Don’t you just hate it when you’re playing a game with friends and, suddenly, you’re out first and then you’ve got to just sit there and wait while everyone else finishes playing? It can be a real downer. Well, that’s not a worry with Galatune, a new card game and comic that’s up on Kickstarter now. If your character gets knocked out, you grab some smelling salts, dust yourself off, and head back into the fracas.
In the game, players take on the role of intergalactic champions in a Battle Royale setting. The goal is to gain a total of 3 Victory Points, acquired by knocking out enemy heroes. First one there is the winner. And like I mentioned above, if you’re knocked out, just respawn and head back into the fight.
Another aspect of Galatune that sets it apart from many other card games is that attacks are done simultaneously. As such, you’re never waiting for someone else to finish their turn before you can hit them back. Along with the respawning of your hero, it means you’re a part of the game right up until the very end.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s about 1/3 of the way to its goal with still 56 days (yup, it’s a long campaign) to get in on it.
