The number of alphas and betas available in the web3 gaming world continue to grow. And while the Bored Apes maintain their spot as top dog among NFT collections, Gods Unchained shows us that web3 games will be making more of a name for themselves this year! Read on for more about the most active games and top NFT collections by trade volume, as well as other gaming related news from this past week!
Things continue to heat up in the world of web3 gaming. We have open alpha/beta playtests from The Harvest and Continuum World as well as ongoing events from Mojo Melee, Champions Ascension, and others.
Gala Games dropped a roadmap with promises of product-specific roadmaps to follow. The Dooky Dash event still remains open, while Sewer Passes and other Bored Ape NFT collections continuing to dominate the charts.
Our chart of most active games stays mostly the same, but Gods Unchained does manage to creep back into the top 10 in regards to NFT sales volume. If they can continue growing their playerbase, Gods Unchained might become the biggest gaming powerhouse on the blockchains!

The weekly, top NFT, trading charts tend to fluctuate a lot more than the active gaming charts. And aside from the continual presence of the Bored Ape suite of NFT collections, and CryptoPunks, the other entrants in the top 10 seem to come and go.
And so this week we say farewell to several projects and hello to Doodles V4 and Checks V4. We also welcome Azuki back to the charts, as well as Gods Unchained, who dropped off for several weeks.
As the rumored date of a second trip to the Otherside approaches (sometime in March), purchases for Otherdeeds kicked up a notch this week, moving it to the top spot with nearly $19 million in sales!
