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

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

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