Zelgor

Building an Intergalactic Entertainment Empire

Introduction

Backed by famous venture capitalist Tim Draper, napster founder, Shawn Fanning, and co-creator of Guitar Hero, Kai Huang, Zelgor is an interactive entertainment company aiming to take over the universe with a new species of rambunctious alien characters called The Noobs.

Noobs are a unique and original IP, introduced to the world through mobile games, multimedia content, and strategic partnerships.

Market Opportunity

Market

In 2018, video games eclipsed TV and streaming to become the most profitable sector of digital entertainment. Mobile games, in particular, are the most prominent and fastest-growing sector of the over $159B Video Games Industry, due to many high-profile success stories. Games like Candy Crush Saga, Clash of Clans, and Pokémon Go, have individually generated over a billion dollars in lifetime revenue. At its peak, Pokémon Go brought in as much as $2.5 million in a single day. Each of the companies behind these games reached multi-billion dollar valuations within two years of launching only a single game.

“The global games industry [is] projected to be worth a quarter of a trillion dollars by 2023.”

Noobs in Space

Noobs in Space

Our first game, Noobs in Space, is the world’s introduction to the Noobs IP. Led by their outlandish leader, Major Noob, the Noobs are perpetually flying around the universe, exploring new planets, and dodging wacky obstacles along the way. Players collect and purchase new Noobs, UFOs, outfits, and additional digital goods as they explore the Universe.

Coming Soon to iOS App Store & Google Play Store

Noobtubes

A natural sequel to Noobs in Space, NoobTubes is the story of the Noobs discovering Earth. The game connects to the real world and enables players to battle over territories like AT&T Stadium, the Eiffel Tower, and even your backyard. The battles are highly immersive and spectator friendly, giving them a more competitive, Esport-like potential.

Business Model

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. Zelgor games are free to download, which makes it easy for anyone to try them out and share the fun with their friends. Within each game, players can spend money on virtual items like new Noobs, UFOs, costumes, and other fun virtual goods.

Additionally, we plan to generate revenue by integrating sponsored content and non-intrusive in-game ads and building strategic franchise partnerships to create Noob branded merchandise. As the Noobs IP continues to grow in popularity, we’ll expand our games to additional gaming consoles (PC, Xbox, Playstation) and expand our content into other multimedia platforms, including TV and movies.
