America is more divided than ever. No one seems willing to talk to anyone with a different opinion. However, 5 strangers with varying political views are willing to put their differences aside in the name of friendship.  

Rife with classic era Simpsons humor add a steaming fusion of internet culture, toss in some topical issues with universal themes and top it off with the belief that everyone across the political spectrum is worthy of ridicule and you get Game Night; the comedy that America deserves but also the one we need. 

Game Night is a half-hour animated adult comedy that follows five strangers: LEO, PRUDY, JAMIE, MARIE and LEXI. Together, they navigate the treacherous seas of friendship in a post-civility America where opinions on policy either make you literally Hitler or a degenerate tearing down the fabric of Western Civilization. Along the way our friends deal with a mad kid’s-show-scientist, Mecha Christianity vs Mecha Mecca, toxic masculinity and his girlfriend feminism, otherkin, and, yes-- literal Nazis. 

Each episode our friends gather at a Game Night where these issues will fester. Some episodes will deal with our friends working together to beat a game, some will explore the character's lives deeper as we see how they got to their political beliefs and some will see them go on insane adventures as they discover what it is they truly believe.

The key to a great comedy is great characters and to help us bridge this politcal divide we want to discover why we think the way we think. A big part of this show is exploring these characters and uncovering the comedy and tragedy of their lives that bring them to where they are today. 

Leo 

A paragon of the classic conservative male. Leo left college to pursue a career in construction. His closest friends are fellow construction workers who've sworn off women. 

While Leo hasn't sworn off love, he's uncomfortable with showing his emotions which gets in the way of finding the one. 

Prudy 

A Disney Princess trapped in the modern world, Prudy loves hedgehogs and classical romance. 

While she grew up in a very masculine home with four brothers and a wild older sister, Prudy escaped into the worlds of Anne of Green Gables and Little Women. Now she owns a hedgehog matchmaking service where she matches hedgehogs with owners based on their personalities. 

Jamie 

An ally to all, Jamie strives to make up for his privileged background by being a representative of the underrepresented. 

He's always on top of the most cutting edge technology and the most progressive ideas. Always the giving one, Jamie finds himself as the loving half of a toxic relationship. 

Marie 

A lost soul trying to figure out what she wants in life. One thing for certain is that she wants out of her relationship with Jamie but doesn't have the will to end it. 

She works as a Post-Modern Webcam Girl in which people give her money to watch her do mundane tasks such as filing her nails, reading magazines, and browsing the internet on her phone. 

Lexi 

A 30-something recluse who still lives with her parents. Her retired mother dotes on her all day, while her father wants her out so he can spend his golden years getting freaky with his wife.

 Lexi has never had a relationship with an actual person and instead spends her time on the phone with her Navy Seal-Spanish Prince boyfriend, Roger, a Catfish whose convinced Lexi to give him thousands of dollars. 

As the series continues we explore all of our major characters and watch them all as they grow into more complete people, healing from their past and growing into their futures. 

Nocturnus Studios was created with the idea that anyone should be able to make animation. However, there can be a lot of roadblocks. Unless you can do voice overs, storyboards, character designs, animation, music, sound and editing all by yourself you need help. Which is why we need your help. 

With your pledge we will be able to fund the first episode in the series. If we can raise more than we'll have more episodes up to 12 for the first season.

Risks and challenges

The money we collect from pledges will go to creating the Pilot Episode and all subsequent episodes up to 12. We need $20,000 for each episode after the pilot. So ideally, we would need a total of $240,000. But if we don’t reach this goal, we’ll distribute the amount raised across the fully funded episodes.

If there are any delays to getting your rewards to you we will always notify via e-mail.

My monthly Q&A's will always be released the following day so that all backers know if there are any concerns.
