CARD GAME UPDATE
THE RESULTS ARE IN
The proofs are in. The print quality is gorgeous. Everything I wanted to achieve artistically and mechanically is there. The Forum Users - the point of the entire game - all look really good.
Ah, but there’s a goof: in the center right of the cards is a small sign labeled with a 1.1 or a 1.2. The first number refers to the core game, the second number its iteration. I designed it both as a quick way to tell decks apart if someone didn't know the architecture, or in my case forgot it, and as a placeholder in case later I design an expansion that is meant to integrate with a core deck. Three Kickers have a mislabeled iteration. On Deck 2, it’s Oh Snap; on Deck 1 it’s Spam Bot and - appropriately - Your Shipment of Fail Has arrived.
After a lot of careful consideration, I came to a conclusion:
Fuck it -- we’ll do it LIVE!
Even as the small hex glares hot, piercing judgment at me from the card face, I also know that changing the file would trigger the demand for a new proof and would result in a further pushing back of a product that is already way past due. The Mona Lisa has an inconsistent background. Toy Story has a foundational plot error. While not operating on that level, I think it’s fair as a precedent to say “close enough”.
I think I can and should patch that out, but I’m going to wait until after the holidays when doing so will minimize the chance of the fix result in me making further mistakes.
In the meantime, a victory lap on a flat tire is still winning.
SO WITH ALL THAT SAID…IT’S HERE! IT’S REAL! IT’S LIVE -- COME AND GET IT!
Work will continue on the Host Cards and future updates will focus on them. .
Thank you all so much! I love you and am grateful for this community and to have you in my life.
