Yuga Labs’ NFT And Metaverse Journey

Established in 2021, Yuga Labs is home to some of the most popular NFT collections, including Bored Ape Kennel Club, Koda, Twelve Fold, Sewer Pass,  Mutant Ape Yacht Club and the flagship NFT Bored Ape Yacht Club. The digital asset firm also holds intellectual properties for Meebits and CryptoPunks NFT collections.

The digital asset firm started offering a metaverse experience sometime in mid-2022. At the time, Yuga Labs launched Otherside, a 3D metaverse that appears to offer a gaming format for Bored Ape NFT holders, in partnership with Animoca Brands to allow participants to interact using avatars.

The Otherside metaverse project is ultimately an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) connected to the BAYC ecosystem. The NFT game allows players to own the land in the virtual world while transforming their NFTs into playable characters.

Since its inception, Otherside has launched several metaverse journeys. Earlier last year, Yuga Labs launched Dookey Dash, an interactive skill-based NFT minting game where players compete to get the highest score in order to win potentially valuable rewards.

In September 2023, the Bored Ape Yacht Club creator announced the official launching of its Legends of the Mara (LotM) game experience, granting Otherdeed virtual land NFT holders a new NFT, another taste of the broader Otherside metaverse. Yuga Labs is set to launch another metaverse experience, “Ape Come Home”, this February 2024.
