The Play by Play for the Cruxshadows Halloween Event!

Greetings friends! HALOWEEN WEEKEND had begun!I live updated this news post as we counted down to the awesome new special event thsat is happening now starring The Cruxshadows! If you enjoy the music, be sure to give the band's official Cruxshadows Facebook Page a like.

The Cruxshadows AQWorlds Halloween Event


11:59pm - Rebooted a second time to fix the "Act 1 Button"

10:55pm - Servers restarting for event release! The game servers will be down for about 5 minutes while the update is applied and the servers are restarted. During this time please check out the Cruxshadows Facebook and Twitter. Also, this is a good time to get the just release pre-order of the new 2016 AE calendar at www.HeroMart.com

10:18pm - I just got a message from Ghost! "Please give me 10 more minutes. for flashy explody things and soundFX!" Can we do it?

9:55pm - "This is your Captain speaking. Flight attendants please make sure all players have their weapons and spell books stowed, and their seats are in their upright positions. This is a final boarding check before take off."

9:30pm - To thank you for your amazing patience as we wait for showtime, we added a few new Cruxshadows music videos to the Skytheater for you! Including "just released" footage from this year's DragonCon performance.

8:45pm - We are on schedule for a 10pm release. The final cutscene is being finished as you read this and testing is already underway. Cannot wait to join you in the release tonight!

8:15pm - The Skytheater is available! The servers just came back online, and you are hereby invited to join us aboard the airship while we hang out and wait for the main event to begin. I will start broadcasting

7:30pm - Rogue is logged in his account "Rogue Cruxshadows" for the first time to join us in hanging out and then playing the event. If you see him, be sure to say hi!

Cruxshadows waiting area

7:00pm - The Skytheater is available! The servers just came back online, and you are hereby invited to join us aboard the airship while we hang out and wait for the main event to begin. I will start broadcasting in game too as well as here to keep you up to date with our progress. There is nothing like playing a game as it is LITERALLY being built under your feet as you play it.

6:59pm - Just got a call from Rogue!

6:50pm - SERVERS RESTARTING to launch the pre-release waiting area for tonight's special Halloween Special Event with the CruxShadows!

6:30pm - UPDATE! The pre-event area "The Skytheater" will be going live in 30 minutes... at 7pm EST. We caught a few last minute bugs, and made some optimizations so more players could join per room. The next news update should be an all aboard call for the Skytheater! There is something magical about having a flying concert. Especially when you add a touch of steampunk tech.

6:10pm - Oh wow... SURPRISE!? The 2016 AE Calendars just became available for pre-order on www.HeroMart.com! There are two versions. Both include this year's epic new "Infinity Knight" class. The Collector's edition is signed and includes an exclusive dage art mini-poster of the Calendar's cover art.

6:00pm - The pre-event area is just about ready. The Skytheater with music videos and the Updated Halloween Rares Shop are going live shorting.... hold on to your helms.

5:00pm - It is almost 6pm! We are prepping the (pre-)event lobby for release. You will be able to board the airship known as the Skytheater, hang out with players, and watch some Cruxshadows music videos while waiting for topnight's brand new event to officially start.

4:20pm - This just in. Arklen is back at his computer! It turned out he took a friend to the ER. The friend is fine(-ish) and A-Ok. Arklen is already back working on cutscenes for tonight's special release with Ghost. Talking about which... Cutscene #4 is *almost* ready for testing. Which means we only have one cutscene left to finish now. Meanwhile, Alina and I are doing a walkthrough of the quests. Keep an eye for my next update... veteran AQWords players already know... this is when things start breaking, exploading, and going berserk. O_O

4:00pm - Complete tonight's special event and you will unlock the "Cruxshadow Defender" badge for your character page and book of lore. Of course, if you check the badge in your book... you will find it also gives you a magical sword, "The Khopesh of Dreams." It has a special bonus against the undead. This bonus starts off very low, but you can level the sword up, increasing the undead bonus, by fusing it with items you get for defeating tonight's all new boss monster.

Khopesh of Dreams
Complete tonight's special event to get the "Cruxshadows Defender" badge and unlock the Khopesh of Dreams (Features bonus vs undead that you can level up with Boss Monster drops.)

3:30pm - It would not be a worthy special event if at least one AE team member did not end up in the hospital. Animator/Coder Arklen had an emergency trip to the ER. We are getting details now.

3:00pm - For this special event, Yorumi coded a special minigame. Story time! The last Cruxshadows concert I was at was AMAZING. An audience of 5,000+ super energized fans at DragonCon moving and singing along to the songs. During the concert, I saw Rogue, the lead singer, during the song Winterbown making a motion like he was shooting a bow. In live performances, he has these cool lights in his hands and it makes a crazy effet. I thought, OH MAN, if we ever got them to do an in-game event with us, we could let everyone play as him and shoot down shadow creatures with arrows of pure light. considering how long ago that was... the fact that this is actually happening is crazy!


2:30pm - Songs featured in tonight's release include: Winter Born, Valkyrie, Immortal, And I Believe, and I snuck in the intro segment to Monster (which I LOVE SO FREAKING MUCH!) ...without proper permission... so, SHHHH. Ok? Rogue, the lead singer of the Cruxshadows has been so amazing to work with. During our initial brainstorm session he actually came up with next year's Mogloween event. People who just radiate creativity are inspiring and fun. It is no surprise our community is a magnet for all of us like-minded creative types.

The Cruxshadows - As the Dark Against My Halo

Most of the songs in tonight's event are from the Cruxshadow's most recent album, "As the Dark Against My Halo" (iTunes link to album.)

2:00pm -This just in! Ghost completed Cutscene #3 which is the BIG ONE. Arklen is helping with the SoundFX and scoring. The mini-game is officially complete! It looks like we will release the pre-event "event lobby" around 6pm and the full adventure will go live 8-9pm EST. 

1:30pm -Also tonight, Evolved PumpkinLord class will be going live! To get you in the mood for Halloween craziness we made you a high red PumpkinLord Wallpaper for your PC and here is a wallpaper formatted for your phone.

BONUS: Faith dressed up as "Corporate Gravelyn" today... then Artix found the slow mode setting on his camera. Slo-mo Gravelyn Awesomesauce

1:00pm - Airships... Pyramids... awesome music. The cutscenes are the hardest part of this release to create. Our incredible animator, Ghost, is going all out and full speed. If only we could get Star Labs to do that large hydron collider accident and give him Flash like speed at making... Flash animations. He is currently on cutscene 4/7. One of them involves A LOT OF EXPLOSIONS. Wish ghost luck... he is going to need it! 

Airship explosions

12:30pm - This is Halloween weekend, be sure to dress up in costume for this event. (In-game and maybe real life too.) What will you be wearing? Take some screenshots and share with me on Twitter or Facebook. Meanwhile, I will hunt down some sneak peak screenshots from the upcoming event and also some real life pictures of the team here.... a lot of people dressed up!

NOON - The entire team is online! (Of course, we have been working through the night on this event, so technicually... we are just still here.) Here we go!
