Introducing Personalized Player Profiles
Fantastical worlds and captivating narratives create opportunities for deep immersion. Yet, the Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) populating these game worlds often fall short. Their interactions with players remain impersonal with NPCs behaving exactly the same towards all players – no matter what role they’re playing in the game.
What if that didn’t need to be the case? What if NPCs could instead tailor their conversations to each individual player? This is exactly the gaming environment that Inworld's player profile feature is looking to create.
Inworld's Personalized Player Profiles Feature
Inworld’s Player Profile feature is set to add unprecedented personalization to NPC interactions. Players can include details such as their name, age group, role, gender, and additional custom fields that developers can incorporate into the game. These details could include critically important things like their home kingdom in a fantasy world to relatively trivial things like their favorite pizza toppings in a social game or their opinion on the ruler of a sci-fi universe.
This information allows NPCs to engage with players in more personalized conversations, significantly amplifying the believability of the game world and player immersion. This personalization also directly influences gameplay by impacting how NPCs react to player actions and decisions.
