Digital Version of '90s CCG Doomtrooper Hits Its Kickstarter Funding Goal
Who needs brand-new digital CCGs when there are so many from the '90s to revive?
Over 40 different collectible card games launched in 1995 alone. One of them was Doomtrooper, designed by Swedish company Target Games, and it's set to make its return 22 years later in electronic form.
Based on the Mutant Chronicles RPG, which is set in a far future, post-apocalyptic world -- think of a cross between Warhammer 40,000 and Mad Max -- Doomtrooper's Kickstarter funded in less than 36 hours, giving plenty of time for stretch goals such as crafting, quests, and Linux support. Granted, the Kickstarter set a modest goal of only $15,000, and it will clearly take more than that to deliver a full-fledged game, but it's a start.
The Doomtrooper Digital CCG is being created by Secret Cow Level and Cabinet Entertainment, with contributions from the game's original designer, Bryan Winter (no relation, I swear!). We've confirmed that it will be free-to-play at launch, and as you can see from the Kickstarter, the quest system will make it easy for players to earn other cards for free.
I played a game or two of Doomtrooper way back in the day and remember having a positive impression of it -- which was something, considering the aforementioned glut of CCGs from that time period, many of which were very, very bad. So if the people involved can do a good enough job of adapting it to digital, I'll be sure to check it out. How about you?
