San Francisco, CA – On March 8 2017 XXM founders Ian and Dawn launched a Kickstarter campaign for Sad Piggies, a morbid yet entertaining 2 to 4-person card game where players help pigs die honorably. It’s sort of like monopoly but you collect pig’s corpses instead of properties.
“Sad Piggies began on a bleak day at work. I turned to my co-worker, Dawn, and began talking about how the office felt like pigs being sent to the slaughter. We figured that it would be really cool if the pigs were able to finally take charge of their own deaths instead,” Ian explains, “And so, the first seeds of the card game were sown.”
Ian has been creating e-commerce products for the past 5 years, so he knows the ins and outs of managing product lines, marketing, and shipping. Dawn, a passionate game lover and designer, is a talented UX/UI strategist who was ready to get her hands dirty to design her own game.
In Sad Piggies, players take turns drawing from a stack of cards. Tool Cards help you collect pigs and Action Cards give you a chance to steal piggy corpses from other players. There are also action cards that revive dead pigs, skip crucial turns, or steal the precious Deny Action card. Each game deck contains 60 playing cards and a rule book.
The XXM team is committed to getting the game shipped to backers by the end July 2017. The most time-consuming parts of developing the game are over. The result is a playable, fun card game with entertaining gameplay, ensured by vigorous play testing. Artwork for the cards is complete and has also been tested with player’s feedback. Now they have turned to the Kickstarter community to spread the word about this game and fund the final production of the cards.
“This is about you, our community of players. We put this project on Kickstarter because it’s the fastest way for us to get the game into your hands and make improvements as a community,” says the team, “We had a vision that future improvements or expansions would be community driven. This game is great, but we need your help to make it even better. So please help us and let’s go on this game making journey together!”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including a Sad Piggies Deck for as little as $20. A Game Deck and Mosaic Wall Poster based on the backer’s profile photo is available for $45. Backers can also pledge $55 for a Sad Piggies Game Deck and limited Kickstarter Edition iPhone case or $500 for a special Sad Piggies Game Deck with 12 customized cards!
The creators assure backers that no pigs were harmed in the testing and making of this game. For more information, please visit the Kickstarter page here or contact the creator below.
