Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Hello everyone, we're super excited to finally open our in-progress pet & avatar game to a larger audience.
Below we'll be outlining important info, things to look forward to, and other related news regarding our testing phase!

WHAT TO EXPECT
Due to time constraint and in the interest of not delaying Beta launch any further, you might find that some features of the site aren't fully working or have errors, please see our forums for guidelines on how to submit bug reports! We'll be fixing bugs and pushing new updates throughout Beta, so expect possible downtimes, lag, or things not working correctly! The site has grown considerably since its Alpha iteration back in March 2017, so we'll need some time to sort through and perfect our new features. Looking forward to working with everyone!

SIGN UP WINDOWS

Here is info on all of our current sign up windows, more will be announced as beta progresses!

BETA DURATION
We're planning to run Beta for at least 2-3 months, potentially longer.

BETA WIPE
At the end of beta, all account progress, currency, items will be wiped! Only Account names and IDs will remain.

BETA SPECIFIC OFF SITE TRADING RULES
  • Offsite Trading of in game items will not be allowed during beta, since all items will be wiped at the end.
  • Offsite Trading of Item Redemption Codes for Offsite digital content are allowed at your own risk, provided the other site in question also allows it. Moderators will not be able to intervene on these trades gone awry.
  • Trading codes/items for IRL currency is not allowed, doing so will result in a banned account.

Please read additional rules in our ToS, Code of Conduct, and Rules & Guidelines!

PLANNED CONTENT UPDATES
We've released Beta with about half of its planned content, we'll be doing the following updates throughout beta to add more content to the game!

CUSTOM ITEM RACE
Custom item makers won't be functional in beta. However, in order to test its rarity, we''ll be awarding the top two people who generated the most out of Chance Machines with actual custom maker items in Official Launch! There will be one winner for each type: Custom Pet Creator and Custom Item Creator.

PREMIUM ACCOUNT BADGES
To all backers of our Kickstarter, you will notice that you've received a Premium Account Badge when redeeming your Pledge bundle. They are currently not yet fully implemented, but we'll be posting a news article when they are functional!

That's all for now, more detailed updates coming with each new release! Have fun!

    Adding: noticed that codes can be reused, but what about trading for separate items individually? Would a new code be generated for those separate items that we could possibly use?
  • Villager Redla (#6521) 24 Mar 2018, 8:52 pm
    While I understand and agree with progress being wiped, it seems like a really, really bad choice to have KS and Beta items wiped after Beta. Also going to agree with sparing pets from the wipe in general since many people get attached (myself included), but I can see it might give people a leg up. Would it be possible to consider an alternative for this? Thanks!

    Just wanted to check, for the custom item race what matters is how many you generated in the chance machines not how many of the physical items you own (ie. purchased from shops or obtained from kickstarter rewards)?
  • Villager cinnamonroll (#8076) 18 Mar 2018, 10:32 am
    hi, if we traded for kickstarter items during beta, will they be wiped from our accounts after beta?
  • Villager Poppy (#221) 17 Mar 2018, 8:12 pm
    Gator (#3438) - it was mentioned throughout DV's social media (including the discord) that the site would be wiped after Beta, this isn't new knowledge really.

    I don't think people are realising that the reason for beta is to help the makers create a better game, giving the chance for people to 'Volunteer' to join the site unfinished so we can do what we can to help the creators ensure the success of this beautiful site...
    Personally I'm not here to 'Play the game' in a sense but to break it to give my opinion and to explore as much as I can so I can give as much feedback as I can, and i feel like thats my job as a Beta player.
    So I feel before people get complaining about Losing there progress and pets etc. This site in still under construction don't blame them if you misunderstand what you have signed up for. (they have clearly posted many times your progress will be reset) And if you feel like you don't want to volunteer yourself then come back at official is my best guidance

    Lycanroc (#2343) All item redemption codes will be re-usable in official launch! For people who were sold the codes, they can simply keep the code and redeem it. Any in game code generated item that was traded within beta however will not actually change hands in official launch, unless the trade involved codes and not just on site items.
  • Villager Lycanroc (#2343) 14 Mar 2018, 7:47 am
    Since items will be wiped out and people will be allowed to use their codes again... What happens to ks/beta items people have sold/given to other people? Wouldn't it make more sense to somehow spare "special items" from getting wiped out?

    i'm super excited for the upcoming updates!!
  • Villager Prim (#4104) 13 Mar 2018, 7:58 pm
    So excited for the wipe, that way I can restart as animal race lol
  • Citizen Banshee (#3401) 12 Mar 2018, 2:49 pm
    Exited to be a part of this!
  • Villager Gator (#3438) 12 Mar 2018, 8:46 am
    It might be super worth considering not... wiping peoples pets...
    I'm unsure of how that coding works but people tend to get attached to their pets and it's pretty disheartening to know they are slated to be taken away. Especially when they take So long to incubate.
    Talking to some other people I know who also play everyone's generally pretty chill with losing all their items and such, but pets are such a big deal on a pet site.

    I'm very excited to be part of the beta. I hope we'll be able to squash some bugs, improve performance and gameplay, and overall have a great time! :)
  • Villager Jynx (#4036) 12 Mar 2018, 12:47 am
    Litost (#3861) From what I understand, after the wipe, all codes will also be wiped from the system so that you can use them again.
