“After working on BioShock and selling Irrational Games, I wanted to do something really different that appealed to my inner nerd. Card Hunter is the result.” said Jonathan Chey, CEO of Blue Manchu. “We’ve created a computer game that evokes the experience of playing a great fantasy RPG with your friends around a table – only with cards!”

Jump into Card Hunter at launch and play for free. For those who want more, get the new Basic Edition, which contains everything you need to get started, including all the single-player content, a host of extra figures and Club membership for just $25.

About Card Hunter

Card Hunter first came to the attention of a wider audience when Penny Arcade’s Tycho named it his game of the show at PAX Prime 2012. Since then the game has had 50,000 beta sign-ups.

In addition to it’s card-battling mechanics, Card Hunter uses addictive item collecting to fuel an all-new deck-building mechanic that revolutionises and streamlines the collectible card gaming genre. An extensive single-player experience is supplemented with the endless challenge of competitive multiplayer, powered up by a unique “reward track” that allows you to win and collect new cards purely by playing the game.
