    Ho ho ho - happy holidays! Also thanks for posting our strategic progress video Infinitron!

    Ok so, this is the last day at the studio for 2016 and we're going to spend the rest of the day doing some D&D and boardgames. Joe had written up a year in review blog post that kinda covers our production from beginning till now, and we're really excited to announce that we will be going into Kickstarter and PAX East in March of next year. So get your party hats on and enjoy the last week of 2016, because the first 2 months of 2017 will some crazy days for the studio. Till then, huge thanks for all the love and advice we've gotten here at codex, as always help us get the good word out and we're always here to answer any questions!

    We're back!!

    Yeah, my bad on the long silence but rest assured Forged of Blood is progressing swimmingly!

    So the big update we want to share is that we have a quick overview of our narrative design covered in our latest blog and we'll be rolling out posts detailing more on the gameplay in the coming weeks as well. We've also got a public facing wiki set up by the guys over at Gamepedia and we'll be updating that as we go along. I'll something else to share tomorrow but for now here's our latest post:

    When the game has enough content and it's in beta, send the codex a preview code and I'll preview it if they are okay with that. All I have to say if that happens is: I am sorry for the poor bastard who will have to proofread and edit what I write.

    Why should I go to a site I never visit? My Expeditions: Viking preview got proofread and got some grammar corrected. It was better for it.

    Ok guys... that time is coming, and it's coming fast. We just got our Kickstarter page approved, our build for PAX is... *just about* there. I just sent out a press release to the media peoples that includes a preview link of our Kickstarter page, and I'll copy and paste it below so you guys can check it out.

    There is also a first look at our opening cinematic on the video! We'd love your comments and help!

    A few notes:
    - Dedicated gameplay video will be coming some time early next week.
    - You can "star" the campaign to be notified when it goes live.

    I will of course update you guys when it's live.

    Cheers ya'll... it's been a crazy few weeks, and I suspect it's only about to get crazier.

    Mammamia! This game is shaping up better than what I anticipated.
    Good luck with the KS, will there be a Codex campaign for this? I'm backing for the closed beta tier! :salute:

    Thank you.

    We are excited to show what we have done. We do have a little of opening night jitter as this would be the first time we show the game to world wide audience. The morale in office seems high as the studio has a lot of energy in the last few days. I am proud of what the team has accomplished in the last 1 year.

    I am a little unclear to what is needed for a Codex campaign as project creator, but certainly, if there is anything we can do to support this wonderful community, we should discuss more.

    Thanks,
    -Joe
