Happy New Year Habitaters! We are hitting 2017 with force, starting with our largest and most significant update since the launch of Habitat the Game.
Habitat has always strived to connect our players to nature by encouraging them to get out and explore the world. Yet, we would be lying if we said we had not been inspired by Pokemon Go’s ability to get people outdoors.
That inspiration has led to a revamp of our unique pin system. Until today each pin would only appear in a single location. Now we can spread pins more widely, reaching more players.
Pin locations encourage players to explore their natural environment, from parks to waterways to urban green spaces. Players can collect pins that represent animals, locations or plants in their local areas and learn all about their pin.
These local pins can then be traded with other players from across the planet!
Our unique pin system incorporates exercise, education and gaming in the real world.
This new update combined with our recent surge in player numbers (15,000 in one day!) sets us up for a brilliant 2017.
We look forward to hearing from our players in the coming weeks! Please let us know places you think pins should appear in your neighborhood.
