Introduction

Zelgor Inc. builds alternate reality mobile games that integrate location and the real-world map. Our first mobile game, Noob Tubez, tells the story of big headed, mischievous aliens, called Noobs, that have come to Earth in search of a new home planet. Zelgor shares the story of the Noobs through light-hearted, competitive, and engaging mobile games. At Zelgor Inc, we plan to maximize the long-term value of our games by prioritizing quality, engagement, and retention.

The Market

The mobile game space is huge, lucrative, and yet still in its infancy. Companies such as Supercell and Niantic were each able to ride the overnight success of a single game to multi-billion dollar valuations! Since the beginning of the now $36.9B+ industry, mobile game developers have focused on convenient, short gameplay sessions with tap and swipe game mechanics. While these strategies do leverage the strengths of the phone platform, the success of Pokemon Go demonstrated the additional potential of games that use location and alternate reality. As game enthusiasts, our team recognized that potential years before Pokemon Go’s release and as a result, we built a location-based alternate reality platform. We did not anticipate, however, the Noobs seizing control of our platform to use for their planetary conquest...

A Mini Game we built on the Zelgor Platform

Our First Game: Noob Tubez

The Noobs are a race of big headed, mischievous aliens that have come to Earth in search of a new home planet. Noob Tubez, our first mobile game, is a fruit flinging, territory-based, mobile strategy game played on the real-world map. Combining the best elements of Pokemon Go and Clash Royale, users assemble their squad of Noobs and battle for the control of territories using a piece of sophisticated alien technology called the Noob Tube. The Noobs use this bizarre contraption to launch fruit at each other in epic dodgeball-style food fights. Players can compete against each other or team up to conquer key strategic locations such as Fenway Park and the White House, winning real prizes and unlocking new characters along the way.

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. We’ve done focus-testing on the game concept and artwork, and we’ve put together marketing quality characters and animations.
