Blacklist Games has launched the Kickstarter campaign for the newest design by Adam and Brady Sadler, Altar Quest. Altar Quest promises to be a cooperative fantasy adventure playable solo or with up to 4 players.
Altar Quest features the same modular deck system that the Sadler brothers introduced into their previous games Street Fighter and Brook City. According to the game’s description, the players each choose a unique hero who comes with their own cards and equipment decks. Then the players choose a quest, villain, and threat deck with which to play. There are no decks that the players need assemble – each of these decks is fixed – but the players may choose to mix and match.
