New Mobile Game Announced!

A free single-player arcade-survival game coming soon

The creative minds behind the PvP MMO EpicDuel have teased about a "big, exciting announcement" for the past few weeks. But today is a very special day, because that well-kept secret is finally being revealed…  

BioBeasts_New_Arcade_Mobile_Game

Titan, Nightwraith, Charfade and Rabblefroth have been secretly developing a new mobile game entitled “BioBeasts” while also working on EpicDuel (woah, they must drink A LOT of coffee!). Today we’re excited to showcase the progress the EpicDuel team has made so far!

BioBeasts_Free_Mobile_Single_Player_Offline_Arcade_Survival_Sci_Fi_Beasts_Robots_Game_Charfade_beast_concepts

BioBeasts Bio

BioBeasts will be a free, single-player arcade-survival game for mobile devices (Android and iOS) where you control a mutating beast fighting to escape from a robot-controlled laboratory. You will control a variety of beasts as they try to escape from a lab run by the sadistic Alydriah. Defend yourself against a horde of robot guards, laboratory defenses, and hulking bosses as you claw, bite, blast, and bash your way to freedom! Unlock new beasts with special powers and obtain potent mutations to experiment with as the game progresses.

The team is already well into development and have a number of screenshots posted on their shiny new website: BioBeasts.Artix.com! Check it out and peruse the BioBeasts FAQ.

BioBeasts_Free_Mobile_Single_Player_Offline_Arcade_Survival_Sci_Fi_Beasts_Robots_Game_Dev_Workspace

Be sure to post your questions and suggestions on the new site! The team will respond to your questions in a post on Friday (April 17). You can also follow all the exciting new announcements for BioBeasts on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

Bring on the BioBeasts!

We Love You!

Now’s the chance to share your love, too!

Hiya, hero! As you are reading this, the AQW team and I are excitedly planning for this upcoming Friday release in AdventureQuest Worlds. Can you believe that our small, indie game company can produce brand new game releases every single week—ever since AQW first launched in 2008?!

That’s over 300 new game releases in just one game!!

beleen loves you

You may not know this… but AQW is ENTIRELY supported by players like YOU! We have no financial backers, no stockholders, and no big boys to help us create games for you. There is NO WAY we could possibly keep the game running without YOU, and we cannot thank you enough! *super hugs!*

Everyone on the AQW team is honored to have such heroic heroes (…and vile villains) helping support the game that we all know and love. We could not have made it this far without the support of our AdventureCoins buyers and upgraded Legends, and they will always have a special place in our hearts. Right next to frappichinos and bacon. AND YOU KNOW that’s saying A LOT! #SoMuchLove

bacon and frappichino yum new starbucks recipe idea maybe

You know that we love AdventureQuest Worlds. And we know that you know that you love AdventureQuest Worlds, too. So we want the whole world to know why you love AQ Worlds!

Within 1-2 sentences, can you tell us why you love AdventureQuest Worlds? Share your love here and have a chance to see your quote on a new chapter in Lorepedia, appropriately named Testimonials!  

On behalf of the entire AdventureQuest Worlds team and all Artix Entertainment staff, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and continuing our adventures alongside you!

Battle on!

Contest Rules (follow these EXACTLY, or your entry WILL BE disqualified!)

This is the most important part of the whole contest. Read all the rules below BEFORE entering your DRAGONS Fan Art submission.

Follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.

1.     Create AdventureQuest DRAGONS Fan Art! You can Draw, Paint, Flash, Photoshop, 3D Print, Sculpt, Bake/Decorate, Comic-strip, Cosplay, or create a Stuffed Animal/Plushie of anything relating to AQ DRAGONS. Get creative here, folks!

IMPORTANT: Do NOT submit random drawings of random dragons. This contest is ONLY wanting fan art of the Dragons found within the mobile game, AdventureQuest DRAGONS.   

2.     Your AQ DRAGONS Fan Art MUST BE created by YOU. And only YOU. No teaming up with friends, sorry.

3.     DO NOT trace or steal ANY artwork! If your fan art is stolen from any Artix game, or traced over preexisting DRAGONS art work, or directly copied from another dragon-related photo online, YOU WILL BE disqualified.

4.     Your AQ DRAGONS Fan Art entry MUST include your AQW Character Name somewhere on the picture. No name = no chance at winning, and the possibility of someone else stealing your hard work. Please write/sign your AQW Character Name legibly so we can actually read it =) Also: DO NOT CHANGE your AQW Character name during the contest and contest judging! 

5.     Put the date on your entry so no one tries to steal your Fan Art during future contests (because you know some sneaky scoundrel will try)!

6.     Type your AQWorlds Character Name in your Tweet BEFORE submitting. That way, if you win, I can easily copy your Character Name for faster prize awarding and no mistakes.

7.     Include hashtag #DRAGONS in your Tweet so that way the whole world can see your awesome art, too!

8.     After following ALL THE RULES above, submit your DRAGONS Fan Art entry to www.twitter.com/AQWcontest

Preparing for Victory: The Checklist

Check off each item below before submitting your entry to ensure your chance at winning!

  • AdventureQuest DRAGONS Fan Art created by you

  • The date on your entry
  • Type your AQW Character name in your Tweet to @AQWcontest
  • Include hashtag #DRAGONS in your Tweet to @AQWcontest

New Flash Player Update: 17.0.0

How to update Flash Player and keep it up to date!

Adobe Flash Player upgraded to level 17 (this comes after last month's update to 16.9). And this has caused some problems for some online games that use the Flash Player plugin—like, for example, all Artix Entertainment games!

Gjappy-important-Flash-Player-Update-how-to-artix-entertainment.png

From our end, we think we have solved most of the issues, so now it’s our turn to help YOU get rid of some your Flash bugs if you have them!

What is the Adobe Flash Player?

The Flash Player is a plug-in that is required to play all of our games, and is automatically ‘plugged in’ to your browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.). Adobe Flash Player makes our games run, displays the flashy animations, makes your shiny Blade of Awe glow bright, and plays all the epic cutscenes!

Which version of Flash Player do I have?

First of all, you might need to know which version of Flash Player you have on your browser. To find that out, follow these easy steps:

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Go to www.aq.com/play-now
  3. Right click somewhere near the ‘Login’ button.
  4. In the menu that then opens, you need to READ the last line, which says something like “information about Flash Player 17.0.0.305…”
  5. IF it DOES NOT say “Information about Flash Player 17.0.0.…” and gives another number, then you need to upgrade your Flash Player to the latest version.

How to upgrade Flash Player to the latest Version?

If you do not have the latest version of Flash Player, you‘re in trouble….  O__O ….. because older versions of the Flash Player will cause your game will lag, disconnect, have sluggish animations, etc. So it is ALWAYS better to upgrade. Here is how to upgrade your Flash Player if you do not have the latest version:

  1. Open your browser
  2. Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
    • If you have an older version of Flash Player, the page will automatically tell you to upgrade it.
  3. Click the link “Download the Adobe® Flash® Player system plug-in
  4. Click “Install now” to download the newest version and install it.
  5. Follow the instructions given by the program.
  6. Restart your browser and it should be working fine now!

This method should work for any browser you use. Some browsers, like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, automatically update Flash Player when a new version is out. Other browsers do not and then you will have to update Flash manually.

I want Flash to automatically update!

When you update your Flash Player, there is an option in the installation process where you can check the box to make Flash Player update automatically, like in the picture.

Adobe-Flash-Player-preference-installer

However, you may not know if you enabled that for your computer. Or that you are sure your computer has not enabled automatically updating Flash Player. In that case you can still enable it in this way:

  1. Go to www.aq.com/play-now
  2. Right click near the “login” button.
  3. Click “General Settings” in the dropdown that opens.
  4. Go to the tab “Advanced Options” in the Settings Manager that opens.
  5. Click on the button “Change Update Settings”, this might require administrator rights.
  6. Check the bullet/box of “Allow Adobe to install updates”
  7. Additionally you can click “Check now” to see if there are any updates for Flash Player.
  8. Close the window and you should be fine.

I am using Google Chrome and it does not work like that!

Oh yes, Google Chrome acts a bit weird in that case. Chrome usually updates Flash automatically, unless something (or someone!) disabled it. Here’s how it works for Google Chrome:

  1. Go to www.aq.com/play-now
  2. Right click near the “log in” button.
  3. Click “General Settings” in the dropdown that opens.
  4. The browser will bolt you to a help page of Adobe in a new tab.
  5. Scroll down till you see a link called “Panel General Notification Options” and click it.
  6. Set “Check on updates” in the screen that follows on 14 or 7 days, and check the box “Warn me about new updates”
  7. Close the tab and it should be set now.

What if it still does not work right?

Curse technology!! It could be that your computer just refuses to update the Flash Player, or that it keeps messing up because of conflicting versions.

question-marks.png

In that case, it is better to entirely remove Flash Player and re-install it. To remove Flash Player, it’s best to do that via your computer’s configuration panel. (Note: this might differ per Operating System)

  1. So go to “Start”
  2. Open the configuration panel.
  3. Go to “Programs and Software”
  4. Search for “Adobe Flash Player” (there might show multiple of them)
  5. Right click them, and select “uninstall/delete”
  6. If you had more “Adobe Flash Players” showing in the list, uninstall these too.
  7. Then open your browser and go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
  8. Click the link “Download the Adobe® Flash® Player system plug-in
  9. Click “Install now” to download the newest version and install it.
  10. Follow the instructions given by the program.
  11. Restart your browser and it should be working fine now!

Still having troubles after? Then you might want to check if your Firewall or Security programs are not blocking it. Programs like AVG could still be blocking it. Quick options to change that would be:Gjappy-moglin-explains-flash-player-update

  1. Open the AVG panel
  2. Go to Firewall
  3. Go to Options
  4. Go to the tab Applications
  5. Make sure “Adobe Flash Player” is on the list of allowed applications.
  6. If it’s not, add it manually.

This is all we can teach you about Flash Player—a tricky but very good plugin that all our games run and live on. If you have additional questions, feel free to comment below and we will try our best to help you out! Please only write our Player Support team if there is a serious and/or complicated problem.

Thank you, Gjappy!!

When you see Gjappy in game, be sure to give him lots of /cheers for helping US help YOU! We could not have done this without his help, and we cannot thank him enough. So if you want to share your love, be sure to thank him on Gjappy’s Facebook and on Gjappy’s Twitter!

Valentine’s Day Presents

Fellow AQW Player Submeobi Sends Lots of Love… and Lots of Pink!

Ok ok ok… I know Valentine’s Day is, like, 10 days away… but when I saw THIS

beleen-pink-box-from-mmo-player-submeobi-valentines-day-gift.jpg

waiting for me when I walked into the Secret Underground Lab this morning, I knew it to be a Submeobi delivery, and had no choice but to open it right then and there =) 

But first, let me take a #selfie. Or like 20.

1-Beleen-in-real-life-valentines-day-gift-box-adventure-quest-worlds.jpg

2-beleen-submeobi-valentines-day-card-and-letter-how-sweet.jpg

beleen-pink-teddy-bear-stuffed-animals-puppet.jpg
Aww, a fuzzy wuzzy pink teddy bear and a bear puppet thingie! And, correct me if I'm wrong, but Diozz says that I can use it in the bathtub? 
beleen-diozz-in-real-life-fake-lips-funny-adventure-quest-worlds.jpg
Ah yes, as you can see, Diozz has a face you can trust. These pink kissy lips / lollypops have reduced office productivity by 37%. Thanks Submeobi! =D
beleen-in-real-life-pink-fuzzy-plushies-stuffed-animals-hedgehog.jpg
Memet is going to be soooo jealous when she sees that pink fluffy hedgehog! And... I am not sure what that other pink fuzzy thing is... but it's got crazy wacky hair, so I tried to make mine equally crazy. But, alas... I'm just crazy =p
final-beleen-in-real-life-all-valentines-day-present-from-mmo-player-submeobi.jpg
Yaaaay! I am covered from head to toe (erm... bear toes?) in pink awesomeness!!

All of these presents are so super sweet—thank you so much Subemobi!

And, since Valentine’s Day is next week, I’m wondering what kind of Seasonal Rare Items that YOU would like to unwrap in AdventureQuest Worlds?

Let me know on my Twitter what items you would like to see during next week’s Valentine’s Day event!

Best Way to Cure a Cold?

The Kind-Hearted Komarci97 Knows How!

Hiya, heroes! If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know that I’ve been pretty sick the past few days >…<

beleen in real life sick design notes

Being sick totally sucks, and it’s hard to stay upbeat when you’re feeling under the weather.  But when I got into the lab this morning, I found this envelope sitting on my desk. Cue instant smile!

And look what was inside the envelope: a bright shiny pink card, which reads Boldog Születésnapot!

beleen opens birthday card

That means “Happy Birthday!” in Hungarian. Fellow AQWorlds player Komarci97, who hails from Hungary, wrote a super sweet letter, too! Awwww <3

Beleen letter from player komarci97

And… OMG… there’s earrings in the card! And they’re not just normal earrings—they are decorated with a special Hungarian Kalocsa folk pattern.

Kalocsa is one of the most beautiful Hungarian towns with a great folk art history! And Komarci97 shared its beauty with me!!!

Thank you SO MUCH Komarci97 for making me feel SO MUCH better and feel SO beautiful despite me being SO sick! 

And this is why I love being part of AdventureQuest Worlds. Everyone who plays AQWorlds is my family, and no matter where you hail from—be it Hungary like Komarci97, or Brazil like Tendou, or anywhere else in the world—I couldn’t be more happy to call you all my brothers and sisters ^___^

Kindness is the best remedy to quell my cold, and I cannot thank you all enough for being my on-call doctors. And super special thank you to Dr. Komarci97 for mailing me my much needed medicine =)

Stay Healthy my loves, and Battle On!

xoxo Beleen! =D

Unwrapping Holiday Cheer

Fellow AQW player Submeobi sent me pink presents!

Hiya heroes! Today is a very special… and very PINK… day! Our fellow AQW player and dear friend, Submeobi, sent this HUGE PINK BOX to the Secret Underground Lab. Artix fled the scene before I unwrapped all this awesomeness…  MEGA PHOTO COLLAGE below!

Oh Submeobi, you always bring me so much joy AND bring me the best gifts ever! You never cease to amaze me, and your sweet birthday card and warm holiday wishes (plus cozy Santa hats) have made this the greatest December to remember! Thank you. Thank you! THANK YOU!!!!

And this is why I love everyone here at Artix Entertainment—and that includes players like you, too! We are all one big happy family, and I couldn’t ask for more love and merriment from the best extended family known to mankind. Thank you Submeobi for showering me with so much pink and making Artix’s eyes bleed rainbows—that is perhaps the greatest gift of all >:D

And thank YOU for being a part of the Artix Entertainment family <3 We could not have achieved all of this without the support from our magnificent Members and devoted AdventureCoins buyers, and everyone here at the Secret Underground Lab is blessed to have you by our side. You guys and gals are amazing. True story.

On behalf of the AdventureQuest Worlds team, we wish you sincere holiday wishes and look forward to battling alongside you into the New Year 2015!

Stay warm. Stay pink. Stay positive. And stay epic, my lovely heroes!

Battle ON!
