The “Behind The Scenes” series is a chance for us to give you a glimpse into the inner workings of HabitRPG, Inc., the company that makes Habitica. Every so often, we’ll treat you to some silly staff shenanigans or show you the work that goes into your favorite features. Enjoy!
Many of you have seen our fancy pixel pets on display next to our avatars, but in honor of today’s love-filled holiday, we wanted to show you some of the real-life pets that we adore. Enjoy!
Autumn frequently uses Stealth, so it can be tough for Sabe to capture a photo.
On the other hand, Sabe’s dog Menchi is a more outgoing adventurer…
…as is Watson the Basenji! (Elementary, my dear pup!)
It’s fitting that Verily the cat is so fond of decorations, since her owner is Leslie, the Seasonal Sorceress!
Verily is always on the alert for new ways to earn gold and experience…
…and never misses the opportunity to battle a Boss!
Meanwhile, Vicky’s dog, Ruby, is thrilled at the prospect of checking off her “Exercise” Daily with an awesome hike.
Since brain is just as important as brawn, Ruby also makes sure to spend time organizing her tasks…. her tasty, tasty tasks.
After a hard day improving your Strength, Intelligence, and Perception, don’t forget to get plenty of rest to boost your Constitution!
Phillip’s cat Muffin is a constant coding companion…
…even when he falls asleep on the job!
Keith’s dog Izzy is eager to meet you 😛
Plus, his cats Talulah and Pilgrim know that being in a Party with friends is a great way to stay accountable to your tasks… even when your only To-Do is “Sit on the Rug.”
Beth’s cat Beauford has lots of Dailies, including “Test Pillow Softness”…
…and even “Model on the Catwalk!” (Believe it or not, Beth made that bandanna herself.)
Alys’ cat Anya might need to add “Studied Reading Comprehension” to her Dailies, but at least Kissy the dog can click the (+) on her “Sharing Graciously” Habit!
Meanwhile, Alys’ cat Ben is prepared to leap into battle, dragons or no.
Cantras’ dog Alvin says, “Don’t let anyone make you feel silly about the stuff you love! Even if you love a ball wrapped in an old sock.”
Alvin also wants you to know that when your tasks are hard, you should never be afraid to ask for help.
Megan’s cat Taz doesn’t even WANT to look at all those dark red To-Dos!
Meanwhile, Megan’s other cat, Casper, shows us that he knows quite a few tricks, including rolling over for kibbles!
Hulk the bunny needs to consult with her owner, shanaqui, about which class to choose. Should she be a Rogue, since she’s so good at disguise?
Or should she be a Mage, since she’s so good at studying?
This is too exhausting for Hulk. Time to Rest in the Inn.
We hope that you enjoyed meeting our real-world companions 🙂 Even though none of them are Gold, Red, or Cotton Candy Blue, they make up a spectacular menagerie.
Until next time!
