North Star Digital Studios is launching Evolution: The Video Game, based on parent company North Star Games’ award-winning 2014 card game, Evolution. To celebrate the launch, they’re partnering with military veterans’ charity Stack Up for an all day live streaming marathon today.
The stream will begin at 7 am Pacific/10 am Eastern at North Star Games’ Twitch channel. Members of the development team will play Evolution: The Video Game. They will also feature a rotating selection of guest streamers, tvgBadger, bifuteki, and yujoon.
The show will begin and end with a talk show-style format. Members of North Star Digital Studios will discuss the game’s development, including art and mechanics, as well as Stack Up’s charity work.
Stack Up is a charity program aimed at helping members of the US armed services. It includes suicide prevention, mental health advocacy, and support networks. Its Supply Crate program helps bring donated video games and other entertainment to deployed military members.
The all day stream will end tonight at 11pm Pacific/2 am Eastern.
Evolution is a card game in which players must grow their own species in size and population. Select important traits with cards, avoid carnivores, and amass the most amount of food before the deck runs out.
At launch the video game includes a 24-level single player campaign, online and local multiplayer, and cross-platform play.
Evolution: The Video Game is available on PC (Steam), iOS, and Android mobile devices. You can grab it for 20% off during the discount launch sale through Feb. 18.
