What's Coming Up!
Posted by ⛭ V O L K ⛭ (#2) on Wednesday 05/02/2018 at 7:38am (4 weeks ago)Hello, Mushers!
Firstly, sorry I've been so absent! If you visit the chat you probably already know that I have been busy with a program that I won a competitive scholarship to, and progressed to the second round this past week. I've been working on GoneMushing for a long time, now — mostly just because of you guys — and I think it's about time to take all of my newfound knowledge and start working on a game I've been planning for about four years.
Good news and bad news — first, the good news! Just by being members of GoneMushing, you're all invited. Keep in mind that this is not a "reserve your account" type of situation. For starters, user numbers will be "bib numbers", which are a non-linear randomized seven-digit number, that pair with a changeable non-unique username and a...

Hey, everyone! I hope you guys are all enjoying a nice warm Easter where ever you are in the world. Our annual Easter scavenger hunt is now available and will be running for one week! There is also another activity for today only - an Easter Egg hunt! You'll be able to find up to five eggs throughout the day, which will be actual special items that will affect your litters. Happy hunting! And don't forget that Easter Eggs are now on sale at the Diamond Center for a limited time only.
Welcome to Spring!

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night!
Hello, mushers! I hope all of you are having a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day! During the month of March, your odds of finding clovers have increased - for both upgraded accounts and normal users alike. Aside from that, we also have a scavenger hunt running. Remember that if you get stuck on a clue, you can always pay a small amount of gold to continue. Good luck hunting for those special items!

I know it's been a little difficult to play the game lately, especially with the problems with litters! I haven't had the time to sit down and hunt the bug, but the good news is I have put together a tool to manually mature your litters as needed. If you continue to breed, just keep posting those litters that die instead of maturing, and I will manually restore and mature them. I know it's a band-aid at most, but it should hopefully be enough to allow you to keep playing while I'm (mostly) away from the game!
PS - If you're into real life mushing, the Iditarod starts on Thursday! Check out their website while the race is running for updates at each checkpoint and current standings.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Hopefully you're all spending this day with the people you love the most!
Just for this year, we've cooked up a special heart plushie!! You can find one in the scavenger hunt, waiting alongside a beautiful rose - they will be on sale for Diamonds until 2/18.
Have a great day everyone!

Sleds: Teams & Items
Posted by ⛭ V O L K ⛭ (#2) on Tuesday 01/30/2018 at 2:40am (4 months ago)Hello, Mushers!
A tiny patch pushed this evening, this one to fix the sled bugs that have been plaguing you all. You should now be able to change the team assigned to your sleds on both the team and sled pages, as well as change all items, totems, charms, and luck items. Items can be easily changed inline, the drop button should replace the item with a select for the new item, and the error where it was registering double clicks and replacing your select with an error message should be resolved. While luck items, totems, and charms are not yet fully functional, this should be fixed very soon!
Next on the list: notifications that won't clear and ghost messages because, well, that's annoying.
Awards & Badges
Posted by ⛭ V O L K ⛭ (#2) on Saturday 01/27/2018 at 4:01pm (4 months ago)Hello, Mushers!
Wow, am I dense! Did you know that even though I had heard from you guys that badges and awards were a little wonky, I had in no way realized that you were not earning any badges or awards ever! This has been fixed and should be working properly in the future. If there is a badge or some number of awards that you would like credited, just send me a message! It's the honor system, obviously, but I'm pretty sure I'll know if you're pulling my leg. ;D
For posting, experience and race awards, you should receive all badges for your cumulative totals next time something is added (next time you get exp, next time you finish a race, etc.). The exception to this right now is possibly the slot badges, but I wouldn't recommend that you go after those right now, anyw...
Upgrades, Bugs, & Chat Trivia
Posted by ⛭ V O L K ⛭ (#2) on Wednesday 01/24/2018 at 7:29pm (4 months ago)Hello, Mushers!
First off, I want to say two things - I apologize for my relative absence in the last few months, and thank you to all of you players that have stuck with the game during that time! To show my appreciation for your loyalty, I was trying to throw you a couple of months of upgrade time, but I managed to nuke your existing upgrade expirations instead; As a result, you all have upgrades extended until a year from now.
I will be doing a little bit of bug-fixing as I have opportunities, as well as working through the messages in my inbox. Your bug reports aren't falling on deaf ears, and I will be working through the unaddressed issues in the order of severity in addition to preparing for the next big update. Keep an eye out for a small expansion to the arcade coming soon.
