Research Center Glitch

November 30, 2009 at 6:03 PM 63 Comments

Users were abusing a glitch at the Science and Research Center and "gave" themselves Egg Coins and then re-donated the EC back. This bug has been patched and the current donation amount for the Science and Research Center has been rolled back to before this glitch was discovered.

The myLights competition begins tomorrow! Who's ready?!

Coming December... myLights!

The Travel Agency is now OPEN!

November 25, 2009 at 8:27 PM 69 Comments

We've kept what the Travel Agency will actually do a secret for months, but now it's finally here! The Travel Agency is now open for business in Ark City. Check it out! This is quite possibly the biggest release yet!

Your creatures can now travel to other places on the island and even beyond the island itself! Buy a travel today!


PLEASE NOTE that we will be actively adjusting the rarity of all Travels. We suspect that Travels will be pretty rare right now, but rest assured that they will become EASIER (certainly not harder) to obtain as we perfect our rarity-adjustment algorithm.

Such a kind subsidy!

TOWN HALL - The Town Hall recently donated a generous 25,000,000 EC subsidy to the Science and Research Center to assist with Calla research. The Town Hall also stated that they hope this rejuvenates giving to the sciences.

TRAVEL AGENCY - The Travel Agency also announced that they will be open for business soon!

Oohhh, errr. Yeah. We're busy.

New species discoveries!

November 15, 2009 at 9:22 PM 222 Comments

Five new species have been discovered!


Also, the Science and Research Center in Ark City still needs more funds to continue their research! Care to donate? It needs 500 million EC to continue its research, which they speculate could lead to the genetic reconstruction of the Calla.

Genetic Reconstruction?!

We need 500,000,000 more EC!

There has been an important update from the Science and Research Center! They think that they may be able to genetically reconstruct a Calla from the DNA found within the feather. But it comes with a hefty price tag... the Science and Research Center needs more funding!

Care to help?

The Mysterious Feather

The Science and Research Center in Ark City seems to have discovered a mysterious feather that closely resembles a Calla. Visit the Science and Research Center for the scoop! They are saying it could lead to the Calla's full discovery.

Egg Cave citizens unite!

UPDATE - Research is commencing!

If you completed The Mystery of Ghosty plot, you may now claim your Balrogipuwet here. THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT to claim your Balrogipuwet. We'll leave that link up until every eligible, active player has claimed their Balrogipuwet.

In light of recent events, Cathy at the Science and Research Center has commented on all of this:


Wow, the Balrogipuwet is a rather incredible species! Congratulations on your discovery, Ark citizens! We have received stories from multiple residents explaining their weird encounters with this "Ghosty" creature. Although we denied the existence of such ghosts, the number of stories is overwhelming.

We sincerely apologize and will never doubt the existence of ghosts again!

For those of you who did not complete The Mystery of Ghosty plot, the plot solution is now online and located here.

Thanks again for playing!
