It’s a new year already! Time to celebrate with resolve to be the best gamer you can be!
Cheetos and mountain dew all around! If I drink mountain dew I get crazy dreams so I’ll stick with the orange soda.
A new year means new things for Binary Cocoa! Well, a lot of old things in a way, but hopefully soon they will be new to everyone else! Wet Blanket is quite new, so there’s that. It should be available on Amazon this week and we’re supremely stoked to see that happen! Get all your introvert friends together and show them how much you dislike social gatherings by having a social gathering and play this wonderful card game.
There have been a couple questions about the game that have come up recently and I think I’ll try address some of them here. If you have any questions left unanswered just let us know! We like things like that.
If I start out the game with 4 veto cards what should I do? A – the risk of this happening is quite low, but if it does happen it would be extremely hilarious and resolved by your turn when you can discard one of them and draw another card from the draw deck.
What do I do with people cards in my hand? A – play them into the main party! If you draw a person card you hold it in your hand until your turn and play it into the main party so as to thwart other players from draining the main party too soon. After the 8 people in the main party have been laid out to start the game the rest of them get shuffled back into the draw pile.
Can I veto a super veto? A – probably not, but I’ll leave this one up to the preference of the people playing.
Can I take people cards directly from other players? A – no, unless the card specifically says so. There are cards in the Soggy Biscuit expansion deck that do this. People cards go back to the main party when a card says that people must return. Then they are free to be taken by cards that make people leave to your own party.
I’m sure there are many more questions, and I’ll see that I get to them in the next blog post! Other projects are coming along swimmingly. Braxton worked on Collider on Saturday and a new game mode might drop soon! Keep checking in for the big news!
It’s Christmas time again! It’s getting pretty festive around these parts at Binary Cocoa. We celebrated by drawing a Christmas tree on our office white board:
We might also have a surprise soon for the Christmas season! We only have five days left to make so we’ll see if it actually happens. We hope it does for sure! It has something to do with the header of this article. And Street Fighter.
Wet Blanket decks have been ordered and they are currently in transit to everyone! They are also coming to the Binary Cocoa residence and we are anxiously awaiting their arrival. Thanks to everyone that ordered a deck and it’s expansion set! We hope that it touches your inner nerd spirit. It certainly does for us.
So much news! Wet Blanket decks should be ordered this week and sent out to backers! The shirts are also completed and are being ordered this week as well! It’s a Christmas miracle! Let’s all celebrate by watching that one Arnold Schwarzenegger movie where he beats up a bunch of people so he can get a toy doll for his son.
I’m keeping a note of that for the christmas Wet Blanket expansion if we ever make one.
Serpentine is also being worked on! Bots actually die properly now! We’re hoping to release that within a week or two on Steam. Yay!
Joseph and Stephen are exploring Godot to see if it’s unique engine will help us make games more swiftly. It has neat lighting engines that will hopefully bring much moodiness to Egypt. We’ll see what happens! That is all for now. Thanks again for being here!
We’ve some pretty exciting stuff coming out this week! First of all we’ll have some shirts for Wet Blanket! Here’s the design we’ve been throwing around:
We’ll have a good variety of colors for the shirts and might even have some hoodies as well! We’re also designing some mugs because…well, we’re Binary Cocoa and it just sounded appropriate. Fun times! I’m not exactly sure when they’ll be available this week but I’ll post something here on the blog and our Twitter page when it goes down. Thanks for sticking with us!
