About this project

Please help us bring Cat Zombies to the world! We have partnered with the incredible Powerhouse Animation Studios to develop the game. We are creating Cat Zombies to be fun and engaging for all ages…and breeds! 

Summary of the Game 

Warning! There is a zombie animal outbreak, and it’s up to you and your cat to defend the city!  You will have One Night and Nine Lives...
Cat Zombies is being designed as a fast action tablet game for humans and their cats. The gameplay action will be similar to that of Fruit Ninja.    Multiple levels and the option to share your score on Facebook. 
Cat Zombies will feature 3 modes of game play - Human | Cat | Human/Cat Team

Why Kickstarter? 

We love cats and have had the idea of making a tablet game as a passion project for a while, but working on other projects to pay the bills really eats into our ability to develop Cat Zombies on a timely basis. So instead of seeking out investors (who have ideas of their own), we thought what better way to create a game that fans will love than by allowing them to influence the creation of the game by having the opportunity to pick the zombie animals they defeat, or even have their cat be one of the heroes. Plus how else could our fans get access to all the other cool swag? 

Use of Proceeds 

We will use the funds raised to help us pay for the development, testing and deployment of the game. Every dollar donated to the project will go directly towards making Cat Zombies bigger and better. That means more levels and more zombie animals to defeat! 

A portion of our proceeds will go to the Friends For Life, No Kill Animal Adoption and Rescue Shelter in Houston.

Beta: Anyone who backs the $10 pledge and above will get to beta test an early version of the game, before receiving the final version. 

Who Are We? 

We have assembled a great team for this project. Our resident creative genius Eric Dorris is the driving force behind Cat Zombies. Eric is a cat enthusiast, and is the founder of Catvideos.com, which streams user uploaded videos of cats and kittens doing what they do best, being cute. And we all know that you cannot argue with cute. For the animation and development of the game we have partnered with Powerhouse Animation Studios, based out of Austin Tx. Powerhouse Animation has produced work for a variety of industries including TV, film, video games and advertising. They have been involved with countless projects which include producing animated versions of comic strips such as Dilbert, and Pooch Café. They have also been involved in projects such as Banner Saga, DC Universe Online, and Imperium: Galactic War. Powerhouse animation is rumored to employ the best graphic designers in the free world.

Risks and challenges

The challenge for us begins with the development of the game. We are attempting to create a game that is enjoyable for humans, and for cats. By creating 3 different gameplay modes (Human, Cat, and Human/Cat Team) we are faced with the challenge of making gameplay for humans engaging and enjoyable. This way, regardless of having a cat or not, it will become one of your favorite games. And if you are a dog owner, you will love the game just as much as our weird cat friends.

We know that Powerhouse Animation is fully capable of addressing and overcoming these challenges. They have consistently proven themselves in the industry time and time again.

We do risk causing humans and cats to become addicted to playing Cat Zombies! Our initial testing of basic gameplay action is proof!
