Hurricane Irma: AE Status Update
Artix Team + Lab: Safe and Secure
Hello all! Thank you (and everyone else in-game, on the forum, and on social media) who have sent us wishes of luck and good will as we prepare for Hurricane Irma's arrival. Hurricane Irma is a record-breaking, very serious storm BUT we are as safe and secure as possible.
Artix and I have checked in with the crew here in Florida -- everyone's right and tight and as prepared as can be. Not too many are evacuating/leaving, but the ones who are have good, safe places to go.The lab's secure, we've all got supplies.
We sent people home yesterday to telecommute and to conserve gas, since there are major shortages in the area. Then Artix, Rolith, and I made sure the Lab was locked up tight today.
See Artix's video of the empty-but-secure lab here!
We will get through this, and we'll do everything we can to make sure our family, friends, neighbors, and homes get through as safely as possible. If you know of anyone affected by the storm, or who has been affected by any of the recent natural disaster/emergencies and are able to help them out, be a real-life Hero and lend a hand where you can.
We are still planning to release -- AQWorlds' update will go out tonight thanks to Reens (she runs our weekly releases and lives in Canada). AQ3D's update went out yesterday.
We here are like the post office - neither rain, nor hail, nor sleet, nor snow can keep us from Battling On! (However, you may experience a delay in getting replies from Player Support if power goes out in any major way.)
