    With an almost traditional delay, we're officially launching a BattleTech Codexian fundraiser! This time our initial goal is at just $1000 - which will net us a nice package of a bunch of raffle-able stuff as well as some things to make our entry truly memorable and game-defining:
    Finally, and perhaps most importantly, everyone participating in the fundraiser at $25 or higher will get a copy of the game just like with Shadowrun: Hong Kong.

    Unfortunately it would take a lot of work for HBS guys to be able to offer us extra rewards, so things like Backer Atlas Mech from the $50 tier are off the table.

    Still, this is a great deal of supporting and getting the game and salting that one Twitter guy's wounds again, so go fundin'!

    Once again, for any questions or issues with pledges, contact Angthoron.

    Donated $25, just enough to get a copy of the game. Not the biggest fan of HBS around here, but hey, I'd buy it on release anyway simply because it's BattleTech.

    It's okay, the world will end sooner than the presumed lifetime's worth kicks in. Besides, maybe one day before Gehenna we'll have some extra services that you'll be able to spend those potatoes on.

    I dunno, Infinitron, what's with this?

    Weeeell... Codex only links to RPG's.

    Deciding to raise funds for a non-rpg 'tactical turn-based combat' game from a company whose previous attempts at said combat style suck... That's a different matter entirely, or so it seems.
    (Although, at least in this game, cooldown timers could at least make some sense.)

    I'm slightly disturbed and excited by that possibility. Nevertheless I'm still going to back this, eventually.

    I put in $25, but Angthoron, if you can get us the beta keys I'll pull the rest of my monies from the general kickstarter and hand it over.

    I'm in. I'd end up getting this game eventually anyway because Battletech, might as well also put my money to a good cause like pissing off twitterrers. And potatoes.

    Most likely won't happen. I'll check, but most likely it'll be a no for "everyone gets a beta key".

    Also, 1/3rd left. Not bad.

    I will be fair, I was going to pledge, but the fact its only a 4 mech lance really bothers me. What they are aiming for this game will probably disappoint as did the AI in shadowrun games.

    Probably won't play this game (or maybe I will), but I pledged for the nylon jacket. Would probably cost just about as much to commission a custom one of those.

    And that gets us funded. Nekot is the top donor for two Codex fundraisers in a row!

    The bad news: none of the rewards above $25 are actually available to Codex backers, so you won't get the jacket from HBS. The possibly good news: one jacket is included in our $1000 tier reward. It's technically meant for the raffle, but DarkUnderlord might be willing to budge since you funded a quarter of the fundraiser.
