About this project
PLEASE WATCH VIDEO BEFORE YOU READ THIS! MAKE FULL SCREEN SO YOU CAN APPRECIATE THE AWESOME GRAPHICS FROM THE GAME!
We are asking for $3500.00 to ensure that this project gets funded, but could really do some amazing things with a budget of $6000.00 to work with. Please help us to overfund this project to ensure that all of the great features that we want to include can be included in the first version of this game! Thank you!
Check out the AMAZING rewards we have to offer!
Thumbs Media is a mobile application studio based in Washington DC. We, Thomas and Marcus, are the founders of Thumbs Media. Both of us have an extensive background in technology. Our expertise is mainly in digital marketing. Marcus has been in the industry for over 10 years in web development and web marketing. He has owned and operated dozens of successful online businesses. Thomas is the owner of a digital marketing firm, also based in Washington DC, and attended Full Sail University for their Internet Marketing Bachelors Degree program. This is where we feel we have a strong competitive advantage over other application developers. We approach our projects from a marketing prospective first.
When we put together this Kickstarter campaign up the first thing that we knew we had to do was to come up with some awesome rewards and luckily our project lends itself well to some very interesting and valuable opportunities to give away some great stuff to our backers.
We hope that you can join us in our excitement and become a Kickstarter backer, assisting us to bring our ideas into reality and getting them into the hands of hundreds of thousands, or even millions of people.
Stemming from a conversation over lunch, Hungry Chameleons is a combination of our love for technology along with the our backgrounds and knowledge of reptiles and amphibians. Both of us have had chameleons as pets in the past. These guys are extremely cool.
Their colors are vibrant and they change color and are very timid in nature most of the time. The coolest part about them though is the way that they eat. It was always our intention from the beginning to be sure we capture how vibrant and colorful these creatures are and make the game as realistic as possible. We think we've done this with brilliant illustration and design, detailed scenery and fun sound effects.
Hungry Chameleons is a fun and addictive mobile game that is launching for iOS and Android with your help! The story starts out where Cham the hungry chameleon has just hatched and of course...he is hungry. He steps out onto his branch and waits for his lunch. If any bugs come near him, Cham will snap out his tongue and chomp them down.
Over time more and more bugs of all types come by Cham and he has to eat them as fast as possible before they get away. As you complete the levels Cham starts to develop into an adult and start to get his coloration. This is one of the coolest parts; you never really know what your current chameleon will look like until you reach the final level where is has reached full coloration.
NOTE: One thing we didn't mention in the video was that we will be launching the game with multiple chameleons to choose from and also additional scenes than just the one shown in the video. We will continue to put out new characters, levels and many more interesting and unique features in future updates of the game.
We've been working on this project for about 6 months now and are very close to completion of the project with all of the design and user interface complete, but unfortunately the development of the game took longer than expected and we need some help to keep things moving.
Right now we are 60% through this project overall. We have about 75% of the user interface programmed in, the in-app store is complete and we have half of the levels already programmed.
We still need to finish the development of the remaining levels and then integrate new scenes and characters into the game to add to the enjoyment of the game. We also need to complete the design of the website and social media which will be finished within 2 weeks of posting this project.

It's very simple and we've got a great plan. The money will be used to finish the project, protect the project (legally) and make sure the project is successful.
We are 60% and the 40% left is the remaining development of the project, turning all of our designs into functional elements within the game. After development is complete we need to make sure that it's a success. We need to make sure we have all of our press releases written, that our social media and website is up and running and also take care of all of the legal copyright and patent work.
We hope that we do overfund. $3500.00 is the minimum that we need to finish the project but we'd love to be able to launch the game with additional characters and features that might not make it to the first version if we aren't overfunded.
We are planning to launch the game on the iPad too. It's going to look absolutely amazing on the bigger iPad screen. With the new iPad 3 with retina display the game needs to be entirely redesigned in higher resolution. The additional funds will allow us to give our designers the resources they need to do this.
Even if you can't help to fund our project, we will have 1 more favor to ask. Please share this page on Facebook and Twitter and your other social media channels. Ask your friends on Facebook to share it with their friends. Put it out to your newsletter, whatever you can do. We need to make sure this project gets in front of as many people as possible and we know we can't do this without your help.
The reason we didn't add this to our rewards was because the game will be FREE for download so it wouldn't be much of a reward. We do have the beta testing reward at our $50 contribution mark where people can get early access to the beta versions of the game before its release!
