The Analogs NFT collection is bringing amazing sci-fi lore and unique NFT utility to the Flow blockchain! The 10K collection of PFP avatars comes from the groundbreaking literary magazine, Heavy Metal, and the Flow NFT marketplace, Sturdy.Exchange.
The lore of the Analogs NFT collection
Like any good sci-fi, this 10K collection of NFT avatars has incredibly rich lore telling the story of the Analogs.
To explain, Analogs are a group of half-robotic, half-biological beings. The superintelligent beings hail from the Gamma Ren system, just outside of Quadrant 4 in the Milky Way Galaxy. What’s more, the Analogs have an innate drive to create life forms.
To do this they use building blocks like nanotechnology and molecules. As a matter of fact, Analogs are so good at creating new life that they sometimes decide to inhabit the new bodies they have created.
Exciting Analogs roadmap includes brand new NFT art
Firstly, Analog pfp owners get access to a private Discord channel. Together with the other holders, they will have a chance to take on the roles of their Analogs and create an NFT of a wholly new organism. Holders will even be able to select the artist who will create the new avatar art.
This is where it gets even more interesting. After the new alien NFT art is created, each Analog holder will have the choice whether or not to transform their Analog NFT into the new NFT. If they choose to do so, they can burn their Analog and get a randomized, unique version of the new species.
Notably, Analogs NFT holders get full commercial rights to their PFPs. This also carries forward if holders choose to transform their NFTs into the new character.
Analogs NFTs also give a host of utilities to their holders from the very beginning. To that end, the initial utilities of the Analogs NFT collection will come in three phases:
Phase One: The Analogs Citadel
Holders will receive monthly airdrops of Heavy Metal magazine for six months. Not only that, but they’ll also get the very first issues of the comic series Taarna, Cold Dead War, Stable, and Never Never.
By the same token, they will get an exclusive sneak preview of two upcoming graphic novels from Heavy Metal and Herø Projects. And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be exclusive giveaways, whitelisting for new NFT collections from Heavy Metal, early presale access, and random art NFTs directly from the Heavy Metal vault.
Phase Two: Only One Can Survive.
As mentioned above, Phase Two involves the choice that holders must make between their Analogs and the new NFT characters.
At the same time, the Heavy Metal team will create a 22-page standalone comic about the origin of the Analogs. Holders will be privy to the process, getting previews of the comic via sketches, concepts, layouts, and editorial materials. Upon completion, all holders will receive an airdrop of the comic.
Phase Three: Analogs NFT
This is the most secretive phase! However, rest assured that this top-secret expansion will bring a whole new batch of exciting utility. What we can tell you is that Phase Three will begin on May the 4th.
