Dream PetHouse was a mobile simulation social network game created by Zynga. This game was available for users to download starting on February 2, 2012.[1][2] The game was similar to other games that focus on building, such as Zynga Dream Zoo. In the Dream PetHouse game, users could collect and care for cute, adorable animals.[3] A free version of the game was available to users, but to speed up his or her advancement in the game, a user could pay real money to buy digital fruit, seeds or coins.[4] This type of game is known as a freemium. The height of Dream PetHouse's popularity was in June, 2012, when according to Daily Active User (DAU) metrics, there were about 400,515 daily users.[5] Using DAU metrics, Dream PetHouse had about 12,602 daily users in April, 2013.[5] Beginning in May 21, 2013, Zynga announced that it would cease supporting this game on June 28, 2013. The game was supposed to be shut down on June 28; the server was finally shut down on July 4 or 5.[6]
