Free Cake Expires Tonight at Midnight!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Hopefully you and your bunnies and Pufflings have enjoyed having Free Cake for every meal over the past week in celebration of our fourth birthday!

Just to remind you, though--a steady diet of Free Cake is bound to disagree with you, sooner or later. So remember! Tonight, Thursday night, at midnight SLT, the Free Cake will vanish, and your pets will be hungry for their regular food once again. It takes 72 hours for a bunny who is 0% hungry to go all the way to 100% and hibernation, so it's okay to feed them tomorrow, but do remember to feed them.

Once the Free Cake stupor wears off, and the Flying Monkey Bunnehs have retreated to their roost atop the Wicked Witch's castle, we'll be looking ahead to longer days and the end of winter. Oz is a beautiful country in any season, but Ozma is getting tired of rescuing young bunnies and Pufflings from deep snowdrifts, and is eager to see what 2014 will bring!

Oziversary: Ozimals Turns Four Years Old Today!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

That's right! January 9th, 2010, is the day the first Ozimals bunnies hopped home with their new friends! We are celebrating our Oziversary in a myriad of ways this week--read on for the details!

Flying Monkey Bunneh 2014 limited edition elite!

First--do not be alarmed! Flying monkeys can strike terror into the hearts of even the most stalwart residents of Oz, but here is a secret: despite their simian aspects, these are bunnies in flying monkey disguises, not actual scary flying monkeys! This limited-edition Oziversary elite will only be available through the month of January, and each pack contains one ten-charge nest dye in addition to the elite nest. These nests will produce a random-gender Flying Monkey Bunneh 2014 elite, with unlocked ears and shade. What that means is that any currently available ear type or shade can appear on your new bunny, rather than the limited set on standard "starter" bunnies available from Ozimals.

Free cake! Not a lie!

Next... FREE CAKE! Each box of cake costs L$0 and contains free cake in levels 1, 2, and 3. This food will feed bunnies and Pufflings for one week, until midnight SLT on Thursday night, January 16, 2014. When the clock strikes midnight, the cake will disappear, so please remember to replace your pets' regular food when the cake is gone! Also included in the box are unscripted decorative cake slices, in case you'd like to keep a cake memento, build a tower of cake, wear cake as a hat, etc--these will not feed your pets, however.

Bunnies and cake are available from:

Ozimals Main Store
Ozimals Satellite Shop @ Shamrock Market

Congratulations, birthday bunnies! In previous years, we have awarded a year's worth of free food to any active bunny on the grid whose birthday is also January 9th, 2010. This year, we are expanding and improving this offer to include active bunnies born during the first week of Ozimals: January 9 - 16, 2010. We've made the list, and the owners of these bunnies will receive a special limited-edition Archetype food that will feed one bunny for 365 days! (Or two bunnies for 182 and a half days, or four bunnies for 91 and a quarter days, or... )

The fine tradition of Ozimals Bunny Bingo will be returning this week, too! Win prizes, hang out with others in the Ozimals community, and wear goofy hats! Watch for a post soon with the Bingo schedule!

For those of you who are curious about every detail of the bunnies, we have added some new sections to the Ozimals wiki! Linked from the front page of the Bunny Manual, there are three new pages. Version History summarizes the changes made in each update, and special events that took place during those times. Elites List details all of the elite bunnies, including what type they are and when they were available. Trait Timeline lists all of the furs, eyes, shades, and ears, with information about when they were introduced and how. For those of you wondering, "Now, was that eye from the Bumblebee elite or Update 1.6?", we hope this'll be helpful--it's also pretty amazing to see everything from four years of bunnies in one place, and to see how far we've come!

We hope you will all celebrate with us--at Bingo, on Flickr, or just sharing some cake with your bunnies! Whether you've been with us from day one, or got your first bunny today, we are so grateful for all of you, and for your support, your enthusiasm, your patience, and your love for your bunnies, all this time.

Contest Winners goodness! Also, Last Chance for Holiday releases!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Happy new year!

Today is the last chance for you to pick up limited-edition Holiday Pufflings Mr. & Mrs. Peppermint, as well as the Glitterfall bunnies from the Winter Holiday gacha! All of them will be returning to the North Pole sometime tomorrow, Saturday, January 4, 2014.

Now, to honor the contest winners from the Design-a-Bunny contest!

Oilell Pinion submitted a host of designs for characters from Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol". It was difficult to pick, but in the end, we used her Christmas Morning Scrooge--you know, when he's happy and sending small boys to buy gargantuan turkeys, not when he's angry and counting his money in the dark--as the basis for the Ebenezer 2013 elite.

Oilell Pinion contest entry / Scrooge, Christmas Morning

Many of Oilell's entries had an eye which became the eye style for all of the Winter Holiday bunnies.

Calantha Theas contest entry / Glitter Gifts

Calantha Theas's entries included this batch of multicolored Glitter Gift bunnies, while Ever Courtois submitted this sparkly bunny, "Just a Dustin'".

Ever Courtois contest entry / Just a Dustin'

These two designs were both used in developing the Glitterfall bunnies, as well as Dream, Cherish, and the Inspire elite, so both designers are winners!

Oilell Pinion contest entry / Angel

Last but definitely not least, Oilell Pinion's "Angel" entry was the basis for the Guardian elite.

In other news, Ozma has perfected her green cake recipe, so we'll be making an announcement about Ozimals's fourth birthday in a matter of days!

Stay tuned, stay warm, and much <3
