Over the meadow and through the woods…

October 28, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Looks like it’s time to tear down the Halloween decorations and take a nice long rest from the festivities until next year! We hope you enjoyed 4 weeks of Halloween in Pet Society as much as we did! I have thoroughly enjoyed viewing your beautifully decorated homes in the Gallery of our Official Forum. The creativity that spews out of your fingertips never ceases to amaze me!

As much as I enjoyed Halloween this year, I am happy to take a rest from spiders, spookiness and from being bombarded with Hideeni’s sweets at every corner! (Remember, Hideeni will stop giving out candies on November 4th!) It will be nice to kick our feet up and enjoy the quiet Autumn Countryside at it’s best, as that is the theme for this week!

Starting today, you can rummage through the Mystery Boxes to find knickknacks and home decor such as the beautiful Autumn Lavender and Rooster Plate Decor. “?” is bitter that Halloween has ended so soon, but he was nice enough to throw in some items for our Country homes anyway. See if you can find all 3! (Also note that previous Halloween Mystery Items are going to be removed November 4th.)

The perfect accessory for floral printed couches? Yellow Country Pillows of course! You can send this stunning accent piece to your friends for free using the Free Gifting Function inside the game.

Only 10 of your most helpful pals are needed to build this beautiful Red Windmill, perfect for any farm. Keep in mind, you don’t have to pay full price anymore if you can’t seem to get those last stubborn clicks needed. The price now adjusts the more your friends help!

Put your Lucky Hat on, and hit the Town Forest! Adorable little Pecking Chicks are scattered all over the place looking for a home to call their own. The map is updated now, so go try your luck! Remember, this little guy is only around for one week!

Come Tuesday, we welcome another plushie into the ever growing collection! The Black Sheep Plushie is available on Tuesday, November 2nd for 24 hours only. So make sure you sign on that day to claim one for yourself! On Wednesday November 3rd, the Playful Piglet seems to be stuck in the mud and could really use your help! Sign on that day to claim yours, as he’s only available for 24 hours!

You’ve asked for them! Now they’re here! Many of us have watched Hideeni strut his stuff down the aisle of a shop, or frolic gracefully through our gardens at home. No matter what he’s up to, he looks fabulous doing it. Rumor has it Lily (the clothing shop owner) got her hands on Hideeni’s secret seamstress’ designs. Now all of the beautiful (and crazy!) costumes are yours to own. Strut your stuff on the catwalk and do Hideeni proud! Only a certain special kind of pet can work an Octopus costume! See if you can collect all 9!

No space in your Garden? No problem! You can grow your own meadow on your head! The Autumn Meadow Hat takes three days to grow, but you can watch the changes take place right before your very eyes! You can pass the time by while getting your favorite wigs dyed pink with the Pink Wig Dye Table. It’s easy, with a one time purchase of the table, you will receive unlimited dyes in the three pink colors for life!

The Win or Lose boxes have been updated with an accessory every girl lusts over! Handbags. *drools* A couple of pies in the face is worth fashion this great, right? See if you can find the Gothic & Pink Heart Handbags today! The best part is, they’re wearable!

The cobwebs have been dusted away and been replaced with beautiful country furniture that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I can just picture Hideeni’s grandmother standing over a hot stove in her apron, while she cooks every pet that stops by a nice warm cookie. Mmmmm. We’ve got you covered in all rooms! Bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen! Let’s just hope there isn’t any plastic on those couches… that’s just awkward.

While sipping on your morning coffee, you can gaze out of your Autumn Country Window and admire the Autumn Countryside Wallpaper from your kitchen. The Red Tractor from the Outdoor Shop should help a little bit with never ending list of yard work that comes with owning so much land in the country, but maybe we could convince Hideeni to clean up some of those pesky leaves when he’s on his holidays?

You must place the Autumn Garden sign in your room somewhere in order for friends to view the room too. Remember that there is a one room per person limit, no matter how many you buy!

All spooky things must come to an end…

October 21, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Halloween is fast approaching, and the town is looking spookier than ever. With Vampire pets, bouncing bats, and fellow pet friends being abducted left and right, I can’t help wondering what will happen during the final week of Halloween in Pet Society!

So, what has been your favorite Halloween item so far this year? Was it the Innocent Bunny Plushie? Or perhaps the Haunted TV? Feel free to share your opinion here in the weekly item release thread located in our official forum.

Before we get to the new items, a couple of important notes need to be thrown out there!

  • Collaborative Items – If you’re looking for just a few more clicks but simply cannot wait for your friends to help you, there’s always the option of buying it from the Boutique. The only difference is, now the price will be decreased depending on the number of clicks you already have, which is something new!
  • Have you read This thread regarding the recent coin earning change?
  • The first “Most Liked Sale” will begin on Monday when the new items arrive. Can you guess which item won? Actually, scratch that! We’ve decided to put the Innocent Bunny Plushie on sale right now!!! Go check the stores to get yours at an amazing price!

“?” always seems to be in the Halloween spirit. So even though Halloween will quickly come and go for all of us, we can always rely on a bit of spooktactular humor in the Mystery Shop! He’s always playing tricks on us by hiding new items in the Mystery Boxes, and this week is no exception! Remember that Halloween items found in Mystery Boxes from all four weeks will be removed by November 4th 12 AM GMT. So get em while you can!

As the final week of Halloween in Pet Society wraps up, the 4th and final piece of the Cute Black outfit has been revealed! Pair these adorable shoes with the Cute Black Hat, Top, Pants and you’ve got yourself a super chic Halloween Party outfit! You can gift the Cute Black Shoes and all of the other pieces of the ensemble for free via the Free Gifting function at the left hand side of your screen.

We’ve been enjoying random parties with our friends ever since Pet Society celebrated its 2nd Birthday with the Party Invitation, but now we’ve taken this idea to a whole new (& slightly scarier) level. With the help of your friends, you can build an all new Zombie Invitation which unlocks a new animation for our pets. When placed in your room, 3 of your deadliest friends will attend your party – Zombie style!

The Pet Society team sure knows how to play up some of our biggest fears. First clowns, now spiders?! Eeeep! I do have to admit he’s pretty cute though, even for a spider.. I may have to convince Bella to come out from under the bed to accomplish some digging this week. He is, afterall only available for one week! You can find this furry little friend in the Town Forest, and I strongly suggest using your Lucky Hat to make sure you get enough for you and some of your friends that may be too creeped out to find one for themselves! Good luck!

The Limited Edition items are simply “to die for” this week! Har har. On Tuesday, we have the Grim Reaper Statue! Not only will he scare strangers away on Halloween night, but the cool thing is, he glows in the dark! On Wednesday, the Dark Unicorn Seat will impress your neighbors for sure! Make sure you sign on both days to get one for yourself, as each item will only be around for 24 hours and not a second more!

We’ve been dying to know all month long what the final installment of the Spooky Collection would look like, and here it is! Spooky Dinner for Two is a candlelit dinner beneath the stars… but, who is pouring the drinks??

This special room is for those that purchased the entire Spooky Collection, found in the Boutique. You still have time to decide if you want the room or not, but these items will be leaving the stores this week, so make sure you choose soon! The room won’t be around forever. Also note that if you bought the items, and you decide to sell one of them in the future, you will lose your room. Fun fact – this spooky room is animated!

Why wait til Valentines day to bust out the romance? Love should be celebrated all throughout the year! The Romantic Halloween 2010 Gift contains the perfect items to express how you truly feel for your loved ones, not to mention they make really great gifts to yourself too if you’re feeling like spoiling your pet! The great thing is you can choose the gift you want to send (or keep!) and they open on Halloween.

No space in your garden? No worries! For all of your creepy planting needs, we’ve got you covered! You can rip up existing trees and place them in the Graveyard Bonsai Plot to decorate any room in your house. Or for flowers, you can plant the seeds directly into the Graveyard Flower Plot if you’re all out of plots in your garden.

Your pet will haunt and petrify all of his/her neighbors upon taking a deadly sip of the new Ghost Potion, which is available in the Magic Food section in the Grocery store. Maybe we can finally payback Hideeni for all of the times he’s crept up on us!

I’ve been reading your comments all week long in the forum, and the biggest request for the final week was…. Costumes!! What is Halloween without costumes? You didn’t really think we’d leave those out did you? So what will your pet be? A Werewolf? A Dead Zombie Girl? If you’re planning on being the scary clown, you can forget a party invitation from Bella! She’s way too spooked by clowns. Make sure you take lots of pictures of your pet all dressed up and share them in the Gallery.

Not only are we celebrating Halloween this week, but we’re also celebrating Hideeni’s 1st Birthday! October 23rd marks one full year spent with Hideeni and his crazy tricks. We love to hate him, and hate to love him but at the end of the day I think we all appreciate the wonderful gifts he gives us out of the kindness of his heart. Happy Birthday Hideeni!! Check out the Market on Monday the 25th of October for more great items including a Gothic Bat Car fit for the Batman fans at heart!

October 14, 2010

Two weeks down, two to go! The third, and spookiest week so far starts today. We’ve had gentle Halloween, and we’ve had Vampires. Now it’s time to pay a special tribute to Scary Movies! Those nail biting, hide-your-face-in-the-popcorn horror movies we all know and love. The following preview involves greasy hair, scary girls popping out of television sets and scaring the living daylights out of pets everywhere, and and all new Hideeni. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
 

 
How has everyone been enjoying the Mayor living in our neighborhood? There are some exciting new changes that have recently taken place, so make sure to stop by for a visit and see what’s new! Starting today, you can send a gift/and or message to the Mayor and he will send a message back to you in return!

 
Sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now to start hunting for your own Redrum Wall Sticker (use a mirror to help decipher the hidden message!) or even a Sack of Candies. “?” has to give the treats out this year since it looks like the Mayor is cheaping out and handing out hugs instead. Perhaps someone should slap a Zombies Wall Sticker on his front door to stir up some trouble! That’ll teach him!

A ha! It’s all starting to make sense now. The Cute Black Halloween Cap, the Cute Black Halloween Top, and now! The Cute Black Halloween Pants. Can you guess which item will come next week to complete our collection? Make sure you send one of each to your friends! They’re free.

If clowns scare you as much as they scare me, I would seriously think twice about digging up the newest Weekly Digging Item. He’s called Cute Clown Teddy but don’t let the name fool you! There’s nothing cute about clowns that creepy. *shudder* For the fearless pets, I tip my hat to you. They’re available in the Town Forest right now, and will only be here for a week (thank goodness) so get them while you can!

It was pretty hard trying to top the Mad Scientist Flask Aquarium collaborative item from last week, but the Pet Society Team has managed to do it! The chilling Pet Abduction Window is the newest item for up for grabs. You can witness a real abduction right out your window (I asked.. it’s not Hideeni. I heard his costume was too heavy) Ask for help from 15 of your friends to obtain this item for free!

Two more awesome items join the growing family of Limited Edition items. These special pieces are only available for 24 hours each, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday. After that, poof! They’re gone. So make sure you sign on those days to get one for yourself. On Tuesday in the Clothing – Accessories Shop, it’s a bird, it’s a plane! It’s… an Unidentified Flying…. Hat? This animated hat spins, but beware! I foresee a recreation of the pet abduction from the collaboration window above.. only this time with the unfortunate pet wearing the hat. On Wednesday, in the Boutique – Amazing Items a very special Black Flying Broomstick will sweep your pet off its feet and fly them around the room.

Come Monday, part 3/4 of the Spooky Collection, the Haunted Grandfather Clock will be gracing us with it’s presence. If you missed the first two posts here’s a recap. If you head over to the Boutique – Beautiful Items you will see a spooky display showing off two items from the past two weeks. The Spooky Ghost Fireplace & the Spooky Ghost Piano. If you purchase those two items, along with the Grandfather Clock (released Monday) and the 4th and final piece (to be released on October 24th) then you will unlock a new Halloween themed room, for free!

It’s clear that Terrence is a movie buff, with all of the bone chilling items he’ll be placing in his store come Monday. The Haunted TV is by far one of the scariest items released in Pet Society to date! Whatever you do, don’t let your pet stay up late watching that channel. He/She will have nightmares for weeks. The Wooden Flying Broomstick will lift your pet up off the ground and take them for a ride around the room once sat upon. Get your Petlings in the Halloween spirit by purchasing a Cheshire Cat Petling Potion . When they drink it, the only thing visible is their eyes!

We’ve all got skeletons in the closet, but what about Monsters in the Closet? You can pick up your very own Monster on Monday in the Furniture Shop. Did you know that breaking a mirror means 7 years of bad luck? Looks like we’re in for 7 more years of Hideeni visits, folks.. sorry.

If you’re not too spooked after visiting the other shops, head over to the Market to pick up your very own Flying Magic Book or Happy Halloween Wall Sticker. If you’re really brave, take home a Pigsaw Tricycle. Let’s just hope he doesn’t come with a tape recorder..

Most Haunted Pets: Garden Edition

October 13, 2010

A little while ago we asked players to design a spooky vegetable, flower or tree to go into Pet Society just in time for Halloween. The winner of each category would earn themselves a frighteningly large amount of Playfish Cash — 500 to be precise — as well as eternal fame as their hard work is made available for the game’s millions of players around the world to buy.

So who won? Let’s hand it over to Eepette, the host of Most Haunted Pets, to find out!

“Thanks Mark! Welcome to the very special garden edition of Most Haunted Pets, the show that visits the most mysterious and eerie homes in all of Pet Society and brings supernatural discoveries to you live on camera! This week we’re going to be taking a look at haunted gardens, so expect terrifying trees, fearsome flowers and, er, very scary vegetables! Our first stop is a spooky vegetable patch. If we wait a few moments, I’m sure something scary’ll happen pretty soon.”

The camera settles on a patch of potatoes. Time is set to fast forward, but nothing happens. Suddenly the camera spins wildly and a carrot flies past.

“Did you see that?! A carrot just flew through the air!”

The footage is played back in slow motion. On the second pass, the host of the show, Eepette, is visible in the side of the frame throwing the carrot.

“Well that was amazing! Now I just need to go to the bathroom….I’ll be back in a second. Keep looking, and listening… I said listening for anything scary. BRB!”

Eepette runs enthusiastically out of sight. Suddenly, loud knocking sounds can be heard. The camera whirls around to focus on a large shimmering gray tree. The footage is played three times for good measure, each time slower than the last. Three Moody Ghost Vegetables can be clearly seen in a distant part of the vegetable patch, giggling, sobbing and growling in equal parts. The camera now focuses on the knocking sound, while the camera operator mutters shrilly into the mic that he’s absolutely terrified. Encouraged on by the rest of the crew he starts to approach the sound. It seems to be emitting from behind the tree. Terrified, the crew pace around the tree to find Eepette knocking a piece of wood on the tree’s trunk. She drops the piece of wood when she sees them approach.

“Oh my, did you hear that knocking sound? I heard it all the way from the bathroom, what do you think it could be?”

The half-speed replay shows Eepette startled and dropping the piece of wood in slow motion.

“Hmm, must have been….like….a ghost or something. Anyway let’s go check out those flowers!” As she points to the flowers she absently picks a Gummy Ghost Fruit from the shimmering tree and eats it. “Hmm, spookily delicious whatever they are!”

Next, the crew paces over to a flowerbed across the garden from the tree. By this point Eepette seems to be running out of ideas. “Wooooo, I’m the Green Garden Ghost!,” as she wafts a leaf in front of the camera. The crew is becoming visibly frustrated and embarrassed.

“That’s a leaf, Eepette.”

“Yes it’s a Leaf Ghost.”

“No, it’s just a leaf.”

Eepette stares at the leaf still in her hands for a few moments then appears to lose interest and flings it into the flowerbed. As the crew starts to return to the Most Haunted Pets van, a single black rose spits out the leaf and smiles that chesire-cat smile.

“Well that’s about all we’ve got time for! Over to you, Mark!”

Er, thanks Eepette. Anyway moving swiftly on, congratulations to our winners, MissGlitter who designed the spooky Spirits Tree, CarlosEP creator of the devilish Black Cat Rose, and Danzefly the evil mastermind behind the Moody Ghost Vegetables. Each of our ghoulish winners have won 500 Playfish Cash, as well as their designs featured in Pet Society!

We were truly bowled over by the sheer talent on display during this competition. We only wish we had time to put ALL of your ideas in the game. Really amazing!See you next time and have a spooktacular Halloween! (Hey it’s Halloween. Bad puns are allowed at Halloween). 

Trick or Treat!

October 7, 2010

Hey Pet Society Fans! Halloween is quickly approaching, but the spooky festivities aren’t stopping anytime soon! Instead of teeth rotting candy, we have a different kind of treat for Pet fans everywhere. Did you see this thread, on our official forums? There has been lots of buzz and rumors about a very special guest who is moving into our neighborhood soon. Can you guess who it is? I’ll give you a few clues. He looks great in a top hat, is an amazing role model to pets everywhere, and is filthy stinkin’ rich! If you guessed the Pet Society Mayor, you’re absolutely right! Our very own Mayor has decided to come out of hiding and move in right next door!

Make sure you sign on to Pet Society via Facebook to give our new neighbor a friendly greeting! The Mayor will always appear at the beginning of your list. Your pet can visit, interact and even talk to the Mayor himself! Don’t forget to take a picture and show it off in our Gallery at the official forum.

If you can manage to contain your excitement for just a few moments, I’d love to share the newest batch of Halloween items with you! It’s Vampire week for Halloween Part 2! So get your garlic ready, pet fans! Remember that only the Mystery Boxes, Weekly Digging Item & Free Gifts are available now. All other items will be available on Monday October 11th but it doesn’t hurt to sneak a peek, right?

“?” knows how to get the party started, he’s already stuffed the Mystery Boxes full of treats for us to find! Sign on now to see if you can find them all before they disappear! Please note that any items marked Halloween Special will be around until November 1st 12 AM GMT only, but may return in the future. Mystery Items will remain in the boxes until November 4th.

Are you noticing a trend here? That Cute Black Halloween Top looks like it would match perfectly with last weeks Cute Black Halloween Cap. I wonder what we’ll get next week… Hmm… In the meantime, make sure you send a top to your friends, hopefully they’ll follow suit and return the favor!

Every Vampire needs their own wearable Vampire Cane. It’s just plain cool! You’re going to have to work for it though, so make sure you put on your Lucky Hat and hit the Town Forest shovel in hand. This Vampire must have accessory is only available for a week, so no late visits to the Mayor! You’ve got work to do!

I don’t know what’s brewing inside the newest collaboration item, but it sure looks like the Halloween Slimy Fish from last week would feel right at home. Gather up 15 of your friends, and ask for some help building this spooky aquarium for free!

I strongly suggest setting some time aside on Tuesday and Wednesday this week to pick up two very cool, animated items that are only going to be available for 24 hours each. On Tuesday, it will be the Bouncy Bat Hat (and let me tell you, the name does not lie!) For Wednesday, your guests will surely be petrified when they catch a glimpse of your Haunted Spiral Staircase.

As I stated last week:

Terrence has a special promotion starting on Monday. The Spooky Ghost Fireplace is just 1 of 4 special items in the “Spooky Collection”. Each week we’ll release another part of the collection, and if you purchase all four by the time Halloween is over in Pet Society, he’ll award you with a free room! The fireplace is not only animated, it’s haunted!

Part two of that collection will be arriving on Monday October 11th, and if you thought the fireplace was spooky, wait til you see the piano! Also coming Monday is the seemingly sophisticated portrait of Pawrian Gray, though.. I think he’s hiding something.. Turn off the lights to reveal his secret, if you dare!

My, what a sweet looking bunny… but wait a second, fangs? Why is there toilet paper all over the house?! And WHY is my seemingly sweet bunny walking in such a creepy manner?! It looks like the Innocent Bunny Plushie isn’t so innocent after all. After three days your “Innocent” bunny will transform into one of three possible Halloween nightmares! Can you collect all three? Do you WANT to collect all three?! *shudders*

What’s Vampire Week without Bella and Edward themselves? If you’re a Twilight fan (*tries to contain self*) you’ll be happy to see wigs in the Clothing Shop – Hairstylist inspired by our favorite characters. If you’re not a Twilight fan, well, the wigs are still cool anyway and you can just pretend they’re named “Roger and Kristine”. Lily also has dark and mysterious clothes for you to act the part.

If you’re planning on throwing the perfect Halloween Party this season, perhaps enticing your guests with a game of Apple Bobbing out back would score you points?
