GM whiskers 🐟 Hope everyone is enjoying the peak of summer and getting some vitamin D while you can. You know how it is, the team has been grinding - here are some of our updates!
We’re happy to welcome longtime holder and lore writer Tinkerboops to our team as a Loresmith! He will be helping Rico out with writing for Whiskers and other various items. You may have already read some of his work, as he was the first winner in our previous lore writing contest! He’s already written more than 10 pages of lore, which Rico has been curating/editing/rewriting (Rico edit: we’re up to 16 pages now…) and will be coming to you all sooner than you think. Additionally, we have also hired brimmy to help with bookkeeping. With experience as a CPA, he will be lending his expertise to the team. Super excited to have these two new additions!
Interested in working with us? We are not hiring for any specific positions, but we are always open to hearing out ideas from new talent! Please send your proposal, resume, or CV with a description of the role you think would be a great addition to the team to email@example.com
We have been focusing heavily on the continued development of the Whiskers party card game this month. We’ve got a name, we’ve got a logo, and we’ve been steamrolling through early-access development using Tabletop Simulator to playtest the game with game designers and friends. Winnie and CHEERY, along with the rest of our creative team have been pumping out amazing card art. We’ll be sharing them on our twitter every now and then, so keep an eye out! And because we love our holders, we plan on creating two versions of the game - one released with some very special extras 🐟
We have also just closed off our first round of submissions to become a game tester, which means testing will be underway shortly and a select few of you will be able to play the game before anyone else! 🤩 We’re already in contact with the winners and will be scheduling time to play with them this week. We’re also considering broadcasting the whole experience and sharing it with our holders, but time will tell!
Looking for a new twitter banner? This month, we’ve released a twitter banner builder, allowing holders to use their own Whiskers to design their personalized banner 🎨 Big shout out to Tchoupi for helping out with the development of this project. The team can’t wait to see the banners our holders build!
As for merch, we have been getting samples and quotes from manufacturers. For now, we have been focusing on clothing and plushies and can’t wait to share updates on that front soon!
With the Adventurer’s Guild kicked off at our NFT NYC event, we’ve been building future quests, with Wolves leading the charge. Master Allard has been dropping hints at the next quest in our Discord and on Twitter. Where is the map…where is the Rising Café? And where is Mr. Sprinkles!? You may also find more of our lore (including quest lore) on our HYYPE page which we’ll be using a lot more from now on… Will you be able to figure out what the mystery reward is? 🤔
Continuing on with collaborations, here are the wonderful projects we’ve had the pleasure of working with in the past month:
MustacheDave and Champanini also had a wonderful chat with Rumblerz in a twitter spaces about their upcoming launch!
As always, thanks for sticking with us and being interested in everything Whiskers! Can you believe it’s already been 4 months since our mint? Time flies, and already so much has happened. I’m extremely excited to start play-testing the card game with some lucky holders this week. Keep your eye out for an insane amount of lore coming before the month is out. Anyways, I’ll leave the 4th official edition of the Windrose Times with an extra little bit of alpha…
Thank you all for believing in us on our journey! Whiskers is always striving to provide value to our holders. Don’t be afraid to approach the team with any questions, concerns or suggestions. We are always here to help and hear you out! ❤️
