past Apple games editor Adam Johnson has developed this game and it’s also an expansion of Redman’s latest, based on his signature Darcel character and 10,000 strong NFT drop of the same name.
In 2008 this artist based in New York created the egg-shaped Cyclops protagonist. Much like Bored Ape Club (officially) with Adidas and Gucci, or Crypto Punks (unofficially) with Tiffany & Co, he has since teamed up with brands such as Nike, Adidas, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Cocoa Cola, and Ikea.
to celebrate Paris’ iconic concept stores’ 15th anniversary, Redman worked together with Colette on an exhibition in 2012. The exhibit starred 150 Darcel-style versions of popular Colette’s friends, comprising Karl Lagerfeld, Steve Jobs, Anna Wintour, and Kanye West. Sarah Andelman one of the Colette co_founder, Lucien Pages as a Frech PR guru, and many others have since personalized Darcels as Instagram PFPs.
The characters of Redman’s Dour Fits NFT drop will also be the protagonists of his recent blockchain fashion game.
The Dour Fits Game is focused on community and fashion. Some of the community of Dour Darcel and Dour Fits holders’ ability will be to connect their wallets to play, styling their Darcel character in a virtual dressing room. For becoming virtual in-game clothing sets they will use some traits from their NFT, and also extra options in the game to contribute to the themed challenge.
Redman said We use the benefit of the metadata involved in NFTs and used the technology to create something else. the challenges will be for several events on the calendar, containing Paris Fashion Week and the Oscars, and it the year depending on the time will change, he added. to discern the winners The Darcel NFT community will vote and the awards will implicate NFTs and digital wearables that exist on the blockchain and in real life.

On the secondary market, the NFTs that are airdropped into winners’ wallets will be tradeable. Redman announces he’s working on an app to bring it to a vaster audience because the game is presently only for Darcel holders.
by hitting 10,000 Dour Darcels, Redman entered the NFT discussion in March, an algorithm developed from his original artwork. a limited-edition NFT partnership with Colette was pursuing this to give the store that closed its physical doors in 2017 a second chance in the Metaverse.
an integral part of Darcel’s personality is fashion, the most exciting aspect about him is a collection based on that articulates his tastes and cultural references, he says the community is the most crucial part. Brands like Gucci and Adidas have co-operated with members of the comprising Web 3.0 community so they joined the Web 3.0 or NFT space most successfully.
Redman’s third NFT is Dour Fits which releases the fashion concern collection’s characters and looks based on the eclectic style of New York hipsters. At Villette 2012 some features like Anna Wintour Bangs’s hair and Ralph Lauren Mane’s hair from the Redmen exhibit are familiar to Darcel fans.
