sneak peek

Let’s meet our quirky runners!

Every single one of these energetic runners is unique. Traits consist of funky VR masks, fun facial features, cool (or questionable!) fashion items and even pizza! Inspired by gaming, the one trait that gives the collection its distinctive look are the virtual reality islands that our heroes run over. Together, the variety of traits combined offer billions of possibilities!

Mark Verhaagen

As an illustrator and character designer, Mark has worked for international brands like MTV Networks, KLM/Air France and Vodafone. The friendly positive vibe of his work also led to many collaborations in the toys industry and other kids related projects. V-Runners is Mark’s first step in exploring the possibilities of NFTs.

During the pandemic, Mark started learning 3d. In order to bring his characters to life, he started experimenting with short animation loops. Trying to pack as much character and story as possible in as few frames as possible, these exercises quickly turned into a favorite pastime. During one of these sessions, the idea for V-Runners was born.

What are the utilities for the NFTs?

Right now we’re solely a 3D art project. As we progress in time we will be looking to add utilities that are real and feasible. As the space is getting more and more advanced, we believe that there will be great opportunities for utilities that we can implement for the V-Runners NFT collection.

Will there be a V-Runners game?

We think that the V-Runners theme and concept is perfect for a mobile game. We are actively searching for  game-developers that can help us in realising this idea. We don’t want to promise that it will happen (fast), but we are willing to put our time and efforts into creating this.

Ps: If you are a game-developer and think you can help us in this process, feel free to reach out.

Will there be giveaways?

We continuously host giveaways on our Twitter account and Discord server. Make sure you check it out.
