Who we are 

There are millions of virtual worlds people visit every day to play games, socialise, and collaborate. Today, most of those worlds are closed and disconnected walled gardens. We are on a mission to break down virtual walls to enable a more open and connected virtual world.


Ready Player Me is a cross-game avatar platform for developers, players, and content creators. We give players an avatar that travels with them across thousands of experiences and becomes their virtual identity. For game developers, we are an end-to-end avatar system that saves development time and helps them monetize better. Our avatar tools are used by 9000+ games, apps, and leading brands.

Present and future

We are backed by top investors like Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Plural, David Baszucki, co-founder of Roblox, Justin Kan, co-founder of Twitch, Sebastian Knutsson & Riccardo Zacconi, King Games co-founders, Konvoy Ventures, Endeavor and Samsung Next among many others. 

Our team has built avatar systems for companies like Tencent, Huawei, HTC, and Verizon since 2014. We are working with well-known brands like Warner Bros, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Dior, New Balance, and RTFKT.

With more than 9,000 developers and millions of users, Ready Player Me is the world's leading avatar platform.

Come join us on this exciting journey and play a key role in shaping the future of how we represent ourselves in games and virtual worlds, while breaking down those virtual walls!
