1st and 2nd November
  • SITE UPDATE - Well you may have noticed the site was a bit faster than usual yesterday. We have been tuning our database and adding more servers to make it run faster, and it seems to have worked. Yesterday we did a whopping 171,866,200 yellow bar pageviews (255,761,000 overall) which is our best ever :) Also 2,927,780 flash games were played which is also a record. Thanks for playing!


  • Oops the Defenders of Neopia had a problem and wasn't working for most people. It's fixed now, sorry about that.

  • Look real Ghostkersandwiches... scary eh!

    Mmmmm... processed cheese

  • UPDATE - A while back we mentioned that we were working on a PlayStation game called The Darkest Faerie, well there have been a few delays. Basically we felt that it couldn't achieve everything we wanted it to on the PS1 and so we are going to re-make it as a PS2 game (so the graphics will be much better!) and it will be out in 2005. Don't worry, it's only -595,920,507 seconds away (roughly!)

    Sorry about that. The good news, however, is that the game will feature evil faeries, werelupes, a zombified King Skarl, Illusen, gigantic Draik skeletons, the legendary land of Talador and the (possible) total and utter destruction of Faerieland (unless you can stop her!)

31st October - All Hallows Eve
  • (more halloween content coming soon - we ran out of time today!)

  • Who is that tapping at my chamber door? Why, it's none other than Count Von Roo, and it looks like he has a Dice Game to play with you...

  • As an extra-special Halloween treat we are doing a second PPL today! The winner is the Abominable Snowball *shiver* We had to stop the script after the first 250,000 owners were given prizes, so if you didn't get one, sorry, there just wasn't enough time in the day to reward all of you!

    UPDATE - From now on the PPL page will display the most popular names for Petpets!
