HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARAPETS!!!!


Eyru candle

*sigh*

Marapets' 12th Birthday Party celebrations have just started. They have 2 new events that will run until September 5th. Marapets will be a teenager this time next year!!

Marapets' 12th Birthday Party has started - with a pirate theme! If you are wearing a Pirate Locket item, the Birthday Forum will open for you. We need your help inviting as many online players to the fun! Visit a user's profile and hit the 'Happy Birthday' button and they will be invited to the party. Each player is different - some won't party, some will and others will have the best time ever! The response of the character will depend on what prize you receive. You can only invite a player who is currently online and can only invite the same player once every day. Each player can only be invited once every 30 seconds. You will receive MP or one of 63 new Pinatas as a prize.

Hit any of the new Pinatas and you will find one of these new prizes inside...

Armor Potato Chips

You know you want me

You may also find the retired Pinata Costume inside any Pinata. The Ike, Kidlet, Lati and Oglue can now wear this costume.

As you browse and play the site as normal, a 'Birthday Gift' may show up in a box. When you find it, click it and you are guaranteed a prize! You can win all of these new Party Bags below, MP and if you're lucky, Account Upgrades Credit!

At the end of the event, the top 100 players who collect the most gifts will receive 1,500,000MP and a Party Popper Trading Card! The next 300 players will win a Party Popper Trading Card.

15 random players who find 100 or more Gifts will also randomly win a retired Party Costume.

Posting the 12th Birthday Cake image on profiles, siggies, etc is confusing to other players and, as usual, is not allowed. If you are asked to remove the image and do not do so, your account may be frozen until the end of the 12th Birthday celebrations.

Open any of the new Party Bags and you will find one of these new prizes inside...

Sticky Hand Green

If you love a game of chance this weapon is for you. You never know what this sticky hand will bring you, but WATCH OUT your opponent inherits it after you use it! Limited Use.

The End is Nigh!

Murfin cartoon

All Good Things Must Come To an End

We would like to give you all a heads up that Marapetty Tunes will be Down for Maintenance within the next 8 days - most likely sometime tomorrow October 19th. We will give you plenty of warning and there is no need to do anything. As we mentioned at the start of the 10 Year birthday events, our Cartoony Pets were getting old and slowly unreliable. We have since ordered brand new ones and have been busy setting them up. It will soon be time for us to cancel Marapetty Tunes for possibly 6-12 hours while we move all data and test out the new Marapets system.

During this time, Marapets will show a 'Down for Maintenance' page with frequent updates. The new Marapets system will be much more reliable, faster and allow us to release a lot of new features and improvements to the site that the old Cartoony Pets simply couldn't handle. We appreciate your patience and promise to keep you all updated. Once everything is back, we will return to normal news updates and finish the Birthday events, which was put on hold while we focused 100% of our attention on this.

For you Chibsy Tunes addicts... sorry. :(

The Chibsy Tunes and Marapet Melodies will cease to exist! As we've said before, be sure to watch your Chibs while you still can!

We've had quite a few delays the past few days, so here's a collection of everything that has been announced the past few days.

Cartoony Delicacies:

The End is Nigh!

Snookle steampunk

Goodbye, Decadals.

News-A-Snookle: Yes, that's right, folks, the end is nigh!

To summarize all the happenings:

1. King Baspinar's Masquerade Ball: some didn't party, some did and others had the best time ever!

2. People hit the Pinatas to get goodies.

3. People each got a 'Birthday Gift' in a box to get more goodies-- especially Account Upgrade Credit!

4. The top 100 players who collected the most gifts got 2,500,000MP and a Party Pooper Trading Card!

5. 12 random players who found 100 or more Gifts also randomly won a basic coloured Decadal Potion.

6. There were 50% more winners of Account Upgrades credit all throughout August, to celebrate 10 years of Marapets.

7. As part of the 10th Birthday celebrations, all Party, Pinata, Daylight and Moonlight pets had free training at the Gym and Elite Gym.

Now... get your dailies in, fulfill your games craving, and make sure your pets are fed before you say hello to them after the festivities! (Unless you really want them to be famished for another two days on top of the however many years they've been famished already.)

That's it! We'll see you on the other side. We won't be rocking back and forth in our office chairs clutching our Marapet plushies while the party fun's over... probably.

Breaking News:

1. The Daylight and Moonlight Account Upgrades will be retiring soon.

2. Account Upgrades: You will not be able to purchase the Monster Account Upgrade.

3. Other Things: These are still being moved over, so they won't be sent out until later on.

4. Timed content, like Dailies, for instance, you may not be getting there quite on time, and Kujobbia Justice has quite a bit of work to catch up on...

5. New Features/NT: Nothing worth news-breaking this time, so don't worry.

But apart from that... go feed your famished pets or play a few games... or collect your dailies!

And thanks again for all your patience during the party. We hope it wasn't too stressful. Some of us actually went outside. That ended... poorly.

Time to start planning our 11th Birthday party...

MOVING TO STEAMPUNK TIMES

Murfin steampunk

Time for steampunks!!

Transition Update - The move to our new home at the Steampunk times continues and we're almost ready for a very big step: the transfer of all code, databases, and server infrastructure! The programmers have had their 'DO NOT DISTURB' steam-powered headphones on for the past few months now and we expect to get the 'GO GO GO' nod from them soon. So, we wanted to give everyone a heads up about the upcoming downtime and provide info on what you can expect. WALL OF TEXT! Here's the scoop:

  • Steamtime: The pets need to come down for the move and will need to remain down until everything is ready on the other side.

This also includes the Account Upgrades, Steam management, the Help Centre... everything! You will see a Down for Maintenance Dakota during the steamtime. There's also the possibility of an error telling you that the thing doesn't exist during certain points in the process. Do not fear! That's normal and we do exist... mostly.

  • Length: We currently anticipate about one month of downtime.

If you want to get updates during the move or find out when we're back up, you can follow us on Twitter or Facebook. We will probably hand out virtual pizza and stuff.

  • Timing: Right now it looks like we'll be ready to begin either later this week or early next.
  • Your Account: All your account data is safe and sound and your pets will be there to greet you when the site returns!
  • Side Effects: Unfortunately, because of their size and the work required to migrate them, a couple big things won't be included in this transition.
  • Gifts: Professor Murfbottle is hoping to have a gift for everyone after the move, as a thank you for helping him with this transition.
  • Minipet Island: Minipet Island may be accessible after the transition. If you happen to also be a Minipet Island villager, you'll be receiving more information soon about that world and your minipets.
  • Marapet Members: We'd like to make up for your lost time with some free MP. It will be delivered via Maramail within a few days once we return from the downtime.
  • AU Shoppers: We'll make up for any items you used that were affected by the downtime. More info will be provided when we come back up.
  • WHEW Sorry for the wall of text but we wanted to provide as much info as possible. Thanks so much for your patience during the move (and in the months since the move to the Steampunk times)! We hope to make this move as quick and painless for you as possible.


Make way for steampunk times!

OUT OF BUSINESS!!!

Mechanic bank

Uh oh... this can't be good...

Hmm, we certainly hope everyone has a few saved car parts in their marahome's attic, and wish the bogus Fortune Teller would have said something; but we are doomed... Well, the Car Parts Shop owner has gone bankrupt, and car parts being one of the preferred items from the Elger Quest and Simerian Explorer... Well, this can't be good. Rumors that this has also made a huge impact on the Puchalla Village's Stock Market mean that things will be nasty for car owners in Marada for a while. There's talk about a new plot and all, what could it all mean?

MARAPETS MADE IT TO MOBYGAMES!

Mobylogo

Marapets MobyGames Entry!!!

It took a while but finally Marapets has been accepted as a "gaming site" and its games made it to [1]MobyGames. It took a month to gather all the information and sources to be able to list Marapets there in the Browser Game category; where you can find such flash games as [2] Shoot The Fatty and [3] Sokoban. A BIG THANK YOU to MobyGames for giving me this opportunity!

I successfully added Marapets into MobyGames. It wasn't easy but after about a month of modifications to the content I submitted, and LOTS of URL sources to back up my entry; there it is!

WHAT'S NEW AT MARAPETS?!

Chibs devil

HALLOWEEN has finally arrived at Marapets! The festivities have started with a NEVER BEFORE seen Mr. Beelzebub who's supposed to be the #1 Devil in Marapets! The Halloween activities are just beginning and there will be more surprises, so why not take a look at the live NEWS PAGE for more up to date information about the upcoming events for the remainder of 2009!

MORE MARA-NEWS HERE...!




Posted on : 29th October:

Well its nearly Halloween and things are starting to get spooky around Marada. We're not sure where he came from but there seems to be a halloween devil running around! He calls himself Beelzebub and he has all sorts of halloween goodies to give away to members who have a halloween-themed character or profile - mostly small things but a few lucky members might get a rare costume or a limited edition pet!


Dont worry if you dont have a halloween costume for your character, you dont need one - just use your imagination and grab yourself some appropriate clothes and makeup to make yourself look appropriately spooky - creativity is more important than the expense of a costume!

Although this is mostly a forums-based event, there will also be prizes rewarded randomly to members who are online and have something spooky about their profile, so you may still win something even if you dont have forum access.



Dukka Piracy News Sept 2009 Edit


WHAT'S NEW AT MARAPETS?!

PirateBay

A BRAND NEW never before seen event has begun in Marapets! The Dukka Piracy event which is somewhat similar to the past Marapets wars. Due to Ian being hospitalized the Undying Festival has been canceled this year. Marapets 5th Birthday celebrations are somewhat late as well, but Ian has notified that they will occur very soon!!! Please READ THE NEWS for more up to date information about upcoming events for the remainder of 2009!
