What inspired you to create your own pet game? Were you inspired based upon the success of the wide variety of virtual pet sites that are currently out there or did Pokémon and/or digimon inspire you to create your own pet site?
Thank you for posting your story! What made you decide to mesh pokemon and Neopets features? How many members did ShadowofDawn have? How far along are you with the development of your game?A combo of Neopets and Pokemon. Some of the pets were from when I was a kid and made up a thing called Horse Land. Pretty sure this was vaguely inspired from My Little Pony but was an art thing my siblings and I would spend hours on. It later evolved into Dangermon and included evolutions and Pokemon crossovers. Then more time went on and it turned into ShadowOfDawn and got a decently active, but small, community (this one actually was online for awhile).
As it is now it has still retained the original Pokemon and Neopets inspiration but now also includes inspiration from Persona and Fire Emblem as well as genetics and the beauty of nature. I've also pulled inspiration from many indie games and their aesthetic/playstyle.
I'm currently working on making everything mesh nicely but I think I found my niche fit.
Nice! Whatever happened to your rpg game?Growing up with Pokémon yellow and so on, then Neopets and others later, started with trying to make an rpg game 15 years ago, then onto petsites.
I totally understand! If you don’t mind me asking, how much did you end up selling your rpg game for? 🤔Some of the code and art made, not as far a playable site, someone randomly made an offer and I sold what I had. It was far lower than it was worth, but I was a kid and didn't know better.
