Devlog #41 — Live Audio, Payments & ProcGen
Welcome to another Devlog! Behind the scenes and out of the public eye the team have been working on 3 incredibly cool experiences that aren’t ready to see the light of day yet — we cant wait to share these in the coming weeks. Nevertheless we’ve still got some highly impactful developments that will shape payments and live events in the metaverse to share this week.
As ever, you can listen back to this week’s Founders AMA here.
Live Audio Streams and Events
Realm has some extremely cool live metaverse events in the pipeline and have been working on a system to stream audio live into any Realm in preparation.
This will ultimately allow artists, projects, musicians and more to broadcast into the Metropolis or any other Realm and host events, be it a DJ set or live podcast. In this demo we are using Discord as the host platform for a live discussion and sending this directly into Realm! We believe that allowing people to use either Twitter Spaces, Discord or even Zoom as the platform where participants can talk is the most flexible route for everyone to run awesome events for their communities.
In App Payments
We’ve been focussing heavily on in-app monetisation and play to earn mechanics, both incredibly important developments in order to close the loop of the Realm economy. Here we are demonstrating in-app payments using Google Pay and Apple Pay to buy in-app coins to be used to purchase items and experiences. Please note that prices are indicative for testing purposes.
Procedural Building Update
Following on from last week, here’s a video of the current iteration of procedural generation in action. As we mentioned these early versions will be refined and made more granular in time, however the current results are very encouraging and demonstrate that the marching cubes approach is both fast and versatile at creating multi-surface terrain in both islands and continuous land masses. We’ve all been super inspired by the developments in AI image generation such as Midjourney, Dall-E2, and are looking at ways to utilise these in the metaverse!
REALM is a mobile-first, Play2Own, impact-driven metaverse with the Beta app live on iOS and Android. With its mission to empower everyone to thrive from metaverse experiences and create positive impact in the real world, REALM donates 1/3 of its profits to sustainability projects.
REALM users are rewarded as they engage with the platform: 1/3 of the profits go to the token staking community. The native REALM builder tool allows anyone, with no coding experience, to build personalised microverses, tell their story, and trade NTFs on the REALM Marketplace. Creators and brands can bring to life unique music, art, games, and anything else they can imagine into their realms.
