AQ3D - Legend of LORE!

Posted by on 90 comments

It is official... sock puppets told us so.

Thus it shall be named, and within we shall explore a vast new expanding world, become masters of the elements, unlock the power of the Dragon's light, and discover the secrets of the mysterious Grimsbane. But first, we need to see if we can make chat work. Chat-only alpha test with incomplete graphics begins!

 

AdventureQuest 3D - Legend of LORE

NOTE: The alpha server is currently OFFLINE while we "fix things."

PLAY Alpha Test #1 (Chat-only test)

 

 

Alpha Test #1 is LIVE (worth 250 Alpha pts.)

Did we surprise you? If you qualify, please help us alpha test our multiplayer server and chat. NOTE! This is not a playable game.  This is not even a Beta test. This is the absolute earliest test of a game concept. An Alpha test is like a sketch, NOTHING is finished nor final! (please repeat this over and over in your head and to other players -- most people are not used to seeing things before they are finished.)  The Alpha tests will be unbearably laggy, buggy and most things will break in new and horrific ways. (Ah... just like the good ol' days.) Most game companies would never show an alpha test to their players… but we are different. We want you involved from the start. All graphics, animation, and everything will be changed based on your feedback. Your duty is to tell us everything that breaks, works, needs improvement and work alongside us to make this the web-based 3D game that you have always dreamed of playing. 

 

Play the Alpha Test of AdventureQuest 3D

 

Thank you for your help!

Naming AdventureQuest 3D has been one of the most challenging things we have done. Originally, we wanted to call it "LORE" (aka Land of Rising Evil) which was the original name of AdventureQuest before we named it AdventureQuest. However, for legal reasons we were unable to call this game just LORE.We were also unable to call it the other 5 dozen names we liked... many of them suggested by you guys! I would like to thank everyone who gave us name ideas on my Twitter, FaceBook, and Artix.com comments. Just between us... the team was completely deadlocked in trying to name the game for over a month. We made a giant list... and after doing all the "what are we legally allowed to use" and "what actually fits the game," we finally narrowed it down to 4 choices. I actually registered all 4 domain names just in case. We always talk about how the players help shape the games and help us make decisions... well this was a big one.   I made the post here on Artix.com, on FaceBook, and on Twitter.... the response from all sources made our choice clear. If you voted for one of the others, do not worry... all of these are things that will be in the game.

Ayrtonius
Ayrtonius: I'm a bit annoyed that the first test was a 'Surprise' test when it was said we would know when Alpha started. I've been waiting for the Alpha testing to start for a while and have been checking this page since the game was announced, making sure that i'd be able to participate in the alpha. But then all of a sudden, "Surprise Test!", and i missed it because i was working. By the time i found out about this, the test was over.

Not happy at all, you said we were going to be informed about testing schedules.

Zhing: If you are stuck at "connecting to server", scroll down and it will say "Server is currently OFFLINE". That means that it's not going to connect, ever, until they put it back Online. NOTE: In the post, it says that the server is offline. Just read carefully and you'll know.
P.S. The logo looks awesome!! so cool... can't wait... Legends of Lore!!!!!!!!!

Rezilia: Once again: WHY would you name it Legend of Lore when it has NOTHING to do with Lore? =.=

Also, you need to add the Tab function to the Login. That way we can just rush-type our username and password instead of having to click both boxes.

Shadowknight: The game takes place in Lore. It's called Legend of Lore because it's Lore's legend, at least I think so. If I'm wrong make a reply.

Paleo\
Paleo\: I must say im disapointed how i missed the first test since it wasnt announched like i was kinda expecting to happen... so yea... kinda sux. Also becous this was a suprise test i dont think it is realy fair to all those who have missed to attatch somthing like alpha points or somthing like that to it. The idea can be fun, but then announche things like this atleast 24 hours befoor just popping the servers open and already closing them. That way most will see it and will be able to plan. Ive been following the project since it was announched and im just realy sad i missed it, but also realy sad if there now all of the sudden are also points involved that ive missed :(
But I must say i am realy suprised you already got an alpha test this fast and evrything. Thats incredible! Sure there are always buggs and stuff but to get a new game in 3d server ready and evrything in such a short time and then already make it look that good (from what ive seen from the pictures), Thats amazing! Keep up the good work! But also, plz anounche things like this like atleast 24 hours befoor it all happens in the future.

Lynx: @Hikari15
You use your Artix Entertainment Master account to log in (the same thing you log into to post comments on here!), however the server is down, so you won't be able to start playing yet.

@Dr. Krest
I agree with you on both the name and the tab feature (the addition to use enter to log in would be nice, too!)
