Hmm, honestly a new kind of decentralized social media. most of what exists now are just alternatives. if a unique social media came out of nowhere from the fediverse It would gain alot of traction. (not just because It’s decentralized but because It offers something different)
social media has gamified elements, and often times games are similar, but not quite there yet. in conclusion the easiest unique thing to make is a fully gamified social media app. we have levels instead of followers, and we gain XPs for every follow, like, comment, etc. whatever game-like elements can be added here in the concept but I would guess older people might get embarrassed if we go off a bit like making a ‘2D room user interface’ and ‘2D avatars’ or even pokemon worlds or whatever.
The technology you need for this is coming to a Fediverse near you :D
Christopher Lemmer Webber, activitypub spec co-author has plans to create Fantasary as part of Spritely Project. It is a proof-of-concept, and based on this technology all kinds of games you can imagine come within reach of any fedi developer.
I’m so excited, I’m glad that It’s finally happening.
There’s already some other game-like stuff happening on Fedi. Like Immers Space with federated 3D virtual worlds.
WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA. ARE YOU KIDDING NOW??
I’d be really interested in seeing how something like that plays out.
doesn’t Misskey have like a virtual room thing?
never heard about it, what is that?
idk, i just saw a couple of references to it on their English-language homepage. there’s a page for it in the docs, but i can’t read Japanese
