Window Slayer

Posted by on 71 comments

Video Game Studio CEO has an "Axe-ident"

"OMG! It is Artix... protect the Windows!" This video was posted on Saturday and is responsible for a lot of warm smiles and a good number of outright belly laughs. At the end of the month, at the official Artix Entertainment Panel at DragonCon 2013 I promise to tell the full story -- and if you are super good, I will share the missing footage :-)

Ooooh.. you read the full version of the post.

You deserve BONUS INFO!

So, there are two comments that keep appearing over and over again on YouTube. I would like to answer them here and would appriciate anyone who defended me should they be posted again. First, I hate waste and would not break a perfectly good window on purpose. It may not appear that way to some of you in the video -- but, if you watch the video again closely, there is missing footage. Careful editing is concealing a secret in the video. I was surprised nobody "pieced" it together yet. Second, it is really nice that you get a glimpse at the real me. Someone asked why I spent my time posting this instead of working on the games. I am sure they did not realize that this was posted on my day off It also gave me a great reason to log into AQWorlds and hang out with a bunch of awesome players . They really hopped in on the fun. If there is anything to be learned from this experience... it is: "If something stupid is likely to happen. Make sure you get it on video and post it to your friends."

Kazuma: It seemed pretty obvious to me...the window was transparent before but the one Adam smashed was semi-opaque. That said, Windowslayer...not a bad idea. Passive abilities: Broken Glass (Take 10% more damage) and Transparent Glaze (20% more chance to dodge).

JRVthatsME: While it does kinda look like it was intentional the fact that it is dangerous clearly proves that it wasn't. I Have had to make a broken window in a discount shop I used to work in safer after it was damaged in a wind storm and I know risky and unpredictable broken windows can be especially the bigger they are. I'm glad that you weren't hurt. On a lighter side I think you may have found a name for Artix's new look. I could just picture wearing Windows Slayer armour in an AQW event wher we go up against an evil Bill Gates (well maybe Gill Bates lol)who is trying to hack reality and turn it into a faulty version of windows 95 or something. Just for a laugh. Again I'm glad that you're not hurt and I hope there wasn't too much trouble or expense over it.

Zhing: Artix--that was pure awesomesauce. But I am sincerely glad you did not: A. Break the window on purpose or B. Truly break the window. So, another thing I have to be thankful to Artix Entertainment for :)

Sanjoko
Sanjoko: After taking Artix's advice I've watched the video again and paused it lots. If you look at 32s and 33s you'll see the view changes to behind him briefly and when it changes back the window is actually already broken just before he hits it. You don't notice though due to the changing angles, the sound effects and that it all happens so fast. I'd imagine they had the broken window and then thought of making this video but I can imagine Artix/Adam running around the office doing that anyway (such as Dage being dressed up). How did the window break in the first place?

DerpSonic: Ahh HA!!! I noticed that too after readig what he said. Aswell as that really breif cut from American Ninja Warrior.
BladeMaster
BladeMaster: You did a pretty good job at concealing the "evidence" of it being fake, but you could still figure out it wasn't authentic if you repetitively pause and stuffies :P You should make more of these videos, perhaps weekly; they're highly entertainging xD
