Each chest contains 5 awesome items, hand-picked by the team here at Codename Entertainment to help you in your adventures. If you get goodies in those chests for content you have not yet unlocked, then your account will retain those items and save them for you to enjoy when you have unlocked those systems in the game!

Once you have claimed at least four daily Birthday chests, you unlock an exclusive Witchlight Delina skin, an epic Delina feat, and 5 gold chests!

    Jingle Jam 2016 & Honeydew the Dwarf 

    We are delighted to announce that Crusaders of the Lost Idols has been included in the Yogscast Jingle Jam 2016 Humble Bundle.

    For the whole month of December, the Yogscast team have organized to give away 31 Steam games and DLC add-ons as part of their annual Jingle Jam event with all the proceeds going directly to charity!

    This year’s charities are:




    The first 75,000 people to donate $30 or more will get all 31 games, including our very own Legendary DLC pack for Crusaders of the Lost Idols.

    To celebrate we've also created a special boss monster, Honeydew the Dwarf. For those of you unfamiliar with Honeydew, he is based on Yogscast celebrity and long-standing YouTuber Simon Lane.



    Honeydew the Dwarf.


    Simon Lane.

    Honeydew can be found in the Amusement Park of Doom campaign. You'll find Honeydew starting at area 40, and he'll appear every 100 areas from then on.

    Please help support a great cause and, of course, enjoy the hilarious shenanigans from the Yogscast team this holiday period.

    You can watch the festivities live on Twitch here, and you should check out all their YouTube channels by going here.
