Happy Canada Day!
Sorry we're a little late with the post for the update that came out a few days ago. If you've been in Garden Paws since July 1st you'll know we released a small Canada Day update and a couple small patches since then.
Dan, Kristina and Thiago are still hard at work on the Dungeon and we plan on having it out this month (July). The dungeon will be optional and you won't be technically "killing" the creatures for anyone that is worried about blood/gore. We can assure you there won't be any, in fact you're helping the creatures move on, from the evil necromancers grasp. The Dungeon will have 100 procedural levels, bosses and new items along with it.
The first thing you'll notice in this update is the mail from the developers (Dan, Kristina and Thiago), we added a couple new skins, the Canada Dragon and Canada Fox. There's lots more to this small.. but large update including the Credits where you can find all the backers names. If you don't see your name here please send us a message, we did have to remove a few that either weren't appropriate or were promotion links. We will be adding a bit more to the credits in the next update, including the community members that made skins for Garden Paws.
New Quests, New Shop and New Items
This update our main focus was squishing bugs and improving the the QOL (Quality of Life) for Garden Paws. We did manage to squeeze in a few new items, another upgrade and over 20 new quests. This brings us to 500 Quests currently in Garden Paws!
The new shop you'll find in Florens is the Fishing Shop. McCoy has been dreaming, and with your help they'll get to run a large shop that can even provide daily shipments of fish, (for a small fee that is..).
New Storage Crates
We have added a few more decorative crates including the Ore/Bar Storage Crate, Gem Storage Crate and two new superior crates. The Superior Seed and Flower Crates have a 30 capacity and are visually unique from the other flower and seed crates.
Paw Path and Animal Display
There are two items with very different functions. The Stone Paw can be used to decorate you're home. The Animal Display can hold 1 animal of any type and display it in your world, it won't drop resources while on display though.
No Harvest Zone
A small but big new item is the "No Harvesting Sign", when you place this item it prevents anyone from harvesting within it's radius.
Quality of Life
With the community's suggestions and feedback, we have made several fixes in this update to improve on Garden Paws.
The Item Shifter can now rotate up/down as well as left/right.
The Inventory has an Auto Sort option, as well as a transfer all button.
Building pieces have a smoother placement.
The range of the Pickaxe and Axe have been increased.
Creative Mode Adjustments and Server Sizes Increased!
At the request of the community we have increased the creative mode lobby sizes from 10 to a whopping 32 people! We have done a few quality of life improvements as well.
The inventory and energy levels have been maxed out.
You can craft anything at a workbench without requiring the materials.
The UI has been adjusted to better fit all the items.
Easter eggs and all non-vegetation items have been removed. (Ex. Boris' cart)
We have added a few new items to the creative mode including the Jetpack, Hourglass (which can be used to pause time or jump ahead/back an hour), and the Sponge (to clean off paint).
In creative mode you are also able to place Trees, Bushes and other foliage.
Bug Fixes and General Tweaks
Some of these bugs came in with the last update but we missed adding them to the update list of fixes.
We were made aware of a hacker today that was able to join Password Protected lobbies, we've changed the server authentication process to prevent this from happening.
The Grid UI now has a scroll bar.
The Crystal Garden centerpiece and divider now have colliders.
Animals that weren't collecting items (Ferrets/Beetles) are fixed.
There's a new in game achievements to track how many Easter Eggs you've collected.
McCoy went on vacation and is now back.
McCoy's new shop holds 3 items and rotates stock daily.
McCoy's Fishing Delivery box has been set up.
Text size in the stat screen has been slightly reduced.
The Shed has a bottom, when naming the shed it will show up in front instead of inside.
Stable animals won't disappear.
Legendary Feed shows up when you tame 100 Beetles.
Temporary items (like the cart and flying carpet) won't disappear the day after in creative mode.
Social Media Links
Want to chat with the developers (Dan, Kristina and Thiago) or this amazing community? Here are some of the best places to find us.
We have also started weekly challenges in the discord for anyone that would like to participate. Last week we did a pool challenge, this weeks challenge is creating a garden.
Tame every animal in Garden Paws AND MORE!
about 3 years ago
– Tue, Jun 25, 2019 at 02:41:09 AM
Our focus for this update is to make every animal tameable and we're happy to say we've done it and we've added MORE animals to tame with great benefits to your farm!
We've updated the taming as well to include the feed the animal likes above their head, as long as you're holding one type of feed.
Foxes, Ferrets and Beetles!
We added the Foxes, Ferrets and Dung Beetles in this update! All with really great uses.
Let's start with the Fox. The Fox can be found in the forest area and can be tamed with Small Fish. You need to pick up a Forest Animal Habitat from Roman the Blueprint Vendor and give the fox a nice home for it to stay with you.
Once you have the fox tamed you can visit it every day to collect some fish, or some poop.
Next up, the Ferrets! The Ferrets are something Kristina, our designer, really wanted to add since she grew up with them. Simply purchase the Ferret Habitat and grab some wool and you can head off to start taming these little ones.
The ferrets can be found on one of the southern islands, or in the ruins. Once you've got them tamed they'll collect all Fiber, Wool, Fur, Feathers and Eggs in the area!
Last but not least, we've added the Dung Beetles! Once you have collected 100 poop you'll be able to build a Dung Beetle Habitat (it's stinking cute!) and craft some Beetle Feed. Once you have some beetles tamed and in their habitat they'll start collecting all the poop within the area the next day!
The beetles come in 6 colour variations, and if you choose to pursue the Beetle Mania achievement and tame 100 beetles, the Legendary Beetle will have a chance to spawn! This Gold Legendary Beetle is even a mount and can be ridden around the map!
You may remember from on of our past updates that we mentioned the Unicorn coming in and we're happy to say that day is today! Call us Unicorn-y but we went with a classic rainbow design, gold horn and ALL the glitter!
The unicorn has a 1% chance to spawn everyday, when you see the rainbow you'll know it's out there, somewhere. BUT you'll only be able to tame the unicorn when you have some Legendary Feed that you get from activating another Legendary to spawn. (Don't worry the fastest legendary to trigger is just by collecting 100 poop.)
The Unicorn, like all legendary creatures, is a little bit faster then regular mounts and a little more ... legendary.
We added some new animals, and some variations to existing ones. Here's a little list of some of the new animals.
Arctic Fox (doesn't show up every season ;) )
Black Cat (tamed with fish)
Mountain Goat (tamed with Hay)
Black Horse (Poppy's Shop)
Pigs and Piglets! (Poppy's Shop)
All sheep can be tamed! (Black, White and Pink)
New Black Bear variation (tamed with Honey)
You can tame the Deer
Want another Barn or 10?
We've heard you want to raise more barn animals. We've added a buildable barn in this update! You'll receive the blueprint in the mail your first winter and you can start building barns to hold up to 4 animals! If you need some Hay we've also included a blueprint for a Drying Rack to turn Tall Grass into Hay.
There are new poop achievements, all the achievements have also been added to the in game menu.
Twitch Integration Update
We've updated Twitch Integration a little bit. Your chat can now type "hype" to pop some confetti (this can be disabled). Chatters also have a chance to appear as an animal in the wild.
We've also added some NPCs to the Town Hall and the Inn. When you enter your chatters will appear as those characters. Chatters can type "dance", "dab", "jump", or "fart" while they're characters in your game!
One last update, people in your chat can choose the character type they'd like to spawn as in your world when they're a customer.
Bugs Fixes and Other Info
The Fish Traps don't get picked up when you harvest from them.
The Flying Carpet and Kart have been added to the Creative Mode.
There is a Crate Workstation, all "Storage Solutions" have been moved there.
There are 3 new poopy achievements.
Creative mode update: The odd buildings have been removed.
The Queue in the oven has been increased from 1 to 5.
The food item that a wild animal wants now appears above their head.
The hippo texture has been adjusted to look less piggy.

A Creative Update with lots of New Furniture, Items and Legendary Animals!
about 3 years ago

Our One Year Anniversary!
If you follow us, well anywhere, you'll know that June 12th was our one year anniversary. Yup that's the day Dan and Kristina started conceptualizing Garden Paws and asked our friend and composer Thiago to be apart of the project shortly after.
We had a TON of fun on Twitch (BittenToastGames), yesterday playing on a 32 player dev server with this great community. We had silly dance parties, explored the procedural dungeon, and gave away prizes around the maze, trampoline jump puzzle and more! It was a great test run to see how our game would hold up with larger server sizes, which brings us to Creative.
Creative is something we've always wanted in Garden Paws, and larger server sizes. We're happy to say the 10 player creative servers are running really well in our limited tests with the help from our beta testers and will be coming live in the next couple hours.
In creative mode you'll instantly unlock all the items and are able to build anywhere and everywhere. There's no town and no quests, just room for you to roam.
Legen... wait for it.. DARY Animals!
Kahuna Chicken and the Big Bunny can be found roaming the islands, once you prove your worth as a tamer of that animal type you'll be able to find them in the wild.
Without giving too many spoilers, a certain achievement might have something to do with it. Want more spoilers we welcome you to our discord that has a #spoilers channel. P.s. Any bugs with the Steam Achievements have been fixed, and new achievements have been added.
2 New Furniture Sets!
Thanks to our designer tier backers we have 2 new furniture sets amounting to over 30+ new items between them. One is a more modern set, the Heverli Set, with pieces including a hot tub, beach umbrella, lounge chairs and a canopy.
The other 20+ piece set is the Crystal Garden Set, which has lots of intertwining wood pieces decorated with leaves and crystals to give you an enchanted forest vibe.
Thank you Hash and Teewie for these sets coming into Garden Paws, we've already seen the community over the moon about them.
Super Crops and Seed Mystery Boxes
With the Seed Bundle Station, you can now combine 4 seeds and 1 Fertilizer to create a Large Seed Bundle. When planting this seed bundle you'll notice it looks a little bit larger than other crops. This Super Crop will yield a seed when harvesting, and you'll have a chance to find a Seed Mystery Box.
Over at Bitten Toast we love Mystery Boxes, how about you? Would you like to see more FREE Mystery Boxes in Garden Paws in the future?
Want to raise more chickens?
We heard the community and how you want more chickens! Once you build the max level coop you'll receive a Chicken Coop Blueprint to start building your own coops. Each coop will hold 6 Chickens or Ducks, and you can build as many of them as you'd like.
Paintbrushes and more New Items
- 3 New Paintbrushes: Colourful Shingles, Dark Colourful Shingles and a Pattern Paintbrush (Don't worry we also think the shingles look a bit like dragon scales.)
- Clothing Workstation (unlocked after completing a certain collection). With this station you'll be able to craft plain white clothing items, and maybe even some new wings. These are great for dyeing your favourite colours.
- Alphabet Workstation with 26 building pieces.
- Square Brick Planters!
- Flower Glider in 3 colours; Red, Purple and Blue, along with a Rainbow Flower Glider.
Accessory items including the butterfly wings, dragon wings.
- A Geode Processor for processing a full stack of Geodes in no time!
- Every update we add just a few new quests and this one is no exception. You'll find new quests with Beltran, the Wanderer and other Florens-ians.
- Twitch integration Update: When your chat viewers show up in your game they can type "dab", "dance" or "jump" to perform that action in your game. (Your chat viewers have a chance to show up in your game if you enable Twitch Integration.)
- New Collections in the Museum!
- Item Shifter update: There are handy colours to help you shift better. Get shifty.
- The main menu now cycles between various Garden Paws scenes.
- The collections now show their rewards.
- Some stack sizes and sell prices of items have been increased.
- Bug Fix: Reset controls to default has been fixed.
- The museum no longer takes full stacks of items.
- Bug Fix: Steam Achievements
Thanks again everyone, we appreciate how supportive you are and all your wonderful feedback this last year. We're excited for what is to come in Garden Paws next!
A Colourful Update! A Natural Disaster, New Gliders, Dyeing Station and lots more!
about 3 years ago
– Thu, May 30, 2019 at 01:43:02 AM
A HUGE update!
First off a HUGE Thank You from the team (Dan, Kristina and Thiago) for all your wonderful support, kind words, reviews (good or constructive) and hanging out with us in discord or on stream. We appreciate this community so darn much! A shout out to our beta testers and everyone that has given advice, suggestions and let us know about any bugs they've found.
There's WAY too much in this update, but it's definitely one of our favourites so far! We've got tons of photos for you, and if you've caught any of our recent streams (Twitch.tv/BittenToastGames) we've been sharing lots and lots.
A Natural Disaster!
If you've already loaded up the game and you noticed a ton of shaking, don't worry, it's not a bug! That's the earthquake that hits (or will hit) middle of year 2. When the earthquake hits you'll be able to help out the townsfolk, (with over 50 quests!), and even help repair the tunnels to open up the Fast Travel between the Town and the Campgrounds.
Tired of getting around on your glider or a mount? With this update you'll be able to work with the miners and repair the mining tracks to open up a fast travel between the town and the campgrounds!
Bees and Bug Catching
Bzzzzzz we've got some news! We have implemented catching bugs (and butterflies with bottles) and you can even have your very own Apiary! Once you get some honey you'll be able to make some cookies and more items in the future! This is the first step towards taming bears, which will be implemented in the coming patches.
Paintbrushes, Dyes, and New Stations!
Let's start with paintbrushes! There are 9 Paintbrushes each with 3-6 colours/patterns to paint your walls, floors and ramps with. These are craft-able at the Paint Station which you can unlock after you purchase it from Roman the Blueprint Vendor.
There are also 9 Furniture Paintbrushes, these are used to paint almost all the furniture, planters and workstations in the game. With this brush you can even paint the Crystal Furniture and the Glass Walls and Floors!
We didn't stop there though! We've also implemented the Dyeing Station where you can dye Clothing Items and Gliders! (Yup you can even dye the Kickstarter items!) Once you've purchased the Dyeing Station blueprint from Roman you can dye anything and everything!
What paint brushes would you like to suggest to add?
You asked for it and we delivered! This is something that wasn't on our radar until the community brought it up and wow do we love it! The Seedmaker is a game changer in Garden Paws, with it you can turn one mature plant into 1-2 seeds!
Sammy will deliver the Seedmaker blueprint to you in the mail on the first day of your first winter. (Don't worry if you've passed the day, you'll still receive the mail.)
There are two new caves in this update, one that you have to find and one that you can open up with the help of the Mayor and the Miners.
After the earthquake has triggered you'll be able to work with the Miners to open up a new cave that will hold a precious new item, the Crystal Geodes!
Crystal Geodes are very similar to the Geodes, but drop Quartz and other crystals.
Another huge thing we've been hearing from the community is to increase the inventory size. In this update Boris has 2 new inventory upgrades available to increase your max inventory by 11 slots!!
Another Inventory related feature we just added is the Craft All button!
There are a whopping 10 New Gliders! Some are patterns on the original, others are more unique including the Flower Glider, Butterfly Glider, Angel Glider and more! All of these gliders can also be dyed to suit your character best! Each Glider can be purchased from Alberto's Shop, the Angel and Butterfly can be unlocked through Alberto's new quest line.
Item Shifter and More New Items!
Without writing a book on this update, we'll quickly sum up some of the other features and items you'll find in this update.
Item Shifter: With the item shifter you will be able to shift placed items left/right, up/down, back/forwards just a little bit. This is to aid in lining up building pieces.
Town Hall: The interior of the town hall has been added!!
New Recipes: Popcorn, Honey Oat Cookie and Strawberry Ice cream!
Guitar! There's a fully playable guitar! Clovis has it in their shop!
Names above people in Multiplayer! Tired of mixing up your friend? Their names will show up above them in multiplayer now!
Flower Planter: Purchase-able at Sierra's Shop after a short quest line.
Roof Building Pieces: There are two new roof pieces that are corner building pieces to create that perfect roof. (Yup there is a new paintbrush to give you a variety of shingle roofs too!)
Paintings! There are 9 Paintings, one is a Sad Cat painting by Daniel Snd, and 8 are screenshots taken in game. The paintings can be crafted at the Paint Workstation.
Are there any paintings you'd like to see in Garden Paws?
Abby now sells Vegetable seeds!
The window building piece has been adjusted to better suit our characters.
Patch Notes have been added in game on the main menu (bottom left).
Seeing as this update is so huge we may have missed some things in the update. We definitely get lost in our work but we are working on recording more of what we're updating in Garden Paws.
Our next step is the Creative Mode as we've got it almost done, you'll probably see that come out early June. Our main focus for June is the Dungeon though!
We have almost everything ready for the dungeon, just need to tie it all together with a nice bow, add some more weapons, monsters and a little bit of everything.
The dungeon levels will be 100% procedural with lots of loot to find and sell in your shop. If you don't want to garden at all you should still find enough loot to progress at a steady pace through the game. If you don't want to go near the dungeon or fight anything you're not going to miss out on any of the main content.
June 12th is One Year Anniversary Community Event!
Dan, Kristina and Thiago started developing Garden Paws June 12th last year (2018). For this very important anniversary we wanted to host a community event on one of our servers for up to 32 people!
The event will go live June 12th at 12PM PST for a minimum of 6 hours. We have a maze, a jump puzzle, and will be doing races to earn prizes! This server is being built by Kristina and the beta testers and will have tons of goodies, we hope to see you there!
If you don't want to or can't join the server we will be streaming it on twitch as well.
Happy Easter! This update is introducing the Egg Hunt, Spring Decorations, Aprons, Crowns and more!
over 3 years ago
– Mon, Apr 22, 2019 at 12:54:37 AM
An Eggcelent Update!
Every day 15 in Spring you'll be able to meet Ester the Easter Bunny in Florens! We hope you like hunting for Easter Eggs because with the help of the townsfolk Ester has hidden 20 Eggs for you to collect!
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!
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.
There are tons of new items to collect! Here's a list of the new items you can find in this update:
Faberge Egg Chest (Red, Green and Blue)
2 Rainbow Dragon Skins
4 New Crowns (Including a Flower Crown and Golden Egg Crown)
18 Aprons (Can be equipped in your accessory slot so you can still wear clothes, if you'd like.)
Pastel Coloured Bunnies (Pink, Green, Blue and Purple)
Egg Flower Centerpiece
Stone Bird Bath
Pastel Coloured Planters (Purple, Yellow, Green and Blue)
4 Decoration Balloons (Red, Green, Blue and Purple)
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.
Other Changes and Improvements
(Some of these have already been implemented in past updates, that we may have missed mentioning.)
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.
Elizabeth now shows what they're selling on the table.
You can now place and remove a stack of 10 Coal/Ore/Sand in the Furnace at once.
The oven bug has been fixed, you can only cook one thing at a time now.
Over the next week we're going to be working on implementing over 50 Quests that will introduce a Fast Travel between the town of Florens and the campground.
Here's some of what you can expect to see in Garden Paws in the next few months:
Procedural Dungeon (optional combat)
A HUGE new island to explore
More Furniture Sets and Building Pieces
Berry Bushes and Fruit Trees
More Animals to Tame and Raise (plus Beekeeping!)
Bunny and Chicken Breeding
More NPC's and Quests
