Quest Unlocked: Submit Screenshots of AE Games!

Hey guys! I am making a post for Gjappy, who is super-excited to announce an all-new screenshot contest!

Gjappy the the Archangel Avatar Ambassador here - Greetings and blessings to you, adventurers! As we start off the new year, Artix Entertainment wants to venture into new adventures! 


Galanoth, Alina, and I assembled in the Guardian Tower meeting room after realizing that more adventurers like you know about our awesome games and prosperous worlds! 

But when Galanoth saw the "Emergency DragonSlayer Signal" and Alina had to rush off to put out a lab fire, it was up to me to assemble the /party and head into the Dungeon of Instagram.


And for that... I need YOU!

Our mission: to get the best, most action-packed screenshots from any (and all) of our games so they can be posted on Instagram! 

Submission Guidelines

Submit up to 2 screenshots from any of our games, including: 

  • AdventureQuest 3D
  • Any of our mobile games: BioBeasts, BattleGems, Undead Assault, AQ:Dragons
  • AdventureQuest Worlds
  • AdventureQuest, DragonFable, EpicDuel
  • ... ANY game Artix Entertainment ever made is eligible!

The deadline to enter is February 3, 2016.  Send your screenshots as an attachment or link to: Winning entries will be posted on the Artix Entertainment Instagram for all to see!


Screenshots should not be edited, just a straight, unaltered picture from the game. Winning entries will be posted on the Artix Entertainment Instagram for all to see!

Minimize your in-game chat. 

Do not crop your screenshot - send an image of your full game screen in the browser window.

In battlescenes, try to show class skills or monster attacks going off.

If you're taking a cutscene screenshot, appearance counts (so equip your best gear!)

Custom Avatar Rewards

Winners will receive a custom avatar made from AQWorlds art, ready to upload and use on your social media accounts! There will be winners in each game category and, as always, we will reward those entries we like the best or think are super-awesomely-cool!

How to Take a Screenshot

Some of our fellow adventurers who regularly play on their evil toasters, upgraded fridges, phones or tablets might not know how to make screenshots. Don't worry, we've got you covered! Check out my guide on how to take screenshots! or watch Cysero's "how to screenshot" video!


When I was still a noob (O_o) acolyte-angel in AQWorlds I made lots and lots of screenshots of my epic adventures in-game with my friends. I collected around 1.500 screenshots from just playing, meeting people, battling monsters and cool (rare) events! I could write a pretty lore of that in pictures. If YOU have a collection of screenshots, too, then post them on Instagram so we can all see! 

If you would like to see more guides? Let me know in the comments section below!


I love making avatars (you can see some of them on the staff pages and Lorepedia)... but now I want to branch out and make them for ALL of you to enjoy! Though the screenshot contest winners will get customized avatars, there are a lot more places in the community where we can add in updated avatars, like the official forum and!

You can only choose 26 avatars on (via this page) and there are mostly AQ classic-related. So why don’t we update it and add at least 10 more avatars from each game?

Let me know on Twitter or in the comments which ones you would like to see added!

PS: Lastly I wanted to say THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH for backing the AQ3D Kickstarter and DOUBLING our goal!! Our Kickstarter backers can also now reap their rewards in AQWorlds! Read here how! AND we are making progress! And we are currently testing pre-beta for members and Kickstarter backers! Just go to to play and test!
