10th Anniversary

Posted by on 104 comments

Play-by-Play

Tonight, at 6pm our 10th anniversary event will begin in ALL of our major games. Join me here, as I give you the play-by-by, a live news feed of the last minute craziness as the team prepares to launch the event.

ArtixAnniversaryEvent-450.png

9:30am Secret Underground Lab online.
Servers online...
Backups online...
Elevator online...
All systems check. 100%
9:35am Artix reporting for duty!
Thyton reporting for duty!
Yergen reporting for... (Hah hah, he said dooty.)
9:45am Thank you to everyone posting anniversary/birthday wishes to the game network on Twitter. Words cannot express how heartwarming it is to see your encouraging words. Especially since we are doing something completely new for our special event. Doing new things is always scary... but you have always had our backs. Thank you for being part of this and for supporting us!!!
10:00am A team members girlfriend baked us banana bread this morning. But it was not cooked. I realized this after eating a BIG bite of it. It is still in my mouth. WHAT SHOULD I DO!?
10:30am "Alina checking in!"
"Samba here!"
"Korin... erm.. here... wait, this isn't my bed...."
"Dage in the house."
10:31am The judging of the AdventureQuest 3D Design a Monster art contest is now taking place! So many good entires --  this is going to be impossible.
11:00am Checking in with the game teams! Today's event will be spanning 6 games. This really is the first time we have tried doing this... only 7 hours left until launch!
11:30am Um... that was weird. Someone just ran into my room to tell me there is a black limo with an ebilcorp logo on it circling the building above the lab. Did one of you go all out on some sort of practical joke?
12:00pm The limo was gone before we could get a picture. So weird! Anyways, only 6 hours until the launch of the event! It is really cool seeing all the game teams pulling together for the same thing. HeroSmash is having some technical problems... nothing like having less than 6 hours to rewrite core engine functionality. Going to help!
12:30pm You know, for pretty much the past 10 years we have been doing non-stop weekly releases. Once we started, we never actually had a week go by without one. How funny would it be if tonight's 10th Anniversary event was "Surprise, no release!" LOL. Note: We would NEVER do that! We did do the opposite once though. Remember the week in DragonFable when the team announced they were just releasing a single fish. People were so mad! But when they caught the fish it took them to a surprise complete underwater zone.
1:15pm All game teams are reporting that they are close. That means... IT IS STORYTIME! What was your favorite memory from our crazy adventures together? The time Captain Rhubarb renamed 10,000 AQWorlds players's names to "Captain Rhubarb" and we had to declare a mulligan day? (A "do over day") ... or perhaps that time legendary AE artist and ninja Thyton (although he sorta looks like a Spartan. Like a... Spartan Ninja.) was creating the dragons for DragonFable and he showed them to and I replied, "Great! Now... let us go draw some GOOD Dragons." He was really hurt. He thought I was saying his dragons were bad and we needed to draw better ones. But what I meant was, he drew a bunch of EVIL looking Dragons and we needed to make some GOOD-GUY dragons. /facepalm.

What was your favorite memory/story from our game community?

2:00pm

Only 4 hours until the anniversary event begins! But this is not the only major event coming this October. It is a non-stop chain of releases starting with the most romantic tale of gamer love. Next week, Rolith (DragonFable/Oversoul Programmer) & Alina (AQworlds co-lead) who met while working here at AE, fell madly in love, became engaged (remember his Old Spice spoof proposal in DragonFable?) and are to be married in real life & in game next week! I was pretty surprised when Rolith asked if I would be his best man. It is traditional for the best man to throw a "bachelors party" before the wedding. That will be... Thursday night. For those of you who have known me for a while, you may think "How in the world is Artix going to throw a good batchelors party? Artix does not drink, does not smoke, would never do drugs, and basically lives a PG lifestyle."  The answer? Life threatening danger. Rolith has no idea what I have in store for him... and is scared out of his mind. So right here, I am promising YOU, that I will post the full story and some pictures from his bachelors party before the wedding next Friday. (Please remind me, you know how crazy things get here ^_^)

3:00pm Miko, when you see this -- please make sure the server hamsters get treats. We need them full speed for tonight's release!
3:30pm

While we are on storytime, I would like to post probably the most interesting & controversial story from the business side of our gaming history. This story is 100% true. Back in 2007, a lot of big companies came trying to buy Artix Entertainment. A lot of people are shocked when they find out that I turned down a legit, written offer for $84 million. This actually happened. I love our games and our community, and I would never give it up for anything.  Maybe this is why I am more proud than ever to be with you and the team are celebrating the 10th Anniversary today. There were a lot of battles back in those days that I was legally not allowed to share with you. Maybe one day I can write a book. But you have always had my back -- and we did ever get into trouble, I know that the team and I could count on you.

Switching topics...

Sometimes we say and do things in the "Artix Universe" that are fantasy. For example, we say that Geopetal, the game lead of DragonFable, is a rock. Of course in real life she is not REALLY a rock (she is a pebble.) Things like this are just plain fun. Well, fun as long as you play along that is. Sort of like an inside joke between friends. But it is funny how pretty much EVERY one of these inside jokes is based on something real. For example, before joining the team, the girl who is Geopetal was actually a Geologist. 100% true. Just something to think about.

5:00pm ONLY one hour until our 1st ever all games event! In my experience... this is where the game crippling bug happens. *goes looking for it* Here buggy, buggy, buggy....
5:39pm Flight attendants, please secure the cabin for take off. Thank you for flying "indie video game air." Please make sure your seat belts are fastened and your seats are in their full, upright position. All electronic devices should be TURNED ON AT FULL POWER and MAX VOLUME for take off. We may experience a little turbulance, but the in-flight movie will feature monsters, combat, and epic adventure. 20 minutes left....
5:45pm HAH! Now that is timing. The black limo with the Ebilcorp logo is driving around the building above the lab again. Hang on, I am going to go get you guys a picture... this is crazy!
5:48pm The elevator is in lock down. What the heck? Checking with Faith to figure out what is going on.
5:55

All game heads reporting in!
- EpicDuel is shutting down to install the release.
- HeroSmash is preparing to shut down to install the release.
- MechQuest & DragonFable & AdventureQuest are on Sandby.
- AQWorlds is reporting some sort of issue...

6:00

What the...

  • Epicduel is now reporting an issue
  • HeroSmash is now reporting an issue
  • AQWorlds is now reporting an issue
  • MechQuest & DragonFable & AdventureQuest are ready... no... wait... what the!?
  • Lab Security system just went into lock down mode!?

TheOriginalFive: About the banana bread, why not excuse yourself and spit it out? Does Daimyo like undercooked stuff?

Or, if you don't want him to have an upset tummy, use it as bait for undead later.

Good luck with the Anniversary.

Mega Mike: Hmm... To the 10 am post I say, 1: Put on a big smile. 2: Look for the nearest trashcan. 3: Make sure no one is looking and spit it out. 4: Hurriedly pop back up and say it was delishious. Or an alternative to 2 would be swallow it anyway, and deal with whatever problems it causes later. But anyway, Congrats on the 10 year anniversary today! It's gonna keep me busy all weekend because I don't have decent leveled characters in every game. XD

NovaDraconis
NovaDraconis: The most polite way to spit something out is to make like you're wiping your mouth with a napkin, and use the napkin to hide your grimace as you surruptitiously spit it out. Throw the napkin away only once their back's turned (pocket it if you have to), and ball it up tightly so they don't see it later. You're a paladin, therefore you're compelled to be honest, so when you tell her it's undercooked (you HAVE to, it's a health risk), be polite, use constructive criticism, and try not to sound ungrateful--the LAST thing you want is to come off as ungrateful to a woman who busted her hump in the kitchen doing a favor for you.

Maddy: Well my most favorite moment from the game of DragonFable was when Sepulchure launched his final massive onslaught against the Heroes of Lore where they took their last stand on lore against Sepulchure and his Massive neverending armies of Darkness that led to the near destruction of lore in the process and the conquering of lore by the Legions of ShadowScythe Monsters.

`Speaking of Ebil Corp...DO NOT LET YOUR GARD DOWN. They are planing something....EBIL.

This is why I love AE! You guys open the doors to us where no other game company would ever let us tread--your hearts and minds. You care so much about us, and we care even more about you, because you're exactly like us, so you know what we want and strive to give it to us. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

So here's a toast, to the last ten years, to the next ten years, and to the infinite expanses beyond! AE FOREVER!!! /cheer /salute /bow

THANK YOU!!!

Taybuscus: I'm so excited! This is going to be amazing. My favorite memory with AE is, of course, playing Dragonfable 6 years ago. I started during the Xan war, and my parents allowed me to play the game because I was nearly 13 and they didn't mind the age difference. My father and I even played Dragonfable together. I've grown up with AE, in a way. I started playing just before I was 13 and here I am now. I'm 17 and not going anywhere! Keep on being awesome AE.

Argus Knight: I remember when Xan burned down Falconreach, and we were left with only a board. Good times... I can honestly say that playing AE games has lead me to want to do what I want to do knowing that they started out making games in Artix's dinning room.

I've been working on my own game for a while now in unity. If I could find the free time for it, I' be a bit quicker but I understand why it takes AE so long to do anything for the new game. Combine 3d modelling with animating, functionality, and storyline creation...
