The official Dev Blog for Krinkels' and Swain's latest Madness sequel

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!

  • Question: Ngh i want to donate something but I cant. Hope you dont get mad at me. x.x - darkcooks
  • Answer:

    We’ll have a bunch of ways people can help, including sharing the Kickstarter page, and being involved in Thunderclap (we’ll provide the links when it’s time), which sets your Facebook or social media to post about the game at the same time as hundreds of other people, so that it trends all at once. Even that will get the word out, and help!

Three days til the world comes to an end. And when it does, wouldn’t you rather be the one pulling the trigger?

Do you charge the front door like a boss? Or take out the guards and sneak in through the back? Or perhaps you’d just like to blast a hole in the wall and make your own door.
You decide.
