Summer Is Here!

Seasonal rollover is complete; those who had fully grown trees in their Orchard will now find Lumber in their inventories from the seasonal Orchard clear out (you can check your Inventory Logs to see how much)!

Summer Seeds are now in the Farmer's Market and seasonal prizes (such as those for Fishing) are now in effect as well.

Seasonal Rollover

Happy (almost) Summer Solstice all! Just a reminder that Spring officially turns to Summer in Midveil tonight at midnight EST, so if you have a Woodchuck pet now would be the time to cut down your Orchard trees for bonus Lumber!

Cake Off Prize Adjustment

After reading your suggestions and reviewing the prize selection of the Celebration Mutation Goodie Bag given out to users who earned 200+ points in the Cake Off Event, we agree that the Snowcone Surprise should have been omitted as it is now a craftable mutation item.

To correct this, we are officially turning the prize into "Celebration Mutation Goodie Bag + Snowcone Surprise" for that tier! As such, any user who opened their Goodie Bag to receive a Snowcone Surprise will receive a replacement Goodie Bag without the Snowcone as a potential prize. Users who received a different prize (or have not yet opened their bag) will receive a free Snowcone Surprise! (If you have not yet opened your bag, the Snowcone is no longer in your prize pool so no worries there!)

You can look for these to begin arriving in your inventories shortly along with an accompanying notification.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to more fun events!


Please Note: This only applies to Celebration Mutation Goodie Bags obtained during the Cake Off Event, not those obtained from the FTO Event Goodie Bags as the Snowcone was an intended option for those!

June Newsletter

Happy June!

As always, before we dive into what’s in store for this month, make sure to check out this rollover's winners in our Winner’s Showcase!


New Feature: Expanded Random Events

Some month's ago we introduced two random events to test the feature. We have made adjustments and added a whole new selection of REs you may encounter! These events random from Good (Such as gaining a new item), to Neutral (With fun flavour text or links to helpful sections of the website!), to a few ... less fortunate results (such as losing a few crumbs to King Moni's snacking habits, oh no!). We hope these will bring some new excitement and randomness to your activities! (And just a tip: King Moni can't snatch your crumbs if they're in your bank!)

As a reminder, Random Events on Strudel-Cafe are triggered by actions rather than page refreshes! So harvesting a crop, casting your fishing line, or even feeding your Beanie can all trigger a RE!


On Hold: Bonus Paychecks

We have removed all bonus paychecks for this month as we are revamping how they work in the context of our activities! We want to make them feel like a worthwhile addition to an activity, rather than an art afterthought. We plan to roll out new Paycheck Bonuses next month. Stay tuned!


Coming Soon: New shops!

We have two new shops planned for release later this month. Keep an eye out for a news update when they open their doors! (We hear one will even sell an item to ward against those pesky "bad" Random Events mentioned above!)


All activities have been rolled over and are ready for participation! As a reminder, Part-Timing has updated this month with a new set of prompts!

Expanded ARPG Crumb Upgrades

Several ARPGs are newly purchaseable with crumbs! These are ARPG memories whose primary function is to unlock website activities such as Fishing for Trouble and Foraging for Faeries. ARPG memories which focus on character progression such as Origins or Magic School, as well as Seasonal memories such as Trick or Treat and Winter Advent, will remain attainable only through traditional ARPG completion.

Base memories cost 100,000 crumbs to purchase and increase by 25k each "part". For example, Barn Raising (as the farm is now free) begins at 100,000 crumbs. The follow-up memory, Flew the Coop, is 125,000 crumbs. These values are subject to change after careful monitoring of how this change impacts the game economy.


Additionally, a new page is live: the Glossary! This will be an ever-expanding compilation of common terminology used within the community to assist new and old users alike! This page can be found permanently linked under the Help section of the navigation.
