STOCKHOLM, March 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wasder, a global gamified social microverse for gamers, announced its collaboration with Alien Samurai Dino Warriors – an NFT art collection based on an upcoming comic book novel created by Dimitri “Vegas” Thivaios (of chart-topping EDM duo Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike) under the mentorship of Michael Uslan, originator and executive producer of the Batman movie franchise, and his son, David Uslan, an expert in the animation and graphic novel field.
The series revolves around a group of teen dinosaurs who defend a modern-day Earth through martial arts. The dinosaurs, who follow the code of the Samurai, are armed with glowing weapons that are powered by a mysterious crystal.
Alien Samurai Dino Warriors will be featured on the upcoming Wasder Battlepass in the Game of Wasder, the gamified portion of the social microverse platform. It allows each person to earn rewards for one month only. The game will offer exclusive rewards only available to Wasder users who participate in the Battlepass. Users will then be able to display their rewards/NFTs on their interactive user profiles, a new way of expressing both themselves and their reward stash in the community.
To celebrate the partnership, exclusive NFTs will be “airdropped” to the Wasder and Dino Warrior communities, and users will have a chance to win an interaction with Dimitri and challenge him in a game of his choice. The challenge will be streamed on the Wasder Twitch channel.
“For Wasder, this solidifies exactly what we envisioned our Game of Wasder would be – strong, innovative brands and amazing teams connected to them. I grew up on comic books, and to now be able to present a partnership with Dimitri and his team is full circle for me. Our Battlepass is featured for a full month, and this is our first exclusive feature we are announcing,” says Thomas Gronnevik, CEO of Wasder.
“I think our users will be very happy with the celebratory NFT airdrop we’re doing. The NFTs can of course be shown in our upcoming user profile showroom, together with future features and drops we will do. I also look forward to the streaming challenge with Dimitri and whoever wins the right to challenge him,” he adds.
Also on the Dino Warriors team is comic book writer Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters, Back To The Future, Transformers, A-Team, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics) and has artists like Jim Starlin (the creator of Marvel’s Infinity War Thanos and Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Draw & Gamorra) working on art. Dimitri himself is appearing next summer in the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion blockbuster, as well as in his first lead role in the European movie ‘Hazard’.
We’re starting to see a huge uptick between the crossing of entertainment and gaming as music artists look to expand their brand and use their creativity in other ways. Alien Samurai Dino Warriors was born from Dimitri Vegas’ childhood passion for comic books and cartoons.
“I had the privilege to grow up in a world of Saturday morning cartoons and stores filled with comic books. My goal is to bring some of that golden age to a new generation of kids and have Dino Warriors claim their place in pop culture history. Looking forward to connecting with the Wasder fans and bringing some awesome content to their Battlepass,” says Dimitri.
