Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Kelbi Festival Conclusions

kelbievolvingimg6.png
As the festival draws to a close with nothing left to do besides
relax, you join Lula on the grass as her siblings dart around her.
You reflect on the new faces you've met during your time in the
Spiralwood, and how no matter the hurdles faced, people will
always come together to realize dreams into reality.

Thank you to everyone for participating in the Kelbi Festival!
Creating a story with side characters like Lula's family was very fun
for us because we know everyone will be walking away with their
own vision of what the members of that little family look like.

future-plans.png
Here are some plans for improvements for future events like this that we've accumulated from hosting this event!
  • Assign different point prize values to different tasks instead of 1 for every task. This way more difficult tasks like hatching or alchemizing a pet would reward more.
  • Balance future event finale quests to unlock a bit sooner to reduce grindiness.
  • Display a cooldown on the event page for when you can give pets blessings, near the green "Visit Random Pet" button.
  • Add a "donate all" option for snail energy.
  • Add a blessing button in posts on the forums.
  • Look further into random pet button priorities to see if the selection can be a bit smarter.
  • Reduce currency reward clicks in quest by grouping both rewards into one step.

For the next few months, we'll be having smaller events and releases here and there as well as staff managed forum contests in between more permanent content, feature and balancing updates.

    This event was so fun to participate in, the story was charming and it was a joy to see how the festival progressed over time. All of the art and avatars submitted are so beautiful! I'm excited so see how the gameplay of these events improves in the future.

    Congratulations to the winners!! All the submissions are gorgeous!
    I really enjoyed the event, Lula has got to be one of my favourite npc designs. :)

    Thank you for organizing such a lovely event!!!
    The festival had a lovely atmosphere, and the design for the characters and items was super cute ❤️ Also, for me it was the right amount of challenging, unlocking everything took some effort but was still quite reasonable. Looking forward to the next event!

    Thank you!

    Such a fun event! And everyone did lovely work in the contests :D

    I like the low-key feeling to this event. interacting with pets was a great way to get points IMO.

    however I thought it was a bit odd that once the pet interaction portion was over I continued to earn snail energy but I can't do anything with it; not even alchemize. maybe after the turn-in portion the recipe could be unlocked?

    thank you for the event! :)

    I'm happy that things have gone well! I adore Lula's family and am happy to have been here for the very first Kelbi Festival! Here's hoping that future events will be streamlined and that permanent content production goes well!
