Spiral Knights is four years old! Can you believe it?

Join Spiral HQ and the Strangers as they celebrate Spiral Knights' birthday! We have several things going on, so let's get to it!

Today through April 7, 2015: Spiral HQ has assembled prize boxes from the past year together into a Surprise Box. When you open a Surprise Box, you will randomly receive a past prize box and confetti. There is also a chance to find a Stately Cap costume helm! For details on this box and its contents, visit the wiki here.

April 1-7, 2015: Help Biscotti, the Skylark's Head Chef, avoid disaster in two special missions - Total Caketastrophe and A Gremlin in Knead. Fight Creep Cakes and Batterbots to earn Cake Slice tokens, then visit Maskwell in Haven Town Square to exchange your tokens for:

- Cake helms
- Anniversary Prize Boxes
- other party accessories

New this year in the Anniversary Prize Boxes: the Prismatic Grand Topper, the Prismatic Field Cap, and the Prismatic Plumed Cap.

NOTE: Although this event does start on April 1, it's not a trick. Pinky swear. That's why we're announcing it now and not on that day!

April 3-5, 2015: The Birdsong Trading Company is holding a three-day giveaway for the Spiral Knights Anniversary celebration! HOW DO YOU GET STUFF?! Just be logged into the game for your chance to win party hats, confetti and other fun prizes.

Go forth and have fun! Thank you all for playing Spiral Knights. <3

Knights, you must be the square root of 2, because we feel irrational around you.

Yes, it's time once again for Valentine's Day, the holiday that celebrates terrible pickup lines, awkward feelings, and drowning one's longing in chocolate. To honor this occasion, we've made a selection of thematically appropriate items available on the Supply Depot through February 17th, 2015:
  • the Heart Eyes usable
  • the Crest of Love accessory
  • Love Auras
  • Forever Love Puppy Masks (non-expiring)
  • Red snipes for your guild hall
These items come unbound upon purchase so that you can give them to your friends, special friends, and confused strangers. You can even put them in Gift Boxes and add a heartfelt note, such as "wil u b my gf PLZ!!!1" (We tried that one. It didn't work well, but maybe it'll go better for you. Perhaps it's in the delivery. We will practice saying it in front of a mirror next time.)

ALTERNATELY: If you are celebrating Forever Alone Day, treat yourself.

Please note that Gift Box note text must comply with the Spiral Knights Terms of Service. <3

P.S. We released three new missions in Spiral Knights yesterday. Go play them!

Today's patch features the release of new Rank Missions! This patch includes three new Rank 10-1 missions that pave the way for even more new Vanguard missions.

Rank 10-1
Breaking in the Recruits
What's a knight to do after slaying the mighty Lord Vanaduke? Train some starry-eyed recruits of course! Pass on what you've learned as you lead a group of knights on a routine training exercise.

Crimson Chaos
Spiral HQ has been monitoring several known Crimson Order bases in hopes of intercepting one of their elusive high-ranking members. One of those bases has suddenly gone silent. Head down and investigate.

It Came From Below
A squad of Desna's Recon Rangers is trapped somewhere in deep in the Clockworks. Rescue them and find out what went wrong.

Strange things are afoot on Cradle, knights. Bring your friends and see if you can figure it all out!
