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!

Welcome to Week 2 - Updates

July 27, 2009 at 3:32 PM 44 Comments

It's amazing that Egg Cave has only been open for 1 week and almost 2000 eggs have been created. Thanks for being a part of the newest and most exciting egghead site on the planet. :) Now... it's time for updates.

New Species - A new, mysterious species has been discovered in Ark. The species has been named Diablos by the Science and Research Center in Ark City. The SARC has seemed to gone a bit happy with the Greek language -- I wonder if the name of the species hints at some of its characteristics and qualities? Unfortunately, the SARC has not determined evolution stages at this point in time.


Emoticons - We now have emoticons around the site. All of your wall comments, blog comments, and profiles can be infused with happiness or evilness -- whatever you please to express. There's a total of 9 different emoticons.


Schedules and levels - Our update schedule has been changed slightly (by a couple of minutes). You can review the newer schedule on our FAQ page. Egg levels are no longer updated in real time either (they are updated once a day at 3:20 am ECT now).

Hunger/happiness - All creatures across Egg Cave are now demanding more food from their owners. If you don't feed your eggs, their happiness will decrease faster than before. And if your creature's happiness slips under 10, every day it'll have a 1 in 30 chance of dying. Don't let this happen!

Egg images - Egg images are now generated 96% faster due to the power of caching. Wh00t!

Introducing EasyCode + Updates

Introducing EasyCode, Egg Cave's newest feature. EasyCode will easily (ha! go figure!) generate code for multiple eggs. This is a lot more efficient than going to each individual "Get Code" page. ;) Try it out and let us know if any of the code comes out wacky. Try and break it!

There have also been some other minor site updates:

  • Your friends list is now alphabetized on the Manage Friends page
  • There is now an option to ACCEPT all friend requests
  • There is now an option to REJECT all friend requests
  • People were able to adopt 11 new eggs per day from the Cave. It was supposed to be 10. Oops. This has been fixed! :)
  • Added border="0" to each HTML code box on the "Get Code" pages (DUH!)
O hai, I has an ugly border.

Remember to report all potential bugs/errors through our Contact form. :) Thanks! This beta is going AWESOME!

Beta Status Update

July 22, 2009 at 9:38 AM 54 Comments

So far our beta has been a major success and the site has stayed online and running without the server crashing. Whoohoo! Thanks for being a part of making Egg Cave the newest and most exciting adoptable egg site out there.

Here are some updates:

  • Fixed the friend request bug
  • Fixed "delete comment" function on walls
  • Implemented a steal limit of 10 eggs per day (from the Cave)
  • Updated many evolution stages for eggs/creatures

Keep reporting those bugs! You guys all rock!

A couple of people have been wondering how to obtain Terron and Calla eggs... and hmm... I wonder how? ;) They don't seem to be appearing in the Egg Cave, now, do they?

July 20, 2009 marks the opening of Bumpwire's newest web site Egg Cave! Welcome all! We're a web site where you can hang out, make friends, adopt eggs, hatch them, level them up, and watch them evolve into more powerful creatures. Our site is completely free too.

Right now we're in a limited beta. This means that we're new and you should EXPECT THINGS to break and not work. Please Contact Us and report all bugs that you find around the site, so we can squash them! You can also get ahold of us if you have any activation issues and/or suggestions.

We're thinking that we'll only have about 500 signups available and they'll go fast, so sign up today. Watch the blog for updates, new creatures, and new things to do. ;)

ALSO -- have a Twitter account? Follow Egg Cave today and we'll "return follow" you. ;)

UPDATE: 100 eggs in less than an hour! These limited beta spots are going to go FAST. :o
