4 Years of Pet Pupz

I usually try to blog about this a little earlier in the year but, as has become custom nowadays, things have been so busy that I just haven’t had chance. So, on the day when I turn 29 years old (big one next year – eek!) I thought it would be the perfect time to look back on how things have progressed.

Starting in January 2008, we went from a standing start to about 30,000 daily players in just a few months. From there we had a huge amount of technical problems which, in the end, I found to be due to a ridiculously stupid coding error. Without the help of David Tenemaza from Sharkius chances are that we’d never have managed to work out what was going on. Thankfully he was there and a short time after that we hit an amazing 150,000 daily players.

Since then there’s been a gradual decline as the bigger companies have come in and pushed the boat as far as social gaming goes. With millions of dollars of investment it’s been impossible to keep up but we still have a great community and loyal following (both on the game and on petpupz.com) who continue to play and enjoy what we do.

I’ll be the first to admin that in the last year or so Pet Pupz has taken a back seat as far as my focus goes. Starting pet365 and heading up the Electric Dialogue technical team has given me pretty much no time at all to develop and advance what we have. That, however, is going to change. In the next few months I’m going to make a real effort to push the site and game back to where it should be. More content; new features; better support.

So… thanks for playing, and be sure to have a drink for me this evening!
