Last month the developers of the Fable series announced that they would launching a Kickstarter for a Fable card game. Titled Fable Fortune, players get to choose from eight “deck-altering heroes” and reduce your opponent’s health to zero with an assortment of magic and other attacks. Fable Fortune will include various characters, lore, and jokes from Fable‘s history, as well as “completing mid-match “quests” like casting certain types of card or spending enough mana will allow you to make a good or evil choice, transforming your hero, their powers, and even morphing certain cards into new forms.” Flaming Fowl Studios recently announced that they had secured additional funding and will be shutting down the game’s Kickstarter to move on to the next step.
“It’s in this spirit that today we can share some amazing news with you. Thanks to your enthusiasm and support, we are happy to announce that we’ve successfully secured additional development funding! This, alongside our ongoing personal investment, will mean that we can continue to improve the game and allow even more of you to start playing.
“With the immediate future of Fable Fortune now secure, we have taken the decision to end our Kickstarter campaign early to focus on releasing a Closed Beta build as quickly as possible. As we’ve always stated, we want to make this game with your help, your feedback and your input. We have huge plans for Fortune and we know that whatever happens in the future, it all started with our already incredible community.”
