Card Shark, the game about cheating, social mobility and getting stabbed by peasants, arrives June 2

Devolver Digital today announced that Card Shark, the game of cheating at cards, climbing the ranks of society and trying not to get murdered like a dog, will finally arrive on June 2nd.

Card Shark sounds really cool. Cheating is winning, as the saying goes, and getting caught is very bad news, but there’s a lot more going on here than just shuffling and trading. You’ll have to learn all sorts of tricks of the trade, use them to make money, and buy your way to better (and higher-stakes) games as you move from small provincial towns to lavish mansions in 18th century France. It’s a life of ups and downs, as Chris learned when he was stabbed in a crappy rural barn after trying to outsmart a local peasant in a game of Three-card Monte.
