Hello Recruit! You are about to be part of a historic moment in The Bone: the creation of the Kickstarter Special Edition Nerea that will look completely different from the current Nereas. If you are a Founder, you will decide on the design by choosing everything from the frame to the general aesthetic of the Nerea.
This activity will involve those who got voting rights as part of their Founder Pack, and our community that exists in Social Networks.
The design will be divided in 4 stages:
Stage 1: Open Design
In this stage, everyone will participate in designing a Nerea within the given parameters. The best design will be shared in our Social Networks.
You will choose every aspect of a Nerea and at the end create a drawing of your Nerea and share it with The Bone in our Social Networks. You will decide the following aspects:
Theme & Style
To participate you need to go here: https://thebonegame.typeform.com/to/VBoNZYA0
When you are done, make a drawing of your Nerea and share it with us on Social Media, you can publish it in your own account, send it to us directly via DM, or by using the #TheBoneNerea. It doesn’t matter if you are not good at drawing, we will share the most original designs.
Stage 1 begins now and will end on September 30. Designs sent will only serve as inspiration for the Kickstarter Nerea.
Stage 2: Design Elements Voting.
During this stage, each element will be selected between founders and community members in social media in the following way. We will use the most popular answers from stage 1 to determine 6 or 8 different options for each element. In each design round, these options will compete in a playoff tournament in our Social Networks to determine the final 3 or 4 options. Then, the founders will vote on which of these finalists will be the winner.
Voting will take place as follows:
Frame: Founders only in Central Command
Species: Social Media playoffs to determine the finalists and then Founders voting in Central Command.
Subspecies: Social Media playoffs to determine the finalists and then Founders voting in Central Command.
Theme & Style: Social Media playoffs to determine the finalists and then Founders voting in Central Command.
Stage 2 will begin in October, exact dates of each voting round will be shared later on.
Stage 3: Final Design.
For this stage, The Bone’s art team will create 4 Nerea Concepts using the winning elements and combining them with body types and personalities.
From these 4 concepts, 2 finalists will be selected in Social Media in the same “Playoff” format as Stage 2. Finally, Founders will vote in Central Command to decide the final, winning design.
Esta etapa ocurrirá a principios de Noviembre.
Stage 4: Naming and Creation
Lastly, The Bone’s Art team will 3D model and animate the Nerea using the winning elements of the final design. Once the Nerea is ready, founders will vote to decide the Name.
