On September 26, 2023, Otherside: Legends of the Mara officially launched, opening up a new and exciting gaming experience. This launch offers Deed owners a unique opportunity to embark on a thrilling journey involving hatching Maras, farming valuable resources, and confronting formidable creatures, all while having the chance to collect mintable items.
Exploring the Legends of the Mara Universe
Created by Yuga Labs, the same innovative minds behind the Bored Apes Yacht Club, Otherside: Legends of the Mara brings a new and exciting gaming experience. Legends of the Mara introduces players to a captivating “collection-based 2D strategy game” within the expansive Otherside metaverse. While Otherside itself is a sprawling 3D gaming universe, Legends of the Mara focuses on evolving egg-like NFTs, offering a unique way to play the game.
One of the intriguing aspects of Legends of the Mara is its connection to the Otherdeed land plots. These virtual lands, initially distributed as NFTs, are now home to small, bipedal creatures known as Kodas. What sets this universe apart is that Kodas are not permanently tied to the land they inhabit, adding an element of flexibility and surprise to the game.
Unveiling the Gameplay
In Legends of the Mara, players assume the role of caretakers of these Kodas and have the opportunity to evolve them into more formidable beings known as Kodamaras. This evolution process is accompanied by the task of harvesting a resource known as “sediment” and defending against malevolent forces that threaten the sanctity of Otherdeed lands.
What’s particularly enticing for Deed owners is that all Otherdeed NFT land holders will be eligible to claim a Vessel, regardless of whether they currently possess a Koda on their land plot. These Vessels have the potential to transform into Mara characters and, under specific conditions and catalysts, further evolve into Kodamaras. While these characters are valuable assets for protecting the Otherside universe, it’s important to note that they won’t match the sheer power of the original Kodas.
Yuga Labs has promised that the Legends of the Mara experience will continue to evolve in the months to come, ensuring that players are consistently engaged and rewarded. Otherdeed NFT holders can look forward to a variety of incentives and benefits as they dive deeper into the game.
Yuga Labs, known for their innovative approach to the NFT space, has created a game that offers a perfect blend of strategy, adventure, and collectibility. As Deed owners embark on their Mara-hatching journeys, it’s clear that the Otherside metaverse is expanding and waiting to be explored by gamers and collectors alike.
