These days, an online game doesn’t have to be on Facebook to be social. In fact, for kids, an age-appropriate virtual world (such as TriplePoint client, Fantage), is a far safer and enjoyable play experience for a number of reasons. A free-to-play Flash platform means all of your friends can play too, and Fantage offers safe social interaction with other users you don’t know in real life (aka: new friends).
For Fantage users, this summer just got a lot warmer and fuzzier. The virtual world for kids just added a new pets system, which includes collectible creatures, customizable barn habitats, and a heap of new animal-themed minigames to play with your pets.
Pet Town introduces a new level of skill and chance to the casual game-filled playground, and a new way to spend eCoins, for users who are so inclined.Here’s how it works (via VerticalWire):
“Pet Town offers cuddly fun without the hassle. Fantage users are able to create and cherish up to 25 different creatures, without having to constantly care for them. Users will be rewarded with trophies when they collect all five members per pet family, and a medal for each pet they collect. While collecting, pet owners will also be busy at play, as new pet games are introduced throughout Fantage this summer and beyond. These specially designed games are only playable alongside a pet, and the selected pet’s skill level will affect the outcome. Pets with higher skill levels will be the talk of Pet Town.”
“In order for Fantage users to get their paws on the lovable new pets, they will need to purchase eggs (using Stars, which can be earned by completing in-game activities) and incubate them under specific lighting and temperature settings. These variables determine what pet will hatch, and over time, users can learn to adjust the settings to create an optimal condition for hatchlings. For those users eager to hatch and meet their pets faster, Fantage offers Magic Codes (purchased with Fantage eCoins) with which users automatically set up the right conditions to produce the exact pet a user desires.”
