Blue Manchu's Card Hunter coming to tablets

Seattle-based mobile game studio DropForge Games announced today that it will bring Blue Manchu's hybrid role-playing and card collection game Card Hunter to tablets.

The game first launched on PC in September 2013 and was a result of a collaboration between the independent team at Blue Manchu and the original designer and business manager of Magic: The Gathering, Richard Garfield and Skaff Elias. The free-to-play title involves deck-building, turn-based battles and has board game elements. Polygon's hands-on with Card Hunter can be read here.

Speaking to Polygon, DropForge Games' Joe McDonagh said the tablet version of the game will be slightly different to the PC version because the developers want to make sure it's a "great tablet experience."

"We need to do a lot of work on the UI and UX for that to be the case," he said. "I have assembled a team of ex-PopCap people here in Seattle to build it, so I hope we can add some PopCap polish to the game. We're also going to create some new adventures in addition to those in the PC game."

A launch date has not yet been finalized for the tablet version of the game.
