There have been two big updates since I last posted that have improved the casual friendliness quotient, given the hardcore more to strive for, as well as brought the winter holidays to the volcanoe.
- A big change is there is now an option to resurrect the dead Meegos for free but with a 50% stat reduction. You still can't set the game down for more than a few of days without penalty, but this is a friendlier option for dealing with a Meego wipe out than the binary choice before of either starting your gene pool over with brand new Meegos or paying 8 skulls a resurrect (that option is still there, but you get the Meego back with full stats).
- Leaderboards are now more comprehensive, tracking all four quantitative aspects to the game (total mojo, average villager strength, intelligence, and charisma). Meego herd management is now going to be even more complicated if you're chasing the leader boards (/raises hand)
- Game name has been changed from Meego Village to The Meego (currently, The Meego: Holiday Edition) to emphasize the game's focus
- Holiday theming and music with more stuff being rolled out server side (at least that's the implication of dev statements on their forums) over the next few days.
