Finobe

About

Finobe (/ˈfaɪˌnōb/) is an old brickbuilding game revival dedicated to bring back nostalgia, and also serves as a public alternative to Nobelium, a private revival owned by Raymonf, the creator of Finobe. Finobe is currently the largest public revival out there.

It currently has a 2012 client. It previously had 2010 and 2007 clients, both of which were removed. 2010 is planned to return in the future.

Finobe can be abbreviated as F*.

Complete History of Finobe

Date formats are listed as MONTH/DAY/YEAR.

On 4/19/2017, Raymonf got an idea to "bring back" another revival, Graphictoria, since it had been closed.

Work on GT Reborn started.

GT Reborn was later renamed to Filude, which was an anglicized version of the Latin phrase "fictilis ludere", which means "brick play."

An unknown user then registered the Filude domain before anyone else could take it and added a virus to the site, so a new name had to be chosen. Finobe was the new name.

Finobe was in private testing from April to early May 2017.

Finobe's website was opened to the public on 5/15/2017.

The first client, 2010, was released on 5/20/2017. Places didn't exist yet, so everything had to be self-hosted. The 2010 client eventually became very broken and buggy as time went on.

The first building contest started on 6/5/2017, which was based around a summer/desert theme. The winner of the contest was rocket.

Sometime in Summer 2017, OwOsOwO.png, the old currency, were changed to DiusDiu.png.

On 8/9/2017, the 2012 client was released, and became Finobe's main client. 2010 was disabled sometime afterwards, as it had no plans of being fixed anytime soon.

Sometime in 2017, the name was changed to Fracasotoria for a few days as a joke.

On 9/2/2017, the Finobe Video Service was released.

On 9/30/2017, the Catalog was reset, and every user was given back 1/4 the amount of Dius that they spent in the Catalog before the reset.

In December 2017, the first Giftsplosion started on the Finobe Catalog. Giftsplosion was twelve days of gifts. You could earn gifts by completing tasks or by purchasing them in the Catalog. The gifts would later open, and everyone who owned a certain gift would receive a new certain item.
