Goodbye, old site! You were filthy but we loved you.

Re-designing and cleaning up the M:PN2 logo today, and feeling a little like Dexter while doing it.

  • Question: So the Kickstarter is over, are you continuing to donate by an outside source like Paypel to get to the stretch goals? - papern00b451
  • Answer:

    YES, absolutely! We’ll have a link up on the site very soon, probably next week. projectnexus2.com is getting an overhaul as well.

    We need to honor our Kickstarter backers by making sure all their exclusive bonuses stay exclusive, but we might give out second-stage open beta to all preorders (whereas Kickstarter backers would get early closed beta access). Either way, it will be a way for people to grab rewards they may have missed because they couldn’t donate to the Kickstarter.

Project Nexus 2's Final Day on Kickstarter! Let's close this up strong!

We’re here! It’s Day 29! We’re absolutely, finally, and wholly here!

Project Nexus 2 appears to be fully funded, but we’re still trying to fight through the stretch goals and include as MANY GAME MODES AS POSSIBLE.

If you haven’t backed the project yet, then now is the time.

If you haven’t told everyone you know and forced them to help the project just like you did, then now is the time.

If you think there’s more you can do, despite all the wonderful help you have given us already, then now is the time.

We’re doing this game. It’s happening. Krinkels and Swain are ready to go. Madness is ready to travel the route of Super Meat Boy, and FTL, and Hotline Miami, and every other small indie concept that outgrew its confines and went on to rock the gaming world.

That’s us. No, not Team Madness. ALL of us. You and we. The whole collective. None of us did this alone.

See you peeps on the other side, at the victory line.

This is it! The last full day of Project Nexus 2 Kickstarter action!

We’re so proud of everyone who got behind us for this. The dream is a reality now, as we’ve easily sailed over our goal (despite a couple of fraudulent backers that Kickstarter has not yet removed). Our official REAL total is $60,300 as of this writing. We’ll keep you up to date with the campaign’s progress as we go!

So let’s wrap up today in two ways:

  1. Pledge to Project Nexus 2 and back the project! We need to get a many of those stretch goals as possible and we’re only going to have a complete game with your backing.
  2. Go enjoy Madness Day on Newgrounds! This is the perfect time to celebrate the origins of Madness and see what it means to the rest of the world. It is so much more than just a cartoon by Krinkels. It belongs to all of us…and the Kickstarter proves it.

See you guys tomorrow, and let’s make today count.

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”?
