Here's what we're working on this week in Prodigy:
1. Bonfire Spire
Just like Firefly forest, Shiverchill mountain and Skywatch before it, Bonfire Spire has gotten some TLC and is new and improved!
Some of the features of this newly re-worked zone include:
- 15 new quests with new stories
- 5 new characters
- 19 new zone areas
- New achievements
- New equipment
As with the other zones, you'll need to complete the prior zone and collect the gem in order to move on to Bonfire Spire. If you haven't done that yet, hop to it so you can enjoy this delicious new zone!
If you manage to finish the quests, you're not done yet! We've hidden some secrets in there that can only be found once all the zone quests are complete. Can you find them?
2. New Chat
At Prodigy, we're always looking to find ways for our wizards to be social but understand that parents and teachers are rightly concerned about the safety and privacy of their children and students.
With that in mind, we've expanded the in-game chat but in a way that will serve to ensure that those in your charge are safe.
We've done so using a series of pre-written words and phrases. Here's what it looks like in action:
Using this system, the wizard simply starts typing what they'd like to say and a list of available phrases will appear. Then, they just have to click one of the phrases to say it out loud in the Prodigy world for others to read.
No custom text can be included and students are restricted to only the pre-written phrases that we've included so you can rest assured that while Prodigy is more social, it's been done in a manner which is safe and secure to use.
If you liked the emoticons, they're still there and can be accessed by selecting the happy face icon to the right of the chat's text box.
We sure hope you like the changes that we've made! As always our team is hard at work to make Prodigy more exciting and engaging all the time.
