Great Boy the Game Kickstarter has officially launched!

The Kickstarter project is live!!!

Great Boy the Game is a 1~3 player narrative puzzle that gives the players a chance to work out a mysterious miracle story about Elijah from the bible.  Players will have to

  • Explore locations
  • Find items including clues, spiritual weapons, non-playable characters, tradeable goods, and scriptures key to solving the puzzles
  • maintain their strength and confidence stats
  • make really difficult choices that alter the course of the game
  • fight spiritual battles

The game will be made up of nearly 100 tarot-sized (2.75 x 4.75 inch) cards, each with original art!

The art is nearly complete and I will soon begin game testing the newer version. We had some success game testing the earlier version, but this version is much much better which gives me the confidence to launch the kickstarter campaign.
