June 16th, 2022

Hey Whiskers 🐟 Hope you’re having a great beginning of summer and you’ve been getting a chance to go out and touch grass. The Whiskers team has been full steam ahead working on building out all sorts of things for our game, NFTNYC, collabs, community and so much more! Here’s a little look into what we’ve been up to.

What we've been up to!

Whiskers: The Game

Starting off with - the game! Lots of brainstorming has been going on behind the scenes towards the Whiskers game and we aren’t allowed to reveal too much yet. However, with constant research and development, the game mechanics have been decided upon and we are going to start prototyping soon. We are also working on lore for the game to provide an awesome immersive experience.

Creative Projects

Rico, Winnie and the creative team have been hustling in the past month with tons of assets for NFTNYC and collaborations. Besides that, we have been working on a full official map of the Great Pond. This is a visual element that will be crucial for the further development of lore and will hopefully aid holders in coming up with lore of their own 📜🎨🖌️

Speaking of lore, we have completed lore for the Whiskers traits! These will soon be available for reading on our new and improved website. Yes, you heard right. Mu has been hard at work building out a website that better caters to the Whiskers’ needs post-mint. We will be rolling out the website (complete with trait lore) in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.

Community

We’ve recently partnered with Generative Dungeon to try out a fun experience for holders to obtain allowlist spots from our collaborations. With custom lore written throughout, holders can have fun while being rewarded. Keep an eye out on our announcements for allowlist spots on our custom Generative Dungeon. If you’re interested in playing, use this link here and search for dungeon #128 (Password: Whiskers).

This is highly classified, but if you’ve been paying attention you might’ve heard whisperings of a super secret project brewing in the Great Pond tying in the community, IRL events and .. did someone say guilds? 👀

IRL Events

As you’ve probably heard, we’re hosting an event at NFTNYC🌆 in collaboration with Starcatchers, Vinnie Hager, Monstersuit and Sprite Club. RSVPs have already been handed out and we’re so excited to meet everyone IRL. We’ve been creating designs to deck the venue out Whiskers-style. We’ll also make sure no Whisker leaves empty handed! Look forward to awesome views, drinks and merch 😍

For those who will be in town and couldn’t snag an entry into the collaboration event, we may have something else in store for you 😉no Whisker gets left behind.

Rico’s Updates

I’m having a ton of fun working on the party-esque card game! We’re moving into prototyping the game after NFT NYC and it’s going to be a blast. We’ve narrowed down the mechanics to a few different sets of ideas and are going to test each one out extensively! Iteration is going to be the key here. Thanks for sticking around! I’m so excited to tease some of our first game cards and art soon too!

I am Rico, and I approve of this message.
