The small developer is based in Land O' Lakes, Florida and was founded in 2002. Its catalog includes three single-player online RPGs --DragonFable, MechQuest, and AdventureQuest -- and two free-to-play MMOs,AdventureQuest Worlds, EpicDuel, the latter of which it acquired last December.

Artix reached this milestone just five months after its library hit the 100 million accounts mark, with more than 13 million of those registered for its Flash-based MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds. The company did not mention if it counts users who have registered for multiple games in its tally.

The studio has previously claimed that its titles receive an average of 35,000 new players each day, and has attributed that success to its release of weekly updates for all of its games and player-inspired content/modifications.

"We really need to release more interesting news than our user count," mused Artix Entertainment CEO Adam Bohn. "Maybe something about our new games we are creating, the bizarre store we are about to open, or maybe the movie project."
