ZeptoLab, creators of the award-winning game “Cut the Rope”, in conjunction with Ape Entertainment, developers of the hugely popular “Pocket God” digital comic series, is proud to announce ‘Om Nom,’ the lovable character from the game, is now a comic-book hero in his very own app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Millions of the game’s fans have fallen in love with the adorable, green monster and now, through the new comic series, they can learn more about Om Nom and his fascination for candy.
“The comic book is just the first step in broadening the reach of the Cut the Rope brand,” said Misha Lyalin, CEO of ZeptoLab. “Starting with plush toys, apparel and accessories, we see significant opportunities to build our licensing and merchandising business and bring Om Nom into homes around the world.”
The ‘Cut the Rope: Comic’ series begins in a quaint, little town where opportunity sometimes knocks, but in thirteen-year-old Evan Coulton’s case, opportunity leaves a plain and uninteresting box on his doorstep. Of course, the surprise contents inside are anything but plain and uninteresting.
Before Evan realizes what’s going on, both his kitchen and his life have been turned upside down by a little, green monster with an endless appetite for sweets. Om Nom’s sugar levels leave him either high on energy or lazily collecting more candy, as he and Evan discover just how much they have in common. Fans can follow the adventures of Evan and Om Nom as trouble unfolds in one of the most anticipated new comic series today.
“With millions of fans around the world playing Cut the Rope, the new comic series provides the first glimpse into the story of Om Nom,” said Semyon Voinov, co-founder, ZeptoLab. “Ape Entertainment shared our vision for extending the brand into the comic world and the result is a compelling story for all ‘Cut the Rope’ fans to enjoy.”
“The ‘Cut the Rope: Comic App’ is much more than a pages-to-pixels app – it’s an experience that taps into the power of iOS and unleashes the world of Om Nom to fans across the globe,” said David Hedgecock, CEO of Ape Entertainment. “We believe this is the exact direction that will satiate comic-book fans’ appetite in the digital age, as well as offer a reason to continue coming back to the App Store as well as local comic shops.”
