Very long time no see

Post by Mysstii on Sat Mar 29, 2014 2:04 pm

Well just today I decided to join this site. Honestly, I had put it off because well...I was a registered member of Gopets, however I couldn't launch the client. But I wanted to register here anyway even though most of ya'll won't know me.

You see, I believe I joined back in 2009 or 2007...can't remember which. I think it was the latter. I found Gopets after looking around on google trying to find virtual pet sites. I was sick at the time but I was really excited and happy discovering the site. I had an old XP desktop computer. When I downloaded the client and tried to launch it I encountered an error. It's been so long I don't really remember what it exactly said but I believe the problem was my graphics card. I guess it didn't support direct X 9? Idk. So instead I friended and talked to members on the site. Everyone was so friendly. Um....my username or that I remember was Catlover14? I think that's right. T__T Yeah I wasn't creative back then.  

I was pretty active on Gopets even though I couldn't really play. LOL I remember sneaking on my computer at night just to see if I had private messages and read them. :oYeah I was pretty obsessed. Then...I think I forgot about the site for months. When I did remember it again...I found the site but the domain was for sale. Then I found the announcement as well.

Eventually my XP died. I was about ready to smash it anyway >.< It was horrible. Now I have a laptop running Windows 7 and the graphics card I believe is decent. So I'm just trying to keep up hope that Gopets will come back soon and I could finally play :DI really hope so. Besides, Erik has everything backed up and he isn't part of Zanga anymore. Sadly it's been so long I don't remember many of the people I friended. I only remember Gankaku? Yeah yeah and her pets Kabuki, Origami, and Bonsai. There was one other don't remember the name. And I remember when she had her own site dedicated to her Gopets. Anyway, hope to meet ya'll! I noticed this forum is pretty quiet. Hope I'm not too late.

Hi there Myssti!

Sorry it took me so long to see this. I tend to pop in every few months to see if anything has changed. Usually I am disappointed.

People were somewhat active on these forums back when GoPets shut down but since then activity died down until it died out. After all, there is only so much reminiscing one can do about a game that hasn't existed in four years.

So I'm just trying to keep up hope that Gopets will come back soon and I could finally play

Yeah, I wouldn't keep my hopes up. Considering that Erik has now joined founded a company (called Bee Cave Games, if anyone is interested) that makes casino games, I am pretty sure refounding a virtual pet company with a failed business model isn't high on his list of career prospects.

Also, while I cannot be certain exactly what the terms of the acquisition were, I'd imagine that Zynga would retain ownership of GoPets should Erik leave the company. They did buy it afterall.

Really, although Erik said they were backing up the data, I don't think there was ever really any chance of GoPets becoming a real thing again. It was a nice idea but I don't think it was one that reflected reality. I could be wrong, of course.

Sorry to be Mr. Doomsayer. :)Do you have a Twitter account by any chance? A lot of old GoPet-ers (which is not a word that should be typed ever again) are quite active there and it so great to see them in my feed every day. It is actually quite amazing to me that one can still have a connection with people that you met in what, in your mind, seems like an entirely different lifetime.

EDIT: Corrected "joined" to "founded" above.

Hi Mysstii! Like KittyJuan, I pop by here once and a while to see if anyone has shown up. Mostly just to direct them elsewhere--because few people visit this forum, as you can see. KittyJuan mentioned Twitter, and I do have a page there (see my sig) and so does Gankaku. And there are many more GoPets refugees on Facebook. There's a GoPets Facebook group I admin, originally started by IndigoCowgirl, please feel free to join https://www.facebook.com/groups/295769778710/ If you are on other sites, you can let me know, I might be able to find out if any GoPets peeps are there. :0)
