Even More New Objectives!  


This week we have three new objectives for you for the World's Wake and Ghostbeard's Greed campaigns.

Inflation



In the new objective Inflation, the Crusaders have fallen on hard times. Money is tight and finding good Crusaders these days is even harder. All costs for Crusaders to level up has been massively increased. Plus the monsters are feeling the pinch and are dropping far less gold that usual. Can you beat the economic downturn?

Ms. Fizzle's Field Trip



They say "never work with children or animals". Both have a tendency to make things difficult and unpredictable. Unfortunately for you the resident teacher, Ms. Fizzle, has decided that now is a good time for the Crusaders to take her class on a field trip.

In Ms. Fizzle's Field Trip, the merry band of adventurers plough their way through monsters with five children taking up valuable slots in your formation. What's more, they will change position randomly every ten areas! Just promise to get the kids back to the parents in one piece.

2,000 Levels For All



The final new objective, 2,000 Levels for All, is a leveling game. You must get each of the 20 Crusaders to level 2,000 to earn those precious red rubies!

Crusaders at MosaiCon 2015 



Headline Sponsor



MosaiCon 2015 was Nanaimo, British Columbia's first gaming convention and the Codename team attended armed with PCs to demo Crusaders of the Lost Idols. Eric, Clive and Andrew managed the Codename booth and talked with fans about the game, as well as gaming and geek culture in general.

Cosplay Contest



Local enthusiasts arrived in force. The organizers had a jam-packed itinerary for the day at Vancouver Island University campus located just outside Nanaimo, BC. There was a cosplay contest that saw some awesome work by various attendees. Top prizes were two top-of-the-line PCs for the best cosplayers. There was also a League of Legends tournament where one lucky team walked away with $1,000.

Our Booth



It was an honour to meet everyone who came to see Crusaders. The response to the game after a demo and walkthrough by the team was very gratifying. We explained the game, showcased our unique formation feature and even hinted at upcoming announcements. The attendees were passionate about games whether familiar with idle games or not and by the time they left the booth we had a few new converts under our wings.

Eric Demos Crusaders



Thank you to those of you who were able to attend. We love any opportunity to meet and talk with you about any of our games and meet you face-to-face. We're looking forward to being at next year's event.

Crusaders of the Lost Idols: New Objectives! 


We're getting nostalgic this week with our new objectives. You know that feeling you get when pulling on a favourite old sweater or catching up with a close friend? We've just created the Crusaders version of that.

Around the World revisits the World's Wake campaign with a challenge to reach area 360 using the original formation. You'll get a warm fuzzy feeling as you relentlessly dismember monsters area after area.

Dual Descent is proof that adventures are more fun with friends. As a twist to Lone Descent, you can now smash your way through the Descent into Darkness campaign with another Crusader. We're looking forward to seeing who you choose and what formation you use.

Dual Descent



PAARRRfection. You'd better create a swear jar for this objective. You may as well make some money from the tirade of expletives that will emanate from your mouth. You must beat 200 areas without a single wipe to claim those precious, precious rubies.

PAARRRfection



We don't blame you if you can't remember all the various campaign objectives and we've decided to help you out. We've added a new Campaign Objectives screen for you to keep a track of your progress and check out new updates. Just click on the current objective and select 'See All Objectives.'

New Ghostbeard's Greed Campaign 


"Avast me hearties!" That's pirate for 'you should stop what you're doing and pay attention'.

The Crusaders have decided to take a break from Crusading for the third campaign and hit the tavern. However, getting rowdy over rum means that our intrepid band of adventurers are press-ganged into a life of danger on the high seas by the navy.

Fighting pirates, being shipwrecked and washing ashore on a creepy island infested with black magic are just some of the adventures awaiting the erstwhile Crusaders. What's more, we are introducing two new formations.

The Box Formation



Three of the objectives require mastering an all-new box-shaped 13-man formation.

New X Formation

However, in true pirate fashion, for one objective, "X Marks the Spot", we've been devious to make it a requirement to use an X formation.



If you can survive these objectives, the reward is great! A little-known sea shanty tells the story of a great treasure of doubloons located in a cave on the island. Leave the landlubbers at the dock. It'll require good sea legs and seasoned seadog to claim the treasure.

Share your sea stories on the forums!
