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.

Your Feedback Matters—Feed and Fetch Upgrades In-App Update v.0.5.1 📱

Major Upgrade 1: Practice Items

  • Two new items have been added to your Food and Toy inventories within the Feed and Fetch mini-games—a Juggling Ball and a Sampuru Rice Ball. These Items are infinite, so throw them as much as you want for unlimited practice time.

Major Upgrade 2: Enhanced UI for Nurture Mini-games

  • Feed and Fetch now feature animated arrows, making it clear when and how to throw your Genopet Food and Toys.

Major Upgrade 3: Updated Pacing for Fetch Mini-Game

  • We slowed the pace of the Fetch mini-game, giving you more time to release your throw. 

Major Upgrade 4: Feed Mini-Game Improvements

  • We implemented larger hitboxes and extended the green zone to give you a better chance to Feed your Genopet successfully.

  • The Ring colors in the mini-game have been made more distinct to make it easier to know when to throw.

  • The motion of the ring pattern has been updated to be slow, slightly faster, then fast. The sequence repeats so users can get their bearings.

Major Upgrade 5: Item Selection Made Easier

  • You can now throw the same Item again without needing to scroll through your Inventory.

  • Scrolling through your Items, you'll notice that your Food and Toys are sorted by quantity.

Keep It Coming—A Sneak Peek at Future Mini-Game Updates 👀

Players are already experiencing upgraded gameplay with the latest app update—update v.0.5.1—but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more to come. Keep sharing your feedback because we will continuously update the Nurture mini-games and the rest of the app based on what you say.

In the next update of the Feed mini-game, we’re looking to up the realism of throwing food to your Genopet. Check out this sneak peek of an unsuccessful throw bouncing off your Genopet ⬇️

#MARCHintotheGenoverse—Discord Challenge Series 🏆

Genopets isn’t just a game; it’s a global community. And we want to continue cultivating a kind, excited, and connected community as we grow. With those glorious plans in mind, we’ve developed a Discord Challenge Series called #MARCHintotheGenoverse to encourage Genoverians to pamper themselves and their Genopets.

Every Friday, we will unveil the weekly challenge details, and TWO lucky winners will be selected each week at random to walk with different augment prizes.

Challenge 1: Step It Up! (March 3rd - 9th) 

The challenge ends soon, so hop on Discord and submit your entry quickly!

Challenge 2: ******* ****** ((March 10th - 16th) 🧐

The next challenge will be announced tomorrow, Friday, March 10th. Keep your eyes peeled on Twitter and Discord—your Genopet will be really annoyed if you miss out on winning them an Augment!

A few other highlights:

  • This 3D model of a Stage 7 body is looking SWOLE 💪

  • Wondering what Esoterra looks like? Our Art Team has been working on 🔥 lore art. Check out this WIP set in a city within the fire realm.

  • Genesis Pet holders opened their Mysterious Cubes to find a ducking adorable everlasting Duck or crunchy everlasting Carrot. 

Didn’t have a Mysterious Cube? Buy one of the infinite Items from another player off Magic Eden.

  • Check out these prototype tech animations for Adsynth, Subsynth, and Lume Crystal applications ✨ 

  • Zoom out on your Habitat to see the new floating island design.

  • The Genopets app now supports 7 languages—Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, & English 🌏

  • From now on, you'll be congratulated every day you hit your step goal 🎉

  • We’ve implemented Feed & Fetch improvements for lower-quality devices.

  • We’ve fixed random people on Android getting logged out.

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.
