Pixel Lincoln: End of Week Recap

What better way to end a work week than a BOSS FIGHT!

We've been revealing the cards for Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game each day at both and but here at Fruitless Pursuits you can get them all in one place.

Look for the Beardarang, a taco-throwing Luchador, a head-banging NPC, hi-fiving extra lives, and a totally boss final boss... right after the jump!

The BEARDARANG! What is it?

Well, it’s Pixel Lincoln’s base weapon. And what else would he use other than his beard? He throws his beard and it immediately grows back!

Luchadores are the basic infantry in Pixel Lincoln. John Wilkes Booth has gathered all of his actor friends to gang up and keep Pixel Lincoln from reaching him. The actors dress up as Luchadores to look more menacing (naturally) and throw whatever they can get their hands on. Even if it’s their lunch.

Here is Kissfit (haha). He is a roadie, who dropped out of school to work with the bands that he loves. Sometimes he gets ahead of himself and ends up getting hurt. He can’t help it, he loves metal and when the music starts, he loses all control. He should probably think about getting a new job.

It’s an extra life! Very handy in video games, especially the HARD ones. In the Pixel Lincoln DS game, you may come across one of these statues. If you get close enough, Pixel Lincoln will hi five the statue, giving the player one extra life.

In the card game, Secret Items are shuffled into the level deck and randomly drawn. As soon as one is revealed, the game can become a race to pick it up. They are rare, powerful, and best of all free!

Totally T-Rex hangs out at a half pipe that was naturally formed in between two volcanoes… and if you cross his path, he will totally destroy you. With a power of 6, you better save up your best weapons and knock him out before he gets to you first.

That's all for this week. We'll start it all up again on Monday. We also hit our $10,000 stretch goal, so all backers will get Pixel Lincoln meeples with their copy of the game. Our next goal is $20,000, where we will be able to add a level board into the game. Check it out!

If you like old-school video games, and you're looking for an all new style of deckbuilding games, please support Pixel Lincoln on Kickstarter! We have some great stretch rewards and custom character cards for our backers. Thanks everyone!
