After a lot of hustle and hard work this month, I’m excited to finally be able to share a playable public demo for my upcoming “Missile Command meets strategy card game” project, called Missile Cards.
The game is headed to Steam in the coming months, but before I can get it launched on the platform, it has to pass the voting gauntlet that is Steam Greenlight. That’s been slow going, despite an enthusiastic response from quite a few folks.
To help push things along, I wanted to give players an opportunity to try Missile Cards out for themselves, and go hands-on with the first base/area of the game.
Each unlockable “base” area gives you a unique card deck to work through, and each solo match tasks you with clearing all of the hazard cards in the deck by using deployable defense cards and energy resources. Meanwhile, you must defend you bases from destruction.
It’s super challenging, and packs a lot of replay as you aim to complete specific challenges in each base to unlock the next, while amassing resources to unlock special powerful cards to add to your deck.
Here’s one of the harder later base levels in action:
DOWNLOAD THE DEMO, AND PLEASE VOTE ON STEAM!
The game is coming along rapidly, but Steam Greenlight remains a hurdle I have to overcome in order to see this through to launch in the coming months. Hence the public demo.
You can download the demo here on itch.io right now!

I’d also appreciate any feedback you might have to help improve the game, and I’ll be sending out a meatier build with more of the game for testing to my private Beta tester group. Join my mailing list and ping me if you’d like to help Beta test!
