Christmukkahwanzzali Details

Hello Collectors,

The holiday season is upon us in WallaLand. Instead of our normal December lineup, we have opted for a non-denominational set this year – Christmukkahwanzzali! Since we’re changing things up a bit, we figured we’d have some fun it…

We teased the first item in a recent social post – the Gift Tag. As you may guess, this Gift Tag will be used multiple times. However, in order to slow down the releases for this set (and not have a smaller version of Christmas Crisis) we will be delaying some of the available mixes. We know that this isn’t everyone’s first choice in releases, but it will be crucial for this set to be a success. After the Gift Tag releases, the rest of the set will begin to make sense.

Hopefully this quick note helps with some upfront confusion or frustration. Just because a mix doesn’t work right away, doesn’t mean it won’t work later.

Other Holiday Details

  • Festive Friends will return soon.
  • Holiday Mystery Boxes will be available from Mixers beginning December 20th, 18:00 UTC and ending January 2nd, 18:00 UTC.
  • Christmas Mixers are available from Mixers and will appear in Festive Friends.

Updated Commission Information

Unique Commission Requests

Andy is able to complete a varying amount of Unique commissions per month, depending on the tier of the Unique (explanation to follow). All Unique commissions will be handled one-at-a-time. Hangups in moving forward with your unique (i.e. lack of details, missing payment, etc.) may lead to other Uniques being worked on before yours.

  • Read and understand Andy’s Artwork Guidelines and Brief Questions.
  • Have all information for your Unique, including any and all details, ready to go.
  • Use the Commission Unique button below.

Communication, Payment, and Proofs

After the details of your Unique have been received, the Unique will be added to a running list. You will receive an email response from staff when we are ready to begin working on your Unique, or if any details need to be clarified/worked out before given to Andy. After all details are in order, the expected price tier of your Unique will be quoted and payment due-date will be given (Payment is due before Andy begins working on your Unique). Two proof revisions are allowed. In order to limit back-and-forth communication, and keep Andy’s workload manageable, please make sure that any and all details that need to be changed are mentioned after the first proof is received.

Receiving Your Unique!

After the Unique has been completed, you will have access to it through the website. After logging in, navigate to your profile. On your profile’s main page, there is an option to Gift Unique. Please note that the Unique will gift out in numerical order, beginning with #1. You will not be able to skip ahead numbers, so if you’re looking to gift a specific number to someone, all previous numbers must be gifted first.

Unique Payment Tiers

Due to the varying levels of complexity between Uniques, pricing will adhere to the following:

Additional Information

  • Animation is not available for new items.
  • If you are interested in making your Unique available through Uncanny Uniques/foraging, blocked from the market, mix with your other Uniques, etc. please have that information available in your request (There is no premium for these features).
  • We do charge extra for variants, which is on a case-by-case basis.
  • Tier 3 pricing is a base cost. Depending on how much detail is required, Andy may add premiums.
  • Uniques that are on accounts that are closed get returned to you, although there can sometimes be a delay in these being returned.
  • WallaBee characters are not allowed in Player Uniques. However, if your design involves the reference to a character, we can work with you through the details.

We look forward to allowing all players the ability to commission their own Unique in a timely manner. If you have previously emailed or messaged staff about Uniques, please take a moment to resubmit the information as outlined above, as all requests need to go through the Commission Unique button below. Have fun!

Gone Fishing

Hello Collectors,

What’s orange, metal, and highly addictive? That’s right, WallaBee Mixers! What would make the Mixerpool even more fun? Better items when the pool is empty! Today’s update brings you a quick look at some new features we’re adding to the Mixerpool.

Mixers

Here’s a brief overview and refresher on how mixers work. When players mix two Mixers, they either get an older item from ‘the pool’ or they generate the next numbered item for any Set Item in the game. The chance that a player will receive a ‘pool item’ depends on the Mixers used.

When a New Item is triggered, there are 2,000+ items you can receive. With so many items possible, we thought it would be nice to direct certain items to you more often. There is now a 30% chance that an item from a specific list will be received when creating a New Item. We have been testing this over the past week with Unicorn Poop, Wishing Well, Christmas Mixer, Ship-in-a-bottle Beagle, and WallaSpud. If you’ve noticed these coming out of Mixers recently, you now know why. Along with other items you may not see regularly, you will begin seeing more drops occurring through mixing Mixers… including some very special fish!

Fish

We are adding a new series of WallaBee Uniques (soon to be Themed Exclusives) which will be found within Wishing Wells and Mixers. Did you know that Smelt can be found in both freshwater and saltwater? They’re sometimes referred to Forage Fish, which makes them perfect for WallaBee! Try mixing two Smelt together to see which path it chooses!

When the Uniques split happens, these fish will appear within their own subset, but will remain within the Uniques set until then.

Unique Spotlight – Dark Side On The Wall

Remember: All in all you’re just another brick in the wall. And there is no dark side on the moon really. Matter of fact it’s all dark.

Owner: Wyando

How To Get: Uncanny Uniques Store

Meaning: It mostly acted as a “thank you” unique for the help when I started this incredible game almost 3 years ago. But even after all those years, this unique still seems to be full of surprises…

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: I “just” wanted my first unique to have a personal touch (“Wy”) and combined it with two of my favourite albums “The Wall” and “Dark Side on the Moon”. Listen to these, best with headphones, while figuring out how to build a wall…

Unique Spotlight – Indigo

A dark soul, lost and afraid, stumbles upon the Tavern of the Damned.
There she finds her salvation in a new family, finds parts of herself she could only dream and learns love is for eternity

Owner: indigo

How To Get: It is in the Uncanny Uniques store. I have a limited number of TDs which I’ll trade for a 1985 card. A 16 card if it is a Unique. Or an upgrade to any of my none 1985 saved cards.

Meaning: I was completely obsessed with WallaBee, and I wanted something that I could exchange for other Player Uniques. I liked the idea of something that I had ‘invented’ being part of the game.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: This is a representation of my first online role player character who at one point felt like a bit part of my personal story and had a lot of meaning. Indigo was/is quite special to me and I still use her full name as a username for some websites/games. She represents a time of exploration, self-discovery and transformation.

Unique Spotlight – Clover

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” ~Dr. Seuss

Owner: Trent

How To Get: The item was just added into the store to share with everyone 🙂

Meaning: It was commissioned to gift out to all the great WallaFriends I made in the many years of playing this game.

Which number Unique is this for you? It was my 2nd Unique. When I commissioned my first one, I had no plans to do another, but Andy really gets you hooked.

Closing Thoughts: I am not as active as I once was. By placing it into the store, I am able to put my Unique out there so all players can add it to their collections. I especially hope that the clover finds all the new players that I haven’t had the chance to interact with yet.

Collections & Uniques Update

Hello Collectors,

Over the past few years, we have added many new items into WallaBee, both in general Sets and Uniques. As we continue to grow the quantity of items players can collect, we need some better organization. We attempted to do this with the last app update, by splitting Player Uniques from WallaBee Uniques within the Uniques window. This was a good first attempt at reorganization, but is unfortunately still lacking what we’d like to see. With recent confusion over Player Uniques and WallaBee Uniques, we feel that a definitive split is necessary within the Uniques umbrella for peace of mind moving forward. Other items like Grab Bags, WallaBoo! Uniques, and ‘player sets’ don’t fit well under a general ‘Unique’ umbrella. The team has been discussing some various improvements for better organization and speed (both frontend and backend) and believe we have a solid plan to implement this.

The app portion of this update will take some time to implement, so there’s no worry about getting sideswiped by this better reorganization in the near future. However, we believe we can begin rolling out some of these changes on ItemBrowser within the next week or so (Artwork used on ItemBrowser are placeholders). This early adaptation will hopefully allow everyone time to get used to some new terminology that will be used within the game.

Collections

To better help explain what WallaBee is all about, all items will be categorized under this new heading, grouped accordingly by the following.

Sets

  • Notes:
    • Sets are Themed Collections of items that can be collected and completed for a reward.
    • These items are produced by WallaBee as open edition items, available for all players to collect.
    • Current examples of this are anything under the ‘Sets’ portion of the app (circular icon).
  • Future Organization (running titles):
    • Generation 1: The Early Sets
      • First 50 sets in the game: A Trip to the Circus – Bank Heist.
    • Generation 2: Beware the Jabberwocky
      • Next 50 sets: Andrew Cameron’s Alice – Behind The Scenes.
    • Generation 3: The Rise of Munzee Man
      • Next 50 sets: A Day in Singapore – WallaBee Fitness And Wellbeing.
    • Generation 4: Make a Wish in the Wishing Well
      • Next 50 sets: Freshly Squeezed – current.

Collectibles

  • Notes:
    • Collectibles are special items that can be collected, but cannot be completed.
    • These items are produced by either WallaBee, Players, or sponsored businesses and brands.
    • Collectibles won’t show missing item silhouettes.
    • Current examples of this are Uniques, Branded Items, Wallagraphic Items.
  • Future Organization:
    • Exclusives
      • Formerly known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are issued by WallaBee that may extend the theming of a set (Pie-Eyed Andy) or stand alone (Red Herring).
      • These items are available specifically through gameplay.
      • New Icon (TBD).
    • Themed Exclusives
      • Same as above, but categorized into a theme (i.e. Santa Hats, Grab Bags, Mystery Boxes, etc.).
      • New Icons (TBD).
    • Uniques
      • Formerly a combination of all Uniques, these will only include Player Distributed items (i.e. KivaBee, A Little Gift, Rainbow Bridge, etc.).
      • New Star icon to help with Themed Uniques.
    • Themed Uniques
      • Same as above, but categorized into player-decided themes (i.e. Texas Music Legends, WallaBoo, Event Items, etc.) based on owner’s request (setup process TBD).
      • Same new Star icon as above, with an icon inside showing a theme (similar to current set icons).
    • Wallagraphics
      • These are rare cards found within Grab Bags. No change.
    • Branded Items
      • These are sponsored item.
      • These may be absorbed by Themed Exclusives in the future.

We believe change will also allow us to better implement the ability for players to save variants in a way that makes sense. We are really looking forward to this proposed project and hope you will support this decision for better organization and growth.

*Everything listed above is subject to change. Adjustments may happen based on feedback and/or development needs. Updates will be made when available should changes occur.
