We should finish up Art Production on the game based on the Few and Cursed comics (the 5th comic is on Kickstarter now) by the end of the year. I’m headed to Metatopia this weekend to give it some more testing but had a great playtest last week at our Philly’s Game Maker’s Guild. I’m so thankful that the comic book creator is handling the art production and using artists from the comic to give it such an amazing look.
After we have approved the sketch and the final ink, the piece is colored (sometimes by a different artist who specializes in coloring):
The Few and Cursed is a deckbuilding adventure game that takes place in a post-apocalyptic earth where most of the water on the planet has been gone for seventy years. Without water, civilization just halted any progress and stayed pretty much the same…with the exception of the monsters, magic and curses that showed up (check out the comic books on Kickstarter for more info on the world).
In the game, players take on the role of a curse-chasing bounty hunter looking to make a name for themselves. Players traverse the desert of the Pacific Ocean as they improvise to acquire new cards for their deck. On your quest, you will hunt down bounties, complete odd jobs and encounters, and search for supernatural artifacts.
Each character in the game has their own unique starting stats, abilities and starting deck! That’s right we’re balancing asymmetrical starting decks for this game. As you can see from the board above, you have a left/right hand slot and 2 accessory (backpack) spots for items. It’s definitely going to be our biggest and most ambitious title to date. Anyways, hopefully these images and concepts start getting you excited for the game in 2019!
