So, I was poking around on AQ as I am wont to do on lazy Sunday evenings, playing a couple of quick random quests, and low and behold, I saw something interesting.
September 19th, 2010 was my 7th year playing Artix Entertainment games. You see, I am one of the many staff members who came up through the community, and ultimately ended getting to help make these games happen. So over the last seven years, I’ve gone from being a player, to a community staff member, to game staff, to lead coder on DragonFable, and server-side coder for MechQuest. I’ve even managed to find the love of my life over the past seven years all thanks to these games!
Seven years is an awfully long time, I was just entering my senior year in high school when I created my original AQ account. That seems like a lifetime ago, and really, it sorta is one. Forum question, when did you start playing AE Games? What is the clearest early memory of the games you’ve got?
I know between the proposal posts and this one, it seems like we’ve done a lot of sappy appreciation posts lately, but every word of them is genuine. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without these games, and they wouldn’t get to be here if it wasn’t for you guys, so thanks! But remember, I am not ALWAYS the happy go lucky guy that you see here, and man oh man have I been watching the Thursdays pass this month. Tick Tock, everyone, Tick Tock.
I’d stay tuned to design notes tomorrow for more details on what’s heading our way this week, but looking at my todo list, it’s going to be one of the biggest releases, at least in terms of work for me, we’ve had in quite some time.
