Design Notes

Rapid Fire Wednesday

Posted by on 21 comments

On ultra crazy development weeks, I take a walk around our Secret Underground Lab and then rapid post the most interesting things I hear to keep you in the loop!

  • Project Omni
    A bigger post won this will be coming tomorrow, but super short version: Prototype gameplay and the character customization features are complete! We are working on shrinking filesizes, artwork, and sound FX. The game still does not have a name... O_O.

  • AdventureQuest Worlds
    Everyone's favorite mmo is getting ready for a special series of Dage the Evil crafted releases which is being called the "June of Doom." To top it off, GRIMSKULL is coming to AdventureQuest Worlds with the most evil death trap filled dungeons ever created. But first... this friday, the Cross-Lore CHAOS WAR begins! Oh, this week is your last chance to get the 1 Year Package deal with the Jade Samurai set. It is being replaced with the new Warlord Raider set this Friday.
  • EpicDuel
    The in-game mail system has been a hit. The team is converting some passive skills into active ones this week and making progress on their upcoming "Dread War" which starts in June.
  • Oversoul
    This Friday, expect the release of the Light Element card series and 2 to 3 new characters!

  • DragonFable
    This Friday, Book 3 of DragonFable continues to the town of Ravenloss. You will have to go there on Friday to see what shops and quests are to be found within. (PLayers are still excited that Llast week, the game's max inventory increased to 110 slots. Almost double!)

  • MechQuest
    The finale is scheduled to take place this summer! The team has been working weeks ahead making sure all of the content is created so the finale takes place seemlessly over 4 exciting, mecha exploding, universe obliterating weeks -- it is going to be a finale no one will forget.

  • AdventureQuest 3D: Legend of Lore
    Everyone was pretty bummed with last week's alpha test being postponed. Although, news that we would be doubling the alpha points when the test DID continue seemed to make up for it. The new zone is still causing brower crashing problems, and the content team is working to rebuild the area. For the record, this was our first interior zone, and the sheer size and complexity of the zone seriously contributed to the issues. They are shrinking the enormous dungeon to be simple, BIG.

  • HeroMart
    Faith reordered more 10th Year Anniversay Shirts (we do get to celebrate all year, right!?) We are getting quotes on a MechQuest shirt to celebrate the finale (piece of history?) and... saving the best for last... we are getting 2,000 of the AdventureQuest Worlds Card Game Decks. They are scheduled to be delivered mid-june. We are  building a special "Everything in one Box" which will put the Card Game, and both expansion packs (and all in-game items) into a single box. Check out HeroMart.

Tonemaro: In the mirror realm, would Grimskull be Jollyfoot? He'd probably run an Explosive Ordinance Disposal agency...

PyzchoMaster: I can't wait until OverSoul gets quests and a storyline! Grinding for exp in PvE/PvP isn't fun! It is still a good game though :(

ben14715: There is a problem about the mirror realm in there artix would be the champion of good making it impossible for him to be engulfed by evil.

BartiriX: How are you supposed to make a horror MMO? Also, I don't think AE is into that kind of games. Theyre more of... action/adventure games (I think).

mcbshadow: I've got some ideas for the "Project Omni" mobile game name(THAT RHYMES:D), how's about "Acronia","Mini Quest","Grimwell","Chrotopio","Canthrosia","Quest Of Mini","Dwarf Quest"(lol),or "Tiny Worlds" btw just to let your team know, DUBSTEP IS AMAZING!(not skrillex though, I'm not a fan of him mostly other artists I know about 100 different artsists)

M4O: Ive deciced to step up to the challenge of filling the empty void that inhabits the area of the official title of Project Omni. My suggestions all follow the "....... quest" theme commonly used by AE games and I think it fits well:
"Mobile Quest", "Platform Quest", or "Motley Quest". All the titles allude to the mobility and versatility of the new game. Hope ya like it :D
