Artix vs Nulgath?

Posted by on 59 comments

An OverSoul video released!

Thank you to all of the players who have been linking me to this video which was posted on the OverSoul homepage. Is that... the Blinding Light of Destiny? It has been a while since we have heard anything from EbilCorp and their nefarious leader Chairman Platinum. But Nulgath's new game certainly seems to be making progress. If you guys find out anything else, please let me know!

AdventureQuest 3D Update

This morning, the team laid out a week-by-week plan to get to Beta. It is going to be a long and perilous road with MANY, MANY, MANY alpha tests in between. More on this coming tomorrow! In the meantime, I am making a giant list of all "Awesome Things."  (Examples: Dragons, Vampires, Time Travel, Undead, Cyborgs, etc.) Think movie themes, iconic monsters, and things that make you go "cooool!" Do you have anything to add? Post me AWESOME THINGS to add to the list on my Artix Twitter!

Sorry Comments are now closed for this post.

Kushamo: Awesome things for AQ3D? How about interactive mechanical systems (eg in a dungeon, you have to put weight on a scale for something to happen), jumping (I hate not being able to jump in games D: it should be illegal to not be able to jump), mountable pets, encrypted codes, balls of pure energy, that one guy at school last year who I only had two periods with but was really cool, a fair amount of customization, interaction with the background, awesome lists, wasd/arrow keys movement instead of clicking, and voice acting from Morgan Freeman to name a few.

Haha Me Gusta. Don't think they are going to use that but it's pretty cool. AE hasn't done a lot of aliens. I can think of They Might Be Giants from AQW, and some of those creeps on Warpforce, I forgot what they are called. But anyway, aliens would be pretty cool. But my advice is to hold onto them a little longer and suggest later. They don't really pay much attention to the comments posted here.

skyax117: You know how AE kinda jumped into AQW at the thought of an MMO and kinda didn't think it through (you know, then they had to do the PTR thingy). I kinda like how you're taking this slow and thinking things through before you design everything.

I'd like to weigh in on a suggestion here; the game being 3d and all means it's probably going to be extremely laggy and slow. So before all else, one must focus on making it fast paced
