Card Hunter Summary
Free-to-play browser game Card Hunter is making the leap tolater this month, and joining it will be the Expedition to the Sky Citadel expansion which adds the Cardotron 2000 Game Master in a nod to System Shock 2.
The "card play, deck building, tactical combat" and fantasy RPG will be a standalone free-to-play client. The expansion includes co-op multiplayer. There was "no excuse not to embrace" the Steam community.
One of the co-founders of Irrational Games has struck out on his own to develop his own games. Jon Chey has started up his own studio in Canberra called Blue Manchu, and is developing a free-to-play strategy game, Card Hunter.
The game is described by Chey as "a board game/card game hybrid that you play on a computer, mixed with an RPG," as seen in the image to the left.
