Yuga Labs, for all intents and purposes, has already conquered the NFT space, having released such projects as the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Otherside. Now, it is looking to take on gaming as well with the announcement of a gaming mint from January 17, 2023.
This mint is tied to Dookey Dash, a skill-based game that will act as an extension of the existing NFT ecosystem.

This development was confirmed in a January 12, 2023 announcement from Yuga Labs. It states that Bored Ape and Mutant Ape Yacht Club holders will be able to mint a new asset from January 17 called Sewer Passes.
These passes grant access to Dookey Dash, which will be playable from January 18, and will remain open until February 8, 2023. There is no limit on how many times users can play the game and the goal is to score above 0 to win a prize.
The winners will be announced on February 15, after which the Sewer passes will transform.
“On February 15th, validated Sewer Passes will be eligible to transform into a mysterious new power source[…] The highest single-run score on your specific Sewer Pass and accompanying wallet that achieved the run will determine what it reveals,” Yuga Labs says.
From all indications, 2023 will be the year that the Yuga Labs ecosystem will become truly interactive.
