Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) continues to deliver value to its holders in new ways. This time, they are introducing a new web-based, mini-game called Dooky Dash. To play the game, you need to get a Sewer Pass. To do so holders of BAYC or Mutant Ape Yacht Club can claim their own Sewer Passes from January 17 to February 8. These passes are tradeable, so players who don't own a BAYC or MAYC will be able to purchase one from the secondary market. The Sewer Passes have different levels, depending on the type of Bored Ape a player owns, with some levels offering bonuses to the player's score in the game. Those who hold a Bored Ape or Mutant Ape and also a BAYC Doggo will receive higher tier passes. The Sewer Pass is promised to also open the door to potential future adventures in the Ape-verse!
Dooky Dash is an “endless runner”-style game that can be played within a web browser. It challenges players to progress as far as they can through a cartoonish sewer environment while picking up items, all without crashing and failing. The game scores are based on the length of the run, the number of fragments from other universes acquired, and the number of obstacles destroyed. The highest score achieved in the game affects the results of the mint, and the highest score of all players receives the “Key”. Players will be able to buy in-game power-ups with APE coins.
The game will be playable between January 18 and February 8, and as long as a Sewer Pass is used to play the game at least once, it will be “eligible to transform into something new”. Scores and validation status are tied to the wallet, so players cannot buy their way to a better mint—they will have to actually play the game.
As a result of the announcement of Dooky Dash, sales for BAYC NFTs and associated projects have surged. Mutant Ape NFTs are up 124% in sales volume over the past 24 hours to $4.2 million, while BAYC NFT sales have jumped 171% in that span to nearly $3.5 million. Bored Ape Kennel Club NFTs, which will also have a role in Dooky Dash, have seen a 134% sales spike to over $3.3 million.
BAYC has stated that they will continue to evolve throughout 2023 as they expand on their lore and universe. For more details on Dooky Dash and the Sewer Passes, visit the official Yuga Labs news blog.
