Spooky Sweets!

CandyCornGhostBlogGIFStrange ghosts have appeared, holding even stranger… candies? Candy Ghosts will flee, leaving behind their Halloween Surprise Candies if you capture them! These ghosts will only be around from now until Halloween is over, so get to collecting!

Halloween Surprise Candies may give you a very nice treat when you crank that handle, or they may not be so nice. You’ll never know until you give it a turn!

Krafties wishes everyone a fun-filled, safe Halloween. Have fun!

Introducting Flash Events!

FlashEventAppNoticeBlogPicThe very first flash event is happening now! These mini-events will happen randomly and provide a variety of perks or bonuses to players! Players will be alerted to the events via notices in the apps when they are happening. The current flash event gives double healing experience for the entire duration, but who knows what the future holds?

We’re always trying to keep you guys on your toes here at Krafties. Enjoy this new addition, and have fun!

Beginning The Ad-Venture, and Pumpkie Returns!

Beginning soon Krafties will be experimenting with advertisements showing in different areas of the game and site. These ads will be strategically placed in parts of the game so they’ll be completely non-intrusive, and hopefully flow seamlessly with the gameplay. We will of course be listening to player feedback along the way to make the Krafties experience the best it can possibly be!

These ads will only show in select apps where they make sense. Most notably we’ll be moving towards ad based apps for players to collect their daily energy from the chest and spinner. Alongside this, the Packaging apps and NPC Shop apps seem like likely candidates for ad integration.

Eventually, we’d love to start offering in-game rewards for players who opt-in to viewing sponsored video ads, such as bonus energy or other neat prizes (akin to a huge number of popular mobile games). Let us know what you think!

And uh, is that a Pumpkie I see? Looks like they’re back! Pumpkies will begin spawning within 24 hours, or you can rerez your Home Temples to see them immediately.

Be on the lookout for some very cool stuff coming up in the near future. There’s an update to creature attachments that will be available soon, giving the creatures much more realism and expression. We’re always working on new features and content, and this new change should allow Krafties to expand faster and further!

Thank you all for supporting Krafties. Have fun!

Koalie Arrives!

KoalieBlogImageA new Kraftie has appeared, the next addition which was named and voted on by players like YOU: the Koalie! These exotically coated creatures spend most of their time lounging about in the wild, but when paired with a handler they have proven themselves to be quite formidable. Though they may not go out of their way to do much, you don’t want to be in the way when these versatile creatures get to moving.

In order for Koalies to begin spawning, rerez your home temples or wait 24 hours!

To celebrate this new arrival, Krafties is holding an extra long boosted affinity weekend! From now until the end of Sunday, all captured creatures have a much higher chance of having that rare affinity you’ve been after.

We hope you all enjoy the new creature and look forward to some very exciting new features soon! Have fun!

Krafties Market App, New Packages, And Invitation Boxes!

InviterBoxBlogPicTwo new additions to the world of Krafties are here, Invitation Boxes, to replace Stone Rexies, and the new Market system!

Krafties Invitation Boxes can be placed anywhere, and they’ll invite new players to Krafties in lieu of you inviting them personally. All a potential player has to do is click the box! And don’t worry, you still get the invitation reward as if you invited them yourself. The inviter boxes slowly rotate, and have the included image plastered to the sides. These boxes will also give out copies of themselves, so anyone can grab a set. To get one, simply click a Krafties Invitation Box (like the one in the entrance of the shop on the main sim) and select “Get Inviter” from the drop-down menu. 

That brings us to our newest feature, the Krafties Market App! There’s a HUD update inside a new Necessity Pack (v4.045) available on the main sim, or you can have the new pack auto delivered to you by wearing an older version of the HUD. Located on the new HUD you’ll see this icon:

MarketIcon

Clicking the icon opens the Krafties Market App, where you can search through bonded creatures, unbonded creatures, souls, and items that have been put up for sale by other players! The app allows you to search for specific species, elements, elemental affinities, or items and filter them by how recently they’ve been added or their prices. Not only does this new method allow you to easily find exactly what you’re looking for, but it allows you to view all of the relevant details of a product by simply clicking on it. If you like what you see, teleport to the package and buy it in-world!

To place items in the Market App, new bonded, unbonded, soul, and item packages are available on the main sim (v4.045). In order to use this new market feature you must be using one of the newer packages to package your goods, but older packages will still function if you don’t want to take advantage of the app. For your goods to show in the Market App, the package must be set for sale in the app itself, and the “Show In Krafties Market App” checkbox must be ticked. 

Along with the marketplace checkbox, the new packages come with a few powerful new features. You can modify the prices and the “Show in Krafties Market Search” setting after packaging, along with the ability to price items at fractions of an L$ per unit! These changes should make things MUCH simpler for both buyers and sellers alike!

We hope you all enjoy these additions, and look forward to many more surprises and features coming up in the near future. As always, have fun!

Slime Guide Saves The Day, and Boosted Affinity!

SlimeGuideBlogImageA very helpful little guide has appeared in the apps, here to aid you on this wonderful, if sometimes daunting, journey. As players interact with the apps they’ll see these tips slide into view. They describe exactly what certain apps do, and go deeper and deeper as players interact with different features.

While newer players will benefit from this helper, more experienced players may not want the constant reminders on how to play. For these Krafties pros we’ve added a checkbox in your Player Profile, located in the Home App, that allows you to turn the guide on or off. Alongside this option there’s another addition: “Reset Guide.” This button will reset all of the tips the guide has given you already, allowing players to revisit tips they may have missed or want to brush up on.

While this guide may seem to be giving obvious information at first, he will be a helpful tool with some of the newer apps set to be released very soon. And of course the easier and more welcoming we make the experience for newer players, the more our wonderful community will grow!

To celebrate this arrival, Krafties is holding a Boosted Affinity Weekend! All creatures captured from now until the end of Sunday will have a much higher chance of having a rare elemental affinity.

We hope you enjoy the new addition and the special weekend event! Have fun!

The Eternal Struggle Arrives

LightDarkBlogImageSunday is here! But not just any Sunday… On this particular day of the sun a very special event takes place. The forces of light and dark have arrived on this plane, bringing their eternal struggle with them! Darkness beckons you ever closer, while light commands attention with brilliant radiance. Which calling will you heed?

Like the forces they channel, light and dark souls are inextricably linked. As the light shines brighter, the shadow it casts becomes ever darker and focused. In this way, light and dark creatures have push and pull embedded into their very nature. As more light type creatures are active, dark type creatures become stronger and light becomes weaker. And as more dark type creatures become active, light type creatures become stronger. The ebb and flow of power begins!

To facilitate this new mechanic power augmentation has been introduced and added to the stats output of creatures. For light and dark creatures this value will constantly be in flux as players in the game are actively using the new types. Power Augmentation affects all aspects of spell casting and attacking, including combat, healing, and mental spells. A positive power augmentation greatly aids your creature, while a negative power augmentation hinders it.

On top of power augmentation, light and dark creatures have another very special quality. Each individual creature specializes in a particular stat, and can either cast immense buffs (Light type creatures) or fearsome debuffs (Dark type creatures). This means that two light type, or two dark type, creatures using the same spells can have completely different effects! The buff/debuff type is dependent on the creature the soul is bonded with, and can be one of any of the eight stat types. One dark creature may have a strong attack debuff effect, while another might have a crafting debuff.

In order to craft these new souls, players will need either 1 Sunpearl or 1 Moonpearl (which can be obtained from battling wild creatures or giants),  a level 10 creature, and 500 energy (375 with a gold membership). 

Players will now notice that the “Special(+)” and “Special(-)” elemental affinity type creatures they have been catching during the birthday week have become Light and Dark type affinities, respectively. When matching an elemental affinity to a soul, light and dark type creatures are granted fierce new eye types which embody their element. These eyes are not available anywhere else, and cannot be obtained any other way.

There’s a new necessity pack (v4.041) available behind the shop on Krafties Island, or players can wear an older version of the creature attachment to have it delivered automatically. This new pack includes the changes for power augmentation, as well as a few minor internal changes to the creature attachment.

Here at Krafties we’re always working hard to bring you new content and fun! We hope you’ve enjoyed the birthday week so far, and can’t wait to see all of the cool new light and dark creatures out and about. There’s lots more to come, and even more after that! Have fun!!!

Krafties Birthday Cake Returns!

Krafties Birthday Week-Long Event!

4thBirthdayBashBlogPicOur fourth birthday event is here! This time around we’re doing a week long celebration full of surprises and fun. To kick it off, starting today and lasting for seven whole days we’re holding a jam packed super event consisting of boosted combat xp, boosted affinity, and double crafting xp! You’ll get 50% more combat xp while battling, have much higher rates of catching creatures with elemental affinities, AND all crafts will yield twice as much crafting experience.

On top of that, players may have noticed that two mysterious new elemental affinity types have appeared today. The “Special(+)” and”Special(-)” affinities will occur with more frequency throughout this special birthday week, and their true nature will be revealed during the event. Be aware that these creatures cannot yet be bonded! Once the veil has been lifted, the ability to bond them will be unlocked.

Be on the lookout for even more surprises coming up this week and in the future! Thank you all so much for all the support and love we have received from the community for the past 4 years. Here’s to much, much more to come as Krafties continues to develop and evolve. We love you, have fun!
