We finally got Volume 1 sent off to the printers, so now we can look towards the future. Here are the very first early sketches for cards from Volume 2 of Story War! This is Vondell’s first sketch of Police Dog and Cat Burglar, who are the fuzz and the furry underbelly of Volume 2’s more urban setting.
Also hey is that a dramatically different tone and creative direction? Yes, it is! Volume 1 focused on popular concepts from fairy tales and mythology, and volume 2 will focus on popular concepts from action movies and saturday morning cartoons. But also we don’t want everyone to be a dumb old human like they are in those mediums so there’s going to be a lot of anthropomorphic characters.
Giving animal attributes to a Story War card really adds a lot of depth to the gameplay - you already know Police Dog is good at smelling and Cat Burglar has night vision without having to define those powers on the cards!
Ah man! I’m already so stoked about Volume 2! GET STOKED.
