New Weekend Buff! Evil Inc. 

The Summer Games have been besieged by evil once more, but maybe this year you can play for the other team. Maybe it's fun being evil?

The following Crusaders will get a buff this weekend starting from today until 12 pm PDT on Monday August 28th.

  • Veronica, the Android Archer - Precise Aim ability +200%
  • Sasha, the Fierce Warrior - Bulwark ability +200%
  • Bubba, the Swimming Orc - Synchronized Swimmming +200%
  • Fire Phoenix - All DPS +200%
  • Merci, the Mad Wizard - Deflect Evil ability +200%



Also, check out the limited-time Evil Jeweled Chests that contain equipment for the five Crusaders above!

(Please note: The chest will only contain gear for Veronica and Bubba if you've unlocked them. You can purchase the Golden Epic for Bubba, even if you don't have him, and it will show up on him once you earn him.)

Princess' Pool Party 2017 

Now that all of the holiday festivities are behind us, it's time to look forward to the next fun event: it's time to book a vacation to escape the January blues.

Starting today and running through to January 17th at Noon PST, The Princess is heading abroad to host her annual pool party event. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Pilot Pam and Queen Siri to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Bernard the Bartender and Princess Val the Mermaid.

New Tier Two Crusader: Bernard the Bartender.

Bernard the Bartender shares the same slot as Detective Kaine. He includes some fun formation abilities such as Tips!. This ability has a base 20% chance that you'll receive 20% more gold from an enemy when it's killed. The chance can be increased with other upgrades and gear.

At level 400, Bernard unlocks Girl's Night where every female Crusader in the formation adds an additive 20% boost to the Tips! bonus gold.

New Tier Two Crusader: Princess Val the Mermaid.

Princess Val the Mermaid also packed some fun new abilities. At level 25, she unlocks Royal Blessing. With it, all adjacent Crusaders are healed by 20% per tick, split between the number of affected Crusaders. This is boosted by other upgrades as well. At level 400 her Animal Kingdom ability increases the global DPS by +50% if there are more animal Crusaders than human Crusaders in the formation.

After you've completed the first two new Tier Two objectives for Bernard and Val, there are three more objectives to keep you busy.

New Tier Two Objective: The Great Migration.

The Great Migration sees the Crusaders beset by migrating birds determined to bring your holiday plans crashing to the ground. These fowl foul instantly kill any Crusader they hit in a puff of blood and feathers all the way to area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: Girl's Getaway.

Girl's Getaway! forces you to only select female Crusaders alongside Bernard because what kind of a holiday doesn't have alcohol, especially when there's a long way to go to area 450.

New Tier Two Objective: Don't Get Sunburnt.

The final new Tier Two objective is Don't Get Sunburnt. The hot objective sees the Crusaders DPS suffer in the sun's rays. The longer the Crusaders are in the formation earning XP, the less DPS they do, making reaching area 500 quite a challenge!

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Pool Party Silver and Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until January 17th at Noon PST to complete the event before it's time to fly home and spend another year only dreaming of sunny beaches and lazy pool days.

New Event! Princess' Pool Partay 

Now that the Holidays have come and gone, the Princess has decided it's time to stave off the post-Christmas blues with a vacation. Packing up her pointy hat, she's booked herself on holiday to warmer climes to get away from the winter weather.

Starting today and running through to January 19th at Noon PST, our new event Princess' Pool Party will kick off the New Year with an international 'vacay'.

Two new event Crusaders are available to unlock. Carrying on the vacation theme, you can recruit Pam the Pilot and the exotic Queen Siri to join your Crusaders.

Pilot Pam



As ever, recruiting them isn't going to be easy. Pam will turn on the 'seatbelt' warning, depressing the DPS abilities of Crusaders around her in the 'cabin' of the new plane formation reducing their abilities by 90%.

What's more, if you don't protect Pam from the deluge of monsters and Pam is killed, your formation is wiped knocking you back to the previous area.

Queen Siri asserts her matriarchy on the Crusaders, keeping the males in the formation in check by debuffing them all by 25% for the duration of the flight to area 100.

Once you can complete the first two objectives and recruit the new Crusaders to your cause, you can replace Jim the Lumberjack and King Reginald IV. Among Pilot Pam's upgrades, you'll find Focused Teamwork when she's level 50, which buffs herself and one other Crusader by 100%. Queen Siri brings the ability to increase all female Crusaders power by 100%.

Queen Siri



There are three additional objectives too. Wing-clipped requires you to get to level 150 without the 'wings' and 'tail' of the airplane formation. Open-bar sees the Crusaders get access to the drink trolley, getting drunk and randomly passing out, canceling out their DPS contribution to the formation and their buffs. Three's A Crowd is just a bit of fun where we limit you to only having three Crusaders in your formation at any one time.

Look out for a special guest appearance by one of our favourite YouTube celebrities, MrBayEasy, who has been producing a Let's Play series for Crusaders for some time now. Check out his channel, give his Crusaders videos the 'thumbs up' and subscribe today.

And with that, pack your beach clothes, suntan lotion and a great big bushwhacking stick and prepare for the holiday of a lifetime. Bon voyage.

#1 Idle Game on Kongregate.com 

Victoria, British Columbia, 4 August 2015 - Today, veteran games studio Codename Entertainment announced the global launch of Crusaders of the Lost Idols, the next evolution of idle gaming. The game debuted at number 1 in the Idle Games charts on Kongregate.com - the largest dedicated web gaming site in the world.

Crusaders of the Lost Idols puts players in charge of a band of fighters set in the fantasy world of Bush Whacker 2. Their mission is to form a mighty group of adventurers to take on waves of enemies as they rid the world of evil-doers, bad guys, terrible T-Rex, irritable escargot and Panda Claw. Yes, that’s right, a giant panda with lobster claws.

In a unique twist to the new Idle Games category, Crusaders is the only game to include a unique formation feature. Players must now learn to master the art of organising their band into the most powerful formation possible.

The position of each fighter in relation to his or her companions will have a significant effect their attack strength. Combined with their equipped buffs and upgrades, this unique feature adds deep complexity to the idle genre. Another key feature of the game is the chance to earn the chests filled with rewards. As your heroes clear each level, they'll be matched-up against a boss character. If your Crusaders win, they'll be rewarded with gold, buffs and equipment to level-up their abilities.

Only those players who develop the best combination of formation, characters, buffs and upgrades will survive.

“We’re delighted to enable gamers around the world to play our latest game,” said Eric Jordan, CEO of Codename Entertainment. “Our beta player feedback was very positive with some players saying they were losing sleep because they were so hooked. We’re looking forward to more players trying Crusaders and also losing sleep because they can’t stop playing.”

Currently the top-rated Idle Game on Kongregate.com, the game is available now:
