Philadelphia’s game development scene is one fantastic scene to be a part of.
Whether we’re talking about video games, board games, card games, or tabletop games, if it’s been built in Philadelphia and is part of the world of gaming, we are thrilled to honor it.
These French Fires are Terrible Hot Dogs
In Shawn Pierre’s card game, players use lies and deception to convince one another that they have the best hot dog, hat or other object. An IndieCade 2013 selection, and with nearly $20,000 in Kickstarter backers the game’s hilarious premise captured the public, which responded well.
Last year’s Game of the Year winner, Greg Lobanov, is back with another amazing title, Coin Crypt. A roguelike card game currently on Steam’s early access, Coin Crypt brings gamers into a world where coins are your weapons and currencyas you explore dungeons rich in coins and danger. He’s created a deep, immerse universe and once again continues to be a one-man development machine.
Drive to Hell
A free iOS and Android game, Drive to Hell is the debut title from Philadelphia’s newest game studio, Ghost Crab Games. With an old school, shoot-em-up pixelated feel, it’s an exciting retro game with a thrilling soundtrack. A two-person team run by Chris Hoopes and Dustin Twilley, Ghost Crab has released a great debut title. We can’t wait to see what they do next.
