Skull

Wednesday, 14th April 2021 ◆ Air clan's lobotomy of the skull (7)

Skull is a beautiful party game which revolves around bluffing, and marks my fourth released adaptation on BGA. It comes from designer Hervé Marly.

The twist is that you must always turn over your own coasters first - so if you place a bid, you are implying you don't have Skulls on your mat. But perhaps you are just trying to goad other players into bidding higher!

We had two days to create a game based around the theme Spring.

My entry is Springdoku, a small puzzle game reminiscent of Sudokus, and – if I may be generous – The Witness. You can play it over at Itch:

Now being without job, I want to enter a couple of game jams this year. My first submission is to 7DRL, a yearly jam in which the goal is to create a roguelike game in 7 days. My game, Escorial, is complete, and you can play it over at itch:
