Why we need your support

Large Animal Games is a independent game development studio in New York City. Contrary to our name, we are a small company, and we typically work with publishing partners to fund our games - but ultimately, we want to be able to fund and publish our own. Nomsters is an attempt to do just that. It's a action-arcade game for iOS and Android devices.

We've managed to get Nomsters to a solid alpha (that's like a rough draft for those of you who don't work in the software industry) on our own dime and early testers have been giving us positive feedback, but we need your help to add the spit and polish that will make the game really stand out. Your money will go towards:

  • More levels
  • Retina-display support
  • Better music and sound effects
  • Lots more character animations
  • Android porting costs (we'll target the most popular devices first, such as Kindle Fire)

Read on for more details about the game. Thank you from Team Nomsters!

-Bob, Mike, Rob, Brad and Wade


Help the Nomsters save their world!

The survival of the Nomsters home planet is at stake! The evil Fruit Fly army from a neighboring galaxy has begun stealing the Nomsters' very lifeblood - their precious supply of fresh fruit.

A rag-tag team of Nomsters has banded together to challenge the Flies, but they are out-numbered and, frankly, out-witted. These heroic underdogs need your help to collect all of the fruit before it’s stolen by the Fruit Flies. 

Nomsters features hours of both single player and turn-based multiplayer gameplay for iOS and Android. It’s a fast-paced arcade puzzler and an astroNOMical amount of fun.

Gameplay

We played with a similar pinball-meets-pool concept in Bumper Stars, one of our Facebook games, but Nomsters pushes everything much further. You'll see all-new mechanics like moving obstacles and challenging new bumper types - even Fruit Flies who sneak into the level mid-way to steal fruit! After launch, we plan to continue expanding the Nomsters world with new powerups, more Nomsters, and additional level packs featuring different types of never-before-seen interactive game objects.

Multiplayer

We're super-excited about our Nomsters Challenge system. Take on any of your Facebook friends in a single-level showdown: earn the most points and you'll get Avocados to spend on power-ups. Dare your friends to beat your unbelievable scores, then bask in the glow of victory when they inevitably fall short.
