The never ending influx of strong monsters is calling for some countermeasures! Authorities have come up with a new initiative for controlling the rising population of beasts – every day they will publish a reward for two WANTED monsters in the Godville Times newspaper. Everyone who hunts down one of these can claim their prize in the nearest town. In other newspaper news: the items listed in “Buy and Sell” section now can really be sold for much more than they are usually worth.
Some recent developments in the “rankings and measurements” area have brought us a brand new pantheon – the Pantheon of Survival! It ranks the most successful monster-slayers who also happen to have some decent survival skills. Rumor has it that these mystery boxes will be all the rage for their ability to remove death records…
A small, yet important change for arena duels – from now on, if you send your hero to the arena and he didn’t find an opponent, you can send him again after just one hour, instead of four hours like it was before.
A bunch of tech news: players on the Google Chrome browser can now receive nice popup notifications on various heroic events, similar to notifications in our mobile apps. The feature is disabled by default and can be enabled in the hero page settings. If you’re using Chrome (other browsers don’t support this yet) be sure to check it out.
The new version of our Android app has just been released (v3.2) and it features Google Cloud to Device messaging transport (C2DM) support for remote notifications. This should make hero status notifications work on some devices where they didn’t work before and improve battery life as well. C2DM is the new default (on supported devices). The old notification transport can still be enabled using the “Alternative Transport” option in the Notification Settings.
Finally, a few words on all those 502 errors we’ve been having recently. In our continuing glitch-fighting efforts, we’ve just pushed a big Godville-wide update that should make all things run a bit more smoothly. There could be some side effects, though, so if you manage to run into something that stopped working please report it here.
Awesome hope the server hamster updates, help him turn that wheel much more efficiently. NI!
I can’t seem to find the referenced chrome popup settings in the hero page settings.
Refresh your window. Worked for me. Ni!
Also forgot to say, it is under the page settings. Ni!
Great, now I have to download Chrome at work just to try it. Ok, twist my arm. Ni!
Love the new notifications on Chrome! :D And kudos on the “trivial” changes to the arena. Finally!
Working now. Had to clear browsing data in chrome settings and restart the browser.
Oh, so sweet. Activated my heroine’s Kill Switch to kill a Multi-legged Luggage before I even knew it was wanted, and she received a gold brick for its head when she got back to town. Later, I activated my heroine’s Deus ex Machina, and it reduced her death count. Ah, it’s good to be a god.
Nice guys! Appreciate the work ^^.
Fantastic news! Ni!
I’m digging the new updates! Nice work! We appreciate your hard work and continued creative development.
I walked into town. Shot a guard and took off yelling “I hope the squirrles don’t find my stache!” What’s that all about?
Love this game! Ni!
Love seeing Ni! Ni!
Love. It. Kingish Rules
Alas, godville improves again! I thabk you godville and all who report glitches! :D
I like the idea on the wanted monsters but how does the hero claim their prizes in towns?
Yes how do you claim your prize?
