Back in March, I put out a call for playtesters. They answered, and together we took over a game store on Wilshire for one night, working through the new card game we’re developing.
We had temp cards with no artwork — even the title of the game was omitted. Didn’t matter. The players dug it.
“Fun + fast. Catan meets Magic meets Uno.”
“Old-fashioned and modern at the same time.”
“If a mad scientist created a card game, this would be it.”
It’s called One Hit Kill. It’s a game full of ridiculously overpowered weapons, drawn from science fiction, myth and popular culture.
It has Krakens and Portals to Nowhere. There are Time Machines, Elven Bows and Railguns. Even Cthulhu’s Granddad makes an appearance.
You can check out some of the weapons and other cards at our prelaunch website: onehitkillgame.com
Sign in, and you’ll get a special URL to share with friends to unlock additional cards. (Yes, even the prelaunch is sort of a game. We can’t stop ourselves.)
The first person to unlock all the artwork will receive one of the numbered decks from the playtest.1
We anticipate launching One Hit Kill sometime next week. Follow us on our brand-new Twitter account for details: @onehitkillgame
Thanks again to our 30 brave playtesters. Excited to show the rest of the world what you helped shape.
