Creature World is a collection of 10,000 unique, randomly generated creatures that live on the Ethereum blockchain. The project was created by NYC-based artist Danny Cole, and sold out its initial drop in 13 minutes at 0.1 ETH mint price.
In an effort to protect consumers from a gas war, Creature World created a unique drop mechanic, aimed at providing fair distribution and defeating “mint bots.” Participants who wished to mint a Creature were dropped in a small Metaverse and forced to complete a simple task to gain access to the mint page.
Much of the project still remains a mystery by design, but in late September Creature holders were airdropped one of seven “Creature Playground” pieces per Creature they held. Though the details have not officially been released, members who are able to collect all seven playground pieces in one wallet are entitled to a future surprise.
Announced in mid-October, 2021, those groups that completed the Creature Playground puzzle are able to claim a physical print of the Creature Playground.
In late December 2021, Creature World announced Creature World's Second Journey, a new way for holders to experience their creatures. The team also announced a new website, creature.guide, which updates the project's roadmap to include the launch of the Creature World clothing line and varsity jackets for holders in January. Creature Labs is also expected soon, but details are scarce.
On Jan. 13, 2022, Creature World holders were given the ability to purchase a varsity jacket. The jackets, which are customizable, cost 0.06 ETH plus shipping and take two months to deliver. The rest of the merch store was made available to nonholders and holders alike to purchase merchandise from with ETH or USD.
On Mar. 22, 2022, Creature World announced the Traveling Creature. Five Traveling Creature NFTs are sent to Creature World holders. Holders then have two hours to send the Traveling Creature to another Creature World holder. After successfully transferring The Traveling Creature to another holder, the original collector received a Traveling Creature NFT.
