“For example, VR technology could allow entertainers to remotely participate in recordings of metaverse-driven shows,” Lu says.
Additionally, the integration of the Metaverse into variety shows has revolutionized the way users interact with content. In traditional variety shows, users watch finished productions and participate through real-time on-screen commentary. However, in the Metaverse, variety shows are expected to offer users a unique opportunity to participate in programming in the virtual realm. Users can also interact with virtual avatars of celebrity participants to accomplish tasks or assume non-official roles. – he also added about the playable characters in the virtual game, i.e. his NPCs.
“Furthermore, the integration of the Metaverse into variety shows will facilitate the process of commercial operations. ,” says Lu.
Additionally, there are plans to develop a full-fledged game based on Run for Time’s core gameplay. Prior to this, the engineering team had converted some gameplay elements from the mystery-solving variety show “Who’s the Murderer” into a game application called “Forest Evolutionism”.
“During the internal testing phase, within a few days more than 50% of users played for more than 10 hours, with some users playing for 30-40 hours. This is the approach,” Lu said.
Each episode of Run for Time has a segment that requires some participants to put on a VR device and step onto an omnidirectional treadmill. They navigate virtual spaces and interact with game controllers to explore and complete tasks.
