OverSoul: Beta Revolution

Oversoul's interface & combat engine has been rebuilt and we are kicking off the "Beta Revolution!" Check out Nulgath's posts on Http://OverSoul.Artix.com to see the improvements coming to the game. While I type this to you, Warlic is still merging the new code and interface while Nulgath is working on new Card Art. Having tested what is working so far I am really impressed with how much more animated, exciting and fun the game is now. The old card game interface was really confusing and hard to navigate.  The new interface is clean and easy. Honestly, it took me a little bit to get used to the ghostly hands holding the cards. But it really makes it feel like a card game. So now, I would be really upset if they went away. Tell me what you think after a day of playing.

AdventureQuest 3D: Alpha Test .004

AdventureQuest 3D is having its next Alpha Test tomorrow too! A growing number of skeletons have been found around our small alpha test town. The sky seems to have grown darker and the waterfall is now pouring blood. It might be red Kool-aid. Or Ketchup. Either way, you will have to find a quest giver in town and undertake their perilious mission to earn your next 250 Alpha Test Points!  (Note: This is a very small test to verify all of our changes are working.) The test will begin around noon and barring no major problems, will last for about 24 hours. I will post the "Play Button" which will turn red when the game is live here on the homepage of Artix.com first thing in the morning

Kylestien
Kylestien: I like the look of the new OS update from the picture... Except for the hands. I'm hoping those hands are a placeholder. I'm not AGAINST the idea of ghostly hands, but they need to look more...ghostly. As it is they remind me WAY too much of Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Colossus: Yay! I can't wait to play the new releases! Furthermore, I'm very glad the AE has made the decision to run the test for at least 24 hours to accommodate AlphaKnights from all over the world. I love how AE is responsive to comments from players like us and we often get a sense of satisfaction realizing that we have influenced the course of games that entertain millions around the globe. :D Can't wait!
