We used to play Adventure Quest together back in 2007. We recently found out that the game is still active and decided to see if our old accounts were still active too. Surprisingly, we were both able to login and picked up right where we left off 15 years ago!
The game was built in Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash) and was a popular web browser game in that year and it was developed by Artix Entertainment. Its popularity was due to the fact that it didn’t require any installation, making it accessible to everyone and that time its some kind of a new technology.
The Adventure Quest is an online RPG game that allows you to create a custom character and go on quests in order to defeat the rising evil in the land. The game features 2D drawn characters, and there are many different maps which your quests will take you to, including Frostvale, Battleon, Granemor, Lolosia and more. As you travel through these various areas, you’ll encounter monsters of different levels that you’ll need to fight in order to complete your quest.
We were curious to try the game again, but since Adobe Flash is no longer supported in any modern web browser, we didn’t know if it would still be possible. However, we found out that there is a game launcher for Windows, Mac and Linux. At first, we weren’t sure if we could still use our old account from 2007. So, we went to the “Forgot Password” page and entered the email address we used on it. Fortunately, it emailed back the list of accounts associated with that address and we were able to reunion with our beloved characters.
The game has seen too many updates, and there are already new monsters and missions in the game that may overwhelm you when you decide to come back. But the feeling of nostalgia are still in there and its just happy to see your 15 year old character well and alive. It’s rare for a developer to preserve an old game and its servers – most simply abandon them. The developers of this game have done a good job in keeping it alive for their players.
