You have seen them. I’ve seen them. We have all seen these hideous NFT apes litter our social media feeds, disgusting of their smug boredom. Now, a Doom mod will allow you to take the struggle to the monkeys, tanking their worth from behind the barrel of a double-barelled digital camera.
Launched by modder Extremely.Boi on ModDB final week, NFT Doom replaces the denizens of hell with equally horrific primates pulled from the infamous Bored Ape Yacht Membership—a set of 10,000 procedurally generated apes which have come to symbolize the present state of NFT assortment.

As a substitute of taking over these beasts with shotguns and rocket launchers, the Doomguy as an alternative makes use of a handheld digital camera to screenshot these high-value chimps. It is a enjoyable prod on the NFT communite’s rising ire towards the thought of “right-clickers”, individuals who save and screenshot their overpriced footage to focus on the absurdity of the thought anybody may ever personal a jpeg. Comically giant greenback quantities are subtracted from every Ape kill, tanking their worth.
Up to now, it is the one acceptable means I’ve seen to carry NFTs into video games. However that hasn’t stopped crypto pushers from attempting to infiltrate this area. Final week, Stalker 2 confronted such robust pushback to its proposed NFT integration that its developer walked back those plans it within a day.
Ubisoft, in the meantime, continues to be very a lot full steam forward on its own uninspired Breakpoint NFTs. However as noticed by Respawn (and former Ubisoft) artist Liz Edwards, it would not appear to be there’s a lot demand for marginally totally different metallic helmets.
how are the ghost recon NFTs doing? I seemed on the 2 third occasion marketplaces the Quartz website hyperlinks and there appears to be… 15 gross sales complete? 0 within the final day on 1 website? am i studying this proper? pic.twitter.com/rWxvEW3NrhDecember 20, 2021
Hostility in direction of NFTs has been a uncommon unifying issue throughout players of all stripes, with the one assist for them coming from high-level administration and people already purchased deep into crypto. That mentioned, it is simple to see why NFT pushers are interested in this area—in spite of everything, Steam successfully primed the trade to just accept that in-game items could be worth thousands of dollars.
NFTs may properly be inevitable. However till then, why not waste few hours splattering these hideous issues towards the halls of Mars?
