According to Never Be Bored, game designer AMG Services sought a publishing partner for the game in order to widen distribution and mitigate costs involved in manufacturing the physical card decks. Before partnering with Never Be Bored, AMG Services covered all expenses related to game development and game art, but the company decided to find an outside partner to help with the actual publication and distribution of the game.
