The Netflix Show
The avatars are based on the French—American adult animated series “Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix,” produced by Ubisoft Film & Television, Bobbypills, and Bootleg Universe.
The show is inspired by the 2013 video game “Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon” and includes a combination of elements and characters from several Ubisoft franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell.
Ubisoft first unveiled the show in October 2019, and Netflix released it in October 2023.
The experience is transporting the users into 1992 as citizens of Eden.
Per the HeyMint platform website, this is an original adventure filled with mystery, hacking, and stealth.
