Realm Metaverse Releases its Alpha Builder Tool
What is so exciting about this AR metaverse?
Realm is a mobile-first mixed reality metaverse looking to change the game by introducing new, exciting and innovative ways to interact with NFTs and avatars in the metaverse. Realm has been designed to attract more users. By allowing players to easily enter the metaverse through AR portals just with their phones.
This is unlike many metaverses that require players to have laptops or desktops with heavy computing power to just take part in a virtual event. This is a great barrier to many people and makes the metaverse inaccessible to the larger part of the population.
JP Morgan predicted that the metaverse will generate more than $1 Trillion per year by 2030. For the metaverse to gain mass adoption and reach its perceived value. It’s no secret that accessibility and usability have to be eased. And Realm seems to have come at the right time.
To add icing to the cake. Realm is promising an innovative play-to-earn augmented reality gaming model that has had the community excited for the launch. Players will be able to interact with metaverse scenes. NFTs in many ways thanks to the gamification features provided by the Realm team to creators.
One of the game-changers is their integration with Ready Playe Me. A cross-game avatar platform for the metaverse that makes wearables interoperable across different metaverses. You can generate a realistic avatar on RPM, easily import it on Realm and use it to play.
Additionally, Realm is impact-driven. The metaverse can be used in innovative ways to bridge reality with the virtual world. It helps us curb social problems like pollution and climate change.
Imagine, if a plant was planted in real life if you planted it on the metaverse. If, plastics could be cleaned on ocean floors if you cleaned plastic in Realm. Well, this is exactly what the Realm team is promising and much more. Imagine the many different ways we could use the metaverse. To create impact in our physical reality if we got more creative with Realm?
Furthermore, Realm is a play-to-earn platform. Meaning players will be able to earn $REALM tokens. When they play and interact with user-created games within the metaverse
Realm Builder Tool for Metaverse Architects
Realm enthusiasts and creators have been using the Alpha version of the Builder tool. In a closed builders’ group for a while now and this group helped a lot in identifying bugs and suggesting features while also trying out the limits of the software before the public release.
The Alpha Builder tool is now public. Download the link here.
The beta version of the Realm mobile application. Realm Mobile Application was released in April. It proves to be one of the most user-friendly metaverses to date. Easy to use and easy on your phone’s processing power as well.
As a metaverse architect who has experience in building virtual scenes on the top metaverse platforms. Decentraland, The Sandbox and Cryptovoxels, I have taken my time to interact with the Realm Builder Tool as well.
The first thing you notice when you enter the builder is the minimalistic screen with very few buttons and elements. This makes it welcoming for everyone even for new people who have never built in the metaverse before. With the in-game assets that come with the builder, you can create a fully-furnished scene within minutes.
Currently, the builder has a few bugs and missing features. Like the ability to import custom assets. We expect an Alpha version with all these features.
Although it has been months since Realm first launched on the Polkastarter. The team has been consistent in keeping the community active and updated with real-time updates on the development progress.
Good things take time while greater things can take even more. Realm is a huge project with great prospects, which means it requires a lot of time for the team to actualize the idea that the founders, Matthew Larby and Joban Thomas have.
Most NFT and metaverse projects end up being scams and not living up to the expectations of investors. We have still never taken the time to appreciate projects that build amidst all the noise. Delivering on their roadmap. Realm is one of them.
As a rule of thumb. . Always take your time to do research and due diligence and put your money into any project. Make sure it aligns with your investment goals.
