Every piece of art in CARD SHARK was hand printed, here's how it was made

Hundreds of prints and illustrations were created by Nicolai Troshinsky which were scanned and assembled into this card cheating adventure game

July 29, 2022 9:00 AM

CARD SHARK is a beautiful picture book styled video game where you cheat your way through 18th century France and every single graphic you see was hand printed and then scanned into the game.

Lead artist and animator Nicolai Troshinsky was inspired by a love of card magic and sleight of hand, as well as a 1975 Stanley Kubrick film to build this amazing and unique game and joins SIFTER for an in depth conversation about the process of design.
