    Default Player Appreciation Week - Dev Diary!

    Happy Player Appreciation Week!

    This is gonna be a good one. I can’t spoil all the surprises of the next few days, but I will say that we always look forward to PAW as a chance to dive into a bunch of different systems and add a lot of goodness to the game. Usually, updates are concentrated on singular areas – Fishing, Startopia, Crystals, etc. – and can’t have far-reaching consequences as a result. At the same time, it’s hard to structure an update around “Lots of random stuff,” because those are a bit harder to plan and aren’t always very interesting as a player.

    This is why PAW is such a genius idea, and we’re always keen to see it roll around. This is an update that is, on its surface, still about a bunch of random stuff, but it has the unifying theme of being stuff that YOU wanted and requested. Now, of course, picking exactly what we’ll add is tough. We work several months in advance, as I’ve mentioned before, so all your cool suggestions from the past few weeks have had to be added to the archive for next year, but we still had tons of cool ideas to choose from.

    Making that choice is a delicate balancing act of pitting feasibility and usefulness against our development cycle, and then assembling 7 days of goodness out of the outcomes. There’s so much cool stuff we wanted to add that we didn’t have time for, but we really hope you’ll enjoy the things we selected. Just today, for instance, you’ll be seeing some major improvements to the PC version of the game with a lot of oft-requested UI upgrades. Ooh, and all-new vending machines to help with vend world management and scam reduction. That, and items. Tons of items!

    You’ve probably also noticed we’re adding new events to Summer Clash. We know you want to see more variety, so consider these the beginning of an ongoing push in that direction – our end goal is to add a whole lot more, covering a very wide variety of activities. I know harvesting, building, etc. can feel a little similar at times, but they’re also easy-to-understand activities that everyone can engage in, which makes them good starting points. Our next step will be to add deeper and potentially more skill-based events as well, but those are much harder to balance (as we all saw with Surgery Stars, which started off way too expensive). In the end, we want a nice, robust assortment of events of differing skill and engagement levels, so stay tuned!

    Also, speaking of tuning, if you’re new to Startopia (or thinking about suiting up for a space mission), we’ve made the first sector much easier. The original goal was to encourage players to equip a new component for their ship so they could see the difference it would make in their skill successes, but we realized that the high upfront cost, combined with even a handful of skill fails, was far too discouraging. As such, it should be a lot easier to find your footing in Alpha Sector now! Good luck, Star Captains!

    Have a great PAW, everyone – the next few days are gonna be jam-packed with goodness!

    Hello Growtopians!

    It's Player Appreciation Week 2018, Day 5!

    Today, Luminous Eyes makes its appearance, along with something far darker and mysterious: the Atomic Shadow Scythe!

    And from now on, a Subscription System is available in the game! You can get a free one simply by watching videos or purchase a paid one from the store! Most importantly, BOTH of them are tradeable! How's that sound for profit potential?

    Also, there are 3 more items for you to discover!

    Our beloved PAW is drawing to a close, but we've saved the best for last! Some super-cool items like the Ring of Nature, Horns of Infinity and many more - including one that really, truly ROCKS - have been added to close out the event, AND we're throwing a never-before-seen sale on the store!

    Hit up the Store now for a ridiculous 20% discount on Gem items and 5% discount on Growtoken ones! Yikes!

    Go find those items, and, of course, visit one for the five SUPERMODDANCEPARTY worlds today and join the celebration with all the Mods! Do the /dance!
