Christmas is a holiday that we love to highlight in our games, especially as our player base mostly celebrates Christmas or wintertime the same. To make the game feel more festive, we added loads of decorations to the main shop! The outside has a candy cane look to it, and giant stockings hanging up along the walls. The inside has winter-themed flooring, walls, lampshades, and Christmas trees all around it!
When it comes to the farms in Club Farm Tycoon, we added two specific Christmas farms. The first one is a Christmas Gift Farm that creates Christmas gifts. These presents are made on the farm, wrapped up beautifully, and sent forth in your shop for selling. A second Christmas related farm, where you can create gingerbread, was also added to the game to create more of a holiday feel on the farms itself.
The community, during a pre-holidays playtest, actually suggested a gingerbread farm, so were very excited to see this specific farm in the game!
This newest update is a bit of a mixed bag. We have added Aqua kwamis to the Power Up Pack, completing the Aqua characters within the pack. We have also added Party Crasher’s character – coming to the Zag Stand – and all of his Super Powers within the game, which allows players to dance with a rainbow arch around them, damaging any enemies around.
A big focus of this update was a new mini-game, which allows you to help Adrien’s bodyguard find his missing action figures, giving you coins if you are able to find them all at the end of the timer.
This week’s update brings three Aqua characters into the game. Aqua Ladybug has been added to the Power Ups pack, for those who have the pack, while Ondine and Syren, two swimming characters from Miraculous Ladybug, have been added into the game, to go live on the ZAG stand.
The powers ups of Syren and Aqua Bug have also been added to the game. Aqua Swim can give you a speed boost within the water, Aqua Bubble gives you a bubble of protection and Heavy Drop gives you a water attack that can break items!
This week’s update focuses on a new location and the characters that interact with that location. We’ve added the widely requested Crypt into the game – which is where Gabriel (Hawk Moth)’s wife is in a cryo sleep. Along with this new area, which can be teleported too, we have added two new characters – Amelie and Felix. Amelie is Gabriel’s wife, so it’s perfect for that area, and Felix is her son.
We have also added a bunch of badges to the game that players can earn by purchasing packs or getting paychecks within the game. These are then displayed on their Roblox profile, for everyone to see.
We have changed the customisable settings in the game, so that users who record videos or re-enact scenes from the game can create more of a user friendly experience, ensuring that needless UI aren’t in their way and notifications aren’t obstructing their way of play.
This update focused on adding a bit of new content into the game, in the form of a mini-game. The Bubbler – a villain who is known to create bubbles – have trapped loads of NPCs into bubbles above Paris. Players can join the game and pop bubbles to save the civilians who are otherwise trapped.
A new Heroez Pack character has been added to the game – King Monkey, and his kwami Xuppu has joined along with him. Xuppu has the superpowers Monkey Roll – which is a forward attack – and Uproar, which is an attack around the player.
Players now have an easy way to invite people from their Roblox friends list directly into the game, so that they can play along with them!
Kitty Section is a rock band composed of a handful of Marinette’s friends. They perform on the Couffaine houseboat during the annual National Music Festival, where they sing about loving unicorns and how unicorns make them feel. Their stage clothing is designed by Marinette herself – creating a mix of unicorn and kitty outfits for them to perform in.
After adding in all of the characters from the band – Rose, Luka, Jeluka and Ivan, we added their costumes as a part of the Kitty Section pack. These outfits can be worn as a part of the character, or individually once you have the pack. For players that would rather play civilians that are fans of the band, we have also added a handful of free fan t-shirts to the avatar editor, which anyone can wear and a few flags to wave while watching the concert.
This was the main bulk of the update, but we also added in the character Kim and two new superpowers for Queen Bee – Swarm and Bee Fly. Swarm allows you to use your bees to attack forward, whereas Bee Fly allows you to fly around the city on a handful of bees.
Here is one of our fans showing off the new Kitty Section Pack.
We had a small update for Miraculous RP, where we added a few new characters. Rose Lavillant, a cheerful, girly character who is always looking to help people, was unlocked through our followers and fans liking our game. We set a goal of 75,000 likes on the game’s Roblox page, which was achieved, so she was added.
Ivan Bruel was also added with this update. He is a tough looking character, but is known as someone who has a soft heart, despite being grouchy and stubborn at times. He was also added as a new free character for players to enjoy.
A huge, new, role playing feature was added to the game on this update – a display name editor. This allows players to change their Roblox name above their head into a different name, customising the colors, so they can have their character name above their head when they are roleplaying with others.
In this update, one of the main features is the fact that our Heroez pass is currently on sale, which is why the update is called the Sale update. This pass sale is meant to increase the amount of users able to purchase and have this pass.
Along with the pass sale, Queen Wasp has been added to the game, for free, as a reward for users giving us 50,000 likes on our Miraculous RP Roblox Game. We challenged our fans to hit this goal to unlock the character, and they do so very quickly. Users can use the akumitzation animation to transform from Chloe to Queen Wasp within the game.
To increase user retention, we also added Daily Login rewards. Players can log in every day to get closer to unlocking a free character from the Miraculous Pass. These characters are Stormy Weather, Pharo, Carapace, and Queen Bee. Players need to log in every day for a week to unlock a character, without missing a day, or can pay a large amount of in-game coins to skip a day.
When it comes to community engagement, having contests is something that we find really excites our community! We decided to run our first contest including ice cream and Andre. Andre is a Miraculous character who is known for running an ice cream stand, singing, and being a generally joyous person.
We challenged our community to create an ice cream that would get Andre’s approval, giving them the freedom to create a real-life ice cream and snap a picture or draw a fantasy ice cream that they would love to see in the game. We got hundreds of entries, some with long descriptions breaking down every aspect of the desert and what they all mean, while others were straight up snaps of tasty treats.
We went through all of the entries shared on Instagram, Discord and Twitter, and picked out a few winners with our entire team. We were then able to get Ezran, the voice of Andre in the TV series, to announce the winners through our announcement video.
We made a massive change to the map of Miraculous RP, adding a day and night cycle that happens automatically within the game. This includes lighting up the Eiffel Tower, so it can be seen at night. This has been heavily requested due to the night scenes within the TV show.
Two new kwamis were added into the game – Markov and Robostus, who float around your character.
A new addition to the Heroez Pass, Pegasus has been added to the game, allowing users to select Max, use the transformation, and become Pegasus. This character has a new item, a boomerang, which has a neat animation that people really seem to enjoy. His kwami, Kaalki, is also in the game, of course.
We have added an akumitization animation which allows players to select a civilian form, use the animation, and then become the villain version of that character – for quick transformations and a bit of flair to role play.
