About

ABXY a speedy, 2-player, simultaneous action selection game inspired by the legendary battles from our favorite monster training RPGs. With just 4 button cards and 5 creature cards each, you'll need wit, insight, and strategy to defeat your opponent.  

The cornerstones of ABXY are:

  • Simultaneous Play: ABXY’s action-packed battles require on-the-fly decision making. Players act simultaneously, so there is no first- or second-player advantage.
  • Public Information: There are no secret "gotcha!" cards, no hidden powers, and no surprise effects. All special abilities, combatants, and options are visible to both players.
  • Simple Mechanics: ABXY can be taught in less than 5 minutes.  Your first match can be over in less than 15.

Promos are not designed to be competitive, just fun. You can even use them as a handicap in matches to even out unbalanced competition.    

The first promo we're sharing is Ymir, the mythological giant currently found slaying vikings in Rampaging Jotunn. Check out the Kickstarter Campaign right here!

  

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is our first go at Kickstarter and crowdfunding in general. One of the reasons we chose to launch ABXY ahead of other games we've already developed is because the per-unit cost in time, materials, and resources is very low. This dramatically reduces the likelihood of component-related snags and shipping disasters.

Finalizing the game will involve creation of a few original artworks (most of the art in the game is nearly final) and some layout and design work. We do not anticipate this taking a long time (and have given ourselves extra time to work with).
