Tiddly-Winks’ Music

May 13, 2009

Written by: Yvette Jessen (Tiddly Winks)

Tiddly-Winks has so many hobbies that it sometimes seems as though she loses track of them all. She loves spending the spring days in her neighbourhood bumping trees, collecting coins, and savouring a piece of cheese after a hard day’s work.

tiddly-winks01

Of course, the most enjoyable activity is to visit her friends. Each one is unique and special for variety of reasons.

Bubba always has a funny joke to tell, Harry tells her about the movies he has seen, Mookie and she enjoy looking at new furniture, Benjamina shows her the fine art of decorating a cheese room, Rio-Clarice and she go window shopping, and Skunk shows her his latest dance moves over sparking pear juice.

tiddly-winks02b

However, the thing that she truly loves is to make music. She enjoys music as much as she enjoys buying a new dress at the clothing store, or checking out her latest mystery box purchase.

tiddly-winks03

One of her favourite places to go to play music is her friend Kokonee’s house. Kokonee is one of her best friends and they’ve known each other for a very long time. Whenever the two of them do get together, it is a given as to the activity they will choose first.

As soon as they hug one another, Kokonee immediately races across her living room to the acoustic guitar in one corner. She has no doubt been anticipating Tiddly-Winks’ visit as much as Tiddly-Winks had anticipated stopping by.

Kokonee begins to strum while Tiddly-Winks grabs the trumpet and brings it to her lips. After a proper warm-up tone emerges, the room is suddenly filled with cheerful music. This leaves both friends feeling very happy as the final tone fades.

Each day this happens whenever Tiddly-Winks visits her friend, and each day there is a feeling of joy that emanates from them as they play their favourite songs together.

Once the two friends have finished their jam session, they laugh before they head off to the café to sit down and enjoy a blueberry muffin or cheesecake. Their discussions are usually about their love of music and what songs they will be playing tomorrow.

Winners of Weekly Draw Week 18

April 29, 2009

Hey all Pet Society Fans!

As you know there is now a weekly draw for those who are Fans of Playfish on Facebook.

Currently the draw is exclusive to our Pet Society Players.

This week we had our first draw, help us congratulate our winners!

  • Victoria and her pet Bruno
  • May and her pet Kiki
  • Antonella and her pet Afrodite
  • Pauline and her pet Bunny
  • Anthony and his pet Picku

They all received a nice sum of 10.000 Pet Society coins to spend however they wish!

Good luck to everyone else next week, but remember that you must be a Fan of Playfish on Facebook if you wish to participate in the weekly draw.

Song contest winners announced!

April 28, 2009

We were amazed by the level of quality on show for the Pet Society song competition. So good in fact that our only complaint is that you’ve made it really really hard to pick just three winners!

But pick them we must, so without further ado, it gives us great pleasure to announce the winners of the Pet Society song competition!

In third place is the excellent Bailey Love by OzencOnline. As with all the winners of the competition it’s superbly catchy, captures some of the things we love about Pet Society. We defy anyone to listen to Bailey Love without tapping their foot in time to it!

Second up is My Wife Loves Pet Society More Than Me! which was a fantastic little bittersweet song about a man whose wife may just love Pet Society more than him. An expertly crafted acoustic tune and some great work on the guitar… we hope your wife finds a little time for you as well as her pet soon, sodapete!

In many ways this is as much a joint first place with the other winners, but for sheer singalong genius we had to pick Because I Got Pied to edge out the other songs for the top spot. It made us laugh, it made us cry (with laughter), and by the end of the song we were even singing along. ardydelrosario, we salute you!

Thank you to everyone for entering! Entries were uniformly excellent. In fact special mention must go to the brilliant Pet Society Song, which fell down only due to being a little short… an otherwise superb offering from TribeSpirit and well worth a listen.

Until next time folks!

Because I Got Pied

Pet Society becomes the first game on Facebook to surpass 1,000,000 fans!

April 27, 2009

1 million pet society fans

We’ve been delighted to watch the continuous growth of Pet Society – our social virtual world on Facebook and MySpace. Since launch 8 months ago it has grown steadily to become the biggest game on Facebook by daily active users. Around 3 million people play every day, and around 11 million played in the last month alone. Today we’re delighted to announce passing another milestone – 1,000,000 fans! And it’s the first game on Facebook to get there!

‘Love’ has always been an important success metric for us at Playfish. Our teams across our studios work hard to create games that our players love to play together as much as we love to create them. ‘Love’ is, of course, difficult to measure in numbers, but there is one metric on Facebook – fans. And today we’re proud that Pet Society has passed the 1 million fan milestone as the first game on the platform! That means that over 1 million players have found the ‘become a fan’ link in the game and chosen to register themselves as a fan of the game.

As ever, we’re hugely grateful to all our players and their support and help in our efforts to evolve the game and make it better. We appreciate that the game has a monthly population that’s bigger than Belgium if it was a country and around the size of Ohio if it was a state. So we’re working hard on adding features, items and new exciting things to do in the game!

Please keep the feedback and suggestions coming. We can’t always reply to every mail and forum post, but we do read them and value all the comments we get!

Once upon a time…
