    Tags: Infamous Quests; Steven Alexander

    Who's Steve I hear you ask. And it's a good question. Here's the dramatic tale:
    Long story short, things didn't work out and now Steve needs to harvest the organs of another. This time a woman his wife.

    But who is Steve?

    Steve is known as Blackthorne here on the Codex and is a Creator/Designer at Infamous Quests, where he was as the Writer/Director/Producer of Quest for Infamy and Order of the Thorne.

    At least that's what's in his signature.

    We're doing our own fundraiser for Steve to help cover the costs. As a special incentive, we are giving everyone who donates to this campaign extra potato and a special forum badge because who doesn't love digital items that don't actually cost us anything to deliver?

    As an extra special bonus, Steve has also promised that if it doesn't work out, we'll get to keep the kidney!

    We'll be completing our fundraiser in the next couple of weeks (1 Nov), so if you haven't donated yet, go ahead and do so before you miss out on sweet kidney action.

    UPDATE:

    Steve is throwing in anyone who donates to this campaign a copy of "Quest for Infamy: Roehm to Ruin" when it comes out. On any platform you like.

    Peter Ohlmann of Ceres Games would also like to help. If we pass $3,000 he's throwing in a Codex guildhouse into his upcoming game. And if we pass $3,500, that guildhouse will have 10 named NPCs chosen by (or named after) the top 10 donors.

    Because of these two new offers, we're extending the fundraiser for another 2 weeks until 17 Nov.

    NOTE: Because of our recent switch to https, some donations weren't being recorded in the tally. That should have been fixed so that all donations from now on will be properly recorded (PM me if yours isn't). I'll be going through the donations received to PayPal to add any of those that were missed.

    Nice cover-up for getting funds to back Realms Beyond kickstarter campaign. Obviously the codex secret society should then be named Order of the Thorne. ;)

    Seriously, though, good luck, Blackthorne .

    Unfortunately, there have been some sad developments since this fundraiser came up and Steve has been hospitalized. Reposting from the other thread, for those who aren't up to speed:

    So, if things don't work out, do we gather in secret to devour the kidney?
    I know many recipes.

    The pixel hunts in this thing are way too extreme (I literally can't find the money that you are supposed to use to pay for the kidney). I'll wait for someone to make a let's play or write a walkthrough.

    Guys, I think this can be done so much cheaper.

    [​IMG]
    Just look at this beautiful hospital! It's stunning. And watched over by the gods! It's like a temple of healing.

    [​IMG]
    See? In their lobby they prominently feature the question, "Would you go?" in bold, red letters. As if the answer could be anything but a resounding YES.

    And, I bet they'll do it for just the money Codex has raised so far.

    Money's coming through to PayPal account. For some reason some aren't being recorded in the callback on the Codex.

    Will investigate.

    Hey Guys,

    I got home from the hospital yesterday. It's been an experience; I start in-center dialysis on Monday, and that's what I'm doing for the foreseable future. My blood pressure is still sky high, too, despite all the meds they have me on. Hopefully I'll be able to recover, it's been a shitshow for sure. Thanks to everyone who checked in and supported. I'll keep updating when I can, and I promise I'll keep making games when I can and I will make the pixel hunts way more obscure and hard now because this is what you fuckers deserve. Hah!

    But seriously, what the hell, this all sucks and I hate dialysis.
