Cysero's Secrets

Do you dare face the Ancient Goose?

Yeah. You probably do. 

I mean, of course you do. Why else would you be here? Just cheering on your friends while they play the release? I don't think so. 

You want a piece of this goose. AND YOU'RE NOT ALONE! The Queen of All Monsters also wants a piece of him (three pieces, actually). 

My first special guest release for the Return Of The Living Devs was a lot of fun. It was a story I thought about for a while, and I think the AQW team did a fantastic job making the release come to life.

I think it surprised a lot of people because people expect zany, wacky fun from me, but It was dark and moody and very emotional and I'm so happy that so many of you played it and let the story do its job. 

For my second special guest release (of two), I really wanted to give you some of the Cysero that a lot of you expect to see. The story is dumb (but fun and has a few great surprises in it), and the gear is very nice, but the MAP is the real jewel here. I planned out each room, each twist and turn, each hidden exit, shortcut and hidden mouse-over.

Cysero is what's up.

I really tried to give you somewhere that was fun to run around. (of course J6 and Reens were the ones who had to build the map to my exacting standards and Ghost expertly animated some of my favorite cutscenes in all of AQW history for tonight, so they all have permission to hit me. Sorry, guys.)

Let's face it. There are only so many types of quests that you can go on before they all start feeling kind of similar... so, I wanted to give you a PLACE that fun to run around in. This way, if the quests start feeling like work, the map will always keep things interesting with a hidden treat in almost every room. 

Look carefully, dear player. If you want to find MY secrets... you're going to have to work for them.

What IS Cysero's Secret?

I'll Give You a Hint... It's Not Yogurt.

If you had ONE guess as to what Cysero's secret is... what do you think it could be? Tweet your guess to Cysero, Artix, and Alina, then find out for real in tomorrow night's release!

Before the Full Moon Rises...

The LunarMancer Needs Your Help!

The LunarMancer (no, we don't know his real name, he won't tell us...) needs someone to help him very, very badly. The villagers on the island of Luna Cove won't do it. When I asked, they just shook their heads, crossed their eyes, and stuck out their tongues. But if a certain Hero were to take a vacation to Luna Cove this weekend, we might discover why... and he might complete the spell that would help him gain the rest and respite he so badly needs! If that's enough of a Wednesday teaser for you. Stop here. Otherwise, read on!

There's just ONE. Little. Problem! As the moon moves through its phases, passing towards the full moon, lunarmancy gets stronger. And if your focus is not ABSOLUTELY PERFECT, spells and rituals are... apt to go awry. 

If you haven't checked your lunar calendar (or the night sky) lately, then you may have missed that it is ALMOST the full moon! And THAT means that the LunarMancer's power is ALMOST at full strength! This is both a good thing and a BAD thing - we're not quite sure WHAT will happen when (or IF) he completes the ritual. THAT is going to be up to you, Hero! 


Friday: The Fantastic LORE Limited Time Shop Arrives!

Starting this Friday, July 24th, find the Fantastic Lore shop in your game menu for until August 7th! Get Nulgath's "The Fiending" armor, helms, and maces, based on everyone's favorite Fantastic Four character, The Thing!


Get Up to 30% More Free Bonus ACs until Friday!

This Friday at 6PM server time, the free bonus amount and select packages will change! If you want to get the most bonus ACs (so you don't miss any of our awesome summer rare rewards like The Collector Class or the Ancient Grovebreaker Blade), now's the best time to do it!

Friday: The LunarMancer Arrives!

And an Old Enemy Considers a New Alliance!

When a powerful (maybe slightly moon-dazed) LunarMancer seeks revenge on those who've wronged him, he requires YOUR help to complete a complex ritual that will set everything to right. If you ever want to leave the lovely Luna Cove, located on the shores of Terra Lacuna Island (also the setting for last week's Titan Hollow release), you'll need to help him... if you can!

BUT WAIT! It's almost the full moon, and you know what THAT means on Lore... unforeseen accidents, shenanigans, and - oh yes, you'll be lycan what comes next... moon-based mayhem! Help the Lunarmancer complete his ritual, save the villagers, and discover what is in store for old enemies and new... friends(!?) this weekend!


Coming Next Week: Cysero's Secret

As Reens and Arklen build Laken's LunarMancer release (/cheer for another Laken story!), Memet and J6 are hard at work creating the assets that will be used for Cysero's release next week - the final installment of our Summer 2015 "Return of the Living Devs" event!

Prepare for Titan Hollow!

Take on the Living Dungeon Tonight!

Tonight! Friday night (est) is the opening of the living dungeon "Titan Hollow" in I was really grateful to be able to work on this for you with J6, Reens, Ghost and the rest of the AQWorlds team! Like my previous adventure, Dreadspace, it is reasonably sized for casual gamers to enjoy, but has lots of end game and bonus content to do for ultra dedicated gamers who want more. If I only get to tell you one thing about this new mini-story... is that it is beautifully creepy with a really fun feel good ending. When you see the quality of J6's art and Ghost's amazing animated cutscenes... you will see why we needed those extra 3 days!

Artix von Krieger's photo.


Without spoiling anything... there is one particular view when you are standing inside of the standing Titan's mouth, looking out... and you can see everything! It is amazing. I think I stared at that scene for hours while I was writing the pun filled quest descriptions. We really need to turn that into a house.

A little backstory. Originally, I was designing this dungeon to be am ultra evil Grimskull puzzle-dungeon... with a "Surprise! It is Grimskull!" reveal at some point. (Which I *STILL* will do one day in the future!) But for this particular summer release we all wanted something that everyone would actually enjoy. Because, um, there is something about dying in terrible and horrible ways... in every room.. multiple times... over and over... that not everyone enjoys. <_< So I carefully placed my evil Grimskull notebook back on the shelf... where it can sit generating nightmares until it is time. Instead,in this release I wanted to focus on the "Parkour of Video Game travel." That is... making getting from point A to point B really interesting. A living dungeon is the perfect place to do that! What started as quick little 5 second cutscenes turned into a pretty full blown production. We came up with he idea for the the end of the adventure while we were still working on it... which I REALLY think you are going to enjoy.

There are two things we did differently in Titan Hollow. First, is how we introduce the villain. As weird and simple as it seems when you play it... it is the first time we have EVER done that. It gives a very clear goal and motivation to get to the end of the dungeon too. Second, you can "re-run" this dungeon. Normally, you beat a quest chain and then farm the boss monster for Drops. In this dungeon, you will re-run the quests to fight the main boss for a single epic prize. To get another epic prize, you re-run a simplier version of the quests again. Of course, there are also some bonus big monster baddies that are there to farm for stuff too.

Release Checklist! Make sure you find/complete/watch:

  • BOTH run-throughs! Do NOT just complete the release once!
  • The merge shop that unlocks after you complete the first round of story quests
  • All 10 monster drop rewards
  • The special, HIDDEN "release" boss with arguably the most "epic drop" in the game
  • All 8 story cutscenes
  • The Titan BATTLE fight to the finish!!!!

Again, I really hope you enjoy this adventure. Take lots of screenshots!

P.S. Sorry for writing you a novel! It is 2am... after working on a release like this, I get super hyperactive. I probably will not be able to sleep until you play it. Thankfully we are mostly done now... almost everything is assembled!

Artix's Living Dungeon Attacks Friday

Construction of the Living Dungeon is Underway!

This week's installment of our Summer 2015 "Return of the Living Devs" event brings us another release from Artix - his Living Dungeon! Last week, we delayed this release in order to get enough time to build all of the completely new assets needed to create his vision... and let me tell you,  it truly takes a team to build a dungeon that attacks a hero!
living dungeon battle free rpg mmo
Thanks to J6's all-new background art, Ghost began animating the first of 7 new cutscenes last week. Yesterday, Reens, Arklen, and Artix sat down and went through the release frame-by-frame - going over what happens and when, which monsters go where, and what the story is surrounding these super-creepy, VERY smiley living-dead-tree-warrior dudes when you  - well... I will just leave you with THIS picture:

The Collector Returns!

The "Collector: Vindicator of They" and "Dage vs Nulgath War" Events Return!

Join us this week as we bring back TWO fan-favorite releases - "The Collector" and the "Dage vs Nulgath War" while the team focuses on building the assets for next week's Living Dungeon release from Artix! If you're just joining us, these two events will be all-new to you - for those of you who have been with us for a while, you'll find some new gear to quest for and relive old glory battles!

Thank you for supporting AQWorlds as we work to bring you amazing and insane summer releases! Normally, we do not bring back old events, but the last 3 weeks of releases have been pretty insane, and when you're on a weekly release schedule like we are, we have to keep the schedule pretty tight! 

In order to do justice to Artix's release next week, we delayed it, but to make sure you have battles to fight and rewards to earn this weekend, we've returned The Collector and the Dage vs Nulgath War! 

Nulgath's Terminator Gear

Starting tonight, you'll be able to battle through the Dage vs Nulgath War maps to earn the Legend-only Eradicator 9000 from Nulgath, or find the Archfiend Genisys armor set in your game menu! Battle the underworld monsters, rewatch the war's cutscenes, and then get ready for the return of...

The "Collector: Vindicator of They" Returns

Battle through space and time as your to defy The Collector - a being that wants to trap you in another dimension... where YOU are the most prized possession in his stash of epic rare Heroes! Your Great Destiny got you into this mess, but your epic battle skills and superior combat strategy are going to save you!

Because we couldn't get ahold of They Might be Giants to reuse their music and appearance, we've replaced them with Will and Fred of the Wyld Dragons (parodying Bill and Ted of the Wyld Stallions). 

NEW: The Collector Class

Starting this weekend, save Will and Fred and battle your way through the daily quests they offer to unlock the new Collector Class! This is a new, different version of the Vindicator of They Class, which released back in 2011. It has different art and slightly different skills - it's designed to be stronger in PvE, while VoT is stronger in PvP.

If you still have the original Vindicator of They Class, you get the Collector Class (and the Vindicator of They ARMOR) for FREE! That's our way of saying "thanks!" for staying with us for so long! If you do not have the Vindicator of They Class, you can still get the Collector Class - 

The non-member Collector Class will be sold for 2000 ACs in the Event Rares shop in your game menu OR you can earn it by stocking up 90 Tokens of Collection (using the exact same type of daily quest the original players did to get the Vindicator of They Class)! The rest of the set will be available in the Tokens of Collection Merge shop THIS Friday!

  • Collector Class - 2,000 ACs OR 90 Tokens of Vindication
  • Collector Helm - 25 Tokens of Vindication
  • Collector Cape - 45 Tokens of Vindication

Undead Assault: Past and Present

DragonFable's Geopetal Talks about AE's Coming Mobile Game

Hi, guys! Earlier this month, Geopetal, game lead for DragonFable (our single-player dragon-filled fantasy RPG), made a post on DF's Design Notes about Undead Assault, one of AE's in-development mobile games. If you like slaying the undead, mobile games, or dragons breathing fire, then read on!

Undead Assault: Origin Story

On October 26th, 2006, Artix Entertainment premiered its first ever animated short, Artix vs. The Undead!

You can even play through Artix vs. The Undead in DragonFable's Necropolis chain! The very first war in DragonFable was the Undead Assault. Artix, always fighting for the light, has even exorcized the three spirits of Frostval!

What we're saying is he really, really, really, really likes destroying undead creatures.

Coming soon, you'll be able to help your favorite paladin in his eternal quest to rid the world of the evil undead! The original Undead Assault minigame has been resurrected by Kraken and it'll be up to you to play as Artix himself and take out all the shambling skeletons, flying eyeballs, and other disturbed dead using your trusty axe... or maybe even a little dragon fire*!

Artix Entertainment Undead Assault

*Also, doesn't that dragon look super amazing?

The best part? You won't even need to drag around your desktop to help rid the world of the undead. You'll be able to up your undead-slaying game while on the move, whether you're using Android or Apple!

Friday: Return of the Special Events

The "Collector: Vindicator of They" and "Dage vs Nulgath War" Events Return!

Last week, we said we would be releasing Artix's Living Dungeon event this Friday. But when I checked in with Dage this morning, I found his chair filled by a skeleton. That was the first sign of trouble. When I got ahold of J6 and Ghost, they said that Artix's event is going to be INCREDIBLE!!! But it is also going to require way more new art than originally anticipated.

We do not want to rush this release, because what Artix has written sounds amazing. So after finding Dage the Evil, we surrounded Artix and persuaded him to delay the release until next week. (It really was not that hard; he wants this to be as excellent as we do.)

So instead, we are bringing back of AQWorlds most popular events: the "Collector: Vindicator of They" and "Dage vs Nulgath War"! These releases will bring back the old maps, cutscenes, and quests (including the super-bonus rep farming quests from the Collection map) but NOT any of the rare items from the previous releases (so do not worry, rare collectors)! 

Nulgath is creating a new Terminator Genisys-themed armor set, and Memet's crafting an all-new look for the Collector Class art! You'll be able to unlock the PvE-centric Collector Class for ACs or through a daily quest but IF you still have the original Vindicator of They Class, you'll get it for FREE!

This Weekend: Beleen's Chaos Incarnate

Save AQWorlds from Chaos Queen Beleen!

Beleen, Artix Entertainment's bubbliest, most positively-pink developer has discovered the sad, abandoned village of Drearia and vows to bring it back to life. But after accidentally stumbling Nulgath the ArchFiend, lord of the Oversoul and former ruler of the Underworld, her powers of randomness and cheer... mutate in the STRANGEST way possible!

Starting tonight, /join Drearia and battle your way through Beleen's re-envisioning of AQWorlds... cuter, pinker, and with MUCH more Chaos! If you don't want to battle through a pink world, we need YOU to stop her! 

Find the rare gear shop in your game menu, with new (unpink) items from Nulgath!* Then head into Beleen's adventure and begin the battle (plus, get some super-sweet monster drops, if you're lucky)!

* If you follow my Twitter feed, you know that I am absolutely crazy about the chibi nulgath! I could not stop turning it into more and more gear. Real Fiends go Chibi!

A Message from Beleen

Weeeeee! I just know you are going to love-love-LOVE this special… albeit CRAZY!... release that me and the AQWorlds team have spent 3 weeks developing. It was A LOT of work (requiring A LOT of caffeine), but it was totally worth the long hours and coffee-stained smile because I really wanted to make my Chaos Beleen storyline the most fun and memorable release in the game’s history.

…aaaand not to mention, I kinda wanted MY release to totally PWN Cysero’s and Artix’s events. Teehehhehee >:D

Artix scream pink paladin chaos queen beleen funnyBut! In order for that dream to come to fruition, I am going to need your help. I need YOU to join the #BeleenTeam and help spread the word of this weekend's Chaos Queen Beleen event!

Invite all your friends to come play tomorrow night with us, and if you happen to know someone who used to play AQWorlds, let them know that I designed this new release and I would love it if they came back and played AQW with me! Woohoo!!

Thanks so much for making my fantasy (…of forcing Artix to wear pink, LOL!) into reality, and I really hope you enjoy playing tomorrow’s Chaos Queen Beleen release alongside me, Artix, Nulgath, and 30000 of our closest friends!

Pink On and Battle On!

xoxo Beleen =D
