BEACON TRANSCRIPT – A whole new card game has taken the Internet by assault, and it would seem that it has managed to exceed all expectations. In terms of card games, Exploding Kittens tops Cards against Humanity, making it the most successful and twisted game on the web.
Initially, Exploding Kittens came out in the form of a table card game. Basically, you have a heap load of cards, filled with pictures of cute and fuzzy kittens. Like in Cards against Humanity, players exchanged cards, which have special properties.
Seeing that the game is sprouting wings, the developers decided that it’s high time the game received a digital version. And so, with a bit of magic and a Kickstarter campaign, the developers managed to release the first mobile version of the game.
Presently, the game can only be run on Apple’s iOS, but the developers promised us that an Android and even a PC version is on the way. In terms of crowd funding, it would seem that the game managed to top off some of the other games created using funds from gamers.
According to an online report, soon after the developers started the Kickstarter campaign, they’ve managed to raise, in just a few months, no less than 8.7 million dollars, making Exploding Kittens the fourth most successful online game entirely funded by gamers.
Exploding Kittens tops Cards against Humanity in terms of gameplay, and humor. And it seems that the developers of the game even included a little “thank you” inside the application.
As of now, it seems that Exploding Kittens has managed to make it to the top, meaning that the game is now considered the number one game in the paid apps section.
The game can be bought from Apple’s online store for a modest fee of 2 bucks. Moreover, those who bought the game are entitled to receive all the game’s future add-ons for free (talking about gratitude!).
Exploding Kittens has a 2.9-star rating online, and the score is sure to rise if the developers manage to solve certain gaming issues. According to the feedbacks, it would seem that you can’t play the game over the web.
In order to play the game with your friends, they must have a copy of the game installed on their devices. Moreover, a session can only be establish using a local ad-hoc wi-fi network or over Bluetooth. The developers are still working to fix the issue, but they’ve declared that Exploding Kittens is the kind of game you would want to play with your friends, not with a random stranger.
