Has anyone checked out the new deck building, video-game themed card game Pixel Lincoln that was recently funded on Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/pixel-lincol...)?

It looks like they shoved everything I love - Retro Video Games, Parody, Unique Gameplay, Character Customisation - all into one pot and stewed it up to create Pixel Lincoln.

The artwork is spot on for the theme, the gameplay has put a unique spin on the deck building format, and the feel of playing is as dead on to a side-action scroller you could get.

I haven't pre-ordered a copy yet but it's definitely on my list. Has anyone had a chance to get a sneak peak at this game yet?

I haven't, but there appear to be two independent videos and a review so far on the game's page, so it has seen some limited play.

Geez, just buy an ad already.


Sorry to disappoint your dubious outlook but no, this isn't my game. I just really like the idea.

This game has been on my radar ever since I saw it on Kickstarter. I'm going to wait for release and some user reviews before getting it though.

All the reviews I've seen so far have been extremely biased and vague so it's been hard for me to gather an exact sense of what the game is about. But from what I've seen it looks very appealing to me.

If I pick up a copy you can rest assured I'll be posting a review .

Jason Tagmire, the designer will have the game at GenCon next week. I had a chance to play it and liked it. I want to play it some more before I do a real review on my website cartrunk.net

We did do a live play of the game (played it live and streamed it,) with the designer and that is still available for viewing, takes less than hour...but there were some technical difficulties since we were using new equipment.

Anyway, I've enjoyed the game and I think many players will really enjoy it. It's fun and creative.

One of my friends backed it, so I'll give it a play or three when it comes out. If it holds up to multiple plays I'll buy a copy.

Because I do a crappy job updating my site, it seems... the video is still available at

http://cartrunk.net/special-live-event/

It's on my youtube channel (tried to link the video straight here but that was a fail.)
