More exclusive rewards to thank our backers! If you’ve already pledged (and are receiving at least one copy of the game as a reward), then enjoy this exclusive stealth outfit for your Arena character.

If you haven’t backed Project Nexus 2 yet, then shame on you! Tsk tsk. But all is not lost - you can still claim the Hank Outfit Pack if you at least pre-order the game by Tuesday, Sept. 16. We’ve also got a bunch of backer prizes to make it worth your while. Click here and check ‘em out.

And to our precious Tumblr followers out there: please support our Thunderclap campaign! This is an easy way for you guys to lend us your support, free of charge, and get the word out there about Project Nexus 2.

Krinkels and Swain have put together a little "Thank You!" to all of you loyal Kickstarter backers out there. You’re getting a Kickstarter exclusive outfit pack of Red and Black Jesus armor…available ONLY to you guys! These outfits are locked and no one else will be able to acquire them…ever!
If you haven’t backed Project Nexus 2 yet, there’s still time! We have 12 days remaining on the Kickstarter campaign, but you can still nab this sweet, mobile, bullet-deflecting armor if you back the project before the end of Sept. 12 (that’s tomorrow!)

  • Question: Are you planning on including a dismemberment system for the sword fights? - trinosan-all
  • Answer:

    We sure are. Check out our new Gameplay features breakdown:

    But remember, nobody’s getting dismembered if our Kickstarter fails. So we need every single person who clicked “YES, I would buy this game” on Steam Greenlight to put their money where their mouth is and back the project!

    Otherwise, in 17 days we’ll all be left scratching our heads and saying “What game”?

Oh, and in other news:

Could not have done it without you. In fact, we (Krinkels and Swain) didn’t do ANYTHING. It was all of YOU who made this possible.

Now let’s upvote that Reddit post, Kickstart the project if you’ve got the $$$ / £££ / ¥¥¥ / etc., and MAKE THIS GAME.

Who are The Employers?  Krinkels and Swain reveal the leadership of a new Madness faction in Project Nexus 2. Check out the update on Kickstarter, and learn about upcoming backer contests where your original character or apocalypse survivor personality might be included in the final game!

The Kickstarter is still live! Come on down and check out the rewards we’re giving to our loyal backers. This is a great way to preorder your copy of the game AND have Beta and Early Access to the finished Project Nexus 2. Plus, haven’t you ever wanted to create your very own Madness boss character? Or design a cheat code for the finished game? Or plan out your own gun, enemy, building, hero, villain, and more?And let’s not forget the Steam Greenlight campaign. I’ve had to change this post twice since starting it, because we’ve already jumped from ranking #56 to #54 out of nearly 1,975 total games trying to be Greenlit in only a few minutes! But to truly be worthy of Valve’s notice we need to get to the Top 10, and we need your vote to make that happen.We all know we’re gonna make it. But let’s make this the game Madness truly deserves to have. It’s fourteen years in the making, and we’ve all waited long enough to put the controller in your hands while Hank destroys everyone who stands in his way,

  • Question: Is it possible to see a release for Madness Day 2014? Probably not, since it's so close, but will there be any special goodies game-wise on the holy blood-spattering holiday? - ryoauditore
  • Answer:

    We’re going to announce all kinds of contests for Kickstarter backers and fans to get their content into the game, and some of these will fall directly in line with Madness Day on Newgrounds.com. The campaign’s last full day will be on Madness Day, Sept 22, in fact :3

    One such contest involves getting player characters into the game’s story mode, thus making them canon to the Madness universe for all time. More as it develops!

    If you haven’t checked out the Kickstarter yet, we can use your support! Now is the time for us all to stand together and bring this game into the world. Without all of you, we, and this game, are nothing!
