The developer platform for AI characters

Get a fully integrated platform for AI characters that goes beyond large language models (LLMs) – and adds configurable safety, knowledge, memory, narrative controls, multimodality, and more.

Craft characters with distinct personalities and contextual awareness that stay in-world or on brand. Seamlessly integrate into real-time applications, with optimization for scale and performance built-in.

Powering AI characters in experiences from:

Integrations available for:

Real-Time Generative AI

Optimized for performance and scale

Every millisecond counts in real-time experiences. Built by the team behind Dialogflow (Google’s conversational AI platform used by millions of developers), Inworld is production-ready and designed to scale instantly without any additional configuration.

Character Engine

Power expression with multimodal AI

Put personality at the center of your AI to enable increased immersion and connection. Distinct character personalities can be configured in minutes using natural language and simple controls.

AI characters express personalities through multimodal AI designed to mimic the full range of human communication, both verbal and non-verbal – including voice, gestures, expressions, and actions.


Create distinct personalities for your AI characters by describing them in natural language


Characters express emotion in response to users. Emotions can be mapped to animations, goals, and triggers.

Real-Time Voices

Use built-in voices for minimal latency or integrate third-party services like Eleven Labs.

Goals & Actions

Use client-defined triggers or activate goals through intent recognition or motivations.

Contextual Mesh

Stay in-world or on-brand

Context matters when it comes to interactions with AI. An e-commerce business and AAA game need different models.

Set parameters for content and safety mechanisms, custom knowledge, and narrative controls to give each interaction a personalized context that makes sense for your user and experience.


Add shared lore and personal knowledge characters should have about their worlds, contexts, and backgrounds.

Configurable Safety

Conversational safety varies by use case, determine yourself what topics characters are able to discuss.

Player Profiles

Add personalized interactions with characters that can remember players, relationships, and context.

4th Wall

Characters only draw from elements and knowledge that exist in their worlds, avoiding hallucinations that break immersion.

APIs & Integrations

Ship faster with powerful and easy-to-use integrations

Build once and deploy everywhere with integrations for common game engines and applications. We obsess over the details so you can focus on delivering the best user experience and storytelling.

"Characters in games and other digital experiences tend to be static, working from a set of lines and responses. But the future of games could be more responsive, generative and of course AI-powered — something Inworld AI is attempting to enable by letting developers create rich, interactive characters as simply as they might tell another AI to draw a bird."

Devin Coldewey

Writer at TechCrunch

“I'm excited to see Inworld AI characters bring more life and personality to games. Once you have characters that can remember you, your interactions, and express nuanced emotion, the possibilities for more immersive experiences are endless.”

Nate Mitchell

Co-Founder of Oculus

CEO of Mountaintop Studios

"Inworld AI is powerfully pushing forward the types of experiences possible within interactive worlds like cinema and games by enabling creators to develop intelligent characters who naturally interact, emotionally behave, intuitively learn and individually express who they are in ways we’ve never seen."

"For nearly a century, Disney has been at the forefront of leveraging technology to build the entertainment experiences of the future. With our newest class of companies, we look forward to furthering our commitment and continuing to bring magical experiences to Disney audiences and guests for the next 100 years."

Bonnie Rosen

General Manager of Disney Accelerator

"Believable NPCs with unique personalities, memories, and experiences are really important to storytelling and roleplaying in games. With Inworld, you can easily create these virtual characters, making true world-building even more accessible to devs and player creators alike."

Matt Schembari

CEO of Lightforge Games

"Adding the complexities of the human mind to virtual characters is going to bring disruptive changes to almost every aspect of our life, especially the future education, which I care about the most. I can’t imagine a better team to be working on this - they are the veterans of the ML and AI space."
