How do you design and test a game where every one of its 150 cards is its own self-contained game? In a case study around Exploding Kittens' recently-released game Without Fail, we take a deep look at the development pipeline for this mass-market tabletop game, and demonstrate how other game designers and publishers can utilize these practices to manage their own large-scope game pipelines, while remaining both approachable and accessible to a broad audience.
Attendees will gain insight into the design, development, balancing, and testing processes for a published mass-market party game. This talk will focus on managing the development pipeline of a content-heavy game with hundreds of possible unique player behaviors.
The target audience of this session is tabletop game designers, developers, and publishers who are interested in gaining insight into the design process for a large-scope board game with a mass market audience. While some practical experience in developing tabletop games will provide added context, no prerequisite knowledge is necessary.
