Ingame food for real food charity in HKO

Hello Kitty Online is now running several events, including Hello Kitty's Birthday (Nov. 1st) and the finalization of building New York, but the one event that I thought was particularly interesting was the Food for Friends event.

The concept of trading in virtual effort and cash for real money for a good cause is something really worthwhile and very fitting for Hello Kitty Online, given that Hello Kitty has been the Unicef Goodwill Ambassador before (for real!). I would love to see more of that in other games! See the subtext clipped out below...and yes, Happy Birthday Hello Kitty!

Remembering children who are less fortunate, Hello Kitty Online will host an in-game guild contest called “Food for Friends”, in which the efforts of guilds will be translated into donations to charity. Guilds interested in participating will produce raw materials on their farms and craft them into specific food items. Guilds will submit prepared food items to a Game Master. The guilds with the highest contributions will be declared winners. The winning guilds will receive a permanent page on www.hellokittyonline.com, special guild privileges for open beta, and a small feature on their guild including an interview with the guild representative(s) to be posted on official blog and press releases. Based on the total prepared food donated by all guilds, Sanrio Digital will then make cash donations to UNICEF (www.unicef.org ) and the Asian Youth Orchestra (www.asianyouthorchestra.com ).

Rippleclouds Adventure and her first day in HKO

A diary from my dear guild friend Ripplecloud, I've been too busy playing the game so I reposted her diary as it really just reflects my thoughts exactly!

 

On Oct 9, 2008, sometime in the middle of the night, an avatar that was wiped out months back was revived. As her bright red eyes opened to her new surroundings, a rush of memories poured into her consciousness and ripplecloud knew she was home.

The very first friend to welcome her was none other than her good friend Mimmy. But, Mimmy didn’t seem to know ripplecloud. In fact Mimmy behaved as if this was the very first time she met ripplecloud. Mimmy! Don’t you know me anymore?

 

mimmy the instructor

And where is Sanrio Harbour? Room after room, ripplecloud searched for the exit of the strange house she was in. It was a long time before she finally staggered into the blazing sun of the harbour. But what is this?

 

The harbour looked strange as well. Her good friend the blue hedgehog Harinezumi was nowhere to be found at his favourite sun-tanning spot!

 

harinezumi is not here??!!

ripplecloud was mightily confused. :( It looked and felt like Sanrio Harbour, but everything was mixed up and different from the past! She was feeling lost too, and it felt somewhat like ripplecloud was starting all over again. Except that unlike the last time when she was all alone at Sanrio Harbour, there was tons of people this time round!!

 

omg there are thousand of ants, i mean players here!

Gulp! Perhaps, it wasn’t such a bad idea to start later than everyone else the last time? :\ This crowd looks daunting… 3 people chasing after 1 crab? 4 people whacking 1 starfish?

It’s lucky the creatures only get stunned, otherwise the wildlife of Sanrio Harbour would suffer a massive extinction!

 

ripplecloud felt dizzy at the thought and needed to sit down somewhere. That was when she finally found, to her great relief, the sight of familiar people :D who went “Hi ripplecloud!” :D Thank you so much!

finally some familiar nicks!!
Woohoo!! No more manual captioning of players names!!! XD
(screenie from BunnyWinx cos Bunny left before I screenied :( heehee, too slow…)

Finally a little spot of HKO that seemed friendly and normal :P I sat for a while with Piriotessa and GM-Calealen in my underwear (as GM-Calealen calls it XD) as well as my blog buddies BunnyWinx andNoliai ^_^ and we talked about the game (which I was highly unqualified to talk about since I just got started!!!)

 

But oh dear, the world of HKO is now so big with at least 20,000 people! How am I ever going to find all my guild mates and old friends in this mess?? But ripplecloud really wanted to meet all her friends in the game. So it was time to go off and continue exploring the strange new world of HKO and track down her friends!

 

And guess who I met next in Florapolis!! It was GM-RoAN, who still owed me a round of mini-game from closed beta XD (wahahahaha, elephants have long memories so have I… or at least my blog remembers for me heehee ;P)

 

But GM-RoAN was no longer the same too! :( You see, GM-RoAN was wearing a magical Elvis suit, which had the ability to make its wearer loony. So GM-RoAN was going around talking loudly to himself and thinking that somebody was blackmailing him!

I finally tracked him down on Daniel’s platform (except that Daniel is no longer there, sigh, this platform should be conserved and a Daniel statue put here, I tell you!!! It is a historic site! XD Muahahahahaha). But GM-RoAN seemed to think that I was the blackmailer and that he needed to flee from me :\

  • GM-RoAN: I am going to disappear!
  • ripplecloud: OK, go on. I am waiting to see you disappear…. go on, disappear :)

And then he did. = =!

It was so fast, I couldn’t screencap the yellow flash of light when he zapped down the platform and disappeared. :O

  • GM-RoAN: Haa now you cannot find me!
  • ripplecloud: … … ….
  • ripplecloud: I will find you!! When you least expect it!! … Hahahaha muahahahaha *false bravado XP*

But first, I still gotta find all my other guild mates, closed beta friends and blog buddies. Where areyou my friends?

HKO Build New York City Quest

So I've been a little quieter than usual, that's because I was busy playing HKO! I haven't been putting up too many diary entries myself, but ripple did a great job already! It's a great deal of fun (and entertainment).

They also announced today something different for an MMO, I wonder how this is going to work out? The themes inside HKO already point to various cities, with London, Paris etc. all already in the map, and now players in the founders beta are asked to contribute towards building New York!? The blog post says the following:

Hello Kitty Online is proud to announce its largest in-game event yet: the building of New York City! Starting October 17, 2008, players of the Hello Kitty Online Founders’ Beta will be able to participate in a series of quests to collect and organize materials for the building of New York, a new area that will appear in the next phase of the game.

Players who successfully complete all the required quests will have the names of their character permanently recorded on virtual commemorative plaques located throughout the new area (the plaques will appear in future versions of the game’s North American edition). It’s a unique opportunity to leave your mark on Hello Kitty Online!

I just logged in, went through a tutorial, most of which I already knew and then, when I landed in the game I checked out who was online and saw that screenshot! The starting server was packed! Anyway, I will be posting some stories soon!

For some reason I thought this picture was already shared by someone else here, I found this a while ago and posted it in my Hello Kitty blog before but I didn't see it here, so here I share for those of you who have not yet seen this, Warhammer Hello Kitty. It's funny and creative, although I never did get to learn who the original artist is of this picture.
