Global EPF Phone Hiccup?

By Stu on October 17, 2020 | 217 Comments

Hi Penguins,


We’ve been receiving a LOT of comments about a hiccup happening with EPF phones across the island.


As our purpose of development on the game, we thought we’d take a look at this! Unfortunately, nothing from our end has happened and we’ve actually not touched these phones of yours. We noticed all phones across the island were shut down at approximately the same time on Friday.


It seems to be something out of our reach, we are actually unable to turn those things on ourselves, seems like a complete shut down of the system!



Don’t panic… JUST YET! We’ve forwarded this onto Gary the Gadget Guy to make sure he’s aware of the issue and it’s safe to say that he is indeed looking into this.


If you see Gary the Gadget Guy during the Halloween Party, make sure to give him a high-five and a great ole’ welcome back!


Until then… Waddle on!

This must be an involvement with Herbert or Klutzy.

He’s always a party pooper.

First, he kidnapped Gary, and then forced him to build a solar laser, and removed our solar power.

He could strike again.

Gmaer572 October 21, 2020

SO, i noticed the field ops and main tv in epf hq have been disabled as well… and there’s herbert and klutzy pumpkins there too… which means herbert was probably there to personally place the pumpkins [and break the monitors]. I mean, i was joking about Operation: Blackout 2 before but now…

370 days old
Gmaer572 October 21, 2020

So both Herbert and Gary are gonna make an appearance at the same party at quite possibly the same time… DOES THAT MEAN WHAT I THINK THAT MEANS????? Operation blackout TWO????? (Probably not, but a gingerbread man can dream right?)

This might be a crazy idea, but maybe the test bots are behind this. After all, they manage to return in the System Defender game, so they probably know their way around the EPF system. Maybe I’m thinking about it too much – either way, I can’t wait to see what’s going on!

I found a secret on the spy phone’s screen. It appears to be an image of some sort. But it’s too faint to make out. Perhaps a photoshop on a screenshot will do the trick?

Now since we just got updates on things.. I think of three suspects that are behind this. Herbert, Skip, and maybe even Gary himself. Ghosts can use electromagnetic interference, and that is why all EPF technology is broken. And Gary may be possessed by Skip… we need to see how he acts!
