The Advent Tree Is Back

Welcome to the month of December! It's one of the most festive times of year around Ark and this year there will be no shortage of holiday cheer too! The Advent Tree is available again for visiting every day in December for a special gift. You can find the link to it under the Explore dropdown.

Please do not visit the Advent Tree from your side accounts. Main accounts only here!

Make Sure You Have Cove Spaces

Some days of the month, the Advent Tree will give you a creature. However, you must have Cove Spaces available on your account in order for this to happen. If you don't, the Advent Tree will simply skip giving you its most beloved creatures. Manage your Cove spaces here.

The Cornivore

November 21, 2018 at 12:00 AM 19 Comments

A Genetically Modified Crazy Cornstalk

The Cornivore has arrived at the Science and Research Center in Ark City, without having to fund any research (it seems the SARC may have used some leftover EC from a previous fund!). It seems that this creature was part of a research project that began a few years ago, as outlined in its Archives entry:

Cornivores are a genetically modified organism created by the Science and Research Center in Ark City. Research began to find a freeze-resistant strain of corn a few years back and the Cornivore is the culmination of that research. The Cornivore can indeed withstand freezing temperatures and not die but there was another unexpected side effect from the experimentation: the Cornivore likes to devour other plants (all others except corn). This makes them an incredibly dangerous invasive species.

They are available for purchase from the Creature Labs for 1,000,000 EC each.

Support the Efni Fund

The Efni is still being actively researched at the Science and Research Center. The fund is nearly halfway to its goal. More support is needed!
