Inworld Origins

From the Academy Award winning creator best known for his work on the The Matrix trilogy and The Matrix Awakens, comes a first-of-its kind demo, featuring an ensemble cast of NPCs powered by Inworld AI. Origins allows players to take on the role of a detective in a neo-noir world based on the anime, Metropolis. Using microphones, players are tasked with questioning witnesses, uncovering the narrative, and cracking the case. Coming to Steam Next Fest this June 2023.

Despite significant upgrades in video game motion capture, graphics rendering, animation, and modeling, the tech that powers NPCs has remained stagnant. Origins is a technical demo that shows how advanced NPC behavior and dialogue driven by artificial intelligence could become a feature in all games. Video games have historically relied on scripted responses and dialogue trees, but with AI, NPCs can be more responsive and dynamic, leading to more immersive and personalized gaming experiences.

Inworld is a developer platform for creating AI characters that emphasizes personality, context, and relationships. Our platform is purpose-built for gaming with real-time performance in mind.

Origins will be available to play during Steam Next Fest. In the meantime, learn more about the project in our blog post and behind-the-scenes video.
