Omnimorphs is a generative NFT collectible project of 10.000 unique, digitally hand-drawn avatars immortalized on the Ethereum blockchain.
Digital artist Daniel Taylor – who worked with significant clients like Disney, Adobe, Mondo, and Playboy – is our core team member, who created the mysterious world of the dark mimicking creatures.
What makes the Omnimorphs project unique?
On the artistic level, we aimed to create a PFP project that is a bridge between the more traditional, 1/1 NFT art world and the weird universe of collectibles.
We wanted to create something genuinely different than the space has never seen before. Don’t get us wrong; we love all the monkey species out there. We just wanted to distinguish our project from others. From the start, the feedback from the community was that they’re in the project for the art primarily, as it is much higher quality than perhaps that of 95% of other generative PFP projects out there.
We also aim to become a hub for artists, art lovers, and escapists to form an awesome community. We already see a lot of this happening on our Discord channel and across our socials. One example is the success of our last Halloween art contest, where we shortlisted over 30 works from different aspiring and more established artists from all over the NFT space.
We are also excited about creating experimental, new mechanics and social games like the upcoming OmniFusion mechanic.
IT’S TIME TO GET EXCITED 🔥
Here is the first look of our new playable avatars within @TheSandboxGame!
We are honored to work w/ @polygonalmind to bring Omnimorphs to life!

What is the OmniFusion mechanic?
OmniFusion is a utility that will allow the holders to merge two Omnimorphs into one to customize the appearance and rarity of their avatar by transferring traits of one Omnimorph onto the other.
The purpose of this utility is to create artworks that their owners love and feel connected to. There is also a social game aspect, as the rarity of the whole collection will change.
A fun way to look at it is that OmniFusion is, in a way, an opportunity for our holders to collaborate with our artist Daniel.
We will also raffle 10 “resurrected” Omnimorphs amongst holders who execute the first 500 fusion transactions.
Fusion is especially interesting since the trait system for Omnimorphs relies heavily on set mechanics, therefore high rarity tokens can be created from relatively basic ones.
You can test out the feature here:
The Fusion event will start on 17 December and will go on for an extended period (likely 2-3 months).
What other areas are you focusing on with your project?
The main one of our current areas of focus is the art and how to establish our project in the more traditional art world. We’re actively seeking out galleries with different value propositions to showcase our artworks. There are already some great things cooking on this front.
We are also constantly trying to create meaningful partnerships in the space with projects and artists that we feel match our style and vision.
We feel there are also immense opportunities on the lore front for Omnimorphs. This was the part of the project that was one of the most exciting for our community members – and as huge sci-fi geeks, for us as well!
We want to formulate a narrative for Omnimorphs that’s worthy of a standalone Netflix anime! Ok, maybe that won’t happen, but it doesn’t hurt to dream big! We are actively working on expanding the Omnimorphs fictional universe. Our recent OmniTotems claimable NFT drop is a good example of this. Totems have story fragments attached to the NFTs that, put together, create the faint outlines of an Omnimorphs mythology.
Finally, we too are very excited about the metaverse! We are proud to have been included in the Sandbox Premium Partnership program, which opens extremely exciting opportunities for the project!
What is your plan within the Sandbox?
We will strive to create our Sandbox experiences to maximize incentives and utility – for example, limited NFT items, closed metaverse events, and many more. We will do our best to map out all the possibilities we can offer our community in the metaverse!
We are planning on building the following types of experiences on our 3×3 land:
- Community hangout for special events and conversations.
- Create a digital art gallery for Omnimorphs and our artist partners.
- Also, to gamify our stories, to live the narrative within this amazing voxel world, and earn NFT rewards.
We already released a short teaser of our characters running around in Sandbox: https://twitter.com/omnimorphs/status/1466493227998007297?s=20
Where do you see the future of Omnimorphs next year?
We aim to push our artwork and community-driven derivatives into galleries and connect the 1/1 NFT world and generative collections to show that both can co-exist and thrive within the NFT space.
We want to extend our lore to a comprehensive universe and a playable Sandbox experience.
As you may see, there are many overlapping elements between art and metaverses – we can imagine exhibitions to support our artist in the Sandbox or an actual gallery opening with voxelized 3D items for sale. The possibilities are endless, and we will always listen to our community!
