Don’t be a fool, spring has sprung!

March 30, 2009

Hey Pet Society fans! The latest item release has just gone live, so sign onto Pet Society via either Facebook or MySpace now to view and buy some of the latest additions!

Since April Fools Day is this Wednesday, have a little fun all week with these additions!

In the Food Store you will find a Mystery Box Cake, hopefully your pet will not get confused and try and open it, as that could get messy! Also, for all poo fans, this week you can buy edible poo!

And the last surprise in the food store this week is a practical joke to send to your friends! It is definitely a delicious gift, but watch out if it comes flying your way!

Let´s have a sing song!

March 27, 2009

Ever wondered what it was like to be a star? We want to give you a chance to show the world just how talented you are by recording a song about Pet Society!

How you perform the song is up to you — whether you want to use instruments, or compose something on your computer, or just sing or rap… it’s really up to you. All we ask is that it’s your own work, and that the content is family friendly.

The best songs will take pride of place on http://www.petsociety.com so everyone can enjoy your masterpiece!

Once you’ve got a video of your song, upload it to YouTube (preferably with the lyrics written into the description) and post a link in the Pet Society Competition forum, but remember to get your entry in before the close of the competition in four weeks!

Have fun everyone, we can’t wait to see what you come up with this time!

Letter from the Mayor – Supplier issues

March 20, 2009

Hello all!

Now, there’s bad news and good news. The bad news is that jukeboxes and luscious lips loungers will soon be taken off the shelves. Unfortunately in these difficult times our supplier, Pet Party Products Inc. has gone out of business, and after we’ve sold the the last shipment of jukeboxes and loungers, they will be discontinued.

The good news is that we’ve been able to locate another supplier, Pampered Pets Inc., who not only stock a larger range of jukeboxes and loungers — they’re also cheaper!

Of course, if you’ve always wanted a jukebox or luscious lips lounger then now would be the time to buy — they won’t be around much longer!

Good day to you all!

The Mayor

“?” is playing tricks!

March 20, 2009

Hey Pet Society fans! The latest round of mysterious items has just been hidden in mystery boxes, so sign on to Pet Society via either Facebook or MySpace now to search for them! (If you are currently playing, remember that you will need to save and quit and then reload to have a chance of finding these items!)

Mysterious Reforms!

March 16, 2009

Hey Pet Society fans! The new game updates and weekly item release have just gone live, so sign on to Pet Society via either Facebook or MySpace now to check out all the latest and greatest changes!

Two new stores have been introduced to the Pet Society town; firstly we have the Gadget Store:

The Gadget Store is where you can find kitchen appliances, the latest technology including mobile phones and laptops, and a few other items including the Playfish Clock and Pinwheel! E.M.I.L.I.A, the Gadget shop keeper, will be more than happy to assist with any of these needs (please excuse the *bleep* noises)! You can find out more about E.M.I.L.I.A by visiting the neighborhood page.

And secondly, there is the Mystery Store:

The Mystery Store is the new home of Mystery Boxes! The shop keeper is as mysterious as the items in his shop though, no one knows his real name, so we just refer to him as “?”! You can read more about “?”, even though he will still remain a mystery, on the neighborhood page.

The Mystery Store is about more than just Mystery Boxes though! When you enter you will see the Mystery Egg Vending Machine!

Mystery Egg Vending Machine

Toy Mystery Egg

When you select the Mystery Egg Vending Machine it will ask you if you would like to buy a Toy Mystery Egg. A Toy Mystery Egg can be placed on the floor by your pet, and your pet will ‘open’ it, similar to a Mystery Box. Inside your Toy Mystery Egg you will find either a toy or a scene! The toys from Toy Mystery Eggs are different to the other toys in the game, instead of your pet picking them up, carrying them around, and giggling, they are designed to work with the scenes (although they can just be placed on the floor, or a shelf, etc. as well). Each scene has a place for four specific toys, and animates. The scene does not require the toys to animate, however, the toys will only animate if placed on their matching scene! Hence, the animation will only be complete with all four matching toys on their specific scene. Please note that you need to click the scene to start or stop the animation!

There is one more thing you need to know about Toy Mystery Eggs and the toys and scenes that can be found in them, which is that the toys and scenes cannot be gifted! They are collectable items which you can only find for yourself!

~~~~~~~~~

Moving on to the weekly item release! Remember that any items labelled This Week’s Special (TWS) will be removed from stores at midnight GMT on Monday the 23rd of March, but may be available again at some point in the future.

DIY Landmark Competition Results!

March 11, 2009

Well it’s been yet another successful competition with yet another amazing collection of spectacular entries from you all! As per usual it was incredibly hard for us to pick a winner, and so many of you deserved a mention, but we thought these three stood out to us as being exceptional. We strongly recommend having a good look through the threads though to see some of the amazing work on show!

First PlaceAt first place is Authoritee’s Arc de Triomphe.  Perhaps not the most overstated of entries. Perhaps  not the closest to scale (we’re pretty sure we could  fit more than one pet underneath it), but you have to  respect the fine workmanship which has gone into  getting those details just right. 

Second Place

Second place goes to Nickie and her White House. We think she may have run out of space at the top to include the famously domed roof in its entirety, but we felt this was possibly the most striking entry  of all with the amazing use of kitchen containers as  the walls and windows of the famous building.  Nice work Nickie!  

Third Place2Finally third place takes a slightly different  viewpoint than most, but is a remarkable use of  space and materials. Enlightenedkarma obviously has an excellent eye  for colour with this tasteful view from Bourbon  Street Balcony, and she’s completely transformed  every day items into a completely new use. Superb.
