New mods: Meep42 & Sage

Please join me in welcoming Meep42 and Sage to the Community Moderators program.

They've been active for at least the past few months and demonstrated their helpfulness to new players, so I think they'll be great additions!


That’s a lot of gold…

Funding goal reached!

We've reached our funding goal for the Octoberbit promotion!  Thanks so much to everyone who backed the project :)

Next stop: Mac stretch goal!


Hat Vote!

I've created five new hats! Users who have bought at least the 49.99 tier at the Octoberbit Promotion are now able to vote for which hat they'd like to see be the exclusive 49.99 tier hat. The hat that wins the vote will be granted to backers of the 49.99 tier -- it will never again be offered for sale after the promotion ends.  The other hats will be available in-game later.

Note - if you have kicked in $24.99 previously, you can buy an additional 24.99 to get this tier. Yes, that technically adds up to 49.98, but the system will round up in your favor and let you get the hat :)

To vote on the new hat, go to this page.  Hurry - votes will be tallied on the 15th!



Something Exciting Coming Soon…
