Creatures, Crypts & Chaos
AQWorlds is getting ready for "The Summer of Evil." The popular artist Nulgath will be featured in this week's artist shop starting wednesday. Then, in just a few eeeks the Summer of Evil will kick off with the first GRIMSKULL DUNGEON. I do not know if you have been listening to the rumors about Grimskull, but... his dungeons are evil, evil, evil, evil, evil... evil x 9999. No matter how deadly his first dungeon, "The Vault of Endless Doom" is, adventurers cannot pass up the opportunity to try to reach the bottom and obtain what is guarenteed to be "The most powerful weapon in the world." (With matching enchancement.) The weapon and most everything about the vault is free. The heavy focus on gameplay is part of AQWorld's commitment to "put the game back into the game."
There is a new alpha test scheduled for this Thursday. While the coders are working on project Omni, the AQ3D content team is going to preview some of the new areas that they have been working on. In this Thursday's test, players will enter the cathedral. We will leave the servers up as long as possible.
We are all in eager anticipation of the "End of the Universe." It is the finale of our giant robot battling game's main storyline. Since it was announced, the MechQuest team paused weekly releases and have been working on preparing the 4-part finale for the hard core fans. The final part is much bigger than the releases we normally make and requires help from the other teams. We expect "The End of the Universe" to begin at the start of summer... possibly in two weeks!!!
- Limited Print "Mirror Realm: Xing and Xang" available now at www.HeroMart.com
- AQWorlds Battle Cards - 150 decks to be available next week. (We had a lot of decks with battle damaged packaging.... so Faith took them all out of the packaging, built a special new box that will contain the all the cards from the original Card Game AND all the cards from both Booster packs -- including all in-game items.)
- It was hailing at the lab today... WHAT!? Since when does Florida have hail storms... and in the Summer!?
- Mia J. Park wrote a new song, "Us against the world." I REALLY like it... that is a link to ReverbNation where you can listen to it and her other stuff for free.
- As you know, I read and answer fan mail every week... I was thinking that maybe I should open and read it on camera this week -- and post it on YouTube. (My real life-self is a lot crazier than my game character, it might shock people.) What do you think?
