Game Creation Platform Yahaha Introduces AI-Driven Co-Creation Feature

Yahaha, a game creation platform, is launching a new co-creation feature that is powered by artificial intelligence (AI). This feature, according to Yahaha, will enable developers to create no-code games. The company aims to prioritize the use of user-generated content (UGC) and make the feature available on various platforms including mobile, PC, and Mac. Yahaha plans to expand its focus on no-coding requirements with the introduction of this new tool.

According to Yahaha’s official description of the feature, “The platform boasts many advanced capabilities, including a seamless UI, easy-to-use functionality, stability, and interactivity, enabling users to develop and experience games more efficiently. Yahaha’s voice chat feature creates an ideal co-creation place for game developers, and its drag-and-drop functionality makes it extremely user-friendly. Real-time cloud storage and one-click sharing provide the smoothest game experience, with an environment tailored for cooperation and communication among players.”

Interest & Investment

Yahaha’s innovative features and game platform have attracted a diverse group of investors. The product entered beta testing earlier this month. Additionally, Yahaha has formed partnerships with notable studios such as CGTrader, a 3D model marketplace, and Synty Studios, renowned for their extensive asset library.

The focus on AI in this new feature is not surprising, as AI has generated significant debate and interest due to its potential impact on game creation. Despite Yahaha’s already vast asset library, it remains unclear how much AI will replace traditional content creation methods.

In 2022, Patty Toledo, the developer relations lead at Yahaha, discussed the potential of user-generated content in game development. She stated, “I think the future of UGC is multiplatform from the get-go. Creators must be able to reach everybody, everywhere, at any time. And the more advanced the technology becomes, the more social and open the platforms will need to be. Roblox opened the doors, but the innovation is just starting. There is a lot to explore yet.”
