New Action Blocks & Campaigns!

Hi Everybody!

Our update today primarily focuses on increasing gameplay functionality within the game, with some of the items I know people have been asking for for years!

First, we have the long-awaited Silver Crown Doors & Gates, which only open and close after you’ve completed the level! These are included with the Gold Crown Doors & Gates.

Second, we have the long-awaited Low Jump ability! This means you can jump as low as the zombies do, but without being a zombie! It’s a new option within the “Jump” Ability Block.

Third, and the most exciting in my opinion, there is now the ability to enter an ID into World Portals! If set it to 0, entering it takes you to the regular spawn point, but now if you set it to the ID of the special new World Portal Spawn Point, you’ll enter the new level at a special preset location!

You receive these new spawn points with the same number of world portals you own! They are owner-only though, so only the world owner can place them. We also have a system in place to combat exploitation where you have to be the world owner (or at least in the crew) of both worlds (the one with the original world portal, and the one with the special spawn point). If you start trying to skip worlds or parts of levels, it’ll just spawn you to the regular spawn point!

Finally, we’ve expanded on the Candy Pack to finally include the Blue Candy block, as many people wanted that as well.

In addition to all this, we’re releasing the new Technology campaign! If you’re short on energy for World Portals, you can get some by completing it.

See you in game!

Super Summer Sales, Smileys, Sci-Fi, & Starfish!

Hi Everybody!

It’s officially summer! We’ve got some blasts from the past, along with some new content thrown into the mix with today’s update!

To start with, the Summer Campaign is back, and with a brand new level to complete! Successfully beat this new level to unlock the Starfish NPC in the store!

Next, we have two lovely new smileys in the form of Baseball Cap and Golfer smileys! How have we gotten 8 years into the existence of Everybody Edits without including a standard baseball cap? Well, now we have it!

Separately to summer, we’ve expanded the Sci-Fi Block Pack to include green and yellow panels and lights:

Finally, we have the largest sale we’ve ever had in Everybody Edits, with an astonishing 11 summery items on sale! Grab them before Autumn arrives!

Feel free to discuss this update on the Fan Forums!

NPCs For Everybody! New Campaigns!

Hi Everybody!

We wanted to break the boundaries and think outside the box with this update! You’ll see what I mean…

Meanwhile, NPCs are being released! We may still adjust the interface for them in future, but for now, everyone is able to get hold of their own little cuties hi!

We’re also launching even more NPCs, including the highly-requested straight-faced “Meh” NPC, along with the Knight, Cow, and the very special Froggy!

The Video Game 2 and Puzzle Pack 2 campaigns are now available for everybody as well! In addition, our talented Campaign Team has provided a campaign for all those veteran players out there who wish to relive their Everybody Edits childhoods in the form of the Nostalgia Campaign! *cue harp arpeggios*

Speaking of the Campaign Team, we have a new addition, and many of our community know him for his exceptional artistic creative level-building – It’s Ravatroll! He has assisted the staff on various projects for a number of years, including most notably the Tutorial Campaign, which we have also now extended with one new level to showcase many of the newer blocks from the past couple of years!

Finally, some of you may have spotted the central spike block we’ve added to complete the Spike Pack as well!

We hope you enjoy these additions, and see you in game!

Beta’s Back! NPCs, Sequels, & New Blocks!

Hi Everybody!

We’ve been working very hard on bringing you this epic update to the game!

hi! The biggest new feature we’ve incorporated is the brand new Non-Player Characters! These new action blocks can provide a little chat with smileys when you approach them. Interact with them when the little conversation bubble pops up by pressing “C”.

Although everyone is able to converse with these peeps, they do require some testing, so they’re only purchasable by players with Beta Access for the time being, and we’ll be aiming to launch them for everyone within the next two weeks.

In addition to this, another new feature we’re testing in Beta is the Campaign Unlock system, in which you have to complete a single or set of campaigns before unlocking an entirely new campaign. We’re starting simple though, so try to unlock the Video Game 2 and (finally) the Puzzle Pack 2 campaigns!

This update isn’t entirely for Beta players though, as we’re also introducing the Garden Pack, initially created by AzurePudding (& Team Puddato) for the Design Contest last year. We love this new pack, and hope you will as well!

As many of you know, Gosha recently joined our ranks as our newest member of staff, and he’s been working hard with ByteArray cleaning up things behind-the-scenes, which should result in a smoother playing experience for everyone!

Have fun!

Happy Easter!

Hi everyone!

Easter has taken over Everybody Edits! We hope you’ll enjoy this fun time of year hunting some fun little Easter Eggs possibly hidden around the game!

We’ve also included yet another sale! Get the Easter Egg decorations while they’re on offer!

Easter Sale

Finally, we’ve added a few general tweaks here and there, which we hope will make the general EE experience more fun for everyone!

Happy Hunting!

The Everybody Edits Long-Term Plan

Hi everyone!

My name is Chris Lamb, and I’m the new owner of Everybody Edits! I guess it was simply destined to return to someone named Chris.

As many of you may know, I’m a veteran player of EE, having played and built in it since 2010. I’m very passionate about the game, and have lots of ideas and plans for it going forward, so let’s launch into some of them, starting with the elephant in the room:

~ The Reboot ~

As I know most people would probably have just ignored most of this post to get to this part anyway, I figured I’d start with it! Our highly capable staff are looking into various options for how a rebooted version of the game might work. Joshua Stone (ByteArray) had this to say on the subject in his most recent Game Dev Log:

There have been a lot of discussions as far as the future of Everybody Edits within the team, and there’s a lot of stuff that I can’t really talk about just yet because, well, it’s not really decided – We’re just experimenting with different things. […] So I’m exploring what different options are there for an HTML5 version of the game, ‘cos it’s obvious there has to be an HTML5 version of the game in some form or another, whether it’s using Unity, exporting WebGl (which is HTML5), or coding something directly…

So there are a lot of exciting developments going on over plans for a full reboot of the game. We currently predict this will be ready for Beta Launch early into 2019, if not sooner! We don’t know at this stage what platform it will end up on, but we are exploring the most suitable and optimized options for widespread accessibility and performance, so everyone can enjoy the new version of the game! Who knows? Maybe we’ll even be able to produce an app…

~ 2018 ~

In the meantime, I’m sure you’d all like to know what’s to come for the current version of the game. We have plans of new content throughout the year, including a potential Lobby Overhaul, some massive changes to the Campaign System, and some cool new stuff for builders, some of which I’m pretty sure will pleasantly surprise you! Naturally, we’ll throw in the occasional new smiley for good measure. tongue

~ The Staff Team ~

We have a wonderful collection of people working on the game right now, split up into their teams:

Team Leaders:

  • Xenonetix – That’s me! Also known as Mega Lamb to many, I’ll be generally running the game, including managing all the teams, and leading the Campaign Team.
  • Showpath – Excelling at programming from multiple disciplines, Showpath will be leading our Development Team!
  • Kentiya – I’m sure many of you are aware of Kentiya’s exceptional graphical talents, so he’ll be leading our Graphics Team!
  • Phinarose – Having been a fantastic moderator for the game for almost a year now, I trust Phinarose to do an amazing job leading our Moderation Team!

Team Members:

  • ByteArray – Our newest developer, ByteArray is a great creative individual with some excellent concepts and ideas for the game, and we love having him on board!
  • LRussell – As the longest-running moderator, LRussell not only moderates the game, but also programs and maintains the software our moderators use, making life much easier for all of us!
  • Zoey2070 – The most community-focused of our team, Zoey2070 has proven herself to be a brilliant moderator, and is always excited to share her ideas and ambitions with the team!
  • Kirby – As a fellow EE veteran, Kirby has been an invaluable contributor to the team, coming up with great new plans for the future of the game and its community!
  • Master1 – A highly-respected member of the community, Master1 tries to find what the people really want to make sure enjoyment is elevated for everyone!

~ Support For The Future ~

We hugely appreciate any support you can give the game by purchasing gems. The funds will be put to good use to produce an epic reboot, and help us to advertise the game! We’re also considering launching a merchandise line, starting with Everybody Edits T-shirts! We don’t know exactly when this will happen yet, but we hope you look forward to this adventure into new beginnings as much as we do!

Hope to see you in-game soon!
