The Great Race
Long ago, the animal kingdom lived in harmony. Then, everything changed when The Ruler of The Heavens, The Jade Emperor wanted to find a way to devise time.
He spread the word that all the animals in the kingdom were to race across a river to the Heavenly Gates on his birthday. The first 12 animals would earn a place on the Zodiac calendar, in the order of which they arrived.
The Rat and The Ox
The Horse and The Snake
The Goat, The Monkey and The Rooster
Each Zodiac Friend is special and unique in their own way, no two are exactly the same. This is done by combining over a hundred thoughtful Asian variables (including outfits, items, accessories, colors, elements, expressions and more) to create 8888 different combinations.
Rarity is deemed firstly by the color of your Zodiac Friend. The most valuable and rare color is Jade, which is considered to be ‘The Stone of Heaven’. This is followed by gold. All other colors are held equal. You will also find other small details on your Zodiac Friend that increase the rarity. These for example can be jade necklaces, samurai swords, lion dancing outfits.
We pride ourselves on being made by Asians to celebrate Asian culture. While we embrace everyone, no matter your background, race, culture or belief, it is important to us that the art and creations come from a team that understands and has lived through Asian experiences. Take a look at the video to see the development of the art!
We are launching on the 16th of September EST, with presale starting 12th of September to 15th of September EST.
