3 min readMay 22, 2023

Welcome to Devlog #76!

This week has been full of next level development as ever here at Realm — with things really picking up speed on the AI game front, as well as the deployment of mainnet Rewards V2 contracts scheduled for this week.

As per usual you can check out the founder’s AMA here:

Now, on to the dev updates:

Cast Aways

Last time we teased a behind the scenes look at the mechanics of an entirely new type of game — one in which we managed to get AI agents to move and interact with objects of their own volition and in which you can literally see their thought processes as they work together to solve a problem.

Now, as promised, we are pleased to present the 3D version! These AIs can think, talk, walk and interact with objeccts to achieve a common goal, and you can literally talk to them to get off the island together! In this ‘Cast Aways’ scenario we find ourselves cast adrift on a desert island, wondering how we got here and how we can survive. The player and the AIs must work together to craft a flotation device and escape, with some interesting conversation occuring along the way!

Whilst at a basic level the AIs are powered by OpenAI, we have done a ton of world-class work on top of this to make them able to walk around freely, interact with objects and keep them in their inventory, and behave as real people with their own character and memory whilst working together towards a common goal. As far as we know we are the first to create a game like this — pretty awesome right!

HOVR upgrades

The engines are warming up for HOVR, with feedback from testers being incorporated into 4 amazing track variations with more lasers, more powerups and more incredibly satisfying riding on your board!

Check out this awesome clip below:

HOVR is shaping up to be incredibly fun, and whilst market conditions haven’t been perfect for the launch during May, we are finalising launch plans and marketing and will be giving an update on this in due course. We hope you’re as excited as we are to play and earn in HOVR!

We hope you found these updates informative and exciting. Thank you for your continued support, and stay tuned for more updates from the Realm team!
