What is bite me cutie?
"bite me cutie" is a brand and company which delivers a fun card game containing chibi and kawaii creature-infused food. This game was inspired by my love of animals and food. I created "bite me cutie" as a way to bring awareness to endangered animal species. Each character aka CUTIE has a story that comes from the heart... My heart.
Every game package comes with 3 decks: "CUTIE DECK", "FLAVOR DECK", & "EFFECT DECK". The goal of the game is to collect the most cuties by the end of the game, the player with the highest tallied cutie class points wins!
OFFICIAL HOUSE RULES:
* At the beginning of your turn draw one card out of the FLAVOR DECK & EFFECT DECK.
* When your turn ends say "Done" to let the other players know that your turn is over.
* Players can have a maximum of 10 cards in hand, every card after that must be discarded until you have only 10 cards in hand.
* When it's your turn you can use as many EFFECT CARDS & COLLECT as many cuties as you can afford. STRATEGIZE!
* When you COLLECT a CUTIE it is replaced by another CUTIE CARD from the CUTIE DECK. Rinse & repeat until all CUTIES are COLLECTED.
* When a cutie's bite point is reduced to zero its' class points will not count until healed by a buff card.
* Each deck has a discard pile next to them, once you run out of cards from the respected decks shuffle the discard pile to have a new deck to draw from.
* The player with the highest class points wins! They become titled the "Cutie Chef" for this battle.
* If any players have the same amount of class points the player with the most cuties & and matching flavors win!
* When the last cutie card is collected no more cards can be drawn from the deck and everyone has one last turn to deal out their trap and buff cards to knockout and heal their cuties. Trap cards that bring cuties back to field are negated.
In the not so distant future, a world where many animals have faced extinction, over poaching, and harsh environment, exists "bite me cutie". Cuties are creatures made from the SPIRAL DNA of animals long gone by imprinting the DNA traits of that animal into what ever object the spiral DNA is placed on. The first CUTIE was created when our mascot "CUTIE" aka a slice of cheese pizza was infused with a happy trait. After that humans went over and beyond experimenting with infinite combinations to make all kinds of cuties in order to cope with the loss of real animals in their current age. Though a few animals have survived throughout the ages, things have only gotten harder for these animals fighting near extinction. That's why we have to fight to preserve these animal and cuties to alter history. Learn what you need in order to collect cuties and help them grow and live.
That's right, this game is about animal preservation, BAM! Didn't see that coming.... right?
INTRODUCING "THE CHEFS" YOUTUBE COLLABS YOUTUBERS:
Starting from a sketch pad > to Illustrator > to After Effects > back to Illustrator for the final deck. So many steps, right? Overall each card takes about 10 hours to make individually, from early stage sketches to final story & card design. Now just multiply that by 70+ cards and you have "bite me cutie"! Hours of my life devoted to something that I hope won't disappoint you.
THE ORIGIN STORY.
Hello my name is Thien Vuong and I'm an artist. I've been making online video content on the "RealTDragon" Youtube Channel for the past 6 years, and through this project I wanted to showcase that anything is possible if you can dedicate your heart and mind to it. Designing and creating illustrated characters was never in my skill set but through creating this passion project, "bite me cutie", I was able to build my skills as an artist. Through persistent grit, I made my dream of becoming a well versed graphic artist a tangible goal. Inspired to create cute animal and food designs inspired by the kawaii/chibi art style and culture of Japan! Before this project, roughly starting December 2016, I could barely sketch out my ideas. However, after spending thousands of hours to make "bite me cutie", I can confidently say that I have achieved something I would never have been capable of otherwise. "bite me cutie" is a reminder to myself and to other creators to never limit yourself, don't make imaginary boundaries... Just do what makes you happy. <3
HELP US MAKE THIS A REALITY.
This has been an on-going passion project for me that I feel could really be a great way to spend time with friends, family, and people you've just met. You can play "bite me cutie" anywhere, whether it be at a friend gathering, card game night, Anime & Comic Conventions, or pizza party. I felt that the Kickstarter community and platform would be a great way to gauge interest for "bite me cutie" and allow me to send the package straight to you!
All the cards are custom designed, sized, and each deck will have over 100+ cards. My initial goal for this project is to raise $5,000 in order to fulfill the minimum quantities to start producing the cards at top notch quality. 75% goes to production costs, 15% goes straight back to your rewards, & 10% are to pay the rest of the payments and fees.

The "bite me cutie" campaign will run for 30 days and will end in June. If we meet our goal, the bite me cutie card game (with the original backer rewards) will be put into production immediately! To get to you as soon as possible. The process takes approximately 2-3 months for production to complete and 1-2 months to ship all items to our warehouse. Approximately being able to be in your hands this summer! As soon as the card game and reward items are in hand we will make multiple announcements here and on all social media and shipments will begin. Additional Stretch Goals? Any funds that are over our original goal amount will be used to fund our stretch goals. All funds beyond that will be reinvested into future "bite me cutie" projects.
SHARE THIS PROJECT ON SOCIAL MEDIA! :)
Risks and challenges
Any risk for the campaign is difficult to think of. All the art for the card game has already been completed and now simply waiting to reach the goal. Once successful the cards will be printed and sent out accordingly as well as, shirts, pins, posters, and plushies! That being said, “Murphy's Law” (Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong) could possibly occur. From printing and manufacturing delays, products getting lost in the shipping process, or human error ending in something not being sent.
I will be working hard to cater to our Kickstarter backers. Each person has a file in which we will be keeping tally of what has been sent, what is still pending, and any other problems that may have transpired post-reward-sending.
I'm in it for the long haul and see crowdfunding as an important component in the future. I will personally be overseeing everything to make sure everything and everyone is taken care of properly. Thanks again for supporting! Please let me know if you have any concerns. :)
