Ready to Talk like a Pirate? posted by Artix on

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is coming Friday!

This weekend, our games will be getting into the spirit with Pirate themed events and armor sets! Which is AWESOME timing considering my new found obsession with the Captian Harlock movie and anime-series. So obsessed... that I formally requested that Dage draw me a "Captain Harlock-adin" armor & cape set. (Note: I share!) The official Talk Like a Pirate day is on the 19th, but So here is a sneak peak of what is coming this Friday!

"WAVES OF WRATH" in EpicDuel

Waves_of_Wrath_Excerpt.jpg
 
  • Battle pirates and Eldritch horrors in a newly redesigned West Naval Yard
  • New 3 part mission chain
  • New Naval themed NPC's to battle

"DEEP TERROR - DEATH FROM BELOW" in AdventureQuest Worlds

The AQWorlds team is having a full release for this year's Talk like a Pirate Weekend! The team is also planning on releasing some secret treasure maps this week. In addition to the highly anticipated Naval Commander Class, the Naval Commander Design contest is abotu to begin! Players will have a chance to design armors and submit them... the winner will get 1K AdventureCoins, a special Trobble Pet (0AC), and their design will become available for all players in next year's Talk Like a pirate Day!

OTHER GAMES

Our other games will be getting in on the piratey fun too! Fun fact: our first Talk Like a Pirate Day took place in the original AdventureQuest in 2004. Captain Rhubarb appeared on a ship to teach land lovers how to talk like a pirate and quiz them on their knowledge of pirate lore. Secret buttons were added all over his interface-- from his eye patch to the barrels of moblin berry juice and everything in between. I love easter eggs. The event has been updated with new things every year since! I always felt that the way our community embraces odd, random and silly things like this is part of what makes our games so different.

Mobile User Interface Design posted by Artix on
IMG_5481.PNG
 
UI (User Interface) design "meet & sketch" for the single-player version of AdventureQuest Mobile! Designing things to fit phone + tablet + web screens is a lot trickier than it looks. Not only because the resolutions and aspect ratios are different from device to device... but also because you use your finger (or thumbs) for one and your mouse for the other. We spend a lot of time holding an imaginary game in the air saying things like "you know... if I am using my thumbs to play, I prefer attacking with my right hand thumb." 
 
IMG_5480.JPG
 
In the sketches you can see my (SUPER ULTRA AMAZING) scribbles... and how Cysero is able to turn it into something beautiful and functional. Look at the right most doodle then scroll back up and look at the picture of BattleOn-- yup, that is all Cysero had to go on! As an added bonus everything looks amazing on J6's wicked awesome backgrounds. Oh! And in the sketch above... to the left you will see a preview of "WEAPON FUSION". This allows you to combine two weapons.. you choose which parts of each weapon to keep (Art, Stats, Proc).. and them fuse them to get a new weapon. This is how it will be possible to "level up" a weapon and make it more powerful in this game. www.Artix.com
 
IMG_5477.JPG
 
"RAWR" Sometimes I look at this killer artwork and think, "We should just release the game in doodle version!"

P.S. Meanwhile, in another room in the Lab, DRAGONS is rocking along nicely... will post you an update with the newest painted art next week!

QUESTION: What do you think of the "WEAPON FUSION" idea? Is this something you would like to see in other games as well?

BREAKING NEWS! Dragons & Project: AdventureQuest Omni

Greetings friend! I just returned home from DragonCon 2014 where we officially announced video game projects that you are going to love!  WARNING: This post contains Brutalcorn thumb-wrestling, baby teleportation stories, and semi-spoilers about the new storyline in AdventureQuest Worlds!

(What is DragonCon? Read the previous post.)

DragonCon PHOTOS!

I posted a gallery of 80+ DragonCon Photos on my Facebook page. Check it out and be sure to Like the post to recieve updates when I add more. As team members return home and send me their photos I will upload them there. 

Stories from the Artix Video Game Panel

The best DragonCon panel yet! I would like to thank everyone who attended giving us so much support. I would like to thank everyone who was unable to go (both staff and players) for being a part of our community and sending so us so much love. We hope for the chance to meet you and all of our other fellow gamers at future conventions.  So here we go... STORY TIME!

Artix-Panel-2014-Cheer.jpg
 
Originally, I was not scheduled to be at DragonCon due to having... a baby. But the little fella came 2-weeks early and when a few other staff members had to cancel at the last minute, I got permission to go! Cysero and I came up with a funny skit. We kept my presence at DragonCon a secret. Then, at the panel,  Cysero showed a video... which showed me at home, holding the baby... talking about how I wish I was there with everyone. Then, I was suddenly given permission! But how would I get to the panel (8+ hours away) in time? Fortunely once every 100 years a portal opens from my house to DragonCon! The players chanted a count down and when they reached 1... I bust through the door in the video, and then through the door into the panel room at DragonCon. They were so surprised! (Except the clever 20 of you that "busted me" finding me in the halls the day before.) To take the joke further.. I ran back through the door and appeared with a baby swaddled in a blanket. I smiled and whispered, "Shhh... the baby is sleeping" Then after a dramatic pause I non-chalantly tossed the baby through the air at someone-- it was a just a doll. Everyone gasped, then started to laugh. The energy in the room started building.
 
BrutalCornthumbWrestling.jpg
 
Brutalcorn invaded the panel and was challenged to "Thumb Wrestle to the Death" three awesome players. Fortunately for them, Brutualcorn is a terrible thumb wrestler!
Brutalcorn-thumbwrestling.jpg
 
WOAH! The player Brutalcorn is  battling is cosplaying as Cysero!
 
BuykWUXIIAA319z.png
 
Stryche actually had Cysero's joke shirt created... they were given to the winners.
 
ArtixPanel-T-shirt.jpg
 
George Lowe, the voice of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, also crashed the panel. We made him read the insanely long MechQuest plan revealing a bunch of new content... but George Lowe has never played MechQuest and had no idea how to prounounce most of the things on the page! At some point he just started making stuff up.
 
Artix-Panel-2014.jpg
 
We told our most embarasing and inappropriate stories from the lab... we are really open on the design notes. But we are REALLY open in person. I apologize for any therapy bills resulting from the panel.

 
We got the entire panel up on their feet to dance along to the BattleGems Dance Dance video!
 
Also we got a special request from a player who's friend was a huge fan and unable to come... and very politely asked if we could just say "Hi!". We said we could do one better than that :-) We got everyone there involved... we made a video and the entire staff then the ENTIRE ROOM said hello-- you guys are so awesome. Furthermore we sent her a signed copy of the new poster and an action figure.

OFFICIAL =AE= ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

13 Lords of Chaos Poster launches this Tuesday!

Available this Tuesday on www.HeroMart.com! Because this is a piece of history that deserves to be on your wall.

AdventureQuest Worlds' NEW STORY is here!

AdventureQuest Worlds players were thrilled at the seemless transition into the game's new overarching main storyline... "ANCIENT EVIL." A cataclysmic like event has returned the Elemental Titans to our world. Those blank areas on the map are about to start opening up. Also, a cast of never before villains have escaped from the underworld do to the... um... death of Death. It is hard to make the rest of this post without spoilers. So if you have not completed it yet, then SPOILER ALERT!!! Stop reading right now and skip down to the next post. Seriouly. Ok, so you are caught up with the current release? Then you know that the Hero is in fact the reincarnation of the Eternal Dragon of Time... the "god" of our multiverse. Before you actualized your powers, you also became the 13th Lord of Chaos. Following the tragic series of events that we witnessed King Alteon undergo... you went on to do what no other Chaos Lord had done before you-- conquer the world. Then... FURTHERMORE... to escape the underworld, you assassinated Death himself. Which, technically makes you Death too! The final battle with Drakath was the most epic series of fights and cutscenes in the games history. My Twitter feed was full of awe as it exceeded the hype. However, a fixed point in time... Drakath, in a depserate attempt to flee you, enters the Chaos Gate. Defeating him was the only way to stop the end of the world... but doing so would strip you of all of your powers. Just like it did Drakath. The decision of a true Hero... good or evil... is to sacrifice everything for your cause. You know what happens next O_O. The Chaos Gate was closed... but the Queen of all Monsters escaped into our world. Time happens differently in the Chaos Realm... so when you return a long while later, you find the world has been devastated by the re-awakened Ancient Elemental Titans and the villains that escaped Death's underworld. The Queen of all Monsters. the one who created Drakath, has returned to our world... to defeat her you will have to face the Titans and regain your powers. AdventureQuest World's true storyline has finally begun!

DRAGONS - A new "Idle Game" for your Apple, Android, and/or Web browser!

We are collaborating with the creators of Cookie Clicker to build an Idle Game about Dragons! There will be 12 Dragons, each with a unique storyline & progression tree. You can follow our progress at www.AQDragons.com

AQDragons-IceDragon.jpg
 

When I first talked to Orteil about the project and he said "yes"... I told him that I was going to make a video in my armor of how excited I was telling everyone. He probably thought I had forgot. He probably was not expecting this video, LOL!

CookieClicker-Dragons.jpg

This project is pretty far along... and the Dragons you will be raising in this game play an important role in the game we announced next!
 
But first... the wall.
 

THE WALL

Everyone who strives to reach the stars eventually hits a wall... ironically, the wall in this video is not a metaphor. I showed this personal video at the panel before we announced the next game project... it says a lot. It says alot about what it takes to accomplish something hard. Failure is only a temporary situation. Never giving up... battling on... persistance... is the path to acheiving your dreams! No matter what your dreams are. And you know what I REALLY want to make. Watch the video then please read the next game announcement post.

Serious face time.... here we go!

 

ADVENTUREQUEST: OMNI PROJECT (Phase III)

Behold, our ambitious 3-stage game project, officially declared! Long live AQ2D & AQ3D!

Adventurequest-project-Omni.jpg

For the past two months we have been posting ambigious art samples on Twitter and Facebook to get your feedback on different NPC and art styles. We have been asking you random questions and listening to your feedback. These images are prototype characters for our biggest and most ambitious project... a bold step to not only to age up our games, not only to future proof the games against rapidly changing technology, not only to bring our games to new platforms & devices... but start a snowball effect that will avalache right into a new AdventureQuest 3D!

"Hey! These characters look awesome and.. wait, is that back arm art!?!?!"

THIS WAS THE PLAN OF "PROJECT OMNI" FROM THE START... and it gets better.

Adventurequest3D-lives.jpg

3D models of the character armors are being created at the same time the 2D ones are! 3D stuff take a lot longer to create, so building the assets in the background while making the 2D game will give it time to all come together. It is vital that we do it in this order to succeed. AQ3D is "The Wall" -- and the steps needed to climb up it are listed below.

THE GAME PLAN

  1. Create a "single player" 2D AdventureQuest (Mobile & Web)
  2. Use the 2D game assets to create a Multiplayer Game (Improved real time combat & PvP)
  3. Create a 3D version of that game that matches seemlessly (Working on 3D assetsin background.)

Also... give the technology that we are building to the DragonFable, MechQuest, Oversoul, etc teams so that they can upgrade the games. We already have a working prototype of the Mobile 2D engine (It is a lot like DragonFable and AQ Classic mixed.) We also have a single player run around of the 3D characters (Cysero showed a video of it) where you can battle a few of the monsters. Do not get the wrong idea... this is a big project and will take quite some time. We want you to be with us every step of the way from 2D to 3D. You probably have a gazillion questions... to which I would like to say... AWESOME! Because, LOL, we probably do not have answers to them yet! ...but that means we get to answer them together.

Please repeat after me....

DRAGONS! AdventureQuest 2D! AdventureQuest 3D!
DRAGONS! AdventureQuest 2D! AdventureQuest 3D!
DRAGONS! AdventureQuest 2D! AdventureQuest 3D

LONG LIVE ADVENTUREQUEST 3D!!!
