Ready Player Me, a cross-game avatar platform for the metaverse, partnered with PIXELYNX to bring gamers highly customizable selfie created avatars to their new music gaming mobile augmented reality and PC metaverse platform.

PIXELYNX is a music gaming platform created by Joel Zimmerman, also known as deadmau5, and Richie Hawtin that offers leading music artists the opportunity to launch their own interactive mobile AR and music metaverse PC games, and monetize it through collectible NFTs, music sales and interactive virtual performances. Ready Player Me is a cross-game avatar platform that allows users to explore virtual worlds with one consistent identity. With Ready Player Me technology, PIXELYNX fans take a selfie to create their 3D avatars and customize them with unique NFT wearables which can be used across their platform. PIXELYNX’s first release will be a mobile AR music game powered by Niantic’s leading AR technology platform.
“Ready Player Me has always been one of the most exciting avatar platforms,” said Inder Phull, Co-Founder & CEO of PIXELYNX. “The team has made it so easy to integrate into our ecosystem and it’s no surprise to see their community of partners growing at such a fast pace. Avatars are central to how players and artists express themselves in the metaverse and this integration will give creators and fans the canvas to be who they want to be.”
In a short time, Ready Player Me has established 1000+ partnerships with companies including VRChat, Somnium Space, TCL, Hiberworld, and now PIXELYNX. The avatar platform has also partnered with popular brands such as the Dune movie, Dior, and New Balance.

In addition, Ready Player Me recently closed a Series A funding round of $13 million to expand their team across the globe.
