YoVille Now A YoWorld!


, , , , , ,

yoworld_logo_formerly1Good news to YoVillians! YoVille is coming back! On May 12th (that’s today!), transfer of individual’s game data from Zynga is expected to complete and it will be known as YoWorld with a new owner (initial creator), Big Viking Games! I’m so excited! XD

YoVille is a virtual world game online originally developed by Tall Tree Games, now called Big Viking Games, which was later acquired byย Zynga in 2008. It was the first successful ‘Ville’ seriesย and the game hit millions active users monthly in no time.. Unfortunately though, the game became a breeding ground for hackers.. Low maintenance & repairsย and lack of multiple platformsย eventually led to its decision of shutting down in early 2014..

It was very disappointing.. Especially after Zynga had made a promise of not shutting down the game.. Loyal players continued to spend their time and money on it even though half of the game features were unavailable.. Only to find out the bad news later on.. :/ This caused a lot of commotion amongst the fans.. Protesting and threatening Zynga, many sent their concerns to its original creator – Big Viking Game to reacquire it back.. (which it did! thank you!), some even posted a heartfelt video on YouTube to save YoVille.. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Now YoVille renamed as YoWorld is going back home to its owner! How awesome is that.. XD I love how group of passionate people can make an honestย change.. (If only these can also be applied to real Eco-political problems we see in the news..)

Anyhow.. Thanks to Zynga for the past 5 years of memories they brought into people.. And Big Viking Game.. Shall we!? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Old Smileys


New Smileys

I’d like to dedicate this post to express my gratitude to WordPress for launching new smileys..! :mrgreen: Haha.. I almost sent my complaint about how the smileys were getting old school.. Finally my wish has been granted.. ๐Ÿ˜†

The new smileys are “cleaner, simpler, bigger, more expressive, and modern”. There’ll be more to be added in the collection they said.. And there are some secret emoticons too!? ๐Ÿ˜€

This is a great news especially for a smiley lover like me.. ๐Ÿ˜† So thank you WordPress! And keep up the good work.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

New emoticons:
