Meat-slinging Abraham Lincoln rewrites anti-history in Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game

Flying in the palmed face of such nascent alternate Abraham Lincoln anti-histories as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, comes Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game, a Kickstarter-backed card game promising the "fun and simple" appeal of a meat-slinging, dino-slaying, 8-bit Abraham Lincoln. The baroque rulebook, point system, and concept is available on the Kickstarter page, where you can pledge your way from basic 200-card pacakge to fully customizable cards. 

Lincoln travels through space and time fighting enemies such as Luchadores, Puking Turtles, Skateboarding Dinosaurs, and Laser Sharks while using his trusty beardarang and whatever weapons we can get his hands on. (They're usually made of some kind of meat.) ... Yes, it’s a card game… based off of the unreleased video game… that was based off of a card game… that was based off of classes NES-era video games.

Meanwhile, Daniel Day Lewis remains presumably unarmed and historically accurate.
