Zelgor is building an entire galaxy of interconnected mobile games, catering to the largest category of gamer: the Noob! For those of you unfamiliar with the word, a Noob is a player or a person who is new to a game and doesn’t really know what they’re doing. Anyone who has played an online game has probably been called a noob at least once, and that’s ok. If you’re a Noob, Zelgor is building an entire Universe for you!
In the United States, people now spend more time on their phones than they do watching television. According to App Annie, a major mobile analytics provider, people spend almost four hours a day on their mobile devices. And they spend while they’re there. Worldwide, people spent $120 billion in the app store last year, and 72% of that was spent on games. That’s why App Annie expects the mobile game industry to generate $100 billion in revenue this year, an increase of 16% from 2019’s $86 billion figure.
There have been several high-profile success stories in the mobile game space, and investors are taking notice. Niantic’s Pokémon GO, for example, has generated more than $2 billion in sales, allowing the company to achieve a $4 billion valuation. Meanwhile, Supercell was able to ride the almost overnight success of Clash of Clans to a $10.2 billion valuation. According to TechCrunch, $9.6 billion was invested in the game space over the last 18 months, which was more than the previous 8 years combined.
The success of the industry is driven by games that are easy to pick up and play right away. The accessibility of smartphones, combined with the simple tap and swipe mechanics of mobile games, make this a perfect game platform for Noobs!
Our goal is to build games with a strong life-time value, while at the same time generating revenue in an effective but non-intrusive manner. That’s why we are using the freemium business model: building games that are free to play, while monetizing through sales of virtual items and merchandising, as well as advertising.
Virtual Items for Sale:
- Avatar customization with costumes and accessories
- Social features, such as dances and emotes
- Noob Squad cosmetics
Merchandise for Sale:
- Clothing and accessories: shirts, hats, bandanas, and more
- Plush toys and action figures
- Stickers and pins
Royalties from Content Expansion:
- Animated shorts and series
Platform Expansion and Licensing
- Leveraging the Zelgor platform to build new games and planets
- Licensing the Zelgor platform to other game companies and app developers
We are not just developing games, but are building a galaxy of stories and a universe of interconnected content. By leveraging cutting-edge technology, players will be able to transfer items across our entire Galaxy of Games.
Noobs in Space
Wait, weren’t you guys originally building a game called NoobTubez? You’re absolutely right! NoobTubez is the game that inspired it all and is currently in development. The progress we’ve made since our first Netcapital offering has enabled us to expand our Noob universe, and our newest game, Noobs in Space, is almost ready for launch.
Noobs in Space is the world’s introduction to a race of fun-loving, ambitious, and rambunctious aliens, called Noobs. Led by their genius leader, Major Noob, the Noobs are perpetually flying around exploring the universe, looking for new places to live. Every time the Noobs manage to find a new home, for one reason or another, they always end up having to abruptly leave.
As a Noob in Space, Major Noob has tasked you with exploring new planets. Players fly around the universe as Noobs, discovering new planets and avoiding any obstacle that gets in their way. Players can acquire new Noobs, spaceships, and outfits while they tour the galaxy.
Our original game, NoobTubez is the story of the Noobs arriving on Earth to take over the world with their super-sophisticated alien technology, the NoobTube.
Combining the best elements of Pokémon GO and Clash Royale, NoobTubez is a paintball-like battle game where players command their squad of Noobs as they fight to control territories in the real world.
Noobs launch fruit at each other, using their NoobTube, in an effort to knock out competing Noob Squads and conquer key strategic locations, such as Fenway Park and the White House. Players can team up as Noobs, or battle as rivals (still Noobs), winning real prizes and unlocking new characters along the way.
NoobTubez is our first game that leverages the Zelgor platform; our location-based alternate reality platform that enables us to build immersive game experiences on top of the real world map.
In order to bring Noobs in Space to life, Zelgor is partnering with Disruptor Beam, which is best known for its work with major media franchises such as Game of Thrones and Star Trek. The Noobs will utilize the company’s Disruptor Engine, a platform consisting of UI tools, services, and best practices that will enable the Noobs to to speed up production in a quality fashion that scales efficiently.

Success So Far
Our team has made significant strides in bringing the world of Noob Tubez to life. We started by building a mobile platform for location-based and alternate reality game experiences, then integrated several proof-of-concept minigames into the platform. This experience ultimately led us to the Noob Tubez concept and the creation of the Noobs! We’ve done focus-testing on the game concept and artwork, and we’ve put together marketing quality characters and animations. We have two games currently in development, NoobTubez and Noobs in Space.
