MINT A MARA

Gyris is more than a beautifully crafted NFT project!
Our vision is to become the world’s first Web3 film and gaming franchise.

‘Gyris: The Sound of Trees Standing’ delivers a narrative driven project with truly deep narrative. A world-first experiment in collaborative creativity and ownership, the team will release storyline and art while funding infrastructure and opportunities that reward a community of holder-artists. As an artist or a fan, you will be asked to colour our rich story with your own art and voice and together build the tapestry to best depict our world.

Gaming

We want to bring the beautiful world of Gyris to life and we chose Gaming as the first medium to do so. This way we can keep developing high-quality 3D assets for the game and have them at hand for once the movies and series are ready to be made. Furthermore, gaming is a beautiful way to experience and interact with a creative behemoth like Gyris: full of races, creatures and stories to be told.

Our main release is planned to be new type of social MMORPG experience. A way for which, will be paved by releasing multiple AAA quality Minigames. This gives us ability to engage with our community and show development progress, while we are slowly building all these 3D assets and game mechanics in Unreal as the main release - MMORPG will take great amounts of resources and time.

First Minigame

Currently playable for our community - Alpha release of our Ogg Racing Minigame. Load your rider and a mount character NFTs and Compete against other players in a Mario kart style of race: attacks allowed, drift and jump to outmaneuver, dodge obstacles and projectiles, collect boosts and perform special attacks to outrun others. Competitive mode and wagering coming soon.

Game map of Buralands

Buralands is the home to one of our 4 playable races - The Bura. It alone is bigger than 2500 km2 and accommodates more than 70 villages and 2735 plots of land.

Inspired by North Western Australia and Papua New Guinean geography we find dense forest, high mountains, deep cuts and valleys. Thunderous rivers but also endless branches of creek forks cutting lines in the mountainside. Families carve paths into the earthen clay and form walkways from their hut to the waterways to wash and bath and fish.

Story

As the gluttonous Minjierri slaughter the creatures of Gyris, a generation of Bu-Raa-Oo go to their aid. In their absence a reluctant hero must rise and take a perilous quest in search of his fated ‘Tua’, a weapon divined by the gods themselves. But the darkness of battle pales to the evil of the Ochichurri who feast on flesh in the shadows. If Aggy is to become the future of his people, he must learn; that no one alone can fight the dark.

$GYRIS ecosystem token: Full tokenomics made available to community prior to initial circulation
Gyris: The Sound of Trees Standing (On-screen)
Ongoing releases - 24 months

The core creative focus for the team will be to execute the best representation of Gyris: The Sound of Trees Standing on-screen. Our commitment is, that if we can’t fully fund the project, we will create something so damn fantastic that it will attract the funds to make it in full.
Gyris Dao Launchpad
Ongoing

Each new ‘universe’ or ‘reality’ will have its own relationship with its relevant community, DAO and intellectual property. Members of this community can put forward proposals consisting of a creative thesis and go to market strategy, for story forks and new projects that become part of the overarching Multiverse.

A World of Our Making

Gyris is excited to grow the artistic representation of the world we will come to love. As the community will be well-aware, the value of our underlying asset will greatly affect the level at which we can execute a grand vision, given the high quality and cost of the art we produce. We are however confident of strong market conditions and of blowing you all away.

We want you to think big with us. Live-action or animated? Does Gyris work as a series? Will our community make the first NFT-funded feature film? What does Gyris the game look like? The bigger the budget, the bigger the project, all leveraged to expand Gyris and the multiverse.

Together…. we’re the fuckin modern day love-child of Lucas Films and Marvel, co-writing and directing Baz Luhrman’s Lord of the Rings.
