About

GOTY: Game of the Year allows you to get under the skin of a game developer, trying to survive the complex and sometimes frustrating process of making video games. As designers we thought that it would be interesting to portray the misadventures of this job in a card game through funny and unexpected situations of real-life development, giving you a different perspective of the industry.

In GOTY you have to create a project by completing the tasks of a certain game. In order to do so you must bring together the best professionals and collect assets through development with luck and wit.

Are you ready to become a legendary developer and create the Game Of The Year?

Basic info

 
                  
  • 58 development cards
  • 30 job cards
  • 12 game cards
  • 100 mini-sized asset cards
  • game manual
  • artbook

GOTY the artbook

Every GOTY box will include a 64 page retro-artbook with tons of character designs, development situations and concepts of different genres & games realized during the creative process.

In addition, we'll add a special thanks section with all the names of the backers that made this game possible.

Game cards

Each player has one Game Card that represents the project they are working on. All of them have been designed with detailed Pixel art illustrations representing all-time classics of the game industry.

Job cards

Assemble your team by hiring (or firing) employees for each profession. Workers have a set of defenses depending on their level, but keep an eye on their cost: experienced professionals demand more coins, which means less money to invest on the rest of the team.

Do you prefer to hire a lot of unstable employees and have access to more assets or expensive ones to advance on a certain task slowly but surely?

Asset cards

Asset cards represent the progress of the tasks needed to complete a Game Card. But beware! Reaching the asset level required on a task doesn't mean that job is finished! If you don’t have one dev-lock card or a golden employee your rivals can destroy your work!

Development cards

Dev cards give you the chance to attack other players, defend against them or boost your development. Players can have a maximum of 3 to create their own strategy.

Game modes

  • VS Mode: battle against the other players using DEV cards to attack or protect yourself.
  • Friendly Mode: compete against each other to see who gets the GOTY first. You must draw a DEV card each turn that will affect you instanly.
  • Solo Mode: 1 player experience where you develop against the clock.
  • Shipments within Spain have a cost of 5€
  • Shipments to United States and the European Union have a cost of 10€
  • Shipments to other countries have a cost of 12€

This game will be shipped to avoid extra custom charges worldwide, so we are 90% sure that the delivery will pass customs outside the EU. If you have any doubt related to shipment to your country send us a message and we'll contact our delivery service to find a solution.

We are Asthree Works, developers of the game Paradise Lost: First Contact. Thanks to Kickstarter and the amazing support of our backers we were able to became full-time devs and go through the thrilling and stressful adventure that is developing a video game.

During this process we came up with the idea of GOTY, our second Kickstarter campaign focused on video games. This project is inspired by the complications that can arise during the making of a game and how to anticipate them as far as possible. Our first project is still in development and is a perfect example of the setbacks and problems that a lot of independent devs experience through the creation of a video game.

Risks and challenges

Not long ago we started designing the rules and illustrations in our spare time as a way of distraction, trying to disconnect a bit from our daily work and stay fresh with original & creative ideas. After a few rounds of GOTY with our friends and family we realized that this hobby could become something real, so we decided to publish a new campaign to share this experience with video game and tabletop passionates alike.

As graphic designers we have skills related to the world of printing and publishing, so we know how to handle this kind of work. On the other hand we've never had the opportunity to realize a project of these dimensions, so we decided to work with a renowned company here in Spain, specialized in the manufacture of card games.

Since the game is already done, we could say that the main risk we face is related with delays in the manufacturing and shipment processes. Trying to anticipate these problems we've planned for a release date that includes this kind of unforeseen events in the calendar, so if things go as planned the project should be delivered on time or even earlier.
