As promised we will be unlocking a new piece of content every day until our campaign ends and tonight is my favorite piece of art in the game, Bromar! If your a fan of gritty urban television dramas, it won't be hard to figure where our inspiration for this Homie came from.
He isn't just an amazing piece of art though. He has one of the most interesting mechanics in the game. When you place Bromar into the Streets you take the rewards of another Boss' Turf and flip that card over, exhausting it for the turn. By itself this is already pretty powerful, Turfs are the best cards in the game and being able to steal their rewards from another player is a double rainbow.
Thematically, Bromar is performing a street crime called a Rip and Run; looting another criminal's stash house and getting the hell out. We liked it so much we plan to add Rip and Run Crime cards into the final edition of the game that mimics this ability. This is the same Crime that our Homie's inspiration performed in the urban crime drama we mentioned earlier.
This blend of theme, art and mechanics is what Thug Life has always been about. For those that knew about our game before this current campaign, you probably also know that this has been a long and storied journey but we are just getting started! We are definitely going HAM all week and it's all of you who keep us going!
We'll have more fun stuff to talk about tomorrow and some more progress to show on our sculpted Big Boss token as well!
