Eggstravaganza Egg and Pet Guide

Happy Thursday, jammers! Elvis here with a brand new Eggstravaganza pet guide! Thanks to the incredible work by artist and Instajammer 1y2e3r4u, you can now predict what kind of features your pet might have when it hatches! These Night of the Phantoms themed eggs will be available all of October in the Diamond Shop for the price of 3 diamonds. Within three days your egg will hatch and you’ll have yourself a new pet poodle moth, millipede, or baby vulture. While we can’t predict what animal your egg will hatch into, we hope this key helps you in decorating your egg!

Masterpiece Monday #17

Salutations, Jammers! I’m King, and today I’ll be showcasing four different masterpieces. How about we get started?

FullSizeRender.jpg

Our first piece is made by Pleasenosuddenmoves. I adore this masterpiece not only because it’s of a member of my favorite band, but it’s gorgeously done! I love the detail on Tyler’s skin, and his glassed are well made- especially the glare! Additionally, the anatomy amd shading is awesome for this monochrome piece.

FullSizeRender.jpg

 Masternibblenugetts has made an adorable cat masterpiece. The effects on this are gorgeous, and the blending is fantastic! I love the background as well, the colors go so nicely together! All in all, this is a very well-done piece.

FullSizeRender.jpg

Next up, we have a wonderful scenery piece by tigernations! I absolutely love how the colors are used, though the palette is so pleasing.  With the limitations of the AJ paint studio, this artist certainly did a great job!

FullSizeRender.jpg

Last but not least brings us Creativelight’s anthropomorphic raccoon artwork! The Golden lineart makes the character pop, and the white background has the same affect on the piece. Finally, the items are so well done ame this artist has an amazing style!

Well, that’s it for today. I’ll see you next week, and be sure to play wild!

Thursday Update: 100,000,000 Jammers

Good Thursday evening, Jammers! Today is September 13th, 2018. Yet another update day! This week AJHQ has released plenty of new announcements and an important milestone for Wildworks as a company and Animal Jam as a game.

On the first page of the Jamaa Journal, AJHQ reminds Jammers that the Bounce House is now for sale once again in the Diamond Shop!

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 7.30.23 PM.png

Next up, an important announcement on the game’s chat system: Safe Chat - Plus for ALL JAMMERS! That means non-members can now switch their account’s chat mode to “Free Chat” (with parent/guardian permission via the parent dashboard).

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 7.30.30 PM.png

If you are unsure how to do this. simply have your parent go to the “Parents” tab on the homepage, log in to the parent dashboard (using the email linked to your account) and change over the chat mode to “Safe Chat - Plus”! If your parents are skeptical, you can reassure them that the chat system is still safely moderated and filtered. For more on AJHQ’s safety policies, click here!

Next up in the Jamaa Journal is a game-changing feature. AJHQ has released the FIRST NEW NON-MEMBER LAND DEN! Previously, only the small house and sunken ship were available to players without membership. Now, there are two to chose from! Although the layout of the dens are the same, we may expect more non-member den updates in the future. Not only is this den non-member, but it' is a seasonal recreation. The first of it’s kind! It makes us on the Archives team wonder… will there be more of these seasonal releases?

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 7.31.56 PM.png

Of course this event isn’t completely out of the blue; AJHQ is celebrating their ONE HUNDRED MILLION PLAYER MILESTONE! In case that sounds like an insane number- it most certainly is. How big is it exactly? Well, take a look at all of the banners around Jamaa!

Don’t forget, Jammers, September 22nd is World Rhino Day! To honor these majestic endangered animals, be sure to pick up a pet rhino for 2 diamonds or show your support by buying a rhino for only 500 gems for the next two weeks. Want some rhino assets for your next edit? Click here to go to our updated collection!

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 7.32.36 PM.png

On the penultimate (second to last) page of the Journal, AJHQ makes a few statements on their change of seasonal adventures; by the next update, Tiki Trouble will no longer be in the adventures tab. However, the annual special Halloween pet adventure, Bitter Sweets, will take its place!

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 7.33.34 PM.png

Finally, a few words about the beloved Diamond Shop. Autumn armor will now be sold in stores! And of course, the 100,000,000 banners are now on display in every land in Jamaa.

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 7.33.19 PM.png

We hope you Jammers enjoyed ths late-night Thursday article! Be sure to check the Archives for weekly posts and updates, asset packs, and more!

Today in Jamaa History: Saved from Endangerment

Hey jammers! Yellow here with a rapid fire TiJH post because it's almost 11pm and I have school tomorrow. Let's get right in. First, we have the return of the first animal to be taken out of stores and then brought back. It's monkeys!

Picture 1.png

Monkeys were temporarily out of stores to show that they were endangered. After jammers from all across Jamaa raised 100 million gems they returned!

Picture 7.png

This was a very monkey themed update! Along with a brand new party, the first monthly member gift pet was released! A monkey of course. Member gifts will be a big topic here on AJA coming soon...

Picture 8.png

Just gonna brush Brady to the side here, sorry. But PLANTS! Treetop gardens 6 years ago today and it was the best thing to ever happen for nature den decorators. The shop originally sold all the plants you see there.

Picture 9.png

Finally, it's announced the first summer carnival is coming to a close, but a new gems to ticket booth was being added. I remember before this machine it was such a pain to get tickets!

Thats all for today Jammers! See you next time.

FullSizeRender.jpg

Finally, but definitely not least, Nimadoodle has drawn an exceptional piece of a rodent-type creature. My eyes instantly set on the cool, dark colors, as well as the transition of them, too. To add on, the purple of the background makes the creature pop!

That’s it for the masterpieces, but wait- how do you get your piece shown here? Excellent question, my friend. Just shoot us an email at support@animaljamarchives.com with an attachment of your masterpiece and with the title of Masterpiece Monday Submission!

Today in Jamaa History: Meet Cosmo launches

Hey there Jammers! Ryanec1 here. You guys may not recognize my name, but I am filling in for Yellow for this issue of Today in Jamaa History!  

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 3.25.00 PM.png

On August 22, 2013, exactly 5 years ago today, Volume 97 of the Jamaa Journal announced the release of the Meet Cosmo adventure! On this day, it made its debut for members-only testing. In fact, on this day when Meet Cosmo was released, players had their first chance ever to interact with Cosmo! When released for members-only testing, the only mode available was the normal mode. The hard mode of the adventure was released less than a month later on September 12, 2013. Later that year, the adventure ultimately was released to all jammers on November 7, 2013.

I really hope this Today in Jamaa History post was an interesting read! Have a spectacular day, Jammers!
-Ryanec1

Masterpiece Monday #11

 Nymphaeaalba’s flower piece really caught my attention while looking through masterpieces. The lettering is gorgeous, and the shape of the plant isn’t stunning and overall amazing.

FullSizeRender.jpg

Secondly is Taeteaa’s artwork of an anime-type girl. The way you draw her was amazing, and the black lineart takes piece to a whole new level. In addition, the colors are bright and stand out against each other.

FullSizeRender.jpg

Next up is Teddiboo’s phenomenal piece of a canine laying down sideways, face towards the sky. I love the interpretation of the pose, and the background makes the wolf stand out. To add on, the text was an awesome addition!

FullSizeRender.jpg

Last but not least is boop32’s desert/snake masterpiece. I love the AJ style, and the pet looks just like the real model. Finally, the background is such an awesome add-on.

If you’ve ever wanted your artwork showcased here, it’d be appreciated if you could email support@animaljamarchives.com your work and add the subject line Masterpiece Monday Submission. Thanks!

National Honeybee Day in Jamaa

Good afternoon, Jammers! Did you know this Saturday is National honeybee day? Check out this short little video to learn how you can celebrate these wonderful little insects in Jamaa!

Bee sure to comment on our blog posts and let us know what you think of video reports! And don't forget to check back with the Archives for mroe game updates, news, and assets.

Today in Jamaa History: Colorful Creative Crocodiles

Hey Jammers! Yellow here, and today I've got another newspaper and update for us to take a look at! This was a rather large update back in 2011, so let's dive right in to... Oh my.

9_1.png

Hello there Brady! The first page of the newspaper features a video, something not common in the news these days. Unfortunately this video seems to be lost to time as I couldn't find a re-upload. But turning the page, we get into the meat and potatoes of this update. This isn't just a salad, no no no. This is the mom's spaghetti of 2011. (I'm hungry, sorry!)

Crocodiles came to Jamaa! Nowadays it's rare to seem them around, but back then, these were... also rare animals it seems, according to the paper. They also started out with female eyes, unlike today, and it's the only animal to ever do so.

But that's not even all! That's right, TWO large updates were on a single page. You could change the color of den items! Jammers seem to take this for granted now, but this was HUGE. Finally, a den didn't have to be a miss-match of colors. After a page about online safety, another big announcement dropped on page three.

9_3.png

Today in Jamaa History, hamsters were added to the game! Wow, the 6th pet. We've come along way haven't we? These pets were members only on their release.

Thats all for today Jammers, cya around!

Update Thursday & Wild Weekend

Good Thursday afternoon, Jammers! Today is yet another update day for AJHQ, and they are releasing all kinds of fantastic news for the game and the lore of Jamaa! Let's dive into the Journal.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 6.10.33 PM.png

First up, the new Wild Weekend sale theme! This week, Prank Weekend is here; you can get all sorts of prank den items in the Diamond Shop along with some wacky new clothing items! All den items are 1 diamond each, and buying a full set of the clothing items only costs 9 diamonds!

Of course you'll need a new animal to put all these crazy clothes on. Introducing the Autumn Coyote! Similar to the Spring Bunny and Polar Arctic Fox, this animal has its own aura of colorful leaves! All of the same actions of a regular coyote, just with a unique pattern (and better eyeliner).  Looking for some assets of these new coyotes? Click HERE to go to our latest asset page.

Now, for anyone following Animal Jam lore, this part of the update might interest you! Many things about Juno have been revealed, including a message from the ancient hero themselves... plus, notes from the current Alphas Graham and Peck, and a new shop within the temple!

They reveal that in order to protect multiple packs within the area in a war with the Phantoms, Juno locked themself in the temple to protect Balloosh, sealing the land with their own powers and turning to stone. Who are these new maysterious figures: Star and Fang?

Aside from the tragic story of Juno's transformation, all Jammers can still honor the great hero with these new den items in the new store: Ancient Treasures. There are 6 new Juno-themed items including their own flag!

However, this code Juno mentions is no joke! Be sure to redeem the code "Juno" in settings for a Hidden Juno statue!

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 6.31.34 PM.png

Next up, Animal Jam announces the celebration of National Honeybee Day! All Jammers can get a pet bee and learn about them by clicking on fact banners around Jamaa! Don't forget to check out Jam Mart Furniture for plenty of bee-themed items such as honey combs and bee boxes.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 6.12.01 PM.png

The following page mentions a new exhibit in the Conservation Museum: Wild Peaks! While it doesn't tell us about the Alphas, it's a fantastic way to learn about new animals and their habitats. On an unrelated note but the same Journal page, double gems can be earned when you play Sky High this week.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 6.12.11 PM.png

And finally, a surprise announcement of new items to come in an abstract theme! Plus a little reminder that school is on the way, and many buddies are yet to be met!

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 6.12.20 PM.png
