MouseHunt's 15th Birthday

28 February 2023

Set foot back into the SUPER|brie+ Factory!

Come see the secrets about how the Kingdom's Famous Cheese is made!

Happy birthday... to US!

MouseHunt will celebrate 15 years of MouseHunting on March 7, 2023! To mark this momentus occasion, the King has ordered the secret SUPER|brie+ Factory to be brought up from the depths of the Rodentia Ocean. Hunters can once again visit the fabled factory to get a in-depth look to see how SUPER|brie+ cheese is made.

While taking in the sights, hunters are asked to kindly 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!

Start your factory tour today!

On March 21 the SUPER|brie+ Factory rooms will no longer be upgradable and the mice will no longer drop parts.
Hunters can claim one more crate by pumping cheese and make their final purchases until March 28 when the factory will close its doors.

Mastering Cheese Production

Pump cheese through the assembly line of the SUPER|brie+ Factory by hunting mice with either Coggy Colby or Speedy Coggy Colby. Arming either of these cheeses will attract the rambunctious rodents wreaking havoc 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. If you're looking to speed up your cheese production, you can use Speedy Coggy Colby which allows you to pump an additional 10 litres per catch! Speedy Coggy Colby can be earned as a reward for completing the SUPER|brie+ Factory Adventure or purchased from the Premium Shop.

Take cheese production to revolutionary levels of industrialization by using Factory Repair Charms! These mechanical wonders will activate your pump 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! Visit the Charm Shoppe where you can use excess factory repair parts to purchase more of these useful charms.

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 of the SUPER|brie+ Factory on a selection of enticing goodies.

Exploring the Factory

There are four rooms to tour within the SUPER|brie+ Factory, each with a unique population of mice to encounter and a 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
Various dance party mice have taken over this room and are using the Circuit Breaker Fuses to power their boomboxes! 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 Pumping Room
Various time-controlling mice have synchronized themselves with this room and are using the Pressurized Pump Pipes in their study of time control. Upgrade this room to restore maximum pressure to 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 fine-tune your own recipe and increase bonus Empowered SUPER|brie+ contained within the reward crate as well as extending the Anniversary Aura by a greater amount each time you claim one.

Golden Punch Tickets and Tasty Rewards

For your assistance in defending the factory, the King will allow you to keep any cheese crates that you successfully fill!

Match two mice with one hunt! Love is in the air until February 22!

Love is in the Air!

All throughout Gnawnia, hunters and mice alike are cozying up to one another and even Larry has been seen carving a heart into the Great Gnarled Tree.

The outburst of affection has caused some mice to pair off, possibly explaining the near endless population of mice. During this outburst of affection, you may find yourself catching two mice at the same time!

While hunting anywhere in the Kingdom, you can encounter a mouse that has paired off with a Valentine's Event Mouse. Should this occur, you'll capture both mice with a single piece of cheese! Keep an eye on your Hunter's Journal for an especially lovely looking entry when this occurs.

Lovely Loot Opportunities

When capturing a Valentine's Event Mouse that has paired off with another, you'll find a variety of attractive loot items including Valentine Charms, Lucky Valentine Charms, King's Credits, Ultimate Luck Charms, collectibles, and more!

Attractive Treasure Maps

Visit any Cartographer throughout the Kingdom to pick up a Valentine's Matchmaker Scroll Case to search out treasure hidden by the Valentine's event mice!

Completing the map will reveal the location of a Valentine's Matchmaker Treasure Chest containing Points, Gold, Valentine Charms, Lucky Valentine Charms, King's Credits, and Ancient Charms. With some luck you may also find one of eight unique tradable trap skins!

With Valentine's mice encountered anywhere in the Kingdom, these maps are a great opportunity to work with fellow hunters of any rank!

Sweet Gift Boxes and More

The King has put together a few appropriate gifts to show affection to friendly hunters, or a sweet treat for yourself!

  • 15 Valentine Charms
Valentines Charms!
  • 50 Lucky Valentine Charms
