Winner of Wright State University's 2016 student business competition, Galatune is an action-packed battle tabletop card game and comic book series inspired by anime and science fiction, illustrated by talented indie artist Yamerpro.
About the Card Game
View Game Manual
A rare game with simple enough gameplay for casual players and families new to tabletop, and yet rich enough strategy to challenge serious gamers. 2-5 players each lead a Champion warrior into battle and earn a Victory Point each time an opponent is defeated. You win the game by being the first to earn 3 Victory Points by defeating 3 opponents. BUT there's a twist! The game doesn't end for you when your Champion falls in battle. Instead, you just get back up on your feet, respawn your Champion, and continue fighting! Think of it as a sort of card-based battle-royal, like a Battle Arena game, where you play for KOs.
Unlike most other battle card games where players take their turns one-at-a-time, in Galatune everyone attacks simultaneously! It's an exciting formula that keeps the game moving and encourages players to predict and react to each other in real time.
The game includes everything you need for up to 5 players to learn and play together, with 12 unique Champion characters plus a big deck of spells, swords, laser guns, robot butlers, demons, and more -all lovingly illustrated in a stunning anime style!
Every single card in the game is rooted in a rich science fiction fantasy world that ties into the story of the upcoming Galatune comic book series. In fact, if we reach our stretch goals, we hope to include the first issue of the comic book with every box of the game! AND BIG NEWS: we have Mike DeCarlo on board illustrating the comic series! Mike DeCarlo has been creating iconic animation and cartoon art since 1980, including work for THE SIMPSONS, ARCHIE, LOONEY TUNES, BATMAN, SUPERMAN, MARVEL, DC, BOOM STUDIOS, DISNEY, WARNER BROTHERS, and more!
Dive into an immersive anime science-fiction adventure with the whimsical charm of a cosmic fairy tale. What begins as a classic tale about a young boy on a journey to rescue the princess soon becomes an emotional story exploring the cost of freedom and the paradox of peace.
Set against the backdrop of Planet Lyra, the ruling class of Lyrics (think of them as space elves) maintain a United World Government through the monopoly of highly-advanced ancient technologies. Its a fun mashup of fantasy themes in a world where swords and magic clash with ancient robots and ray guns. Although the United World Government ensures peace and prosperity for its citizens, it's a gilded utopia wrought with social inequality and prejudice.

The Fan Expansion Pack DOUBLES the number of characters in your deck by adding 12 Fan Inspired Kickstarter characters. Each fan character is competitively balanced and ready to integrate into your Galatune Starter Deck, putting new gameplay options and battle strategies at your finger tips.
Risks and challenges
All of our backer rewards are designed, proofed, and ready to go as soon as we can pay to have them produced. That puts us well on target to release the game this holiday season or soon after.
We just have two challenges left:
1: financing the cost of manufacturing
2: spreading the word and building a supportive fan base
We've done everything we can at this point: so much sweat, tears, money, love, and sleepless nights have gone into getting the project this far. Now, it's all up to you, we place our future in your hands! Become part of this incredible journey, back us up and help spread the word.
