Land O’ Lakes, FL - January 12, 2009 - Artix Entertainment’s MMORPG
AdventureQuest Worlds was the setting for the December 29th wedding of longtime
Artix gamers Bello and Merca which was broadcast live starting on
http://www.aqworlds.com with over 11,000
gamers in attendance.
The bride, who is a retailer, and the groom, who is a pre-school teacher, have
been avid Artix gamers for three years. They live in southwestern Missouri and
decided to share their union with fellow gamers worldwide.
“We thought this was a unique opportunity to do something memorable,” said
Bello. “We decided to go with AdventureQuest Worlds because we’ve been playing
Artix games for years now and almost feel like we’ve been a part of Artix
Entertainment’s maturation as a gaming company.”
The wedding was held in a private room while the 11,000 players joined clones of
that room which featured avatars of the wedding party and was updated in real
time. This allowed all players to share in the same experience. The ceremony
itself was tongue and cheek and was inevitably raided by Troll Wedding Crashers
which camped out on the dance floor of the reception area. Wedding items were
released including the Rose Thorn Blade, Wedding Cake Pet (a piece to go),
Wedding Candle, The Eternal Flame and the Bouquet.
AdventureQuest Worlds, which launched in mid-October, has captured the interest
of 2.3 million players so far, and they are opening their free accounts at the
rate of 250,000 per week.
Artix, a small, Florida-based family-owned studio that offers three other RPG
titles AdventureQuest, MechQuest, and DragonFable, has enjoyed a high success
rate in the past five years with over 60 million accounts created for their
games. Players can visit http://www.AQ.com,
