New House!


A new house has been added to Pixpet! The Fjordland Villa!



The new biggest house features 9 House Parts and has space for 6 Pumpkins, 10 Plants and 23 Pixpets! It is available now for PC 71000 on the New House Market.

How in the world can anyone feed 23 pixpets with only 6 pumpkin slots? I don't understand why bigger houses have so few pumpkin slots, after the Mansion the number of pumpkin slots *decreases* with each bigger house, I mean, there's no "instant pumpkin grow" Super Potion, so that's 6-24 pumpkins a day depending on RNG and fertilizer...


7 times the cost of a mansion for twice the pet slots...but LESS pumpkin slots making it less possible to hoard with pets at all.
Something's not right here.

Like it's a great looking house, and the extra rooms idea is really smart. Well done to everyone who worked on it.

I'm just talking gameplay mechanics, I just don't understand why every house after Riverside Mansion has such tiny yards and barely any pumpkin slots, you can't feed 10 pets with that few slots nevermind 23! It's just like "here's a new thing but it's only for looks and has no useful function at all, and costs 7 times the last functionally logical house"

Once again I find myself not wanting to move from the mansion. It's pretty and has neat rooms and all..... But the lack of pumpkin slots means I'm going to forgo this and hope that the next house will have a better ratio.....

I understand your concerns and of course I see that the cost of the house is not proportionate. This high tier house is not meant as a stat scale up of the other houses, it is primary meant as money sink and endgame content with a certain element of "redundantnes" to it as many giant mansions in the real world actually are.

Managing 23 pets at once is something that would keep you busy all day. Also if the number of plant and pumpkins slots were scaled up directly you would hit other limiting factors soon like brewing times.

The house is primarily meant as prestigious object to own, as option to show off your Pixpets and have many rooms to decorate while not giving high end players even more advantages over the slightly less active Players. The capped plant and pumpkin slots act as intentional limiting factors.

Well, with so many new outside-only items being released recently (rose trellis, fir tree, hibiscus bush, etc) I hope the next house has more outside area to show these off, I really like them.

Only 7k more pixcoins and I can afford the new house ^_^ though it is annoying we dont even get 1 extra pumpkin and/or plant slot. Though I do have a 200k food so my pixpet should be set for a while and with all those extra slots have to start hatching some of my extra pixpets eggs to fill the slot.

Might decide to pass on the house. Don't really send out my pixpets on hoards anyway. I think I will just save my massive stack of pixcoins for pixpet adventures.

Looks so large and prestigious, oh my. Honestly, I haven’t bought a house in so long, I could buy it right now. But unless it’s got a plant slots upgrade, I’m just not interested... but it seems like I won’t be getting more plant slots ;-;

Other than the fact it looks great, to me it's just not worth the price. Best looking house out of all, good job on the art!

Honestly what is the purpose of owning a house and it is just to show off your decorating skills and pixpets? A house solely for endgame purposes and money sink? Wow.

I thought that was what the game was about, though? The reason we hoard is to collect decorations and pixpets so that we can show them off. All other items and potions help towards that goal.

And the money sink was needed. I'm just worried about its effectiveness because most players don't read every post in a news thread, so they may not understand why this house doesn't have more pumpkin slots.

But this time it's right before the adventure... which we know its a pc sink as well. And plus the jump is really big from 20000pc to 70000pc. And in the future the houses just will get bigger and bigger but the pumpkin slots still won't change. So I kinda think there could be a stepping stone in the future towards the house for people who only have a few k (more than 20 less than 70k). True the fact that gaining pc is quite easy now.

Yea true... but decorations shouldn't only be the main point of the game anymore.

I usually upgrade my house once at a time, so it's gonna take FOREVER to get that house. But I appreciate it!

Oh, an expensive baby. Really disappointing since with such a price I would expect a house to be OP, but eh, I'll still wait for the next house to come out.
