~Links to the Past~

Post by Jessicat on Mon Dec 26, 2011 10:57 pm

Hey all, I thought it would be neat to share a bunch of links I've amassed over the years relating to GoPets, figured I'd finally drop them all down here in the forum. There's one site I can't find, but I'll save that for later hunting I guess XD [It was a cell phone cite with flash screensavers and flash game apps. Pretty old, I can't seem to find it now].

Here's a new article, from 2013 even! Apparently Erik is now working on some top-tier blackjack game :\

According to the GoPets Facebook page, they are working on aquiring GoPets and have all of the files backed up!
Smart Erik!

I would definately give you the links and stuff for it, but because I'm a new member on these forums, it won't let me post external links for 7 days.
If you can wait until about next Wednesday, it should let me. ^^

(This is the post I wrote last week when it told me I couldn't add links yet)
I'm not quite sure how to get the exact link, but if you go here and read through the comments on some posts, they have responded to some people and gave some information reguarding the future of GoPets.
I'll give some screenshots just in case the link doesn't work out all that well. ^^
Trying my best!! I hope I'm doing this right...

Wow. Those look really promising. I guess we'll see what happens.

gopets.com does seem to be owned by Erik once again: http://who.is/whois/gopets.com

Here is the page https://www.facebook.com/pages/GoPets/104263593299

Here is the link for posts to page
https://www.facebook.com/pages/GoPets/104263593299?sk=posts_to_page

Personally, I don't think one reply from March sounds promising. If there was real news we'd see more. And what does this mean? "But we need to think what type of game we would like to work to bring more fun and excited GoPets back again to all our fans!" Not sure it would be GoPets. Although GoPets did actually have a lot of problems, if they did a new game with pets that looked the same, that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

I guess we'll just have to see what happens in the next few months or even years. Maybe they meant a new game to go with GoPets? I remember they used to have games like GoDance and those little mini games I can't remember the names of. I also remember they promoted games like Diner Dash. I've made a post on the Facebook page to ask for any new updates with the team, and I'm just going to hope they respond and let us know if this is really happening! ^^

Woah. The GoPets page on FB just updated their cover photo with artwork I've never seen before. If they have people working on graphics, something has to be happening, right?



EDIT: Scratch that:

Yeah, that just doesn't really sound like we'd be able to actually make a GoPet.. They're just going to use the artwork in a casino type game.. That's what Erik does now. Not my thing.
