What's this?

  • Posted on July 20, 2011, 8:28 pm NST

We're going to see if you can figure this one out. We'll tell you what it is tomorrow, or maybe Friday... or perhaps this weekend.

UPDATE: Yep, it's another Wishing Well Avatar hint. :) We've been trying a bunch of things on our own since we got the clue, but alas, nothing has come about. So, Neopia, have any bright ideas?

Remember, "6" is also another official hint. For more info, read up on our Wishing Well Avatar page.

(It's a souvenir we received from jnCon.)

Krawk Island Disappearance
  • Posted by Nynex
  • Posted on July 20, 2011, 9:59 pm NST

A new ad banner is floating around the site. If you click on it, you will be taken to this page.

The island has been reduced to the small dot we saw last week, and a new Neoboard has been created.

Until recently, this was the spot where Krawk Island could be found. A few days ago, however, a large set of what's being described as claws or tentacles encircled the island, and the small plot you see now and the shanty that rests upon it are all that remain.

You may venture inside the shanty to meet a Krawk on a mission--help him find Krawk Island before it's too late!

We have added "Krawk Island - Searching the Seas" to the preset dailies list.

Our recap of the event, including the prizes you can win through searching, can be found in our Krawk Island disappearance article.

Excerpts from the FAQ
What happened to Krawk Island? All of my favourite locations and games are missing!

Krawk Island has mysteriously disappeared, and we really aren't sure what happened to it. One day it was there, and the next day, *poof*! All that was left was a tiny speck. This seems to be a pretty large mystery, and it will take some work to figure out what happened, so stick with it! There are sure to be rewards at the end for the most helpful and dedicated Neopians.

I am assisting with the search for Krawk Island, but I wasn't able to search all of my available sectors in one day. When I come back, will I still be able to search those sectors?

If you miss a day or cannot complete the search in all of your available sectors, you will still be able to search those sectors on another day. However, we have a feeling that there will come a point at which you will no longer be able to search sectors. So pay attention and come back often. Also, keep in mind that if you complete all of your searches every day, there may be an even more handsome reward awaiting you. That is, if we ever find Krawk Island at all.

What do I get for unlocking a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest?

For each Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest that is unlocked with a Mysterious Skeleton Key, you will receive an exclusive NC prize. You can only receive each prize once, so if you unlock all of the chests, you will receive all of the items.

No Island Found!

You've been finding islets for the past week and now you can begin towing them back to form the larger Krawk Island.

Gavril will give you a new chart at the solitary shanty. Then you will be able to partake in the retrieval process (our recap of that is here).

Don't get seasick on me!

Christmas Yooyu

  • Posted on July 29, 2011, 6:12 pm NST

Although Yooyus are exclusive prizes from the Altador Cup, this petpet is making an appearance during the off season. We're months away from Yuletide; perhaps it just wants to celebrate Christmas in July! Yooyus cannot be painted, so what is this little guy doing here? An upcoming prize?

The perfect AC gift!

Treasure Keepers Coming to Open Beta
  • Posted by Nynex
  • Posted on July 31, 2011, 8:51 pm NST

Neopets' new Facebook game, Treasure Keepers, went into premium beta testing on June 16th. Testers were given the ability to play the game up to level 20, while giving feedback on gameplay and reporting technical glitches. You can see more game screenshots here.

While tending to your shop, you meet new characters that ask you to collect items for them.

What luck, I have found it!

To finish a quest, you enter an adventure board game. As you travel along the board, you collect items, coins and encounter monsters to battle.

Excuse me, do you happen to know the way to the Palace Gardens?

Keeping a petpet by your side can help you in tricky situations during adventures. They can help you solve puzzles or even battle a monster.

But be careful not to get too weak, or you might have to flee from a monster to keep all that you collected.

Sorry! Didn't know that was your sandwich!

After collecting items, you can sell them in your shop. You can also spruce up your shop with new wallpaper, flooring and many decorative items.

The premium beta testers have been having fun, but the Meteor Games Treasure Keepers staff have announced that the game will be in open beta soon.

Neopets: Treasure Keepers Open Beta Coming! - Firstly, thanks to all of you in the Closed Beta for your enthusiastic support for the game! Your feedback, suggestions and optimism has been extremely important to the developers and we thank you for all your efforts. We truly couldn't have done it without you.

Development on the game has progressed significantly over the past few weeks and we're pleased to announce that very soon, the game will be entering its Open Beta phase and will be opened to the larger Facebook community. We've added new features, additional quests and more adventuring opportunities. We can't wait to share these exciting updates with you!

As part of that change, we will be deleting all player data that has been accumulated during Closed Beta. We'll have more information upcoming posted here as to the timing and specifics, but we wanted to give everyone a head's up as soon as we knew.

As an extra special thanks for your help, the developers have put together an exclusive package of goodies for all Closed Beta participants. What will be in the package? Maybe some super special wallpaper? Maybe a statue to place in your shop? Maybe a...?

Well...we can't tell *all* of the secrets in Neopets: Treasure Keepers just yet! Just know that no one outside our Closed Beta players will ever have access to these exclusive treasures.

Look back here for more announcements in the coming days. Thanks again for your help and support!

-The NTK Team

Yes, this means that all of your progress will be destroyed and you will have to start over.

All my hard work flushed away?!?!

But wait! Closed beta testers will be receiving a special package! That will hopefully reduce the pain of having to start anew.

*pokes package*

Although we don't know when the game will be in open beta, we will keep you informed when it happens.

You are not prepared!
