Game On: DOOM ON YOU
“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.
Ok2Win is home of the family-friendly card games 3Up 3Down, Boom goes the Dynamite, and Doom on You. They make games that are fun for kids and adults. Their team of six is dedicated to making the world a better place, one game at a time.
DOOM ON YOU was launched on Kickstarter in February 2020 and soon reached its funding goal. Ok2Win thanked its backers and asked for feedback on stretch goals. They explained the expansion packs that include new animals with additional powers. Ok2Win also unlocked 2-player mode and upgraded the cards to premium cardstock. By the end of the campaign, 820 backers pledged $27,541 to help bring this project to life.
It’s the end of the world, and animals are fighting each other for Earth's’ remaining food. DOOM ON YOU is a family game of strategy, bribery, and destruction. Doom comes at every turn, and players aim to be the last animal with food. To begin the game, each player draws cards and receives food tokens. After that, the game alternates between Prep rounds and Attack rounds. In the Prep round, players draw cards and get their animals ready for battle. During the Attack round, players take turns being attacked.
Each animal has different abilities that aid the player in their attacks. Not every attack is easy and players never know if their opponents have a battle card like Deflect or Capture. The animals included in the game are Alpaca-Punch, Camo, Klaw-La, Hunting Bird, Flame-Ingo, Deter-Tle, and Hand-A. Doom cards bring up natural disasters, food destruction, and thievery. Batte cards allow players to hunt, use a force field, deflect, capture, or sneak attack.
