Log in to www.AQ.com tomorrow at 7 PM EST for an event filled with music, robots, and… unicorns!

LAND O'LAKES, FLORIDA - January 12, 2012 – Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that delivers download-free, browser-based RPGs to over 135 million registered players, today announced it will host an in-game Friday the 13 th event with musician Voltaire and YouTube sensation Andrew Huang tomorrow, January 13 th, 2012, at 7 PM EST in the hit MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds.

Friday the 13 th is always a big event in AQWorlds, and this one promises to be even more explosive than before. Players will find themselves sent on an unforgettable adventure to save a village from a gigantic, malfunctioning robot girl. If their luck holds out, they might even save her, too! And as AQWorlds players know, there would be no Friday the 13th event without Voltaire. So players must summon him for his aid... by standing in front of a mirror and saying his name three times, of course!

Player-favorite musician Voltaire is returning to Adventure Quest Worlds for this spectacular event. The release will feature three of his newest songs, including Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with the Laughter of Small Children. And since two songs about unicorns are better than one, players will also enjoy internet videographer and musician Andrew Huang’s Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows.

Each artist’s piece came from the same source – their followers. After a fan jokingly referred to his music as being similar to the experience of "riding a black unicorn down the side of an erupting volcano while drinking from a chalice filled with the laughter of small children," Voltaire thought it was a fitting song title and wrote his tribute to the mythological creatures. Once his fan base saw that he had recorded a song about unicorns, another viewer linked Voltaire to Andrew Huang’s unicorn song. All of Andrew's songs, including Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows, are written and recorded based on fan feedback and suggestions.

Everyone of every level is invited to play this one-of-a-kind Friday the 13th event where the AQWorlds team will combine Voltaire's Black Unicorn with Andrew's Pink Fluffy Unicorn in a volcanic eruption of flames and fluffiness! Join us in-game at www.AQ.com this Friday, January 13 th, 2012 at 7 PM EST.
