Artix Entertainment Celebrates Talk Like a Pirate Day in All of Its Games

LUTZ, FLORIDA – September 18, 2012 – Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that creates and publishes download-free, Flash-based RPGs to over 150 million registered users,  celebrates International Talk Like a Pirate Day this Wednesday, September 19th, 2012 at 7 PM EDT in all of its major games including AdventureQuest Worlds, EpicDuel, DragonFable, MechQuest, AdventureQuest, and HeroSmash.

Talk Like a Pirate Day is a real holiday where the AE staff can go all out with pirate puns, pirate slang, and pirate gear. And AE players know how the staff loves puns!

New players first logging into any of AE's games this Wednesday will notice that it's not just the gear, quests, and monsters that have received a nautical makeover. Most of AE's veteran players look forward to this pun-filled parody of a holiday each year, forming whole groups of pirate-garbed adventurers to battle against the scurviest enemies the team can throw at them. (Many will continue this way for several days after because... well, pirates are just that cool!).

Talk Like a Pirate Day is always fun and the AE staff would like to invite landlubbers everywhere, new players and old, high-level and brand-new, buckos and wenches alike, to participate in the festivities. Strap on your peg legs, release your parrots, and log in (or create a new, free account) at,,,,, and Each game has its own fun planned, so log in to each one to experience it all!
