Two news posts in one day?
That’s what happens when two of your favourite app companies come out with news on the same day (yesterday, of course).
This incredible card-driven game designed by Volko Ruhnke has been in Early Access on Steam since the end of March 2020 and it is finally ready to emerge like a beautiful butterfly.
In the game, players are either the US or Jihadist extremists, trying to exert their influence and get various countries on their side (or under Islamic Rule if you are the Jihadists).
It’s a card-driven game similar to Twilight Struggle where you have a hand of cards and can play cards of your own faction for either the event or some other action. If the card is your opponent’s faction, you can only do some other action and the event itself will actually happen, if possible. (Unlike Twilight Struggle, it is very possible you will have an opponent’s event card that can’t happen so you’re safe to play it).
I’ve been really enjoying this since it came out and I can’t wait to play it on mobile. I linked above to my Early Access look at the game from back in April and the game has only gotten better.
Playdek has once again hit it out of the park with this one.
You can still get it on Steam at the Early Access price, and it’s even on sale during Steam’s Digital Tabletop Fest! It’s 25% off until October 26, so get on it quick.
