Retro Gaming Cards! - A Game of Loading Screens

€1,503

103

Retro Gaming cards is a card game for 1 to 5 players inspired by the aesthetics and functionality of the first 80's PC games. You can consider it a filler, memory eurogame. 

In Retro Gaming Cards! players must try to pair up the different loading screens, uncovering two of the cards and getting as many pairs as possible to get their game working! But, beware, as many errors (and possible solutions) may appear in your way!

In Retro Gaming Cards! not only will you have to memorize the position of the cards (Loading Screen cards) in order to complete the loading bar of your old videogame, but you will also have to try and ruin your friends' game! 

Apart from the Loading Screen cards, there are cards with negative effects, such as: losing your turn (Error cards), losing the game (Game Over cards), or even both (Bomb! cards). Of course, there are other types of cards with positive effects, such as wild cards (Hacked cards) or cards that allow players to cancel the effect of certain negative cards (Antivirus cards). Just be sure to pick them up before your rivals do!

Risks and challenges

Even if this is the first project that I have launched on Kickstarter, I would like to set a little background before getting into the risks.

Retro Gaming Cards! is an idea that I started to work on a couple of years ago. I spent many hours designing the cards and the mechanics, and then playing with my family and friends. Everyone liked the game a lot and I had plans to show it to different enterprises, but after some time I just decided to focus on my studies and my job, and I completely forgot about it. It is not but a couple of months ago that I decided to support a game on KS, and I was really amazed by the amount of incredible games getting launched everyday. I started backing other games, comics, and all short of incredible stuff and so, one day, I asked to myself: why shouldn't you give it a try?

Ever since, I have been working on this project (as well as another game that will be released over the next year, but this other one requires a greater amount of hard work and effort). For Retro Gaming Cards! I have done new arts from scratch, designed and added new cards, and playtested it for months. And, after all this hard work, I can say without any kind of doubt that this is a game that provides hours and hours of fun to boardgames experts and beginners.

As I mentioned before, this project is an almost finished one. I have already printed a small amount of copies of the game and everything, from art design to shipping or making of the copies, has been studied and tested. Therefore, by backing this project you can be sure that you are on the safe side.

However, if the project is funded, not only will you help me to turn those many hours of hard work into something useful, but also into a possibility to get it even better!
