Whats the deal with the Gnomes?

    If you 'liked' Entropia Universe on Facebook you have probably noticed the images they posted with Gnomes in them. So far there are 5 images and an interesting description:

    461043_562960987087555_1301335294_o. 923037_562960977087556_192318724_n. 934108_562960980420889_1226190410_n. 964589_563879490329038_2070762805_o. 976114_563879493662371_163250674_o.

    They mention a global Swedish furniture company, which of course could only be one company, IKEA. The gnomes themselves also suggest IKEA, as they have been used in and TV commercial in the UK:

    But what is the deal with these gnomes, is Mindark working on a deal with IKEA?​
    Well, after contacting both IKEA in the UK (where the video is from) and IKEA in Sweden (Mindark is in Sweden) it turns out that none of them have any clue about this. So, either there is indeed nothing going on, the press officer I talked to does not know yet or she is a good liar.​
    This makes me believe that it is just some people at Mindark having a little fun. Looking at the images (so called screenshots) it is pretty clear that the gnomes are edited in, so I think it is safe to say there are no gnomes in game (yet).​
    The last line in Update 2, suggests they are looking for screenshots of the gnomes and because they are not really in game I think they are asking people to make their own images, like they did. So far nobody has posted any images on Facebook with the gnomes, so either people don't understand this 'event' or the ones that do, don;t have a Facebook account. So, to help those people we are giving them a place to post in game images with gnomes. If you have image editing skills and would like to take part in this funny 'event' feel free to post them here.​

    After I posted my first find on the Entropia Universe Facebook page they asked me if the gnomes got a message trough. So, I started to look around and found this:

    lol, well Ewok, MindArk posted some images of gnomes on their Facebook page asking for people to post screenshots if they found any themselves. The gnomes are from the UK commercial of IKEA (look at my first post for the video). Ever since those images I seem to be running into gnomes everywhere :)

    The 'why' in this story is a bit beyond me as well, but in the meantime lets have a little fun with it.
