Get Exclusive Card When You Back Spellslingers

As many of you know there is a KickStarter campaign currently running that if funded will give people the chance to play Vincent Baker's fast-paced card game call Spellslingers. As of right now there is still time to jump in on backing this project. You have until April 7th. 

Now I'm sure some of you might be wondering what exactly is in the Spellslingers deck besides the four different spell types each containing 20 themed cards. Well, after some discussing I found that the deck will contain 100 cards, plus a KickStarter exclusive card. So if you back it before the end you're going to get a special card you can't get anywhere else. 

So what is in the other 20 (or 21) cards? These cards are character cards, these allow for further customization of the game. Each character gives special bonuses towards a specific spell type, and that can be enough to turn the tide of battle in your favor.

Speaking of the tide of battle, check out this instructional video to give you an idea of how the battling actually goes down.

Alright, enough stalling, what is this exclusive card, you've got to be asking, without further delay, let me introduce you to the Penguin Bear caster.

Adam Wolfe Season 1 Review

Delve into the underbelly of San Francisco, where what you thought you knew might not really be all that the world has or is hiding. In Adam Wolfe you will be put into the shoes of Adam Wolfe, a private investigator of the paranormal variety. It is through this first season, or four chapters of the game, that you'll take on cases, all of which will get you one step closer to finding your sister that mysteriously vanished. The thing is that the path is fraught with danger, and one wrong step, or one moment of letting your guard down could mean the end of you, and perhaps many others.

This is an interesting game that mixes the point click adventure genre with puzzles, hidden objects, and replaying crime scenes through the manipulation of time. You will of course be taking on different pieces of an over-arching quest to find your sister, but in each chapter there is a new aspect, a new roadblock that will be put in front of you. The interesting thing, is that yes, it is frustrating to see these obstacles, but they feel natural in the flow of the game. Too many games put the obstacles to try to make the player spend more time in the game, but this game the obstacles seem logical, they seem to fit right into the story and allow the player to stay immersed in the game.

There are a couple of things about this game that really work for me. The first, of course, is the voice acting, there's nothing quite like actually getting to hear the voices and being pulled further into the game because of it. There is a lot of dialogue and text going on, and it is refreshing to actually have the characters speak so as to allow for the player to not have to read, and possibly re-read for context. The other AMAZING thing is that you can pick up items when you are in an area, EVEN if you don't need them at the current place and time. Sure, there might be items added to a location later in a chapter or the game, but for the most part you might have something that has no significance, but later on you don't have ton continuously backtrack to find what you need. This once again enhances the player's ability to continue to be immersed and get lost in the flow of the game.

As stated previously there are 4 chapters, and at the end there HAS to be more to come. At the end of each of these chapters you are left with a cliffhanger which make you want to just dive right into the next game. This is a well crafted game/series. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in puzzles, mystery, and adventure. This game gets an 9.0 out of 10.
