Time for some news – as part of the Mega Update, we’re introducing Shards as an in-game currency reward. Hello, a marbillion questions! Let’s roll with the basics for now:
What are Shards used for?
Shards are used to unlock cosmetic items you choose from the newly redesigned ‘My Marble’ cosmetics screen. Trails, hats, and marbles all have varying costs depending on how complex they are and how difficult their other unlock method is (if applicable).
Many cosmetics will be unlockable by achievements/trophies OR by spending Shards. Some cosmetics will still be achievement-unlock only — Shards can’t buy everything!
How do I earn Shards?
Short answer: By playing the game however you want to!
Long answer: Single Player, Multiplayer, and Weekly Challenges all reward Shards. Shards can only be earned by playing the game!
Let’s look at Single Player as an example. You’ll earn Shards for:
– Completing the level for the first time
– Earning Silver, Gold, and Diamond for the first time (they stack, so don’t worry about slowing yourself down to get them in order)
– A daily completion bonus (per level)
– Each completion (scaled based on level length)
*Special Note: If you use Shards to purchase a cosmetic that is unlocked by a Trophy – you’ll receive a 50% refund when you collect that Trophy for the first time.
And that wraps up today’s lesson in Marblenomics. The best part?
No homework! Enjoy your week.
