It's no secret that things have been a little quiet in the past few months but that's only because we have been working on some big ideas that we just know you all will enjoy. Which is why I'm very pleased to announce one of those upcoming projects. A card game. Private Dragon's first card game. While mobile and video games take years to develop, card games have a much smaller cycle from concept to finished product. This card game will be a fun and casual style game that people of almost any age can play. It's called "Gardens of Glory."
Gardens of Glory is still in the early stages of its development. As of right now, the first batch of cards are still being designed but the framework is all there and it's a project that we are very excited about. Our art design team is on the job, and although I can't give you a firm release date right now, I can safely say that it won't be too long before I will have all the details about the game's release.
Fear not, because I do have a few things that I can share today. The game itself is all about having the best garden. Exciting right? Ha-ha, well, what if I told you you got the best garden by battling it out with your opponent and their garden? There are two types of cards, a garden card, and a fertilizer card. You fight with garden cards, you modify with your fertilizer cards.
Garden cards are plants and creatures in your garden that will fight for you against your opponent's garden. "Monty, the Mighty Mongoose" and "Cabby, the Scrappy Cabbage" are some of my favorite examples of garden cards. Each of these cards has an attack power and fighting type. There are 3 fighting types: melee, ranged, and cavalry. They work in the same way that "Rock, paper, scissors" works, each type defeats and is defeated by one of the other types. When both opponents choose a garden card with the same fighting type, the fertilizer cards come into play to increase the attack power of your garden or decrease your opponent's attack power. "Reinforced Carrot Arrows" is an example of a fertilizer card for a ranged garden card. Hopefully, it provides you the boost that you need to defeat whatever garden card that they have attacked you and your garden with. If so, you win the round!
Seeing the picture now?
More information about this game will come soon. We'll be releasing new card designs and details as we go along and get closer to release. Be sure to tell us in the comments what you think about "Gardens of Glory" and if you have suggestions for some cards, tell us about those too!
