Any of those games would be real great to see adapted, so whichever really speaks to you, esp cause I'm excited to see how someone would adapt them outside of how I visualize it lol
Also if you want Space Goblins, it was in the itch racial injustice bundle if you picked that up!
Hey hey! Tabletop designer here who'd be thrilled if someone wanted to adapt any of my games!
A lot of my games are worldbuilding focused, so I'd even challenge someone to play them (like A Land Once Magic) and then make a game based on the world you made! Spellchitects is a collaborative drawing game thats all about spell creation, I can totally see some video games utilizing it in some form!
I think my easiest translatable game would be Space Goblins! It's already designed with a very roguelike loop and fun and easy randomization and chaos for a variety of digital game genres!
I'm also hoping to make something based on a video game, so here's to a fun jam of us itch creators finding each other's work!!
I love this!!! I was waiting for someone to make something related to the titular central star and I love the flavor around this!
A game mode where you gotta balance manipulating the star and hindering your opponent is real cool! Also the relationship you've created with the effects is very very fun lol I'd wanna play this FOR SURE
I've seen some cards in the catalog that are Ingredients, so this is a great evolution and expansion!
The Flavormancer is rad, I'm excited to see where this goes and maybe contribute some stuff myself!!
Hey yall, I made this card here and am in love with the theme and pun and name and look and think it'd make a real fun archetype! You know, Saurceroar - Sorcerer + Saurus + Roar. I think it's great
BUT I NEED HELP
I don't really have a concrete image of what this deck would look like, mostly in the form of MAGIC-BASED DINOSAUR PUNS! So any help there would be real swell!!
Also I thought it'd be fun to try out a topic of like collaboratively brainstorming a theme!
My current ideas are:
- Big creatures with Big Numbers and Small creatures that Swarm Up (you know cause dinos are Big but also they can be Small)
- Magic as protection or enhancements, I mean the dinos are wizards but how does that magic manifest?
- Support cards that are about growing in levels and maybe eating each other, like a food chain type thing
If you got any good name puns or some cool card ideas drop them here!
For sure! And if you wanna cut it for quick play you could always make it an optional rule/Scenario card where people can choose to bring in a slightly more robust combat back-and-forth
Also, I did really appreciate leaning into the "fill in the blanks" rulings of the basic rules, I love seeing that mentality permeate throughout even deeper explorations of the game's rules/conversions :)
wow!!! yeah this all really rules, and I ABSOLUTELY love the spirit of it! I know I have a lot of MTG cards I collected solely cause I like the art or the general theme of the set that I'll never play irl lol
Most everything you got I really vibe with, and I think slots in real easily! I think the power/stamina is a little confusing, or at least a little chunky at first glance, but I get that they're an important part of MTG cards so some conversion for them would be necessary! I don't have any suggestions atm but I'm excited to see where you'd go trimming it or expanding it!
hm yeah I might mess around and make some basic utility cards!
I saw on twitter someone was making cards that mess with the Materials mechanic (where you can play a card facedown and turn it into a blank, can't have actions, level 1 sacrifice token) and I think that's a good direction! I know I built this game with more Yu-Gi-Oh in mind than, say, MTG lol
oh yeah these are also good ideas! The Card Catalog is technically the place to post your cards so they're easily collectable, but having a Drive or a Sheet to easily grab pngs or export as a .csv could also be helpful!
I can try and set that up or see if other people would find that useful!
For people looking to start making cards, here's a collection of card creation stuff that's been made by me and other people in the community!
Card Creation Resources
A FREE way to easily make cards on desktop and mobile and export them as zips of pngs or a pdf is through this Canva Template I made! All you need is to sign into Canva, which can be done for free or using a Google account, etc!
Other templates created are:
Oh I love this! Really interesting actions here :0
Also yeah I don't even know what the balance is lol the best I can say is level 0s can be played no cost and you get 1 free Level 1 so the higher the level the harder it'll be to get on the board but also the better it can afford to be? So we'll see lol
This sounds real fun! I think it's perfectly fine in the spirit of the jam, being able to convert or easily adapt misc cards can get people playing basic tcg faster so it fits!
I was also thinking of just looking through some old cards and grabbing fun stuff as inspiration from them with my own ideas and flare!
Maybe it's a Scenario, and you can bring other cards into the game and just play them alongside others?
