Artix Entertainment to Host Friday the 13th In-Game Event with Musical Guest Aurelio Voltaire in MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds

LAND O'LAKES, FLORIDA - April 13, 2012 – Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that creates and publishes download-free, browser-based RPGs to over 150 million registered players, announced it will host an in-game Friday the 13 th event with player-favorite musician Aurelio Voltaire today, April  13 th, 2012 at 7 PM EDT in the hit MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds.

When you battle in a world filled with necromancers, minions, and witches, it’s a good bet that something big is going to happen on Friday the 13 th. Players logging in to the event will find that a new enemy has appeared, an inter-dimensional villain named Sleezter Bunny, and he’s brought an army of bunny clones with him. Together, Sleezter Bunny and his army are a larger threat than anything AQWorlds players have faced before.

The timer on Sleezter Bunny’s egg-shaped Secret Weapon is running out, and so are the players' chances to save their world. The players will need to break some eggs and crack some heads or Sleezter Bunny’s creepy clone minions will take over the entire world of Lore!

Voltaire has teamed up with AdventureQuest Worlds for several events in the past. Each event features new songs from his albums. Today's event will feature his new song Bunnypocalypse as well as instrumental versions of songs from his upcoming Riding a Black Unicorn Karaoke album.

Everyone of every level is invited to attend this special event and help save Lore from Sleezter Bunny and his evil bunny minion clones.  Join us in-game at www.AQ.com today, April 13 th, 2012 at 7 PM EDT.
