Game Announcements

Achievement Prizes!

We've dropped a few hints about equippable accessory items, but we've purposely kept quiet about our plans while we worked through some game balance issues and design issues. So, now for the big reveal.

Secret Squirrel and I have been quietly working for the past couple of months on introducing a whole range of hand held items, and we're releasing the first wave today. This first batch is all items that are earned when you reach certain milestone achievements.

So, there are now sets of background specific items given as prizes when you reach the following achievements:

* Learned the Ropes (Tutorial)
* 1000 experience
* 10k
* 100k
* 1 million
* 5 million

(we're working on 10 million and up now too... looking at you Joseph)

For existing users, who have already earned some or all of these achievements, FEAR NOT! You should now have an active mission allowing you to claim the most recent prize item for which you are eligible. Since these items are designed to wear out around the time you would normally be receiving your next prize, we felt this was a fair catch people up on the prize train.

Important Note: Since everybody now essentially has access to a few more skills, it was necessary to increase mystery difficulty across the board (well, for all levels above easy anyway). I took a wild guess at the appropriate adjustments. It is entirely possible that we'll need to make further adjustments to bring overall difficulty back in-line to the pre item days.

Less Important Note: You may notice that as you earn those achievements with prizes going forward, you will now be given the opportunity to post your achievement to Facebook. This is another baby step in Socializing the game. We're going to keep trying these steps out to see what types of wall posts people find useful, and at what point it just gets annoying. Feel free to give feedback on that.

Thanks as always to my partner in crime (stopping), Secret_Squirrel. He put in a lot of time developing the dozens of prize items we're introducing today and more to come.

err yes there are some new items out there in the form of low durability + 1 skill gloves (see my bio if you want an example.)

We thought we'd just stick them up to see if your average Sleuth can still err sleuth! Ben will make a proper announcement and outline usage and durability later, now someone has found them.
