Early in 2013, Tyler started a Kickstarter to start full-time development on some core features of HabitRPG.
The initial goal for funding was set to $25,000 USD. This was exceeded to an amount of $41,191 USD by 2,817 people showing interest in the project. Accordingly, the involvement with the community was always a part of HabitRPG.

Habitversary Party is a monthly challenge where players celebrate their annual HabitRPG membership-birthday and celebrate their success stories. These stories are then posted on the Habitversary Party blog.
Special Events in HabitRPG for seasons and holidays common in the USA were started in 2013. Grand Galas are part of these special events and there are four Grand Galas every year. These fun-filled events have included a temporary change in costume for the NPCs, special items for players, introduction of new quests, limited edition seasonal gear, and other surprises.
