Nox Archaist Kickstarter May 2nd, 2019

The 6502 Workshop team is launching a Kickstarter campaign on May 2, 2019 to produce a collector's edition of Nox Archaist!

Nox Archaist is a brand new tile based 8-bit RPG inspired by classics like Ultima and Bard's Tale.  It is written for the Apple II computer, but is easily playable on any modern Mac or PC via emulation.  It's been designed and hand-coded from scratch by a team of awesome programmers and artists, and even a few legends from the golden era of video games back in the 80s.

We really appreciate the interest and encouragement from the community and we are confident that with your help the upcoming campaign will be successful.

Pledge rewards will include lots of cool feelies with professional artwork, such as:

  • Full color collector’s game box
  • Cloth map
  • Printed manual
  • Unique game artifacts
  • 5.25" Floppy disks and a USB stick for emulators

Our goal is to give you the experience of buying a game off the shelf of your local computer store in the late 80s, and also give you the chance to be involved in the game design and success of a modern Apple II game!

We hope to earn your support!

  1. Sounds great! I just learned about this, but I would have backed the original proposal had I known about this sooner. Unfortunately, I guess I'm not checking A2Central updates frequently enough! Still looking forward for something to come of the efforts anyway!

  4. Thanks for your ongoing interest! The Kickstarter reboot is progressing well. While some team members continue development on Nox Archaist, others have we been working on finding ways to improve marketing, rewards and reduce costs overall so that our Kickstarter will have an achievable funding goal and lower tier prices.

    The new campaign is largely ready to go and we're evaluating a number of considerations in determining a launch date. Rest assured, the Kickstarter campaign to produce the collectors edition will happen!
