Greetings Penguins!

Happy77 here. Those of you that saw Billybob's video blog may remember that he mentioned an updated Puffle experience. Guess what? It's coming this Thursday!

I wanted to get you the inside scoop, so I asked a programmer a few questions about the new improvements:

What improvements has the team made to the puffle experience?

The biggest thing is that we've added stat bars back. Other than that we've added notifications and puffle emotes. If your puffle needs something, a little notification will pop up in-world to let you know you need to take care of your puffle. And if you go to your igloo and your puffle really needs your attention, a little icon bubble will appear over his/her head to let you know what to do.

What's your favorite thing that's coming out this week?

Stat bars! They really help you understand how different items affect your puffles and what you need to do to keep them happy. They work way better than the original stat bars.

A few people have asked me why penguins are bigger in igloos now. Why are they bigger in igloos?

When we updated the igloo puffle art we noticed that the igloo puffles had really grown in relation to penguins. In fact, they were almost the same size as their penguin owners! It didn't look right, so we decided to make the penguins a little bigger to match the new puffle size. We also think that an igloo is a penguin's home, so it should feel a little cozier than being outside in the world. Having bigger penguins seemed to help this.

What's your favorite puffle hat? ;)

The sombrero hat, it looks pretty funny!

Hope that was helpful! I'm really excited about the new puffle stat bars. Let me know what you're most excited about in the comments below!

Waddle On! :)
