As we enter our final countdown, we decided to give an iOS copy of Monster Stacker to all backers of Smiley Pack or above who ask for one! 

All copies of the game offered to backers that request Mac OSX and Windows downloads will be DRM free and not restricted by country.

Important to note that copies available to backers that request iOS download are limited to the United States Apple App Store market. The game will still be available for purchase on all other Apple App Store markets, but we can not provide redeemable codes that work outside United States. Sorry for the inconvenience.

But it doesn't have to stop there! We have stretch goals with extra content like more monsters and additional music we can unlock!

 Monster Stacker is a physics-based game where you play the part of a monster supplier who is delivering shipments of monsters to their clients.

Who would want shipments of monsters, you ask? Why, dungeon bosses of course! Meet your clients:

 Each of your clients have unique lairs with different challenges and different monster needs. Drop in the monsters and stack em up high to make your client happy and earn lots of gold!

 With over 50 levels of gameplay, Monster Stacker will keep you stacking monsters for a long time to come!

Monster Stacker is being powered by Cocos2d-x and Spine. It will be available firstly on Mac OSX, and iOS. Android and Windows will be available shortly after.

Monster Stacker is nearly complete, but we want to hire a professional audio designer to do the music and sound effects. We have some great stretch goals which include extra monsters, clients, and even more music tracks for the game!

 For a mere $2, you get our gratitude, a shout-out in the game credits, and you will make this little skeleton's day.

All copies of the game offered to backers with the "Smiley Pack" will be downloadable for Mac OSX and Windows.

Important to note that copies available to backers for iOS download are limited because App Store restrictions. The game will still be available for purchase on the iOS App Store when launched.

Although Monster Stacker is nearly complete, we would love to add even more content and options! Below are the first of (hopefully many) stretch goals!

 YOU can take part in choosing which monsters we'll make next! Voting will open up to Kickstarter Backers once this stretch goal is reached!

 ...Keep checking here for more exciting expansions to come!

Fat Loot Games was founded by three game industry veterans who (along with our talented intern) love making and playing games.

We have over 25 years of professional experience combined, and we hope Monster Stacker is just the first of many games that we make together!

Thank you for considering our project!

Risks and challenges

Because our team is experienced in making games and Monster Stacker is nearly complete, the risks are pretty minimal. We already have a talented and experienced audio designer lined up, we just need to pay him what he is worth.

This would be a good problem to have, but if we reach all of our stretch goals it will effectively double the content of the game. Fortunately that wouldn't push back the actual release date because the new content will roll out as updates in 2014.
