As Niche Gamer reports, the mode replaces all enemies in the game with NFT images from the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection, which recently beat CryptoPunks for minimal price.
Instead of shooting upstart Apes, players are supposed to take pictures to kill them and win huge amounts of money.
The concept refers to a running joke among NFT detractors called “right clickers” who argue that crypto art is actually worthless because anyone can download it for free. In essence, an NFT is just a receipt on a decentralized blockchain.
In November, a man from Australia posted all the images associated with NFT on Ethereum and Solana for free.
Earlier this month, Musk posted a meme showing a psychiatrist asking his client if he is hallucinating or imagining NFT. The richest man in the world also joked that NFTs “push the dollar.”
Players vs. NFT
The gaming community has been highly skeptical of the cryptocurrency craze, arguing that they are primarily used as a tool for speculation and money laundering at the expense of the environment, while posing a threat to digital abundance. In Internet.
Discord, a gaming-oriented chat service, was forced to abandon its plans to adopt Ethereum after facing pushback from the community.
Kyiv-based STALKER 2 developer GSC Game World dropped their NFT plans after receiving a lot of negative feedback from fans.
