What's new with Card Hunter? Why, the upcoming Attack of the Artifacts expansion, of course. Check out this video to get a sense of what'll be added to the excellent tactics/deck-building RPG.
Nice, Card Hunter is getting a tablet version. Blue Manchu's terrific tactics RPG/deck-building game Card Hunter always seemed suited to tablet devices, and now, it's finally happening. The tablet version will be a free-to-play app, similar to the browser-based original. The release date is still TBD.
I've been looking forward to playing a finished version of the tabletop/deck-building tactical RPG Card Hunter since I first played it at PAX last year. If you'd like a new in-depth look, check out this video, in which one of the game's developers takes on Alec Meer of Rock, Paper Shotgun.
I've become enamored of Card Hunter, which brilliantly combines a strategy tabletop RPG with a deck-building card game and comes up with something that feels both new and familiar.
Plenty of great games combine multiple game ideas into a single cohesive package. Persona mixed a dating sim and a party-based JRPG. Deus Ex combined sneaking, shooting and role-playing stats so successfully that it's still mimicked to this day.
There's no shortage of video games that are essentially card games running on a computer, but few have the pedigree of upcoming browser title Card Hunter.
