Really cool game! I've always wanted to make a card game and this one was super fun. The different characters and cards made the gameplay really different each time, but I unfortunately had a bug where I couldn't roll or draw cards and so I couldn't finish any of my runs. Good job!

Dammit, I thought I managed to fix that pesky bug :( I'm glad you enjoyed the game though!

Well done!  I can't imagine how to make this yet lol. I'm not good at card games, but was still interesting~

Developer

thank you! It is a little different to create, but I'm sure you can do it as well!

Fun card game, but by the end of the run, the only new cards that were added were the rain and heatwave cards. At one point I drew six rains in a row... I managed to score 50 on my first run.

Developer

yea, unfortunately die roll games are influenced pretty heavily by rng :( I'll have to think of a way to downplay that in the future!

It was less bad rng, and simply the fact that all of the other cards in the deck had been used. The only thing that keeps the deck restocked is the rain and heatwave cards, so by the end of the run, these were the ONLY cards left in the deck. There needed to be more cards that were re-added because the variation in the cards decreased over time, until there were no special cards.

Developer

ohhh okay  I see :) ill increase the deck size with special cards
