Hephaestus' Forged Letters

Tomorrow's World, Pt 2.

Well, we're just about ready to put 2008 to bed, so time to look forward to 2009. What will it bring? Who among us can part the murky veil of the future, and tell us what the future holds? No-one - Except the great sage Hephraedamus! In my last blog post, I took a look at some of the technological advances we can expect, today, I'm going to let you take a look at some of the upcoming stuff in-game.

Come with us now, as we gaze into his crystal globe, and see what awaits us!

SPRING - Shanty

Spring should see the release of the new Shanty puzzle. Unlike previous puzzles, Shanty will not be a new activity, rather, an addition to all existing puzzles. As you play duty and crafting puzzles, you will also be able to sing along to the in-game music; your performance in hitting the Shanty notes will boost your performance in the puzzle you're playing.

This will introduce a new level of challenge, and those wishing to maintain their Ultimate ratings will find themselves having to learn whole set of exciting new skills!

SUMMER - Magical Items!

Starting in a summer update, adventurers visiting Atlantis and the Cursed Isles will begin to find in their chests mystical components, which will allow blacksmiths, tailors and shipyards to create clothing and weaponry with magical powers! These rare items will unlock hitherto unknown high levels of play!

Don't be left behind! Be the first to own these essential bonus items, and show off your skills to others!

AUTUMN - Robots!

Previous Halloweens have seen the introduction of zombies, the Cursed Isles, and so forth, and the coming season will be no exception, with the advent of Robots!

Robots will be clanking into the game, and will come in brawling and swordfighting models, as seen above. Robots will also be able to open blacksmithing stalls on vulnerable islands, where they will make more robots, until eventually the island is overrun, and fall to their new mechanical overlords - and only you will be able to stop them!

The crystal globe is misty, but I sense that there may well be a bionic arm injury possible, and possibly a droid pet to follow you around, beeping.

WINTER - Alien Invasion!!!

Not in game, sadly. In December next year, 10 ft lizards with tentacles for legs will invade the Earth. They'll be coming to steal our water supply, and farm humanity for food. We won't stand a chance against them. By early 2010, the dominion of man will be but a distant memory. Sorry to be such a downer. The Robots look pretty cool though, so it's not all bad, right?

Before you start... no, not really.

On the other hand, I believe Cephalopod reads these blogs...

"no, not really."

Despite that, I think we're all going to know who to blame if ten foot tall lizards really DO invade the Earth next year.

I, for one, intend to welcome our new 10 ft. tentacle-lizard overlords.

While it may seem fun for some, Shanty WILL make a large chunk of the population quit on the spot. I probably will, because I CAN'T FREAKING SING!!! It's not that I am mute or something, but how ANNOYING would it be for other people in the house to have to listen to horrible singing 24/7? Shanty should be a whole separate activity. It has to.

The shanty looks fun but will the magical items come in muiltaple colours?

January 03, 2009 at 06:31 PM PST | permalink

Posted by Hephaestus

The most significant change with the magical items will be the introduction of
huge shoulderpads as a clothing item type. The highest level shoulderpads will be large enough to double as a new small vessel type, or housing.

How can the person wearing the shoulder pads get in the vessel/ house then? I guess its a guest house only then

Since it is 2010 now (and none of these have happened), I believe that this is totally accurate.

Ah, perhaps you should consider making fish-bowl boots? I saw it in a movie once and I'm sure it would add to the overall appeal to the item. And you could make the magical upgrades have the fishies turn into cyclopses and blow the other shippies to smitherenes. Just some food for thought ;)

Every person desires sneakers, both to accomplish sport or to appear great. At the moment you might be feeling distraught with all the pair of footwear on your foot, that is out-of-date and banal. They even cause you to truly feel shameful. You would like to be cool to the industry. You want the main focus of warm woman. You want a little something interesting. It really is evident that some sportswear giants are presenting this sort of kicks. Nike Air Yeezy, a Nike new solution introduced new a long time, is a single of them. These kicks, devoid of a doubt quite possibly the most required sneakers in the 2009 trend period, absolutely hold the allure to make you enchanted. These fancy stuffs originally make you amazing. For that reason, you're cool. http://www.cheapairyeezy2.com/
