COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 4 

The life of a Mad Wizard is a lonely one, and for Merci the Mad Wizard it is lonelier than most. This year, Merci has a plan — one sure to mend his own loneliness through the power of Love Magic!

But it appears Merci has miscalculated, accidentally opening a portal to Super Love Land — and the dangers beyond... Merci's Mix-Up 4 introduces Ishtar the Fire Queen, and brings back Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, and Frankie the Demon Crooner! The romance comes to a finish on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00PM PT!!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Ishtar the Fire Queen

Legends tell of Ishtar the Fire Queen, a supernatural fertility demon who knows just how to get the most out of each and every Crusader in her formation.

Ishtar's Fertile Thoughts increase Global DPS and her Starlight increases the potency of angels and demons. Her allure knows little bounds, as she is able to attract Fire Sprites that increase Gold Find and speed up quest progress.

Female Crusaders who follow Ishtar will see improvements to their DPS, as long as they don't become too close, and when Ishtar tells Whispered Stories, Global DPS increases for every Royal Crusader in the formation. Don't worry if you cannot find enough Royal Crusaders to boost your formation, for the glorious Ishtar is able to elevate worthy Crusaders to royalty — provided they first become close to The Fire Queen...

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, and Frankie the Demon Crooner are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Ishtar | Ishtar the Fire Queen starts in the formation. Meteors randomly strike the formation, and if Ishtar dies, you'll need to restart the Area. Reach area 600.

  • I Put a Cantrip on You | Only The Bush Whacker, Nate Dragon, and the Crusaders from Merci's Mix-Up are available. Additional blue and green monsters spawn; killing the blue monster will cost Crusaders half their health, while killing the green one will improve Global DPS for 15 seconds. Reach area 700.

  • Fly Me to the Stars | Three 'Stars' occupy slots in the formation, changing positions every 75 Areas. Each Star disables the DPS and formation abilities of adjacent Crusaders who are not an angel, demon, supernatural, magical, royalty, or a dragon. Reach area 750.

  • My Funny Valentine Candy | Heart Candies spawn at random and are very difficult to kill. Each Heart Candy disables a random Crusader in the formation while it is alive. Reach area 800.

  • Moon Dancing | The night is dark and the moon illuminates only two Crusaders at a time. Only the illuminated Crusaders are able to do DPS. Taskmasters are disabled. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Valentine's Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00PM PST to complete Merci's Mix-Up 4!

Crusaders of the Lost Idols: Mobile Retirement 


It's with heavy hearts that today we announce the retirement of the mobile version of Crusaders of the Lost Idols. While its release was an awesome milestone for us at Codename, regrettably we haven't attracted the player base we need to continue to maintain it, and the time and effort we use keeping it up to date could be better spent on the PC version of the game.

But don't worry! You can still play Crusaders on a computer on Steam, Kongregate, Armor, Facebook, Miniclip and the all-new Codename Games website! Plus we'll be continuing to support the computer version with the extra development time we'll have freed up!


What's Happening and What Does it Mean?

We want to give you plenty of time to transfer your progress to one of the other platforms where Crusaders is playable. If you currently only play on mobile, you can link your progress to a PC platform by:
  • Pressing the Link button in the in-game Settings menu, and generating a code.



    Settings menu, with Link button highlighted.



    Link Dialog, where you press the Generate a Code button.

  • Load Crusaders on the computer on the platform where you wish to play. Available platforms are Steam, Kongregate.com, ArmorGames, Miniclip, Facebook and the Codename Games website.

  • Play through the tutorial for the game on that platform until you complete it.

  • Type the code from your mobile device into the Linked Accounts option in the Options menu in Crusaders on your computer.
If you don't currently play on mobile, we are no longer offering the option to link your PC progress to your mobile device. We will be disabling purchasing in-game on mobile devices with this update as well.

The mobile app will no longer be available to play or to download as of May 1st, 2019. We will however keep the app up to date with new events and crusaders until that point. After May 1st, if your device has kept the app updated, you will still be able to link your mobile progress off your device, however you will no longer be able to play.

While the era of the mobile version is ending, it does mean that the Crusaders team will be able to focus all their energy on the computer version and allow us more time to add new features and make improvements to the game.


But What About the Ad Bonus?

We'll be adding a passive 25% Idol bonus to all resets, available no matter where you play the game. That's right, no more having to click buttons or watch videos for extra Idols. They'll just happen!

Because we'll be adding this new passive bonus for Idols, we'll be removing the ad bonus system from the various platforms where it's currently offered.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the mobile version of Crusaders of the Lost Idols over the years. We look forward to seeing you all in Crusaders on the PC and we hope you enjoy what this extra development time will help us do to the game!

COTLI: Carnage Cup 4 

Put on those cleats and pads, and maybe a mouth guard and helmet, too — the biggest event of the year in CrusaderSports™ is here: CARNAGE CUP 4!!

This year's contenders are exciting to behold, perhaps none so than the newest Crusader to take to the field, a Half-Dwarf/Half-Orc powerhouse by the name of Nargulg Granitehand. Yes folks, you read that right: Granitehand. This guy has been training his whole life for a chance to compete in the most chaotic event in CrusaderSports™, and he's here to win.

New Tier 4 Crusader: Nargulg Granitehand

    Nargulg small for Orc. But Nargulg big for Dwarf.
    Nargulg loves chaos! Nargulg loves fight!
    Crusaders like murder. Crusaders like Carnage Cup.
    Nargulg join Crusaders!
    Nargulg win Carnage Cup!

Nargulg Granitehand is a Half-Dwarf/Half-Orc Crusader, who managed to draw all the anger and fury from both races into a single muscular body of destruction. He increases Click Damage for every Dwarf Crusader and Orc Crusader in the formation, with Nargulg counting twice because he's both!

    Twas the Nate Before Christmas, with a chill in the air,
    a new Crusader arrives — Wrena the Fair!

    she's badass but friendly, joyous and caring,
    she joins the Crusaders, in a holiday pairing,
    from an Elvish enclave, deep in the mountains,
    she journeys outward, destination uncertain,
    to fight for her people, there's no line she won't cross,
    she'll slay all the monsters, just like a boss!
