The YoWorld Update Episode 6: Holiday Special!

Postby Viking Trevor » Thu Dec 15, 2016 5:01 pm

Hey YoFans!

Click here to listen to Episode 6!
Click here for the previous episode!

What's in This Episode?
Feature/Art Updates!
We discuss Christmas and holiday features, themes, increased ad views, partnering up with Facebook to bring in new players, what exactly a "vacation gauntlet" is, and talk more about other things that are on their way!

Special Guests!
A couple familiar voices (Viking Jacob and Viking Nate) jump into the recording room to share some stories of what's coming up, what it was like working on holiday features, and why we doubled-over laughing when the snowball feature was first tested and released.

Postcard Handhelds!
This week we've got some brand-new postcards (as well as some Christmas cards!) from YoFans, and pick two new winners in the draw for Postcard Handheld items! Looking for a chance to win one for yourself? Send us a postcard for us to read on the next episode, we'll add it to the wall, and give you a little YoCash for the shipping costs. Just address them to Big Viking Games with the following:

    300-285 King St.
    London, Ontario, Canada
    N6B 3M6
Topic of the Week: The Holidays!
Vikings Jess, Trevor, Jacob, and Nate all share some stories of what it's like to work on YoWorld around the holidays. There's laughs, tears, and snowballs stuck to faces; so get some cocoa, settle in, and have a listen!

As with anything in YoWorld, we are always on the lookout for your feedback. If you have any comments, concerns, queries, conundrums, congratulations or anything else alliterative, please make sure to let us know below.

Your Assignments This Week
• What are you getting up to for the holidays?
• Let us know what you're looking to find out more about! Is there a part of the game that you would like some more insight on?
• Send us your postcards - we may be picking a few to write back to!

As mentioned in the episode, we'll be taking a quick break for the holiday season, so we want to wish you a nice warm and happy break! The Update will be returning in 2017!

    Can we please get animated Christmas lights for homes and the trees. I like them blinking and twinkling. Please let this theme run a long time, I don't have enough money or coins to buy them all right now. Stuff comes out so fast I can't afford it. I only have 150,000 so it will take awhile to build up. Wish the ads gave better coins. I just get between 2,000 an 8,000

    I love the ads and wish it would be unlimited forever. You know one game I play for every how many ads they give one cash point. Would be so nice to get one yocash for every 50 ads or however many more you want to set. The food ads are my fav. They make me so hungry :drool: .

    Ha! It was me concerned you were throwing darts at my postcards. I was going to send you a bulls eye postcard but Christmas obligations and expectations that I have totally placed on myself are kicking my butt. So I didn't get a chance. Thanks for all of the fun this holiday. Great stuff going on!

    I thought it was! No worries on the bulls eye (great idea though!) - Christmas gets hectic. We're working on joining the 21st century and creating a spreadsheet with received postcards anyway... No more throwing things or taking them down once a month! :haha: Thanks for all the postcards so far! :heart:
