Looking for help either building from scratch or building off framework (currently using Joomla but open to all suggestions) in place a growable virtual pet adoption website.
User accounts, forums, growing virtual pets that can be adapted to the account, and traded between users, as a base.
Site-curreancy, to buy preimum adoptables.
Looking for this to be web-based (Web site), but mobile-friendly
Looking to long term grow and add more features, but want a base product to beta launch
Php, Mysql, HTML5, CSS based
Can provide examples of other sites, do not wish to copy them, but just use as an example of functions if you want to see similar live sites.
