Dookey Dash: Unclogged Unveils $1M Prize Pool For Free To Play Launch

If you’re familiar with the world of NFTs, chances are you’ve heard of the highly popular Bored Ape Yacht Club and their hit game, Dookey Dash. The game took the NFT world by storm last year with its limited release that restricted gameplay to NFT owners only. But now, it’s set to make a comeback this spring with a free-to-play version titled “Unclogged” – and it’s bringing some exciting new features along for the ride.

The original version of Dookey Dash required players to own a specific NFT in order to play, which limited its audience. However, the upcoming “Unclogged” version is set to target a wider audience by eliminating the NFT requirement for gameplay. This move has been met with both excitement and skepticism from fans and critics alike, making it worth taking a closer look at the evolution of this beloved game.

The Original Dookey Dash: A Game for NFT Owners Only

Dookey Dash was first released in 2021 as an “endless runner” game where players navigate a vehicle through sewer obstacles, aiming to achieve the highest score on the global leaderboard. 

However, what set this game apart from others was its exclusive access – it could only be played by owners of certain NFTs. These included Bored Apes and Mutant Apes, as well as other specific NFTs like the Bored Ape Kennel Club, HV-MTL, and Otherside Kodas.

The limited access to the game created a frenzy among NFT collectors, with many purchasing these exclusive tokens just to gain entry to Dookey Dash. The demand for these NFTs skyrocketed, with one professional Fortnite player even selling his prize NFT for a whopping $1.63 million worth of Ethereum.

The Evolution: “Unclogged” – A Free-to-Play Version

Fast forward to this spring, and Dookey Dash is making a comeback with “Unclogged” – a free-to-play version of the game that eliminates the NFT requirement for gameplay. This move by Yuga Labs, the creators of Dookey Dash, is aimed at attracting a wider audience and making the game more accessible to all.

But don’t worry, NFT owners won’t be left out in the cold. Yuga Labs has announced that specific NFT owners, including Bored Apes and Mutant Apes, will still receive certain benefits within the game. This includes a 72-hour early access period starting March 6 for 10,000 players, where the top scorer will be awarded a coveted Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT.

Collaborations and Customization: What to Expect from “Unclogged”?

In addition to eliminating the NFT requirement for gameplay, “Unclogged” is set to bring some exciting new features and collaborations. The game is being developed in collaboration with crypto gaming startup Faraway and will allow users to create and sell their own 3D assets within the game.

This adds a whole new layer of interactivity and customization for players, making it more than just a simple endless runner game. And speaking of collaborations, “Unclogged” is set to feature brand collaborations, including an appearance by the iconic ape mascot from the popular streetwear brand Bape. This follows a previous clothing collaboration between the companies and is sure to bring even more hype to the game.

The Future of Dookey Dash: A Game Changer for NFT Gaming?

As the release of “Unclogged” draws closer, it’s clear that Dookey Dash is evolving into much more than just a hit game for NFT owners. With its potential to attract a wider audience and offer new features like customization and collaborations, it could very well be a game changer for the world of NFT gaming.

Only time will tell if “Unclogged” will live up to the success of its predecessor, but one thing is for sure – Dookey Dash and the Bored Ape Yacht Club have once again captured the attention of NFT enthusiasts everywhere. So mark your calendars for March 6 and get ready to join in on the fun with “Dookey Dash: Unclogged” – the evolution of Bored Ape Yacht Club’s hit game.
