2017 Resolutions

Hey Jammers, tomorrow is the first day of the new year. You know, sometimes I think people get a little too crazy about new year's celebrations. For me it's just an extra number to add when I write the date on school assignments. XD

Some people are really, really happy that 2016 is close to over. A lot of *cough* things happened this year that were very jarring. Still, I don't think just having an extra year number will change much of what people are eager to leave behind. Real concrete change needs to happen on a personal level and on a widespread level if you really want to make lasting positive change in your world.

And big change starts with small change. Widespread change starts with individual change.

So, corny or not, here are just a few very general resolutions for 2017, for me and for you:

1. Stop staring at your phone or computer and go outside for once. Nothing's gonna change if you keep to the same distracted habits and give social media too much power over your life.

2. Be kind to the Earth because the environment affects all corners of your life, no matter how many plastic bubbles you put yourself in. Think about how the word "human" is derived from the word humus, which means dirt. You are a part of this world and it is your job to respect it and protect it for all our sakes.

3. Be as understanding as you can of different experiences and points of view. It's okay to have friends who are different from you.

Because today is the last day of the Jamaaliday calendar, here it is in full with all of this month's prizes:

I hope you all have a wonderful new year. ^-^

The Mysterious Alpha?

Hey Jammers! Some wacky and mysterious news today for y'all. It's a suspenseful new message that has just washed up on the beaches of Crystal Sands:

Who the heck is it???!?!?!

Well, the shadow in the portrait looks oddly humanoid, though it's unlikely that it actually will be a human character. 

Hmm... could this character be... the goat alpha? I wonder if you've noticed that every other animal has a corresponding alpha besides the goat. Perhaps this is the goat alpha's belated introduction?

The most likely writer of the messages is the band of goats that went traveling, as I've discussed before. In a previous message, they said that this new prisoner looked a little like them. That's why I'm drawing the goat alpha conclusion.

However, something about that shadow reminds me of Harper, the seal alpha:

I think both options are fairly likely.

In other news, I think the update is today! In around 10 minutes, to be exact. I wonder why AJHQ hasn't uploaded an update preview to their Instagram account yet. Hmm. 

Maybe we'll find out why...

EDIT: No update today, according to AJHQ's official Instagram. 

It makes some sense because I think they'll want to wait until January 1st to start the New Year Party.

New Jamaaliday Things

Happy Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, or any other holiday you are celebrating these few weeks! I hope that whatever you celebrate you will have fun with. :)

Because it's been a few weeks since I last showed you the full gift calendar (thus far), I thought I'd update it today:

(Click it to read the item labels closely.)

In the same theme of new updates, here are the latest installments in the bottle message saga:

Happy Jamaalidays!

The Story Thus Far

Hey Jammers! Remember the bottled messages? You know, the ones that were washing up on the shores of Crystal Sands? Remember those? Yeah. 

Were you aware that they're still coming regularly?

I certainly wasn't until this morning. 

Maybe you weren't either.

So, I thought it would be a good idea to show you all what you've missed in the story. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, or those who forgot completely about the earlier messages, I'm going to put them all right here. 

Each message comes with an item, so the message will be right next to its corresponding item.

Here, my friends, is the complete saga as of today, December 21st:



What we know so far:

The prisoners are most likely the traveling goats. Evidence: "baad!" and the fact that in the Jamaa Journal, a message was included from the goats that said they were going to take a boat.

They are trapped in the Phantom Fortress. Evidence: In one of the most recent 2D adventures, a sign written by Peck described the Phantom Fortress as a moving prison like the one in the messages.

Peck is either trapped or in a close conflict with the phantoms.

We also now know the layout of the fortress, as from the Escape Plans.

I'll try to keep AJ Stream updated on the remainder of the messages. Until then, happy Winter solstice!
