Strategic card game Draco Magi is in its final Kickstarter days and coming close to hitting its ninth stretch goal. Having received almost $60,000 in funding, it is the seventh successfully funded Kickstarter project by developer Robert Burke Games.
UPDATE: The article originally stated that Draco Magi is the developer's eighth successfully funded project on Kickstarter. It is, in fact, his seventh.
Robert Burke Games may not be a household name yet, but with six successfully funded Kickstarter projects under its belt and a seventh that is already almost 400% funded, this small tabletop and card game developer is working on what promises to be its most popular game yet.
Named Draco Magi, the two-player strategic card game takes about 30 minutes to play and tasks players with collecting gems by winning dragon versus dragon battles across battlefields that grant bonuses to different dragon types. Featuring stunning artwork that gives it the appearance of having a major publisher behind it, the game will retail for $25 upon launch, but backers can buy the full game for $15 - plus the minimum pledge of $1.
Robert Burke Games has raised over $125,000 in funding on Kickstarter since 2012. With four days left to go before its funding period has ended, Draco Magi has already received almost $60,000 in pledges, attaining eight stretch goals and only $2000 away from a ninth. "My games would not exist without Kickstarter," Robert Burke told The Escapist. "It helps me fund my ideas and transform them into real products."
