BREAKING NEWS! Artix publishes a new video game :D
Hiya guys, Artix here. My long time friends at Hyper Awesome Entertainment created a tag team brawler video game called Dungeon Punks. Maybe you saw us streaming last week while we were all sitting on the couch trying out the game. We instantly fell in love with its old-school arcade gameplay -- which reminded us of our favorite games, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dungeons & Dragons, and my personal mega-favorite, Golden Axe. It is fun… and when I saw the laser shooting unicorn mounts I LOL’d. Check out the game for yourself.
Good question! You know when you load a console game and it has a few different game company logos on the front? They represent all of the people/studios who do different parts for the game. As long as you have known us, we have always done both the developing and publishing of our games. But we did not make this one. I know, at first glance from the art it looks like we did. Which is exactly why we were their first pick to be the publisher… which really means promoter when you get right down to it. Hyper Awesome Entertainment is made up of the guys who worked on Shadowtale back in the day. We have actually done a lot of things together and built up a lot of trust over the past 10+ years. Which is why I am proud to help spread word about their game and find it happy players.
Also, if this game does well there is a chance we could work together with Hyper Awesome on a game project in the AQWorlds or Dragon Fable universe. O_O Check out Dungeon Punks and see its game trailer at http://DungeonPunks.Artix.com . The game is normally $15, but we are running a 10% launch discount until the end of the month.

Coming to BioBeasts 1.5.0 are Batteries. Plink needs 10 Batteries to warp in a Mutation-filled Crate to help power up your beasts! Batteries are earned after completing each wave with a bonus battery for defeating the final boss, meaning it's possible to earn enough Batteries for a Crate on any Normal, Hard, or Insane run.
The Mutation Lab
Inside the Mutation Lab you can put those Batteries to good use! Use them to warp in new Crates filled with Battle Mutations, Beast Mutations, and Beast Skins!
After Plink warps in a Crate, it must be unlocked before opening. You can bypass this process with BioBits. Plink will also bring you a free crate every 8 hours. This gives you a great reason to check back on BioBeasts, even if you don't have time to play a few waves!
Each Crate is guaranteed to contain some kind of loot. However, not all Crates are created equally. Iron and Steel Crates, being the most basic, hold the fewest Mutations. Occasionally, Plink will get lucky and warp in a more luxurious crate like a Nuclear or Quantum Crate, which are guaranteed to contain Rare Mutations! Below is the breakdown of what you can expect from each type of Crate.
Iron Crate Only seen in the Tutorial of the game, this Crate has the same capacity as the Steel Crate with 8 Mutations inside, but the unlocking process is very fast. Free Crate Plink will find you a new Free Crate every 8 hours. Free Crates contain 15 Mutations. Steel Crate This most common Crate yields 8 Mutations. Reinforced Crate 15 Mutations, including at least 1 Rare. Elite Crate 30 Mutations, including at least 3 Rare. Nuclear Crate 70 Mutations, including 7 Rare and 1 Ultra. Quantum Crate 250 Mutations, including 25 Rare, 5 Ultra, and 1 Epic.
New Beast Skins!
BioBeasts 1.5.0 launches with 10 new beast skins! These Skin Mutations can be unlocked from our new Mutation Crates, and there will be plenty more to come after the launch:
This week's release is a return to Stoneheart Fall!You can reach Stoneheart Fall from Lymcrest in Book 2 (down, right, down from Lymcrest), or you can use the button in the quest log to go there instantly this week!
Thanks to some newly uncovered tech, Tomix was able to add a whole new layer of depth to this quest- and it looks gorgeous. We hope to use this technology to create even more beautiful and wondrous quests in the future!
Unfortunately, due to an earlier typo in the code from when it was first released, you will need to redo the quest "Dive In" (if you have already completed it) in order to access the new quest.
Now, note from Eric Greydawn about this week's release:
The past is a difficult country to traverse. One of the reasons this is so difficult is because history is most often recorded with cultural bias. What we see as simple, other cultures may not see as being quite so cut and dried. In the case of the Ice Giants, most of what is known of them is based on supposition and conjecture. Certainly SOMETHING happened. We haven’t seen Ice Giants in DragonFable up to this point. That suggests that something MUST have happened. What was it? What drove the Ice Giants to the extreme reaches of the North? What were the Ice Giants like?
With this quest, you will begin a journey for knowledge. Knowledge that has been lost, or obscured over time. There’s a lot to unravel still. Fear not, however, for there are those who are willing to guide you on your quest for knowledge. Be brave, and journey north, where the occasional whisper of living Ice Giants other than Nivalis have been seen.
This quest has been a long time in coming, but now that it’s here, and I’ve started writing again, they will continue. I have a lot to tell you yet, so snuggle up and get comfy… perhaps a fire should be lit on the hearth, and a pot of hot stew served… after all, hospitality demands it.
In other news- This is your last week to purchase the Doomed Dragon Scythe! Get it from the Celebration Shops in the Book of Lore before it leaves!
