If anyone's interested in non-computerized decks, I went and extracted the vector art from the gnostica stickers pdf that was available (needing to redraw 9 and 21). It looks a lot better than the images from the web page though it's too late for the deck I made. Although I guess I still have the red cards though.
Oh, BGG went and put up the first version of the stickers. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/fileinfo.php?fileid=20931
They should update to v2-0 with vector art soon enough I think. 2-0 also has numbered cards too, so you know if a sun beats a moon at the start.

Hi, Don! If you are unable to do the coding yourself, the way to make a
request is via the SDG Wishlist found at
http://wiki.superdupergames.org/wishlist. As I am the sole
proprietor/admin and have a very busy RL, games are selected in a
somewhat arbitrary manner whenever I have blocks of time. You are
always welcome to email me directly or post suggestions on the forums as

wishlist as well or it'll get lost. (BTW, Gnostica is currently on the
The reason I personally have not tackled it is because Gnostica is very
complex. Having not played it myself makes it even more so. You have a
non-traditional board, variable player powers that include interrupts,
and many other issues. I personally have simply chosen to focus my time
on other games that more easily fit into the SDG paradigm.
That said, I fully support 3rd-party coders. Full details on how to
proceed can be found on the wiki's API page
(http://wiki.superdupergames.org/api). Perl is the needed language.
As for Gnostica in particular, last I heard (back in April), Alex
Scouras (SDG: Lexicon) was attempting this project. I do not know if
he's a member of the Looney bin, but if he is, he would be the one to
hit-up for information.
