The Mystery of Ghosty

October 25, 2009 at 9:39 AM 415 Comments

Ark citizens have united to help solve the Mystery of Ghosty. No one knows what has been going on recently with Ghosty, nor what any of his random blabberings mean. To help solve this mystery, head over to the Plot Headquarters, where thousands of Ark citizens are joining together to get to the bottom of this. It seems that you must find twelve eggs hidden around the site...

Oh, that sounds like a challenge. Ho hum.

Find the eggs; then Discovery shall find you.

Mysterious Egg Appearances

SPOOKY! Unhatched eggs are randomly appearing around Ark... but get this: these eggs aren't appearing anywhere near the Egg Cave! Who could be possibly responsible for this mysterious misplacement of eggs around Ark?

Tim's Food Shoppe

October 16, 2009 at 2:23 PM 45 Comments

Tim's Food Shoppe is now open for business in Ark City! He'll keep your creatures 100% happy while you're away, when and if you're away. ;) That way, your creatures will never die. Currently, Tim is the only Egg Cave creature that can COOK! Mmmm... something smells delicious...

Link exchange services - part 3

October 13, 2009 at 6:02 PM 57 Comments

A number of users have contacted me and made a very strong case against our ban on link exchange services (if you don't know what this is, don't worry), even in light of my goal (which I posted earlier). As these users have spoken up (which I am thankful that they have), I have discovered that community on Egg Cave can still happen, even with people using these "link exchange services."

Therefore, since I realize that my goal can be accomplished in spite of the use of link exchange services, link exchange services have been unblocked and will be counted towards your creatures stats.

I am leaving discretion in the hands of our users. It should be our users that make the choice. If you don't feel link exchange services are right, then don't use them. If you want to, you may.

Egg Cave shouldn't be a site where users are told everything they can't do. It's up to you. You spoke -- I listened!

On another hand, Tim is preparing to open his Food Shoppe (coming soon):

Adoption center + Punbundu Updates

October 8, 2009 at 9:52 PM 44 Comments

ADOPTION CENTER - You may now abandon three creatures per day at the Adoption Center! The cost is now 4,000 EC. Abandonment is not recommended though!

PUNBUNDU UPDATES - Punbundu artwork (not evolution stages!) have been updated. Most of you will not be able to tell, but we smoothed out the shading for Punbundus and made the lines less sharp/pixelated. Hurrah! We love Alyssa (organismal), one of our artists!

If you own a Punbundu, your creature will reflect the updated art tomorrow when creature stats are updated.

HALLOWEEN BASH - Our Halloween bash preparations are still underway. You won't want to miss it, because a species of creature will be given to those who participate in the bash! And this creature will be available only once a year!

New species + Evolution brackets (again!)

October 5, 2009 at 12:00 AM 74 Comments

Four cool-looking species have been discovered by the Science and Research Center in Ark City!

Additionally, we've updated the evolution brackets for every single creature again. Certain species will be more of a challenge again. :)

UPDATE: These four new creatures will be available year-round, not just October! ;)

Next up: food center! Thanks for being a part of Egg Cave.

Welcome to October - new species brackets

October 2, 2009 at 8:58 PM 71 Comments

Welcome to October! Fall is here (well, only in the northern hemisphere)! Summer is definitely on its way to all of our southern hemisphere friends. :)

We have adjusted the evolution brackets for every single species. The ones above are to be particularly noted for their adjustment. Now, we haven't made it so easy to where Egg Cave is no fun to play! Just a slight adjustment so it doesn't take so long to hatch your creatures.

Also, I should have clarified in my last news post; our bash will be a Halloween bash. October bash. Halloween bash. Same thing. ;) Stay tuned for new species tomorrow (hopefully! that is, if I get my Adobe CS3 fixed!).

Remember this: you all rock! Thanks for being a part of Egg Cave.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, my graphics software is not fixed yet. Hang tight for the species update!

The adoption center is HERE!

September 26, 2009 at 10:40 AM 117 Comments

After a much anticipated update -- IT'S FINALLY HERE! Ark City now has an adoption center. Say hello to Linda the Alkub! She's a kind-hearted soul that likes to find abandoned creatures a home; she's running the Adoption Center.

Hello there! You are welcome at the Adoption Center.


Several of you have noticed that something like 100 EC has appeared in the top user bar. You guessed correctly; that is Egg Cave's new currency called Egg Coins. As of right now, you can obtain EC by feeding your eggs and others eggs. If you want to abandon your creature, it'll cost you a hefty 3,000 EC.

A couple of users have expressed their concern with the introduction of a currency. Some worry that some day the Egg Cave economy will become too user-driven, giving certain users too large of an advantage over others (more eggs, more power, more items, etc). Rest assured that we're going to keep a tight reign on the Egg Cave economy to ensure that the game is fair for everybody, including our newer players.

The FAQ page will be updated with information on the latest features soon. Stay tuned for a massive new species release next week. We also have fun things planned for an October bash, including a new species that will only be obtainable during the bash! You won't want to miss it.
