Adim Ink: Season 0 Edition 2
Community Updates, New Additions to the Team, Creative Developments, and Our Resource Library
Welcome to Adim Ink! Everything you never knew you needed to know about the Adimverse.
Good morning 👋! It’s been an exciting few weeks in the Adimverse.
Today, we’ll feature important updates, conversations and resources for the Adimverse community so you don’t miss a beat.
Events for the Week
Below are details on programming for the upcoming 2 weeks!
Adim Community Hangout Thursday 9/1 @ 1pm PT / 4pm ET – Join us for our weekly Community Hangout with members of our team & community.
Adim Community Hangout Tuesday 9/6 @ 6pm PT / 9pm ET.
Adim Book Club – Our community has selected Ask Iwata: Words of Wisdom from Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's Legendary CEO from our next read! The book club will begin Tuesday 9/13 @ 4pm PT / 7pm ET in the Adimverse Voice Chat with weekly sessions each Tuesday. You can get a copy of Ask Iwata here.
We have wrapped up the first phase of our very first Creator Room! As we talked about here, when we started this process, we had a few ideas about how things might go, but we have learned so much from this first experience.
Over the last few weeks, we collected 40+ retrospective survey responses and conducted 25+ user interviews. The feedback captured here will help inform product development and decisions on structures and processes for future rooms.
We will be sharing more on those learnings and next steps soon via our blog!
Onto The Next Phase for CR1…
The Adim Creative Team is finalizing written character sheets and other deliverables for the Art Department, led by Will Groebe. Will has kicked off development along with representatives from each character group to bring these characters to life.
The Adim Creative Team and Rob McElhenney have kicked off debrief sessions to start planning the next phase of development. We will be sharing more updates this week!
What To Expect Next
Prompts: The Adim Creative team will finalize selection of the top prompt responses this week. These will be presented for vote via proposal next week (week of 9/5). The top prompts will progress to the next stage of development with Rob & the Adim Team.
Proposals: We will reach out to the Beta Testing group with instructions shortly – if you expressed interest, be on the lookout for an email!
Product: We are focused on building out features to help better organize creative groups for collaboration. From enhanced profiles and creator room specs to track contributions, our priority right now is to build the features necessary to unlock member-driven creator rooms.
Upcoming Creator Rooms
What we're creating here at Adim is an evolving platform built in real time by the contributions of you — the community members. Your feedback is what guides us in this process of creating something new. In the upcoming rooms, we will be implementing the collective vision of our whole community so we can create the best experience for you. Following the amazing Creator Room 1, we've gone back to the drawing board so we can craft a structure for our next rooms that's tighter, clearer and more organized. Stay tuned, we expect to have more updates in the coming week.
