Dawn – Rise of the Occulites Colour Blind Friendly Update

G’day guys,

After testing the old Dawn – Rise of the Occulites cards with some friends that are colour blind, I decided to revamp the card design. The problem was that the numbers in the top, left hand corner whose colour determined whether the cards were BOOST, AGGRESSIVE or DEFENSIVE. They were difficult to tell apart (especially the blue and red of the DEFENSIVE and AGGRESSIVE). The new cards will differentiate this by a symbol behind a white number. There is a Spearhead for AGGRESSIVE, a Shield for DEFENSIVE and a Yellow Occulite Eye for BOOST cards.

The updated cards will each have a different illustration that reflects what the Card Effect is. This will also introduce a little bit more thematic flavour into the cards and hopefully immerse the players in the Occulites universe a bit more.

Below you can see a side by side comparison of the four different iterations the Dawn – Rise of the Occulites cards have gone through.

I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane… stay tuned for more exciting news coming soon!

Cheers,
Ben.

    This is a great,thoughtful move and it adds to the card’s overall good look as well. I like it!

    Thanks mate, I know a surprising number of people are colourblind and I don’t want it to be difficult for them to play.
