Collider Craftworks, My Pet Hooligan and Jurassic Punks are to form a 3-way Partnership to help shape and nurture growth in the NFT space, building the Metaverse of the future utilising Unreal Engine 5.
An open Metaverse for all has always been the biggest goal and this can only be achieved through collaboration, a sentiment held by all three studios, only together can we truly create an experience available to all.
All three studios have a wealth of experience in VFX, motion capture, storytelling, gaming and animation and aim to work together by utilising decades worth of high end studio experience to push boundaries within the space. By collaborating and opening up each others skillset and talents all three studios feel they can help shape and mould the Metaverse of the future.
Initially the partnership will see all three studios working together in an open way to allow the sharing of knowledge, utilities, and ideas. This open approach will strengthen output and creativity and in turn will push boundaries for what’s deemed possible in the NFT and Metaverse space.
Post mint for Collider, MPH and Jurassic Punks the trio plan to strengthen their relationship further so watch this space…
Daniel Gómez Cortés Studio Director “The Unreal Engine is establishing a much needed industry standard for interactive experiences and games. This allows creators to build off of eachother work and opens a world of possibilities. One of our core objectives as a company is to facilitate the creation of an immersive world with rich avatar experiences by leveraging our skills, toolsets and content. Collaborating with My Pet Hooligan and Jurassic Punks is a significant leap in this direction.”

About My Pet Hooligan
For years they were forced to farm $karrots, and were bound in cages at the mercy of their overlord Metazuckbot, CEO of Zuck Corp. A rebellion ensued where 8888 Bunnies managed to free themselves from captivity to realise their true potential in a new world void of constraints and laws. They became Hooligan.
My Pet Hooligan is the flagship WEB3 project by AMGI Studios, an animation and gaming studio, who also recently worked on the futuristic Coldplay x BTS music video. Headed up by a team that includes decorated animation veterans and gaming experts, including Pixar and ILM alumni, the project is on a mission to deliver a unique NFT experience that not only gives you the tools to empower and embody your NFT but also have fun and compete in a ‘play-to-earn’ game being developed in Unreal Engine 5.
My Pet Hooligan’s genesis NFT collection launched in December 2021 and the team is continuing to build out its exciting technology, game and universe. This will see an expansion into further collections, apps and an Unreal 5 Metaverse.
