The cult concept is a common marketing strategy among NFT projects, reflecting the community’s shared commitments and ideologies. However, as the competition for digital collectibles grows, creators need better tricks up their sleeves to stay ahead of the game.
Critters Cult is one of the emerging lore-based NFT projects that aim to stay long-term. Although relatively new, it has already attracted big names in the space, including Raj Gokal (Solana’s co-founder). On October 3, he changed his Twitter image to a Critters Cult PFP, receiving warm support from other holders.
The project owner, rbg, has also created other non-fungible collections (NFTs), including Solsunsets. Undoubtedly, his experience helped push the collection up to where it stands now, along with the team and community who helped him along the way.
What is Critters Cult?
Critters Cult is an indie NFT collection of 5,555 PFPs, featuring a combination of sci-fi visual narrative and pixel art. Each Critter has different sets of attributes (1/1, background, relic, creature, body, eyes, and head face), determining their corresponding rarity level.
Every Critters Cult NFT comes from one of the five realms, which hints at the reason for their differences:
Additionally, since the collection is in its first season, its narration begins at the AtomPunk origin. From then on, the project aims to link the background of other realms. If you’re eyeing these digital assets, you may check them out on various marketplaces like Magic Eden, Yawww, or Tiexo.
Critters Cult Lore
The origin of Critters Cult revolves around the forgotten town where unfathomable events occurred: the appearance of strange objects and patterns that emptied the streets. Its residents were aware of the growing incidents, but there could be more than what meets the eye.
As the blue hour came, two hotel guests went missing as they never returned from searching deeper into the woods. The only hint left was a note.
The lore doesn’t stop from here; it’s just the beginning.
Critters Cult has four principles, which generally focus on building the community and the web3 space as a whole. The project defined what it aims to uphold through the following:
Critters Cult aims to unite the community by providing a dynamic narrative that will slowly unfold in time, keeping them interested.
It comes in different stages, but all have one goal: to create opportunities for traditional multimedia projects using web3 features.
The project has a complex design, which the team intends to use for development that can go beyond the norm.
Suns Studio is responsible for establishing a community that stays and builds with the pfp collection, which is achievable through high-quality art and exclusive rewards.
What are $Pixels?
$Pixels is the native token of Critters Cult that allows the community to get exclusive rgb (project founder) creations as a reward for supporting the project. Holders can also use it to mint NFTs on the upcoming The Cloning Machine.
All Critters, Solsunsets, and 1/1 RGB holders are eligible to claim one $Pixel on the Suns Studio portal for every piece they own. You can use any available wallets to get your tokens, such as Solflare and Phantom.
Who Created Critters Cult?
Critters Cult was created by rgb and his team in Suns, a pixel art studio that he also co-founded. Suns Studio started with the goal of exploring art opportunities but currently grows with established partnerships from web3 brands and a strengthened relationship with artists and NFT enthusiasts.
Additionally, rgb happens to be a Solana artist known for creating a handful of projects. All his works use traditional art styles but leverage web3 features, as seen with Critters Cult and Solsunsets.
