Premium NFTs Feature the Idol of Cthulhu and Necronomicon
New Zealand, July 20, 2021 — New Zealand-based non-fungible token (NFT) app VeVe has partnered with Chaosium Inc., makers of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game, to bring their Mythos horror content to the digital collectible market.
With VeVe, fans can showcase their digital collections through the app’s virtual showrooms, featuring epic 3D dioramas, as well as virtually visit, comment on, and “like” showrooms from other collectors.
The initial Call of Cthulhu NFT drop features a masterful sculpt of the Idol of Cthulhu, used by cultists to venerate the long-forgotten being who may one day return to devour humanity. Also available in this series is a highly detailed replica of the infamous tome of Mythos lore known as the Necronomicon. Both digital objects were created under license to Chaosium by Australian studio Type40.
“Call of Cthulhu is an iconic horror roleplaying game, and has captured fans and readers dating back to 1981. VeVe is now bringing that cosmic horror to the digital world after 40 years” says David Yu, CEO of the VeVe platform.
Chaosium VP of Licensing Michael O’Brien adds, “We are pleased to partner with VeVe and Type40 to explore this new way to share our games and stories in the ever-expanding digital realm, especially in an environmentally friendly way.”
Since its inception, VeVe has used a distributed ledger technology that is over 99% more energy efficient than the Ethereum blockchain. In March 2021, VeVe committed to 100% carbon neutral NFTs and provided $7+ million in grants to environmental nonprofits to raise money for causes through NFT promotions.
The Call of Cthulhu digital collectibles series will be dropping on the VeVe app during Comic-Con@Home, set to take place the 23rd through the 25th of July 2021.
