There's finally something to do here!

 

A mini game was released where you have to find your way around a maze and collect coins and scarabs along the way.

There's a total of four archievements to be unlocked:
*Just in time
Getting out of the maze in less than 26 seconds.
*In one fell swoop
Collecting all five piles of coins and getting out.
*Surprise, surprise!
Collecting all five scarabs and getting out.
*Fast Track
Getting out without moving more than five doors.

 

Jellyneo is currently working on a guide.

 

 

Update 21st February:
A new mini game has been released! Here you have to help Lyra's boat navigate through the waters. Read page 13 of the story and scroll down to find the link to the game.

Here are the archievements:

*Long Lasting

Survive for five or more minutes.

*Smooth Sailing

Collect 400 points (not coins). This takes about nine minutes.

*The 4 the merrier

Collect four bubbles.

 
The best tip here is that obstacles can never appear twice in the same lane, so stay in the lane you last avoided an obstacle. Some people have had much better success with playing the game on their mobile phone. Try to collect as many bubbles as you can for they shield you when you fail to avoid an obstacle.
Alternatively you can focus on just the center and the right lanes and move to the other when you dodged an obstacle (thanks to GhostMommy for this tip!).

Nice.

For the maze, it seems like Google Chrome won’t allot the walls to shift. I switched to Firefox and they worked as intended.

Another tip for the walls, is to make sure you hold down the arrow key, don't tap it if the walls don't turn for you. Makes things a hell of a lot easier. In saying this though, I am still yet to get to 25 seconds or less for the achievement. Always managing only ~27 at best -_-

I did my best on the maze, tried for over an hour but always wound up around 28-30 seconds.

I finally gave up and ask my hubby to do the maze speed-run for me, lol.

Phew, finally managed to do it exactly for 25 sec. Didn't event take me too much tries. I don't like the game particularly much, let's hope the next steps will be better.

Ugh, that 25 second limit was NOT fun. That darn 3rd door never opens unless I approach it a certain way, and the fact that blocks spawn randomly in the game doesn't help either. Anyways, I'm glad I'm done with this particular game.

I had to basically hold down the right and up arrow keys to make that 25 second limit. It helps you go around corners faster. I just made it at exactly 25 seconds.

Changing site themes also seems to help a lot with getting the archievement. Neopets Basic seems to be the best one; the new Holiday theme apparently slows down the game a lot.

I got mine yesterday, also at exactly 25 seconds. Not the most fun plot step, but at least something is happening.

I had to refresh +30 times before being able to do the 25 seconds run achievement, bc chrome was acting bitchy (I was using a basic Neopet's theme)

Chromes a bit funky when going through the walls. just keep running into them and they will open. took me 8 tries i believe and got 25 on the dot with chrome. feel like anything under that is almost impossible.

It's been a while since I was last around for a plot - I think the last one was Tale of Woe for me - but I don't remember plot steps being released so infrequently.

Apparently the river-navigation mini game glitched and the glacial swiftness is proceeding with the speed of a drunk snail towards fixing the glitch.

Welp, looks like the plot's been ditched  :thinking:

 

TNT has taken the plot page down from the site now. www.neopets.com/desert/thelostheirloom/index.phtml just redirects to the Neo main page  :doh:

Oh no! :( Does that mean I will not get a trophy? I want a trophy!

 

The rest of the plot seems to be online still. Maybe they just made the redirect by accident or something. Hopefully they'll clear that up soon.

Seems as though they fixed the issue with the redirect and the plot main page is now back too. Nothing new has begun either, no surprises there.....

Due to the world wide release of that new app being Feb 28, I feel that’s when the plot will either end or something besides a story update will happen. Funny how the prize shop is up before the plot is even over and one of the achievements still can’t be completed.

I like how the prize shop is up. That way I can see if putting in effort will be worthwhile or not.

I don't understand why there is a prize shop when there has been nothing that would allow you to get more points?
