About this project

lil' Sherman

lil' Sherman is a mobile game being developed for Android and iOS. It blends a fun visual style, strategic gameplay and an engaging storyline. It is a familiar tale of an undersized steel hero that proves with hard work and determination anyone can shine, regardless of size.

In the game, one plays as a WWII tank that must protect its Command Center and the incoming convoy of supplies.  What makes lil’ Sherman stand out among other mobile games is that it incorporates a tower defense style but is also a third person shooter.  This game is being developed with a cartoon feel which makes it enjoyable for all ages and has a massive weapon and vehicle upgrade system for the diehard gamers.  We are developing lil’ Sherman with the Unity 3D game engine, this allows us to push the boundaries of what’s possible for a mobile game and also gives it a richer environment compared to flat 2D "side scroller" games typical of mobile devices.

Who are we?

We are Floppy Entertainment, the first independent game company of its kind to be located in Jacksonville Florida.  Our team consists of 7 extremely creative and talented individuals whose singular passion is to create phenomenal games with mass consumer appeal.

  • Michael La Manna – audio designer
  • Thomas Schafer – lead artist
  • Daniel Kinjerski - programmer
  • Allen Wengert – programmer
  • Dani Demarest – concept/texture artist
  • Lucas Montana – concept/texture artist
  • Brian Marshburn – programmer

Why should I fund?

Although we are deep into development of lil’ Sherman and plan to successfully complete it, we need your help.  lil’ Sherman is an ambitious project - and much more engrossing than your typical mobile game.  The funds raised will go towards the necessary costs to bring lil’ Sherman to life.

  • Unity engine licenses
  • Marketing costs/Legal fees
  • Software licenses
  • Testing devices
  • App Store fees

Should we reach our funding goal, we'll be in a financial position to publish the game independently and free of corporate interference. It will also enable us to run our beta testing with our Kickstarter backers.

  • 100% funded - Android and iOS
  • 150% funded - ad-hoc/peer-to-peer
  • 200% funded - lil’ Sherman reboot for PC on Steam

In addition, our number one contributor will receive the original resin model of lil' Sherman. Hand painted and signed by the games creator, Thomas Schafer.
