Lead Initial Game Designer Peter Whalen gave an overview of how science and Hearthstone collide in The Boomsday Project, the upcoming expansion for Hearthstone.
As the expansion about science, The Boomsday Project explores crazy, Hearthstone-ified science, wacky scientists and their inventions, and the many experiments gone wrong. To illustrate this, Peter revealed three cards coming in The Boomsday Project:
- Flobbidinous Floop – As the Druid class scientist, Floop is a 4 mana 3/4 Legendary minion, but while he’s in the player’s hand, he transforms into a 3/4 copy of the last minion played. Floop promotes open-ended deck building and allows players to experiment in wild ways.
- Supercollider – A Warrior weapon that forces a minion to attack one of its neighbors if it survives. You know, a typical Warrior invention.
- Whizbang the Wonderful – The most wonderful scientist of all! With Whizbang in their deck, players start the game with a random deck recipe that Whizbang chooses. It’s 18 decks in one card and is a great way to experience lots of different decks and styles.
The kick off livestream will take place at 10 am PDT July 23 on our official Hearthstone Twitch channel!
