Lights, Camera, DASH! Meet the stars of the DASH games!

Flo is a spunky, sassy, no-nonsense small-town girl who packed up and moved to the big city to try and make her way in life. After an initial foray into the high flying business world, Flo rejected the boring, cubicle filled life before her and decided to make a sudden, spirited change! Taking matters into her own hands, Flo quit her job, rolled up her sleeves, donned an apron and opened up her very own greasy spoon restaurant. Strong-willed and practical, with an unflagging work ethic, Flo likes to bring order to chaos and see a job well done.

Unlike her good friend and roommate, Flo, Quinn is a vulnerable and romantic Southern belle. Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, she first stumbled into the wedding business when her friend Amy roped her into planning her nuptials at the last minute. Today, Quinn is confident and successful, and has celebrities calling her to plan their weddings!

Cookie is a classically trained French chef whose cuisine of choice happens to be the Great American hamburger. Firmly believing that delicious doesn't have to mean fancy (or tidy), Cookie set out for America—home of the classic diner. It was there that he met Flo, and a great partnership was forged. He left Flo's Diner briefly to star on television, but has since returned. Together, Cookie and Flo consistently deliver the best burgers, meatloaf, and gravy DinerTown has to offer. While Cookie still sometimes misses France, his friendship with Flo and all the diner customers makes him feel very much at home in DinerTown.

Customer Support Refund Policy Update

Greetings loyal PC/Mac fans!

You have questions and we have answers, hopefully we have the answers to your questions.

We'd like to take a little bit of time to announce the changes in our refund policy regarding older PC/Mac titles. As of the 12th of November 2012, we discontinued support and production of any PC/Mac titles. After a month long effort to ensure all of our customers had a chance to claim refunds and organize back ups of their games, we pulled the plug on our PC/Mac support.

At this time we are unable to process refunds for any purchases made. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our users and even though we cannot refund you with money, we will continue to offer various codes for our iOS and Android games depending on the amount of purchases made on existing accounts.

We thank all of our customers for their loyalty and our customer support team is standing by if you wish to collect on our special offer.

Many thanks for your understanding and cooperation through this transitional phase!

The PlayFirst Team

Happy National Puppy Day!

Did you know that today, March 23rd, is National Puppy Day?

According to the official website, founded in 2006:

"National Puppy Day is a special day, recognized on March 23rd annually, to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it's a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills, as well as further our mission for a nation of puppy-free pet stores."

Doggie Dash

Here at PlayFirst, we definitely care about the welfare of puppies.  We'd like to think of our game "Doggie Dash" as being pro-puppy because it's all about taking care of and pampering our beloved pets!  Every puppy deserves a great home and a little TLC.

Pet Shop Hop

In "Pet Shop Hop," you must save this exclusive boutique from being run out of business by 'MegaPet Superstore,' which represents many of the issues pet-activists are fighting against due to their sub-par treatment of animals and breeding for profit rather than for puppy health and well-being.

Both of these games are currently on sale due to the Spring Sale event that ends on the 25th.  So remember the puppies on this holiday in any way that you can!

We'd love to see pictures of your pets if you would like to post them in the comments, and cute rescue stories are encouraged!
