  • Feedback from Developers 04.24

    Dear Players,

    Thanks again, as always, for sending us all your suggestions. Suggestions as well as other comments about the game, actually. Because there was much ado this week and you have overwhelmed us with your feedback. Thanks for taking the trouble to reach out to us!

    We estimate about half of the suggestions we got were about the Easter Rabbits (male and female). It clearly came as a surprise to see them get Royal status. A bad surprise at that. So an explanation about how this could happen, seems in place.

    It is true that at first, the Easter Rabbits did not have a Royal status configured in our game’s programming. This was not quite by choice, as it was not intended that way. And not surprisingly, it therefore caused a bug in the game.

    When an Easter Rabbit was in the Rabbit Home, the counter that keeps track of feeding times until Royal Status, showed an odd (negative) value. While the game tried to treat the Easter Rabbits like the other rabbits, it was expecting a value for Royal Status, but there was none given. The result: a game that crashes on you. We fixed the issue by configuring the Royal Status like we had intended (but forgot) to do from the beginning. And that is why the Easter Rabbits can - and did, in many cases by now - turn Royal after all. We think that’s better than letting the game crash, but on the other hand, we understand how this case caused a negative surprise for many of you. We deeply apologize for all the inconvenience we’ve caused.

    Well, that’s for half our incoming feedback. Let’s have a look at the other half, because there is good news there!

    You let us know that you miss a few of your favorite Royal Story characters in the Mystical Garden. Mina, Captain Walker D. Plank and Faye the Child Witch deserve some excitement too. They should be included in there! So, soon they too will have the chance to go on adventure in your name, and bring back great rewards. We already put Mina on a walking course. On top of that, we’re making it so that when you level up, any running adventure will end instantly. We hope that will speed things up for you.

    Also, on your suggestion, we took to our labs and started working on a Snow Monster Potion, that will become available next to the already existing Minion Potion. So soon you will be able to summon Snow Monsters as well (in a spot that you desire!).

    Well, that reaches the end of this week’s letter. In the coming weeks, there is lots of fun coming to Royal Story. Keep an eye out for the latest developments between Zach and Merella! And hey, isn’t it Mother’s Day in Royal Story soon….?

    Thanks for enjoying Royal Story with us!

    King Jarvis and the Royal Story Team.
