Earlier this month, creators of the hit Kickstarter-funded card game project, Bears vs. Babies, Elan Lee and Matthew Inman, announced shipping confirmation details. The duo revealed that the game copies are almost ready.
Bears vs. Babies is described as a card game with one goal: for players to create monsters that go to war with babies. Players sit in a circle and draw cards. Each player picks two types of cards (bears and babies). Bears are to built and will include heads, torsos, arms, and legs. Babies are played immediately into the center of the table. They will form a baby army, which must be stopped by all players in the game. Players will go to war by provoking babies. If the monster is stronger than the babies, they will win that battle and eat those babies. If babies are strong than creatures, they will win and your army will be devoured.
During the campaign, which successfully raised $3,215,679 from 85,581 backers, Inman stated:
“A few years ago, I started working on a game based on my comic, The Oatmeal, where you connect heads, torsos, arms, and legs to create a variety of monsters based on characters from my comic, such as the Bear-O-Dactyl. The original version of this game was doodled onto paper cutouts, and had no functioning game mechanic other than ‘build funny-looking things.’”
In the latest update, Inman and Lee shared an infographic that showed what backers are going to expect with their game, along with when the game will be shipped:
Lee and Inman previously raised $8,782,571 from 219,382 backers for their hit game, Exploding Kittens.
