Creature College

Project image

In Creature College (from Happy Otter Games) you play a gifted young student determined to win the Creature College Cup. You’ll collect creatures, build your research lab, complete secret missions, and fight nail biting battles to smack down your foes and take home the prize! Creature College is easy to learn but has plenty of depth to challenge even experienced gamers. How should you build your research lab? Is it worth overbidding your opponent on a creature card? Should you use a creature in battle now or save it for later in the game? Creature College is on Kickstarter now. You can reserve your copy for just $49 (£32).

“Sometimes the best feedback you can get on a game is ‘This game just isn’t good enough’ even if it takes a long time to accept.” – Ben Pinchback
“Have you considered what makes your game special? I urge you to keep a focus on the hook of your game. Keep it in mind when designing. Keep it in mind when playtesting.”“ Ed P. Marriott
