The OVERVIEW


We have an incredible track record of building quality content, with huge upcoming releases on the horizon

 

Chicken Waffle was founded in January of 2017, and has built an impressive portfolio of award-winning games and experiences. We have built and launched some fantastic original IP, alongside a library of quality work-for-hire projects for an amazing list of clients and partners! Our work has received several awards, including an Auggie Award for "Best in Show" at AWE 2019, and "Best eSports Experience" at CES 2020.



As we continue to grow our original IP, we have been expanding our game publishing pipeline to include several more amazing titles set to launch over the next 18 months. CEO and Founder Finn Staber is an industry veteran with a diverse skill set in game programming, design, 2D/3D Artwork, animation and visual FX. He has helped advise several successful tech start-up companies, and has consulted for several Fortune 500 companies to help build their R&D programs. He was Programmer/VFX Lead at Portalarium, and Co-Founder/CTO of the popular music platform, WaveXR. His leadership background, and strong knowledge-base for technology development, make him one of the top developers in the industry.


As an experienced development studio and game publisher, Chicken Waffle has the ability to build and deploy to Steam, Oculus, PlayStation, Viveport, XBox, Nintendo, iTunes, Google Play, Tencent and any additional digital gaming marketplace around the world.


THE Problem


Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are Still in Their Early Stages


From extensive market research, we have found that:


  1. The XR industry lacks market leaders for quality games and social eSports experiences. 
  2. Traditional PC and console games are less immersive, and provide less social connection.
  3. The AR/VR hardware industry is quickly growing user adoption, and players are hungry for more quality content.

THE Solution


Building the future of XR gaming


We are here to build immersive content for every major platform. 


Already having launched games in 38 regions around the world - we have developed award-winning location-based solutions, and are preparing to launch eSports and social games in malls around the world in 2022.





Chicken Waffle’s goal is to continue growing our publishing efforts to become one of the top game studios. We have built some of the best social experiences across the metaverse, and our industry connections open possibilities to grow our publishing library across the gaming marketplace.




Additionally, we’ve built an impressive portfolio of AR/VR games and experiences for a high-caliber list of clients and partners. We then continued to invest our revenue back into the company to grow our library of original IP, along with developing a robust framework of tools for building/publishing interactive content.


This award-winning original IP has grown a large audience with hundreds of millions of fans - thus, giving us a major opportunity for success.



THE Market


XR Gaming is a Multibillion-Dollar Market, and Quickly Expanding


Virtual reality is where the internet was 20 years ago - it’s a nascent but high growth market that has the power to change everything. 


The number of gamers worldwide is still on the rise and will exceed 3 billion by 2023. The global games market revenue for 2020 was about $159.3 billion, with a +9.3% year-on-year increase.


*Source


Additionally, the global virtual reality in gaming market size is expected to reach  $92.31 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 30.2% over the forecast period. The intensifying demand for technologically progressive electronic games amongst millennials is anticipated to drive the market growth from 2020 to 2027.


Long-term growth for AR and VR headsets will be strong throughout the forecast period with shipments growing to  76.7 million units in 2024 - resulting in a CAGR of 81.5%.

We have built an extensive interaction framework, along with multiplayer networking solutions for eSports, and some of the most realistic physics-based VR combat features in the world. Our wide range of quality IP allows Chicken Waffle to be positioned for success as the market continues to grow.

The 10% StartEngine Owners' Bonus

Chicken Waffle will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Class A Non-Voting Common Stock at $4.17 / share, you will receive 110 shares of Class A Non-Voting Common Stock, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $417. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors' eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are cancelled or fail.

Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDS

SECURE

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.
