sfgame_APP_facebook_bg_1136x640Playa Games is happy to announce that the Demon’s Portal, aka the Dungeon Portal, has been through its testing phase and is preparing for its international entry into the realm of Shakes & Fidget. The latest content patch adds a handful of new features, including new activities for solo and guild play. Furthermore, the exterminators were hard at work on correcting various bugs, such as issues with the  Witch’s Cauldron, the title’s previous content patch.

New Features:

  • New dungeon: “The Demon’s Portal” aka “The Dungeon Portal”
  • New guild dungeon: “The Demon’s Portal” aka “The Guild Portal”
  • High-level players now level up faster
  • Level cap increased to level 500
  • Arena win now give you XP* for the first 10 PvP fights of the day
  • You lose at least 20 honor if you lose in the arena
  • New Watch button: The Guild menu now allows you to watch the last guild fight again. It will remain until replaced
  • Arcane Toilet: Aura level cap is now displayed
  • New City Guard background

*You get XP, if the enemy grants you 100+ Honor and/or was not more that 20 ranks behind you (important e.g. for the Top 10 players) Read the rest of this entry »

Wisdom Weekend Event (July 12-13)

sf_wisdom_weekend_eventIf you’re a twink you may want to take the weekend off from Shakes & Fidget. That’s because the rest of the community is going to be earning an insane amount of experience from Tavern quests. That is until the server resets on Sunday, July 13. Until then be sure to maximize your progress by using all the Thirst for Adventure you can stomach. You may want to take a visit to the Mushroom vendor.

There’s Nothing Like a Gold Weekend Event (June 28-29)

sfgame_gold_weekend_eventWhat Playa Games wants to do after a massive event breaks the typical Weekend Event cycle is often up for grabs. I’m fairly certain that the community won’t mind what the designers chose through their elaborate process of throwing darts at the options. In the dark. Dehydrated. That’s right, through deep analysis and painstaking discussion we’re currently in the middle of a Gold Weekend event. Earn five times the Gold from your Tavern quests and City Guard assignments!

Tip: Make sure you finish you assignments before the server resets on Sunday night. If you don’t you’ll lose the major bonus.

Ideas, Tweaks, Bugs and Features the Community Desires

sfgame_player_feedbackWhen we asked the Shakes & Fidget community for feedback on the beloved game we knew that there’d be plenty of ideas. You’ve been submitting them to Community Managers for months, some of you years, and these ideas have been collected, collated, delivered and implemented throughout the game’s five year life.

But this latest round has put everything on the table and you guys came out swinging. Ahead of the July content patch we’ve a massive, yet partial, list of everything the community submitted. Check out the creativity of your fellow gamers and see if your idea is present.

To be clear, these ideas may or may not be a part of the upcoming patch. Playa is not ready to discuss those features beyond the teaser on Facebook. Read the rest of this entry »
