Three roommates get sucked into a world of espionage and danger when they steal a TV that secretly contains a device for granting superpowers. But will the allure of the supernatural, and the dangers of the people tracking down the stolen device, be enough to convince them to get up off the couch?
Following the wild popularity of The Codex, Edgeworks released a feature-length prequel entitled The Heretic. It explored the backstories of the characters from the original series, and answered many questions left over from the finale. The Heretic was very successful in its own right, garnering tens of millions of hits and numerous press features, and remains one of the first and only machinima webseries to include fully-integrated computer animation sequences.
The Halo machinima phenomenon that launched Edgeworks Entertainment, The Codex garnered over 90 million hits and was featured on MTV, NPR, the Dallas Observer, the Houston Press, XBOX World 360 Magazine in Britain, and the professional blog of the Editor-in-Chief of WIRED Magazine, Chris Anderson. The Codex won numerous awards, was featured in innumerable online features and interviews, appeared at several conventions nationwide, and is still cited as one of the best Halo machinima series ever made.
