About Cosmic Cog

Fatal Core is, and always will be, a 100% purchase-free card game! Many modern TCGs suffer from the cumbersome nature of the pack sales model. From a player's point of view, a strategic victory is diminished if the driving force behind it is money. Furthermore, it is expensive to drive sales: an expert team is needed to constantly create, analyze, and improve incentives for players to purchase packs. This is not efficient for small-scale TCGs! The consequences of clinging to this outdated approach have caused many promising card games to shut down prematurely.

We are here to try a different approach. Fatal Core will be crowdfunded through Patreon and similar platforms. We run on a policy of transparency and open communication. Our goal is to put the player community, the voice of which all too often goes unheard, into a co-directing role.

When it comes to gameplay, Fatal Core is just as innovative! There is no mana. Turns are simultaneous, creatures are played onto a 3x2 field where each slot has a bonus specific to your Lead character. Hands are almost entirely open, enabling what we call "predictive play" -- anticipate your opponent's strategy and plan your own accordingly instead of simply playing your strongest cards! Decks are small, with rich deckbuilding oriented around card rank. Games are short but filled with excitement.

The game is currently in Beta, with a Steam release planned late this year. We are moving along at a brisk pace and making significant improvements several times each week.

With your support, we believe that we can make Fatal Core a strong contender in the TCG market. Perhaps we can start an important conversation about how games can generate revenue more fairly as well!
