The name of AdventureQuest 3D!

Posted by on 50 comments

Thank you to whomever reminded me on Twitter that I said we were going to announce the name of AdventureQuest 3D in a *coughs*  live puppet show. LOL. I am a man of my word... so in between running our booth and panel at the MetroCon convention this weekend, we will be breaking out the sewing machine and sewing some sock puppets for what will potentially be the worst and most embarrasing idea in AE HISTORY! So, next week (probably Thursday night) join us LIVE in AdventureQuest Worlds where we will be streaming 30 minutes of sock puppet AQ3D naming chaos! We will answer questions about the upcoming game, give an update on the alpha (AQWorlds Members are invited to participate in the Alpha Tests),do random things... expect a lot of randomness. It is a sock puppet show after all.

AQ3D is about to get a name!

Cysero just messaged me, "I was just thinking that we don't do nearly enough puppetry around here!"

Schedule

  • Next Wednesday - Reddit AWA (3pm est)
  • Next Thursday - LIVE Puppet Show  (6pm est in-game in AQWorlds)
  • Next weekend - Chairman Platinum of EbilCorp may be on the  American Ninja Warrior TV show. (There is a chat log related to this that YOU NEED TO SEE... coming soon.)
Sorry Comments are now closed for this post.

Memory: Looks great! A character creation screen I assume? That model looks more realistic than ever! Most likely because of the pose, it looks "alive". But um... Does she have toes?

KJinx101: I say it doesn't seem fair only AQworlds members get to participate in all alpha. what about DragonFable and AdventureQuest members(like me) or people who upgrade in one game or more??? I hope this game has 1 time payment membership.

[P.S. Does staff reply to concerns or comments in little boxes like these? just wondering. Looks like ill have to toon into reddit.]

Belhunter: You should infest in professional puppets, they are fun to work with, but are extremely heavy to wield, and maybe some day they will make professional puppets of your characters, that would be awesome. the cheapest puppets start at $100 CDN, so about $97.5US.

Tiamaat: Alright puppets! Or, maybe muppets? Oooh, ooh, how about Sheri Lewis and Lamb Chops. Wait, is she even around anymore? Of course, a bunch of left-sock sock puppets voiced by Artix and the gang would be hilarious too. It would be kind of funny if there was an old punch and judy type thing going on too.

In any case I can't wait to see how crazy this turns out!

Loremaster
Loremaster: Omg I just thought of the best name -
Battle for Lore.
We could have a catchy advert like
"let the battle for lore begin"
and then showing awsome clips of like armes fightinh and stuff
also you could call it "BoL" then hope you like it:)

Btw if you have brought membership but are not sure if it is still up then do we still get to help in aplpha testing because I would so love to help and would buy membership when the game was up.

Allsaint: Its almost here guys, I can taste it ...... YUM!

I can't wait for it, and last minute errors are always expected, so lets hope the release goes very smoothly.

I always thought of AE's games of having the entire Hero's journey, an odyssey, so I can't wait what journey awaits us in AQ3D: (name title here), as for the puppet show, well umm... lol Gotta see that.

Lynx: @YuKahi and @LoremasterRocks123
I'm hoping what he means is anyone who was able to camp their name would be able to test Alpha. If not, it might go down Herosmash road, where Phase 1 (and 2?) are AQW members only, but Phase 3 will be to anyone who has a membership in any game. Who knows? Maybe Artix has a different way this time...

JRVthatsME: Can't believe that I didn't notice this before now. There's a building on what appears to be a floating landmass in the clouds. Looks like some kind of church or monastery I think. It might just be the way the clouds are passing over the mountains, but if it is an actual floating island then I'm really looking forward to exploring and learning about it in game.

Lynx: @purplemonster1

Hello!

To camp your name in AQ3D, you must first have upgraded in any of AE's games. Next, on the pre-registration page, you must sign in to your Artix Entertainment Master account (The one log in to rule them all!). Also, don't forget to link your game account with your Master account! Then, after you log in there, it will bring you to a screen where you get to select your name for AQ3D! (You can go back and change it any time during pre-registration).

Battle on, my friend!

Solaric
Solaric: Out of those names; I prefer "GrimsBane" But if you take ideas from the comments, I've a few ideas-
Neverfar (Sounds like a fairy tale XD)
Solarion (Sounds like a MechQuest thing)
Something humble, like Riverhollow or something.
I hope you like my ideas I generated in about 1 minute XD

Kantro17: It seems like the walking animation is still a little square shouldered movement, and there's an issue with the base meshes for other characters to where they end up missing clothes lol, and the guy characters are kinda chicken legged with proportions
