Help us keep making games and earn awesome prizes like Shiny Rayquaza, Cosmoid Starters for PTD 2 and Shiny Heatran!  
Our Goal: $50,000

New Server Setup
We got the new server last week but this week it's all about setting it up. The process of setting it up starts with transferring all the files over to the new server. After that all the databases have to be recreated and all the data from the old database needs to be moved over to the new one. This means that there will be a day or a couple of days that the trading center will be down while I make all the transfers. This also means that I need to spend a large amount of time making sure everything is working as it should and so there won't be a big content update for ptd2 this week.

Mystery Gift
There will be a mystery gift and a giveaway as always. This week Flying won the poll and it looks like woobat and rufflet are winning so far Rufflet and Emolga won! Keep the votes coming!

Working Behind the Scenes
We got some fun Cosmoid related things coming in the horizon. The artists, Joel, Evan and Kevin, are all hard at work on different projects and I hope that soon enough we will start rolling out the first one of them. I hope that I can work hard and fast to bring you these things as soon as possible.

  73. do u still need a shiny makuhita?

    ReplyDelete
  74. At least it's Sam's decision what he wants to add.
    And we are really in need for the new server.

    ReplyDelete
  75. True that, but considering that it is possible to breed for shiny Larvitar but there is no other way than buying/trading for shiny dogs...well... I guess they might be easier to get in PTD 2?

    ReplyDelete
  76. what i thought u said you only had one shiny entei?????

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yes. How about 2 SnDCoins for it?

    ReplyDelete
