Sci-Fi NFT Comic Project Lays Foundation for CCG Development

The year is 2142 AD. A corporate-controlled dystopian future is shaken when the last bitcoin (BTC) is mined and Satoshi Nakamoto’s long-dormant wallet is awakened and used to dismantle their rule. increase. Entheogenic spirits, angels, and demons battle, disrupting the physical, virtual, and astral realms all while artificial intelligence (AI) battles AI to free conscious entities in the Metaverse.

This is the stage setter for a non-fungible token-driven (NFT) comics project led by an ambitious team of former game developers from Serbia. The Web3 platform connects the ever-popular comic book world with his NFT universe to establish the lore of a pre-production virtual tabletop RPG board game.

2142 CEO and COO Dušan Žica dives into the project’s premise in an exclusive interview with Cointelegraph. Zitsa, who worked as a copywriter and advertising director for 11 years, made the switch to video in late 2021, seven years before he came up with the idea for 2142, in his game development world.

Frustrated by the swarms of copycat collections in the NFT space, his team envisioned a GameFi comic where users create, collect, and edit panels and pages from the 2142 AD comic series. An organization (DAO) that guides the progress and ending of the story.

Cointelegraph began the process of researching Web3’s website and creating and editing the first edition of the 2142 comic. By paying the gas fee, users get a small bundle of free randomized NFTs of his, giving you the first piece of the comic book puzzle.

As Žica explains, users will need to purchase a total of 15 to 20 bundles to complete the first 34-page comic. While these bundles may give users two of the same panel or page, ERC-20 NFTs can be bought and sold on platforms such as his 2142’s own NFT Marketplace and his OpenSea, where collectors can buy comics can be completed.

The first issue of 2142 AD also includes a randomized cover page, adding to the unique collectibility of comic books that will be minted into a complete single NFT when completed.

“There are different covers based on random models, different characters and combinations. Burning an entire collection of panels presents one NFT problem. There should be.”

Veteran comic collectors are accustomed to shelling out tens or hundreds of dollars for the latest or rare issue of their favorite comic, but it takes at least $30 to complete the first issue of 2142. Once the first edition is complete, users will receive airdrops of characters, locations, and items from her 2142 universe that can be used to create new five-page spin-offs of him webcomics based on the user’s choices. .

“In this way we are actually decentralizing and randomizing worldbuilding. It’s a new concept and no one realizes they’re doing it,” Žica said. increase.

These characters, locations, and items are basically part of the pre-production of the team’s long-term goal of creating a collectible card video game and tabletop RPG in the Cyberpunk 2020, Cult, and World of Darkness typ. form. Žica said the true value of NFT’s intellectual property is realized and executed in video games.

“We are in the process of pre-production for a CCG video game as we all come from video game production backgrounds. It helps enhance the world building.”

The 2142 team also wanted to avoid NFT’s ‘flippers’ becoming part of the space and getting new digital collections in the hope of big profits.

Žica confirmed that their Ethereum-based NFTs will be available on platforms like OpenSea — just as Reddit’s collectible NFT avatars are listed and sold at a premium on popular markets. by the method of

According to the project outline, members of 2142 DAO will be entitled to a revenue share of the in-development tabletop RPG, CCG video game, and anime series.
