Niantic is readying to launch Peridot, its next AR game, in specific areas soon To gain access to the game, interested players may visit Peridot's website and pre-register. https://youtu.be/VJhJ6FA_77c Creators of Pokémon Go are launching their own original digital pet as a follow-up to the game's success. Niantic, the maker of Pokémon Go, is developing its own distinct digital pet. On Wednesday, Niantic revealed Peridot, a new mobile game that focuses on caring for, raising, and breeding unique digital creatures rather than catching them all. In Peridot, players will be able to raise magical creatures known as Peridots that feel real. Ziah Fogel, the game's senior producer, said as much during a press briefing earlier this week. Each Peridot is "100 percent unique and 100 percent yours," according to Niantic, with different visual characteristics, personality traits, interests and dislikes, and abilities. Players will nurture Peridots from birth to adulthood before breeding them at nests to produce several generations of their virtual pets; new discoveries may be made along the way. Peridot Peridots may be spherical, oblong, striped, spotted, or polka-dotted in various hues and patterns. They're designed after real-world archetypes, according to Niantic, which combines hand-crafted assets with procedural generation; some Peridots will have features inspired by unicorns or peacocks while others will resemble rabbits or clownfish. The meanings of Peridot's keywords are wide-ranging, including "jester," "glitter," "metallic," and (the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery) kintsugi. Regardless of their meaning, Peridots will breed with one another and, using a method inspired by real-world DNA, produce a new Period. Peridot, like Pokémon Go, Ingress, Pikmin Bloom, and other Niantic augmented reality games, will focus on walking around and seeing new things in the real world. It's also important to keep your Peridot happy and healthy on a daily basis. Players will have to feed, play with, and care for their virtual pets. Peridots will have "desires," which may lead to difficulties like taking them for walks, offering them a specific in-the-wild dish, or visiting a nearby highlight attraction. Peridot In camera-based augmented reality, Peridot will be represented by Niantic's Lightship technology. That AR tech helps Peridots “recognize different real-world surfaces such as dirt, sand, water, grass, and foliage,” Niantic says, from which your pet can forage different types of food. Of course, snapping cute photos of your pet Peridot is also a major draw of playing in AR. According to Niantic, players will be able to easily share their Peridot pics on social media, directly from the game. Niantic has said it will begin to publicly launch Peridot in the selected market in April when the game is expected to debut on Apple's App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android.
