Taking a game over to F2P is no weekend task. The game went F2P back in November 2010. PotBS also just celebrated their 3-year anniversary in January 2011. The game has been constantly updated with new content, including the special anniversary pets. Williams says:
"This whole process has gone from stressful, confusing, and exhausting to really fun and exciting. I can’t wait to release some of the fun stuff in future milestones, including the shoulder monkey which is available in Testbed’s Treasure Aisle right now!"
