What is This?

The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game (DFCO) is a tense, strategic co-op card game based on Jim Butcher's NYT bestselling novels. This is the home of the electronic edition of DFCO, developed by Hidden Achievement, for computers and mobile devices. If you came here looking for the tabletop edition, you can find out more at the official DFCO page at Evil Hat Productions.

About the Game

In the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, players take on the roles of Harry Dresden and his friends, teaming up to solve cases from the Dresden Files novels.

Each player plays a character from the novels (one of them is always Harry), taking on a shuffled scenario deck based on one of the books in the series. Using a combination of cards, dice, and teamwork, players attack foes, investigate cases, take advantages, and overcome obstacles to make sure they have the best possible odds for a win in the final showdown at the end of the book! Like any good cooperative game, it's hard to win (no fun if there's no challenge!), but always rewarding to play, and scales smoothly from one to five players.

Play Modes


  1. Solitaire — Play three player-decks by yourself. Follows the special 1-Player Rules from the tabletop game.
  2. Hotseat (Pass-and-Play) — 2-5 players take turns playing on the same device.

  4. Direct Connect Multiplayer — 2-5 players play over a direct connection to a host machine, using the host's IP address and port.

FAQ

When will the game be available?

We are aiming for a Steam release in Q4 2017. The mobile releases will follow at a later date.

When is the beta starting?

Soon. We are aiming for the Steam beta sometime before mid-October.

Can I be in the beta!?!

We want to give the Kickstarter backers first crack at the beta. We'll be playing things by ear, after that.

I was a Kickstarter backer for the tabletop game. Will there be more goodies for me?

Yes, absolutely! As promised by Evil Hat, any backer who buys the app will get free access to all of the expansion packs and variant cards that were directly unlocked by the Kickstarter stretch goals. As soon as Hidden Achievement's account system is live, Evil Hat will send you an unlock code, so you can enable the expansions.

What platforms will be supported?

  • Windows and Mac on Steam.
  • iOS on the Apple App Store.
  • Android on Google Play and Amazon.

Will the game be localized to any other languages?

We are currently weighing our options. If we integrate additional languages, we will be giving highest priority to languages in which the Dresden novels have already been printed. (Consequently, German is very high on our wish-list.)

I have an idea for a feature!

We have a board for that in our forums. Feel free to drop by and tell us what you think. We keep a customer wishlist in our issue tracker, so we don't lose track of your suggestions. We can't promise we'll get to every item people want, but we're definitely listening.

I found a bug!

We have a board for that in our forums. Bugs are very high priority, so we'd love to hear about whatever you've found!
