We’re a team of seasoned professionals, each with decades of experience from the movies, comics and technology industries.
We came together in 2022 to create a new IP independent of major studios or traditional media gatekeepers.
EON RIFT will incorporate digital, comic books, digital collectibles, video games, phygital collectibles, a trading card game and merchandise.
We plan on testing and releasing multiple smaller mini-games to test gameplay, get feedback from our community and give people something fun to play while the full game is being developed.
Our vision for the project, beyond your PFP, is to let you customize your character however you like.
Ultimately, our roadmap calls for dropping your character as you've designed them into our world and games.
New drops of weapons, gear, clothing, etc. will let you keep your avatars fresh - swap out or sell whatever you like.
These are only a few of the different species that will populate EON RIFT!
Our comics are drawn by the awesome team at COMBO-BREAK, who also worked on the hit trading card game Marvel SNAP!
Our cover artist for the first issue of the EON RIFT comic is the amazing JONBOY MEYERS

We're planning on releasing limited-edition physical collectibles, linked to the blockchain. Both in the form of scenes taken from our comics, as well as your individual 3D PFPs and digital collectibles.
