UPDATED: HTML5 is coming! (New Dates)

EDIT: Some important news! Since Chrome is about to have an update which could have some adverse effects on our HTML5 rollout we have decided to start with Firefox and Edge users first. On September 12th we will activate HTML5 for Firefox and Edge users and you can use the in-game switch button. Chrome users will have to wait a short while and we are currently working with the bright sparks at Google to deal with the possible issues with Chrome. Chrome should go live in the days or weeks following September 12th and we’ll bring you more definitive news about a date when we have it. We have also updated the above infographic to reflect this change. Thanks everyone!


Hello you patient farmers, the time has come! We will finally begin the switch over to HTML5, hooray! What does it mean for you? Well…

Not all that much in fact. There are some small visual differences but the game plays in the same way as it did previously. All the events you know and love are there, your player account and farm will not change and you can simply carry on playing as you always did!

But why the switch you ask? The game previously used an older technology and we will now make an upgrade! This new version is  up-to-date and modern so that we can keep the game going for years to come!

If you’re still using Internet Explorer you should upgrade to a more modern browser, instructions on how to do that can be found in our tutorial video which explains how to upgrade the three most popular browsers and ensure the smoothest experience with the new version of the game.

For a time you will be able to swap back between the two versions with a button, which will replace the current sundial above the in-game clock.

Note: Example image, final appearance may change

 

The last thing to mention is when! The switch will take place on the 10th of September for Chrome users first. If the switching works as intended and everything looks good for Chrome users we will then add HTML5 for Firefox and Microsoft Edge users after that. For Internet Explorer users we recommend upgrading your browser to one of Firefox, Chrome or Edge (for Windows 10 users only) before the day so that you’re all ready when the switch is flicked.

  1. ¡Hola, pacientes agricultores, ha llegado el momento! Finalmente comenzaremos el cambio a HTML5, ¡hurra! ¿Qué significa para ti? Bien…

    No mucho de hecho. Hay algunas pequeñas diferencias visuales, pero el juego se juega de la misma manera que antes. Todos los eventos que conoces y amas están ahí, tu cuenta de jugador y granja no cambiarán y simplemente puedes continuar jugando como siempre lo hiciste.

    Pero ¿por qué el interruptor que preguntas? ¡El juego usó previamente una tecnología más antigua y ahora haremos una actualización! ¡Esta nueva versión está actualizada y es moderna para que podamos mantener el juego en los años venideros!

    Si todavía está usando Internet Explorer, debe actualizar a un navegador más moderno, las instrucciones sobre cómo hacerlo se pueden encontrar en nuestro video tutorial que explica cómo actualizar los tres navegadores más populares y garantizar la experiencia más fluida con la nueva versión de el juego.

    Durante un tiempo, podrá cambiar entre las dos versiones con un botón, que reemplazará al reloj de sol actual sobre el reloj del juego.

    Nota: Imagen de ejemplo, la apariencia final puede cambiar

    Lo último que mencionar es cuando! El cambio se llevará a cabo el 10 de septiembre para los usuarios de Chrome primero. Si el cambio funciona según lo previsto y todo parece estar bien para los usuarios de Chrome, agregaremos HTML5 para los usuarios de Firefox y Microsoft Edge después de eso. Para los usuarios de Internet Explorer, recomendamos actualizar su navegador a uno de Firefox, Chrome o Edge (solo para usuarios de Windows 10) antes del día para que esté listo cuando se active el interruptor.

  2. Will penguin still work on tablets?

    1. Hey there Mervyn, the HTML5 version is not specifically developed for mobile devices so it’s very possible it will not work. I assume you meant ‘Puffin’, the mobile Flash browser? It’s best to assume the game will work best on the browsers we have mentioned as these are the only ones we will specifically test for.

  3. Non riesco più ad aprire il gioco. Mi appare una finestra di benvenuto, che mi dice di cliccare su “Gioca” e poi su “Consenti” nella finestra popup che si apre. Ma quando clicco su Gioca, mi appare una freccia in alto a sinistra che non indica, però, nulla.
    Che fare?
