tiny hearts Welcome to Cat's End
Pixel Cat's End is a virtual pet site where you collect and manage a village of cat-like creatures. You can dress them up, give them jobs, build and decorate their homes, and (coming soon) take them on tabletop-rpg-style adventures.

Cat's End is now in closed beta testing. If you'd like to be notified about upcoming registration windows and opportunities, feel free to keep an eye on the site... or follow one of my infrequently-used social media pages:

Tumblr | Twitter | Ko-fi | Twitch | Other Links Someday

While I do not have time to keep these updated, I will post to them when openings happen. A full development plan is available in the Dev Corner

Mini-Update: Progress on Adventuring
Aug 4, 2022 9:44:20
Hi everyone! It's been a dry period with few updates so I wanted to give you a little bit of news on where we currently are in the development journey.

rally Status of Adventuring

July was very quiet and August is going to be quiet as well. I am currently putting all of my time and energy into finishing up Adventuring. The core features will be finished up within the next couple of weeks and then I'll be finishing up the content for the first location. At that point, it will be a lot of bug fixes, small tweaks, and balancing changes. I still do not have a set timeframe for the pre-adventuring update, because sometimes bugs take 5 minutes to fix and sometimes they take a week to fix, but it is most likely to fall sometime in September with a full release coming just a couple weeks after if all goes well.

Bug fixes, small content updates, and so on are very likely to be slim until adventuring shows up. On one hand this is good news because it means I'm close enough to feel comfortable putting a laser focus on completing it, but also bad news because you probably won't hear from me on a lot of the entire rest of the site until it's finished. In theory this kind of dry spell won't happen again because at that point, almost every feature still on my pending list either builds upon existing features or is easily broken up into small pieces added steadily over time.

To tide you over until the next update, I've got some screenshots of an adventure in progress so you can actually see what adventuring looks like right now! These will be included in the next post in this thread. nestor

cozy Next Registration Period

Because of all of this, I do not currently have an estimated date for the next registration window. I'd like to wait until after adventuring drops before I increase the userbase any further to decrease the chances of the adventuring update overloading the site. It's going to change the server load patterns a lot and if there are any major bugs it's easier to wrangle them with less people around.

The next opening might be in September, but it also might not be until later in the Fall, depending on how things go from here. I don't want to give a set date because I don't want to promise late September if something in adventuring goes wrong and it ends up not being possible until a month or so later.

It's very difficult for me to predict the timelines of releases and such because so much of what I have the energy to do is dependent on what my irl job's situation is. My irl work responsibilities are very volatile and since I've been in my current position for less than a year I still don't have a great idea of when the busy periods are. nervous

boop Forum Helpers

We've welcomed 3 new forum helpers to the team, all with a strong track record of helping out in the forums! Hello and thank you to all of them. hi

We got a ton of awesome applications from great people, so if you didn't hear back from us don't fear - we'll definitely be going back through them again when the site gets larger and we need to expand the team again.

painting Art Streams?

I've started streaming adventuring art on twitch again (after procrastinating streaming for like 6 months). There's a link on the front page, so feel free to stop by if you want to say hi and distract me from what I was trying to do experience the art process. Absolutely not a schedule because every day I say "I kinda want to stream art again today" and then I don't do it, except sometimes I do.

There was one last Monday, and might be another one tonight or tomorrow night (or there might not be, not even I know). overwhelmed
