We launched our Machine of Death card game Kickstarter a little while ago, and it’s been nuts! The above is a real tweet from the official Cards Against Humanity account, linking to our our pitch video (which I think came out really great!).
We’re raised over $150K so far, and have unlocked a ton of stretch goals, including free bonus cards by a variety of Webcomics Pals, as well as four — yes, four — free preview stories from THIS IS HOW YOU DIE. You can read them all right now via our Kickstarter updates:
Preview story #1 — “OLD AGE, SURROUNDED BY LOVED ONES”, by ’Nathan Burgoine
Preview story #2 — “ROCK AND ROLL”, by Toby W. Rush
Preview story #3 — “DROWNING BURNING FALLING FLYING”, by Grace Seybold
Preview story #4 — “CONFLAGRATION”, by Ian Stoner, writing as D.L.E. Roger
And there will hopefully be more to come, thanks to the kind backers who’re supporting this game! It’s a super fun (if somewhat morbid) party game that I’ve had a lot of fun developing with Kris and others. To give you a better sense of some of the mechanics of the game, here’s a video from one of our playtest sessions.
Hope you like it! I’ve been posting all the Kickstarter updates (of which there are now ten separate posts) to the Machine of Death Facebook page, as well as announcing them on Twitter, so there are ways to get INSTANT NOTIFICATION OF ALL NEWS if you so desire!
