I'm up for joining a new pet site. I am willing to potentially shell out for up to the Custom Pet Maker Tier depending on the information of the game. I'm a bit hesitant on the pure fact that I know almost nothing about the game, even after looking around their tumblr and whatever information is public.
Can anyone provide any specifics on this game?
From what I understand, it's a pet site that's more rpg-based; when a member starts out there's different races/classes to choose from, all which have different stats, and what equipment you have on your avatar + what pets you have will affect your stats as well. You can level up (via gaining experience from quests, I presume) and increase your stats that way too. There's 4 different starting towns for a member to choose from, with NPCs in all of them.
Questing is one of the main features of this site, and you do them to gain experience/items/currency/pets. Quests are obtained from NPCs, though some depend on what your relationship with that NPC is. (You can become friendlier - or get on bad terms - with NPCs though interaction!) Stats will effect how easy or difficult certain quests are to the player.
Aside from that, there's also alchemy - where you can transmute items but also pets. I heard from a few alpha tester friends/those who kept up with their development stream that there's a special pet that you can obtain via transmuting all 3 of the Kickstarter exclusive pets together.
There's also a chance machine/gacha feature - both a premium version and a non premium version - where you can get equipment/apparel for your avatar, pets, rare items, monthly collectibles, and also 'custom makers' which allow you to work with a site artist to create your own apparel/item, but that's incredibly rare.
Of course there's also forums + messaging for user interactions, as most petsites do!
I've been mostly keeping up with Dappervolk for it's art style, but I have a few friends who managed to get into Alpha testing and they said it looks really promising, so I'm super hopeful!
