Manifesto

Part 1
Homo Ludens

“What I assert is this,—that a man ought to be in serious earnest about serious things, and not about trifles; and that the object really worthy of all serious and blessed effort is God, while man is contrived, as we said above, to be a plaything of God, and the best part of him is really just that; and thus I say that every man and woman ought to pass through life in accordance with this character, playing at the noblest of pastimes, being otherwise minded than they now are.”——Plato

Games had long existed prior to human civilization. Games has presided along civilizations right from the onset, permeating throughout civilizations up to where we are right now. Games have become as far-reaching as civilizations. Civilization transforms with games. Civilizing takes place through gaming. The real game builds the foundation of civilizations.

The right to game is the right to life: we live as we game.
The existence of games mandates the existence of spirits. The existence of games precisely reflects human beings’ impulse to transcend reality. In games, we are validated, we are appraised, and we are celebrated. Through gaming, we are empowered with the possibility to live between the real and the virtual worlds. That is also to say, “you are free now.”

Part 2
The Life of Your Dreams

Loneliness is an inescapable fate while survival is the fundamental goal for human beings. We must take collective actions with the like-minded, to socialize, to survive, and to strive. This is the essence of social interactions.
Compared with other forms of social activities, gaming is more celebrated for its abundant interpersonal interactions. This interactive experience manifests an intuitive impulse in human nature, which is one’s hunger for social interactions. Socializing is the future of gaming, but the needs are far from being met.

Games provide a very effective social setting, creating an unlimited space full of imaginations, where we can connect with billions of players through games, as if we had created a real virtual world. The users’ involvement makes this virtual world distinct, and the experience becomes unique. In this magical world of socializing, new friendship is born, saving us from endless loneliness, which, in return, provides positive effects in real life and in society.
The meaning of gaming to people's lives is that they can satiate people's yearning for an inspired life, a liberating way of thinking, dreaming and discovering.

Part 3
A Better Metaverse

The creation of MiAO informs the world of an inevitable reality––that games have now become as important as free internet, clean air, mobility, and gender equality in this era. With the new rules, data and technology have made "fairness" a possibility, and choosing to enter into a game world means that a free (wo)man has the ability to choose re-entry into life at any given moment.

"We want everyone to be a gamer, and we want everyone to be a game creator." MiAO is to overturn the status-quos in the gaming world and to constantly generate new possibilities, in the meantime. In MiAO's vison, everyone and any one could be the new generation of game creators, and MiAO gives everyone the platform to co-create a unique game world.

"To create is to game, and we game as how we create ."
Games have become a lingua franca for youth, and gamers have a very strong demand for social interactions. MiAO believes that the synthesis of gaming and socializing will be the next superplatform.

MiAO hopes to use games as an entry point for users to explore more possibilities that combine both games and social interactions while enjoying games as an entertainment form.

To create a world that delights billions of users. This is MiAO’s Mission and Vision.

Vision & Mission

Having worked in the internet and gaming industry for nearly two decades, as well as through perennial insights into users, we have come to a profound realization that the significance of games extends beyond mere pastime and amusement. Games now represent a global culture, a lifestyle, and a social network. Compared to other forms of content, games possess an enchanting element: the ability to facilitate interaction among people or between people and machines. This interactive experience resonates with our primal human impulses, reflecting our innate yearning for social connection. The creation of internet was to create connectivity and connection. Games provide a very effective social setting, creating an unlimited space full of imaginations, where we can connect with billions of players through games, as if we had created a real virtual world. Games have become a lingua franca for youth, and gamers have a very strong demand for social interactions. But the needs are far from being met.

Hence, we perceive a tremendous potential opportunity within this industry: we believe that socialization is the future of gaming. Today's younger generation will become lifelong gamers, and the scale of the gaming user base is evidently capable of nurturing platform-level applications. A Metaverse that combines gaming and socializing presents a platform-level opportunity, which is precisely the driving force behind our entrepreneurial endeavor.
The meaning of gaming to people's lives is that they can satiate people's yearning for an inspired life, a liberating way of thinking, dreaming and discovering. In this magical world of socializing, new friendship is born, saving us from endless loneliness, which, in return, provides positive effects in real life and in society. Gaming as the entry point, we aim to connect billions of gamers, while socializing as the breakthrough, we discover abundant possibilities to synthesize gaming and socializing.

To create a Metaverse that delights billions of users. This is MiAO’s Mission and Vision.

AI will lead gaming into a Metaverse of infinite possibilities.
Artificial Intelligence introduces unprecedented opportunities and challenges to the gaming industry. We believe that AI will have a profound impact on the gaming landscape in two key aspects.

  1. AI will revolutionize content creation methods.
    The evolution of content creation follows a trajectory from PGC (Professionally Generated Content) to UGC (User Generated Content),
    AI + Human co-creation, and eventually, comprehensive AI. We currently reside in the AI + Human co-creation phase, where AI fundamentally alters the manner in which productive forces are harnessed, profoundly impacting the way game content is created. Now, anyone can become a creator with the aid of AI, and anyone can craft their own gaming world.
    As a novel paradigm of creation emerges, the cost of generating content will gradually approach zero, leading to an explosive growth in content quantity and quality. This will form an infinitely expandable Metaverse, presenting more possibilities beyond gaming for experiences such as leisurely strolls and socializing.

  2. AI will reshape the social experience.
    By leveraging AI to create and cultivate more realistic and captivating characters, these characters will serve as connectors within the gaming world, making it more authentic, engaging, and diverse. Players will enjoy highly realistic interactions and immersive experiences.
    Much like the hosts in "Westworld," AI will become your gaming companion or emotional support, not entirely replacing your real-life relationships, but alleviating feelings of loneliness.
    Emotional companionship requires shared experiences, and games provide the ideal social setting. This implies that, within gaming environments, AI will redefine the way we socialize with strangers and friends, offering an entirely new experience.

We believe that these two aspects will fundamentally alter the gaming industry through AI, and such changes are essential for gaming to evolve into a new generation of platforms—"from purposeful gaming to aimless gaming." AI will lead gaming into a virtual world of limitless possibilities, and this transformation is already underway...
