Ending Soon!

30 Days of Player Suggestions, Big Bad Barbarian Ultra Rares, and Talk Like A Pirate Day loot.

Happy Monday everyone! Get your Anti-Pink Goggles ready, grab a snack, and fill your caffeine-vessel with your favorite drink, ‘cuz there’s a bunch of stuff we are going to cover today =D

The first thing on the agenda: 30 Days of Player Suggestions. I can’t believe it’s almost been a full month! We have had sooo many awesome suggestions and it’s been even more awesome implementing these ideas in game. We have so many super talented artists out there!

Today’s player suggestion is the Dark Energy Ripper, inspired by our fellow player Paradoxies.

Dark Energy Ripper

The Dark Energy Ripper can be obtained at both the HeroSpire and SkullDeep Kiosks for 28 DTs. Even though this blade looks like something only the evilest of Villains would use… I couldn’t help but make it available to Heroes as well since I am a Hero and I reaaaallly liked the look of this weapon! So YES, the Dark Energy Ripper can be used by both Heroes and Villains! How super!  

After today, that leaves us with only 4 more suggestions. But don’t be sad if your idea hasn’t made it in game yet—every once in awhile, we will release more player suggested items, so keep your brain a’storming ‘cuz you never know if (or when!) you will see your own ideas in game.

Market Street Merch

Next thing you should be aware of is all the Rare Items leaving Market Street on Thursday!

Big Bad Barbarians

The Ultra Rare Big Bad Barbarian gear at the Mega Movie Plex will be setting sail soon—and will NEVER be offered again. So for all those Rare Item hunters out there, now is your last chance to score this barbaric bounty!  

And while you’re on Market Street, make sure to pay that old sea dog Capn’ Skampy a visit! He’s right outside Captain Mack’s Head Shop and is loaded with a treasure chest of Talk Like A Pirate Day booty.

TLAPD booty

All of these items are Seasonal Rares, so no one knows if they will be back again next year or not. We cannot see into the future—nor are we on speaking terms with the Clock Blocker—so we do not know if these items will return during the 2012 TLAPD season.

But it’s better to be safe than sorry seasonal rare-less. So get your TLAPD items while you still got a chance! Yaaaaaaaarrrrrr!

Speaking of the Future…

October is nearly here! And that means that the spookiest time of the year is quickly approaching.

But there’s a slight problem. Okay—a BIG problem. You see, in AdventureQuest Worlds, they have “Mogloween.” Because they have Moglins. And that makes sense. But we don’t have Moglins in HeroSmash. Sooooo…..????? You see the problem!

Should we call it Octoween? Howl-o-tober? Super-Spooky-Candy-Eating-Pumpkin-Carving-Day? Howl*Con? Fright Night? Harvest Festival? Or what?

We just don’t know! And that’s why we need your help!

Feel free to post your thoughts on what we should call HeroSmash’s first spook-tastical holiday event on my Twitter or on Yergen’s.

Let the tricks and treats and great ideas commence!

Everyone is Super!

August 22, 2011

If Evil is never supposed to win…

then why are the Villains winning?!?

Super Death’s war has reached Day 4. Heroes and Villains alike are dukin’ it out on the battlefield against a flurry of shadow beasts from Death’s previous trials. Here’s the score so far:

hero side

Hero side vs the Villain side

evil side

It looks like the Villains are in the lead! But…but….but… I thought evil never prevails?

Or was that only true in AQWorlds? *pulls out hair* I have sooo much to learn about HeroSmash!

I guess there is only one way to find out which side Super Death will choose—and that’s to keep on kicking shadow monster butt! You and your super pals have until Thursday to show Death whether or not he should side with the Heroes or the Villains… so get your double click finger ready and head to the Fortress of Deathitude to settle the score!

What’s with the Ultra Rare Mega Movie stuff?bbarbarian

Any HeroSmash newbies here? Like me? Hehehe! Well, last week was my first official week on the HeroSmash team. And it was my first time seeing how HeroSmash releases play out. Needless to say, I was quite surprised and confused (well, more confused than usual) when I came across the Ultra Rare Big Bad Barbarian loot.

I was all like, “Heeeey Yergen… wats all dis Barbarian stuff, and why are dey Ultra Rares?”

Now here’s where it gets REALLY awesome, as if Ultra Rare items weren’t awesome enough: Yergen explained to me that every time a new blockbuster movie hits the big screen in real life, your creative HeroSmash team whips together a handful of movie-parody collectibles that are only available for a limited time!

lol not that kind of trailer
The trailer for Big Bad Barbarians.

Sadly, I missed out on the Pirate related stuff and the Harriet Popper swag =( But I didn’t know!

And now I do. And I’m all loaded up on Big Bad Barbarian gear! Aaaaand I’m going to make sure that I get my hands on the next batch of Ultra Rares when a new movie hits the big screen!

Prepare the popcorn for total domination! Omnomnom >:D

A Quick Glimpse into the Future

I know what you guys and gals love more than Ultra Rares and movie parodies: sneak peeks!

And do I have a treat for you. Next week is the start of a little something we’re calling

30days of suggestions
30 Days of Player Suggestions!

Yup. You guessed it. Just like the name suggests, HeroSmash is going to take your super ideas and suggestions and try our best to implement them into the game for 30 days straight! We are looking to release at least one new player suggested item every day for the entire month!

WOW. Can it be done? Well… we are ganna try our best to make sure of it! We’re stocking up on our coffee bean hoards as I type this.

Wanna get a head start at submitting your ideas and suggestions? Head to the forums and let your ideas be heard, seen, and admired!     

Seeing all of your wonderful ideas on the forums makes me soo happy—and seeing your wonderful ideas in game makes me even happier!  With double the smiley faces and triple the exclamation points!!! =D See!

Because you know what? This game was made FOR YOU, so YOU should be a part of making this game! It is because of Members like you that we are able to keep HeroSmash up and running for everyone to enjoy, and as the game grows stronger with each passing day, we want to hear your ideas and suggestions on how we can make it even better!

And what better way than with the upcoming 30 Days of Suggestions challenge! Heck yeah!

Although we are open to all kinds of suggestions, we do want to keep with the whole HeroSmash theme. Think modernfuturisticmilitarysomething that you would want your Hero or Villain to bring along with them during their super adventures. Or a special ability that you want to harness and master.

We wanna hear it all! So start thinking and get submitting!

Click this link when you are ready to submit your HeroSmash idea or suggestion!  

The entire team is super excited to see what super ideas you come up with. Don’t worry—you’ve got 30+ days to submit your ideas, so there really is no rush. Take your time, think your ideas out thoroughly, and we will all see sooner or later if your idea makes it into game.

Good luck to everyone, and in the meantime… the Shadow War still rages on. C’mon Heroes, we can win this battle (and get our hands on that sweet Shadow rep gear too).

Battle Smash ON!

Tonight’s Release is Live!

Well, technically, it’s dead, since Super Death has started a war!

This is just great. What kind of luck do I have? The moment I come over to HeroSmash… aaaand a huge war breaks out.

super death war

I didn’t sign up for this! Who’s in charge here?!

...Oh right. I’m part of that team now =D

So here’s what’s going on in tonight’s super release: For the past couple of weeks, Super Death has been sending you on his ridiculously difficult trials in order for him to decide which side to fight for. Should he be a Hero, or a Villain?

It appears that both factions are equally matched, so the only logical thing for him to do now is to start a war! Heroes will fight on one side while Villains man the other, taking down hoards of baddies that will earn you Shadow Reputation.

Oh and yeah, all that Shadow rep you get will let you unlock awesome gear in Super Death's shop. He is even releasing some brand new loot just for the war! Here's your chance to get your super hands on the Shadow Beast armor, Flames of Shadows, the Lights Out blade, Shades of Chaos, Shadow Knight Helm, Shadow Reaper axe, Shadow Beast Wings, and the Shield of Darkness!

me and my homeboy deathNow that's what I call a shady character!

Whichever side wins the war will be the final say to whether or not Super Death becomes a Hero or a Villain. Personally, I'm hoping he sides with PINK... but Artix insists that that's not an option... so I guess we will see which side wins at the end of the war!

Ultra Rares in Store Now

YAAAY! Brand new ultra rares have arrived at the Movie Mega Plex on Market Street! This week, Big Bad Barbarian is hitting the big screen and you can score some epic barbaric loot!

big bad barbarian loot

This is your only chance to get these ultra rares, so if you see something you like, you better snag it up before it's too late! Show off the Stygian Sorcerer armor, the Big Bad Barbarian armor, Assassins Mark, Barbarian's Curse, Barbarian Swipe, Barbarian Helm, Sword of Backonus, Sword of Teanna, The Hellenic Mark, Barbaric Buckler, Axe of Brofeeni, Gaul's Slayer, Chakram of Mlechcha, Nerfarious Mittens, Barbary Scimitar, Shiled of Barbaria, and the Barbarian's Conquest sword!

On a side note...

This has been my first week back to Artix, and my first full day working with the HeroSmash team, and I have had SO MUCH FUN so far! I cannot wait to brainstorm with the team tomorrow and start working on next week's release. School starts up again in a few days, so I am going to devote as much time as I can to working on (aka playing) HeroSmash. I have a lot to go through before I become a super master at the game!

Me and the team have A LOT of ideas for HS that we cannot wait to unleash. You and all your friends help make HeroSmash possible, so we want to make HeroSmash the most fun possible for you! =D

Thank you all for your support, and we are honored to have such super friends to play with. There's a lot of great things a'commin', and we are stoked to have you along for the ride!

Now, get out there and prove to Super Death why he should be a Hero or a Villain. Battle on!
