Pixel Cat's End is now Open for Registration until Sunday November 20th at 18:00 Server Time. Head on over to the Registration page to sign up!

As of November 20th at 20:21 server time, all 'missing confirmation email' tickets have been responded to, so if you did not hear back from me, your email likely rejected both the site's email & the gmail I've tried to resend from. If this is you, please send another support ticket in providing an alternate email.

I've also gotten quite a few "address does not exist" bouncebacks, so please send a support ticket if you didn't get your confirmation email and suspect you may have misspelled your email address.

(EDIT: Updated time)


sparkles An Introductions thread is posted in the Off-Topic Forum, feel free to stop by and say hello!

cozy If you have any questions at all, post in the Q&A Forum! There are many of us who would love to answer your questions and help you get oriented. There is also a robust assortment of guides in the Guides Forum.

rally If you'd like to learn more about the long term development plan, you can see an outline in the Dev Corner.

goldgift There might be user-organized freebies and giveaways in the Raffles & Giveaways forum over the next week, so do check those out.

envelope An introduction to the site is included in the next post in this thread. This will contain a little summary of where we are in the beta process, where we're going, and some small important notes that will be useful to you! I highly recommend reading through it.


exclamation Please Note: There's a known issue with gmx addresses being unable to receive emails from the site. I highly recommend choosing a different address when signing up for the site so you can get your confirmation code.

It's possible other addresses may also be affected that I'm not aware of. If you do not receive your sign-up email after a few hours or so, please send in a support ticket to indicate this and I'll make sure you get yours forwarded from a separate address.

Hello and welcome to Cat's End! This post will have some quick information to help get you oriented.

squid People!

I'm Squid (they/them) and I'm the artist/developer/etc. of the site. This game is a single-dev project, with pretty much just myself doing all of the art, writing, coding, and so on. I also work full time outside of this, so you may find that this means the pace and process is a little bit different from games that are built by full teams.

The other admin account is @Naja (he/vi). Naja's role comes down to basically "the mod-iest mod who quietly writes down all the rules."

And of course.... this is my kitty. Her name is Pilot and she is the perfectest cat in the world:

writing Beta

This site is currently in beta, which means that I'm still working on building the main features of the site (and some of them are a bit buggy). We are over halfway through the beta plan now, with only a few things left on the list before we move from building remaining features to scaling up.

Unlike some betas, there will not be a data reset, so your cats are here to stay.

My immediate plan for the near future is:

- Finishing up the village lodge and additional lodge roles, which includes a fix to an issue where people can get buried in tiny baby cats and then get stuck.

- Some sort of way to monetize the site through premium currency and the ability to design your own custom decor/clothing. Servers are expensive and there are quite a lot of you for the server to support. If you'd like to help, please consider donating to my ko-fi, as even just a little bit helps to offset the costs of running the site.

carrot Game Priorities!

- This game is a very slow/casual pace. Until adventuring came out, it was mostly a matter of checking in briefly once a day and slowly building up your village over time. Adventuring has shifted this pace slightly. You will be the first newbies to join while adventuring is here, which means you'll probably go faster than others.

Don't be surprised if the game is still slow though. This is intentionally designed like this to make it easier for people who are busy with work and school to keep pace without feeling burdened by the site. You can get by just fine even if you only check a few times a week or just do your 10 minute dailies once a day.

- There's a big lore focus to this game, and as we round out the main features, updates will largely be tied to world plots and site events for everyone to participate in. The world has a story to it that will slowly progress collectively. I have plans to allow the userbase to steer the direction of said plots with occasional voted on decisions and so on!

beans2 Navigating the Site

- The entire site can be navigated via keyboard. You can use standard keyboard controls (tab, shift tab, etc.) in Adventuring as well. If you see pagination on any page, you can go between pages using the left and right arrow keys. This is because I injured my wrist a few years ago and have a pretty limited ability to use the mouse, so I try to make it so that I have to use it as little as possible.

redheart Important FAQ Answers and Disclaimers

friends Cat Prices
Cats in general here can be very valuable. Please be sure to check prices before making sales or trades with other users, or before listing on the cat recruitment board. Some of these can fetch upwards of 10k notes.

Things to watch out for as they are worth quite a lot include:
- Albino Cats (highly valuable)
- Null-Wind Cats
- Cats with the "Solid" pattern (highly valuable)
- Cats with pointed patterns ("Cloudpoint", "Colorpoint", "Lynxpoint", and "Mink")


house City and Traveling

"Send Traveling" is essentially storage for excess cats, and the rewards you get from it are very rare and small compared to what you would get from active cats doing your dailies. I highly recommend not sending cats traveling until you start to run out of space in your village.

"Send to the City" removes a cat permanently from the game. This can't be undone, so please use this feature with caution. The rewards you get are much less than what you would get selling the cat to other users.

backpack Adventuring

I recommend checking out the official Adventuring Guide before diving in. Adventuring is not intended to be easy at first. Locations are designed so that they get progressively harder the deeper you go into them, so please don't hesitate to turn around early on a few times until your cats unlock the level 2 abilities and rewards or build up more gear and equipment.

tea Blocking Images

The game does have light horror themes, so if there are certain items or monsters (such as spiders) that bother you, I highly recommend using an adblocker to block certain assets. There is information on how to do this in the Adventuring Update post.

If Nestor's eyes are an issue, you can turn them off in your Account Gameplay Settings. You can also enable icons on cats and toggle off adventuring animations there.

leaf3 Gathering

Gathering modifiers (bonuses and penalties) only apply to the bottom of the roll. This means that no matter how bad your cat is and how bad the weather is, your cat can always roll the maximum value. You're never locked out of getting the rare items, so do not be shy about putting your cats in jobs they are bad at if you need the resources that that job gives.
