Do you want to know the #1 secret about being a video game creator?

Greetings and salutations friend,

Artix here.

Do you want to know the #1 secret about being a video game creator?

I have been building weekly-updated video games for millions of players for nearly 20 years...

At this point, I know lots of secrets.

And I am terrible at keeping them.

I literally put 0 stat points into secrecy.

(But my luck is maxed... which is why I am so lucky you are reading this)

If you have been getting emails or reading my posts for a while, then you already know the secret.

And it has nothing to do with undead pirates.

Undead Pirate

Although, these new armor sets and more are coming in next week's 2020 Talk Like a Pirate Day release.

Which will also include AdventureQuest 3D's big fishing release...

... which was supposed to go live this week.

But we are currently waiting for it to be approved across all of the platforms X_X

Fishing Poles

There are things you can control and things you cannot. And that is where the secret comes in.

You cannot always control what happens to you, but you can ALWAYS control how you respond to it.

And the correct response is to...


Alternative translations...

  • Never give up!
  • Persist until you win
  • Stay the course.
  • Believe in yourself
  • Keep going!

It does not matter if you are making games, writing a book, chasing your life's dream, or just finishing that thing you are supposed to be working on-- but you hit "the wall".

Never give up.

And when you need a break to relax in between chasing your destiny, come hang out with us in AdventureQuest 3D.

And while this in no way fits inside this motivational letter, I would be silly not to remind you to take advantage of our get 50% more DragonCrystals sales this weekend... before the Pirate Collection drops next week ..

50% Bonus

Hindsight being 2020, we should have put a Pirate there instead of the Moglin girl...

But I am neck deep in work on the Tower of Necromancy and the Dakovia Saga parts III & IV. which are coming next.

Tower of Necromancy Lich


This is your last chance to play the old fishing system before it goes poof.

See you in game.

Battle on!

P.S. Nobody knows what the "Bush Faction Gold Card" is that drops from that secret bush in the north part of town... highly recommend holding onto one before that bush goes poof too.

Play AdventureQuest 3D
