Prizes sent!

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

prize-letter

Chris has developed a new way to notify you whenever you receive SoBucks or items from winning a contest or participating in an activity. Yep, it’s through a pigeon mail from your sponsor! :D

If you won any contests lately, or if you’ve recently shared a picture of a couple in our Facebook page, I’m sure you got your prizes by now. We still have to send the prizes for the Easter Egg Hunt winners, but the previous winners of our Image Contests and Spring 2013 Fashion Contest have been given prizes already.

Thoughts, questions, reactions, or inquiries about this new feature? Share them below! :)

Helper Apps for SocioTown

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Want to check your pigeon mail or your stats using your smartphone? Chris has thought of making some helper apps for SocioTown so you can keep track of your Socian on-the-go!

Aside from the awesome SocioTown spin-off game for the iPhone and Android, Chris wants to have another related app to SocioTown. Head over to the discussion area or click here to read the thread.

If you’re unable to post in the forums, you can also share your ideas in the comment section below, and I’d gladly share them to Chris. We’d love to hear what you think about this! :)

New: Biker Outfits!

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

biker-new

Remember that little teaser we made for a new set of clothes? Well, here it is! The new get-up to be featured this chilly season: Biker Outfits!

We have a sandy blonde-like hair with a blue bandanna for the ladies, and a cool hairstyle in a star-filled blue bandanna for the guys. These outfits also have tough-looking jackets and pants with intricate designs, zippers and belts. These also have long boots to keep your toes comfy as you drive in your bikes, and jewelry that goes well with the overall look. Pretty cool, huh.

These dashing biker wear are perfect for your mopeds. Roam around town riding your scooters in these cool outfits. More info will be released soon, and they will be available in Trendiiz and Gee-Cue in the future, so watch out for them. ;)

New outfits? Hmm…

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

biker-teaser

Remember when we announced weeks ago that there might be new outfits soon? Well, here they are, but still in their teaser form. What do you think they are? ;)

Tell us what you think about these new outfits in the comment section below. We’ll be showing it in a few days, so regularly check the blog and Facebook page to know more about it. :)

New: Robot Outfits!

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

robot-outfits

Want to go mechanical and metal? Watch out for these new Robot Outfits that will hit the stores soon!

With robotic claw hands, reaching out for a lemonade would be easy, and the cold hard metal will look like a cool armor. Amaze your friends with your knobs, buttons, levers and antennas. Imagine doing a robot dance in these! Gather at the park with your friends and dance around in these outfits. Just don’t overheat, okay? ;)

Edit: Hello. Some of you may have commented about the “junk” look of the outfit. I think that this is the point of the outfit, like it’s a make-believe robot. So I made a description that plays with that idea above. Sorry if it seemed that the description is not apt to the look. I also think that this looks like a fun outfit, since it can remind us of the days when we pretend to be “robots” by making our robot costume with cardboard and the likes. I do hope you enjoy these outfits though. Have fun with your imagination! :)

Fall Fashion 2012: second set of outfits! (Update: These are available now!)

Monday, September 17th, 2012

fall-fashion-set-2

To keep you snugly warm this fall, SocioTown offers you another set of fall outfits! If you enjoyed our first set, then you’ll be happy to know that a second one is coming soon.

This second set is all about layers! For the girls we have a white inner top, a plaid long sleeve shirt over it, covered by a snug jacket in a lovely shade of brown. The pants are a little snug too, with the ends folded a bit. The footwear is a nice pair of boat shoes that’s also good to wear during other seasons. With auburn hair and a cute little heart necklace, this outfit is comfy, casual and trendy.

For the boys, we have an inner turtleneck in maroon, layered by a grayish cardigan, topped by a gray checkered long jacket. With layers like that, who wouldn’t feel warm? The hat adds more warmth too, and also has the same checkered pattern which matches the jacket. The blue pants, on the other hand, matches the darker blue boots. Stroll around town and let your long jacket wave in the chilly wind.

These will hit the stores soon. We will give more info about these outfits later, so check the blog or FB page regularly to know more updates. :)

Edit: These are for PR subscribers and will available on Saturday, September 29, 2012. Hurry and buy while stocks last! :)

New season, new outfits! (with update below)

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

fall-fashion

Yes, you read that right! SocioTown will be having a new set of clothes for Fall!

For the girls, we have this cute dress with a dark-colored ribbon belt matched with a comfy-looking blazer. The accessory is a tiny heart necklace that matches the blazer’s color. The hair is a bit wavy at its tips, which gives off a cute and girly feel to the overall look. To complete the set, the shoes’ color matches the blazer and necklace, and it has yellow ribbons that compliment the dress.

For the guys, we have a brown blazer matched with a scarf. It gives off this formal and cool look, and the scarf is such a good accessory for this outfit. The hair is sort of sandy-blonde that looks good with the blazer. To complete the set, the gray pants are paired with brown boots, which matches the blazer too.

These will be released some time next week, so watch out for them at Trendiiz and Gee-Cue. More information about these outfits will be released soon. Meet the new chilly season with style! :D

Update: These new Fall Outfits will be available on Saturday, September 15 at Trendiiz and Gee-Cue. They will be for Socians with PR status and the price range for each item is around 60-150+ SoBucks. Happy Shopping!

virtualgame2

 The Virtual Games has hit town! Currently there are two mini games that you can play - Coin Catchers and Dance Dance Socian (the latter is shown at the top). Although you will have to pay an initial fee to play these mini games, you do have the opportunity to earn SoBucks off of them also.

You can spot Socians currently playing a Virtual Game when they have ’skeletal’ hands and googles on. Be sure to join in on the fun!
