The World Needs A Jetpack Unicorn!!

12/07/2013

At DFTBA News we are committed to bringing you the content you want.  Which is why when we heard that Kristina Horner and Joe Homes of Team HyperCube were creating a new game with Wyrd Games (The creators of Evil Baby Orphanage) we jumped at the chance for an interview.  So naturally we set out to talk to Kristina Horner who is obviously far more pink than Joe.

The interview itself is focused on questions that were not already answered in the KickStarter video or the subsequent YouTube play through.  So, we recommend you watch those first, contribute to their campaign, and then check out the interview.  If you read to the end it will be worth your time (:

Demo Questions
DFTBA News: During your demo play through of a few rounds it seems there was only one question asked to each person.  Was this a player choice or a recommended setting for the game?

Kristina Horner: We’re pretty loose with the rules – we found it helps the game move faster and lets everyone have equal play time if you limit it to one question per person, but when you’re playing at home with your friends – ask as many as you like!

DFTBAN: The game says 3+ players and during the demo you had 4 and one person was always sitting out.  Is there a different format that may be introduced that has more players involved than just basic 3?

KH: The game is recommended for 3-5 players, to minimize the “sitting out” time. If you play with 6+, we have special advanced rules that allows for team play.

DFTBAN: Have you considered scenario’s that have more than two options?

KH: All scenarios have at least two options! That’s the point of the game… having to choose between these two options!

Deck Questions
DFTBAN: Will the official deck contain blank cards for customization?

KH: You can buy a set of 18 blank cards as a $10 add-on in the KickStarter right now. Beyond that, we might put blanks in future expansions, but there won’t be any in the first version of the game that hits stores.

DFTBAN: The Kick Starter says it has 265 cards.  How are they cards divided? Is it 133/132 for scenario/transmog cards or is it different?

KH: There are more Transmog cards there are Scenario cards, since you burn through them twice as quickly. There are 100 Scenarios, 150 Transmogs, and 15 Round cards.

DFTBAN: Since this is produced by Wyrd Games and you have ties to Nerd Fighters are there going to be any cross over cards with either one; such as Evil Baby Tina or NF esque cards in the game.

KH: All I will say is, it would be silly for there NOT to be. 😉

General Questions
DFTBAN: Are there any planned expansions in the future.  Like a themed expansion for Cons, “Would you rather room with somebody you don’t know or sleep in the hall in just your underwear?” type questions.

KH: Haha, great question! I love that idea. I can’t say anything specifically yet, but we DO have some great expansion ideas planned. 🙂

DFTBAN: After the initial Kick Starter how long before the actual decks are out and where can you get it if you didn’t pre-order?

KH: We plan to at least demo the game at VidCon, and we’ll definitely have the full game at GenCon. End of summer, is what I will say tentatively.

DFTBAN: Have you ever considered an iOS version of the game?

KH: Whenever I bring up these crazy ideas, the guys at Wyrd tell me to stop thinking so big. Haha. But hopefully they’ll come around to the idea soon! It’s definitely something we’ve thought about!

Well that was the questions we had for Kristina.  If you have questions about Jetpack Unicorn please send a tweet to her @KristinaHorner or @Plus2Joe.

Why did I ask you to read to the end?  Well my friends and followers we have a treat for you.  DFTBA News will be getting their hands on a full version of the game, the special set of promotional cards, a poster, and access to print and play(this is equivalent to the 33$ perk on the KickStarter)  just for you!
