Design Notes

3D, Sock Puppets and Goth Pinky Finger

+5pts for bizzare post title

Happy Monday friends! Thank you for checking in on us. The entire AdventureQuest 3D team is working on the new assets for the pre-registration (Specifically: Assets without the CRASH DOOM DESTROY feature!). Since we will be talking a lot about 3D game design stuff this week, I would like to let you in on my "darkest" secret. I have seriously been wanting to tell you this story for the past 3 weeks -- it is finally time. Due to a tragic (and equally embarrasing accident which may or may not be related to the included video) accident, my pinky fingernail was smashed. Not unlike Ash's hand from Evil Dead II, my pinky went bad. It is now completely black, goth... and quite possibly evil. I fear *gulps* that the goth pinky finger may try to play songs by The Cure or Voltaire on my iPod when I am not looking. Those of you who have smashed a fingernail know that it takes months to heal... so until then, if anything surprisingly dark happens in the new 3D game, or I make typos resulting from the right hand side of the keyboard, you know it is the undermining work of my goth Pinky Finger. Maybe we should make a timelapse video of it healing. (Wish we had started that a few weeks ago when I originally injured it.) 

The MegaCon convention in Orlando took place this past weekend. Fox news was there and our friend, Roam, who was the long haired swordsman from the "Heromart: Loot the Treasure Chest video", got interviewed and was on TV Friday night! In addition to seeing a lot of old friends who also attended (apparently I am easy to spot because I ALWAYS wear the same outfit) I got a MASSIVE dose of inspiration... went home, and spent the 34 hours writing a design document for a crazy random adventure generator. I really hope we are able to use it for the 3D game. I think I am going to do a little 2D prototype to see if I can make the pieces work.

POLL QUESTION

As you likely know, our new game's full title is going to be AdventureQuest 3D: <insert a cool name here>. We have not actually decided on the <insert a cool name here> part yet. But when we do... we need to announce it! Do you think we should do it via a sockpuppet show, broadcast live, to about 30,000 people in AQWorlds? Official Facebook Poll

P.S. Do you like undead slaying pomeranians?
