Just over a month until Beta launch!! Don’t forget to head over to our website and enter your email to sign up for Beta. If you can’t wait to get access to the Realm app, you can also sign up to be an Alpha tester to get a sneak peak at what the Beta app will look like. As usual this week we had our Weekly Founders AMA, and Realm’s CEO and COO also participated in a community AMA with a community member and one of our advisors! On Wednesday YouTuber Go Shiny Hunter released a feature video about Realm — check it out and let us know what you think on Twitter! Finally, we’ve launched a sneak peak of a super exciting upcoming partnership with Oseanworld on our socials, and we’ve gotten an amazing response from both of our communities! Stay tuned because there’s a lot more to come from our collaboration…
Now onto the dev logs!
Builder Tools in Alpha!
This week Realm has achieved a major (and highly anticipated) milestone! That’s right — we are releasing the builder tools to select Alpha testers.
The Alpha version allows builders to log in with their Realm account and create and explore as many worlds as they wish using our advanced no-code builder. This tool will be heart of the Realm ecosystem, allowing people of all skill levels to create immersive environments in a matter of minutes, not months! We can’t emphasize enough how good it feels to create and explore your own microverse in real time — you’ll just have to experience it for yourself! Below you can see a one minute long video of a realm being created in real time. Check out the effect that the builder uses to look like mountains surrounded by fog, and imagine what you will be able to create in an hour if they could make this in just 60 seconds!
If you are an Alpha tester and you want access to builder tools before the general public, you can sign up to register your interest here: https://93wj11cdeuk.typeform.com/to/lmVwRtMx
You can also check out the documentation here for a taste of how simple it is to get creating.
We can’t wait to see what our Alpha Testers build!
Last week we introduced the gold element, and now we would like to introduce iron and platinum. These are three examples of Earthly elements that you will be able to mine and collect in Realm, and in the coming weeks and months we will also begin to reveal elements native to Realm’s unique ecosystem that do not exist here on Earth. You will be able to scavenge these elements in order to fabricate rare items using Metaprints and Fabricators that will be scattered throughout the Realm universe, or you could simply mine elements and sell them off!
Iron will be a relatively common element, as it is the ferrous origin of many compounds, while platinum is the rarest of the Earthly metals, making it much harder to come by. Keep an eye out for more elements to come!
Driving Audio Systems
Realm is all about creating unique, immersive experiences, and we know that one of the best ways to set a mood is through music. For that reason, we’ve been creating an interactive audio system to accompany our driving, making sure the music matches the intensity of the race. Using Wwise, the industry standard for game audio, we’ve created a system that allows us to craft the perfect audio for any minigame depending on where a player or players are within a match.
In this audio clip above, imagine you are about to start a race in the Nitro Worlds racing realm. At first, you are waiting for the race to start, then for the first two laps you hear some game music, until you hit the final lap where the pace picks up for a pulse-raising finish, and then you get to see the results. We will continue developing this system for other minigames as well. Stay tuned to see this audio paired up with a live race!
Please remember to like, share, and comment across our social media platforms as we approach Beta — help us get the word out about Realm so everyone can dive in and build the worlds of their dreams!
