Build AI characters in minutes

Use natural language prompts and simple controls to configure your character’s personality. Take things deeper by describing your character’s backstory, motivations, memories, base of knowledge, speaking style, and voice.

Powering everything behind the scenes is Inworld Engine: 20 machine learning and character AI models that are designed to mimic human gestures, speech, safety, emotion, and memory.

Playtest

Make your characters more real

Just like characters from stories you know and love, Inworld characters don’t start out fully formed. Refine them by jumping straight into a conversation through studio chat or in VR with our Oculus application.

Share

Take your characters into new worlds

Once your characters are ready to make people laugh, smile, and maybe even cry, it’s time to deploy.

AI characters can be deployed into games and virtual worlds using comprehensive packages for common engines like Unity and Unreal. A Node.js SDK is also available.

"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."

“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.”

"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."

"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

"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."

Creating with AI

Personalized Interactions

With a huge range of facial expressions, language models, and emotional reactions, no two interactions are ever the same.

Cast the audience into the story

Your characters’ interactive script responds to players’ actions and inputs, making your users co-creators of whatever comes next.

Shorter dev cycles

Generative AI offers limitless possibilities without the need to script every interaction. Focus on giving your characters a rich inner life and we’ll do the rest.

Real Connection

Research shows that online relationships can be as meaningful as those formed in real life. Feelings evoke stronger responses, resulting in deeper immersion and connection to your experience.

Emotional appeal

Feelings evoke stronger responses, resulting in deeper immersion and connection to your experience.
