very cool game! the art is very cute and the dnd references are nice! cool that you have actual art for the game and it's cool that you have loot tables etc. I see we had a couple similar ideas for our game :)

This is seriously wicked cool! You obviously get brownie points for cute animals & alliteration in the title, but other than that - the whole game is fantastic! Unironcially bringing this out at my next game night & having us all play a few games :^)

Excellent job, you really nailed it!

Man, here I thought you couldn't fit an RPG in this form factor and you just proved me wrong! I love the fact that everything you need fits on just the cards.

Developer

I drew a lot of inspiration from D&D - trying to distill the "fun" was key. Adding in a bit of drawing and creating a D4 out of a card was just the cream on the cake, so to speak.

Thanks for the kind words!

Very cute, if sad, chinchilla. I also really love the spinning top idea and how you balanced the amount of failures allowed.

Developer

I actually wrote a dumb simulator in Lua to determine the balance of everything - required a lot of fiddling. Here if you're interested: https://github.com/josefnpat/cnc/tree/master/Test

I LOVE the inclusion of a top! What a great way to build the randomizer into the card.

Plus, games with cute animals are always great.

Echoing the above, the use of card as randomizer is genius!

Thanks - I did a bunch of research on dice and stuff, and came up with this  concept. Thank you for the kind words!
