Latest Updates from Our Project:

100 Dungeon Levels, Castle, Skunk, Fishing 2.0 and more!
over 2 years ago – Fri, Apr 10, 2020 at 10:36:37 PM

Version 1.3.8 is now live! This update is packed full of content! We're really excited about this update we've added the 100 floors of the dungeon and will continue to work on it for future updates. We have added new tools, furniture sets, a new creature and more! 

We made a small video showcasing this update. If you like the video update let us know and don't forget to share it with your friends. :) We have posted this video on Twitter and Facebook as well.

From the devs..

We, (Dan and Kristina), wanted to let everyone know that we are working on Garden Paws and it is our main focus, we have started the process of getting Garden Paws on the Switch but have no eta at this time. We are also working on Potion Paws at the same time but want to reassure the community that we are working on Garden Paws. 

A little bit about us, we have been making games for years and find we work best with taking creative breaks. Potion Paws and another game we recently made (Farting with Friends) allow us to be creative without feeling burned out. (Yup we're weird, our breaks are us working on other games.)

We are just letting the community know as we've seen some concerns brought up that we're working on multiple projects at once. We understand your concerns, but rest assured we are giving 110% to both games.

P.S. If you want to download "Farting with Friends", for free you can do so here. It's a multiplayer game we made in a couple days where you play as a cute skunk, (yup the one coming into Garden Paws), and your goal is to knock out your friends by farting on them. During these hard times we find it's a great silly game to play with friends, so we wanted to share it with everyone.

Sorry for the rambling, let's jump into this update.

The Dungeon is complete! ...kind of

The new Ice Dungeon features new versions of the old enemies and a whole new Furniture Set!

In this update you can now play past the first 10 dungeon levels all the way up to level 100! We have added the Ice Furniture set, a snazzy Ice Cape and an Ice Wand that does a little bit more damage.

You can play up to level 100 and you'll notice environmental changes and stronger monsters as you progress but we haven't added all the bosses, furniture sets and monster variations yet. We plan to expand on the dungeon in future updates.

A little tip for dungeon divers that want a challenge, try shooting the mushrooms on the right when you enter dungeon from smallest to largest. Or was it from largest to smallest, it was one of those two options. By doing so you'll enter hardcore mode where you will have less hp and the monsters will be stronger, but hey more loot!

Birch Trees and Bee Hives

Plant your own Birch Trees!

We are pretty excited about a new gameplay feature, growing your own Birch Tree Farm! Once you have built the Tree Farm for Bruce, they'll be able to start selling you Birch Tree Saplings! It will take several days for the tree to mature, but once it does you can chop it down for Birch Wood and a chance for rare item drops.

Bee keeping will feel even more complete with your own Bee Hives

The rare items you can get range from seed mystery boxes to bee nests. The Bee Nests are a new item you can use to craft your very own Bee Hive! This hive acts similar to the natural occurring bee hive, where you can gather a honey or honeycomb once a day. We heard you want less of a honeycomb grind, we hope this helps.

Birch Furniture 

Now that you have all that Birch Wood you can use it to craft one of the many new, and profitable Birch Furniture items! These items can be painted with the furniture paint brushes, and when painted they'll be in soft pastel colours.

There are some new Birch Bonsai Trees and other great new items to find in game.

New Upgrade: The Castle

Your own castle right in the heart of Florens!

Once you have commissioned all of the town upgrades you will be able to commission your very own Castle from Frank! The Castle comes with plenty of room for your building needs, a new workbench with new castle furniture and even a special pet!

By purchasing this upgrade you're also showing you're the best and the mayor has granted you permission to build anywhere in and around the town.

New Upgrade: Cosmetic Tools Shop

Cosmo will sell different cosmetic tools every day!

Once you have upgraded your tools to Gold you will be able to invite Cosmo to open a shop in Florens. Cosmo will sell variations of the gold tools with a cosmetic flair.

There are currently 20 cosmetic tool variations for you to purchase in styles ranging from ghost to flowers and more. We plan on adding more tool variations in the future, let us know in the comments what kind of tool variations you would like to see.

New Creature: The Skunk

Skunks are so cute!

Remember that game "Farting with Friends" that we mentioned? When we made the Skunk character we fell in love with it and had to add it to Garden Paws.

Not only this creature is really cute, it's also useful in your farm. Once tamed the skunk will drop lots of poop and even fertilizer.

The Skunk can be found in the forest biome, is tamed with chicken eggs and will be at home in the Forest Animal Habitat.

Fishing 2.0

With the Gold Fishing Rod fishing gets faster and better!

We have made some tweaks and improved fishing, starting with two new upgrades! The Silver and Gold fishing rods will reduce the catch time and increase your odds to collect rare fish, while decreasing your odds of collecting trash.

We have added a few new rare fish for you to hunt down as well, these fish are too pretty eat but they sell for some nice coin.

Want more trash? The Trash Fishing Rod is for you!

There is also a new Trash Fishing Rod that is by far our favourite. It will only hook bottles, soggy paper, fertilizer, glass, seaweed and have a rare chance for mystery boxes and other "trash" items that we're sure you're going to enjoy.

The Fishing Experience has also been improved with a rare chance for mystery boxes to pop up while your fishing.

The gamepad has some significant improvements to make fishing more enjoyable and relaxing. When you use the gamepad you simply pull the joystick in the direction of the fish and click to catch it.

Let us know what you think in the comments!

New Item: Stone Sprinkler

Stone Sprinkler will be an alternative to watering the plants in early game!

After seeing some gameplay and hearing feedback from the community we've noticed the sprinkler can be hard to obtain early game, if you're not looking for it.

To make the game more enjoyable your grandparents have sent the Stone Sprinkler Blueprint in your first Summer in Garden Paws. It will act the same as the copper sprinkler in terms of radius, but will require different resources to craft.

We hope this makes the game less of a grind and more enjoyable for those looking to start Garden Paws again from the beginning. :)

There are too many emotes so... Emote Wheel!

We had a bit of fun making some new emotes, but found we had too many and forgot to tell people about them in general. (What you didn't know you could fart with ".", have a chance to poop and then sell it to your customers? Yeah we added that crucial feature.)

The Emote Wheel will help you express yourself quicker in the game!

If you hold down Z an emote wheel will pop up! The emote wheel features the emotes we already had in the game plus 2 new emotes, the wave and the pout!

Gamepad Improvements

As a part of the Switch porting process we've been reworking the Gamepad controls for Garden Paws. This update should fix a lot of the gamepad issues pointed out by players and improve gamepad gameplay overall.

If you find any problems with the gamepad play please let us know so we can address the problem. 

Other notes:

We possibly missed some of the updates and bug fixes we did for this update, but here's some of the stuff we did that we remembered to write down.

  • Several multiplayer issues have been fixed.
  • Copper, Silver and Gold sprinklers radius' have been slightly increased (to a 20% larger radius). The stone watering size is slightly smaller than the copper.

Combat Island, Butterfly Garden, Fruit Tree Seedmaker, Feeding Trough, Fish Drying Rack and more!
over 2 years ago – Sat, Jan 25, 2020 at 07:53:33 PM

Tons of new items and QOL updates!

This update is a pretty exciting one as we've included quite a few epic features. Our favourite being the Auto Deposit feature which will allow you to deposit items into a chest without opening it. Another huge QOL update are the improvements to the crafting system. Now you can click an item and craft it's prerequisites without switch tabs.

Auto Deposit feels so satisfying!

We apologize if we missed listing any new items or bug fixes. Other news, the Switch version is currently being worked on and we appreciate your patience as we get it to the best state we can. The Steam Workshop update is coming along way faster than we initially projected, we will have more news on that soon. If you would like to join the beta workshop we have more news on that in our discord.

There were also many many tweaks made to improve performance in this update, our initial feedback has shown huge leaps in performance. If you are experiencing problems though we have found reinstalling the game through steam and verifying game files fixes many. If you come across any bugs please let us know through steam discussions, or discord. Thank you!

Don't forget to open Garden Paws during the holidays to get something special from us!

Fruit Trees and Berry Bushes!

Fruit Trees!

Apples, Oranges, Lemons, Cherries, oh my! There are 4 fruit trees that can be found around Florens and the nearby islands. Each season there will be a new tree type in the wilds, if you don't want to wait for the wild fruit trees you can plant your own. Each tree even has a rare chance to drop seeds when being harvested.

 These new fruits can be used in one of the many new cooking recipes at the cooking station or oven. There's more! You can now find Blueberry Bushes in the wild as well!

Blueberries can be used to craft a variety of items!

Potion Paws Crossover Items 

A rainbow dragon riding a Cat Ghost, what next!?

We're happy to say we've added the Potion Paws crossover items. We added even more items then we originally set out to add. There are 26 furniture items to decorate with! You may even find the Cat Ghost mount lurking in a cave that you can befriend with some stardust!  You can tame as many of these as you'd like.

If you own Potion Paws in the same Steam library as Garden Paws you'll receive in-game mail containing the Mysterious Potion Table blueprint. Once you've crafted this workbench you'll unlock the rest of the Potion Paws crossover items.

Custom Painting and Carpets

We've added two new items that can be painted with the wall paintbrushes. This will open up over 60 painting variations and 60+ carpet styles. This upgrade can be purchased from Roman after you've unlocked the Painting Station.

So many options to choose from!

Building System Update!

The Building System received a huge improvement in this update. When placing a piece, using the hammer or the item shifter there is now an option for opening a "Selector". When in selector mode your mouse is visible and you can mouse over different buttons on the UI to select what socket or building piece you want to interact with.

Using the Selector to place foundations exactly where you want them.

This makes it easier to build faster and make less mistakes. It also makes mistakes easier to fix since with the new selector menu you can hammer out even the hard to select things like the sprinklers.

Selecting items with the item shifter is a breeze now!

Pamela's Trading Center

Pamela has lovely items to trade with you

Pamela's Trading Center has finally opened its doors to the people of Florens. You can find the big tree trunk on Ferret Island. Inside you will find Pamela the Unicorn. Pamela doesn't use coins and instead prefers trading items for their wares.

What's next for Garden Paws?

We've got big plans for Garden Paws including adding more levels to the Dungeon, and even a huge new island to explore and more! We welcome you to join our discord or follow our twitter for spoilers as we work on them.

Even more challenges will be coming to the Dungeon soon! (Gif thanks to April on the Discord)

We originally set out to release Garden Paws on the Switch this December, but have to ask the community to wait a bit longer so we can get the game to be the best it can be without rushing. We hope you understand we are working our hardest to get the game to the Switch without cutting content we would love to see in Garden Paws.
