Time Traveling to the Beta Days

Hiya jammers! ^.^
Since im posting quite a few things about the Beta Days recently, i decided to do a post especially about it all. :3
First, i'll explain what the Beta Days where. (Aka Beta testing)
Beta testing lasted around 2010, but what does "Beta" mean?
Well basically almost every game has a"beta" period when they are first released to review the players about the game and see if they like it.
AJ must have been a big hit, so that's why it managed to get past the beta times. However, many jammers still miss the beta days - it was very different back then starting with the log in page . . 
 
The logo was different, and it had a more jungle-y theme with the vines hanging off and things.
In my opinion, i think the old log-in page was better - however this current one is also very nice and lively. ^.^
And moving on into Jamaa Township . .
 
It wasn't very different - except for that large green gem placed instead of Jammer Central.
Note that the jammers nametags are brown - there was no membership in the beta days.
Downhill was also slightly different, it had another building instead of the arcade. The old medical center, perhaps? :3
Note that Jam-Mart clothing is also downhill instead of up. 
However, jam-mart clothing inside hasn't changed very much at all - except for the clothes:
 
 The items back then seemed more "2D" and basic. Note that the nonmember necklace has seemed to be in the shops ever since for some reason . . .
 
And woah, skullies! Yep, they where the cheapest item ever on AJ at only 10 gems.
The other items also look different, such as the leaf necklace which has a more "puffy" appearence.
Anywho, this is Sarepia Forest . . .
 There was a huge rock instead of the fireplace - also there wasn't a slide even though it appeared mysteriously in AJ's beta trailer.
If you look at the circle, you can just see a teeny bit of the slide . . o.o
Odd, isn't it?
Perhaps AJHQ planned to do it later. :3
For more information, feel free to watch this pawsome video by Sagwasunshine!
See you around! ^.^

    6. im going to ask ajhq to bring back the beta days beacause i did not play in 2014.
      story: my bff was telling m about aj in 2012, and i thought it looked fun. But my dad would never let me play his laptop. but a year later we got a desktop computer and a pc. but at that time i forgot about aj. then i remembered. but it was to late. i did not know where anything was. it was all different. so i sighed and just started playing... ( sigh )

  2. I totally remember the beta days. Everybody was so much nicer, a little bit after beta you could meet the guides, there were giant mushrooms in Sarepia which were so much fun, and the game was just nicer and a lot more creative in general.

    1. I agree with nebula. :)
      Sure, nowadays are pretty nice but the game was just more creative and people seemed nicer. And it was so awesome how you could meet the guides!! I actually had a dream where these AJ guides came and told us Jamaa's Story! It was so awesome.

  4. Im princessanimal8 on aj, I really wanted to play in the beta days, alot of people think i did because im just a really good trader. I really do wish AJ could bring the beta's back to Jamaa for like an event! But for only awhile maybe. If i could i would ask AJHQ to bring it back or ask them to make a few more things nonmember. That was an awesome post CloudClaws. Thank you for sharing that with us.

  9. It's kind of ajhq's fault we want beta day back.... I mean if they didn't make up rare items on the game, everything would have the same value.

  17. I was one of the few in AJ beta days, I remember vividly. I miss it when the game was mostly trying to promote animals, now it is mostly jammers sitting around trying to get a spike, that disappoints me.
    My memories of the beta days: There was no diamonds or diamond shop, I still remember when it came out. There was no ocean, ya I'm serious, sea turtles and giraffes were members, and most of today's animals weren't there. There was also no adventures, and parties were at a specific time, and most words you couldn't use to chat
