For all of the science nerds on my readership, here is a Kickstarter that is right up your alley. Please watch the video on the link.
The designers of Student Bodies, Angry Duck Games, have put their latest project, Petri Wars, up on Kickstarter. Petri Wars is an area control strategy game for 2-4 players. The players must grow their bacteria colony, harvest DNA, and destroy their competition.
Featuring the art of Tony Steele (www.steeleworks.moonfruit.com), Petri Wars is expecting to ship in December 2015/January 2016. Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign can select reward levels from $1-$250. Rewards for contributions can include: copies of Petri Wars, Petri Wars T-Shirts (S-XXL), copies of the game autographed by Angry Duck Games, and prints of the cover art autographed by Tony Steele.
“While the game seems simplistic, it was surprisingly strategic as the turns progressed. Yet, at the same time, it was incredibly easy to learn how to play. The player screen/cheat sheets where very well done, and included all the information you need to keep game flow moving – even with a table full of demo players!” – Val Cassotta
“Once you pick up the significance of the different actions (very cool that each organism/mutation is a specific action), it is really easy to figure out a good strategy.” – Joe Cook
