The Storybook Brawl card game launcher was launched in Early Access on Steam yesterday, giving you the opportunity to write "your favorite characters from history and myth," such as the neutral "Snow Wight," or "Princess Peep and Her Hardened Sheep in Battle." Each fairy tale character has unique abilities.
Thanks to its great theme and wide user interface, Storybook Brawl presents itself as a type of game that is easy to learn, but difficult to master. "The goal was to create a game where everyone could come in and have fun," says designer Matt Place, who was champion of the Magic Pro Tour before dedicating himself to game design. "Fairy tales offer us a wide variety of characters with different personalities and attributes to explore, and it allows us to make a very accessible game that isn't too complex but has a deep strategy for those who want it."
The studio, Good Luck Games, is run by three former professional card players who have since moved on to game design, working on projects that include Hearthstone and Elder Scrolls: Legends before meeting to work on Storybook Brawl. After playing at such a high level, it’s interesting that they explicitly chose to make such a game accessible. Most Steam critics are already fans of the genre. (There are 33 comments about Storybook Brawl at the time of writing, with a "positive" average).
