Pixel Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Today's Project of the Day at Kickstarter just happens to be my very own card game, Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game! This isn't the Nintendo DS version that's currently in development, but the all new card game that features a 16-Bit Abraham Lincoln equipped with a Sausage Link Whip, fighting against puking turtles and skateboarding dinosaurs. DId we mention that it plays like a side-scrolling video game?

Click through the jump for more info, the first gameplay video and the newly announced Kickstarter bonus Pixel Lincoln: Vampire Hunter cards.

A little info:

“Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game is based off to the upcoming Nintendo DS game: Pixel Lincoln. Our hero Pixel Lincoln is trying to save the world from John Wilkes Booth and his band of enemies, who stole Lincoln’s hat and disrupted the time-space continuum. Lincoln travels through space and time fighting enemies such as Luchadores, Puking Turtles, Skateboarding Dinosaurs, and Laser Sharks while using his trusty beardarang and whatever weapons we can get his hands on. (They’re usually made of some kind of meat.)”
The first gameplay video. Part two, which shows the side-scrolling levels, can be seen at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/pixel-lincoln-the-deckbuilding-game-0/posts

And here are the Pixel Lincoln: Vampire Hunter cards. Our animator/artist Nick Passamonti did a killer job on them.

Check back Friday for a recap of all of the week's updates, and for up-to-date information, check out the listing at Kickstarter!


  1. this is looking cool and crazy (I can't believe laser shark is an enemy).

    The youtube vid helps me understand it a bit more as I have no idea about deck building games except I guess "magic the gathering"? That's a similar thing yeah? Except this Pixel Lincon makes that MTG look like some sort of baby game

    1. Thanks Tim! We have Luke to thank for the Laser Shark.

      A deck building game is a little different from Magic the Gathering in that it's not collectible (you get everything in the box) and you don't bring your own deck to the game. Building the best deck is all part of the game. All of the cards you acquire become your deck and it gets better and better as you go on.
