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

BattleGems gets Featured as a BEST NEW GAME!

Frankly speaking... you guys are freaking amazing!

Starting last night, Battle Gems, our brand new mobile game, was featured as a "Best New Game" in the Apple App Store. We are currently in slot #12 -- which is HUGE if you consider there are litterally millions and millions of games on the app store. The reviews from our long time players and from people who have never heard of us before have been overwhelmingly positive. Everyone seems to immediatley notice how much heart and effort we put into the game... even after playing just a few levels you can see the quality, humor and how surprisingly big the game is. We did not hold anything back making this for you... and you are not holding back helping us making Battle Gems one of the top games in mobile. Thank you!

BattleGems is best new game on the Apple App Store
BattleGems has a new website:

Android & Bugs Update

The team has been working around the clock the last few days on the iPod Touch 4th Gen crashing bug, and the rare, but equally frustrating Character Data wipe issue. Also, we fixed the error with Dracustien Frankula in the CastlePainya area. We have our fixes in testing now an we will be submitting the fixes to the Apple App store ASAP. Then, completing the port to Android is the next top priority. To all of you Android users, thank you for being so awesome and patient! There are A LOT of different screen sizes and a few "gotchas" porting to Android -- but once these apple bugs are done, we should be able to muscle our way through it. When it does come out for Android, it is going to be even more polished.


In case you have been missing them, here are the links!

BattleGems #42 - Pets

MegaCon 2014

If you happen to be going to the MegaCon convention in Orlando, Florida this Saturday... keep an eye out for the Battle Gems suits. The Gems and I will be running around the convention taking crazy and silly photos. I will be posting pictures for everyone through next week via the Battle Gems Facebook page -- give us a like and keep a watch on it!
