Hi players, it has been a while since our last update, we have been working on some exciting future features that still aren’t quite ready for the public. In the meantime, we do have some updates to the game to share. They include changes to hotspots by adding a animation to ones that have had recent tracing done in them as well as hide ones that have been inactive for too long and better gesture support for laptop trackpads. View all our changes here. Thanks for playing!
(04/09/2019) Hi players, in the most recent up we have finally added achievements to the game. You can view the ones that are available by clicking on your username in the upper righ portion of the screen. Currently there is only a very small batch but are working on adding more in the future. In addition, the current achievements will only look at neurons that are already closed, so it might take some time between when you finish tracing and when you actually have the achievement unlocked. View more information here. Thank you for your contributions!
(03/19/2019) Hi players, in the latest update we added improvements to virtual finger to make it create smoother curves as well as making tooltips over various buttons and ui components more consistent and visible on mobile devices. The full changelog is here.
(03/05/2019) Hi players, the latest update has mostly been focused on addressing a number of issues on mobile devices as well as fix an annoying issue where you had to completely refresh the browser if there was an interruption in communicating with our game servers. The full list of changes can be found here.
Thank you for all your contributions!
(01/29/2019) Hi players, in our latest updated we have introduced quests in the game. These are tasks that you can complete during your tracing session. At the moment they are primarily used to introduce new users to the game during the tutorials but hope to make it more engaging for more experienced users in future updates. We also have a handful of bug fixes for some long standing issues. View all the updates here in the changelog.
(01/07/2019) Hi players, our first release of the new year has some improvements to the Connect-the-Dots tools to simplify it a bit more. We’ve remove the notion of having to click on a node again to ‘commit’ a trace. In addition, ending a segment on an existing node will no longer have that existing node be selected. We hope this changes make using Connect-the-Dots a bit smoother by reducing the number of clicks needed to select/unselect nodes. There were also a few bug fixes, all the changes in this update are in the changelog here. Happy tracing!
(12/24/2018) Hi players, the latest update was mostly modifications to the code to prepare for big new feature updates in the future. However, there were a few bugs fixes and ui tweaks you can view in our changelog. Thank you for playing!
(12/11/2018) Hi players, we have released recently released an update to the game. The primary changes involved overhauling the tutorial to more gradually introduce some of the tools and have better positioned tooltips and making comments have a solid fill so they are easier to see and click on. See the full changelog here.
Connect-the-Dots got a user experience makeover! In preparation for releasing Mozak on touch devices (coming shortly), we needed an alternative to the right-click button, and make the interaction more streamlined. There is no longer a notion of “finalizing the trace”. You simply add an new edge from the current node by clicking on a new point.
We also hope that the new user interface will encourage people to grow the traces from existing traces rather than starting a new branch out of nowhere. You can still start a brand new branch by manually unselecting a current node highlighted orange, and then clicking on a new location. As an added bonus, now that right click is not used, you can rotate while in CtD mode!
See the changelog here for all the updates. If you have suggestions to change how new interface work please let us know!
