One of my favorite concepts is "fortune telling video games" and there actually seems to be quite a few - there's just something about the concept that draws designers to it I think. I know i've tried my hand at a few designs of fortune telling games. I'm only going to pick out a few here to highlight, but will probably make replies to this post showing off other games as they occur to me :P

Taboo: The Sixth Sense

this one was interesting because it was actually released on the NES. I always really liked the aesthetic of it, with the figured popping up from the cards. and it also had you type in your 'question' for the reading, which as far as I know did nothing other than help you feel like you were interacting more with the results.

oh my gosh I can't tell you how much I love the look of this game, the colors are just so fantastic and cute, and it's an indie game that's an actual NES rom! I would love to try to get this on an actual cart or something.

I remember reading an article somewhere about indie fortune telling games, but for the life of me I can't find it right now.



and not to toot my own horn :toot: but I made a pixel art tarot deck that you can check out here
