Ememe is a Town Where AI Characters Live Freely

■ Generate Daily Life

With generative AI technology, NPCs (Non-Player Characters) autonomously engage in conversations, take actions, build relationships between characters, and live their everyday lives as they please.

You can create a reality drama with AI characters, as if it were The Truman Show, by creating new AI characters living in this town, setting their personalities, and sometimes intervening in their actions.

A Variety of AI-based Functions

■ Automatic Generation of Body and Facial Expressions

NPC conversations are generated in real time by LLM. And animations, too! 

Using our proprietary technology, AI predicts and outputs appropriate facial expressions and body animations from over 1,000 motion-data options based on conversations and schedules. Your character will come to life, laugh, dance, and automatically output 3D animations without the need for complex development techniques.

■ 3D Model Upload

You can upload your favorite 3D character models* and summon them as AI-NPCs in Ememe. Plus, you can freely set the personalities of the NPCs, so you can recreate the appearance and essence of your favorite characters.

*Supported file format for motion generation: VRM (for automatic facial and body animation by AI)

Wishlist Registration is Open on Steam and Epic Games Store

The Early Access version will be available in the summer of 2024. 
Access the latest information by subscribing to the wishlist for Early Access.

Our Vision

Ememe aims to be a new AI-driven storytelling platform.

In the next development phase, we plan to transform Ememe Town into an open-world, where a multitude of NPCs coexist. Additionally, we provide users with tools to develop various multiplayer events (game missions) taking place in the town.

The events are designed as a Tabletop Role-Playing Game with AI-NPCs acting as Game Masters, where users can freely role-play, advancing the story interactively as humans and AI engage in mutual conversations. The story and your life merge, much like our own lives.

Ememe is creating an actively engaging storytelling experience that goes one step further from traditional storytelling mediums such as novels, movies or conventional games.

Character Partnership

We are seeking collaborations with IP characters.

  • Transform your IP characters or Vtuber/YouTuber talents into AI NPCs and utilize them for promotional purposes, such as video distribution of life simulations.
  • Incorporate generation AI-NPC technology into your content.

If you are interested in any of the above, please feel free to contact us.

Santa Author Addresses Who Wrote ‘The Night Before Christmas’

On the Bicentennial of Famous Christmas Poem, a New Book Challenges Claim That a Poughkeepsie Farmer, Not Clement C. Moore, Was the Author

In “The Fight for The Night; Resolving the Dispute Over Authorship of ‘The Night Before Christmas,’” author Tom A. Jerman, citing historical, biographical, stylistic and stylometric evidence of authorship, addresses the claim that a Poughkeepsie farmer, Henry Livingston, Jr., wrote America’s favorite poem rather than Clement C. Moore, the wealthy, erudite, New York seminary professor who has been consistently credited with authorship for almost 200 years. The poem, which marks its bicentennial this year, was originally published anonymously on December 23, 1823, in The Troy (N.Y.) Sentinel under the title “An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas,” and Moore claimed authorship in 1836. In 2000, however, Don Foster, a Vassar College English professor and self-proclaimed “literary detective,” asserted in his book, Author Unknown, that the real author was Livingston, who purportedly read the poem to his family in 1808. 

The upshot of Foster’s book and a similar treatise by New Zealand professor MacDonald P. Jackson in 2016 was that the media and some scholars began to describe the authorship of “The Night Before Christmas” as an open question. In “The Fight for The Night,” Jerman explains how the poem’s reliance on an 1821 children’s book, The Children’s Friend, that tells the story of “Santeclaus” delivering presents on Christmas Eve in a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer precludes any claim that Livingston wrote the poem between 1800 and 1808. 

About the Author

Tom A. Jerman is the author of Santa Claus Worldwide: A History of St. Nicholas and Other Holiday Gift-Bringers (2020), a book that has been called the “definitive history” of Santa Claus. He holds degrees in philosophy (B.S.), journalism (B.S.) and law (J.D.), and practiced law for 35 years with two international law firms before retiring in 2015 to document the history of Santa. Jerman’s interest in Santa Claus dates from 1985, when he began collecting Santa Claus figurines and ornaments—a collection that now numbers some 4,500 pieces.
