Bring a custom avatar with you across multiple games and apps on the SideQuest platform.
Ready Player Me, a free-to-use 3D avatar creator, today announced a new partnership with VR discoverability platform SideQuest that will allow you to bring a custom virtual avatar with you across multiple games and apps, further expanding the VR metaverse.
In order to get started, head to sidequest.com and sign up for a free profile. Next, select the SideQuest logo located in the upper-right corner of the window and choose the “Edit Avatar” option in the drop-down menu. From here, select “Create a New Avatar” to begin designing your own personal avatar.
Similar to the original readyplayer.me experience, the SideQuest version allows you to automatically generate a digital representation of yourself by taking a selfie. Of course, you’re then free to manually customize various aspects of your avatar, including hair, skin tone, and clothing.
“Working with Ready Player Me will not only help bring SideQuest players into the metaverse, but also allow for a highly customisable form of self expression for all our community,” said SideQuest CEO Shane Harris. “The VR space is rapidly becoming the creative outlet for developers and players alike to discover, experiment and play, and here at SideQuest we couldn’t be happier to be a driving force behind that. We have so many exciting plans for our work with Ready Player Me, and look forward to supporting our community with integration in the future.”
This past July, Ready Player Me launched a cross-game VR avatar hub alongside an additional 260 apps. Today’s announcement further expands the list of compatible software by introducing SideQuest’s massive catalog of Quest games.
“SideQuest is empowering smaller developers to build VR games and share them with the platform’s vast community of players,” addedWolf3D CEO Timmu Tõke. “Our partnership is a big step in making the dream of the open metaverse a reality. We will work together to connect hundreds of the virtual worlds available on SideQuest and let anyone travel between them with their Ready Player Me avatars.”
