The first version of Icecap is a purely contemplative experience - past our funding goal, any stretch goal met will translate into a bigger and better version of Icecap for all backers !

La première version d’Icecap est une expérience de réalité augmentée, contemplative. Avec votre soutien, nous allons financer les développements futurs et en faire un vrai jeu éducatif qui apprendra aux enfants ce qu’est l’écosystème de l’Arctique et comment le protéger !

Through Kickstarter we want to jumpstart the development of new species and game mechanics for Icecap, and purely technical features to improve the integration of Koguma in Icecap, or getting rid of the marker altogether.

Via Kickstarter, nous voulons ajouter de nouvelles espèces et mécaniques de jeu, et d'autres features purement techniques pour améliorer l'intégration de Koguma dans Icecap ou se débarrasser entièrement de son marqueur !

The team designing Icecap has extensive design and production experience in AAA video games, and Emissive in Paris is in charge of developing it.

L’équipe chargée d’Icecap à l'expérience du design et de la production de jeux vidéo AAA, et les studios d’Emissive, reconnus pour leur maîtrise de la réalité virtuelle et réalité augmentée, sont en charge du développement.

 YASUYUKI WADA

Yasuyuki Wada, aka Injan

Koguma was originally designed by papercraft artist Yasuyuki Wada. We have chosen Mr Wada for his ability to use papercraft technics first, and design shapes that integrate beautifully in natural light from the get go. CAD & 3D printing were only used to verify the functional aspect of Koguma, when turning the papercraft art piece into a piggybank.

Koguma a été créé par l’artiste et origamiste Yasuyuki Wada, que nous avons choisi pour sa capacité à concevoir des formes entièrement en pliage papier, intégrées à la lumière réelle dès le début. La CAO ou l'impression 3D n'ont été utilisées que dans un deuxième temps, pour valider l'aspect fonctionnel de Koguma, et transformer une oeuvre d'artiste en tirelire.

Edit 2/12 - issue w/ english subs popped again - we're looking for a different host to make all languages compatible ASAP

We worked directly with the manufacturers in Saint Malo to create the right mold, blend and injection method to obtain a production version as close as possible to Mr Wada's design.

Nous avons travaillé directement avec les fabricants locaux de St Malo pour créer le moule, mix et méthode d'injection pour obtenir un objet final aussi similaire que possible au design original de Mr Wada.

Iteration with different techniques including 3D printing and Laser printing, gave us a result that works with cellulose acetate, a 100% natural, biodegradable material.

Madeleine Rogers, aka Mibo

Mibo is a long time Coq En Pâte collaborator with the SOS collections, and the opportunity came to work with Coq en Pate and the IUCN, Madeleine leapt at the chance and is now in charge of designing the wildlife of Icecap, and transposing her very unique 2D artstyle to augmented reality, 3D animated creatures !

Mibo collabore depuis longtemps avec Coq En Pâte via la collection SOS, et quand l'opportunité de travailler avec CEP et l'IUCN, Madeleine a sauté sur l'occasion et est maintenant en charge de développer les animaux d'Icecap, en transposant son style unique en réalité augmentée !

Madeleine works with paper craft and storytelling, and is keen to involve children in the actual creation of papercraft animals and book reading, to educate young minds about the fascinating wildlife that we share our planet with.

Madeleine travaille avec le pliage papier, et raconte des histoires qui amènent les enfants à fabriquer eux même leurs animaux en papier et à lire ses livres, pour apprendre aux plus jeunes la fascinante vie sauvage avec laquelle nous partageons notre planète.


Koguma is made by Coq En Pâte, and Coq En Pâte has built a reputation in transparency and trackability for all its products.
Koguma is made entirely in a 10km² production radius !

Koguma est entièrement produite dans 10km², à St Malo !

100% NATURAL AND BIODEGRADABLE MATERIAL

Koguma is made in a breakthrough material, the M49, developed by industry leader Mazzucchelli 1849. M49 is a Cellulose Acetate obtained with a new upgraded formula, using raw materials from renewable sources. Cellulose Acetate is a natural polymer obtained from Cellulose, the most widely spread organic compound in nature, produced from cotton and wood- pulp fibers with and natural plasticizers.

Koguma est faite en M49, un matériau révolutionnaire développé par le leader de l'industrie Mazzucchelli 1849. Le M49 est une formule améliorée de l'Acétate de Cellulose , qui utilise un matériau brut de ressources renouvellables. L'Acétate de Cellulose est le composant organique le plus répandu dans la nature, produit à base de coton et de fibre de bois, et utilise des plastifiants naturels.

M49 has undergone exhaustive tests at a specialized European laboratory (Organic Waste System) and has been declared 100% biodegradable according to ISO 14855 standard. M49 is recyclable and can be re-worked with different technologies giving life to many other products.

Le M49 a subi des tests exhaustifs au laboratoire européen OWS et a été déclaré 100% biodégradable. Le M49 est également recyclable, et peut être retravaillé pour redonner vie à une multitude de produits.

Because Koguma is ready ! Coq En Pâte dug into its own treasure chest to bring Koguma and Icecap to production-ready stage, and secure enough raw material to meet the demand for Koguma. To advance to the next phase requires significant capital and we need your help to meet minimum order quantities so that fixed costs can be covered quickly enough, and money can be channelled into Icecap's developement as fast as possible. We've spent countless sleepless nights trying to orchestrate the coordinated launch of the physical & digital products, and couldn't be more excited about the next part of the journey. By pre-selling it on kickstarter we can raise the necessary funds to keep working on Icecap righ now, and turn it into the educational toy we want it to be !

Coqenpâte a investi pour que Koguma soit prête à produire et que la tirelire soit livrée pour Noël. Moule, matière première, logistique et première version de l’appli sont prêts. Néanmoins, pour aller plus loin, nous avons besoin de couvrir les premiers investissements et les frais fixes avec un minimum d’unités commandées. Nous pourrons aller alors immédiatement vers la version 2 de l’Icecap qui s’annonce impressionnante. Tout l’enjeu de ce financement participatif est là, plus de personnes commanderont la tirelire en prévente, plus Icecap sera perfectionnée à terme et deviendra le jeu ludo-éducatif dont nous rêvons pour apprendre à tous ce qu’est l’écosystème de l’Arctique et les moyens de le protéger.

Risks and challenges

Our pool is comprised of seasoned entrepreneurs - fashion designers, game designers, supply chain experts with more than 20 years of entrepreneurial and manufacturing experience, so rest assured that Koguma and Icecap will ship, and ship well.
We have already handled all the different types of products in the pledges at least once.

We have taken the first step, and paid for the first round of production and first version of Icecap, so the backers’ risks are minimal on that front.
We know our manufacturers very well, and will be able to ship immediately after the end of the campaign (which means you could receive your Koguma in the week following the campaign’s end !).

Kogumas are being injected as you read this, Icecap 1.0 is ready for submission.
Basically we are aiming for one thing and one thing only : shipping you the goods !
