Each year the friendly AE team makes the perilous journey to DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia. What is it? Imagine a four day long, 40,000 person costume party with games, comics, anime, robot battling, art galleries, vendors, concerts, celebrity guests, and panels on everything from how to swordfight, write novels, make costumes, meet the cast of your favorite TV series…. AND you can go to the AQWorld’s panel and meet US! This was Artix Entertainment’s 5th year publically humiliating ourselves at DragonCon... and here is the story of what happened!
The AE Panel:
We are a indie web video game company. We make the games AdventureQuest, DragonFable, MechQuest and our new MMO AdventureQuest Worlds. Web games are not usually seen in the light as off the shelf games -- so you can imagine the incredible feeling of surprise and joy we had in our hearts when the small room was literally overflowing with players of our games. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Some came from all the way from Texas, the UK and even New Zealand just to be there with us. (Sunumbrella and Mturf… thank you for the special gifts!)
Kicking off the panel, Cysero plugged his iPhone into the room’s sound system and hit play. “This is a triumph… I’m making a note here… huge success….”, sang a robotic voice. It was the song from the end of Portal. We played it to open our panel last year too. The crowed started to sing along. But oh yes, the Cake was a lie. BAM! Cysero Rick-Rolled them…
Cysero kept cracking us up. Thank you all for an incredible time!
We handed everyone newspaper pirate hats and a name tag saying, “My name is Captain Rhubarb.” One by one each staff member stood and introduced themselves as Captain Rhubarb. Everyone in the audience was laughing. It was weird. We went to explain the inside joke – but they all already knew it! During the AQWorlds Beta Captain Rhubarb had accidentally renamed every single player in the game to Captain Rhubarb. The next day everyone (including the staff) had to create a brand new account. We called it “Mulligan day.” It became a holiday. It was also the ultimate ice breaker. Continued..>>
