The makers of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs, Yuga Labs, is expanding its non-fungible token ecosystem with a free mint and skill-based game. The unique drop involves multiple steps. It begins on January 17 with a free mint for existing BAYC and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) holders called Sewer Passes.
Through the tokens, holders can unlock a skill-based game called Dookey Dash – with gameplay on January 18 and ending on February 15. The game can be played by anyone who holds a Sewer Pass. They will be able to play the game unlimited times. The players have to score higher than 0 to validate their Sewer Passes and transform them into a mysterious power source.
BAYC said Sewer Pass holders will compete for the highest score and earn their new power source. It stated that the highest single-run score on the specific Sewer Pass and accompanying wallet that achieved the run will determine what it reveals. The studio said that whatever is revealed will evolve through 2023 and will be utilized in future battles. The new NFT mint called “The Trial of Jimmy the Monkey” is part and parcel of Yuga Lab’s broader plans to develop an interoperable metaverse experience called “The Outside”. Players can own their land and turn their existing NFTs into playable characters.
It should be noted that non-fungible tokens created from the month-long experiment will be part of a narrative experience called “Chapter 1” at a later date.
