At a celebration at San Diego Comedian-Con yesterday, Neopets introduced that it’s creating a cell recreation referred to as Legends and Letters. The corporate additionally introduced cell web site and app are on the way in which, which is able to permit customers to play dozens of the wonderful mini-games out there on the browser web site.
The brand new recreation is noteworthy for being one of many firm’s first ventures into cell territory, particularly by an internet site that’s been round since 1999. CEO David Lord described Legends and Letters as a mix of “Neopets lore, a puzzle recreation mechanic, and battles.” It follows the format of puzzle preventing video games like Puzzle & Dragons, pitting the consumer’s Neopets towards enemies. The sport is separate out of your browser account, although, so, sadly, you’ll be able to’t play with your personal Neopets. It’s unclear whether or not Neopoints (the browser recreation’s in-game foreign money that drives the Neopets world economic system) will switch. Nevertheless, you’ll be able to customise the cell recreation pets with garments and equipment, out there by in-app purchases. A narrative runs all through the sport advised in a comic book ebook fashion to maintain customers enjoying by the degrees.
I WONDER HOW MY KACHEEK IS DOING
The corporate is aiming to launch the sport in October this 12 months for iOS and Android. (Lord additionally stated it was coming to “Microsoft and Amazon,” so take from that what you’ll.) The Neopets cell app is one thing that’s been rumored since 2014, and followers have been left feeling betrayed by the quite a few acquisitions by Viacom and JumpStart (which at the moment owns Neopets) that left the location in disarray.
Regardless of all this, I’m nonetheless hoping for one of the best. Neopets is a web site that’s single-handedly accountable for educating me about every thing from pet possession to studying to code primary HTML to customizing my guild. As surreal because it was to see Neopets throwing a Comedian-Con get together in 2018, its presence (as all of the loyal followers who’ve caught round for the previous 17 years that confirmed up) additionally felt like a affirmation of higher modifications to come back sooner or later.
