Summary

This blog post compiles all the highlights that have happened in Cookie Run, the Cookie Run Wiki, and Cookie Run: Ovenbreak (in affiliation with the Cookie Run: Ovenbreak Wikia). However, if TL;DR, compiling all the boldfaced highlights from each month, we get the following:

  • January: LINE Cookie Run celebrates their 2nd anniversary.
  • February: The Cookie Run Wiki celebrates their 2nd anniversary.
  • March: Cookie Run launches what was once their Twitter and Tumblr account.
  • April: Kakao Cookie Run gets an update called "Wrath of the Dragon".
  • May: The CookieRunner makes its public debut.
  • June: Wrath of the Dragon season catches up to LINE.
  • July: Devsisters announces and releases the production of a second series of mystery figurines, in what would be the last merchandise ever produced.
  • August: Kakao Cookie Run gets yet another update, this time called "Discovery of a New World". A new episode was released for the first time in more than a year.
  • September: Cookie Run: Ovenbreak is released as a soft launch.
  • October: TWO big events happened on this month.
    • The big update in Kakao Cookie Run catches up to LINE, this time released as "New World Discovered".
    • Cookie Run: Ovenbreak is released globally.
  • November: LINE Game celebrates their 4th anniversary. Not so much of a big highlight I guess.
  • December: Cookie Run: Ovenbreak releases a Winter Update, consisting of nine new Cookies and Pets as well as other additions to the game.

Looking from these highlights, you can say there were many events that kept fans excited over the updates that they had anticipated for. You can also say the overall performance of Cookie Run escalated in April, July, August, and October, but decreased after October due to Ovenbreak. When you dig deeper, you'll notice there hasn't been any new Cookies in Kakao Cookie Run from October onward. Many people say it might be due to Cookie Run: Ovenbreak, but who knows?

For the Business Geeks

I felt like this should be included as well, since I recently started to read business articles related to the financial status of Devsisters and how they are currently doing in the business world, and that I am currently taking General Business as a core subject for this school year. (It is really helpful indeed, since it helps you see things in a different perspective as well as sympathize with the companies of your favorite video games.)

Well, sorry to say this, but the stock for Devsisters has declined over the past months. It fell sharply in December, and I still wonder why. Here's the page to their stock watch if needed.

Stock watch - Devsisters - 2016

It was declining a bit in March, but then it rose up in April probably due to the Wrath of the Dragon update. It rose up even further around May to June, and continued to stay within 25 billion until October, with the soft launch of Cookie Run: Ovenbreak. After that, it fell sharply, with a very sharp decline around the Winter Update of Ovenbreak. It is increasing, but only by small increments.

Several Korean business articles, as well as this English article and this English article, explained about this situation. You can search up for these business articles using the Korean name for Devsisters (since using the English won't give much information) and then clicking on the "News" section.

We have currently heard that they are making three new games in the making. Will this bring them back up into the game? We may never know.

Discussion

  1. What, in your opinion, was the best highlight of the year for Cookie Run? The Cookie Run Wiki?
  2. (Kakao only) What was your favorite Cookie of 2016?
  3. Seeing that Kakao Cookie Run has been sluggish in updates recently, what can you infer from this situation? Do you think 2017 will make a change for the better?
