Once you find an egg you can bring it back to Ester to crack it open for Bunny Tickets and other goodies like Geodes, Equipment and even Gold Poop! If you find one of the rare eggs you'll have a chance to get rare items including Fairy Wings, Gems and more!

A Flower Fountain!

Once you get some Bunny Tickets you can trade them for the Easter items or crates by simply going up to the item you'd like and trading the tickets.

Multiplayer Update

Since switching over to Bolt to host our Multiplayer Servers we have noticed a HUGE boost in Multiplayer performance. There have been a couple bugs that have been brought to our attention and this update has addressed them. This includes the bug where some people would get the "Session Connection Failed" error.

We are constantly working on this feature and will be addressing any bugs that come up as we're made aware of them. We appreciate your patience as we tackle Multiplayer.

  •  UI Scaling has been added, and can be found in the Settings under Audio and Video.
  • The Glider speed has been increased.
  • Some items were able to be walked through, those have been made whole again.
  • The size of the icons in the display cases has been increased.

Multiplayer Update!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Apr 13, 2019 at 11:30:26 PM

Version 1.0.8o is live!

.

We have spent the last couple weeks really focusing on the multiplayer bugs and performance and after hours of testing we're glad to say it's looking great!! 

Huge Thank You to our Beta Testers and everyone that has submitted a bug or provided feedback, being such a small team we really appreciate all your support. It's been a ton of fun playing this game with the community and hanging out in Discord

.

 Patch Notes

  • Multiplayer middleware was changed to Photon Bolt. With this change the multiplayer is faster more stable and disconnects are less likely to happen.
  • Now if disconnects happen the game tries to reconnect, and if successful you can keep playing with your friends right from where you left off.
  • Loading and saving have been optimized. Loading times are now considerably faster.
  • Halloween Island is now accessible on multiplayer.
  • Several multiplayer issues have been solved
  • Coal drops have been increased to 3-8.
  • Sprinkler radius have been increased slightly.
  • Glider speed has been slightly increased.

.

While Dan has been working on the multiplayer, Kristina has been writing quests galore as well as working on some new items. The next update we will be working on adding over 50 quests as well as the Spring Festival! This update will also come this month in time for Easter.

The Spring Festival will have an Easter Egg hunt, tons of new items and more! We'll share more on that soon.

.

 If you've caught our streams or have seen us in Discord you might already know that we started working on a HUGE new area. This area will feature 2 towns with quite a few surprises. Did someone say new mounts? ;)

.

 Without giving too many spoilers all we can say for now is we're very excited to start adding some epic content to Garden Paws

We've been having a ton of fun streaming, if you'd like to catch some spoilers or just hang out with devs Dan and Kristina you can find us on twitch at BittenToastGames.

There's quite a bit in this update so we're going to try to keep this short and sweet. 

Sooo let's address the multiplayer bugs first. Multiplayer is our main focus for the next large update. Dan (our programmer) will be replacing the multiplayer middleware. This means a complete revamp of the multiplayer code. As we are just a small team of 3 (Daniel, Kristina and Thiago), please bear with us as we get the multiplayer patched up we definitely want this feature to be as smooth as possible.

Multiplayer Update

This past update we have been heavily focusing on optimization and we're glad to say we've made some improvements. Not only that but we've been working on some bugs. With just a small team of 3, Multiplayer is definitely a big task, but our programmer Daniel has been hard at work on it, and we appreciate your patience and this incredible community as we get it perfect.

While Dan is working on the multiplayer side of things, Kristina has been working on new content and Thiago has been getting the soundtrack together which was just sent out. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Next month we'll continue focusing on Multiplayer as we will be completely move the servers to a new host. Don't worry we'll have an update before we dive into that fill with items like the Crystal Furniture set.
