Card Quest

by GAFBlizzard - Jam Entry

I intended to do the compo, but I was gone all Saturday afternoon and did not finish in time. This was made with compo rules but submitted for the jam instead. It's a super simple deckbuilder game.

The snowflake breakout was a nice touch.

Like the intro to the game. The break out part

The intro music is nice, you should have kept it playing during the card game. Takes a bit to figure out, but seems well thought out.

This was actually pretty fun, though the instruction were non existant. Like the others say the beginning was a great touch. Well Done!

Decent little card game once I got the hang of it. There really needed to be a tutorial ot something as card games can be tough to understand. I really liked the game though.

I'd recommend removing the breakout clone at the beginning. I just wanted to jump in and play the game.

Good work.

Kingdom of Loathing meets Magic the gathering. There is a lot of potential in this game. It would be a really cool browser game to play online :D

I don't know why dropbox is giving an error for accessing links right now. I can look for another host if this is still messed up tomorrow.

Card games are a cool idea! It doesnt seem to fit the theme very well, but is a bold idea.

Nice job!

Nice intro but need some skip button) didn't manage to play actually because I died at first fight and then Dropbox backup again. Sorry! Also add instruction please! Looks like it should be a great fun once I can try again)

Great gameplay. I had to play until I beat the 2nd guy, but couldn't beat the boss. Nice humor for boss. Strong sfx. Could use audio track during game.

Its ok, needs more hints on cards and in general.
p.s. Snowflake breakout was super annyoing, i dont know why it was a thing, why is there no button to skip it

The title screen is pretty funny! I like this style. Great job. But, the gameplay is little bit complicated.
Anyway the game is awesome!

Not a bad idea, but its kinda hard to understand...
The title screen breakout is total eye candy, I thought that was the actual game!

The only way I've found to kill the boss is to give up the defense. Only figthing, healing and getting card.
By the way I haven't understand what the C rank does.

Loved the interactive intro screen! (Maybe make it skipable though) - Also I'm a sucker for deck building games, so I really liked it, although it wasn't easy to understand all the cards.

Very nice! ;)

Nice! I played it a few times to try and beat it, and doing that was pretty fun! I haven't really played any deck-building games, so that was good!

A game of this length is probably the limit of what these rules could be used for though, as a lot is relying on luck, as you said on the page.

I also liked the intro :)

Also the card designs were a little cryptic, would've been nice to have some instructions in game

You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
