8,999 NFTS GUTTING IT OUT ON THE POST-APOCALYPTIC BLOCKCHAIN

Due to an unfortunate lapse in judgement by Airman Norman F. Polaski (and his misplaced cheese-steak), we regret to inform you that at on December 15th, 2021, an accidental nuclear first strike was launched by the United States from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (N.O.R.A.D.)

Taking place at approximately 1:11:11am local time, the world’s other super powers quickly retaliated and just like that, our greatest fears were realized — global, thermonuclear war. Earth go boom-boom.

Of the planet’s 7B+ population, only a few lucky souls managed to survive. Protected by the thick walls of their parents’ basements, these oblivious, video game playing nerds are all that’s left of humanity. Their mission, should they choose to accept it, is to scavenge what they can, repopulate the earth and save humanity. No biggie.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE STORY OF OUR UNFORTUNATE FUTURE

Nuclear Nerds of the Accidental Apocalypse isn’t just a simple collection of 8,999 male and female NFT’s, it’s a jumping off point for a narrative story world that will be told through a series of future drops and unique mechanics. Our character’s needs, wants, hopes, dreams and goals will guide the way forward while token holders will help co-write the story.

If you love collecting NFT’s, great storytelling and surprises, we invite you to grab your Nerd(s) and help them succeed in their daunting mission to save us all. The future of humanity lies in your hands. Don’t fuck it up.

THERE ARE NO ROADS WHERE THE NERDS ARE GOING

Every good story is full of surprises and we don’t want to spoil the ending before we even begin. But we will say this — we have some seriously awesome shit planned. At the same time, like any good community, we’re also here to listen and adjust. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned about apocalypses, it’s that no one survives if we don’t all work together. What we can promise is there are going to be plenty of plot twists, mysteries and surprises in store for everyone.

You've Got Questions. WE'VE GOT REASONABLY OKAY ANSWERS.

What are the specs?

Each Nerd is a unique ERC-721 NFT stored on the Ethereum blockchain. Minting a Nuclear Nerd (and saving humanity) costed .069 ETH and took place on December 15th, 2021.

What makes this project different?

This bears repeating: This isn’t an NFT avatar project with a story component. It’s a full blown story universe that leverages NFT’s and unique mechanics to push the story forward and reward the audience the deeper they go.

Do I own the IP rights to my Nuclear Nerd?

In short, yes. Feel free to use your Nuclear Nerd as an avatar, on a pair of dope new Vans, your own one-off hoodie or anything else your heart desires. Just don’t jack the project logo or use your Nerd for evil shit — we’re trying to save humanity here after all. See T&C for full details.

WHY ARE THE NERDS SKINS DIFFERENT COLORS?

Um… they’re fully irradiated.

HOW DID YOU KNUCKLE-HEADS GET INVOLVED IN THE NFT SPACE?

As life-long creative guys, we were built curious. We love new things and new spaces. (And storytelling.) Most importantly, we were drawn to this space because it feels like the first place to level the playing field, remove the middle-men and middle-women and just let creators create. We also love building community and partnering with small groups of people to change the world in some small (or medium-sized) way. Every day we are blown away by the creativity coursing through the veins of this space.

CAN I ASK MY VERY OWN QUESTION THAT YOU DIDN’T PRE-ANSWER FOR ME?

Yes. Find us in the Discord.

MEET THE NERDS BEHIND NUCLEAR NERDS

Line

You might not know our names, but we’ve made a career telling stories, occasionally for ourselves, but most often for others, including many brands.

DC (no comic affiliation) produced numerous films for BMW with actors like Clive Owen and directors like Guy Richie and John Woo, while hotshave has worked with the likes of Mike Judge and is the guy behind the global Share a Coke campaign.

Together, we found the unbelievable artist, illustrator and graphic novel creator Adam Archer, along with human Swiss-Army knife, Maclunkey, and the creative biz-dev force of nature, Simon.

We have all poured our hearts, souls and good ideas we've been saving for a rainy day into Nuclear Nerds. We hope you join us on this ride and discover all the twists and turns we have in store. Onwards!
