In collaboration with The game Band, Snowman, the developers behind the popular snowboarding game Alto’s Adventure, have announced a new game called Where Cards Fall. The game will ask you to build structures, then destory and then build them again in new ways, with a story being told as you do.
In an interview with The Verge, developers Sam Rosenthal and Ryan Cash elaborated on how the cards interact with the story.
Where Cards Fall doesn’t use cut scenes to tell its story, but instead builds its narrative through the way the various ways the player interacts with the game. “The houses of cards become homes for characters, platforms to traverse, places to visit, and so much more,” Rosenthal explains.
The developers hope that Where Cards Fall can be as accessible as Alto’s Adventure is, with simple, one-button gameplay seen as easy enough for anyone to pick up. There is not yet a release date for the game, but according to Snowman’s blog, more information will be coming in the next few months. In the meantime, you can sign up for updates on the game‘s official site.
