Yuga Labs, creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection, is reviving its popular Dookey Dash video game in collaboration with game studio Faraway. The original version was exclusive to BAYC NFT holders, but the reboot will be free-to-play with token rewards.
A Brief History of Dookey Dash
Dookey Dash originally launched in early 2023 as an endless runner game set in a sewer. Players controlled an ape on a vehicle trying to get the highest score possible while avoiding obstacles. The game required an NFT key only given to BAYC holders. In February 2023, pro gamer Mongraal won Dookey Dash and sold his key NFT to billionaire Adam Weitsman for 1000 ETH.
What to Expect in Dookey Dash Unclogged
The rebooted Dookey Dash Unclogged will be available on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, removing the web browser exclusivity. Unlike the original, anyone can play for free. However, BAYC, MAYC, and other Yuga NFT holders will get special token rewards, likely ApeCoin. The game appears to have new character skins, vehicles, a leaderboard system, and purchasable in-game items.
The Road Ahead
Dookey Dash Unclogged aims to attract more gamers beyond just NFT holders. With a more accessible free-to-play model and releases on multiple platforms, Yuga Labs is poised to bring its signature toilet humor to the masses. The original’s cheating issues will hopefully be resolved. We’ll see if the reboot can match the success of the original Dookey Dash when it launches later this quarter.
