Client's request
The client wanted to create a game called Shaggy Hads, where the base of the universe would be furry, beautiful and spherical aliens. They should be as detailed as possible and become a calling card for the NFT universe promotional campaign.
Result
Our team put maximum creativity and effort into creating a variety of mechanics for the Shaggy Hads universe. We designed fluffy ball-shaped aliens with stunning detail, giving each character their own unique style and personality.
These aliens became not only the main characters of the game, but also key elements of NFT's promotional campaign.

Simply amazing! The Shaggy Hads were a true work of art and the fluffy aliens you created exceeded my expectations. They became an integral part of the universe you and I created. Your team demonstrated an amazing level of creativity and attention to detail in creating each character. Incredibly excited to own unique digital versions of these lovable creatures as part of the NFT. Thank you so much for the inspiration and for your top notch work! Grazie mille!
Developing this project was a uniquely creative process. Not only were we creating a game, but we were also fulfilling a long-held dream of the client, which was particularly exciting. He wanted our game to be an innovative and unique creative product. Since the customer was also the mastermind behind the project, we regularly communicated with him and the whole team, discussing how to improve the game. It was a unique experience of interesting and friendly development.
