I don't like nor dislike tabletop games because I simply don't play them.
But I am also very interested to see how it can work. So I want to see it with my eyes.

Hope I will be able to kick S.H.I.V.A. butt in this game.

(Before you asked, I wanted to include all possible requests for info Mateusz was responding to, hence the semi-unnecessary multiple asks for more.)

"Za szybko" apparently means "too fast", i.e. the game won't be out for a while.

something something Artifact

XD

I don't know. The idea of holding something tangible and officially Sub-related is exciting to me.

Also, guess Mat has officially left the forum since he's now announcing games everywhere except here :c

Oh, and this recap of the development cycle of the card game from Mateusz' own site should not go unnoticed. (Source.)

Announcement teaser.

August 26th 2019

Game is revealed on social media.

“I’ve created a SUBMACHINE CARD GAME.
A real, physical, tabletop card game that you play with your friends or family. It’s not a computer game. The game is completely developed, playable and tested on my friends who never played Submachine and they still loved it. Which is promising. Each play session will be unique, there’s no game board, your exploration takes you in different directions each time you play.
Long story short – I’m attacking new market with Submachine! Keep your fingers crossed and let me know if you’re interested in it.”


This confirms that, as Mateusz implied, this game really was made as a splurge of creativity during his small vacation from creating TBG. In four days too. I hope he's play tested it enough, though. I know some games accidentally get unfair exploits if not well balanced.

Wow, six days? That's a lot shorter than I would have thought. Especially since the gameplay has "each session being unique". I wonder if it has rules adapted from another game or if it's completely new stuff.

Same here!

Too bad there won't updates for S:CG in a long time, was really excited to know how the whole thing works.

My guess based on the

Quote:

statement is that the game has a bunch of Room Cards, possibly of the Basement and other areas, which you play to expand your play area. You'll change to a new "type" of area through a portal card. This naturally leads to a new "exploration" of the net every time.

EDIT: To clarify, I mean that you set cards on the table to create the "map", so to speak.

And finally this thread.

According to Google translate:

"Michał Stępowski tak mi się z Tobą zaraz skojarzyło nie wiem czy znasz"
"Michał Stępowski reminded me of you so I don't know if you know"

"Nic mi to nie mówi, ale nic dziwnego skoro testował tylko na grupie przyjaciół"
"This tells me nothing, but no wonder since he tested only on a group of friends"

"no na wersję analogową trzeba poczekać, póki co są cyfrowe"
"you have to wait for the analog version, for now they are digital"

"testowane na znajomych nie-fanach i na dzieciach. :D przechodzę do kolejnej fazy testów na prawdziwych graczach karciankowo-planszowych."
"tested on non-fan friends and on children. : D I go to the next phase of testing on real card and board players."

"Mateusz Skutnik to ten Pan Michał Stępowski to ekspert w dziedzinie☺"
"Mateusz Skutnik is this Mr. Michał Stępowski is an expert in the field"

"Bardzo mi miło. Grałbym z panem Michałem, ale mam tylko jeden deck, prototypowy."
"I'm very pleased. I would play with Mr. Michał, but I only have one prototype deck."

So now we also know of testing the deck with children. I imagine the cards must have been printed paper, otherwise... how would he even have tested it?
