Get to know Our World and connect with the team

Imagine playing a game more fun and immersive than Pokémon Go, Minecraft, World of Warcraft and Second Life combined? A game that is not only a lot of fun to play but also teaches you how to look after your wellbeing as well as looking after our beautiful planet. A game that changes the way we think and interact with each other and the world so together we can create a better world for all of us. One where we can come together and help each other for the greater good of all.

Imagine a world where there are no more wars, poverty or suffering.

Imagine a world where there is only peace, love & unity where we all co-exist living as one human race in harmony with each other and our beautiful planet.

This does not just have to be a dream; together we can create this world…

Let us introduce you to Our World, the game that will change the world. As well as helping to make the world a better place, this game will be pushing the boundaries of what is currently possible with technology. It will feature augmented reality, virtual reality, motion detection, voice recognition and real-time emotional feedback. It will use technology in ways that has not been done before and in areas where it has been done, it will innovate and take it to the next level…

The software industry has a morale & social responsibility to use technology to help create a better world rather than lead to further decline. It has the power to transform lives through engaging people with innovative products that help them to grow and develop. Recent popular examples include health apps, mindfulness apps and mind training games.

We wish to take this to the next level and help make the world a better place by using technology for good, by bringing people together and to support, guide and educate everyone on how we can all live happier, fulfilling lives and at the same time how we can help save our planet.

We will do this by creating a suite of nextgen apps & games using the latest cutting-edge technology such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Real-time emotional feedback, face/voice recognition, motion detection and so much more.

Our World is an exciting immersive next generation 3D XR/IR (Infinite Reality) educational game/platform/social network/ecosystem teaching people on how to look after themselves, each other and the planet using the latest cutting-edge technology. It teaches people the importance of real-life face to face connections with human beings and encourages them to get out into nature using Augmented Reality similar to Pokémon Go but on a much more evolved scale. This is our flagship product and is our top priority due to the massive positive impact it will make upon the world…

It is the XR/IR Gamification layer of the new interplanetary operating system & the new internet (Web 3.0), which is being built by the elite technical wizards stationed around the world. This will one day replace the current tech giants such as Google, FaceBook, etc and act as the technical layer of the New Earth, which is birthing now. Unlike the current tech giants who’s only aim is to ruthlessly maximize profits at the expense of people and the planet (as well as spying, exploitation, censorship & social engineering), our technology is based on true love & unity consciousness where money and profits are not our aim or intention, our aim and intention is to heal the entire planet & human race so we can all live in harmony with each other. It is a 5th dimensional and ascension training platform, teaching people vital life lessons as well as acting as a real-time simulation of the real world.

Our World is like a XR Unified Interface into all of these hApps (this is the Operating System part of it), it’s a bit like the XR UI front-end to Holochain where you can view and launch any apps from inside it but they integrate much more deeper than that through the OASIS API/Profile/Avatar/Karma system where they all share the central avatar/profile and can all add/subtract the profiles/avatars karma.

As well as helping to make the world a better place, this game will be pushing the boundaries of what is currently possible with technology. It will feature augmented reality, virtual reality, motion detection, voice recognition and real-time emotional feedback. It will use technology in ways that has not been done before and in areas where it has been done, it will innovate and take it to the next level…

It is much more than just a free open world game where you can build and create anything you can imagine and at the same time be immersed in an epic storyline. it is an entirely new ecosystem/asset store/internet, it is the future way we will be interacting with each other and the world through the use of technology. Smaller satellite apps/game will plug into it and share your central profile/avatar where you gain karma for doing good deeds such as helping your local communities, etc and lose karma for being selfish and not helping others since it mirrors the real world where you have free will. There is nothing else out there like this, nothing even comes close, this will change everything… There is a reason we are called NextGen Software! :wink:

Our World is built on top of the de-centralised, distributed nextgen internet known as Holochain.

Our World will be the first AAA MMO game and 2D/3D Social Network to run on HoloChain and the Blockchain. It will also be the first to integrate a social network with a MMO game/platform as well as all of these technologies and devices together. As with the rest of the game, it will be leading the way in what can be done with this NextGen Technology for the benefit and upliftment of humanity.

The smartphone version will be a geolocation game featuring Augmented Reality similar to Pokemon Go but on a much more evolved scale (yes, we were designing this long before Pokemon Go came out!).

The console/desktop version will be similar to a Sandbox and MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) but will be nothing like any other games such as World Of WarCraft & MineCraft. It will in fact define its own genre setting the new bar for others to follow, this truly has never been done before and will take the world by storm! The one thing it will share with them is that it will be a massive open world that billions of players can explore and build together…

Both versions will share the same online world/multiverse where users logged in through the smartphone versions will be able to interact with the console/desktop versions in real-time within a massive scale persistent Multiverse.

As well as smaller apps/games being allowed to plug into Our World either sharing just the central avatar/profile (data) or full UI integration, content creators/businesses can also create shops (where people can purchase real items in VR that are then delivered to your door so in effect is virtual e-commerce), buildings or even entire zones/lands/worlds. They can rent virtual spaces within the game. Please contact us on ourworld@nextgensoftware.co.uk if you wish to receive special early adopter discounts…

People learn at a young age how to act and behave and this shapes the future generations and the world they will create. Due to the majority of games these days involving violence, sex, gambling, drugs & crime, this is conditioning the youth of today to the sort of world they will create tomorrow.

With the advent of Virtual Reality now making these violent games even more immersive and realistic where the boundaries between games and reality is shrinking by the day, it is imperative we take some social and moral responsibility and start using technology to help create a better world by improving people’s life’s as well as respecting the environment and planet that sustains us.

We wish to reach the kids who are glued to their phones and consoles and never go outside, this game will encourage them to get out into parks and interact with people in fun creative ways face to face instead of through their phones.

The game will also be teaching people especially kids important vital life lessons and show how they can then implement them in the real world. Part of the way this will be done is by merging the real world with Our World using the latest cutting-edge technology such as Augmented Reality. We wish to get kids and everyone else off their devices and back into nature and to start having real face to face interactions again. We wish to use technology for the upliftment and benefit of humanity and the planet and not just as an escape mechanism or a way to exploit people by selling their data to the highest bidder.

Our World reminds people how powerful they are and empowers them to be the person they have always wanted to be, to live their life to their FULL potential without any limitations. Everyone has a gift for the world and with Our World we can help them find it. We want to empower people to take responsibility for our beautiful planet, which is currently in crisis and so needs EVERYONE to help make a difference. The entire world is the Our World team, we want everyone to get involved so they can feel they are part of something greater than themselves and at the same time ensure there is a future for our kids and grandkids.

We wish to bring people together, build online communities, encourage people to reach out and help strangers for the greater good of all. To encourage people to come and work together and to show how everyone benefits if they put their differences aside and start all rowing together. It will model the real world and also act as a simulation and training environment for how to make the real world a better place.

We are building the evolved benevolent version of the OASIS featured in the popular Ready Player One novel and Spielberg film. The OASIS is only about 40% of what Our World is to give you an idea of the sheer size and magnitude of this project! It is aimed at saving the world rather than leading to its destruction due to the neglect it faced when everyone escaped into the OASIS. Ready Player One has proven so popular that Spielberg & Warner Brothers have now released the blockbuster film, which we hope will help promote Our World further. It is about someone with Autism who creates a revolutionary 3D VR Platform which takes the world by storm because it is so far ahead of everything else out there. The creator of the 3D VR platform known as the OASIS grew up in the 80’s, is obsessed with the 80’s and had guitar lessons as a kid, which also describes our founder David Ellams.

These are the Last Days of Mortal Man through this God Training Programme.

The self-reflective immersive XR game that has been created as ascension technology to help the user to discover their higher self through learning important lessons in how to be, think and feel as a human being. Through “karma” each individual can build themselves to be a better version of themselves that on a sub conscious level will teach them how this can be applied in the real world. The game truly is a mirror for reality.

Some important points about its potential capabilities and why it could be truly unique:

  • Bio Scan technology - through mapping of brain waves, it can suggest activities and exercises that correlate to the analysis it receives teaching the user to be more mindful about health and wellbeing.

  • Life cycle - There will be time constraints on how long each player can be in Our World for. The vital energy will correlate with reality meaning they will not be burn themselves out locked in the game. Teaching the individual once again the important lessons of having a balanced lifestyle. The character, like the player needs to be looked after.

  • Virtual Advertising - Companies can use the advertising and be awarded prime spots based on their own karma value meaning that those that act more responsibly and consciously will have access to the most prime spots, as opposed to those who pay the most.

  • Time Bending Treasures - Messages and gifts can be buried as Easter eggs for others to collect at later dates bending the nature of time.

The smartphone prototype is coming along nicely and we now have Holochain talking to Unity using HoloNET (a .NET client for Holochain).

This is a world’s first, we are the first to connect Holochain to Unity & .NET. This will massively help turbocharge the Holochain ecosystem by now opening up the massive .NET & Unity ecosystems/devs/resources to Holochain!

We are gifting forward HoloNET to the amazing Holochain community in the hope it will attract devs/resources to help with this very vital project for the future of humanity… :slight_smile: So if you would like to get involved please get in touch below, we would :sparkling_heart: to hear from you! :slight_smile:

Very exciting times!

This is the beginning of the OASIS API/Karma/Avatar/Profile system…

Make sure you check out the GitHub page that has now been updated showing the full code for the screenshot above showing a real-world working example of how to use the HoloNET Holochain .NET Client:

Goto the HoloUnity section to find step by step instructions, full source code listings & technical documentation of the API.

This is a major milestone in our development of Our World & The OASIS API and something we have been working hard towards for a while now…

Now the real fun can begin…

Next steps, are to integrate Points of Interest & Chat into the 3D Map on our Our World Unity demo. The data for this will of course now be stored in Holochain thanks to the groundwork we have now laid and can build on top of.

This will form the beginning of our Google Maps/Google Earth replacement powered by a decentralised/distributed network (ONET) & Holochain.

That is only phase 1 for Our World, then the platform/ecosystem/app store/asset store/e-commerce/gamification of reality/social network come next…

We will also soon be implementing the Ethereum, IPFS & SOLID OASIS API Providers so we can demo how the OASIS API can be used to store/share/replicate your profile/data across any network/provider/system…

Once this is done we will continue to develop the Web API for the OASIS API. This is a .NET Core REST service that can be consumed by any system on any platform.

Finally, we then plan to create a Web UI for the OASIS API so you can view/manage the list of apps/games/websites that are consuming/using/connected to the OASIS API as well as manage the Providers that are storing/sharing/replicating your data.

You can even choose which parts of your data are visible/shared/stored on each platform/network/system so you can in effect store parts on one network/platform/system and store other parts on others. You can also set which of those parts are only shared or if they can be stored/replicated too.

This gives users FULL control and visibility over their data and can allow them to set up their own data redundancy across multiple networks/devices. It gives the power back to the user to manage and use their data how they see fit and allows them to manually set up their own data redundancy schemes. Of course there will be defaults and recommended schemes for non technical people but the UI will be very easy to use so even non techies should have no problem manually configuring all of the options themselves…

This enables everything to talk to everything else so there are no more walled gardens/silos. The OASIS API is the world’s Universal API. This opens up Holochain to the rest of the world and helps get Holochain out there and provides a stepping stone to migrate over to Holochain. Read more about this on the GitHub page mentioned above.

Next there will be a desktop notification UI to view/control the same settings as well as also a interface provided in Unity within Our World to also do the same.

This is still only the beginning and foundations of what is yet to come…

Expect much more to follow…

Sorry for the essay, summarising really isn’t one of my strong points, it is hard to know what to leave out, beleive it or not, I have already left a LOT out, this project is EPIC in size! :wink: lol

P.S. Oh, we also plan to develop a .NET HDK to open it up to even more .net devs/resources to help turbo charge the holochain ecosystem even more! :slight_smile:

We really need help with all of the above so if you are interested in getting involved please get in touch on the mattermost channel above, thanks! :slight_smile:

Finally, I am personally working full-time on this so I have no other income so if you want to donate to a good cause, it would be really appreciated, or if you find a good use for HoloNET or HoloUnity a donation would also be really appreciated, thank you! :slight_smile:

Alternatively, you may know some investors who may want to help keep this vital project going? Funds are running out so please do send them our way if that is the case, thank you! :slight_smile:

I first learnt about Our World in March 2018 and was immediately impressed by its potential as an idea. I came to Our World as a non-gamer with no direct experience of Massive Multi-Player Online Games (MMOG) or Real Life Games (RLGs) but with a sincere interest in working out how to motivate people to engage in pro-social and pro-environmental behaviours both individually and collaboratively. Our vision for Our World is that it will combine the very best game dynamics of the current leading MMOGs with the real world applicability of RLGs and provide players with real world incentives to engage constructively to make the world a better place through the karma system.

Our World is conceived of as a collaborative endeavour since our ultimate aspiration is to unite humanity to save our world! We are truly honored to be connected with so many wonderful people and projects - many of them right here in this Holochain forum - each of which is holding an important jigsaw piece that we need for the creation of a better world. For example, David and I recently had the opportunity to have a call with Sid, the founder of Sacred Capital, whose ideas about reputation scores have the greatest of possible relevance to the Our World karma system. We look forward to continuing to get to know more about this exciting project and exploring how we can work with Sacred Capital. We are already connected with so many other projects with whom we plan to cocreate in the development of Our World. We are limited in what we can do on our own but limitless in what we can do together. As our dear friend and cocreator Chris Larcombe (co-founder of Noomap and S7 Foundation) puts it “Together we have everything we need.” The challenge, of course, is working out how to coordinate everyone’s contribution and that is the challenge that we, and everyone in the wonderful space of this forum, is working towards.
