Hey everyone. I am enjoying Codex! However, I’ve heard some people complain that individual matches take a long time to complete. I don’t agree! Most seem to agree that matches take about an hour to finish, sometimes more. Edit: I don’t know that that’s necessarily too long, or anything; I’m okay with it, but shortening that time does mean more Codex matches in a given lifetime!
For this reason (and for many other reasons) I would really love if there was a digital version of the game, which I expect would play much faster. Not only that, but even with a bot with really bad AI you could at least test out certain builds and stuff, and getting feedback on balance changes for future editions (assuming that that’s planned, of course) becomes much faster with a digital version.
Does anyone know if there is already a digital version of Codex being worked on? I understand the truly insane costs associated with producing a digital game, so I completely understand if the resources just aren’t there.
If that’s the case, I would happily help support a digital version via a Kickstarter. Sirlin Games’ record on Kickstarter is pretty good, so I’m pretty sure it’d be possible to raise the money for it. But then again, maybe that is too “narrow” of a thing to pitch on Kickstarter?
Perhaps the answer is to just make sure that Codex is super successful so that funding a digital version isn’t a problem.
*One solution to that might be a fast-ish timer, but there’s also so much to do on a turn that I feel like that would maybe be annoying and you’d feel rushed. Anyway, that’s sort of beside the point of my post.
