

    Polaria made me disappoint.
    It was there, and I really loved the graphics.
    But then it disappeared for some reason... :|

    Neorus.
    It was alive for a few months, from what I remember. Then it disappeared off the face of the earth.
    Either way, it was a great site while it lasted, so the only big disappointment was the fact that it vanished.

    I played neorus for a bit. I loved it a lot. I was disappointed because it was a genuinely fun petsite.

    Voice 1:

    Zetapets. It had promise, but that just turned into piles of meaningless promises and a mix inaction and lack of motivation amongst key staff members that a lot of the original community just gave up and the site never truly recovered.

    I'm glad someone else remembers it!
    I also agree that it was genuinely fun. It didn't have much in the way of revolutionary features, but the pet designs were mostly fabulous. Same with the community.

    And whilst I remember, Spielpets was also a pretty big letdown in the end.

    Herunovus and Earthae (in its development) I wonder what happened to Earthae; we never got any new information about their progress after VPL shut down did we?

    Re: What virtual pet sites disappointed you because they didn't make it?

    Ya, I remember Neorus as well. Jordan(reptileman) owned it. OwlManAtt also helped out for time to time. What did you like about it?

    He's one of the owners. Jake is the other one.

    Ya, I wish it could of made it - if it wasn't for all the staff conflicts and the meaningless promises.

    HeruNovus and Renkilia were both a disappointment to me.

    That was the first site that came to mind when I thought of "disappointment." Didn't they change their name, too? I remember going to a site that looked exactly like Zetapets but had a different name.

    Re: What virtual pet sites disappointed you because they didn't make it?

    I was a mod/artist on polaria for a little while. If I remember correctly, Jake just disappeared one day and Gatlin didn't know how to code... then I started seeing Gat online less and less until it just kinda fizzled.

    Tygras, because I didn't like the way the whole owner disappearing thing was handled. Very poor business skills.

    Voice 1:

    If memory serves, Zetapets eventually came out with a new version that changed the game and a separate site was set up to continue operating as "classic" Zetapets.

    Polairia. I was one of the artists there.
    If I remember, Jake and Gatlin owned the site.
    Something happened between. I think it was about ownership of the site? Bleh here and bleh there then it just died.

    Zerapia.
    http://zerapia.forumhope.com/
    There forums are still there, but I think they kinda died. I think it got a new manager, but that was in 2009...
    I was a graphics artist for them (Total failure, I was only 12/13 at the time...)
    and the community was nice, and they had some very good artists there. I Think it had potential. But.. :/

    Ya, I don't see why they didn't redirect the domain though. I remember the quests feature, and a few other dailies.
