New updates and improvements to the Genoverse
Below are some of the items the Genopets team has worked on over the past few weeks. We’re pulling back the curtain to show you, fellow Genovians, what goes into making a game.
Note: items below, unless noted, are not final. Most things we share in Status Reports include early renderings, prototypes, or explorations, so please keep that in mind when sharing thoughts.
Happy Holidays!—The first-ever Genomas Gift Guide was released
In celebration of all the winter Holidays, we released the first-ever Genomas Gift Guide. Inside you’ll find a plethora of toys, treats, and craftable items your Genopet is sure to go crazy for.
You’ll finally never need to ask “Wen Crafting?” again! The first version of Mainframe Alchemical Crafting launched on December 8, 2022, officially making all forms of Crafting (Refining, Terraforming, and Alchemy) available to the community on Mainframe. After months of discovery, design and testing, and a trial run at crafting with the legendary lab, the Genopets team is excited to put the powers of Alchemy in your hands.
In this initial state of Alchemy, players will be able to craft Augments, Cosmetic Crystals, and Reagents. But remember, when Crafting it’s pertinent to follow pre-defined Recipes. Work together with other community members to share recipes through trial and error experimentation in your Laboratory.
Look over the released Recipes in Alkali’s Crafting Notebook (It’s been updated to include all Recipe Hunt Recipes and new information about Refining and Cosmetic Crystals).

Love this!—Petting feature officially launched 😍
Since our last Status Report, we’ve launched the Petting Feature in the app. Now you’ll be able to show your pet love each and every day to keep them in a good mood🥰
Once Feed and Fetch launch, Mood will affect your Step Efficiency. When this happens, it will be important to ensure your Genopet’s Mood Meter is full if you want to get the maximum amount of Energy Each day. So start building good habits and pet your pet today!

And with the launch of Alchemical Crafting and Petting, we are several steps closer to finalizing our Crafting and Nurture Journeys.
That was Legend….wait for it….dary — the Recipe Hunt was a resounding success
After five weeks of hunting for Recipe Pages through Alkali’s Challenging Puzzles, thousands of community members gained access to the Legendary Lab. Because of how invested you were in minting pages, all special items were unlocked and made craftable — including rare Horn, Wing, Tail Augments, and a 2X Energy Boost.
As a reminder, all items crafted in the Legendary Lab were Event Exclusive, meaning they will never be craftable again. So congratulations to anyone who crafted in the Legendary Lab — you have some of the rarest SFTs that will ever exist in the Genoverse.
The Legendary Lab will be closing on December 30th, 2022, before the end of the year, so if you want a shot at these items, grab a full set of pages on Magic Eden and hit the Lab before it’s too late.
Our latest Town Hall — Gather round for all things Genopets 2022
Our founders hosted a year-in-review Town Hall on December 9, 2022, that also touched on a gaming market outlook, the launch of Crafting, Mechanics and Game Design, and a community favorite — state of the game with Ben.

A few other highlights:
- We’re just around the corner from the release of Banking Rewards!
- We’re currently working on upgrading pet appearance with Parallax Eye effects
- Once again, good is not good enough! We’re improving Habitat appearance with better lighting, corrected island tilting, and new bottoms to give more context to the free-floating homes
- We’re leveling up our UX with better in-app communication/onboarding
- Check out some UI designs for improving the bank button function to show countdown/boosts once they are usable in-app
- WHITTAKR droid artwork is looking 🔥🔥🔥
- Have you been frustrated that sometimes the head of some taller Genopets gets cut off? Worry no longer! We’re improving camera angles so they adapt to individual pets
- And obviously, tons of new special Augments have been sketched and vectorized…but we’ll save those for next time 😏
As a reminder, this is just a small sample of what we’ve been up to over the past few weeks. There’s a lot more in store, so follow along on Discord and Twitter to stay in the loop. Till next time.
