Hey there, NFT enthusiasts and crypto connoisseurs! It’s time to don your virtual party hats and buckle up for a wild ride through the latest happenings at Yuga Labs. We last covered the biggest NFT company 4 months ago, but a lot has happened since then. In this rollercoaster of an update, we’ll dive into the jaw-dropping NFT floor price collapses, the exhilarating lineup of live and upcoming games, a sneak peek at the epic Apefest 2023, and of course, a grand finale in our conclusion. So, grab your banana snacks and let’s swing into action!
NFT Floors: A Collapse of Ape-tastic Proportions!
Buckle up, because the NFT world just got a dose of “Whoa, what just happened?!” with the floor prices of some major players taking a nosedive. We’re talking about the Bored Ape Yacht Club, the Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Otherside, Bored Ape Kennel Club, and the Kodas crew. It’s like a game of limbo, but instead of a stick, it’s the floor prices that are going down!
But don’t fret, fellow ape enthusiasts, this is all part of the wild ride that is the NFT market. Prices go up, prices go down, and sometimes they do the cha-cha just to keep us on our toes. It’s like a digital dance-off where the floors are the dance floors and the NFTs are the stars.
At the peak of the bull market the cheapest Bored Ape would cost you 150 ETH. At the time of writing the cheapest Ape you can purchase is around 27 ETH, with the yearly low around 22 ETH. However, if you believe in Yuga long term, the NFTs will do just fine. Right?
Games Galore: Get Ready to Level Up! 🎮
1. The Forge
Now, let’s shift our gaze from wobbly floors to solid ground—virtual gaming ground, that is! Yuga Labs isn’t just about NFTs; they’re also flexing their game development muscles. In our last Yuga update, we already discussed Dookey Dash and The Otherside 2nd trip. Today, we’ve got HV-MTL (the forge), a crafting game that’s making waves in the web3 universe. It’s like Minecraft met the blockchain, and they decided to throw a party. Craft, mine, and forge your way to glory in a game that’s as addictive as it is groundbreaking.
But let me run it back a little. Where did these Heavy Metals (HV-MTL) come from?
In Early 2023, Yuga released the game, Dookey Dash. While playing you would log a high score. Based on the highest score you got you won a HV-MTL NFT. A young gamer earned millions of dollars by selling his first-place NFT to a New York-based billionaire.
- These small robots are the Evolution 1 of its kind, and we will get to Evolution 3 at the end of the ride.
- The game The Forge is to create your Evolution 2 version. Based on your accomplishments in this game you will evolve it to the best capabilities of the HV-MTL.
- What takes us to Evolution 3? That’s a surprise only Yuga knows.
2. Legends of the Mara
But that’s not all, folks! Prepare to be swept off your feet by the enchanting world of Legends of the Mara (LOTM). It’s like they took the adventure genre, sprinkled it with blockchain magic, and created a potion that’s equal parts exhilarating and awe-inspiring.
This game will be a 2D strategy game for which you need The Otherside NFTs. We don’t know the details or rules of the game yet. All we know is that sediments and environments of Otherside deeds are important to feed the new characters called “maras”. These characters can later evolve into Koda Mara’s, who has similar capabilities as Kodas. Although Yuga clearly states Kodas will be overpowered vs the Mara’s.
The game was scheduled to release in April but got pushed back and we expect to see it go live this year.
3. Wreck League
And if you’re in the mood for some smashing good fun, WreckLeague is here to satisfy your cravings. It’s the collision of NFTs and sports, and let’s just say, chaos has never looked this appealing!
Last week Yuga dropped a brand new NFT collection for their new fighting game. The collection is called Wreck League Majestics, which contains Boxes. Each box holds 5 items you will use to build your character to use in the game. The more rare the box, the better the parts that are in them.
The game is scheduled to go live in the next 2-3 weeks and in Yuga’s tradition, you can earn Apecoin playing it.
