Who won't even take bribes...



Anyways.
CMJ here did come in to chat about it with us a bit. I, at this current moment, am a little busy. Else I would be testing the Spring frantically.
But, what he said, in a nutshell, was that it works once a day.
Like most other Mementos.
He didn't specify this specifically today, but IIRC, it was said that it lasts for a sliver of time after the use.
This is unlike any other Mementos.
It may just be that its effects are only visible on one page, however, which wouldn't be abnormal.
I don't know. We'll see.

Another piece of news is that someone a while back actually emailed CMJ with what they found was the effects of the Spring. They got it right.
This person is currently unknown and wishes to leave it a secret.
I'd like to address to this person that I don't hold this against you.
I, personally, would not do the same, but that's just because I'm me.
I hope, soon enough, we can discover what this thing does so you don't have to hide out with your secret for long and we can talk and be friends anD WTF DOES THIS THIGN DO ABHFBJAKFJSHHGA

Ehem. Sorry.
Yeah, no. It's fine. I applaud you on your observance... abilities... Yeah. Good job.
I'm gonna be testing like crazy soon enough. With this dang SPRING 2.0 I'll be able to test even more, yada yada yada. We'll see what happens.

Happy hunting and good luck, everyone!

Edit: P.S. I'll also plan on doing, like, this whole write up about what we do and don't know to deduce what it actually does. I'll post that here too. It'll be, like, some sort of summary.

You are a broke, broke man. And will remain so. At least you won't get any money from me, because I hate to buy the cat in the bag. (<- My sorry attempt at financial bribery.)
I hate to use Improbabilitby Bombs, too, because I don't know what I'll get - my whole mindset is probably mismatched to Improbable Island Wink

A thought:
If you re-use the idea of an older memento, what about making the older memento available for $6 and the newer, more powerful one for $12?
Could be an incentive to donate for those that can't spare $10, and an incentive to spend even more on an upgrade ...... or an incenive to donate less than sparable $10, you'll need to estimate which is better for II's finances.

Hey... that's cutting a little too close to the bone to be funny, y'know.

I can tell you this much - the Super Spring does go Boinnnnininininininininininininnnnnnnnggggg! very impressively every time you use it. Much more so than last year's version! Way I look at it is, I'm going to be contributing to the Island anyway, doing my bit to keep CMJ from being so broke he can't keep the place running any more. A monthly memento, to me, is a Thank You, and a collectible. This one made me laugh. And it does something else mysterious... bonus!

(I don't use Improbability Bombs in combat either. I sell them. The people who buy them? I think they're mostly working on their Charm.)

Let's scientific method this bitch, eh?

Step one: ASK A QUESTION.
What does the Spring do?


Step two: DO BACKGROUND RESEARCH.
Here is a compilation of all the ambiguous information given to us by CMJ:
- It does SOMETHING.
- SOMETHING is very SUBTLE.
- It "does its thing right from your inventory."
- "There are some areas where its effects are more noticeable."
- It is "Appropriately themed."
- (There was something about timing that CMJ said. I'm not certain on how to even word it. Just go to page 2 of this post and look for it.)

Here is all the information we KNOW. Whether it be due to testing or CMJ simply stating this is how it is or a simple conclusion one came to:
- It does not cause one to attack first.
- It was coded in a short amount of time.
- It does not boost stamina.
- Usable ONCE PER DAY.
- LASTS 10 MINS.
- It has nothing to do with Down Below.
- Using it a lot of times does not change the "boing" use text.
- It does not give one favour.
- It does not affect charm.
- It is not a fighting buff.


Step three: CONSTRUCT A HYPOTHESIS.
I believe that the Spring does something other than annoy the hell out of me.


Step four: TEST.
...
Okay. Guess I have to do this, now. Will be back with more later.

Observant, the man said. There are so many aspects of the game to observe! Perhaps a list would help?

It would also seem that not everyone agrees with your sentiments, since I just noticed the donation bar is at blue for the first time in a long time that I can recall, and the Island is littered with crates! Perhaps everyone is instead trying to see who will be the first second to solve the riddle? (Or I'm just unobservant!)


Something something unintelligible gibberish something.

From what we know about it so far, the Spring's effects seem to be an outlier from the others.
No other MM lasts an amount of time.
No other MM really... has anything to DO with time.
They're all pretty simple do this then this happens, or like... a buff. Super simple stuff.
I'm really at a loss. I don't know how to even go about testing to find what it does.

Next, though, I'm gonna do what Sessine suggested and just... list all possible things one can observe. This'll be fun...

Before use:

(That's a tiny bit of a picture of the NewDay page.)

After using the Super Spring:

(I noticed the change immediately, was just a little late on taking the pic.)

Lea tested, got the same thing. Could more people test to be sure, please?

Also, this would explain the whole "Lasting amount of time" thing I was hung up on. Yay.

Spring Log - 2017.
Day 3 in to April.
The Monthly Memento is a Hyper Spring, similar in concept to a Hyper Cube, except REAL.
Interacting with the Hyper Spring results in it having a baby Spring.
I have so many Springs now. So many Springs. It does not seem to show any signs that it will ever stop.
So many Springs. Please. Send help.
