    Yuga’s Otherside Triumphs Over Adversity with ‘Apes Come Home’

    Yuga’s Otherside Triumphs Over Adversity with ‘Apes Come Home’

    Yesterday, Yuga Labs geared up its innovative Metaverse experience, ‘Apes Come Home’, to give Otherdeed, Apes, Kodas, Mutants, and GTag holders a taste of what to expect in future Otherside endeavors. 

    Receiving tremendous praise on X, event participants were given the opportunity to immerse themselves in a self-guided adventure, allowing them to explore and engage within the game while navigating as a 3D Ape avatar — the introduction of 10,000 unique 3D Apes represented a fresh achievement in the ecosystem’s innovation.

    A highlight of this event was the Swamp, brimming with hidden surprises in celebration of Easter. When exploring this virtual space, ‘Voyagers’ were urged to heed the light signals as they traversed the virtual landscape filled with hidden treasures, whereby everyone was on a mission to find an “escaped goat”.

    Access to the renowned Clubhouse was restricted to Apes and Mutants exclusively. The NFTs required for entry hold a substantial value, with prices starting at $76,476 (22.28700 ETH) and $13,381.35 (3.90000 ETH), making admission quite costly.

    Nevertheless, across the Otherside’s span of quests, everyone encountered several novel elements, among which the ‘KODA CAM’ stood out. Such a feature enabled players to take and share in-game snapshots, receiving praise for enabling users to share Ape-themed selfies online.

    Excitement wasn’t limited to gamers alone; even those who typically don’t play video games expressed their admiration for the Metaverse journey. One user remarked on X, “Not a gamer, but the Otherside was awesome. Took a selfie in front of the clubhouse and ran into a bunch of Apes everywhere. Well done.”

    Otherside’s Success Following Challenges

    Yuga Labs’ Otherside Metaverse, launched on April 30, 2022, quickly emerged as a hub for creativity and community. Its official announcement on April 26 led to a 40% surge in $ApeCoin value and a swift $450 million in funding, highlighting the project’s market impact and anticipation.

    However, like all good things comes a catch: Following its hype, on May 3, 2022, Otherside NFTs faced high gas fees of $150 million, exposing scalability and accessibility issues. Discussions about the project moving from Ethereum to reduce costs continue to gain momentum, especially after last month’s ‘Loot’ NFTs similarly encountered high transaction costs despite being “freebies”. 

    Since, community engagement has been emphasized through Otherside’s events like the ‘First Trip’ on July 16, 2022, and the ‘Second Trip’ on March 25, 2023, providing immersive experiences to Otherdeed NFT holders and emphasizing storytelling.

    In September 2023, the Beta launch of the Otherside’s anticipated 2D strategy game ‘Legends of the Mara’ (LoTM) was similarly met with excitement. Though, it soon faced execution challenges, such as issues with the ‘Shattered Defense’ game mode and ‘Hatching’ process, leaving some members community feeling let down. 

    The Otherside then unveiled its ‘Third Trip’ trailer in January this year, which was received with a mixed bag of reviews, prompting the release of a “remastered” version. 

    In a bid to boost its Metaverse initiative, Yuga Labs recently acquired PROOF on February 17, 2024, to add the collective’s prized OG NFT collectibles, including Moonbirds, to its ecosystem. Following this merger, Moonbirds saw a remarkable 80% increase in value.

    Just last week, the NFT project also welcomed back its co-founder Greg Solano as CEO. He is said to “unshackle the BAYC team” with ambitious novelty and growth plans. 

    Regardless of past woes, Yuga continues to hold its head up high and thrive, thanks to its dedicated team and community support powering its Metaverse. Apes Come Home highlights the Otherside’s creativity, engagement, and problem-solving, hinting at the likelihood of more problem-free and well-received ventures ahead.
