These are pitch materials from a mobile card game my friend Rich and I wanted to make. The whole thing was based on the idea of “who would win in a fight x or y?” except with public domain literary characters (and items to help them out). It didn’t pan out because it’s really freakin’ hard to sell something that involves knowing what books are (outside of “you know, people have heard of this Sherlock Holmes guy”) to a company. Now I want to kickstart a physical card game. We’ll see how that goes. It still needs a lot of designing and we’ve all been very busy since the layoffs.
On a side note, I’m pretty proud of the card design. I don’t do a lot of that sort of thing so there was a big learning curve. The book and frame motif work pretty well though. The card back is based on some earlier penguin books- because penguin books are great.
