Shadow Squirrel Games launched their game Fuzzy Mage Fight on Kickstarter on March 5, 2019. They were completely funded within 6 hours and started moving on to their stretch goals. They tempted the backers with the stretch goal of a unicorn that they would share its abilities if they were able to reach the stretch goal. 10 hours into the campaign they had unlocked their unicorn character. They were able to unlock four more potions with their stretch goals a fuzzy dolphin and a Dr Blixen who has the magical ability to sneeze on others. As they went on they were able to unlock a lot more stretch goals and successfully funded their campaign with $68,075 before the month was up.
Fuzzy Mage Fight is a game of fuzzy adorable mystical creatures whose ultimate goal is to become the most magical fuzzy mage ever. Players battle each other with unique abilities trying to collect 8 magic cards in their hand to win. On each turn the players will draw, attack, use an ability and place which card was defeated as an essence form of the creature. Essence form mages cannot win while they are in essence form but they can turn back into their fuzzy form by rolling the dice or by fusing with another mage.
Each of the Mages has special abilities that they can use while they are in Essence form. They can use options, spells, traps, and minions to aid their own quest and hinder their opponents. The spells and potions will enhance your battlefield with unique effects. Traps get revenge on the mages that attack you and minions provide you with an extra card for free with each turn. most of the cards are placed face down so you never know what you opponent is up to. to find out more about Fuzzy Mage fight or to view their kickstarter campaign please visit the links below.
