Cryptozoic will have in booth demos at Gen Con of five new titles, which will also be for sale in very limited quantities:
Adventure Time Card Wars: Doubles Tournament – This new game takes the familiar format of Adventure Time Card Wars and doubles up on everything as players compete against one another in teams of two. Winners of the tournament will be rewarded with exclusive Cartoon Network medals.
Internal Affairs – In this code-cracking game, it’s your job to ferret out your foes and learn who is ultimately loyal to whom.
Mad Science Foundation – Fulfill your wildest fantasies of being a mad scientist as you collect insane resources, construct impossible inventions, and press big, red buttons in your personal quest for infamy. Mad Science Foundation creator Sharang Biswas will be at Cryptozoic’s booth throughout the convention demoing the game, answering questions, and signing copies of the game.
Poker Assault – The classic game of poker you thought you knew has been reimagined as a game of combat. Get ready to craft killer hands, experience decisive moments, and have non-stop fun with every turn of the cards.
Rick and Morty: Mr. Meeseeks’ Box o’ Fun Dice and Dares Game – This new adult dice game based on the hilarious Rick and Morty episode “Meeseeks and Destroy” asks you to complete Requests using dice and the help of Mr. Meeseeks. The longer you take, the more Meeseeks you’ll need to call and the more demeaning Dares you’ll have to do.
Additional Game Demos
In addition to the games mentioned above, there will be a multitude of other games demoed at Cryptozoic’s booth, including The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary, which will complete its successful Kickstarter campaign later today.
