About

In Metacell: Genesis, The Card Game you take on the role of one of humanity's last defenders, who are training to battle a scientific abomination that was created by our hunger for answers about the nature of reality. Battle your friends and learn the skills you'll need to survive!

Metacell: Genesis, The Card Game is an exciting 2-4* player game that can either be played in minutes, or for hours. Metacell: Genesis requires you to combine thoughtful strategy, luck, and in-your-face gameplay to create a fun, fast, and casual game that can be played anywhere, anytime. The game mechanics are simple, but leave a lot of room for playstyle growth to ensure replay value for a long time to come. Metacell: Genesis, The Card Game makes a great game to play on family game nights, holidays, or even on "poker night". 

*The game has expansions that allow the player total to increase above 4, these are available as stretch goals.

Social Media Stretch Goal: If we reach 500 shares we will do a live Q&A on twitch. Ask us literally anything you'd like...what is Chris' favorite color or if Ian could be any animal what would he be or what does John consider the most difficult question in life?

Game Design and Development:

Metacell: Genesis, The Card Game is designed to be played by your youngest and oldest relatives at the same time. We've incorporated qualities that every age group can enjoy: Quick games, and fast gameplay, mixed with exciting endings, strategy elements, complex team play, score management, and fully developed characters with powerful abilities, provide something for all generations. All this combines to create a game that is incredibly easy to learn but fun for even the experienced gamer.

When we completed the game design, it went through extensive play-testing and prototyping to ensure it is of the highest quality and professionally presented.

Manufacturing:

We have high standards. To make sure we create a game that represents those standards, all manufacturing will be done by Quality Playing Cards, Inc. using their safety certified, 100% clean & green printing facilities. They are very responsive and helpful, and we're very confident we made the right choice in our production team!

In addition to being earth-friendly and safe(we did choose Earth day to launch after all), producing with Quality Playing Cards gives us the ability to print the game on a very high quality card stock, the same stock you'd find on your best set of poker cards. We want to ensure your game will be worth your investment and be enjoyable for years to come.

The PfR team has spent countless hours creating relentlessly to make this game come to life. The world around the game is completely fleshed out, manifesting a thriving history and complex relationships, complete with dynamics between all new races and technologies. While this might seem a little overboard for a simple card game, its what gave birth to the game mechanics in the first place; and it allows us to create a dreamscape and enjoy a multitude of games that all take place at different times within the same world. Enter the Metacell world with us now!

Risks and challenges

We strive to make quality games that are a complete experience. We like to picture our projects as a triangle: three strong sides – the development team, the backers, and the production team – coming together to create a whole that ensures the success of the project. To this end we engage both our manufacturers and backers, keeping them well connected and up to date.

Our manufacturer has shown its belief in this as well, with its timely responses and excellent engagement. We believe this will create a very strong, well-connected community to ensure the satisfaction of our backers.

If unforeseen events do arise, we will take them in stride. Again, our well-formulated "triangle" will be the foundation of our approach. Keeping our community informed of any delays, which we have prepared extensively to avoid, will ensure that every backer is satisfied and knows exactly what to expect from both our company and our game.

We have worked for companies in the past that were only interested in money and what they could get out of an experience. We created Products for Robots in response to this: we want to create games and have them played and enjoyed by as many people as possible. To this end we guarantee that every penny from our campaigns will be spent on creation, production, and fulfillment to put these games in our backers hands as soon as possible.

We will do all fulfillment ourselves through USPS. We have our manufacturer's quotes in hand, and all game artwork is already complete.
