Velociraptor! Cannibalism! is a card game of survival, mutation, and the occasional volcano.
Based on a crude understanding of natural selection, Velociraptor! Cannibalism! puts you in the role of a young, eager, and bright-eyed heartless killer. As a velociraptor, you must find prey, survive environmental disaster, mutate, and steal the bodies of your enemies.
You play a velociraptor that mutates in bizarre, horrifying, and hilarious ways. New body parts increase your food requirements, better parts costing more calories. Explore the jungle to find food, and reproduce or mutate further in times of plenty. Attack your opponents to steal their parts or children. Avoid going hungry at all costs.
Designed at the Global Game Jam, this game was created by six game designers who all enjoy the weird, the funny and the fun.
Go hunting, eat cute critters, fight predators, mutate new body parts, feed your form, and reproduce. And occasionally gobble them back down! Below is a brief overview of the best velociraptor card game ever made that incorporates eating your own young and sprouting a tentacle head.
Velociraptor! Cannibalism! is a game for 3 -6 players. You play a velociraptor that grafts new body parts onto your character, mutating your creature in bizarre, horrifying, and hilarious ways.
