Parallel Studios Unveils AI-Powered Game “Colony” on Solana Blockchain, Promising Boundaries-Pushing Experience

Parallel Studios, renowned for their Ethereum (ETH) NFT game, Parallel, is making waves in the blockchain gaming space with their latest project, Colony, built on the Solana (SOL) blockchain.

The upcoming survival simulation crypto game is set to revolutionize the industry with its integration of artificial intelligence (AI), aiming to push boundaries in blockchain, gaming, and general-purpose contexts. In a white paper published on March 14, Parallel Studios emphasized that Colony represents a pioneering endeavor in incorporating continuous learning capabilities into gaming, leveraging AI avatar architecture to imbue characters with unique personalities and worldviews.

At the core of Colony’s innovation lies the introduction of autonomous AI-powered agents that evolve and make independent decisions. Players kickstart their agents by defining initial personality traits through a series of questions. However, the agents autonomously develop their goals and behaviors over time, creating a dynamic and unpredictable gaming experience.

Notably, players must own an NFT avatar to participate in the game and earn crypto rewards. While a “free-to-play” option exists, it excludes users from accessing ‘PRIME’ rewards, item retention, unique NFT minting, and external item transfers. Additionally, all players, including those on the free version, are required to cover costs associated with the large language model (LLM) powering the AI.

The dynamic interaction between users and their avatars within Colony’s ecosystem is highlighted, with users able to suggest actions to their agents, who may diverge from these suggestions based on evolving objectives. This creates a sci-fi-esque element where agents interpret suggestions differently or reject them altogether, adding layers of complexity and immersion to the gameplay.

Colony’s framework will be built upon existing Parallel Avatar NFTs on Ethereum, with plans for additional digital collectibles to be minted on Solana. The game will introduce a “breeding” mechanism akin to Axie Infinity’s creature generations to spawn more agents.

To facilitate in-game transactions and rewards, players will utilize the PRIME token, bridged from Ethereum to Solana. Parallel Studios aims to release a public alpha version of Colony by either the fourth quarter of 2024 or the first quarter of 2025, with ongoing developments and updates expected in the interim.

In addition to its gaming innovations, Solana has emerged as a major player in the NFT market, democratizing art ownership and promoting financial inclusion. With over 14 million wallets having held an NFT on Solana, its low fees and high throughput have made it appealing to NFT creators and collectors alike.
