Anno Domini: Kickstarter Previews
Am 15. Mai startet der Kickstarter von Anno Domini 1666.
As promised, we have an important announcement to make: our crowdfunding campaign launches on May 15th. Actually, there will be two campaigns: one on Kickstarter, and one on Wspieram.to – the biggest Polish crowdfunding platform. Pledges made on both platforms will be pooled together to unlock Stretch Goals. We will need to do this manually, which means a lot of extra work, but we believe it will be worth it. After all, we’re making a game featuring characters from some of be…st-known Polish novels. We simply owe it to our Polish supporters to provide a ‘local’ way to participate in our campaign.
Please spread the word, and let your friends know about our game. Invite them to like our fanpage and cosider supporting us. There are more than two weeks left before the campaign starts and we have lots of exciting news to share during that time. We promise you will not be bored.

As most of you probably know by now, Anno Domini 1666 uses cards instead of dice. In the demo version these were standard playing cards. They were easily available, so that everyone could try the game at home.
Obviously, the finished game needs something special.
Here you can see some sample cards. They are based on real 17th century cards, but if you look close, you can recognize characters from the game on some of them.
The big change is that we replaced the common French suits (diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades) with custom suits: horseshoes, cups, hearts, and skulls. The purpose, aside from the coolness of the idea, was to make it easier to remember which body part a suit represents. Now it should be quite easy: skull = head, cup = arm, heart = torso, and horseshoe = leg. We hope this change will make your games more streamlined and more intuitive.
Das ist natürlich nur eine schnelle Zusammenstellung. Mehr Bilder und Artikel sind unter dem Quellen-Link zu finden.
