Artix Entertainment, the independent game development studio that runs the free, web-based MMO AdventureQuest Worlds with over 15 million players, cordially invites you to celebrate the in-game wedding of Cysero to his beloved bride-to-be. The special event will begin with bizarre quests on Friday, June 11th, 2010.
“We are not sure which will be more odd — the in-game or real-life wedding. I mean, the wedding invitation I received said ’Attire: anything goes. Duck slippers optional’ … and that was for the real-life one!” said Founder and CEO Adam Bohn, who will most likely be attending in a hybrid of Armani and Pirate garb.
The groom, Cysero, is regarded as both the strangest and one of the most popular characters/people at Artix Entertainment. He comes from a long line of dowsers (people who locate water sources using sticks?), he is the sole heir of half an island (in another country), is a ordained minister (via a form on the internet), and asking him how his weekend went often yields a story like: “Well, we found a way to cram 12 people into a single outhouse at the renaissance fair and then spent the day jumping out and surprising people.”
Players have watched his love story unfold over the past years through his posts to the game’s design notes. It is great that the gaming community is invited to be a part of their special moment. But do not expect the mundane exchanging-marriage-vows and eating-overpriced-marzipan routine; this is Cysero’s AQWorlds wedding… and anything can happen (high likelihood of party-crashing Trolls and forging last minute wedding rings from potatoes)!
Did I forget to mention the presents?
No need to re-gift bread makers and fondue sets—this is the only wedding you will ever attend that gives presents to the guests! Ultra rare event items are available to players who make it to the ceremony, ranging from emerald capes to wedding armors and holy matrimony weapons.
So join us for this one-of-a-kind event since Cysero only plans on getting married once. The wedding festivities begin this Friday, June 11th at sundown and will party-on until the servers crash!
