    Tags: Codex Dead State Campaign; Dead State; Kickstarter

    Given how successful we were with Wasteland 2, having gathered more than $10k for the game, we thought why the hell not raise more money for more Kickstarter games in order to spread the Codex love?

    *** DONATE HERE ***

    So, we're trying to raise $5,000 for the Dead State Zombie Survival RPG made by our friends Annie and Vault Dweller Brian Mitsoda. Here are the Special Rewards the Codex will receive for our cash (courtesy of Annie Mitsoda):

    $250 - 15 digital copies, Codex thanked (in aggregate) in the Special Thanks in the credits
    $350 - personal info in game #1 ("Be memorialized somewhere in the game - name and key personal information incorporated into the world of Dead State")
    $475 - personal info #2
    $500 - text message #1 ("We will include your zombie apocalypse text message - up to 250 characters - written by you in the game as part of collectible in-game data.")
    $550 - text message #2
    $600 - ad poster for the "RPG Codex" store (designed by our logo artist, Brandon, and placed somewhere in the game)
    $750 - character portrait!
    $800 - zombie portrait!
    $850 - equipment item (i.e. not a weapon or armor)
    $1250 - game morale item (board or videogame - CAN YOU SAVE CODEXIA FROM THE HORDES OF TROLLS? etc.)
    $1500 - 3-piece morale item set (novels? comics?)
    $2000 - Zombie apocalypse story (Work with Brian Mitsoda to tell your "zombie apocalypse story" which will show up as a collectible piece of story data for every player to see.)
    $3000 - 3-piece set is upgraded to 5 pieces!
    $3500 - Codexian statue!
    $5000 - The RPG Codex - full game store location, complete with posters, applicable decorations, and a list of the contributors in some format​

    As per usual we have no idea what the details are of what we'll have in-game but I'm suspecting it will be some kind of statue...

    *** DONATE HERE ***

    If you'd like to contribute you MUST follow the above link. Any purchases made using the usual forum upgrades option on the user account upgrade page will not be taken into account. This is because it's too fucking hard to sort out ad-free status and what-not using that system at the moment.

    Make sure you give us your forum username when you donate so we can add your name to the list of donators and work out forum goodies.

    If we don't raise enough cash, then we'll go for the highest reward we can get, with anything left-over going towards hookers and booze server upgrades. If the Kickstarter campaign fails completely, all funds raised will go towards keeping the Codex alive.

    Update 15th June: We've passed 10%. I've edited the content item to include further details of the special deal DoubleBear are offering the Codex.

    Update 5th July

    [​IMG]

    Well, we didn't quite get to the statue but we got some goods in there to horribly defile the game in memory of the Codex. Thanks to all those who donated, check the article below for the full list of donors - the top 15 of which will be getting one of our free copies!

    If there's any combat demo or video released, I'd probably be able to make up my mind on whether to put cash in or not. The weapons update they did was interesting enough. Pitch fork with pinning move, different crit. multiplier. I'd like to see them in action.

    How long will this stay open? I'll only be paid by the end of June and I'm already eating fucking Sainsbury's instant noodles, 11p a pack.

    25$ donated. *Sigh*

    Also, fuck you DU. Those funds were destined to be converted into a delicious pizza. Now it's to support some shitty indie vaporwaregame.

    This game is on kickstarter? Guess I throw some money at them on their page. As for this fundraising, sorry Codex, I've ran out of money.

    There should be a Codex poster in a classroom. "Sex ed. guest lecture on 5/3. Arpegus K. from Odex online university to talk about transsexualism. And fisting. Free sandwiches!"

    Seconded. TB combat without full control of party members makes me wary, but party orders might be interesting. At the moment I am not donating.

    For you guys we can do something especial. What about an RPG store to loot in the game called "The RPG Codex", where you can find videogames and tabletop RPGs (we actually have those as luxury items that bring up morale). It will also have some other references to this prestigious place ;)
