About

 LUGU is a story-telling card game that all ages can enjoy. Three or more players use decks of abstract pictures to create a story together while competing for the highest score. You can discover ludicrous locations, crazy characters and magnificent monsters! How will the cards inspire you?

You can view the introduction video above for a visual demonstration of how to play LUGU. The written rules can be viewed below.

LUGU CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT YOUR HELP.

After a year of design and testing, LUGU is now ready for production. The game is 100% complete and waiting to be sent to the printers. Your contributions will allow us to professionally print the cards and packaging and deliver LUGU directly to you. We have chosen to manufacture LUGU with Cartamundi, one of the leading card and game manufacturers in the world. This will guarantee a high quality product with a reliable production schedule.

YOU WILL BE AMONGST THE FIRST TO RECEIVE AND PLAY THIS GAME.

This is the first print run of LUGU. You will be the first to receive and play this game before it goes on sale. You will also have to opportunity to earn some bonuses through the rewards that will never be available again. Your pledges will help shape the future of LUGU by helping us to achieve the stretch goals.

YOU WILL BE SUPPORTING THE INDY GAMES COMMUNITY.

Card Tower Games is a new independent games publisher. If LUGU is a success, it will allow us to complete and publish more and more games. We have some fantastic games currently in development, and the success of LUGU will help Card Tower Games to become a unique feature of the gaming community.

 Card Tower Games is a new independent games publishing company based in London, UK. I founded this company so that I could share my games with the world.

I have been designing games for my entire life and have built up such a large catalogue of games, I thought it was time to share them with the world. My experience in the independent video games industry gave me insight into the impact new start up companies can have in the creative industries. I also strongly believe that new independent companies in the marketplace help to keep the industry fresh and interesting.

If LUGU is a success, I hope to release many more games through Card Tower Games.

Thank you for your support.

Risks and challenges

LUGU is Card Tower Game's first release, and it has been an exciting experience. There are always risks involved in large projects like this but I have minimised these risks to the largest extent possible.

LUGU is completely designed and tested and 100% ready for printing. I am just £5000 and one click away from sending the game to the manufacturers.

I have chosen to manufacture the game with Cartamundi. They are a leading games production company with a fantastic reputation. I have chosen Cartamundi to ensure an extremely good quality end product and a reliable production schedule.

It will take 3-4 weeks after confirmation of the designs with Cartamundi to print the game. I should then receive the game by the end of August. I have made November the expected delivery date to cover any unforeseen problems. The extra time and manufacturer reliability means that I can realistically guarantee that your game will be delivered to your door at or before November 2014.
