30 March 2021

Get Eggscited for an Eggstraordinary Season!
New Eggs, New Interface, and a New Merchant!!

Spring has Sprung!

The season of renewal has returned to the Kingdom of Gnawnia and with it comes many eggsciting new things! This year the Spring Egg Hunt has a brand new interface, new eggs, new rewards, and even a whole new merchant!

While much has changed this year, the egg hunting remains the same. To get started, you'll need a special egg-finding piece of equipment called an Eggscavator. If you do not already own one, you can purchase one for 10,000 gold from the brand new Spring Egg Hunt heads-up display. So grab yourself an Eggscavator and get ready for an eggsceptional season!

A New Merchant has Arrived in the Kingdom!

A new merchant has travelled to the Kingdom of Gnawnia to celebrate the coming of Spring: Lady Laura, the Chocolatier! But she is no ordinary Chocolatier; Lady Laura is a master of the lost art of CocoAlchemy which gives her the ability to wield the mighty power of the purest chocolate known to science: Chocolatonium!

Unfortunately, while travelling to the Kingdom her caravan was raided by greedy, chocolate-obsessed mice who stole all of her Chocolatonium! Collect the stolen Chocolatonium from the Spring event mice that are roaming all over the Kingdom. These mice are so plentiful right now that you won't even need cheese to attract them!

Return the Chocolatonium to Lady Laura to unlock the shelves in her Chocolate Shop and she'll show her gratitude by presenting you with special, one-time rewards for unlocking each shelf. Once a shelf has been unlocked, you'll be able to purchase the items on that shelf with Chocolatonium anytime during the event

Spring Mice and Spring Eggs

The Chocolatonium has driven the Spring event mice into such a frenzy that they are no longer confined to specific stockpile locations. You'll now find these mice EVERYWHERE in the Kingdom! They're so abundant that you no longer need special cheese to attract them. In fact, you don't need any cheese at all!

The Spring event mice are now all exclusively bonus hunts meaning they'll occasionally wander into your trap without consuming cheese or charms and without affecting any area gameplay progression. The Spring mice will always drop Chocolatonium when caught.

As with previous years, certain Spring mice will also drop the yearly Spring eggs when caught. These eggs can no longer be doubled with Eggstra Charms but to compensate their contents have been made more lucrative this year! Cracking these new versions of the Spring eggs open will provide TWICE as much SUPER|brie+ from previous years as well as some new items! The new 21K Golden Egg is eggspecially packed with goodies this year!

New Eggs

This year there are 20 brand new eggs to find! You will need your trusty Eggscavator to find them so make sure you pick one up before you head out!

  • Balack the Banished Egg
  • Zurreal Egg
  • Corky, the Collector Egg
  • Runny Egg

The Eggsweeper Has Returned!

MouseHunt Eggsweeper is a mini-game about finding eggs which is only available during the seasonal event about finding eggs. That's a lot of eggs!

There are 10 eggs hidden somewhere in the field and you need to reveal them all to earn rank-specific rewards! Each tile you reveal costs 1 Eggsweeper Shovel. When you reveal a tile, you will either be shown a number or an egg. The number shown is a clue representing how many eggs are hidden in nearby tiles (diagonals included). If you reveal an egg, you get a special Eggsweeper Egg added to your inventory based on your hunter title.

Eggsweeper Egg Tiers by Title Range

  • Tier 1: Novice to Journeyman/Journeywoman
  • Tier 2: Master to Lord/Lady
  • Tier 3: Baron/Baronness and Count/Countess
  • Tier 4: Duke/Duchess and up (now with Floating Islands loot!)

These eggs will contain loot appropriate for areas in the Kingdom tied to the hunter ranks. You can find a few Eggsweeper Shovels in each of this year's Spring Eggs including a whopping 60 inside of this year's Golden Egg! You can also find them in your Daily Loyalty Chest, Lady Laura will gift you some for unlocking each of the shelves in her Chocolate Shop, or you can purchase them from the Premium Shop.

For even more eggstraordinary rewards, dust your Eggsweeper field with Magical Fertilizer before you start the mini-game! All the eggs found in a fertilized field will be eggsploding with even more amazing loot!

  • 10 Eggsweeper Shovels
Dig, dig, dig!
  • Eggsweeper Starter Pack
Reap what you sow!
  • Eggsweeper Starter Pack

Spring Egg Hunt Supply Kits and Gift Baskets

Eggscavating and egg hunting is a lot of work! Here are this year's supplies, gift baskets, and kits to help you on your journey to Egg Master!

  • Eggstreme Hunting Bundle
An Eggstreme Deal! (Limit 3)
  • 2021 Spring Hunt Trap Skin Bundle
Three New Skins! (Limit 1)
  • Spring Hunt Gardener Bundle
Can You Dig It? (Limit 3)

  • 5 Eggstra Charms
More Eggs!
  • 20 Eggstra Charge Charms
More Eggs and Chocolatonium!


Chocolatonium has a highly unstable atomic structure and therefore only has a very short half-life. Any pure Chocolatonium exposed to the open air will undergo radioactive decay after only four weeks and even when it's properly contained within a hunter's inventory, it will only last an additional two weeks.

As of April 27, 2021, mice will no longer drop Chocolatonium and eggs no longer be found in the Kingdom.

As of May 11, 2021, any Chocolatonium that remains in a hunter's inventory will decay into nothingness!

Make sure to spend it all at the Chocolate Shop while you can!

The grand tour is coming to an end
Claim one final crate and make sure to spend SUPER|tokens+ and spare Factory Parts!

Factory Tours Ending

The King is winding down tours of his secret SUPER|brie+ Factory which will soon return to its hiding place under the Rodentia Ocean. With news of the factory's imminent submersion the mice at the factory are beginning to scatter! As a result, fewer breeds of event mice can be encountered and mice are no longer carrying Coggy Colby or Factory Parts.

The King knows halting an assembly line can be dangerous, and as such, any hunters currently on a tour can finish pumping and claim one more reward crate, assuming they have enough Coggy Colby and/or Factory Repair Charms to complete the process.

SUPER|brie+ Factory is Closing
Factory Parts and Coggy Colby are no longer loot drops
Hunters may claim one more reward crate

Final Parts and Tickets

Should you have any spare Factory Parts or unspent Golden Punch Tickets make sure to browse the various shops at the SUPER|brie+ Factory to use these supplies up. Once the SUPER|brie+ Factory returns to hiding, these items will expire and be removed from any hunters' inventories. Similarly, any unused SUPER|tokens+ will expire when the factory returns to hiding, so make sure to visit the SUPER|snax+ machine!

The various birthday-themed Treasure Maps can now be claimed for consolation prizes should you not have event supplies to attract the correct mice, or are simply ready to depart the SUPER|brie+ Factory.

Final note: Birthday Skin Pattern pieces do not expire and will not be removed from inventories. You're free to hold onto those festive scraps of wrapping paper for next year!

In other news...

After much diligent study, the Cartographer within the Valour Rift has navigated the time-bending realities of the Valour Rift to successfully map that section of the rift and has discovered hiding spots for treasure! Hunters can visit the Valour Rift Cartographer to pick up a new Valour Rift Scroll Case. This case contains a treasure map that will have you and your friends track down clues within the Valour Rift in search of a treasure chest.

Completing this journey through time and space will reward you with a Valour Rift Treasure Chest, or a rare version if you use Rare Map Dust. These chests contain Gold, Points, Ancient Charms, Gauntlet Elixir, and some rift-powered charms to help your adventures in the Valour Rift.

The chests also contain a unique, yet unstable item called a Celestial Timechest. This chest is in tune with the fragmented reality of the Valour Rift, making its contents vary based on your mastery of the celestial timescape of the rift. The contents of this chest will increase depending on the highest floor you have explored during Ultimate Umbra. The rewards increase at floor 16, 32, 48, 64, and reach their maximum if a hunter has ever reached floor 80.

But wait! That's not all the discoveries ticking away from the Valour Rift! Using this new knowledge of the rift timescape, the Trapsmith at the Valour Rift has designed a new skin for the Chrome Celestial Dissonance and the Floating Islands General Store owner has stocked a new Valour Rift themed airship cosmetic! Make sure to browse each respective shop to check out these new wares.

The Factory will Close on March 30
Spend Golden Punch Tickets, SUPER|tokens+, and spare Factory Parts!

MouseHunt's 13th Birthday

2 March 2021

Tour (and defend) the SUPER|brie+ Factory!
Embark on a tour of the King's hidden SUPER|brie+ Factory and earn cheese in the process!

MouseHunt's 13th Birthday Celebration!

March 7 will mark the 13th year of MouseHunting! To celebrate, the King is once again opening the doors of his secret SUPER|brie+ Factory for a behind the scenes look at how the magical cheese is made. Of course swinging the doors open on a factory pumping out the tastiest cheese known to mice is sure to create a minor vermin problem.

While taking in the sights, hunters are asked to setup camp to help defend the factory and recover assembly line parts that have been picked up by the invading mice. There's SUPER|brie+, the Anniversary Aura, Party Charms, and more to earn!

An especially rich addition this year: The SUPER|brie+ Factory Break Room has seen the addition of the SUPER|snax+ Vending Machine stocked with snack packs of tasty cheese!

Start your factory tour today!
The SUPER|brie+ Factory will close its doors on March 23

Mastering Cheese Production

Pump cheese though the assembly line of the SUPER|brie+ Factory by hunting mice attracted to either Coggy Colby or the all new Speedy Coggy Colby. Arming either of these types of cheese will attract mice running amok in the factory and capturing them will allow the delicious cheese to flow!

You can collect Coggy Colby by hunting with any standard cheese type at the factory. You'll find some Speedy Coggy Colby as a reward for completing the SUPER|brie+ Factory Adventure, along with other nifty adventure rewards!

  • 15 Coggy Colby Cheese
Activate your pump!
  • 15 Speedy Coggy Colby
+10 litres per catch!

Take cheese production to revolutionary levels of industrialization by using Factory Repair Charms! These mechanical wonders will activate your pump each catch and add an additional +10 liters per catch, even if you don't have Coggy Colby armed. Additionally, Factory Repair Charms have a chance of attracting the Factory Repair Technician Mouse who drops a generous quantity of factory repair parts! Have extra factory parts? Visit the Charm Shoppe where you can exchange excess parts for more of these charms.

  • 150 Factory Repair Charm
Pumps +10 litres per catch
  • Speedy Repair Gift Basket
Industrious gift idea!

Once the cheese is pumped all the way through the assembly line you'll encounter Vincent, The Magnificent! Year after year this mouse stakes claim to the SUPER|brie+ Factory as their own personal cheese production facility!

You'll need to capture Vincent before the SUPER|brie+ reward crate can be claimed. Capturing Vincent will also reward a Golden Punch Ticket which you can spend at the various shops at the SUPER|brie+ Factory for rewards.

Touring the Factory

There are four rooms to tour within the SUPER|brie+ Factory, each with a unique population of mice to encounter and factory repair part to recover as loot. Hunters are free to move to and from any room taking in the sights and hunting down different types of invading mice.

The Mixing Room

The Force Fighter Five mice have taken an interest in this room and have grabbed hold of the Mixing Rods being used. Upgrade this room to increase the quantity of SUPER|brie+ found in the reward crate.

The Break Room

Upgrade this room to distract the mice long enough to find some of their lunch money! Upgrading this room will increase the number of SUPER|tokens+ found in the reward crate which you can spend at the SUPER|snax+ Vending Machine via the HUD for various bags of tasty cheese.

The Pump Room

Various time-controlling mice have synchronized themselves with this room and are using the Pressurized Pump Pipes in their own study of time control. Upgrade this room to restore normal pressure in the production pipeline and pump more liters of cheese with each hunt, speeding up how quickly the reward crate fills.

The QA Room

Various cupcake mice have setup shop in the QA Room where they're using the Quality Cogs to fine-tune and carefully calibrate their own Cupcake Recipes. Upgrade this room to increase efficiency to have more SUPER|brie+ converted into Empowered SUPER|brie+ within the reward crate as well as extend the Anniversary Aura by a greater amount each time you claim the reward crate.

Golden Punch Tickets and Tasty Rewards

For your assistance in helping pump cheese the King will grant you a portion of SUPER|brie+ when you reach the end of the assembly line! Each full crate of SUPER|brie+ you pump will also extend the Anniversary Aura and reward a quantity of SUPER|tokens+ which you can spend at the SUPER|snax+ vending machine for a variety of cheese.
