Help the Snuffly find its way through the treacherous Ice Caves. Dodge falling stalactites, icy crevasses, bone-chilling water, and menacing Gabars while leading your Snuffly to safety! Collect the gems, but tread carefully - that ice is slippery!

KeyQuest Update + Neopets Books
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on February 1, 2008, 6:29 pm NST


Tonight, we bring you an update regarding the now infamous KeyQuest, which has actually slipped under the radar due to the Sloth Plot, and the coming soon Neopets books.

Firstly, KeyQuest has been mentioned in the editorial by TNT. Much to everyone's relief, nothing on the Neopets site will be changing. KeyQuest is simply an extension of the Neopian world. Here's the quote:

I just read and saw on Neopets that you are going to be creating Key Quest. Apparently, you get the Keycodes off of merchandise and then you can play the game. You are not going to get rid of the site as we know it now, are you? I hope this will just be a new game in the Games Room. ~princezuda
This must be rumour day. No, we're not going to replace the site we've spent nearly a decade building up with a single game. :) We have no idea how people jumped to this conclusion. We have a page about Keyquest here. Also, as stated on the page you will not be forced to purchase merchandise in order to play. Please forgive any 404s linked to the info page; we're still in early beta and it is a work in progress.

The underlined text is most important. ;) Also, a KeyQuest FAQ category has popped up in the Neopets help system. To read through the questions, click here. Some interesting highlights are that once you collect all tokens in a given collection, you'll be rewarded with a special bonus token. You can also change the look of your case by redeeming the special boxed Neocash cards that will be released at Target soon.

If you haven't noticed, your userlookup has also had a minor update with all of the images that link to trades, auctions, etc. Of course, the reason of this update was to add in the KeyQuest token spot in your collections box. (The site themes icon looks infinitely better, too. :P)

For more details on the whole KeyQuest story, check out our KeyQuest information page. If you're interested in picking up a code to redeem a token, the plushies that give them out will be going on sale this weekend at your local Target.

In other merchandise news, the Neopets books that we mentioned back in late July 2007 are coming out within 2 months.

Slated for release on April 22, 2008, five books will be hitting the shelves of your local books stores in the US and Canada. (we don't know anything about Harper Collins' international sales). Thanks to pezzers for confirming the release date in Canada! The titles of the books are:

The Grey Faerie Chronicles: Nomi's Quest
Ghoul Catchers: The Creeping Danger
Neopets: Puzzles and Games!
The Ultimate Field Guide: Discover Neopia!
How to Draw Neopets!

The first two are actual novels, which are probably for the younger folk. The others will consist of games, tips, and drawing guides. (Though how helpful will the field guide be? Neopia *does* change everyday... we all remember how fast Pojo's guide went out of date. We'll have to wait and see what's actually in it...)

They'll also include some rare item codes. We're not sure if they will include KeyQuest codes, but we do know at least that they will contain some sort of code. (If you read the July 2007 link we have above, you'll see Kyra Reppen, head honcho of Neopets right now, say that the codes will unlock special areas of Neopets, which *could* be referring to KeyQuest.)

And now, for some lovely pictures of the books! (Click for bigger versions.)







EDIT: Since I, Terry, am too lazy to read through Dave's newspost, here's a quick summary of where you can get the different KeyQuest items/what real life merchandise you buy will get you what Neopets item.

There are, at this time, four types of merchandise you can buy -- Plushies, TCGs, NeoCash Cards and Books. Each type of merchandise gives you different items within Neopets. (And here's a handy dandy list of what you get from each type!)

  • Plushies
    • Plushies Bought from Target: KeyQuest Tokens, Neopets RIC Item
    • Plushies Won from Sweepstakes: Neopets RIC Item
  • TCGs: Neopets RIC Item, CHANCE to win KeyQuest Token
  • NeoCash Cards
    • Just The Card: NeoCash, Neopets RIC Item
    • Boxed Card: NeoCash, Neopets RIC Item, KeyQuest Collector's Case Theme
  • Books: Neopets RIC Item


EDIT 2: The UPC for the plushies is 0039897421131, Target Item ID 086080969, and should ring up as 'Neopets Plsh'. You can call up Target and have them look up the Target Item ID for you. It's a good indication of whether or not they have Neopets plushies.

That's it for this weekend's interesting information! We'll return to our regularly scheduled Sloth plot and daily Neopets news. (Maybe if you're lucky, we'll slip in an editorial this weekend.)
