AlterVerse Debuts Conversational Artificial Intelligence NPCs in Gaming

With further applications in ecommerce, CEO Scot Kinney says, ‘Conversational NPCs represent a new intersection of AI, Web3, and immersive technologies’

Backed by Binance Labs and Polygon Ventures, world and game creation platform AlterVerse has launched conversational AI companions as part of its ongoing Sky City Beta sessions.

The new feature is powered by Convai and is designed to be a live integration that uses AI to onboard new players. These players can learn and level up their skills by conversing with an in-game AI NPC.

This integration will also enable brands to set up a storefront in AlterVerse using their own AI shopkeeper. Having knowledge of the partner’s products, the shopkeeper NPCs can communicate with players to provide customer service, drive sales and more.

Scot Kinney, CEO of AlterVerse said, “Conversational NPCs represent a new intersection of AI, Web3, and immersive technologies, supporting an entirely new digital experience while transforming the way brands interact and build loyalty with their customers online.”

Engage in realistic conversations

The game creation platform also aims to make NFT AI companions, to enable holders to access it from anywhere and at any time. These NFT companions can provide individuals with personalised guidance that improves and evolves with interactions.

AlterVerse has so far secured more than 100 partnerships, including RIOT Energy, Scuti, Razor Scooters, and

Steve Jakobsen, co-founder of Riot Energy said, “The deployment of AI Shopkeepers in our digital storefront will allow us to keep pace with how the next-generation consumer wants to do business online. This venture is more than just a technological innovation; it marks the dawn of a new era in online business operations, one where interactive AI is the norm rather than the exception.”

Players will have the opportunity to utilise AlterVerse’s no-code game creator to build personalised games and worlds. Alongside gaining a competitive advantage in advanced gameplay, they can also create and incorporate their own AI companions for other users to engage with.

AlterVerse’s latest advancement comes after a successful funding round led by Binance Labs and Polygon Ventures, along with notable contributors such as Labs, Baselayer Capital, and EnjinStarter. The project is being incubated by Altcoin Buzz Labs.
