Artix Entertainment Exceeds 150 Million Registered Users

LAND O'LAKES, FLORIDA - March 15, 2012 – Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that creates and publishes download-free, browser-based games, announced today that it has reached a major milestone: over 150 million registered players across all its games.

The company was founded in 2002 by Adam Bohn. Adam's original goal was to make a game and get 100 players to play it. His first game, AdventureQuest, quickly met and exceeded that goal. Over the next several years, the company's player base grew quickly and steadily as Adam developed more flash-based browser games. Today, Artix Entertainment has several successful games including AdventureQuest Worlds, DragonFable, MechQuest, EpicDuel, HeroSmash, and the original AdventureQuest.  Adam and the Artix team have updated each game every week since its launch – a Herculean task for any studio.

In 2010, Artix Entertainment announced it had reached the 100-million-player milestone. A short two years later, the company's player-base has grown to 150 million registered players -- a growth rate of over 70,000 new players daily. 

"When they ran the database query and gave me the number, I was shocked," said Adam Bohn, CEO and founder of Artix Entertainment. "I'm really proud of the teams and grateful that so many players are enjoying our games."
