Adapt - Survival Card Game
Adapt puts you, the players, through a survival scenario directly after your cruise ship wrecks on a deserted island.
Hello backers, I am sad to announce that I feel the aggressive goal of $4,500 will not be met in time, rendering you all to not have a chance to receive your game by Christmas time, which was the ultimate goal. We are re-launching the project with a much more sized-down goal that will make it more reasonable for everyone to get a shot at playing Adapt in time for the holidays! As the title states, we must ADAPT to the situation and be humble about our failures.
We wanted to go for $4,500 to help expand our product right away, but we decided we would like to get the game to those who really want to support our development. Our artists might be upset, but all will be okay! If you are no longer interested in backing the project due to our sudden change, we get it, and we thank you for helping us reach 10% initially! However, why not help us reach 50% of the goal from the gates?
Adapt is a highly strategic survival card game where you take on not only the environment, but your closest friends. Players take turns facing challenges on the island, exploring, hunting, and deciding when to betray the other players all while they are hunting down the precious relics to win the game. You can avoid dangerous misadventures by collecting and holding onto the right supplies, like the fanny pack!
As the game progresses, you will start to notice others hiding their cards, taking less risks, and trying to steal from other players. Those are the people holding relics.
The Origin Story
Adapt started out as a school project back when we were budding game designers (Alex and I). It was much more complicated, too many rules, and not as fun as it could be, we thought. Back then, the game was printed on (and that copy still exists) index cards. I keep that copy around because it’s fun to play the original sometimes. The game had many grimy hands and Cheetos crumbs all over them with the amount of games we pumped out with them. It was one night I was live streaming the game with my mother playing against me that everyone thought we should take the game to the next level. With a month of solid development and polish, we received the first copy of the publisher’s copy…and said, “The world has to see this.”
HELP US BUILD THIS GAME!
We wanted this project on Kickstarter because it’s the fastest way for us to get the game into your hands and make improvements and expansions as a community. We think this game is great, but we need your help making it even better! So, if you are a hardcore survivalist and would like to take a break from the real world to survive on the card island, please back this project and help us build this game!

Risks and challenges
Production of this game is simple: it’s just a card game, so other than getting the game printed, we just need to worry about shipping and getting product moving. The biggest issue would be if this game blew up and became huge, which is why our goal is so low. It’s enough to get some more artists and start building the next expansions. If you back this project, we want to be sure you can start surviving with your friends as soon as possible! This is why we are not offering t-shirts or other complicated tier rewards. Merchandise is awesome, however, it would make the distribution process much longer, and you don’t want that! We are keeping it as simple as possible: support our project and in return we will send you the playable game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
