Yuga Labs, the creators of the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT ecosystem, have announced a new expansion that combines the world of NFTs with a skill-based game. The unique drop, called the Sewer Pass, will be available for free to existing BAYC/Mutant Ape Yacht Club holders starting on January 17th. These tokens serve as the key to unlocking a game called Dookey Dash, which opens for gameplay on January 18th.
Dookey Dash is open to anyone who holds a Sewer Pass, including those purchased on the secondary marketplace. Players will have the opportunity to play the game an unlimited number of times, with the goal of achieving a score higher than 0 to validate their Sewer Passes and “transform them into a mysterious power source.” The results of this unique process will be revealed on February 15th when Dookey Dash gameplay ends.
According to BAYC, “Sewer Pass holders will compete for the highest score and earn their new power source.” The highest single-run score on a specific Sewer Pass and accompanying wallet will determine what the mysterious power source is. The team has also hinted that whatever is revealed will “evolve throughout 2023” and will be used in future “battles.”
This new NFT mint is part of Yuga’s broader plans to develop an interoperable metaverse experience called “The Otherside.” The platform will allow players to own land and turn their existing NFTs into playable characters. “All of the projects that we have are deeply important to us,” says Wylie Aronow, one of the co-founders of Yuga Labs. According to the roadmap for Yuga Labs’ latest project, NFTs created from this month-long experiment will be part of a narrative experience called “Chapter 1” in the future.
