Hamburg, Germany (June 18, 2019) - The MMORPG Shakes & Fidget is celebrating its 10th birthday this week! RPG fans have been roaming the crazy fantasy world since 2009, cleaning up dark dungeons, forming guilds or building their own fortress. Developer Playa Games celebrates the anniversary of the cross-platform MMO with many special activities. In addition, the Remastered version will be available to all players on all platforms starting this week.

Shakes & Fidget Remastered

Two years ago, Playa Games started the ambitious project to completely modernize Shakes & Fidget. Not an easy task, since the online RPG is now available for many different platforms, including browsers, Steam, iOS, and Android. Now, for the game’s 10th birthday, the conversion to the Remastered version is complete. Starting this week, players on all platforms will be able to enjoy the overhauled game. This includes high-resolution graphics, an intuitive and modern interface design, new hand-drawn graphics and the switch from Flash to WebGL and Unity Engine.

Birthday? Gifts!

In addition to the completed changeover, Shakes & Fidget is celebrating its anniversary with no less than 10 very special innovations and promotions: The new "Continuous Loop of Idols" dungeon lets players measure their skills against famous YouTubers. As an additional service, the Blacksmith now offers the reworking of epic items, giving them a whole new look. Hidden deep inside the mine, a very special item awaits adventurers: when found, the Holy Grail will display items still to be discovered for the Album of Meticulousness. To gain possession of the Grail, players must have reached level 85 and have at least 1,000 items in their album.

Players can also earn 10 additional crazy achievements, grab 10 epic birthday items, compete against 100 newly painted enemies, or browse through Fidgets' redesigned Magic Shop. Last but not least, from 21 to 23 June all events will take place simultaneously! This means more experience, more epic items for players level 50 and above, more gold and 20 percent more Mushrooms from the Mushroom Dealer.
