"You must build a boat. You must spring out of bed. You must bargain with the lizardman. You must heed your undead navigators. You must slide rows or columns of tiles on a 6×8 grid. You must match at least 3. You must run to the right. You must focus intently on 2 areas of the screen simultaneously. You must match keys to unlock chests and swords to attack. You must literally collect your thoughts and trade them for dragons. You must not dally. You must not be too hasty. You must voluntarily ramp up the difficulty by taking on multiple quests at once. You must incrementally reach your goals. You must build a boat. You must try again. You must try again x5. You must win every time, even when you don’t. "You must remain optimistic. You must upgrade your magic staff. You must occasionally stop playing to allow for your hand to uncramp. You must take credit for random chain combos you made no effort to arrange. You must trust a blue bean man to make dangerous investments with your money. You must forget about the blue bean man. You must mind the asp. You must reconcile that despite the game’s title, you begin your journey in possession of what is, in no uncertain terms, already a boat. You must build a boat. You must go all-in on the retro aesthetic. You must trade junk for gold with the voidorb. You must pray for salt. You must consume fish and tomatoes for time. You must venture through hell. You must disarm traps like your life depends on it. You must make an offering at the chapel. You must rally the Fantasy Union and the Undead Buddies to your cause. You must weigh anchor and methodically yet joyously hop in sync with your entire crew. You must feign interest in critiquing the gardener’s work. You must look up at the clock and wonder how it’s so late already. You must build a boat. You must build a boat! YOU MUST BUILD A BOAT!!!

Hankering for a good old collectable card game? Well, Outcast Odyssey might well be the game for you. It’s out right now on iOS and Android and features all of the card collecting and deck building you could hope for.
There are over 300 different cards to collect, and each of them can be evolved or fused to increase their power. You’ll have to figure out the best combination of these to build an awesome deck.
The truly ultimate decks require you to master a bunch of special abilities though, which can also be combined for greater effect.
Outcast Odyssey has just celebrated its one year anniversary so we reached out to Erik Wahlberg, Live Producer at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., to talk about which IAPs he’d recommend to new players, the best strategy for winning every game, and whether or not there are plans to host tournaments in the future.
In which territory has the game performed the best and why?
“Outcast Odyssey recently had its first anniversary, so we already know where our most devoted players come from.
“The United States, the UK, and Russia are among our most successful territories.”
Are there any differences between the Android and iOS versions?
“No. Since players can battle and interact across platforms we felt it was important that the game features and experience be as similar as possible.”
