I finally uploaded the Furoma Rift section. You can find it here.
Some of you may be wondering what is up with my guide. Well, to be blunt, I have not been a fan of the direction that the Hitgrab team took Mousehunt in 2016. I’ll post more in-depth thoughts later, but I was willing to look past that if my guide was made one of the official guides of the game. I requested the Devs look at this over a year ago when they only had one guide listed as an “official” guide (Spheniscine’s Guide). And don’t get me started on this guide, it hasn’t been updated in 2 years. This was why I wrote the Devs and asked them to consider my guide instead.
However, as usual, I never heard anything despite repeated attempts to contact them. Michele did “friend” me on Facebook, but repeated efforts to reach out to Dave have failed.
They HAD to, however, look at their situation and realize that Spheniscine’s guide was not sufficient, so they added “MozKa’s Definitive MouseHunt Guide.” I have nothing but good things to say about MozKa’s guide. It’s well organized and he’s a good hunter. But, the lack of response to me was disheartening. I’ve put a lot of effort over the years into this guide.
Then, what felt like a slap in the face, not long ago the Devs added a “FAQ” to the Lore Tab. My guide is called “Mousehunt FAQ.” Perhaps this was a coincidence. I’m sure it was, but it struck a nerve with me. So, they list TWO guides as the official MH guides and one of those is DEFUNCT! Now you understand my frustration with the game, with the devs, with just about everything in 2016. Furoma Rift was a bad release. Fort Rox was an unmitigated disaster and, though I will add it to my guide eventually, I am holding out, hoping they modify it because it just sucks right now. Sucks hard.
And we all know the disaster that was the Great Winter Hunt. And now they are pushing players to submit ideas. They have never openly suggested to players to submit ideas for future content. I think the devs are running out of ideas.
I love this game. I have been playing for almost 8 years. I have not known my daughter without knowing Mousehunt, and she’s in second grade. This game is a part of my life. I have devoted time and money to it. But I have serious concerns about the direction of the game, and the longevity of it. I will offer more indept analysis of my ideas to help improve the game, here and on the forums. My hope is the devs read them and take them seriously. This game needs help. It needs new blood. It needs to be jump-started.
To everyone who follows my guide, thank you. Please pass this along to your other MH friends. I want to get more active here and post more updates. I’m just very frustrated with the state of the game and the direction.
