AdventureQuest was Artix Entertainment’s first project released in October 2002. It was meant to be called “Land Of Rising Evil” (Lore). Now it is also referred to as AdventureQuest Classic and The Original AdventureQuest. The game is also called Battleon sometimes because of its domain name. The game is set in the fictional world of “Lore”, a tongue-in-cheek reference to the original game name, Lands of Rising Evil. While it is free to play, players may upgrade their characters to become AdventureQuest Guardians in order to receive exclusive in-game benefits.
Artix Entertainment’s expansion to AdventureQuest, WarpForce, was released on July 17, 2009. It is a sequel to AdventureQuest, specifically relating to the recently completed five-year Devourer story arc in AdventureQuest, and there has been many crossovers between the two. It was built with the same game engine as AdventureQuest and, likeAdventureQuest and Artix Entertainment’s other single-player RPGs, is free to play with an optional one-time fee.
WarpForce is about the people of Lore (Humans, Dwarves, Elves, and a reptilian race called Drakel) who band together to create a fleet of starships powered by both magic and science, and zoom into outer space on missions to defeat a powerful and vast alien Network that is working to take over the universe. WarpForce takes ideas of traditional fantasy and incorporates them into a sci-fi universe, combining classic RPG elements with Artix Entertainment’s trademark humor and a single-player storyline that unlocks as the player levels up, becoming more powerful by increasing stats and getting advanced equipment. Players will be able to choose from several races, dynamically change equipment during the animated battles, and also be able to combine their efforts in large wars and crossover events.
After AdventureQuest gained popularity, Artix Entertainment began to develop DragonFable and released it in June 9, 2006, set in the same world as AdventureQuest. But unlike AdventureQuest which featured a 2D background with the player’s clicking the edges of the screen or doors to move around, DragonFable has a 2.5D movement system.
What is DragonFable?
DragonFable is an animated fantasy RPG that you can play using your web browser. Each week the DragonFable creative team add new original content based on the suggestions of you and your fellow players as we evolve our ongoing storyline. DragonFable is free to play, but if you like what we are doing you can help support the game by upgrading with a powerful Dragon Amulet unlocking exclusive areas and powerful items.
The third game, MechQuest is a science fiction RPG set in the a similar universe as the previous two games. MechQuest ’s game system is a fusion between AdventureQuest ’s and DragonFable ’s. Players can either move around and fight on foot or pilot their own giant robot (called mechas in the game) to fight evil forces invading planets around the galaxy.
A Mecha RPG in a Fantasy World
MechQuest is a FREE browser-based fantasy giant destructive war machine battle game. Sound fun? You bet! Heavily inspired by the art from every mecha & giant robot series ever created (and we are throwing in magic and laser swords too!) we will be putting a true ‘Anything Goes’ build and battle ‘Lunchbreak-sized’ game. Keep your holivids tuned in for more… *Bizzzzzzipwhip…kccccht!*
AdventureQuest Worlds is the fourth major game made by Artix Entertainment. It is also the first multiplayer MMORPG created by that company. The game was released on October 10, 2008. Like its predecessors, it uses 2D-3D animation, although in a much simpler style to account for the increased server load and incorporates elements of all three previous games in its story. Unlike its predecessors, however, membership which is called Legend upgrades are not a one-time payment, but are instead purchased only for a certain number of months.
Play is similar to many MMORPGs, with players being able to chat and fight both in-game monsters and other players, in limited areas. Characters can be customized in appearance and gear, and character classes are available to train in game. Combat is not turn-based as in Artix Entertainment’s previous RPGs, but is real-time and allows for group battles. Special events take place often, with many holidays being celebrated in-game. Other special events include wars, in which players collaborate to defeat enough “waves” of monsters to win the war over several days, and live events with guest stars like Voltaire, One-Eyed Doll, George Lowe, Paul and Storm, Jonathan Coulton, the cast of Ctrl+Alt+Del, Ayi Jihu, ArcAttack, They Might Be Giants, and Michael Sinterniklaas as the voice of Deady.
Artix Entertainment called this game the “big jackpot” as a nickname due to the fact that they made over £1 billion just from its first month release. On December 2, 2009, Artix Entertainment announced that they were taking on a new MMORPG, EpicDuel, which they acquired from Epic Inventions LLC, who were developing the game independently. This is now their sixth major game and second major MMORPG. EpicDuel ’s battle system is primarily based on player versus player gameplay.
