Bulletproof is a show that has always broken new ground. This experience built on Charisma utilises cutting edge AI and means that fans can get into its world like never seen before. It’s a tremendously exciting new universe.
Using Charisma for Bulletproof Interactive
Let your characterʼs personalities shine through and have their feelings influence their reactions. Play with love, hate, and everything between to make key moments memorable and replayable.
Characters can remember decisions, information about the player, and even playerʼs sentences to quote back later in the story. Like emotions, memories can change how the story plays out, making experiences feel alive and influenceable.
Charisma supports a wide range of state-of-the-art voices for characters with out-the-box support for lifelike performance. Characters arenʼt the only ones with a voice either. Your audiences can speak to Charisma characters too using speech recognition.
If you can write English, then you can write into Charisma. Thereʼs no special syntax to learn. Instead, Charisma uses the latest machine learning tech to make authoring stories fast and simple.
Whether youʼre writing a dramatic soliloquy with a single character or you have a large cast of characters, Charisma supports contextual interaction with each other to perform engaging drama.
Charisma tracks conversations in real-time and has analytics dead-centre in the story editor, so you can write more of the storylines that players are enjoying, and fine-tune the ones that arenʼt, keeping your audiences interested and happy.
