    Default New update: Hungry Ghost Festival

    Some of my friends have mentioned that Hungry ghost festival is coming. So I'm confident that this upcoming update has something to do with the Hungry Ghost festival. It involves foods for the ghost to eat and some candles. I can't explain more because I'm not in that culture. But this is all the information I have for now. Hope this is helpful and if it's true, i apologize for spoilers.

    How do you explain Growganoth then, huh? That's what I thought. All hail Growganoth, devourer of nubs.

    This doesn't sound religious, only cultural. Ghosts are not inherently religious, and regardless, there are ghosts already in growtopia.

    I think they mean like adding shrines that directly reference Chinese culture. The hungry ghost festival isn't just ghosts. It's about feeding your relatives and making them happy so that they don't decide to kill you. As a result there are fire pits and burning sticks since ghosts can only smell and the only way to send something to the Chinese after life is to burn it.

    The hungry Ghost festival is similar to the Day of the Dead festival except Chinese culture. So if DoTD was added, i wouldn't be surprised if HG or Obon festival were added.


    I think it'll be Bon/Obon used for name.

    Doubt it. For hungry host festivals, it's better not for Such things to be incorporated into growtopia. Mainly because once you anger the spirits, something bad might happen. Given growtopia is filled with kids who do not know about it, they may offend spirits unwillingly. Yes harvest festival is sort of related to the Chinese culture, where we eat mooncakes, so this update should probably not be related to the Chinese culture. Such things cannot be joked about, I believe the Developers know about it as well.

    You'd never know...
    They'll probably change it up a bit to make it more child friendly.
    I mean who came up with the idea of pineapple event?
    Ps. I dun like moon cakes since they have eggs inside
