Flash Player is Going Away... But We've Got You Covered

The grim reaper is coming for Flash... but that's OK, we future proofed our web-based games! Using the Artix Games Launcher removes the need for a browser or the Flash Plugin.

And starting today, you'll see a new log in screen for each of our regularly-updated Flash games encouraging you to download and log in and play using the Artix Launcher.*

Plus, we've added a character page badge for all of the AdventureQuest Worlds heroes who've downloaded and are using the Artix Games Launcher... as an extra reward for embracing the future!


  • AdventureQuest Worlds
  • EpicDuel
  • AdventureQuest
  • DragonFable
  • MechQuest
  • Oversoul
  • AdventureQuest 3D (Sorta - the button will open the game in STEAM)
  • IdleQuest


You can download the Artix Games Launcher on your PC or Mac computer. The Launcher should also work for most newer Linux distros (64-bit) that have Applemage support such as Ubuntu 18.04+, Manjaro and Pop_OS.

Artix Launcher Reviews

"Considering how Flash Player is going away soon, there is no better way to play some of the best flash games on the internet than with Artix Game Launcher." -

"I am so ready for this Launcher Transition. I've already uninstalled Flash Player. And I've for long played AQWorlds and DragonFable on launcher anyways. This just ensures that we get to play our beloved childhood memories for YEARS to come!" - AQW player, Valoth Dissidia

Artix Launcher FAQ

What is the Artix Games Launcher?
The Artix Games Launcher is a downloadable client that lets you log in and play our Flash browser games straight from your desktop computer.

Is the Artix Games Launcher safe?
You bet! All downloads from any official Artix Entertainment game or website are safe and will not give your computer or network viruses.

How do I run the Launcher on Linux?
If you are running Linux, you may have to make the .applmage executable depending on what file manager you are using. In most cases, simply right click -> properties -> permissions -> check allow executing or in the terminal: chmod +x ./Artix_Games_Launcher-x86_64.AppImage.

Does the Launcher work on Chromebooks?
Artix Entertainment does not have an official ChromeOS version of the Artix Games Launcher for use on Chromebooks. Chromebooks have an option to run Linux alongside ChromeOS using a tool called "Crouton." Here is a guide for now to install Linux on your Chromebook. Once you've installed Linux on your Chromebook, you can download the Linux version of the Artix Games Launcher on your device.

What about other Artix Games?
Our first cross platform game is AdventureQuest 3D. This game can be played on iOS/Android devices and via Steam.

HeroSmash will not be playable via the Artix Games Launcher. We will leave the game online and available for heroes with existing accounts for as long as the internet allows. 

Our mobile games are AdventureQuest: BattleGemsAdventureQuest: DragonsAdventureQuest: Undead Assault and BioBeasts. These games can be played on iOS/Android devices and BattleGems can also be played on Kindle devices.

Will you convert your Flash Games to Mobile?
We would like to convert all our most popular older Flash games to mobile or create new versions of them. The Omni team is currently working on converting AdventureQuest Worlds to its next version, AQW Mobile, which will be playable on mobile devices, your computer, and maybe more! 

* If you are a fan of the classic log in screens, never fear. We've included a link to them, and will leave them up as long as we are able... or until the internet forces us to change plans.
