The Spaghetti & Meatballs Game, is pure fun for you to challenge and play with your friends on Facebook!

Spaghetti and Meatballs Fans! We need your support!

Lov3 Enterrtainment is an independent game development studio and media company, located in San Francisco, California. Our goal is to make “simple, smart, fun” games that anyone can enjoy, we’re striving to reshape the way social games are played by making them truly social. Our games are centered on the player’s experience with their friends, and other players! 

The Spaghetti and Meatballs Game is our first attempt to do just that. It is pure competitive fun for you to challenge and play with your friends on Facebook. 

 
We are working with our partners at Lucky Shot Media who will be responsible to get the community forums up and running.
We have already created a working beta of Spaghetti & Meatballs, which has all of the gameplay and mechanics plugged in. For those of you not working in the industry, a beta is similar to a rough version of a finished product! It is running in sandbox mode right now on Facebook already. We've done this on our own dime and our early testers have been loving the game! But now it is time for us to build out additional features, add more assets/power-ups (based on your feedback), add more music and SFX, build out the mechanics for achievements, leader-boards  and other great things, and this is where you come in! Your money will go towards:

• Getting the servers ready to support the bandwidth
• Tune the game so that it runs as fast as possible and creates the best flow for you and your friends
• Additional Assets; Personalization, Power-ups, and Features
• High End Audio Creation
• Lots more character animations and interactions.
• Community Forum, Leaderboards, contests, true Matchmaking, Pairing and Ranking.
• In Game Chat.
• Points and achievements ticker, displays your scores, the ones of your friends and other players live.

Read on for more details about the game, and thank you for your time and interest. Get ready for an experience of Epic Marinara Proportions!!!

Help the Spaghetti & Meatballs Game become the greatest multiplayer-connection-strategy game, the world has ever known!


Have you ever wondered if each Meatball dreams of being the only one on the plate for you to eat? Well, wonder no more Meatballs do indeed battle, armed with spaghetti, to be the last Meatball standing!
Now you and up to 7 of your friends, or unsuspecting strangers, can make Meatballs’ dreams a reality!!

In the Spaghetti & Meatballs Game, the more victorious you are the more you’ll level up, and the more “Sauce” you’ll earn. Use Sauce to purchase outfits and accessories to dress up your meatball. Also earn or purchase “Parmesan Cheese”, which can be traded for power ups, and unlock rare items.


Gameplay

Each game is designed to be unique and last between 2 to 10 min.
The Spaghetti & Meatballs Game combines skill, strategy (like checkers), and luck, since every game is unique, the spaghetti tiles you receive are completely random. It is easy to pick but as the game progresses, the players get more sophisticated and the power ups make it more challenging.
After launch, we plan to continue expanding the Spaghetti & Meatballs Game with additional backgrounds, animations, powerups, and additional features!

Below are just a few screenshots from our current Beta build which should give you a great idea of our art direction, and how far along the Spaghetti & Meatballs Game is!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The main risks that could interfere with the projects launch are mainly tied to servers and bandwidth. Once we Beta test with a large number of players playing simultaneously then we'll know how to circumvent any bandwidth issues.Other than that it's a pretty low risk project, since the members of the team all have extensive experience with launching different apps/sites.
