Story Summary

Here's a complete summary of everything that happened during the event, story wise.
Made with assistance from kaljinyu.

The Bugs

Here are the odd purple bugs which infected the new Games Machine.

Starting on March 8th, these bugs would pop at random on any Games Room page. For the first day they were unable to be clicked on, but after that each bug could be clicked upon to receive a random item. The number of bugs visible on one page at a time would increase slightly each day. On March 25th, the bugs officially stopped appearing.

On March 14th, one of the bugs was a Better Than You challenger for the game Itchy Invasion.

On March 15th, the Daily Dare banner was updated to show the takeover of the bugs. It was updated again on March 22nd as the bugs were driven away.

A small NC event, called Lulu's Bug Hunt, allowed users to catch the insects and receive a NC bug-themed item in return. It lasted from March 22nd to March 26th.

On March 12th, Roo Island had started to be invaded by the purple petpetpets. As a running gag, there was a public service announcement sponsored by an ever-changing gummy corporation. A counter at the top of the page indicated how many there were at any given time as the number of bugs visually increased, spreading over the island. The population would increase about 10x each update. All the links on the island during this period remained working, however. The population began to decrease starting March 22nd. The bugs finally left on March 26th, and Roo Island got a much-needed redraw.

The Case of the Missing King

When King Roo went missing on March 9th, Lulu offered to go track him down. Users could buy an Adventure Book from the NC mall, and by doing this were able to cast a vote as to what Lulu's next step should be. Whatever was chosen affected the NC items given out. Along the way, Lulu kept a journal to record her travels. Shown below are each journal page and the options available.

The choice that was selected is outlined in dark red.

Games Room Dialogue

Dialogue that appeared automatically for everyone on any Games Room page appeared in gold, while dialogue that had a chance of appearing randomly on any Games Room page appeared in silver.

There are currently no screencaps of the King Roo dialogue that appeared when the new Games Machine first opened. The following is a recreation of said dialogue. If you have the original screencapped, please Neomail me (Dragonair23).
