A clip tweeted by Alex Moss has kindled criticism from the nooks and crannies of the internet world. Apparently, this clip is about a live dance party with no dance steps involved. The clip which was supposed to break the Internet with this ‘achievement’ of Decentraland has backfired so severely that netizens are comparing it to a horror movie.
Decentraland is a 3D metaverse project that has been making the headlines a lot recently. As the project is already online, many firms and brands are making their way into the metaverse by purchasing virtual real estate plots for promotional reasons. There is a widely believed opinion that the metaverse would take over the world soon, and the firms are making their way into utilizing the effective promotional strategies of this concept. Recently, an accounting firm established the first-ever virtual headquarters in Decentraland. Now, as the world is intrigued about the possible uses of this metaverse project, more and more announcements are being brought.
The Twitter clip about a live party shook the Internet users, but not in the way you think. The clip contained some lifeless characters wandering around a space with hazy movements to unclear audio coming from the background. The avatars from the virtual party did not seem to have any distinct features and looked more like clones. So, the reviews have dumped the clip to the bin as soon as it hit the Internet, much to the disappointment of the eager CTO from Decentraland.
The lack of dance movements in a so-called dance party is the primary reason for such a backlash. The fact that an ambitious project like Decentraland could not make proper use of something as common as dancing emotes has deeply saddened the metaverse enthusiasts. The feature has reportedly been in use for nearly a couple of decades now in most popular games. And the whole outlook looks cheap and outdated with third-rate visuals and non-standard movements.
The concept of a virtual party is not new as well. It has been the standard virtual practice in all the popular names like Second Life, World of Warcraft, Grand Theft Auto, and Fortnite to conduct online parties and other virtual events. Unless the developers of Decetraland address core issues like the visuals and ideas, the metaverse projects would not be able to sustain competition in the future.
