The Story

I'm Jason K Rivera, creator of Food Chained! Lands Around the World.

Food Chained! started with my love of nature as I grew up, and sparked when my oldest child wanted to learn about nature, too. I designed this game to capture the world through the eyes of a child. Each creature has its own abilities that are reflected in Food Chained! Lands Around the World. It's an exciting, interactive game that's educational to boot!

You're backing a fully-finished, highly polished game that's been more than 3 years in the making. No more prototypes, no more test runs. We're totally ready to produce and ship through The Game Crafter!

I look forward to creating future sets of Food Chained! These will be revealed as Stretch Goals are reached. Join our growing community! https://www.facebook.com/foodchained/ 

How to Play

Game-play for Food Chained! is simple enough that new players catch on quickly, but the cards are intricate enough that each game is different. There are many tactics to discover! How many will you find while playing? 

Here is a quick overview of the game-play:

Each player picks a Decomposer as their starting creature.

Feed your creature to accrue energy.

Upgrade your creature to beef it up.

Advance up the food chain in this order: 

  • Decomposer -> Herbivore -> Carnivore -> Omnivore

Herbivores and higher can play an Action Card. 

Carnivores and higher can Hunt other players' creatures.

Omnivores can win the game!

The following rewards are found in these pledges:

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarted project, so I'm learning as I go! But I'm fully committed to delivering since I believe we've completely accounted for all normal time and financial costs.
