Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 31 May,2015
Have you missed Nelly, and Sherihan ? ... Have you missed solving the questions and sending the solutions to win prizes at the end of Ramadan ? :))
We do :)) ... So we are making the NEW Fawazeer with a digital twist.
For those who are not familiar with the term "Fawazeer": Fawazeer is a type of competition that was popular in the 80s and 90s during the holy month of Ramadan. People would watch a TV program with daily riddles and submit solutions to the riddles in order to win prizes.
Alf Leila in SuperSayem Fawazeer Demo app:
Our team has created Alf Leila comics, a contemporary extension of the famous cultural heritage story also known as "Arabian Nights" but re-invented as contemporary comics. We told stories of the 30 wives who came before Sharazade. The stories were imaginary, going beyond time and space, telling short stories of King Shahryar with ladies from different times and cultures.

In 2014, we launched the SuperSayem Fawazeer demo app on
Facebook to host the first season of Alf Leila. People
could read the comics and play the Fawazeer game on their computers.
The demo got 46,000 Facebook fans, and 10,000 players used the Facebook app.

BUT NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We want to have the 2015 season of Alf Leila live to everyone in the Middle East, and to make the Alf Leila NEW Fawazeer the people's favourite Ramadan habit.
In order to create the 2015 season, we need $25,000 to:
1. Launch the Alf Leila Fawazeer website and mobile apps for iPhone and Android.
2. Design and release 30 episodes of the Alf Leila new tales.
3. Get prizes for the winners.
4. Cover marketing costs for the competition.
We happily welcome any additional funding! If we get an extra $20,000, we will be able to produce one cartoon animation short movie, increase our marketing, and provide more prizes!
Our ultimate target is a total of $80,000, which will allow us to make more and longer cartoon movies, do awesome marketing, and give out more and bigger prizes!
What you Get? ...
Despite the Arab huge cultural heritage, we lack genuinely creative cartoons for grownups. People love foreign series like "The Simpsons" but we have almost no local, Arab alternatives.
With your support of this project, you will be helping our team in a serious attempt to change that. You will be helping our team create contemporary art based on Arabian heritage, powered by social media and mobile technology capabilities as faster ways of communication.
When we first thought of doing the Fawazeer, we asked people about their feelings about it. Here’s what they had to say:
Scenes from the 2014 Alf Leila Comics:
Episode 1: Shahryaar and The Genie
Episode 2: Nancy the fruity girl
Episode 13: Dalal the Mighty
Episode 18: Montella - The Emo Girl
Episode 27: Jennifer, and the Oscars
