Chainsaw Warrior Design Contest Announced

Chainsaw Warrior is a campy card game from the 90s that has been revived in excellent form for digital platforms. We recently got the release of the expanded game, Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night.

Now Auroch Digital is holding a special design competition. I'll let them give you the details:


They are looking for your best idea for a weapon, item of equipment, zombie, monster or trap. The best idea chosen from the entries will actually get added to the game and the creator be given a special design credit on the game!

If there was one weapon or item you could equip him with to aid him in his mission, or a trap or monster to slow him down, what would it be? Chainsaw Warrior relies heavily on his kit when he's off saving the world. From his trusty 'saw, devices like the Heat Detector warning him of approaching threats, all the way to the bullet-spewing chaos of the Reaper, his loadout has saved what skin he has left more than once. Perhaps you want to make this tough game even tougher? Can you design a new opponent or trap to mash, stab or eviscerate Chainsaw Warrior?

Whether you choose to design an aid or an obstacle, it has to be fair so that the challenging and entertaining balance of Chainsaw Warrior is not disturbed. In the same way that the powerful Laser Lance only has limited ammo, we want your entries to enhance the gameplay in a plausible and unbiased manner (so no Laser-Reapers!)

Get creative, send us some sketches if you have an idea of how you would like it to appear, and we will design and implement the card into the game! It can be a hand-to-hand, light or heavy weapon, an item such as a piece of technology or transport, an item of clothing or armour, a trap card, or a new enemy for Chainsaw Warrior to overcome.

To apply simply submit your design work to before the 31st August. This competition applies to 'Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night' only.

So there you go, looks like quite the task, so get those creative juices flowing and see what you can come up with.

Earthcore Comes to Android

Earthcore, the collectible card game co-designed by Michał Oracz has now been released for Android. Along with this update comes many improvements to both versions of the game. If you missed this one when it was iOS only, be sure to check out on Android. At launch we praised the game for its unique take on lane-based card play.

Check out the trailer:

Loot and Legends Submitted to Apple

We first heard about Card Hunter at PAX Prime 2012. How young I was back then and free of care. The game has been available on PC for a while now and is amazing fun if you have not tried it.

The mobile version has been mentioned several times over the past year and has finally been submitted to Apple! We have not word yet on a release date, but usually submission marks just a short wait before the game is available. We will be sure to let you know as soon as the release date arrives!
