Hai there.wall of text incoming
I just wanted to drop by and fish for some feedback on CCG i've been working on for a few weeks on and off.
SKIP THIS UNLESS YOU WANT SOME STORY HOW THIS CAME TO BE
The back story behind all of this would be that I've been working on a Sci-fi game idea for quite a while as well with a player driven economy
(EvE online and Terraria was a big inspiration, think of it as a what Terraria is to Minecraft, and This game would be to EvE Online, funky, fast paced etc).
So one day I decided to play Final Fantasy 7 again, and quickly ran into the card game in there again, and thought it would be neat to have a Card game inside
that sci-fi game I've been working on, which drew inspiration from the player base and what happened in the universe to develop the card game further.
Wont go much more onto details on that game idea, but you get the drift I hope.
START HERE IF YOU SKIPPED
This is my first try on making any type of card game and i'm heavily inspired by M:tG, so have that in mind.
It's another Sci-fi CCG, wooh.
I'll do a short breakdown on how the game would be played, if you want more details, check out the WIP Rule Book.
Goal is to destroy your opponents Space station aka the player. It has 30 hull(life).
Units have three stats, Attack, Shield and Hull.
Shields regenerate at the end of each turn.
The different card types:
Resource Base http://i59.tinypic.com/2d9y6gw.jpg
Resources, where your resource units/buildings go, same for Buildings and the Buildings zone.
The twist if you will with the resource mechanic is that atm there's two types of resources which is Metal and AP. M used to construct your units.
You may sell this metal, by marking your RB(Resource base) at the end of your turn, meaning it grants you AP(it's temporary name for now)
on your next turn instead of M(metal).
AP is mainly used to pay for Character, Instant, Condition and Ability cards with a few exceptions, look at it as money.
We got three different 'Battlefields' where you will face your opponents units in battle.
Construction site, is where your new units will spawn in, or rather, get constructed which takes a turn.
Units in your front field, may attack your opponents front field or Space station.
Ships in your Co-op field may attack buildings and units that are being constructed.
Ships in the Flank field may attack the resource structures and/or the Co-op ships.
^ La rule book.
The reason for more then one battlefield is my RTS gamer background to blame, I want some movement (warp mechanic here) and some means to attack and
defend your resources, which hopefully results in more depths and complexity. We'll see how that pans out.Board
Once you're out on a battlefield, attacking may begin, you may attack units straight on, or try and surpass them
and target what ever is behind them, Space station if you're in the Front battlefield as an example.
Defending attacks may only be done if one of two conditions are met, your unit has Intercept, or your opponent
is attacking your Space station, Resource Base or any Building.
If the latter is met, you may defend your ie space station and battle that unit. If your opponent attacks one of your
units, you may only defend it if another unit has intercept, and take the original targets place instead and battle the opponents unit.
Both units deal damage at the same time.
I think that might be enough as an OP. Questions are happily answered, and i'll show some more cards later on.
Think I've got about 100 different cards atm and it's growing.
I have only done LIMITED testing with 2 decks I've printed out, and that was with only the one 'Front' battlefield, so it's really Alpha
when we tested it, not even the complete deal if you know what I mean.
Also, if someone has the know hows and the free time to maybe get a rough beta working on Lackey, that would be sick. I sadly
don't have the time to learn how to make the module/mod and then do it
Sample of some of the early Ship alpha/beta cards I printed way back. http://i57.tinypic.com/rrkzr8.jpg
Some editing have been done on them since then.
Disclamer, I don't own the ART, it's borrowed until if this project takes of the ground at any point!
Aight, thanks for me!
