WallaBee 2.2.5 & 2.2.6 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.5 2.2.6 is now available for iOS in the App Store! Android users will see the update available very soon on the Play Store! The WallaBee team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we haven’t addressed, we would love to hear from you. Remember to email support with any concerns.

To allow for players to update, there will be a 24 hour drop-free time period beginning now 7:15am, Saturday April 6th (CDT). Expired

Features

  • NEW BRANDING! We have updated the WallaBee logo and various icons within the game. You’ll find all of our beautiful Set Icons updated to a wonderful flat style, along with some icon touchups on your profile page. You’ll also see much more of Benson! What’s not to love there!
  • Collectibles have been added as a new collection type. Jump further down in the blog to read more.
  • Unique Items have been split into various “themed” subsets.
  • Sets are now broken up by generation.
  • Items can now be purchased with “Buy It Now” option from the market without a player listing.
  • Adjusted profile layout.
  • Reorganized Settings page.
  • Various bug fixes.
    • Profile bio doesn’t disappear when viewing from settings page (and no changes are made).
    • Send Message button updated for Return key (line break).
    • “Forever scroll” through the Store.
    • Optimized image loading in the Store
    • Honeycomb balance shows in Market.
    • Unable to send blank messages.

Collectibles

We’re taking a new approach to items that previously lived on your profile page (Branded, Wallagraphic, and Uniques)! You’ll now find a “Collectibles” section on your profile tab that holds all items in WallaBee that don’t fit into a WB-released set.

Similar to how all WallaBee Sets have a circular icon, all Collectibles will have a star-shaped icon. Collectibles will also only show you items and subsets that you have collected, instead of displaying missing ‘gaps’ in your collection. This means that all Collectibles are 100% optional to collect, without the dreaded “x/y” insinuating you have to collect them. Here’s a quick breakdown of the various new categories you’ll find within Collectibles.

Exclusive Items

Previously known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are obtained through normal gameplay (foraging, mixing, purchasing in store).

Examples of these are WallaBy, Super Burger, and Wand Of Transformation.

Themed Exclusive Items

An extension of the above, these items are categorized for your convenience by their theme.

Examples of these are Grab Bags, Mixers, and Branded Items.

Wallagraphic Items

This set no longer has a x/y view. Not interested in collecting these? No worries!

Unique Items

100% Player or Staff distributed items. Can be commissioned by players when available.

Examples include Saint Nicholas, Yorkshire Rose, and Jack Frost.

Themed Unique Items

Just like the above, but themed into smaller player-owned (or staff-owned) subsets.

All Themed Unique subsets will contain a rainbow border around the edge of the star, with a customized icon within.
This helps distinguish a player-owned set from a Themed Exclusive set

Examples include BAU items, Texas Music Legends, and Fantastic Creatures.

Generations

One issue that newer players have when creating an account is the sheer amount of items there are to collect. The Sets page can be really intimidating with over 170 sets listed. So in order to help our organizing efforts, improve app performance, and ease newer players into collecting in smaller chunks… we’ve split the long list of sets into “bite-sized” bits. With this update, each generation contains 50 sets. We know this will take some getting used to for our current players, but we are sure the transition will be quick to learn! Our website (and ItemBrowser) also reflects this update to help keep consistency.

We look forward to adding even more updates soon, including the ability to save variants! It’s coming, don’t worry. 😉

New Branding Leak

Hello Collectors,

Happy Monday! As we get closer to rolling out the next app update, we want to take you behind the scenes and show off some upcoming changes. However, in order to do that, we first need to leak some information about the future look of WallaBee! That’s right, WallaBee will be receiving a new coat of paint and a brand new logo.

 

After 7 years of being on the market, we felt that a facelift was in tall order. While the old logo was great and served its purpose well over the past seven years, we believe it is time to highlight WallaBee’s fun, lighthearted style with an updated look. Along with a new logo, WallaBee will also see some visual updates in the app that help bring this game up to our artistic standards and pave a route for the app to continue moving seamlessly into the 2020’s. You’ll begin seeing some of these visual changes occur on the blog and website over the next few days, with some specific leaks through social media.

WallaPak 2019

Hello Collectors,

Some of you may have noticed that WallaPak is no longer available in the online store. This is because we have decided to discontinue the physical production of monthly stickers, as we’ve already used most of the Calendar Items for each month. We may add a Virtual WallaPak in the future for those who preferred the virtual products, but there is no final word about this decision as of right now. Physical stickers for your passports will still be made available at different times throughout the year, just not on a monthly basis. With WallaBee’s 7th birthday right around the corner, you never know what’s in store!

There are a few of you “lucky” players that were charged for January’s WallaPak before the final switch was thrown, shutting it down for the year. Congratulations! You now have some fairly rare stickers. Five sets of Tuli Pouch Creature stickers were sent, along with some randomized Great American Road Trip stickers.

Now that all of December’s stickers have been shipped, we will be updating the product for 2018 month stickers to include all available months for anyone who missed or wants extras, while supplies last.

January Build-A-Unique

Hello Collectors!

Happy 2019 to all of you! A new year brings new opportunities, which includes the subject matter of this post. 2018 had a completely full Unique Commission queue, so the ability for newer players to get their hands on their own Unique Items was not possible. We tested the idea of a “Create-Your-Own” personalized Unique with WallaBoo! in October, followed by Señior(ita) Sweet Potato in November, to see if we could increase the availability of Uniques, lower the price down, and still make an interesting product. To our delight, you have responded with great feedback to these special opportunities. As we continue to make custom Uniques for players in 2019, you can count on seeing six Build-A-Uniques releasing throughout the year. The first opportunity of 2019 is January’s Sand-Mud-Snow People.

Date + Time

  • Jan. 15, 2019, at 1 p.m. CST (UTC -6) to Jan. 31, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. CST (UTC -6)

Details

  • BAU Item: Sand-Mud-Snow People
  • Available from the online store for $50
  • No limit per user
  • New submission tool to create live previews of your BAU (courtesy of Mizak and ItemBrowser)

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.

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.
