About

Legend of the Cipher (TM) - the best game in hip hop history.

Get your bars up.

Sit down and play this ill-ass campaign card game, be who you wanna be, do how you wanna do.  Defend your rep, increase your wealth to release yourself, conquer time with immortal rhymes, and battle in a race to become a Legend of the Cipher as you make Moves, buy Shine, manage Industry, employ Crew and collaborate with Allies.  


One vs One
Multiplayer
Crew vs Crew

Intricate, high-content card play gives rise to multiple lyrical Battles and Ciphers in a revolutionary game that concisely emulates the reality of hip hop today... ALL of hip hop.

This Kickstarter is to finalize production of LOC Beta, which is populated by the characters of the LOC companion cartoon, LOC: Enter the Cipher. Rapid fire succession of Kickstarters will follow a successful launch, as we produce the master release, the graphic novels, the evolution of the online LOC Mothership, the LOC Mothership Tournament circuit, and a proposed mmo.

Our master release (for which the gameplay files are already finished!) will cover every Emcee, DJ, Hypeman, Diva, B Boy, Graffiti Writer, Mogul or Vixen with an audience, along with all the actual behind-the-scenes employees like lawyers, managers, publicists, agents, security, web developers, etc. that keep things moving.  Get to know every nuance, every venue, every brand, every venture strategy (yeah, that's right, we said 'venture strategy'), and absorb the full spectrum of hip hop's history and culture, it's people.  Welcome... to the Real.  

Real fun!

This is hands down the best TCG yet!  The lunchbox has landed, people.

Designed to be played for life, but readily accessible for newcomers to either hip hop or gaming, LOC is poised to organically amalgamate masses of Heads, Geeks and Heroes.  Seriously, what could be better?  Get ON this!

HOT News! - Based on the merit of our game we've been invited to kick it backstage at Rock the Bells, New York.  We've also been given a booth with The Lair at Comic Con, New York, on Oct 13h-16th, so look for us there for sure!  We are bringing HEAT!
