MegaCon is a HUGE convention happening in Orlando, Florida next weekend. Join us for the official AdventureQuest 3D panel!

"AdventureQuest 3D Video Game with Artix"

WHAT: AQ3D Panel at MegaCon ( in Orlando, Florida
WHEN: Saturday, May 28th @ 3pm
WHERE: West Building Room W300

Expect our usual level of random hijinx which will include giving away Early Access & STEAM codes, showing embarrassing behind the scenes videos, and talking about forbidden secrets.

I am really surprised at the huge celebrity guest list at MegaCon this year. There will be actors from Doctor Who (Rose), the Walking Dead (Daryl), Game of Thrones (Circe), the New Star Trek (which will also premiere their 1st episode there), and a lot more. Stan Lee, William Shattner, Kevin Smith, and... (if you are one of my Facebook/Twitter friends from the Philippines, please sit down and brace yourself for this next one) Alodia Gosiengfiao. She is my favorite cosplayer of all time! ...and mark my words, I will not leave that convention alive without getting a cheesy thumbs up photo! So if you see her, please politely ask her to make sure she gets a photo with Artix. Or better yet... invite her and her boyfriend Eric to come to our our panel!

This is our first year running a panel at MegaCon and I am really excited. I really hope you can join us, and if you can make it please let me know in the comment section below.

“Prizes for winners include AdventureQuest 3D Beta Keys, Badges and Artix Points!”
Our summer themed art contest has prizes including AQ3D Keys, Badges, and Artix Points!  At first we thought, “Wow, this is a really dangerous idea for an art contest...” but, LOL, why not? Draw your favorite AdventureQuest characters, items, scenes on an epic summer/beach/vacation adventure.

  • What is the worst monster to encounter at the beach?
  • Do the undead enjoy soaking up some rays?
  • What would your favorite hero be doing at the beach?
  • Are there any Summer Vacation movies that would be perfect to parody?

You do not have to play the game where the character is from. But it helps to know what kind of character it is. Just make sure you read all the rules and that you send in your entry before the deadline.

Your Lair or mine? posted by Artix on

Upcoming Dungeons of Throne of Darkness

The Throne of Darkness begins this Friday… a brand new main storyline for AdventureQuest Worlds. There are 7 villains in this story, each will unlock a new major dungeon. I like using the term dungeon… even when describing an outside area like a forest or clouds you can walk on. To get a flying eyeballs view of the land we shall soon explore together, let us sent forth our scout… Jimmy the Eye!

Jimmy the Eye is a flying eyeball. 

He is blue. 

As he flies North, he thinks to himself… why is so little known about the North?

It starts to rain. 

The rain blurs his vision, and every clap of thunder makes him jump. 

The red eerie glow of the setting sun silhouettes a castle…

The castle appears to be growing… the castle appears to be made of bone…

He flaps harder against the turbulence or tornados…

They seem to be coming from a series of portals. 

Is it a rip in time and space?

Or perhaps it is… WHAT THE!?!?!

The sun has gone black and he obsesses on an indescribable twisted shape of triangles. 

Perhaps the rumors of the 4th Dimensional Pyramid were true?

If that is true then… but before there is time for another thought, he hears weapons clashing and screams. The Death Pit Arena… a half-Dragon General stands watch as gladiators do battle.

The flying eyeball tries to look away but is blinded by what he sees next…

A Tower...

A tower made entirely of mirrors. He notices a parade of young girls being led into the tower… 

No less strange than what he thought he had seen in the clouds just moments before.

But if he ever said what he thought he saw up on those clouds... with all its bacon and cats they would just call him crazy.

So he flies on to his final destination...

It is a secret place. 

A place where THE COUNCIL used to meet...

Meet to scheme and solve their "problems."

That place, without question… was the THRONE OF DARKNESS.
