Egg Cave is quite the happening place! Visit our blog for the latest updates on everything new that we add to the site — new creatures, exciting worlds, account updates, and unique activities to do!
These baked Catci are... adorable in any shape or form, right?! New from the Bakery.
The VEND Machine has been updated to where you can purchase a creature directly with your quest tokens, as opposed to having to purchase a randomized pool where the outcome is not guaranteed. The VEND Machine now guarantees the creature you're purchasing, leaving nothing to chance when you're questing and collecting.
There are now 94 creatures currently available at The VEND Machine. The creatures that were originally available in a prize pool are now available as individual creatures. Previously retired VEND Machine creatures have also come back!
Creatures that are currently available at The VEND Machine will have "Available at The VEND Machine" listed as their availability status in the Archives as opposed to something less helpful like "Retired."
Creatures that you can purchase with your on-hand tokens right now are highlighted in green at The VEND Machine.
There are 17 creatures that are newcomers to The VEND Machine. They've never been available before at The VEND Machine. They're mostly Cave monthlies from 2013 and 2014, with two from January of 2015. They are: Kinka, Zubflug, Nilby, Heims, Pami, Vulpselle, Lotty, Barthug, Borro, Curcull, Candit, Harpis, Jelal, Mystic, Sweesh, Eftsala, and Grandinum.
Token costs have been updated for all creatures at The VEND Machine. All token costs target the same range of approximately 50 to 100 tokens per creature—the same as before this update—split up among the different types of questing tokens.
This means that token costs have neither risen or fallen on average, but have simply been reshuffled for each creature. Since this was a transition from pools to purchasing individual creatures, please understand that it was impossible for us to keep the requested token types the same for whatever creature you may have been working on collecting.
Let us know what you think of this update in the comments section! Do you think you'll begin questing again, if you had stopped?

The highly-coveted and legendary Mimic and Reep will be returning and unvaulted next month in October. They will be 1000 CC each.
Introducing the Catcus from @prairie! This creature is available in the Cave through the remainder of this month and then becomes available in the Cash Shop in October for 200 CC in case you didn't get enough.
These new coffee concoctions are now available at the Bean Sack.
Dedicated to the Hyacine, these new ice creams are now available at Finley's Flavors.
All creatures can now be the Non-Binary gender on Egg Cave. This is represented by the circle symbol on their creature image.
As part of this update, gender icons on all creature images have been updated with the new gray circle icon representing the non-binary gender.
Obtaining a creature of a certain gender now has a weighted, random chance on Egg Cave. It is different for each species. You can view which gender profile a species has in the Archives and find an individual species.
Gender Profile Chances
Gender profiles have been set based on what might make the most sense for that type of creature. The Genderless gender profile typically applies to object-like creatures that don't suggest the presence of gender. Gender profiles and their chances are now published in the Cave & Adopting area of the Player Guide.
In places around Egg Cave where you have the ability to select a creature's gender in advance, you can now select Non-Binary as a gender. This applies to places like the Creature Labs, Cash Shop, and future site event Prize Shops (among many other places such as The VEND Machine). Non-binary is now another gender option. Random is still an option if you're feeling fiesty—selecting "Random" has a 33% for male vs female vs non-binary.
Like the Mars Stone and Venus Stone, there is the brand-new Non-Binary Stone that can transform any creature to Non-Binary. Like the other stones it's 100 CC. Looking to have a specific type of collection? This is how.
This is the very beginning of our new gender profile system. If a species looks wildly off to you for its set gender profile, please submit a ticket with your feedback.
It's the second Sunday of the month... for today you can earn double the Egg Coins for feeding creatures everywhere on the site. So, start visiting your friends' profiles and take advantage of it!
With Egg Cave pressing nearly 1,000 creatures (almost!), it's time for an update to Coves. All players who currently have less than 500 Cove spaces have been upgraded to 500 Cove spaces—minimum! This is the new, default Cove space amount for all registered players.
The way that Cove space costs are calculated have also changed. Your new upgrade cost for buying a Cove space is now based on the new default of 500 spaces. This is, in essence, a price adjustment for the cost of upgrade. Enjoy the discount if you're already beyond 500 spaces. New spaces are now cheaper for you than what you were paying previously.

The VEND Machine is a new label listed in the Archives under Obtained From. See all creatures that could be obtained from The VEND Machine (past and present) by clicking this label here.
