Award-winning animation company Omen Studios further expands its creative offering to a global audience by launching its new program, the ‘Multiverse Omens‘ to integrate animation and film-based IPs into virtual reality and interactive experiences. The studio has two projects currently in development – Circle Line and Oasis – both of which will be available as VR experiences and will have NFT collections. Omens Studios is also creating a Roblox experience based on the hit series Leo the Wildlife Ranger, coming Q2 2023.
The Omens Multiverse site was launched on December 12, 2022 and comes with a web3 framework based on the Ethereum blockchain. NFT holders will be able to earn Omens’ special token, the Omens Multiverse Token (OMT), which can be used to claim a number of benefits as well as in-world items within the VR experience.
The first Circle Line project, based on Taipan Film’s Circle Line, with visual effects created by Omens Studios, will feature an algorithmically generated NFT collection and is scheduled for release in late December 2022, ahead of the film’s release in Singapore and Malaysia on January 5, 2023. Following this, the project roadmap will conclude with the development and release of the Circle Line VR experience which is expected to release in Q4 2023 on major virtual reality stores.
Through the program, NFT holders will be entitled to benefits including movie tickets, access to exclusive members-only content, promotional codes for merchandise, and whitelist locations for priority NFT access in other Omens Multiverse projects. In addition to these benefits, NFTs can be staked to earn OMTs, which can be used to claim a free VR experience download in Q4 2023 as well as other special items globally. The immersive story-driven experience will allow audiences to enter the world of Circle Line, overcome obstacles and survive the night in a virtual reality experience that puts you right in the thick of the action – face to face with Circle Line Monster!
Oasis is also in development, based on Omens Studios’ award-winning first animated short of the same name. This project will involve an all-new series of interactive virtual reality stories where audiences can play as a space miner – gruff gorilla George, along with cunning otter sidekick Trusty – caught in a chaotic civil war. The NFT Collection for Oasis is expected to be released in Q2 2023, with the VR experience launching in Q4 2023.
Omens Studios is also developing Roblox experiences for its multi-award-winning adventure preschool series Leo the Wildlife Ranger. These experiences for young children are designed to be a safe, fun and engaging extension of the hit series and will be released in Q2 2023.
Chi Sim Tang, CEO of Omens Studios, says, “We have assembled a team of passionate experts to bring our digital goals to life and provide our audience with a new opportunity to not only explore our popular IPs, but also work with partners and brands. to expand on their incredible storytelling and provide their fans with an interactive and immersive experience not possible in TV and film. The three projects we have in development seemed like a natural fit for digital expansions with their adventure themes and the ability to transport audiences to new places or even new worlds.
