Due to popular demand the 8bit Goat is now available to craft by turning in a Star Collar AD, Game Kid, and a Hero Sword!
To craft, just go to the Shopping District (click 'Shop' in the left menu) then scroll down to the Members Alley and click Crating! If you forget what items are needed to make something check out the recipe books!
This special Goatling is a member design by @Jenny ! Make sure to give them a little extra love today!
Two magically gorgeous Goatlings have been discovered in the Enchanted Forest Explore Areas! Unigoat has been prancing around Enchanted Forest Map 4 and Pointeling has been spotted dancing near the Enchanted Forest Map 5 area. Do you dare challenge these beauties?
These special Goatlings are member created designs! Unigoat was designed by @sourgoat and Pointeling was designed by @myouna! And special thanks to sourgoat who touched up the artwork and created the Appearance Dolls! Make sure to give them both a little extra love today as thanks!
Note: The value of Explore Area Appearance Dolls have been updated accordingly. They were a little out of balance.
Just wanted to make a quick announcement that the Phantom Forest IS returning soon so that means the Gnoff Baddy, Bogg Baddy, and Vampling Goatling are returning as well. They never retired. Really sorry for any confusions about them!
Explore Areas and their inhabitants don't retire. More baddys and Goatlings will actually be added to the current Explore Areas over time! We have around 11 different Explore Areas planed for the future! We actually have a world map too that shows the locations of the Explore Areas in the Goatlings world I just haven’t found a good place to put it on the site yet! I think on the Explore page will be good! Perhaps Ill do that today! ^^
We apologize for the unexpected downtime! The cause behind it is still a little bit of a mystery. We think it was just a small error from our host but we are taking no chances! We have reenforced security to the database and as a result Diamond Dust cannot be purchased rite now. We will get that updated soon though.
If you see any strange new errors, or bugs, or broken pages, or anything out of the ordinary, please let me know asap!
Thank you for being great fans and welcome back!!!
EDIT: Diamond Dust can be purchased again!
And I heard back from my Host! Turns out the site was SO busy yesterday it overloaded the server a little which affected a few of their other clients so they had to close Goatlings temporarily! Oops! So this means if the site continues to become more and more popular we will need to upgrade our host service witch will cost a little more but thats fine because more people will be able to enjoy the site!
There has been a little update to the Goatlings Gift Shop! The main gift shop is now located at Redbubble. You can now get awesome Goatling stickers, tshirts, and hoodies there! The old gift shop was located at Storenvy.com. It is on hiatus rite now but we may reopen it again in the future for snugable Goatling plushies!
This special Goatling has been prepared to thank the generous supporters who have purchased Diamond Dust! All funds go to paying off the programing bill so it really helps the site! He can be found in the Cash Shop! This special Goatling is a member design by Ninth! Make sure to give them a little love today as thanks!
