On the Side

Godville, Nov 01 2018

Hey, gods and goddess. Did you enjoy the special Halloween event in Godville? Risen monsters, activatable pumpkins, angry tribbles and the surreal pumpkin trade – we’re pretty sure the heroes were baffled too. As many of you noticed, there was a new thing this year. Yes, we’re talking about that cryptic progress indicator in the hero’s stats.

Side Jobs

Let’s welcome a new source of profit and trouble for our champions – side jobs. After level 25, heroes may find them on bulletin boards located at the points of interest. Side jobs don’t interfere with regular questing and are done simultaneously. Unlike regular quests, which are somewhat routine, side jobs call for a more creative approach. For example, a hero may be asked to sell certain artifacts or even… get resurrected.

A side job can be failed if it’s not finished it in time (which is usually a day or two). Failing a side job is not a big deal, as no client in their right mind would trust anything important to our heroes. However, some jobs are easily doable and heroes will finish them on their own. In the best of ZPG tradition, you – the god – can get involved as much or as little as you want.

Halloween side jobs were new and experimental. Those should be almost over by now. After few days there will be new and more regular (but still somewhat experimental) side jobs ready to be taken on.

Friends Management

A few words on friends. Up until recently, deletion from your friends list essentially worked as a block – the person was deleted from your list, but from the other side you’re still shown as a “friend” that can be “messaged”… into the void. With the latest app update, this option is called “Block”. Also, there is a new “Delete” option, which deletes you from the other person’s list as well. Keep in mind that after this deletion the second party can add and message you again.

App Updates

Side jobs and the other new features require latest version of Godville app. Updates for Android and Windows Phone are already available in their stores (iOS update will follow up once it gets through Apple’s app review process). Besides of the new options, there are few other things as well: you can now see god names and boss abilities in dungeons and sails without having to open the details screen. Very handy.

This sounds like a pleasant addition to our heroes’ lives. Thank you for it. It’s like having optional sidequests in addition to main quests.

I was hoping Side Jobs were permanent, and not just a Halloween event! Hooray, I’m looking forward to seeing more!

Should suggestions for Side Jobs be submitted into the Quests category of the Ideabox, or into Awesome Ideas?

Woohoo! Thanks, devs! You’re constantly improving mechanics and content. Much appreciated!

Looks awesome! The “seeing boss abilities” is a nice little quality of life boost along with the more exciting side quests!

Looking good Developers! More side jobs for the heroes and increasing the possibilities of this game like a boss! Love it and keep it up.

This game just keeps getting better! Also noticed you can select text in the friend chats instead of how in the past the whole message would get copied

Side jobs looking awesome. Thanks for making this game even better with each update!

Side jobs sound like something fun to interact with. Thanks for the changes!

Oh, the iOS update is yet to be approved? That explains why I didn’t see any of that side quest stuff.

About additional tasks well! Interesting idea. About friends is difficult, it is not always possible to correctly remove. Not really a blocking system for deleting friends)
it is a pity that the pumpkins were a short time, at least three days ?

So very kewl. Any tme I see Godville in the update list, it’s like Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, this year should be very interesting…

Lul-Master Nov 01 2018 19:13

New features!
Though I never noticed the Halloween side missions (unless they were the Halloween items in my heroine’s inventory?)

Augnoramous 6 Nov 01 2018 19:28

Yay! Fun, again!

I’m an Android user and I’ve been enjoying the new update :-)
