Have you entered the Fan Art Contest?

.

Submit your drawings (digital or hand drawing), or other forms of art to us through Twitter using #GardenPawsContest or through Facebook by clicking here.

The dev team (Dan, Kristina and Thaigo) will go through the top 5 with the most likes by the community and pick one that will win a full copy of Garden Paws Alpha

Or maybe we will post as an update and let the community vote and see all the beautiful art as well! What do you think?

Legendary Animals continued

On Update #9 we announced working on the Legendary Animals and got some incredible ideas and suggestions that we wanted to share with you!

There were so many incredible ideas! We especially love the Strawberry Milk Cow, (we're thinking you have to feed the strawberry cow strawberries everyday to tame, and keep feeding them everyday otherwise to yield strawberry milk)!

There are so many incredible ideas, thank you so much for commenting them and please keep them coming! 

(A few of the many great ideas we saw include: Jeweled Tortoise, Cotton Candy Sheep, Gold Variants, Flying Pig.)

If you caught the stream last night by Kristina, you may have seen her working on the Tortoise and Dragon! (To stay up to date on streams please join our Discord.)

We also got some incredible fan art back from TheStarBear (DeviantArt) for the Unicorn! This will be the legendary counterpart to the Horse! With a lot of hard work and it's favourite treat, you will be able to tame the Unicorn!

 .

Elemental Legendaries

We also received a lot of suggestions for elemental creatures and are definitely thinking about doing elemental creatures in the future! The Phoenix being the Fire variant to the bird! 

Here is some more incredible fan art by TheStarBear of the pheonix and fire horse!

Game Updates

This update isn't just about Legendary Animals though, since releasing the demo we have received so much valuable feedback

With the community feedback we have been doing bug fixes and making the game more enjoyable for everyone. Including adding a visual tutorial!

Not many people like playing through a long tutorial, or may forget how to play after putting the game down for a few days/weeks/months. Don't worry, your grandparents will save the day

At the start of the game your grandparents will send you mail with a visual tutorial attached, from there it will always remain in your game notes if you ever need a refresher.

Here are two examples of the visual tutorial, these aren't the final versions but as always we wanted to share our progress with the community

.

A few other notes from the devs...

We are probably sounding like broken records but we are so thankful for everyone that has supported us in making Garden Paws a reality. It's been a very busy few months, and we're sure will be a busy but rewarding 2019.

We have been hard at work implementing the Multiplayer, and it's coming along really well! We will update everyone in a day or two, (before the kickstarter ends), to confirm if it will be in for the Alpha release.

Our current game ready for alpha has 30+ hours of questing, farming, shop-keeping, raising chickens, some crafting and some building. (Oh and Twitch Integration.) But we aren't stopping there, we'll have lots more ready for you!

Our focus this month+ is to smooth out the building, as well as adding furniture and multiplayer. We will also be working on the gorgeous steampunk "Exclusive Kickstarter Glider" and the other Kickstarter exclusive items.

Furniture and Crafting Stations
about 4 years ago – Tue, Sep 04, 2018 at 11:50:23 PM

One aspect we really like in Garden Paws is the ability to customize your environment. We are working on several different pieces of furniture that you will be able to craft and place.

.

Today we wanted to share with you a couple of different crafting stations that you will be able to use to craft different items.

.

The Flower Workbench will be used to craft bouquets, flower headbands, seed bundles, flower decorations and much more.

.

In the Cooking Station you will prepare delicious meals that may have added benefits like speed boost and more.

With different crafting stations we hope to make your life easier by making the crafting lists more organized. With over 200 crafting recipes currently planned out, it's good to have some organization.

More on Legendary Animals!

With our first stretch goal being hit we are working on the first 3 Legendary Animals! We mentioned before that these will be rare counterparts to the current common types you see wandering around Garden Paws.

Note: ALL animals that you see in Garden Paws will be tameable for the full release. (Spirits in the dungeon, will remain untameable.)

With the help of an incredible artist, TheStarBear (DeviantArt), we have our first concept art for the Rock Fox!

Other Legendary possibilities that we are thinking of include:

about 4 years ago – Sun, Sep 02, 2018 at 01:12:06 AM

Easter Egg Hunt!

We have received an overwhelming response, from the community, for the egg hunt to be the Spring mini-game! We created way too many eggs and need your help choosing the 5 best ones to be in the egg-hunt!

.

Every participant that participates in the egg hunt will receive a prize according to the amount of eggs and the rarity of the eggs that they gather. The eggs will vary in value when you sell them in your shop depending on their rarity. 

The eggs can also be cracked opened to reveal the goodies the townsfolk hid inside when they were painting the eggs. Watch out, there could just be rocks or poop inside, or you may get lucky with a rare item! 

.
Which eggs are your favorite?
Choose your top 5 and vote in the comments below!

 .
