Following our development blog for the latest BioBeasts news:
After several months of rigorous development, BioBeasts is finally ready to erupt from its containment cell at the Underground Lab and escape to the iOS and Android App stores! We’re extremely excited and proud to officially announce the launch date:
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 20, 2016
Woah! Woah! What is this Bye-Oh-Beasts? I’m glad you asked! If you don't want to read the whole FAQ, BioBeasts a challenging new free single-player action game for Android and iOS! You are a powerful mutant beast battling through a terrifying laboratory run by merciless mechanical guards. Defend yourself against endless hordes of robots, lab defenses, and hulking bosses as you claw, bite, blast, and bash your way to freedom! Unlock new beasts with unique powers, and upgrade potent mutations to experiment with for endless variety!
Meet the Team
BioBeasts was created mainly by the EpicDuel Team, but nearly everyone at Artix Entertainment had a hand in the project, whether it was contributing artwork, Unity expertise, testing, or simply helping us spread awareness!
BioBeasts is nearly ready to launch, but we need your help for it to succeed! When we first started BioBeasts, we wanted a way to learn the ropes in Unity and mobile development while incorporating some familiar EpicDuel elements. We knew a huge multiplayer game was out of scope for such a project so we narrowed the focus of the project to an intense, challenging action game with surprising depth.
Our goal with BioBeasts was to create a game that was a counterpoint to the current trend in mobile games that harkens back to a time when games focused on skill and reflexes. BioBeasts captures that classic feel of intense, old-school arcade games that could be understood in seconds, but took days to master. With BioBeasts, there aren’t any timers or energy systems or social gimmicks to interrupt or limit your play that have become so common in the mobile gaming generation. You can play as much as you want, whenever you want!
Bring the THUNDER!
One of the biggest challenges new mobile games face is simply getting the word out! Fortunately, we have many tools at our disposal to extend our reach as far as possible. Did you know you can dedicate your own social media reach to support the BioBeasts game launch? It's super simple and 100% FREE:

BioBeasts? Is that a new game?
You're absolutely right! BioBeasts is a new arcade-survival mobile game from the Epicduel team, coming soon to iOS and Android devices! Control, unlock, and mutate your beasts as you battle to break out of the robot-controlled laboratory. You can keep up to date with all the release news and previews on their website here!

Tis’ the season for Frost Dragons, SLAY-bells, and ridiculously-named monsters wearing furry hats-- like Santa Clawg, his 9 rein-dragons, and the unstoppable hero-eating Frosty the Snow Golem. (...must have been some magic in that old helm they found. They told us he would be coming back one day!)
Our video game community is a big family, and are thinking warm thoughts about you. Surprisingly easy since it is so hot outside! Thankfully it is snowing in the town of Battleon. We have been celebrating Frostval together for 13 ice-monster filled years in our video games. Translating literally to “Frost Festival,” it is how we celebrate the season and bring everyone across the world together. We hope you enjoy the events we have created for you this year. Sincerely, thank you for being a part of it all.
Words cannot express how grateful we are for the opportunity to make these video games with you. We are now building something we never dreamed was possible. How crazy is it that you got us greenlit on Steam? AdventureQuest 3D IS GOING TO BE ON STEAM!!! Look how far we have come-- and it is all because of you. We will never forget that… we never do.
Wherever you are, have a fun, warm, safe and happy time this holiday season.
Battle on! Artix & all of your friends at Artix Entertainment

Tonight the Reaper makes its spooky return! It's available now in the Star Captain Club! It has a bit of a different twist on what the Morehawk did. The more health your foe has the stronger its effects will be, but the less damage your attacks will do. The less health your foe has the weaker the effects will be, but the more damage your attacks will do.

Along with this, Mortis has returned! You can now catch up on anything you've missed in the previous years and get ready for this year's event. (It'll start next week!)
For those of you wondering. The Ultra OmniBlade will transform, and the follow up quest to it will happen at the END of the month or when the AQW war is won. I need a bit more time to get the quest ready and the original plan was to make the stuff live when the AQW war was won, so that's what I'm sticking with!
We are building this years new Calendar! Thyton was painting at the lab into the wee hours of the night... so I took a picture of what he is working on with my cell phone. YUP! A repainting of the classic DragonFable login screen focing on the DoomKnight Sepulchure!
This year's calendar features paintings of favorite characters (Sepeulchure, Gravelyn, Galanoth, Artix), and never before seen NEW CHARACTERS that will be appearing next year in our games! Here is a preview of the cover.
Dage also contributed several of his personal works for this calendar... making it an incredible collector's piece. We really raised the bar on this one... it is best described as 12 limited edition prints combined into one epic 12 page, full size, painted calendar. Yes, like our previous calendars it will include in-game items. More on that coming soon.
The Artix Entertainment 2016 Calendar will go on sale at www.HeroMart.com at the end of this month.
QUESTION: Which of our previous calendars was your favorite? (Personally, I think the Dragons calendar was the best... but the AQWorlds one from a few years prior had so much character. I liked that the poster calendars were flippable, I still have them on my wall. But getting an epic change of scenery every month makes the flip calendars better in my opinion. After the year is over, I can cut out the picture parts and hang them like limited prints.)
