BeleenCookieContest2015 (1).jpg


Judged by the Creators of Cookie Clicker!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Cookie Contest! All of the entries looked so delicious we want to eat our monitors. We are excited that this years competition was judged by Orteil and Opti, the creators of the genre-defining idle game, Cookie Clicker! Here is basically how it went down...

Orteil: on a scale from Mr. Rogers to American Idol, how harsh and merciless should we be
Artix: Uh...
Orteil: no mercy, got it
Artix: O_O


When you think about it, it is pretty meta to have the creators of a cookie game judge a real life cookie contest based on another series of games. Here we go!

Happy New Year 2015 posted by Artix on

Every year, on the 1st day of the new year, I get up early, and come here to the lab. Everyone else finally has a day off. So I am alone here with my thoughts-- and those thoughts are focused on all of the game things we will build together in 2015. I strongly believe this year is going to be our best-- and equally our hardest. It would be safe to say the past two years were training for what we are going to do this year. Because this year Project: Omni (our ambitious and challenging plan to take our games to all devices) will finally spread its wings like phoenix, renewing the life of our existing and new games. Instead of trying rattle off the giant shotgun blast list of goals... I am just going to say the #1 thing on the list that is written on the paper in my hand-- This is the year, we launch AdventureQuest 3D (aka AQW3D). Can I count on you to join us and help make this crazy new game? Battle on!
