PetVille seems to be taking a page out of YoVille’s playbook with their new item theme, as the game’s Outdoor Store now offers a slew of items that will allow you to decorate for a trip into the great outdoors. In other fall-related news, we see the announcement of a new Halloween design contest that will see 3 winners walking away with free Pet Cash!
Celebrate the Fall by Taking a Camping Trip!
If you’re looking for a way to bring fall camping trips, or treks up to the family cabin into PetVille, you’ll be happy to know that you can now do so via the wide variety of new camping/cabin themed items now available in the game’s Lawn and Garden Store. To be especially clear, these items are entirely separate from any Magic Door – they have simply been added for your own decorating pleasure.
The items range from plant life like cattails, flowers and lily pads, to a multitude of animals – a Cougar cub, platypus, ducks, frogs, gophers, skunks, snakes, and so on and so forth. Most of these animals cost Pet Cash to purchase, with the exception of the Limited Edition Fox, that will only be available in the game for 1 more day, and is available to purchase for 28,000 coins.
Other items come in the form of the Cabin proper, tents, lawn chairs, decorative pinecones, tree stumps, and even a green take on the old Airstream trailers called the Petstream trailer, which costs 23,000 coins.
To make your room look like the great outdoors, you can purchase a Crystal Springs wallpaper for 25,000 coins, and the Crystal Springs Forest Floor for 12,500 coins. Head over to PetVille on Facebook to purchase any of these new items.
Enter Design-a-Pumpkin Contest for Chance at 100 Pet Cash!
PetVille is one of the first Facebook games to make a move towards the upcoming Halloween season, and they’re doing so initially in the form of a new contest called simply the “Design-a-Pumpkin” contest.
This contest asks users to express their creativity, designing a jack-o-lantern for consideration. This is a unique contest, in that users can enter many forms of media as their entry. That is, you can design a pumpkin via your favorite photo manipulation software, or you can carve a real-world pumpkin and then scan in pictures of the creation for judging.
You’ll be able to post 3 images of your single design, in order to give the PetVille team a good look at the entire pumpkin, and the top three images (as chosen by the PetVille team) will be added to the game as “Giftable/Coin Halloween Decorations.” The three lucky winners will receive one of each pumpkin and 100 Pet Cash.
For full rules, or to enter the contest yourself, head over to the contest’s thread on the official PetVille forums.
