Report article RSS Feed Hanafuda: Koi Koi nears release!

As the Entity Games team works really hard to bring you top quality games, we think we're finally at a stage where we can show more information regarding one of our projects. We've shown screenshots of our take on Hanafuda in the past but now that we're much farther into development we feel comfortable saying that this is even better than before as we've completely redone most of the game's look and feel.

As the Entity Games team works really hard to bring you top quality games, we think we're finally at a stage where we can show more information regarding one of our projects. We've shown screenshots of our take on Hanafuda in the past but now that we're much farther into development we feel comfortable saying that this is even better than before as we've completely redone most of the game's look and feel.

Koi Koi, a variant of Hanafuda is a traditional Japanese flower card game where two opponents use strategy, cunning, and a little bit of luck to attempt beat your opponent. Face off against computers of varying difficulty and keep track of your score, or even play online with your friends to see who is the Hanafuda master! Do you dare Koi koi?

Features

  • Play against a computer with your choice of Easy, Medium, and Hard AI
  • Intuitive touch interface for WP7
  • Native mouse and keyboard based controls for PC
  • Keep track of your high score and view your rankings against other players
  • Go head to head with other players online as Hanafuda: Koi Koi supports networking allowing you to play cross platform with Windows Phone 7 and PC players

 
 
 

Through polishing the game we've also been exploring different types of music. After trying some ambient electronica, and other forms of modern music we realized that the music that would fit our game the best would be some classic Japanese style music. After searching the internet and nearly paying $500 for music to be made, we stumbled upon this amazing song on a freely licensed music website. We couldn't be happier, thanks Kevin MacLeod!

Those are pretty old. I have a newer deck and unfortunately isn't from Nintendo. It's really cool that you still have a Nintendo deck though.

Very excited to read this. And I know a friend of mine who will be just as excited. Ever since I taught him to play koi koi we've been wanting to play online but haven't found where to do so.
