Koalen Charity Results!

An update on our Koala Charity drive! Together we were able to raise $600 for the Australian Koala Foundation. These are the 3 Koalas we "adopted" from the Australian Koala Foundation: Peace, Harmony, and Violet! The funds we raised will help them for 1 year each.

"Violet is a female Koala, who is the first joey of Ginger, and her father is one of our rescue Koalas (Koda). Koda is a permanent rescue who was deemed unreleasable. Violet is growing up to be an absolute delight and lives in Sunshine Coast! Peace and Harmony, her joey, live in Brisbane West. Peace was born in 1970!"

Peace and Baby Harmony

These funds we raised will help these iconic species (and the conservation of other endangered wildlife) who were ravaged by fires and lost their homelands. Thank you everyone who contributed to the Australian Koala Foundation, who have been helping restore habitat, supporting protective political measures, and rescuing injured koalas for 35 years.

New Redkin Presale

Love pawndas? We do, too! A new presale went live just now!

The ripple effect of The Red Panda Craze has reached Furcadia! We're excited to report sightings of a brand-new Minkin. And what a Minkin the Redkin is! With their magically HYOOGE tail and roof-bursting cuteness, they're a 10/10!

While Redkin isn't quite ready yet, you can be among the very first players to get one on Digo Market! For preordering a Redkin, you'll receive an exclusive presale desctag FOR LIFE! It cannot be obtained later on, though, so you really do need to get it before it is released - you can't save the order for later!

Summer Festival Events!

Traditional Lighting of the Fires Ceremony

Join the creators of Furcadia: Felorin, Talzhemir, and Emerald Flame this Saturday for the tradition that's spanned for decades! New this year: brand new particle fire effects!

We'll be meeting in the NE area of the Summer Festival map.

Where: furc://festival
Date: Saturday, June 25
Time: 3pm FST (CST)

Tomb of the Nameless King

You're invited!

Where: furc://festival
Date: Tuesday, June 28
Time: 4pm FST (CST)

Join us on Tuesday! We'll grab some tools and delve into the depths of the ancient resting place of the Nameless King, digging for precious treasures, ancient relics, or glittering gems. If you can make your way from the tomb safely with your finds, you can trade them for better tools, trinkets, and other goodies and prizes! Beware though... there is an unsettling magic about the tomb that feels of dark secrets and hidden dangers... Prizes and fun await! Bring your friends!

RSVP here!

Tomb of the Nameless King


New avatars are always exciting, and this one is particularly intriguing!

A new kind of magical being has been discovered, one that the fortune tellers of Kasuria refer to as the Guardians of the Aether. The SkyPuffs are a family of the most adorable creatures you may have ever seen! Imbued with celestial magic, they not only dazzle with their cuteness, but also their magical abilities!

The first of these angelic SkyPuffs is the PacaPuff! These tiny alpacas, cloaked in swirly clouds and featuring special rainbow magic, are sure to win your heart! It's all sorts of cute and funny, and is guaranteed to make you stand out as you sparkle your way through maps and dreams (the PacaPufff will be usable on all maps).

While PacaPuff isn't quite ready yet, you can be among the very first players to get one on Digo Market! For preordering a PacaPuff, you'll receive an exclusive presale desctag FOR LIFE! It cannot be obtained later on, though, so you really do need to get it before it is released - you can't save the order for later!

Beach Bash Dream Contest Winners

Hello everyone! It's high time to recognize our talented players who created fantastic Dreams for the Beach Bash Dream Contest!

Players were asked to design Dreams featuring a fun Summertime game or activity. We ended up with some absolutely amazing creations to explore and play in! We're sorry about the delay in getting the Dreams properly judged and are hugely thankful to the contestants for being so patient and understanding.

You can find the Dream entries here and they (along with some exhibition entries) are loaded in the Spring Festival map, to the SW if you'd like to explore them.

Regular's category for Dream winners:

Second Place (100 GD) Furnarchy Devil, Beach Resort

This Dream features a resort with good attention paid to sound ambience, a cute hidden underwater cove, an interactive bar top, and incorporates both re-size and mimic DS. The Dream is beautiful, thanks to Tacoma's patch artwork! Well done!

First Place (200 GD) and now a new Master Dreamweaver: Gherkin, Happy Froggy Island

This Dream is really a well-thought-out, whole world with memorable NPCs (like Beryl, who wanted a 'pick-me-up'!) and consistently maintains a vibrant, friendly feel. Close attention was paid to ensuring a fabulous new-player experience by incorporating the use of a website with tips, instructions, as well as even a helpful in-Dream NPC guide.

My favorite part about the Dream was the beautiful panorama area with a rainbow parasol, and the frogspawn piano (I stimmed on that for about 2 minutes, teehee!)

Featuring its own original artwork and unified color palette, skin, OST and original sound design (seriously, go have a listen!), mini quests, its own website guide and avatar effects + accessories... this one is quite literally jam-packed with features. You can really tell how much love and attention went into this project!

Master's category for Dream winners:

And now the Master's category, where the prizes are higher, but the competition is steeper!

Second place (200 GD): Deathdog, Party Island

This Dream featured a theme-park vibe with good attention paid to crowd-dispersal (always important with game Dreams!) It also had cute, custom animated art (my favorite was the seagull)!

The sound effects were appreciated, helping to improve immersion. The color maze was fun: figuring out the order was entertaining! Same with the main map word cross puzzle. My favorite activities were both the nostalgic bouncy castle as well as the teacup carousel! Great job, Deathdog!

First Place (400 GD): Terra Wolf, Sauria Island

This Dream's highlight is the stunning artwork, featuring custom local avatars, a skin, epically shaded HUGE dinosaurs, glowing crystal caverns with lighting and gorgeous teal waterfalls, animated waves patches and even archeological digging artwork! The ambient music and follow-sound effects were also extremely well done.

This Dream was also stuffed to the brim with activities, including shell-collecting, egg-sitting, fossil-finding, herb-foraging, hunting, and den-decorating, all of which unlocked decorations and wishing stones!! My favorite activity was the bumpable digging (like minecraft on Furcadia), and also chasing the bouncing prehistoric elephant shrew!

There was also a lot of care shown in the small touches, like adding a quiz to the museum area, incentivizing players to read the educational aspects of the area, as well as the inventory system for building a den! The NPC characters were also lovable, including my favorite, the adorable Green Sauropod, who said, "I really like the mixed veggis at the cafe. I look forward to it every year!" D'aww!

Great job everyone! Thanks to all those who had a hand in organizing and running these festivities, both volunteers and staff! And most importantly, a huge thank you to all of you who put in so much hard work on your entries! We are consistently blown away by the level of talent and unbridled imagination you all exhibit during these contests. You're amazing!
