Our vision was to create a Cross-Platform CCG and combine that with a deeper layer of tactical gameplay. We wanted to wrap it in a fun, edgy IP that would stand out on all platforms as unique. In exploring concepts for the IP, we landed on having outlandish phobias that are all locked up deep inside the surreal and fleeting landscape of your mind.
