The game is hoping to launch next year, and the company has introduced a Kickstarter bid to support is development.
The London based game company has launched its Kickstarter campaign to reach a funding goal of £7,000 by October 1st 2016. In its launch, the fund achieved donations of over £1,700 and will continue to accept donations until the end of September.
Helping to fund this project through the Kickstarter campaign is the only way to ensure the game’s creation, and so the company behind the game is encouraging users to sign up and donate by providing various rewards.
Furious KRAKEN is asking its backers to complete various amusing social media and online content achievements to unlock new cards for the game. It comes in two ‘flavours’, SPIRIT® Origin, the original game and SPIRIT® STEALTH, which is a streamlined, simplified version of the game designed for anyone, not just gamers.
Creator of the game, Ben Jason Frary, commented: “SPIRIT® is an entirely unique drinking game as it allows players to include those who don’t drink alcohol. Instead, non-drinking players substitute their punishment shots to a shot of something they dislike the taste of.
“Beta testers of our game have loved the product, commenting that the SPIRIT® ‘makes drinking over aged 30 fun again’ and that ‘its rules are easy to remember, even after four shots of tequila!’.
“We want to change the way people play drinking games to include everyone and anyone. No one wants to miss out on a games night because they don’t drink!”
The latest figures from the Office of National Statistics shows that 22% of UK adults are now tee-total, and with the national Macmillan Cancer scheme ‘Go Sober for October’ fast approaching, games like SPIRIT® could be a welcome addition to any home.
SPIRIT® is survival game where players protect their own ‘life shots’ while playing cards to remove their opponents’ “life shots”. In order to play a card, the player must pay its cost (which can be seconds of casual drink, a shot or even your own ‘life shot’).
As the game supports non-alcohol players, the ‘life shots’ and shots can be substituted for a shot of something that player hates the taste of, while the casual drink can be any drink the player chooses.
SPIRIT® is an independent card game that is currently gaining funding through Kickstarter. If you’d like more information on the game, or you want to make a donation, please visit the Furious KRAKEN funding page.
