why yall should join goatlings ;;;
its like neopets!! but goats
you can keep goats as pets, they start off as grey/basic and you can buy ‘Appearance Dolls’ (like np paintbrushes) to customize them. there are currently 490+ ADs, and the number is constantly growing. these goats are easy to take care of, they dont die, and you dont have to feed/play/etc unless you’ve been using them in the battle arena.
the ADs, items, etc. are very frequently designed by actual random users of the site, many users are artists and theres a big focus on collaborative efforts, and no matter your abilities you always have a chance to have your designs be accepted by the official team and turned into real designs if you put them out there. not 2 show my bias but i currently have 7 official items i designed 👉🏻👈🏻 (heres some of them shown below!)
the economy is pretty dang stable, you do various tasks and dailies to get ‘sugar stars’ (the in-game currency) and it’s fairly easy to keep up with the market. users put in effort to keep the markets balanced and affordable, they pay each other fairly and are quick to call out people who try to scam or lowball, so thats virtually a non-issue. there are also Many generous users who can help people out with getting items/ADs they want, especially newcomers!
you can also use real world cash to buy ‘diamond dust’, which you can then use in a special store, BUT!!! the cool part is!! these diamond dust items once bought CAN be freely sold and traded amongst users for the regular site currency, and they are reasonably attainable. i’ve been able to save up for Plenty of items i couldnt put down real life cash for. there is literally almost nothing in this game that is gatekept from your account if you dont have real money to put into these special items, its just a slight advantage but you can still do and obtain whatever you want.
goatlings also allows off-site trading, meaning you can trade goatlings items/currency/etc. for items/currency from any other gaming website (that also allows cross trading), including flight rising!!
you name your pets, choose their gender (or lack thereof), you can give them custom bios, and even give them a displayable collection of favorite items or ‘treasure’ that you want to show off, they are highly customizable.
its a very lgbtq+ friendly community with many >official< lgbtq+ items, like a huge array of flags and pronoun sets for your avatar, many flag clothing items, flag icons, multiple official pride goat designs, and more!
also many racially diverse options for your avatars, many skintones, hijabs, So many dreadlock, braid, fade, etc. hairstyles, black lives matter banners for your avatar, and more :)
there are also occasionally charity fundraisers, theres one every june for black lives matter, theres been one for breast cancer, one for a species of endangered goat, etc. and i’m sure these will continue in the future.
the website doesnt use flash anywhere, so everything is fully operational and isnt waiting on a re-coding like many other gaming websites atm, it doesnt require any special software, etc. and you should be able to use it easily on any device!!
tldr; please join me ive been here since 2015 (username is bibble hmu) and the community is really growing the past few years, but i wanna share it with more people :(
