Weekly AMA with Erika about Crusaders! 

Hail Crusaders!

Thank you for making Crusaders of the Lost Idols an unexpectedly massive success.

It's been a pleasure hanging out in chat with you and interacting with the players. Instant feedback like that helps us provide the best game we can.

However, the Crusaders community has so many chat rooms, that it's hard to get to them all within a week, and our community management efforts have become strained.

In order to serve you better, we're going to experiment with a new approach.

Instead of Erika spending time in chat at unannounced points throughout the week, she will be available on the Crusaders of the Lost Idols subreddit for a 1 hour AMA every week. She will do her best to answer your questions, but she doesn't know everything.

If you can't be online to talk to her live during that hour, you can still always post questions and suggestions on the Crusaders forums on Codename, Steam and Kongregate, the subreddit, and request technical support through the ticket system, as usual.

Starting the week of April 12th, Erika will be on the Crusaders of the Lost Idols subreddit every Tuesday from 10-11am Pacific Time.

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.
