We got a chance to look at Cryptozoic’s latest project, the DC Comics Deck Building Game on Thursday morning. Cryptozoic has been a strong presence building geek culture games, adopting Penny Arcade, The Walking Dead, and The Big Bang Theory. Now their aim is to adopt DC’s comic universe into the next big game.

I spoke with Matt, one of the game’s designers and one of the designers behind the VS System, and we demonstrated the game at the Cryptozoic Shop. The game was quick and easy to pick up, filled with comic art and well themed for the game’s objectives.

One of the best selling points for the game was the art, featuring iconic clips from the hottest titles DC has in print. Playing the game was greatly enhanced by the memorable art work.

The game is set to release sometime in September, and Matt mentioned they will continue to preview the game during GenCon this year.
