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.

Hello Netcapitalists! We’re excited to share that we’ve successfully completed the third stability test of Noobs in Space. We conducted the most recent phase of testing last month in India over a ten-day span, generating over 10,000 downloads. The purpose of this most recent test was to evaluate the game’s stability over a wide variety of devices along with its scalability. Our back-end technology held up incredibly well and we’re quite pleased with the results. You can read more about our success here:

    After the success of our third and final stability test, we turn our focus now towards the soft launch. The soft launch is where we’ll release the latest version of the game in a test market like Canada. The primary goal of this stage is to fine-tune the game mechanics based on user feedback, retention, and spending patterns of our in-game store. 

We’ve collected some incredible feedback and seen some fascinating results thanks to all of those who’ve played via early access.

    From all of us at Zelgor, we offer a huge thank you to all of those who have played Noobs in Space so far! We have some incredibly fun and exciting plans for this game after collecting everyone’s feedback, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you soon.

    Zelgor Inc Successfully Sells Out Raise on Netcapital

    Zelgor is thrilled to say that we successfully sold out our Netcapital Offering. Thank you to the over 1,300 investors who have backed us this round. We want you to know that we have been hard at work throughout the offering (and since the close of course!) getting the Noobiverse up and running so that soon all of you may be able to join us there.

    The sold-out offering headlines an eventful summer for us at Zelgor, which included launching an initial stability test of our first game, Noobs in Space. We’ve also conducted a second stability test since the offering’s close, driving tens of thousands to Google Play’s Early Access Store.

    Zelgor’s focus this summer has been on building our tools and technology infrastructure to scale up with more users while collecting and incorporating feedback from Early Access testers. Soon we plan to launch our third and final stability test, our largest yet!

    We’ve also been hard at work iterating on the next version of Noobs in Space with the goal of creating content that is more fun, engaging, and motivating to explore and making it accessible for as many Noobs as possible.

    We look forward to sharing some of the great new features and content we’ve created as well as the results of our third stability test with all of you soon. Stay tuned!

    Zelgor launches first mobile game stability...

    Zelgor launches first mobile game stability test in India and reaches thousands of downloads in first 48 hours.

    Zelgor is thrilled to announce the successful Stability Test Launch of our first mobile game, Noobs in Space, in India, reaching thousands of people in the first week! The game launched in the Google Play Early Access Store in India at the beginning of June, and we’re thrilled at the response we’ve seen so far. We hit our first weekly download milestone in under 48 hours, which we believe speaks to how well the Noobs resonate with new audiences. News of our milestone achievement even made its way into Yahoo Finance.

    Through this launch, we aim to test how the game functions on various devices, identify bugs, and test feature functionality and likability. Launching our first Stability Test is a key step towards Zelgor’s official launch of Noobs in Space. The game is currently available for download on Google Play’s Early Access Store in India and we will continue to conduct a series of Stability Tests throughout July.

    Hi Netcapital Investors! With 2020 being such...

    Hi Netcapital Investors!

    With 2020 being such a chaotic year, it’s easy to forget about what looms on the horizon: the pending Noobs invasion! If you’ve missed out on some of our exciting developments over the summer, here’s a recap:

    We hired former Warner Brothers developer and OtherSide Entertainment lead engineer, Will Teixeira, to be our Mad Scientist and Lead Engineer! Will is a rockstar who went from working on Dungeons & Dragons Online to leading the launch of multiple titles at OtherSide Entertainment for Xbox One, PS4, Mobile VR, and Oculus.

    We also recruited Andres Gonzalez, to be our Lead Designer. Most notably, Andres was the Lead Combat Designer for Bioshock Infinite, which won over 75 awards, is rated a 10/10 on Steam, and sold 11 million copies in the first two years of release.

    Both are world-class and it is a dream come true to have them on our team. Each had worked with our Chief Product Officer, Phil Fogerite, at Warner Brothers and Ghost Story Games prior to working with us, and felt inspired to join the Noobs before they take over the Universe.

    The impact that these two have had so far has been enormous. As a result, we just updated our page on Netcapital to show off the progress we’ve made since they joined. Check out the updated video and amazing art we’ve added!

    We have even more exciting news in the coming days that we’re looking forward to sharing with you as both games move closer to launch.
