CYCLOPS 2022 ROADMAP

___________1.0 VISION ___________

CYCLOPS are not your next NFT PFP Project.

Technically Cyclops are also a generative PFP but this is only one part of our journey.

We have started building this journey many months ago and have been building creating since then. This project is one of the most ambitious NFT projects you will read about. We have many different phases of the project and have formulated the absolute endgame goal, which will take 2–3 years at least to accomplish. If you spend enough time, you will see and recognize how much involved we are within the NFT space, how we appreciate the community and that we approach this project with one goal only: To create!

But let’s not get ahead of the game. This Article shall introduce you to all relevant aspects and ideas that we have going after in 2022.

A year in NFTs as in 2021 can feel like 5 years of “normal life”. It’s all very fast-paced. The roadmap here is our master plan and we aim to stick to it. We are highly skilled team that acts flexible on new aspects, ideas and developments. Therefore we will at all times stay open minded for change and always make sure we get the best possible solution.

1.1. BUILDING A MEDIA COMPANY

We are at the beginning of a great digital revolution. It is the emergence of a new creator economy and the development of new decentralized structures. As never before in modern history, brands are committed to working with and empowering their own communities with participatory engagement.

Technologically, it is enabled by blockchain (in our case ETH) and non-fungible tokens. However, a major revolution that is happening in parallel is also a media shift. Cyclops is set to become a pioneer in this area. A so-called “blue chip project” where it’s about creating and building a brand together. We see the Cyclops as a Web3 media company. Cyclops are digital identity, but also cultural assets. They can be the ticket to an event, and are also a kind of exclusive club at the same time. But at its core, this exclusive club is primarily driven by creation. We are not dreamers. As a team, we’ve been used to producing. Our team has gathered creatives, product managers and business development managers to push this project to its maximum potential.

We have many small steps ahead of us. With one very big goal and it’s ok to dream big when starting a journey: Why not produce a high-end blockbuster CYCLOP (brand) at the end our journey, so strong and special that it is impossible to imagine pop culture without it. The story of Cyclops is just beginning, and you will find the first clues to this in the further course of the roadmap. You will quickly see the scope in which we think. It is exciting, it is digitally political, it is from the middle of our society and it is created with a lot of imagination and creative possibilities. Let’s start this journey together!

There will be 1000 EveryNFT Mintpass G1 available on
February 3rd for 0.1 ETH. More details on the Mintpass will follow.

___________PHASE-3 ___________

4.1 — CYCLOP SKULLS AIRDROP

We are not a big fan on how the hype around the Cryptoskulls was created and a few people made a lot of money. We want to reflect on the community and send all Cyclops Holders their first Airdrop. It will be the CYCLOP SKULLS Airdrop with a special asset.

Through Snapshot NFT holders can decide if we should airdrop using Matic or do a Free Mint using Mainet (Gas).

4.2 —FUN AIRDROPS THROUGH OUT THE YEAR

Be prepared that we will send out some Fun Airdrops via Matic, sharing some Sketches or some fun ideas our creators and team has developed. These shall be little surprises to engage and reward our community.
Starting March — throughout the year

4.3 — SPRITE CYCLOPS

We will create up to 100 different Cyclops 2D Sprites. And after we buy the Webb Land and a Webb Asset we will do everything possible to partner with WebbLand. The Cyclop Sprites shall move around in Webb and enable our community a space to meet and hang out.

The price will be 0.015 ETH (around $40–50) exclusive to 2D PFP Holders. Drop: April 2022

4.4 — CYCLOOPS

Cansin has started working on the CYCLOOPS. These will be 2D walking Cyclops with many different accessories and traits. We are discussing the option to bring this out as a small collection depending on the Holder Ratio. For example if we have 2.000 CYCLOPS PFP Holders, there would be 2.000 CYCLOPPS. If we manage to partner with Random Character Collection (aka SlimHoods) this would need to be discussed accordingly.
Late Summer 2022 / Mint TBA.

4.5.— TARTARUS CITY AND SANDBOX VOXELS

As Sandbox is growing beyond the NFT space, one of the first goals we have is to purchase a Sandbox Land. We call it TARTARUS CITY. Within that land we aim to build different assets and partner with different brands like PROPERTY NFT.

Additionally to our own CYCLOPS Universe in Sandbox we will create Voxel Cyclops.

Begin Sandbox (with launch)

Mint: Exclusive to PFP Holders

4.6 — NFT & BRAND-PARTNERSHIPS

We believe in the NFT community and in the value many other artists have created. We have reached out and are in touch with the GEVOLS, PROPERTY NFT, Robotos, Deadfellaz, Random Character Collection and a few more. Nothing final here yet to announce, but we are very confident that we will be able to partner with one or more Blue-Chip project. We will reach out to many others, especially once the CYCLOPS are minted and community is alive, we will have a much better reach.

We have also added a new member to our Team for Brand Partnerships and will grow that division quickly. Our Founders have two agencies and one film production company in Germany. Their networks is very well established. This will also lead to Brand-Partnerships outside of the NFT world. And tbh: We have already started with some brand licensee to discuss different options. This will unfold once the project picks up more and more attention.

4.7 — DECENTRALIZED BUILDING & SURPRISES

We have a few ideas and work-in-progress aspects that we can not share yet. But hopefully quite soon.

___________PHASE-4 ___________

5.1— CYCLOPS COMICS

Cansin has created many comics books in the Past, including “Der letzte Deutsche” which currently also aims to become a Film in collaboration. The comic book is a very important step in the Cyclops journey as it will outline the entire universe, conflicts and storyline of the Cyclops. This will also help us to create a Anime Version of the Cyclops and help us reach our end-goal: to create a Full Blown Large Film Production. We have created the first mini-expose of the Cyclops Comic book that we are sharing here with you.

This is still very rough and work-in-progress.

The Comic Mini-Treatment / Expose

It is the year 2035 and the Cyclops, one-eyed creatures that look terrifying but could do nothing to a fly, are used by the human race to do the “dirty work” of society. They are garbage men, miners, or take on any strenuous work that they can do without any problem due to their size (2m) and strength (as strong as three adult men). The Cyclops themselves do not have high demands on life. Most of them live together with other Cyclops in ghettos that are partly delimited and partly controlled by borders. The Cyclops have their own TV shows, they have their own (very strange) eating habits and also their own rituals — a world of their own. Few and through a process selected so-called “integrated Cyclops” live with people, some of them have “worked their way up” and take on gardening jobs, are “Personal Assistants” or personal “Drivers”. They are the exceptions.

While the humans are unaware of any flaws about this form of cooperation and the Cyclops don’t know any better, a small group of revolutionary Cyclops are forming in the Cyclops underground. They form the group “Cyclops X”. The premise of “Cyclops X” is initially very different. Some demand better living conditions, more pay and more equality. Others demand a hard revolution and have social power claims. A separatist small part of “CYCLOPS X” splits off, among them a didactic scientist.

Through the work of that splitter group around the “Scientist” the unimaginable happens: a group around the scientist mutate a single Cyclops into an oversized Mega-Cyclops! The “Cyclops X” project spirals out of control. The mutated Mega-Cyclops runs through the streets and terrorizes people. A special unit must take out the Mega Cyclops. It makes the news around the world.

This event changes the relationship of the humans to the Cyclops and also the “friendly core” of all Cyclops themselves. From now on, nothing will be the same…

___________PHASE-5 ___________

Enough?! Not yet.

6.1 — CYCLOPS 3D

Based on the Genesis 1/1 3D Walking Cyclops we will be creating a 3D Cyclops Series. Ideally these will be rigged and can be used in the Metaverse (however this develops). Although so many projects seemingly bring out 3D projects out, most of these are quite fast produced and not very well executed. We aim for the stars here.

2D PFP Holders, EveryNFT Mintpass Holders and holders of the Special Editions will be have WL spot.

Drop: Fall / End of 2022.

___________BEGINNING OF 2023___________

So after all of this, what else can come?! We have actually started working on aspects we want to publish in 2023 before even selling one single NFT!

CYCLOPS GAME & TOKENOMICS

First off: The narrative and the entire CYCLOPS universe will make a fantastic game. Therefore we have reached out different Gaming Studios in Germany and are in talks for a partnership. We will hopefully announce more on this topic by Summer 2022.

Negotiations: Started
Creative Work Begins: Q3/Q4–2022
Beta Version: Q1–2023

If you are still not convinced by our commitment, we can’t help you. :)
You can be rest assured that our team is a team of builders and creators. Creation is the fuel of our life. The Cyclops will be the outcome of many many years of experience and we are so thrilled and excited to be able to create all this in Web3 with a growing and open community!

Help us share our roadmap and journey. THANK YOU.
