About

The Story

The Hangry Beasts are coming to invade earth!  Stranded for hundreds of years on a meteor, the Hangry Beasts were forced to survive on a diet of rocks, dust and sand, but then... the meteor flew by earth and they saw, smelled, and finally tasted all the great food that the humanity has created.   

The Hangry Beasts then decided that earth must be theirs -by any means possible.  The invasion has begun at a county fair near you.

Defend the earth by feeding the Hangry Beasts as much junk food as possible, before they eat you...

The Game

Hangry Beasts is a 2-4 player food fight free-for-all. Each player must fling an endless supply of pizza, burgers, fries, cotton candy, and an occasional taste cat into the Beast in order for the player to keep from being devoured. Win by having the highest score!

Meet the Beasts!

Be the Beast!

Wear one of 3 Hangry Beasts AR activated t-shirts and become the Beast! Dodge left and right in order to fend off yucky foods to save your appetite for the main course-- Your Friends! But be warned... If you do fill up too quickly-- POP! Each game last 60 seconds. Take turns “Being the Beast” and battle for the high score among your friends and family.

OUR STORY:

The idea for Hangy Beasts began when the WarePlai team wanted to create a game that was fun, yet simple and addressed a need to make family game nights more active.

We noticed kids, and let’s be honest, everyone, loves to be on their mobile device playing games. Two problems we found were that people are always hunched over their screens; usually just sitting down and by themselves.

We want to make a game that gets kids, parents, and friends together and up of the their gluteus maximus to move! And no one wants to eat alone.

The team started thinking about games we use to play that got us to move. We all remembered the arcade and shooting hoops side-by-side with our friends and fun it was to race against a clock; and just like that the idea of Hangry Beasts starting growing.

With a sprinkle of rough character sketches, a little technical testing, and long nights designing a unique experience we knew we had something that resonated with our inner kid.

TECHNOLOGY:

Augmented Reality seems to be the "magic" of the modern day. We can take our smartphone or tablet, point the camera at a piece of paper, at an image on a t-shirt, or at the center of a room and see a digital image that didn't exist before.

For us, AR is not just a gimmick, it's a great new way of telling stories and playing games that will bring people physically together.

TEST MARKETING:

We've also test marketed Hangry Beasts at the Orange County Children's Book Festival!  The Festival features over 135 exhibitors, featuring booksellers, education providers, literacy organizations, and more than 33,000 people attend every year.

Hangry Beasts was a huge hit with children of all ages, and we had long lines of people waiting to try our pre-alpha demo.
