In late February, we took a look at Music Pets, a music-based pet simulation game on Facebook. The game is from the good folks at Conduit Labs, who yesterday announced (as reported by Games Beat) their partnership with Universal Music Group, which will see the addition of thousands of new songs into the game.
If you liked the idea of Music Pets – feed your pet and use its energy to collect music tracks from artists both popular and indie, but were disappointed with the lack of big name groups available to listen to, this news is especially good for you, as, now, users will be able to find songs from artists like Rihanna and U2, among many others.
Loudcrowd, another game from Conduit, more primarily focused on indie music, rather than the mainstream, will also be able to pull from the Universal Music Group library.
As for Music Pets, the game makes money from users who purchase virtual goods to decorate their pets’ abodes, or more songs themselves. The app currently has access to around 150,000 songs. By the end of the month, thanks to this new deal, it will have 250,000.
If you’ve yet to jump into Music Pets on Facebook, head over to the game’s page and try it out.
