Lunar New Year Celebration is coming

We join players around the world in celebrating a lot of special holidays. (We also celebrate some weirder ones... like >_> Taco Day, which is coming this year! Do not forget to remind us.) So while many of us celebrated the New Years on Jan 1st, the Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year or Spring Festival) takes place later this month on January 25th! We will be celebrating with a shop full of festive items. The vast majority will be available to buy with your character's gold.

3D Rat or Mouse? AdventureQuest 3D

2020 is the year of the Metal Rat!

"Rats off to ya!" (Has anyone else seen that episode of Tom goes to the Mayor?")

In Chinese astrology, each year is represented by an animal. The Rat is the very first one on the Zodiac. It represents being kind, generous, and super diligent.

But why a mouse!?

Good question! The Chinese the word 老鼠 (Rat) can mean either Rat or Mouse. So we went with the mouse for maximum adorableness. (Something has to offset the sheer volume of skulls in our game O_O)

Our newest AQ3D modeler/artist Winnie is currently working on items for the shop.

So, two questions!

First, do you know which zodiac animal you were born under?
