Putting It Together
Hex ScreenAs a Kickstarter project, some might think that Hex is a ways out — but Cryptozoic has been hard at work for the past two years completing their digital baby. The care shows in their Kickstarter updates and fans have flocked to the project with very high dollar amounts. With the average video game Kickstarter backer throwing down about $45 per project, Hex blows that figure away with about $145 per backer.

If Hex were coming from a game company with no history in TCGs and board games, I'd be a little bit skeptical about whether they could deliver. Cryptozoic is full of experts, though, and Hex appears to be exactly what RPG and TCG fans are looking for in the digital space. There are still some questions to be answered, though — will the client be friendly to use? How will the tablet touch interface work? Will hardcore TCG players warm up to a new, all-digital game? All of these questions will find their answers once the game launches in the Fall. However, there is one question I well know the answer to.

Will I be playing Hex when it debuts? Of course.
