Free NFTopets Say Goodbye
Bad news! We've decided that our free NFTopets project has run its course, and we will be shutting down our NFTopet server on Sunday, November 7th. That means your NFTopets will no longer be accessible, so make sure you right click and save as if you're attached to any of them. Don't worry, your NFTopets are still yours! We're just not going to show you what they look like anymore! (We're staying true to how many NFT projects run their course.)


Our anti-Neopets Metaverse landing page will remain up and accessible at jellyneo.net/nfts. We just won't be allowing the minting of new NFTopets on the 7th.

Legends and Letters: Crossover Week Returns(!?!)
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 31, 2021, 7:18 pm NST


An unexpected Crossover Week has begun in the Legends and Letters mobile app! That means that challenges in the app are awarding item prizes on Neopets.com each day this week until Sunday, November 7th 4:00 PM NST.

However, the app has long been removed from the various mobile app stores. If you do not have Legends and Letters already downloaded, you will not be able to add it back to your phone. You may be able to find it and redownload it in your "Previous Purchases" in the app store if you're on iOS.

We are unsure on whether the Neopets.com rewards will continue to be available throughout the week, or whether they will be shut off again once TNT gets into the office on Monday—but in the meantime, if you log in now and complete today's challenge, you'll get at least one new Sturdy Chest.

Since this was unexpected, it is unknown whether or not the avatar and trophy upgrades are available this week, as those have seemed to need manual action from TNT to award. (It's unlikely they will be awarded.)

Oddly, this happened last year in 2020 around the last Sunday of October as well, after the game had its Crossover Weeks turned off.

For a rundown of the challenges and prizes...

Visit Count Von Roo
To celebrate, Count Von Roo is awake all day long on October 31st, allowing Neopets to play Deadly Dice with him. If you'd like to gamble for a few levels, go for a visit!

JumpStart Hiring for Match-3 Game
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 29, 2021, 2:49 pm NST

UPDATE: It looks like the Art Coordinator position below is not specifically for a match-3 game, but rather simply to assist with Neopets in general!

A statement by Gutterfoot:

also it's my fault that match-3 verbage was left in there... i'm too tired and didn't remove the bullet points for a game design position we have up FOR the match-3 project haha WHOOPS

The game design position is for the match-3 project, however.



Two relatively new job postings from JumpStart are seeking a Game Designer (already closed down to new applicants), along with an Art Coordinator.

Both positions The game designer position requests familiarity with match-3 style games (think Ghoul Catchers, Sutek's Tomb, Candy Crush, etc.).

For the game designer:

JumpStart is looking for an experienced, highly motivated, and collaboration-orientated Contract Game Designer with experience in free-to-play and narrative-driven Match-3 games. As a Contract Game Designer, you’ll be responsible for creating Match-3 mechanics and laying out the progression of the games’ chapters. You must be able to show creative abilities, design knowledge (rational design, iterative process) as well as being able to give guidance to other designers on the team concerning the Match-3.

Our ideal candidate is passionate about a broad range of genres and platforms, but specializes in Match-3 and puzzle games with an understanding of what makes them fun.

Familiarity of Neopets (game, culture, and brand) is a major plus!

And for the art coordinator:

JumpStart is looking for a creative Art Coordinator with 2D/3D design experience to assist in creating, managing and communicating outsourced art assets for projects under the Neopets brand umbrella! The ideal candidate will have effective visual communication and technical skills and be driven and inspired to excel within a fun, collaborative, and agile creative team.

Vast knowledge of Match-3 games and the free-to-play market
A passion for mobile games, Match-3, and narrative puzzle games is a must!
[Accidentally included in the job posting by JumpStart]

You may remember that TNT has been surveying Neopia about their thoughts on a new match-3 game for the past year. There was a survey in July 2021, and a smaller visual survey with Petpets in August 2020.


In addition, an August 2021 earnings report from NetDragon (the China-based parent company of Neopets), showed a possible teaser of what the game will look like:


The report above indicates that the game will be released in the "2nd half of 2021," but we're quickly running out of 2021 and the fact that employees are just being hired for the project seems to indicate that we won't see this for awhile.

If Neopets were to release a new match-3 game, what sort of theming would you like to see? Let us know in the comments.
