Socialmon



Cute monsters and a really integrated social mechanic will be the basis of Takeout Arcade's next game: Socialmon. A team is almost done with the prototype. And are polishing up UI and other things. We believe we have something innovative to bring to both the social gaming table as well as the monster pet table. It's not another farmville.

Socialmon will be Takeout Arcade's 3rd offering after launching Dragon Siege & Medieval Carnival earlier this month.

Is this sort of a poke-social like title?

How much difference does UI Make.

UI effects market appeal & gameplay, here are a couple of our innitial ideas, guess which one we went with.

Option A


or

Option B

We really want to keep the main gameplay mechanic under wraps for now, but there will be evolutions, and later you'll be able to battle & collect your socialmon. =0)

I appreciate the questions=) You will need internet to connect and compete with friends. But there will also be single player game play. I'm not a fan of always connected games, so i'll do what I can to ensure some offline gameplay.

That's awesome! To be honest, I feel that only only gaming takes away a but from the hardcore gamer. For example a time to go out and you just so happened to play the game offline . I really appreciate that I love taking games on the road.
