Scholarship Fundraiser in BW2 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

The season of high school graduation is almost upon us (well, in some parts of the world it is already happening!) As students graduate their minds fill with questions about their future: What should they do now? Can they get a job that they love? Should they continue their studies? These are important questions.

We know that many students really enjoy video games. In fact, they could be considered experts at playing video games and this expertise can be the start of a career in the video game industry. Obviously, students will need more than the ability to play video games, but the passion for playing games is very common in the video game industry.

We want to help students to get the skills to work in the video game industry. To this end, we have been working with high schools to provide student work experience opportunities for the past year. We are now working with the video game industry in Victoria to set up scholarships to the University of Victoria (Computer Science) and Camosun College (Graphic Arts). The scholarships help inspired students start their journey towards a career in the video game industry.

To that end, we have a special quest for you to do!

Talk to Misha in the Commons and help them get ready for University! For every player who completes Misha's quest-line before Friday at noon, we'll increase our contribution to the scholarships!

If you want to help out more, you can buy the adorable Grad Kitten for only $5! Its has an increased chance to find puzzle pieces bonus!

The quest and the sale will run until Friday May 29th at Noon PDT.

Talk about it on the forums!

Hi Breakers!

Moms are great. To celebrate their moms, the monkeys of the islands have invited the Challenge Fairy to visit with an all-new Mother's Day burst event!

For the duration of the event, special challenge eggs will temporarily appear alongside normal challenge eggs. The Mother's Day challenges will be obviously different from the normal challenges. Players can earn tokens to purchase 12 event prizes of scenes honouring moms, with three additional rare prizes for the toughest of the tough challenges: a Box of Chocolates for your trophy room, a Mom Hammer which adds more Star wins, and a cool Cardboard Happy Mother's Day Hat which adds more Stars!

Don't want to play? We've introduced a deactivate button. If you go into the Challenge Fairy monkey, you can turn off the event eggs appearing. Plus because there are so many monkeys now, there is a new island! If you can't find a monkey, just keep scrolling left!

2015 Gorgeous Garden Photo Contest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

The Gorgeous Garden Contest starts today!

We want to see YOUR talented, artistic skills at gardening/art. It's super easy to get started, just start growing plants. When you've got enough, you can begin to lay out your designs in the event area. Once you've managed to get at least a D from each of the judges, you're golden for entering the contest!

How the Contest Works

When you're ready, talk to the photographer (he's got a yellow ! above his head) and have him take a picture of your fantasy garden. You can submit as many times as you would like, but only your most recent submission will get the votes. Each time you do submit a screenshot, your votes will reset, so plan carefully! Submissions will be accepted until *Friday, May 15th, 2015, - Noon PDT.*

You Get to Vote!

YOU get to vote too! The coveted 'User's Choice' award is picked by the Bush Whacker Community, and has a prize of 50 Bush Bucks! You can vote for as many submissions as you like, and at the end of the event the top submission as voted by YOU the players will be awarded the prize.

Changes from Last Year:
  • Asking to visit the contest or the voting page no longer takes you outside the game; it simply loads the contest/voting page over top it! Finished voting? You can easily return to the event area by clicking "Back to Game" at the bottom of the screen. Easy as pie!

  • Can't decide between two layouts? That’s ok! You now have a way to say "Next Please," and two new images will be loaded up for you!

  • Tired of seeing the same layouts previously? We've improved the system, you should see the same layouts repeated far more infrequently now.

You can vote until *Monday, May 18, 2015 @ Noon PDT.*

And the CNE winners are...

At the end of the event, the entire Codename Entertainment Studio will review the submissions and choose their favourites, with 3 lucky players per platform being awarded prizes of 250, 200, and 150 Bush Bucks for first, second and third. All winners will be published in the blog when we've made our decision.

Start Growing!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the seeds?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the judges?
    No, judges do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests.

  • Do I have to do the achievements?
    No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

  • Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.
