Nox says: Only a fool would allow my origin episode to go un-dubbed!

Nox, is that really any way to talk to your dear fans and backers? They're giving us a lot of help to make your rise to international fame a reality.

Nox: Hmm, with access to more countries, I could collect more Wakfu from these unsuspecting insects... these unsuspecting... fans. It wouldn't be hard to sneak a Noxine or two into their packages, they would never suspect... It would be more efficient... Very well! You may continue.

Please excuse him, he can get a little impatient. He might be a master of time, but he never seems to have enough, does he?

He wasn't always like this, you know. Yes, he's changed over the years. Why, if you were to see him as he was back in those days... you wouldn't even recognize him. Here, we'll show you...

Yes... things were different back then...

We admit, this trailer is not only here to give you a glimpse into the secret past of Nox, but also to inspire you to share this project with your friends so we can get to our next stretch goal! And as a little additional incentive, if we can reach the next stretch goal, we will unlock a new add-on, the Making of Wakfu Artbook Special Edition for Episode 27.

The artbook will take you through the process of creating this unique episode with interviews and comments from Lead Traditional Animator, Michio Mihara (Key animator on projects like The Cat Returns, Princess Mononoke, Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade, Millennium Actress, and many more), the director, Eunyoung Choi (who directed another successful Kickstart project, Kick-Heart), as well as Character Designer Masaaki Yuasa (Cat Soup, Samurai Champloo, Crayon Shin-Chan), and the rest of the episode team.

To whet your appetite even more, here's some excerpts from the artbook.

This artbook, like all the other Making of Wakfu Artbooks, is presented in both French and English at the same time.

We hope we'll be able to offer this beautiful artbook to you soon, if we should reach our second stretch goal and unlock dubbing for special episode #27: Noximilian the Watchmaker. As always, thank you for your kind and generous support and your wonderful comments! We wouldn't be here without you!

      I wouldn't mind a noxine in my package...
      I wasn't gonna buy any extra art books... but an art book for ep.27 is tempting.

      :y I personally wouldn't mind a noxine being slipped into my carepackage..I always loved their designs to begin with

      It's weird that you mention Samurai Champloo which Yuasa did only one scene for and not something like, Mindgame, which is perhaps his greatest work and one of the best anime movies ever made.

      I hope that the art boooks are made available for separate purchase one day, outside of the Kickstarter. Or are they already, and I've just never actually checked?

      Is the nox artbook going to be purley add on or is it also going to be melded into the $400 all artbook tier?

      I don't really like the surreal visual style, but the Nox origin episode is great. It really adds a lot of depth to him as a character.

      I don't doubt that we'll reach the next goal. I'll be looking forward to this artbook. :)
