CHAMPS X 3D NOUNS COLLAB
Tldr 2022 is the year of blockchain gaming, and it is time to see some nounish action! Lets integrate Nouns in Joyride’s upcoming NFT players ecosystem.
Joyride is a games company of 50+ employees with backgrounds at Disney, Electronic Arts etc and backed by Coinbase, Animoca, Solana Ventures, and other top blockchain investors. Their past projects include 7+ Top 25 Grossing Games with hundreds of millions of players.
Joyride is now building out the Champs Universe, featuring action and sports games built around playable NFT avatars. Tennis Champs is the first game of a series, and will be followed by Battle Champs and many more. The team wants to integrate blue chip NFT projects like BAYC and Nouns in their gameplay.
ABOUT TENNIS CHAMPS
Tennis Champs is a Collection of 3333 unique ERC-721 NFTs avatars starting the Champs Universe. It was sold out at the end of March in under 30 seconds and is currently trading at 2x mint price. The Champs are getting ready for intense tennis battles in an NFT-powered Play and Earn mobile game with a beta release coming soon! Learn more at Tennis Champs | Joyride Games 1
ABOUT 3D NOUNS
3D Nouns is the first community project that submitted a proposal to the nounsDAO back in September 2021 (Proposal #2). Coral Orca and 0xFloyd built a 3D generator similar to the Nouns playground, where you can choose traits and animate your own 3D Noun. Try www.3Dnouns.com
3D NOUNS X TENNIS CHAMPS
Joyride and Coral Orca will collaborate to adapt the work from https://www.3DNouns.com to the Champs Universe, starting with Tennis Champs. We want to:
Let Nouns owners access the equivalent of their noun in the game, and unlock play and earn features. This could get very interesting with delegation around nouns and the creation of guilds.
Create some specific in game assets, like tennis uniforms and nounish rackets for example.
If there is demand from the community, spin off a 3D Nouns Tennis Edition to unlock play and earn features at a smaller cost.
Advertise this CC0 collaboration between a game studio and a DAO.
Delivery August 2022, on the one year anniversary mark of the Nouns project.
JOINT MARKETING: NOUNS X TENNIS CHAMPS
On release, we could launch a marketing campaign to feature Nouns playing against BAYC for example.
- Produce a nounish animation clip around a Tennis match story (<1min). Could share on social media, and also create a TV ad. A 30-second trailer would be $60-$80k based on quotes we’ve received from several high quality providers.
- Have an installation at the Digital Art Fair in HK in October 2022 where people can build and play their Tennis Nouns using a set of Wii (Could be part of a larger project featuring Nouns X HK Digital Art Fair).
- Book some Media facades in major cities to feature the game in high traffic public spaces.
8 ETH for Coral Orca:
- Nounish direction: liaising with Joyride and the Nouns community to find the right product fit, from inception to release.
- Preparing the 234 heads assets to make sure they are compatible with the game engine and responding to 3D team requests.
- Preparing/Optimizing the 167 accessory + 30 body textures.
- Optimizing the body rigs.
- Creating additional assets (Tennis rackets, animations, sneakers, headbands etc).a
24 ETH for a joint marketing event NOUNS X TENNIS CHAMPS TBD
TOTAL: 32 ETH
This proposal is a work in progress and I will update this post regularly.
Any input welcome! Many thanks
