About

Understanding how kids look at games requires a different type of understanding; the way they view games is different. For an adult, a piece of plastic can just be a piece of plastic with nothing interesting about it; but, for kids, it can be a unique magic item with an exciting fantasy behind it. While you are shopping, they are trying to survive in the lava field. Imagination. Fantasy. That's the key.    

How can we create the best game for kids if we cannot fully understand that magical world they live in? That's right, we cannot—can we?   

The right answer is simpler than it sounds: we can ask them. We can pay attention to them, talking with them until we start to understand at least a bit, learning step-by-step in the development process by confirming what they like and what they expect from an ideal toy/game. And that's exactly what we did. That's why our game was created by kids for kids.

When you've been working with kids for hours and hours on a project like this, you realize one more thing: kids are not "dumb." They live in a fairytale, but they also understand the importance of technology in they own way. They want to be like adults, but in a less boring way.    

They want to take care of someone, but they also want to trade, get rich, be powerful, and win. That's why and how MONSTUZ was born. Okay, let's stop here.

The biggest difference between MONSTUZ and classic games is a relation between hardware and software words. It's not just an app, it's also not just a toy. You have a MONSTUZ ball (the size of the tennis ball) where you can see monsters, what do they do, how they react, fight, eat, sleep, etc., but also control all these actions with a touch or via mobile phone through an augmented reality.    

They can wake you up in the morning by knocking on the ball's window. You can see all of their statistics on your phone, but the MONSTUZ still interact with you in real time through the MONSTUZ ball.

We make charging most impressive and fun way. To charge Monstuz ball, just put in on the top of charging dock. The ball will levitate in mid-air and charge wirelessly. Truly impressive!  

How to make MONSTUZ more interactive? Augmented reality app allows you to see characters in "real life" through your phone right in your living room. iPhone & Android supported.   

You have some MONSTUZ that you train and take care of, but you also have a good social connection with other players' MONSTUZ. What about using those connections to help each other? What if you are not working alone, for yourself, but combine force and knowledge to achieve a common goal?   

If you don't take care of your MONSTUZ, you will lose some of your coins, but if you are responsible, you will earn more and more coins so that you can achieve your goal faster.   

The MONSTUZ were forced to flee from their home planet. Evil aliens attacked, and they escaped to the open universe. After days of flawless flying through the universe, the engines have no more fuel, and they start falling to the planet called Earth. After crashing, humans find them, and now it's up to you to decide if you will help them fight for their planet back. How does it continue? You can find out in the MONSTUZ Comic Book.   

Based on the story, MONSTUZ' time on Earth takes a while, so while they are on the planet new monsters are born. They are expanding like a real population, and that's only a good thing. You can raise them from an egg and train them to build a bigger army so you can get stronger and fight for their planet back more easily. You can also create new and unique characters, buy them clothes, armor, weapons, and much more.   

The best thing is that you are not stuck with the possibilities of the game at the time that you buy it. Updates will bring you more and more features. Thank updates for all the games that have become better after you bought them.

MONSTUZ are like exuberant friends. Their companionship will help your kids with depression and loneliness. Playing MONSTUZ game also:

- Idea Creation (July 2017)     
We created an idea during long summer evening playing with children's card games.  

- Realization the first ready to use prototype (September 2017)  
We would love to produce our prototype. Was different from that what is it now, but it was working.  

- Kickstarter campaign start (April 2018)  
After months of developing and prototyping, we finally designed our final, ready-to-sell model. That's why we decided to bring it to the market.

- Manufacture start (June 2018)  
After successful Kickstarter campaign, we can directly jump into the production.

- Delivery (November 2018)  
Final delivery will be before Christmas, so your kids can find amazing monstuz under the Christmas tree.  

Every product needs to start somewhere. This was our way. From Big Ball with hologram reflection display, through the small 3D printed ball, to final working product.

               

ARE YOU READY TO BE PART OF THE MONSTUZ FAMILY?   


  

Risks and challenges

We proved our concept by prototyping several versions. We already contacted producers who would be able to produce parts that are essential for MONSTUZ.

We are going to compose the product in China and deliver it to the whole world. We even work with experts in the field to make it even more efficient than it is in the stage of prototyping.

As the biggest risk for the backers, we identified the timing itself. Regarding the amount of money we ask, we planned the delivery before Christmas. But in the case of doing the project on our own, we would have to delay our schedule. Thus risking the competition with lower quality of products to take the lead.

Results of our testing and any corrective actions may cause a delay in delivering a product to you on time. Fortunately, we have the resources and expertise to resolve any issues quickly if and when they occur.

We want you to know that we are putting our reputations on the line with friends, family and those closest to us. We would not be running this campaign without being certain we can meet or exceed everyone's expectations. Thank you in advance for your understanding, trust, and support.
