Creature Release Week 2019: Day Two

January 15, 2019 at 12:00 AM 46 Comments


Cryptid Two: Dropalla

The name Dropalla comes from the fact that these vicious, nocturnal bears wait high up in trees and drop down to attack you with their enormously large claws and teeth when you're directly underneath them. Like other cryptids... is their existence really proven to be true though?

Find the Dropalla in the Cave as part of Creature Release Week.


Creature Release Week 2019: Day One

Creature Release Week Begins

If you've never experienced Creature Release Week before, get ready! Each day for the next week, we'll be releasing one brand-new species in the Cave for you to find and adopt. The final day of Creature Release Week is the 8th day, when all creatures are available from the Cave. Will you collect them all?

All creature stages will be revealed at the end of the week. The rest are hidden with the exception of the Hoddel (already known in the CDWC). Cave attempts are increased to 25 per day but will return to the normal 10 attempts per day after the final (8th) day.


What are "cryptids?"

Cryptids are creatures who are rumored to exist but haven't been proven to exist by scientific observation. The Kraken would be an example of this.

Cryptid One: Hoddel

Based off the Hodag, this is the Hoddel. It was discovered by some Arkian scientists in the shallow swamps of Ark. Many thanks to @firedawn for writing the winning CDWC description (the first Hoddel in existence has been added to your account for free).

Don't visit the Cave from your side accounts! This has never been allowed and still isn't allowed during CRW. (It's really easy for us to tell who's abusing multiple accounts and Cave suspensions will be issued to offenders.)

8:19 PM: Cave Attempts Fixed

Cave attempts have been fixed and now allow you to visit 25 times per day without a wait. After that, it's the normal wait time.

Trinkets For Regular Creatures

Trinkets For Regular Creatures

We recently announced that we'd begin releasing trinkets for popular Egg Cave creatures instead of just for monthlies. We hope that you enjoy this change and can benefit.

This month, we have brand new sets of Trinket Travels for the Kujak, Mo, Yazan, and Maser! They're restocking now and are available.

Potion of Rebirth Minor Fix


The Potion of Rebirth wasn't resetting "hatched at" and "immortal at" dates when used. These dates are now automatically cleared when the potion is used.

Players who have used the Potion of Rebirth in the past don't have anything to worry about. These dates will and are updated when the reborn creature reaches its new hatch and immortal dates. It's just that they should be cleared from the start and now are.

All February 2019 Creatures Are From Users

We're proud to announce that, thanks to our amazing players who have submitted their ideas in the Fan Art & Creature Suggestions forum, all of February 2019's creatures that will be released will be user suggestions.

February's have already been chosen. You can begin submitting your March (St Patrick's Day) suggestions now. We're watching the forum! Thanks again to our lovely players!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year from all of us at Team Egg Cave!
Thank you for playing!

New Years Travels

These New Years Travels are now restocking at the Travel Agency! Find yours there today.

January 2019 is Music Month

This month's random theme is MUSIC! Both the creatures and items that'll be released this month will be music-themed. We hope that you enjoy this unique style.

Musical Cash Shop Monthlies

The wings of the Volpe are full of musical notes... we wonder what the song would sound like if it were played. The Faunan plays the piccolo! Find these at the Cash Shop.

Musical Cave Monthlies

The Pekva sings a beautiful song and the Harpette is a harpy that... well... plays a harp! Find these in the Cave for the month of January.

Creature Release Week 2019 Returns

Our annual Creature Release Week event returns later this month. We can't wait to show you what we have in store. Stay tuned for more updates!

New In 2019

We will no longer be releasing Trinket Travels for the brand-new monthlies. Instead, we will be releasing more Trinket Travels for already-existing Egg Cave species throughout the year. We hope you enjoy this upcoming change.

Your favorite species deserve their own Trinkets, too!
