“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.
The Nymphs were created by a team of industry professionals and close friends. They started the company Into the Unknown which is meant to tackle unique projects. To explore strange beautiful worlds and share the wonders of them. The company has been involved in almost every facet of the fantasy hobby world. The heave created novels, designed board games, video games and so on.
In spite of being newbies to Kickstarter, Into the Unknown launched their Nymphs project in November of 2017 and was able to be fully funded in a month, raising over $32,000. The response to their nymphs was greater than they expected. Along the way they were able to release more nymphs, and have an interview available to backers of the artist about his inspiration, stories and design. After the funding of their project they went on to release more Nymphs.
The Nymphs are a collection of fantasy pin up models. They contain nude or partially nude cards of nymphs. Each box contains a 32mm resin miniature, each of the nymphs has a unique role and backstory. The resin figures come with a scenic base, an art print and a hand-numbered authenticity note, everything enclosed in hand-stamped craft box. The Nymphs were inspired by greek painting and sculptures. The artists made sure to choose from varied natural beauty types over photoshopped magazine cover artificial beauty.
