We’ve been posting drawings of our monsters since the beginning of this project. On our Instagram account (@monstermaticapp) we posted about 80 finalized monster drawings, but there is something we never shared before: Process.
Sometimes process is more important than the goal itself, because it defines it! It’s only through sketching, erasing and sketching some more that I start to get a sense of what the final monster is going to look like. So, here it is, my 90 min monster drawing process compressed into a 30 sec video. First one one of many 🙂
Augmented Reality or AR, is a live, direct view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated graphics. We’re happy to add this exciting feature to Monstermatic!!! We’re still adding working on real time interactions and special effect.
Make sure to have a look at our Kickstarter and please show your support by pledging! Have a great weekend 🙂
Los Angeles, California based gaming startup Mico Studio has just recently announced their first title: Monstermatic. They have launched a Kickstarter project to complete the final stages of development. The project will have until October 15th to reach its funding goal of $30,000.

It would mean the world to us if you could share the link above with your friends. Thanks for your support 🙂
This is it! We just received and email from the Kickstarter team, we are approved and ready to go live. We are launching Monstermatic, the FIRST 3D PRINTING GAME, Monday September 16th 2013. The email ends with: “You’ll do great! We can’t wait to see your project live.” Best, Luke.
We have been working very hard for this and I want to give a special thanks to the entire Mico Studio team for being so dedicated to the project.
We are now able to translate monster designs made inside Monstermatic into a 3D printable figurines.The 3D information is sent automatically to 3D printers from one finger tap. We’re still working on payment processing and shipping information but this is a pretty big step for us and we wanted to share 🙂
