I have always thought E3 as a Console game show with 3 practically referring to Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony. Obviously, not a true statement but did not think trading card game would be there especially a game that hasn’t even launched.
Following is an email we received as backers.
This morning, Cryptozoic, creators of the collectible card game for World of Warcraft , and board games for Walking Dead and DC Comics, wrapped up their first-ever Kickstarter for HEX: Shards of Fate. HEX is the world’s first Massively Multiplayer Online Trading Card Game, combining the best elements of MMO persistence and character building with a totally new and unique approach to digital deck building.
When the HEX Kickstarter was launched one short month ago, the original goal was $300,000, a number that Cryptozoic felt was achievable and would bring in enough funding to provide final polish for the game; that goal was achieved in less than a week. As of close for the project today, HEX has raised over $2.2 million, making this one of the most successful video game Kickstarter projects in history.
With the tremendous outpouring of backing from eager fans, Cryptozoic has pledged to add several new features to HEX, including:
Additional cards for all backers
A tablet version of HEX
Additional game features, including enhanced graphic effects, additional cities, quests and a crafting system
A HEX novel written by a premier fantasy writer
Now that the Kickstarter has come to a close, Cryptozoic is working towards launching Beta in September 2013.
If you’re attending E3, stop by and see HEX in action in a private demo room. Email email@example.com to make your appointment today!
