A new April Fool’s Day update is shaking things up Cookie Run: Kingdom by transforming its Cookie characters into new (and sometimes hot) humanoid versions. The new Shroomie Shenanigans update is now available in the free-to-play mobile city builder.
Shroomie Shenanigans will be live through April 14, developer Devsisters said. The stars of the event are Poison Mushroom Cookie, which rewards you with Shroomies for completing in-game tasks. Feeding your characters the Shroomies will transform them into an alternate version of their character.
The results are hilarious – many of the cookies take real life inspirations to make a joke. For example, Tiger Lilly only gets alternate art with a huge, realistically drawn tiger behind her, while Espresso Cookie is turned into an abstract piece of art. Here’s a Twitter fan spotting the in-game art:
Here’s Dark Choco Cookie transforming into some kind of monstrous being:
Devsisters shared an alternative art gallery with Polygon:
A key part of Cookie Run: Kingdom Fandom draws fan art and reimagines what different cookies might look like. (Even we at Polygon couldn’t resist the cookies’ inevitable charm.) It’s one thing to see this kind of art on Twitter, but to see it pop up in-game feels a bit of a fever dream.
