iCandy Interactive Ltd (ASX:ICI) (“iCandy” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that a team of iCandy senior executives will be participating in the NFT.NYC Conference in New York City this week (12-14 April 2023). The NFT.NYC Conference is one of the largest NFT-related global events, inaugurated in 2019.
The iCandy team will be hosting an event for senior game industry leaders, as well as attending events hosted by other key Web3 gaming industry players including Animoca Brands, one of iCandy’s major investors.
The Company will also be introducing a new intellectual property (IP), designed and developed by iCandy’s award-winning subsidiary Lemon Sky Studios, The Engineers.
The Engineers is a collection of 10,000 unique, high-quality AAA female characters designed and created through generative art techniques. Featuring distinct elements of futuristic fashion and Neo-Tokyo aesthetics, the Engineers encompass a unique storyline set out across various environments, highlighted by the Engineers’ characters’ abilities to travel across time and space as they traverse the metaverse.
iCandy plans to license The Engineers out as an IP for NFTs, as well as for games and metaverse projects. To this end, the Company intends to license The Engineers to a publisher that will be developing and marketing NFTs based on the IP.
