Hi there, welcome to the inner circle of our newest project -
Carrot & Stick: a storytelling card game.
We are Matthew & Petya, the co-founders of Mindpipe Creative Studio. We are a slightly cooky creative couple, who love to design, make and play :)
For the last two years we have been designing, developing and testing our first ever game and we are now ready to share it with all of you :)
Below you can see our story, told in cards from our game.
We hope you enjoy it :)
Once upon a time, in a faraway land,
two people with reeeeealy giant heads
met on their first day of university in the biiig big city.
His name was Matthew and he was very tall,
very bearded and very very silly...
Her name was Petya and she was very smiley,
very loud and very very foreign...
They met and thought each other very nice,
with very nicely proportioned heads :)
They spent all their time together, doing art
and other ridiculous things, until one day they thought:
‘Why don’t we smooch and see how this thing goes’
This was 13 whole years ago...
Guess it went... quite well :)
The very way we met ...
The very way we met ...
university ended, and Matthew and Petya
headed off into the real world,
or as they knew it - Candyland!
It was going to be a magical place,
where Matthew would create fantastical creatures
on his magic typie box
and Petya would forge beautiful jewellery
for all the princesses in the land ... :)
And it worked ...
for a while ... :)
But then ... trouble!
But as luck would have it,
suddenly Candyland started shaking and stirring
and breaking apart!
Half of the citizens of Candyland
wished to remain in the giant Sweets Universe
they had grown so accustomed to,
but the other half said:
‘No! We want out! We want to be sweets aaaall by ourselves!’ ...
and suddenly life became a lot more
uncertain for Matthew and Petya
and they weren’t at all sure where they belonged...
So they packed their bags, veeeery quickly
and went on a trip to find liberty
and a sweeter place to live ...
And so they did - now they live
between two beautiful islands they love,
connected by an only very slightly
slimy and green magic portal ...
Now way on their way
to their new adventure,
Matthew and Petya diceded
to finally tie the knot.
After only 12 years together...
they finally had the biggest party ever,
with all their family and friends,
with plenty of sweet treats,
And then, there was the wedding ...
After all they had been through,
it was time for one more dream
that seemed just impossible enough
to be worth a try :)
For the last two years,
they had been using all their creativity,
to create a magical world of worlds,
full of adorable little peeps,
and mad ideas :)
This magical world, called Carrot & Stick
is finally here! Weeeeee! :)
