Prehistoric Party 2013 was a party which started on January 17 and ended on January 31, 2013. It was confirmed by Spike Hike on Twitter. Due to players donating more than 10 billion coins during the Holiday Party 2012, Spike Hike posted on Twitter a sneak peek of the Plaza during the Mesozoic Era of the party. Penguins were able to time travel using the Time Trekker, and members were able to transform into Dinosaurs.
This was the first party to not be an expedition in January, since 2009.
Gary's removed mascot scripts indicated that it was originally supposed to take place in the past and future, at the time it was called the Future Fest.
Judging by Gary's mascot script, penguins traveled to the Senonian epoch of the Late Cretaceous, around 72.1 million years ago. Despite this, both Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops are from the much later Maastrichtian epoch of the Late Cretaceous, about 66 million years ago.
This was the first time that the Toolbar, Moderator Badge, and map icon were changed.
It was a nominee for the Best Party of 2013 in The Spoiler Alert.
Glitches and Bugs
It played different music than expected when you logged in on certain occasions.
Like the Holiday Party 2012, when the player transformed into a Dinosaur, sometimes the player became Old Blue.
Sometimes when you traveled back to the present and right back to the prehistoric time, you would seem to have more coins than you had before. However, if you tried to buy something, it would say that you did not have enough coins. It would then show a never-ending loading screen, and the only solution was to log off and back on to fix it.
An example of the
coins glitch At the beginning of the party, A Humbug Holiday was being played at The Stage and had a The Penguins That Time Forgot music and The Penguins That Time Forgot Catalog. That glitch was fixed.
Similar to the Halloween Party 2012, if you danced or performed a special dance while transformed into a Dinosaur, your penguin's sprite would appear dancing over the dinosaur's sprite.
Sometimes when you logged in at the prehistoric time, the EPF Phone would be above the map.
If you went to 2013, opened your EPF Phone and then your map to go back to dinosaur times, your phone would be above the map.
On January 19, if you tried to claim the Waterfall, a message would appear saying it was unavailable, even though it should have been available. This glitch was fixed the next day.
If you clicked your Player Card as a Pteranodon and then clicked a place on the wall while you transformed back into a penguin on ground, your penguin would waddle onto the wall.
If you put on the Tour Guide Hat and held up the sign, then became a dinosaur, the dinosaur would be "holding" the penguin and you could carry it anywhere, as prey.
Sometimes when using another browser, the eggs you collected in the previous browser would be gone.
If you were friends with Gary the Gadget Guy and he was on your friend list, it would say "offline" for the whole party. This glitch was happening to all mascots since the Adventure Party: Temple of Fruit with Rockhopper.
