Interview with Matt Martinusen, Creator of The Catholic Card Game
How did you come up with the idea for the Catholic Card Game?
There are a lot of party games of this type and I wanted to make a version for the niche audience that I am a part of.
What was your favorite part of the deck making process?
I really enjoyed creating the content of the game, diving into to knowledge I had and collaborating with other people. We had to make 480 unique cards so it took some time to get the number of cards we needed with the right mix of content on the cards.
What was the crowd-funding experience like for you?
Crowdfunding was exciting and incredibly nerve-wracking. Watching the campaign creep along each day was super awesome to see the idea validated with backing but also stressful knowing that if we don’t hit our goal, we won’t get any funding.
What’s one piece of advice you would give to creators looking to make their own card game?
I would say that you have to know there is a hungry audience for the content. I didn’t know if this game would be a good fit, but I did know that there was an underserved audience with this type of product, like a party card game. I would also say that making connections in the audience who have a voice who can help share out the idea in order for it to get funded.
