✦ Happy January Sushi Rolls! ✦

We hope you have jumped into 2022 with a fresh mind! We have a lot of exciting things coming for this year and are still working out the details, but we hope you enjoy your time in Culario with us this year! Thank you always for your continued support. On a personal standpoint, 2022 marks the start of my species ownership with a fresh start now that I have 9 months under my belt. I hope that you have enjoyed the past months and that we can continue to grow our family here. It means so much to me and our mod team that you enjoy Sushi Dogs so much!



✦ TOS Updates ✦

 

With the new year and new ownership, we have reviewed our Terms of Service to be more in line with the current status of the species. Please be sure to review carefully as participating on the site and purchasing Sushi Dog-related goods, means that you consent to our TOS! We will also be moving our TOS to the "Help" tab in the near future to make sure it is accessible to all users.

Read Updated TOS





✦ World Lore is now Live! ✦

While our world lore has been in progress for a very long time, we have decided to go ahead and make things live for you to view and we begin fleshing out more lore-related content for our users. 99% of this content was written by Chital so I would like to give credit to her since she graciously let me keep it when I became the owner. I think it has a lot of goodies for you to dive into as we begin expanding Culario for you to explore. We would also like to note that a few NPC names have changed, and are updated accordingly on their database entries! Nox is now Nocte and Dulces is now Taffy.

Images of locations are still coming soon (and the main reason it has not been live yet!) but we decided to go ahead and give you something for the new year! 

General species lore is still a work in progress but we hope to have an update for you soon. I will be asking in our Discord server what users would specifically like for me to tackle in the lore to make sure that it's everything everyone could want!

Check Out The Culario Map

 

 

✦ Mod January Adopts Tease ✦

 

As a small final thought, I wanted to tease that the January mod batch will be Valentine's themed! Go ahead and get ready for some simply lovely little sooshes to use this February season!

 

 

✦ January Adventure ✦

Our next adventure is upon us, this time it's time to investigate some mysterious happenings with some snowmen! Are you ready to earn your next virtue? Remember to earn a virtue, you MUST have completed your magic training with your selected soosh!

(Be sure to expand the prompt once you click the link for details!)

✦ Website Updates ✦

In the past few weeks, our developer has been hard at work getting things set up on his end to make our bigger updates a reality! The transition process has unfortunately not been as smooth as we hoped, but we have made great strides in the past few days. We hope to have more to share soon. This was the main reason of the newsletter being delayed this month, as we hoped to have some new things ready for the secret soosh event that would make things run a lot smoother. 

Stay tuned for more in regards to the site!

Wha--what's that?! Oh, October started. And man is Halloween coming fast at us! Hang onto your bandanas and let's dive into what's going on this month in Sushi Dogs! Oh hey, and check out our adorable new banner art by cherub !!

 

 

✦ Vampsoosh NPC Design Contest ✦

It's once again time for our long-awaited NPC design contest, for our NPC Purnima!
If you're a newer member and don't know what exactly this means, this is your chance to win your very own mythical Vampsoosh and leave your mark on the group forever! Members will design a vampire mythical to become our official NPC and it will be put to a vote on our moderation team!

Learn More Here

 

 

✦ Trick or Treat Mystery Sale ✦

Claims open on October 01 @ 1:00pm EST



[ Click here to see the preview! ] 

How does this event work?

For this event, there are five themes with two designs per theme (10 total); one a trick and one a treat! Each theme will be claimed by two different users and we will raffle off in our discord server who gets what design? Care to test your luck? There may even be a mythical or two in the mix....

Our artists for this event are:
Alexdream12 ariamisu care Felyneis Flufflebear linborghini mr-tiaa ponkochi SociallyFrightened Starkindler
( Designs are not in this order, don't let it trick you! :D )

Each user can claim ONCE for this event, for at least the first 24 hours. This is to ensure everyone gets a chance. After a certain amount of time, if a theme remains completely unclaimed, both or one of the designs will go up for auction.

We hope everyone enjoys the sale and you get a spoopy surprise!

✦ Vampsoosh Auctions ✦

In addition to our mystery sale, we will be having weekly Vampsoosh auctions by a few more members of our guest artist team! Ready for some spooky, scary additions to your soosh family? Please look forward to these each Saturday of this month, ending on Halloween! 

Our artists for these sales are:

✦ Website Updates ✦

As you've probably noticed (and missed the news) the site has gotten a color refresh and some font updates! This is the first step towards redesigning the site overall, and hope to have more updates for you in the future! Because we are redesigning after our official launch, it may be more slow and steady as we have a lot more pressing matters, but we hope you enjoy them as they come!

I have also taken some time to reorganize the layout of the navigation bar, and hope that everyone is able to find things a little bit easier than before (namely traits, prompts, and other world elements!) If you have any suggestions for a new page, do let us know!

We have also added badges to your soosh's profile to indicate if they are up for trade, open to gift art, and open to gift writing. You can update these settings under each individual soosh you own. We also added a small visual indicator that there is new news! Yay tiny design things!

And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are!

September Newsletter

Happy September Sushi Rolls!

Fall is in full swing now as we say goodbye to summer. Check out what's going on in Sushi Dogs this month, and a teaser for what's to come in October. September is not an event month but that doesn't mean we don't have some fun happenings heading your way!

 

✦ September Prompts ✦

Sept 2 - Sept 30

Art by Staryon

We have a month of fun prompts planned for you, mostly lasting for a week! 

To start you off, we have a "Goodbye Summer" prompt that lasts all month! Users will draw your soosh (or Cookie if you do not own a soosh) celebrating the last bit of the summer season! Are they taking one final beach trip to make sandcastles, or are they having a late summer barbecue? Maybe they are putting up their pool and excitedly preparing for Autumn? There is no wrong way to celebrate the end of summer!

 [ Check out the Prompt Now! ]

Be sure to keep an eye out for announcements on the new prompts throughout the month in our Discord Server!

 

✦ Tonic Art ✦

Drink up, they are available now!

Art by Staryon

Long-awaited, but our tonics have now been added into the overhauled assets! These should be the last of the older art style to be removed (If you see anything else let us know!) 

Star worked hard on making sure each one was distinct (and matched the description written for them lol). We hope you like them! All tonics are available in Pommelraie's shop, with the new art to follow soon!!

 

✦ October Teaser ✦

Starts October 1st!

We have a lot in store for October for you! Halloween is our favorite time of the year after all! (Don't tell the other holidays though!) We hope this small taste gets you excited for what's to come (:

-

Treat or Treat Mystery Sale

10 Guest Artists are pairing up and bringing back our mystery Halloween sale! Members who play will pick between 5 different themes and get surprised between one of two mystery designs! Will you get tricked or maybe get a treat?

-

Vampsoosh NPC Design Contest

Word on the street is that Purnima has been seen wandering the outskirts of the desert that she normally calls home. No one has seen more than a vague outline of a soosh on the horizon but surely it must be her? No one else would venture that far past town. Maybe it's time she finally stops by for a visit...but what does she look like again?

Our long awaiting NPC design contest for our Vampsoosh queen, Purnima, is almost here! Users will design what they think she should look like, and one design will become official, and they will be granted her blessing to allow for a vampsoosh of their very own....We hope you are excited and can't wait to see what you come up with!

-

Vampsoosh Auctions
Throughout the month of October, we will have weekly sales (excluding one week for the mystery sale) of brand new Vampsoosh designs! These will be the perfect additions to your family for the upcoming spooky season.

 

✦ Upcoming Shops ✦

Meet Belle & Rowan!

Art & Designs by Staryon

Word on the street is that two new sooshes just showed up to Culario and are planning on opening up some shops! They heard that apparently there's a shortage of haute potions, so they will do their part to help alleviate it. But they don't plan on doing it in the way that you expect! They will make sure you get your eat fill and look fashionable while doing it! They're so excited to meet you and hope to open their doors soon!

 

And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are! 
As always, feel free to leave a comment or send us a message if you have any questions!

August Newsletter

Posted 1 August 2021, 01:26:19 EDT :: Last edited 1 August 2021, 18:40:32 EDT by fawncore

Art by Staryon & Rannarbananar

Did you know that Sushi Dogs were originally founded on August 9th, 2013?
That makes us 8 years old this year!

We are immensely grateful for the community that we have, especially with so much change over the years! This year we want to celebrate our community with a variety of events all throughout the month of August!

 

New Faces

Out with the old, in with the new!

Art by lunar-ribbon

Throughout the years of Sushi Dogs, a lot has changed within the species since its original creation, but there from the early beginning was our mascot, Onigiri! While he has become a bit of a meme in the discord server and some sort of leader of chaos, he has always been a staple in the community.

As the concept of Sushi Dogs moved away from its original intention, Sushi, many years ago, we thought it would be best to introduce a new character who is more inclusive to what the species has become. So, with that now said, we introduce you to Cookie!

Art by fawncore

Cookie will be your new guide around Culario and the new face of the website. They are always willing to lend a helping hand to someone who needs some guidance and prides themselves on being friends with pretty much everyone in Culario somehow.

Cookie is unique in that they are very flexible with how they appear around Culario! They tend to adapt to different environments, cultures, and even preferences of who they are around! Their cheeks, bandana, and base color will always be the same, but feel free to get creative with how Cookie would appear for you! Are they a sugar cookie with tons of rainbow sprinkles, a little more crispy with floral patterns, or maybe just smothered in chocolate? Cookie's toppings are totally up to you, and we hope that any of you who don't have a soosh of their own yet can design them to fit your personal preference to be used in prompts and other activities!

---

And that's not all! Something planned for a while was to give our discord community a mascot of their own! Meet Zero, the robot Sushi Dog! Like Cookie, his appearance can change depending on his circumstances, but this time it's his own emotions! You will most often see him in "Discord" blue/purple!

Art by Staryon

While we welcome these new faces to our NPC team, we will say a small farewell to Onigiri, but not forever! He will just be traveling around the world and come back to Culario every so often,

 

Special Prompts

Open to All Members | Aug 01 - Aug 31

With Onigiri heading out, he leaves you with a prompt to welcome our new NPCs!
Completing this special prompt during the month will result in a special anniversary gift bag!

Check out the Prompt Now!

Also, a quick reminder that our most recent Adventure prompt is coming to a close on August 15th! Will you help Ryder solve the dust bunny problem, and perhaps gain a new virtue trait? These prompts are not common so if you want to work towards that mythical status, be sure to jump on it before it's too late!

Complete Your Adventure!

 

Anniversary Guest Artist Sales

Open to All Members | Aug 02 - Aug 27

We have an exciting month ahead of you if you're into our guest artist sales! Every Monday and Friday of this month there will be a new design up for sale! Here is a small sneak peek of what to expect in the coming month, are there any that have already caught your eye? 

Our artists for this event are:
care fawncore Kyu @miizue PrinceDipper pudipon Rannarbananar & Rocco !

Our first design goes up Monday, August 02! We hope to see you there!

 

FTO Raffle

Open to FTO's | Aug 01 - Aug 31

Art by Staryon

Looking to nab a soosh of your own? How about an extra special one at that?  Staryon kindly designed this to be used for an FTO (First-Time Owner) raffle event in celebration of our anniversary! If you love this design and want to try and win them, all you have to do is comment below with the following form if you are an FTO! 

Pro Tip: You can tell if you are an FTO by the green label on your profile!

  • SushiDogs Username:
    DeviantArt Username: (If you have one!)
    Discord Username: (If you have one!)
    What would you name this soosh if you won?

 

Free MYO Event

Open to All Members | Ends Aug 31st

And now perhaps on to the most exciting portion of our news!
We will be hosting an event that allows any member to make one all standard Sushi Dog for free!

Yes, you read that right! From now until Aug 31 @ 11:59 pm you can submit a Sushi Dog design of your very own and if everything looks correct, they will be approved and uploaded! There are a few rules for this event though:


1. Any sooshes created for this event will be LOCKED to your account! This means you can never sell, trade, surrender or gift them.
2. If you wish to no longer have them, the design must be RETIRED as a Sushi Dog.
3. All Sushi Dogs submitted must be standard, regardless of if you have items or not. If you wish to add gourmet traits or bells, you must do so at a later time by updating the design.
4.  By submitting a design via this event, you are agreeing and consenting that you understand the above rules, and will not try to circumvent our rules.

And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are! 
As always, feel free to leave a comment or send us a message if you have any questions!

Start those Magic Trials!

 

Future Updates

This month is a bit of a slow month, as we are currently operating on an 'every other month' schedule for large events. We will be using these lull months to prep for the large things that will be coming soon, but also to work on longer-term things we want to implement! Please note that all of these are still in the works, and subject to change without notice!

Current Planned Events
  • August: 8th Anniversary Event
  • October: Vampsoosh NPC Design Contest
  • December: Secret Soosh & Advent
  • February 2022: Dragonsoosh NPC Design Contest
  • April: TBD!
Planned Future Updates
  • New Item Art by Staryon!
  • New Trait Upgrade Items
  • New Items in General
  • Achievement System
  • Soosh of the Month System
  • Seasonal Exclusive Currency, Rewards, Traits, Mystery Bags, etc!

We still have a lot to work on, but hope that this gets you excited. We are always open to suggestions if you have anything you would like to maybe become a reality in the group one day!

June Newsletter

Happy June sushi rolls! Are you ready for summer already?! In what feels like a blink of the eye, it’s time for some fun in the sun! If you’ve been around for a while you probably already know what that means! But let’s dive right in to some new things happening around the group!
 

(Click to Enlarge)
 

Sooshapon Restock

The sooshapon machine has been restocked! We will now be setting the stock to be 5 carat-based slots and 10 koinpeito-based slots since they were wiped clean last month! 
 
Need to stock up on some koinpeito? 
 
 

Summer DTE

Yup you heard that right! It’s time for our (almost) annual Summer DTA/E! Unfortunately due to the state of the world last year we were unable to host the event. We hope you love the designs and theme as much as us!
 
This year though, we have decided to take on the DTE (Draw to Enter) format rather than the traditional DTA (Draw to Adopt) format of this event! What does this mean for you though? Basically, everyone who enters has a fair chance to win! We will not be judging on the quality of art, characterization of the character’s personality, epic sagas of stories, etc. Rather everyone who enters will receive one ticket into the raffle! All you have to do is draw a full body that is at least flat colored and you’re set! 
 
We hope the change in format encourages more people to participate in this event! The DTE starts June 4th and will run until July 2nd! We also hope to have final results and prizes out within 24 hours of the event concluding! 
 
 

Guest Artist Sales

Due to the DTE, there will be no guest artist sales this month! Stay tuned for the mod batch at the end of the month though!
 
 

Customs

Kayy has opened up limited custom slots for Sushi Dogs! These custom slots will not be FCFS but rather on a limited, interest-based basis. There are mystery, on base, off base, and mythical options available!

Check out her journal here if you are interested!
 
 

Website Updates

I have been hard at work on finding gaps in our website that need to be filled to reduce confusion for our player base. Here are a few updates that have been made in the past few weeks!
 
  • Addition of a Recaptcha on the registration page to reduce spam. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be working (LOL) so I’m looking into upping the security of the page further.
  • Addition of the “Help” tab in the navigation. This section is now chock full of our guides! We are still working on writing up the trading/selling rules guide, as there has been an increased amount of confusion with some of our rules, and want to make sure it’s all upfront for you.
  • Disabled the ability to “name” your soosh on the website. We have restricted this to staff only to include food names, which means that sooshes will now be searchable by theme! With this happening as well, we are slowly adding on traits to all sooshes on the site. Please be patient while we slowly transition all characters on the site!
  • Refreshed look on the About page, with new icons and buttons, and the addition of the calendar!
  • Updated fonts and some colors across the site
  • Beginning stages of updating the trait guide with new images.
 
 

Future Plans

Now that we are getting into the swing of our ownership change, things are moving at a much quicker pace around Soosh HQ! With all hands on deck, we are making sure delay times are minimized and new ideas are constantly floating around! With the groundwork Chital has laid for us in terms of lore and world-building, we are excited to expand on it in the coming future. I don’t want to reveal too much yet as I don’t want to set any expectations to release dates, but here are a few things we have been brainstorming for transparency!
 
  • New Shops and Items
  • New NPCs
  • Phasing in new upgrade items and reworking Haute Potions
  • Achievement System
  • Soosh of the Month System
  • 8th Anniversary Event
  • Future Events
  • World Building
  • Site Design Overhaul
  • Seasonal Exclusive Traits
 

And that’s all we have for now! We can’t wait to see your entries to the DTE this year! 

Have any thoughts or ideas for what we can do to improve? Let us know!

May News - Announcement!

May 2021 Update Log - Important Update

 

Hello everyone! It’s been a minute since we have been able to update you on current happenings. Some pretty big changes are afoot so buckle in!

 



Ownership Updates

As of today, May 1st, Sushi Dogs will be under new ownership, and Chital will be stepping down from her role as the owner. We know this may seem sudden to you all but hope you understand that it was something needed to be done! We thank her for three years of ushering in a new era for the species! A lot has changed since her takeover and we can’t wait to see what comes next from the roadmap she has created.

The new owner should be someone a lot of you are familiar with and have seen around the group! Kayy (fawncore) has been a moderator of the group for almost four years now and is ready to take on the role of becoming the new owner of the species. We welcome her as our new leader and can’t wait to see what happens! We hope you stick around or hop on to see what is to come!

In this time of transfer, please be patient with new changes and letting things get settled. A lot has changed for us and we definitely have a steep learning curve to try and make sure everything is on track, especially with the new website and it’s day to day functions!



Moderation Team Additions

With ownership updates comes new change! We are happy to welcome on a new set of staff, something we haven’t done since 2017! Though our team has changed much over the past few years, we are excited to bring in some fresh minds with our new moderators! Please welcome the following members to our team!

Star - Staryon |  Dawnan - Dawnan |  Radio - Radio  |  Dipper - PrinceDipper

Interested in joining the team? Based on how things go with our new transition, we may open more slots! Please keep an eye out for applications in the future

 



Guest Artist Sales

Long awaited surely, but our Guest Artists auctions and sales will be back in action! Stay tuned every other Monday starting on potentially May 3rd, for new sales on our website and DeviantArt! Interested in becoming a Guest Artist? We will be running an interest and capacity check soon to see if anyone can join the team!

In addition we will also now be hosting a themed monthly mod batch at the end of each month in conjunction with the regular GA sales!

 


 

Charity Sales

Many years ago we ran a very successful sale to donate to the tragic Orlando nightclub shooting that targeted LGBTQ+ individuals. In todays current global climate, it feels only right to bring this back and run specific sales where all proceeds will go to amazing organizations that help marginalized groups. It’s a lot to get done in a short amount of time, so we hope to be able to spread these in throughout the year (June is an exciting month but we simply can't do all of it at once!). Stay tuned for future updates.

 



Summer Event

With summer right around the corner, surely you know what that means! Our annual summer DTA will be hot on it’s trails with some amazing designs from our Guest Artist team! I already have a few themes planned and am exciting to see what our wonderful GA's can create! Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks and for how it will be implemented into the website.

 



Suggestion Box

With a lot of new changes right out the gate, you may be wondering if larger game mechanics, traits, or items will be changing! For the first few months we would like to plan out according to what the community may think is in their best interest! You are our #1 priority afterall! Please fill out the anonymous survey below and let us know your thoughts!
