The YoWorld Podcast: Episode 50

Postby Viking Trevor » Fri Aug 12, 2016 1:00 pm

Hey YoFans!

Update at 5:00pm Eastern Time

Thanks so much to all of you who were able to make it into the game and host some listening parties for us to stop by! 50 Podcasts is a milestone we're extremely proud of and couldn't have done it with your support and appreciation for what we do. Every day we are reminded how lucky we are to have such a committed and caring community, and today was definitely no exception!

If you were participants in the "pickle" rewards, hang tight! We have hundreds of you that were involved, so it may take a bit of time to get everything collected!

Cheers to 50 more!


Update at 6:00pm Eastern Time

Thanks to everyone who shouted "Pickles!" (or "Pickle!") at Jess and Trevor while they toured around some of your events. We did as much as we could to visit each event, and we're so sorry if we had missed yours! Those who we had spoken up around us were given 10 YoCash for participating. Don't worry if you missed out, this event was tons a blast and we will be definitely doing more giveaways in the future. Thanks again!



This week on the YoWorld Podcast, the gang turns 50! Join Jacob, Jess, Trevor, and special guests Gary and sound-guy Chris (The Sharer) as they celebrate the Semicentennial* Anniversary of the YoWorld Podcast with feature updates, trips down YoMemory Lane, giveaways, and much more!

*see also: Quinquagenary


Just a heads-up, this one ran a little bit long! Personally, I think Gary and Jacob just missed each other ;)

Give it a listen by clicking HERE.

Based on the information that we've received from your Podcast Survey Results, we've determined that you really like hearing a lot more about game information, so we'll be bringing an all-Player-Questions Podcast your way next week! Stay tuned!

Features
We're delighted to have the Boss Man Gary join us to discuss feature updates! He talks about Video Ads, VIP progress, satisfaction surveys, bug fixes, Casino updates, and introduces the "Happy Birthday" feature (which will be coming soon)!

Art Updates
We're in the thick of the Amusement Park theme, and tease an "unlocked" part of the Amusement Park map (that will be available soon). Halloween is creeping ever-closer, and we're getting so pumped. We also take some time to look at things that have happened over the last couple of years in the month of August!

Your Favorite YoMemories
Last podcast we had asked you to share some of your favorite YoMemories from the past year, and you help us dive deep into the nostalgia pool. Our hearts were warmed, and want to thank all of you for sharing your incredible moments and thoughts with us.

Postcards!
Thanks XFLisa, Lainie, and Buttercup for sending in postcards! To celebrate our 50th Podcast, we drew two winners for a signed Big Viking Games t-shirt (congrats Wild YM, and XFLisa!) and one 'prize pack' winner who will be getting a package of a bunch of BVG-related goodies (Congratulations to May!). If you're one of our winners, please send us your requested t-shirt size and mailing address to [email protected] so we can get you your prizes!

If you’re looking for your chance to win a BVG t-shirt, signed by members of the YoWorld team, make sure you send your postcards to this address:

300-285 King St.
London, Ontario, Canada
N6B 3M6

YoTip of the Week!
Looking for game shortcuts, "how-to"s, and other game-related advice from the team? Look no further! We're happy to introduce the "YoTip of the Week"! This week we're dropping some knowledge on how to save your facial features for your future outfits, and where to find the new "YoWorld Help Center" (hint: click on the "Help" tab above the game). If you have any tips to share, write them below or send us in a support ticket!

Viking Feud!
We sent out a short survey out to the entire YoWorld team to learn a little bit more about their time with the game, and try to guess their most common answers! Play along with us by writing down your answers before they're read out and let us know your final score by commenting below!

That's it! Next week, we'll be answering your Player Questions. If you've got any more to ask, please throw 'em in below. We've got quite a few to answer on the next episode, but may add more!

Housekeeping Items
  • We've got plenty of Player Questions to get through next week, so get ready!
  • We'll be reading off postcards that we get, so send 'em in!
  • Like us on Facebook, hit us up on the forums, and don’t be shy - say “hi” in the game if you see us!

Thanks again YoFans, and until next time! :heart:

Awesome. I have to be at work for a little bit around 3pm EST but that is ok.

When I get home I will check out the podcast! Happy 50th podcast BVG! ( That is crazy)

Time really does fly when you are having fun.
