Karmaka’s Art Lived Multiple Lives: Part 2, The Box

As I mentioned in my last post, after having painted a version or two of all the cards in Karmaka, it was time to tackle the mother of all Karmaka paintings: the one that would be printed on the box. Dave and Eddy wanted a square-shaped box with an image that encapsulated the game’s characters, themes, and images. I […]

(These will be available for purchase on Society6, alongside the box art and the Karmic Ladder sometime in February.) I didn’t intend to write a blog post about […]

Karmaka’s Art Lived Multiple Lives: Part 1, The Cards

I’m Marco Bucci – I painted the cards, box art, and banners for Karmaka. I’ve been part of the team for two years. As I write this, the game is just weeks away from its kickstarter release. We have high hopes for this thing. But instead of looking into the future, I’m finding myself going back through Karmaka’s many lives, reliving […]

2015 Highlights: Karmaka at Boston Festival of Indie Games

One of the key highlights this year for Karmaka was the opportunity to attend the Boston Festival of Indie Games on MIT campus in Cambridge in September.

Karmaka Print and Play

This is a BIG moment in Karmaka’s development: we’re releasing a free Print and Play (PnP) of the game! You can download it from this page. For those unfamiliar with the PnP concept, it’s analogous to the free demo of a video-game. Download the files to your computer, print up the various components (cards, rules, […]

We’re *this close* to releasing a Karmaka print and play! One thing we just finished creating is a two-sided quick reference card – a handy rules summary for each player: The graphic design style for these cards is based on the look Scott has created for Karmaka’s rules – coming soon! :)

The NEW Karmic Ladder

Here’s another sweet art update for y’all: the NEW “Karmic Ladder”, by Lane Brown. We had revealed the original Ladder by Marco in the Spring, but over the course of play-testing we’d gotten a not-insignificant amount of feedback saying the Ladder’s “woodcut” style didn’t quite fit the rest of the game’s art style. We had […]

Karmaka Graphic Design Update

One of the things we’ve focused on over the last month has been the graphic design of the cards for Karmaka. It’s primarily a card game, and we really want the cards to look their best! So we worked on them with a graphic designer, Scott Nicely, and have something we’re really happy with at […]
