Remember that uber popular kickstarter from last year featuring a card game version of Russian roulette with kittens? Now, those of us with iPhones, no longer have to rely on a physical deck to play.

The Oatmeal has released an iOS version of Exploding Kittens. Through the app, players will get to experience the same game they’ve come to know physical form, but now with updated graphics and a couple new cards. Two to five people can play across multiple phones, with no mention of a possible online playing mode. Android users can expect a version for them sometime in the near future.

Last year, Exploding Kittens went on to become the most funded Kickstarter campaign ever, raising over $8 million after only seeking to raise $10,000. The game also received the highest amount of backers ever on the site, pulling in over 200,000 people to back the project.

While the mobile version is undoubtedly already fun, developers over at Substantial, the company behind designing the mobile platform, want to say that there’s still a lot of work to be done and that the mobile version is still in it’s early stages. Nevertheless, if you want to play, you can Exploding Kittens on the App Store for $1.99.
