Along with Genvid Entertainment, developer Pipeworks Studios has joined the project, the two companies worked on Facebook/Meta’s First MILE Rival Peak, which was partly a game and partly a reality show. The online show featured spectators that could determine the fates of 12 AI characters who competed against each other in a Survivor-style show. The show got 200 million engagements over 13 simultaneous 24-hour, seven-day-a-week live streams and a weekly wrap-up show hosted by actor Will Wheaton.
