PARIS--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - Le Web '12 -- Checked the back of your refrigerator lately? You might want to, because there's a chance it's been housing ZeptoLab's Pudding Monsters! But, what's a Pudding Monster? They are monsters made of pudding, of course! They're also the stars of Pudding Monsters, the long-anticipated new game from ZeptoLab, makers of the highly successful Cut the Rope. With deliciously addicting characters and innovative stick-'em-together gameplay, the game is sure to be a pick-up-and-play hit with mobile gamers of all ages. Pudding Monsters will launch on iOS and Android on December 20, just in time for the holidays. For a sneak preview, a video trailer of the game can be viewed here.
In the new game, players will take the Pudding Monsters on an adventure -- off the table, out of the house and into the city -- swiping to stick the Monsters together as they become the Ultimate Mega Monster to save their friend from being kidnapped by the cold-hearted fridge owner. Different Monster species have different powers (like Slime Monster, who leaves a trail of green goo), creating unique twists and turns in gameplay as the adventure unfolds.
Pudding Monsters is the first entirely new game franchise by ZeptoLab since the smash hits Cut the Rope and Cut the Rope: Experiments, which launched in October 2010 and August 2011, respectively. Cut the Rope has been downloaded more than 250 million times and developed legions of loyal Om Nom fans across the globe. The game has also launched a hit licensing and merchandising line via partnerships with some of the largest brands in the world, including Sony Pictures Television, Burger King and Hasbro. A weekly, animated series, "Om Nom Stories," also launched this fall.
"We love experimenting with different themes and gameplay mechanics -- and Pudding Monsters is exactly the result of that," said ZeptoLab co-founder Semyon Voinov. "Our fans, new and old, will recognize in this game the same quality of graphics, game design and user experience that led to the success of Cut the Rope."
"Pudding Monsters is a logical next step in our strategy. Our focus is just as much on innovating and creating new IP as it is to strengthen our existing brands," said ZeptoLab CEO, Misha Lyalin. "Now, we're ready to bring fans a great new game that is suited for all ages and provides new opportunities for further expansion. We're building a portfolio of exceptional pick-up-and-play games, and Pudding Monsters helps to showcase our ambitions as a studio."
