World Wildlife Day


March 3rd is World Wildlife Day, and with that, we want to honour what we may lose if we don't fight for it as a civilisation and as a whole. Every day should be Wildlife Day.

As the global restrictions lifted after lockdowns, poaching numbers are raising again, mainly on private reserves which are less protected. 'In 2023, 406 rhinos were killed on state properties and 93 on privately owned parks, reserves and farms' according to Reuters. Hluhluwe–Imfolozi park lost 307 rhinos alone.

With this news from 2022, it looks like poachers can really start to panic now - poachers can be identified from DNA left on elephant tusks.

For some good news, we recommend reading amazing data on IAPF / Akashinga's website - here. Their teams are being trained and achieve immense success in stopping poaching, but also educating and hiring local people in their fantastic conservation program.

We want to keep supporting the fight against poachers, which never stops, no matter what happens in the world.

We've gone from being a small browser game made by three people in 2012 to a growing, sizable company. We've shifted more from just silly encounters to educating our playerbase and participating in conservation efforts where we can. This is why this subject is important for us, and we'll speak of it bluntly. Forgive us for the gruesome words or descriptions. Unfortunately, this is the reality of the world.

Many poachers will brutally hack the entire face off a rhino with axes while the animal is still alive to ensure they get the entire horn as well as a "serum", as it is worth more.

Thankfully, a new technology may help to save rhinos in advance by 3D-printing the horns from the same materials and injecting them into the market, in the hopes that it would cause poaching to die down.

There have been reports of chips and probes being inserted with a toxic dye that renders horns useless for poachers. Thanks to a suggestion, we included an event encounter a few years ago that references this, even though it's a rare occurrence. More often, the horn is just removed and the rhino's nose bridge dyed - we've included that in the game, as well.

Rhinos are a symbol. We're trying to raise awareness about many endangered, vulnerable, and threatened species of mammals, birds, lizards, arthropods, plants, etc.

Living our everyday lives might not seem to be any help in a big fight against such a seemingly-endless problem. It may not occur to us when we drink our morning coffee, drive to work, or play a video game, that we can actually do a little something to help people who are professionally prepared to fight against mass animal massacres. We can give them a hand and share what we have with them, as well as help by spreading the word around the world. Helping to save lions, rhinos, elephants, and all other endangered animals lies within our hands as well.

March Event - Anti-Poaching



The Anti-Poaching event creates an opportunity for you to defeat poachers in Explore, gain Prevent Points to unlock a secret area, and help defend Africa!

What's great is that the wandering poachers have randomised encounters AND some randomised outcomes, too. This adds a lot of variety to your choices! But, be careful - if your level is too low, you might not stand a chance against a large number of poachers! You will be ensnared instead of being able to fight. Poachers have left traps everywhere!

Choices made when killing poachers or shooing them away will affect your karma!

Prevent Points are gained for a public bar unlock, but you may notice that you also gain "RB". These are Rhino Beetles, a special event currency specific to March! Hold tightly onto them until the shop is unlocked!

Poachers aren't only lurking for lions within Lioden; they've already done some evil. You might stumble upon the results of their wrongdoings in Explore as well. It may be horribly sad, but it's horribly true in real life as well. This is what real life is, and it's just as upsetting. We want to raise awareness, and we want you to be prepared for these tragic times.

Oasis Reminder: Remember that from March 1st 00:00am LDT until March 31st 11:59pm LDT, a unique "Aging Injured Persian Fallow Deer" decor will be available to purchase in the Oasis!

Crafting Reminder: Remember that you can craft the "Murex Base: Haliotis" and "Murex Markings: Haliotis" applicators in Monkey Business once Tier 2 of the Black Market has opened! These recipes are exclusive to March's event.

Charity


We're supporting a charity that's close to our home: Tusk - LINK.

At the end of March, as in previous years, we'll donate a portion of our March income and share a screenshot from PayPal.

Event Updates for 2024


Just like in January, we are skipping the release of a base applicator this month and introducing new items instead. We've found a few interesting suggestions, and we'd like to introduce our take on them in Tier 3 of the Black Market. When we're closer to Tier 3 and all testing is finished, we'll update the item descriptions in case of any important details that show up!

Leopard Tail - Using this item will increase the chances of a rosette appearing if criteria are met for one.
Follow the Injured - Using this item will boost the odds of your lionesses finding specific prey for your hunting quests.

We will clear everything up with these items in the Development Update news if it is released before Black Market's Tier 3! If Tier 3 opens first, we will release a small news post instead.

As usual, along with these new items, new rewards will become available in the Black Market as tiers are unlocked!

In addition to the above, we have prepared 21 new event encounters for you! You voted that you wanted to see more of a variety with encounters, so we've made sure that there are plenty of new experiences. To stray away from injured animals, we have focused on the good side of humans, endangered species, and spreading more awareness.

Some encounters will appear when Tier 2 unlocks, and others will be released when Tier 3 unlocks.



Lastly, we have new year-round crafting recipes released this month!

Drying Shells

25x Murex Shells, 10x Large Rock, 2x Rotting Log, 10x Coconut

Mukombero


We're reminding everyone in advance that Tier 2 will unlock a special, rare encounter that will guarantee you receive a unique breeding item. Mukombero's effects, coupled with special breeding circumstances, will let you produce a cub with the Primal (Ferus) variation.
Unlocking Tier 3 will boost the encounter's rate of appearance!

Good luck, and good night!

Poacher Chase Minigame


This year, we see the return of Poacher Chase, a reskin of August's Fire Escape! It will be available in the Games section of Crossroads. Once a day, you will earn Prevent Points and Rhino Beetles for sending scores in Poacher Chase!

For those unfamiliar with the game, this sidescrolling infinite platformer will speed up as you progress. You have to jump over obstacles and collect Rhino Beetles! We advise you to get used to the game's pace before you decide to send your score - it's worth it to practice first.
