Had a cracking chat today with Jack from Heel Turn Games an Irish company now on Kickstarter with their 2 player competitive card game RADIANT.  It’s inspired by Multiplayer online battle arena games and a variety of other games.

The guys are hoping to make it up to the next Knavecon and show it off.  In the mean time check out their Kickstarter and support another great Irish games company
