Round five of #100exocards

Cards 40-50 of our guest card illustrations for #100exocards. I love the animals in this one! The innocent bristleslug getting its itchy berries plucked by a not-so-innocent Tangent. That lil caged hopeye in the Traveling Salesman.

And the fallen rock monster from Felling a Giant! We hadn’t ever drawn it before so it’s neat to have a visual reference for folks in the game now.

Round four of #100exocards

We’re still balancing the mechanics of the card game, and there are some bugs to fix (looking at you Pulling Weeds, what is a “non- card”?). And we’re working to tie card flavor to its mechanics and level, especially for unique, hard to get cards at the end of a quest or event chain.

Group 3 of #100exocards

Cards 20-30 of our amazing guest illustrations. Many are one-off rewards for beating challenges or reaching the end of certain story arcs, so even though we have close to 300 cards, you’ll only see 40-60 in each playthrough. These cards are your memories, and every life is different.

First Round of Guest Cards for Exocolonist

Last month we put out the call for guest illustrators to collaborate on #100exocards – one hundred cards by one hundred illustrators in their own styles. We received almost 300 applications, and had a very tough time selecting artists.

We tried to choose a variety of different art styles and diverse artist backgrounds. The artists have been sharing sketches on a private channel of our Discord server, and with the deadline approaching next week, the finished art is starting to roll in.

Here are the first ten cards!

They are amazing! I’m already blown away by the art people are sending in. It’s so soul-stirring to see scenes and characters from the game reinterpreted through their eyes. We’ve been working on this game for over 4 years and it’s finally starting to feel real with these.

And there’s more to come – we’ll be posting 10 a week here for the next couple months and sharing on social media with the hashtag #100exocards.
