AdventureQuest 3D is a multiplatform MMO being built by the amazing team at Artix Studios in Land o'Lakes, Florida (near Tampa), the state most recently slammed by what's been called the most devastating hurricane in recorded history. "Artix Krieger" has taken to the game's page to detail how he and his team dealt with the events before, during and after Irma slammed into the state. It's a harrowing tale, though one with an ultimately happy ending.

While I always write in a tongue and cheek way, this was a terrible situation. We were lucky, but there are a lot of people who lost their homes, possessions, and lives. Our hearts go out to everyone who suffered loss from this Hurricane. And we celebrate the heroes who did whatever it took to keep people safe. One interesting story is my friend Hannah who saved a friend using Twitter.

4 million people across the state do not have power and Warlic, Dage, Faith, and I are a few of them. The Lab has power though. We got our video game studio back online and running. As I write this, the coders are working on the new class improvements for AdventureQuest 3D.

We're grateful to know our friends at Artix are well, if still reeling from the devastation from the hurricane.

It's a terrific read, folks, so head to the AdventureQuest 3D site to check it out.
