STATES CHRONICLE – After the card game had an incredible amount of success, iOS brings Exploding Kittens to your phone. The roaring success of the game was attributed to its likeliness to now famous Cards against Humanity, a game which brings out the worst in people.
iOS brings Exploding Kittens to your phone after the incredible success that the card game had on Kickstarter, being one of the most funded projects that ever emerged from the platform. It seems that the game is breaking record after record being the most funded game, the game with the most individual received funds (219,000 people contributed with almost $8.8 million) and now, at only a day after it was released, the game managed to reach number 1 in the Paid App top.
While Cards against Humanity, with which Exploding Kittens were associated, manages to bring out the worse in people and make them build friendships after realizing the lack of humanity in their peers, Exploding Kitten does the exact same opposite. The Russian Roulette of card games helps you ruin your friendships more than Uno or Monopoly ever managed to.
The basic principle of the game is that the players pull cards one by one until they find an exploding kitten. But things get more complicated because you can defuse the furry danger with sandwiches made out of catnip or belly rubs, and you can also sabotage other players and send an exploding kitten to them.
iOS brings Exploding Kittens to your phone with little changes in the original card game. The developers, Shane Small and Elan Lee partnered with Substantial studio in order to transform the game into a full-functioning app. In order to make the App more appealing for all players, they modified the game a little.
According to Small and Lee, the Exploding Kittens App features some new mechanics, new art, voices and sounds. Also new cards have been added while some were removed. But all in all, the game is still as fun to play on your phone as it is when you play it in the card form with your friends.
What is more remarkable when it comes to the App’s overall success is that the digital version, which costs only $1.99, can only be played with other people that are in the same rooms as yourself. This is due to a combination between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology.
While iOS brings Exploding Kittens to your phone, Android and Blackberry aren’t far away with the development, either.
