Mooresville, NC, July 30, 2015 – Elegant Systems announced today that it is raising funds to complete the development of their action/adventure game Tree Mongers with a rewards crowdfunding campaign on KickStarter. Their goal is to raise $30,000 towards development, distribution and marketing of the game, which was invented by a 4 year old.
Tree Mongers is a story-based action game which takes place on a colonial planet settled by farmers. Native to the planet are “magical” golden trees that project an energy field which protects the plants and animals around them.
When the planet is invaded by evil robots, the Tree Mongers, 7 year old orphan Kenny suddenly finds himself the hero who defends the planet. The Tree Mongers are trying to steal the “magical” golden trees for their energy. Kenny discovers a protective suit and a powered hammer that he can throw at the Tree Mongers, knocking them out.
Glenn Babcock of Elegant Systems, who is leading the development effort, says “Tree Mongers was invented by a kid, for kids. The game is simple and engaging. In early (alpha) testing the kids loved it! Plus, we’re developing this game with outstanding graphics, sound effects and music to give it a level of quality not often seen in children’s games.”
The game focuses on the Kenny using his hammer against the Tree Mongers, with short, simple quests that build the story. Kenny will travel to other towns and discover more about the Tree Mongers, while the Tree Mongers respond to Kenny’s efforts with more and stronger robots.
Tree Mongers is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2015 on iPad, Android, Mac and PC platforms.
