  • January Update

    Hello Growtopians!

    I hope you're well-rested from your holiday revels and all set for a new - and fantastic - year of punching, building, and growing! To get things started, we've prepared an update we think will be a ton of fun: Treasure Hunt!

    Before we get into how it works, I'd like to talk about the thinking behind this one, first. See, we know you guys like riddles, hunts, and puzzles. We also know that the last major system to really do a lot with them was the Ancestral Power update and its artifacts... and that was over a year ago! So we knew we wanted to do more with that, and we wanted to make something that was a bit more accessible for the average Growtopian.

    That meant something with a low barrier for entry and a range of options and opportunities for adventure, and with those things in mind, what we've come up with is... a Treasure Hunt! In short, you'll be tearing apart a new blast world for map fragments. Combine these fragments to create a variety of maps (maybe, just maybe, you'll get a legendary one), each with their own riddles. Solve the riddle(s), discover the needed actions, and if you're lucky, you can find hidden items throughout Growtopia!

    No crazy new systems, no added complexity, and no super-high gem or WL walls - just good 'ol breaking, puzzle-solving, and fun new items. We think you'll get a kick out of this, but either way, please let us know!

    Oh, and have a wonderful New Year!
