AdventureQuest 3D - CLAWG

Posted by on 98 comments

3D redesign of an AdventureQuest Monster

With the 10 year anniversary event, OverSoul and our Mogloween releases, we temporarily took the spotlight off of our 3D game project. But during this silence, the AQ3D team has done incredible work and made progress. The biggest news is, as of last Friday, we have a working combat system! It is not ready for you to help test yet -- but as soon as the animation, pathing & colision bugs are fixed we will be re-opening the servers for all of you AlphaKnights (no ETA, but we are going as fast as we can. Promise!) Meanwhile, would you like to see some of the new monsters that have been made? (There are a lot of them!)

AQ3D The Clawg

First up is the Clawg. While AQ3D will take place on a new world with a fresh new plot -- it will feature many monsters based on the lore we have created together. The Clawg is a famous monster from classic AdventureQuest. I drew the original Clawg nearly 10 years ago. 6 weeks ago, Thyton re-envisioned it and created a new concept sketch. Xero took the sketch and turned it into the 3D Clawg. I think this new version of the monster sets the tone for how this game will be. Bigger, more dangerous, more mature.

QUESTION: What other classic AdventureQuest monsters would you like to see re-envisioned for AQ3D: Legend of Lore?

 

Random Thoughts

  • The Clawg was most famous from when it appeared in the Frostval event as "Santa Clawg"
  • Of all the monsters we have completed, this is one of the few that has not been animated yet.
  • I bet when it walks it will use the arms like a gorrilla. It might even have an attack that uses the feet.
  • Would the Clawg hunt alone or in packs? Seems like a solitary creature.
  • 10g says a Clawg tastes like lobster. We need to add a cooking skill in ASAP.

Menirz: I think the Ambush would be an intriguing creature for the more mature 3D game, especially with the combat scenarios it involves - aka not knowing if the forest/environment is going to attack you at any given moment. Maybe even add in some ent like creatures.

NovaDraconis
NovaDraconis: What about DF monsters? Elementals, Sneevils, Gorillaphants, and Minx Faeries (as sexy as possible pls), bosses like Mumragon and Bassault, and titans like Honda, the Sandworm, and that undead mutant titan from the Necropolis saga.

Also, I thought the Frostval Clawg boss from AQ was Sandy Claws? I wasn't there for that particular Frostval, but I think one of the Death's Realm quests has him and Frosty the Snow Golem hiding some of Death's stolen hourglasses amongst their stolen Frostval giftboxes? It's been a couple years since I've done that quest, tho.

Zanzibaarus: I do want to see Zards envisioned in 3D.

A strange one: the Grabbii. It's pretty much Cthulu that eats your "household" pets. Look at the game in TV Tropes and it comes up as Eldritch Abomination.

MoglinBeast
MoglinBeast: looks good.
I'd say Drakels, Darkshifters, Zards, and of course, all of the darkovian creatures.
It should hunt in small packs.

Thegoldengoober
Thegoldengoober: Honestly one of my most favorite monsters would have to be the "Four Eyed Menace". It's one of the only monsters I can really remember loving when I first started playing AQ all those years ago. That thing being re-envisioned into 3-D would be kind of intense in my opinion.

Magmartorlx
Magmartorlx: Old AQ monsters? How about the first monster ever fought in the game? I miss that. Can't remember the name. And will you only include old AQ monsters, or will you put some in from Df? And will monsters attack each other in this game? Because I would be amused and forever loyal if you manage to accidentally make a swarm of 3D Zards Zerg Rush a small group of 3D Sneevils.

xThornius
xThornius: Sneevils, Gorillaphants, Zards, Zards should be mounts, by the way! And I bet the Clawg tastes like the mixture of lime, sea water, a hint of lobster, chicken, hint of beef, goat cheese and maybe coco pops. I have tasted all of those but lime.

Nimero
Nimero: Artix, here was a monster you would like to slay in any game - Undead Freak from AQ,a semi intelligent creature capable of leading other skeletons in battle, moves fast(he has four legs), attacks by stabbing and swinging a long spear at you while you're fighting other undead and quickly moving to a safer distance, but if there aren't any other skeletons around, then he doesn't run.

Deni
Deni: Akriloth, exoudus, Obsidia (I think that's how you spell her name if its not if its way off she is the necro trainer) Awethewr, The Galin (In the Omega), and killing a dracopyre would be nice! BTW will the game be playable if u dont have unity flash player? cuz i dont :(

MondezX
MondezX: Carnax would be sick and Nightbane, both would be optional bosses and both would have to be party oriented because of how powerful they were in AQ Classic.

Xanthera
Xanthera: I'd like to see a Blecch or a Magman. Or maybe a Four Eyed Freak, Seed Spitter, Salamander, Mantik, and especially that... that one fire monster that has six legs and is "a beast of burden for the fire realm." (Can't for the life of me remember the name.) And the ice version, too. That would be the coolest thing ever.

kuzonIII: and last i think scince this is going to be an mmorpg they should make super rare weapons like the dragonblade hidden in really hard dungons but once you find it its yours to keep and your the only one to have it or one of the say 5 players to have it. that would be beast
