One game consultant suggested that players from underdeveloped nations might serve as NPCs in the worlds of gamers from more developed countries.

A member of WolvesDAO and chartered accountant Mikhai Kossar commented, "With the inexpensive labor of a developing nation, you might employ individuals in the Philippines as NPCs (non-playable characters), real-life NPCs in your game."

Players from underdeveloped nations might "simply fill the world," according to Kossar, by "doing a random job or just walking back and forth, fishing, telling stories, becoming a shopkeeper, anything is truly feasible."

The objective of WolvesDAO is to “provide the blockchain gaming sector with crucial insights, information, and tools to construct the games and communities of tomorrow,” according to the membership application form.

That community of the future could be dystopian.

Some people find it demeaning to make actual people from all over the world roleplay as robot-like NPCs.

According to longtime video game journalist Andy Chalk, “people are coming up with new ideas for how wealthy Westerners may employ individuals of the Third World in constructive ways.” It’s a repugnant notion exemplified by the word “exploitation” in the lexicon and is entirely appropriate for the NFT industry.

It also calls into question the morality of Web3 gaming in general since “scholars” in developing nations already participate in play-to-earn blockchain games using NFTs they cannot afford to own, with NFT owners taking a cut of the winnings.

Science fiction has long speculated on the possibility of consciousness and the morality of treating non-player characters (NPCs) like throwaway objects. Recent examples include HBO’s “Westworld” and the Hollywood action movie “Free Guy,” which starred Ryan Reynolds.

However, playing an NPC isn’t always a negative experience. Players on “Grand Theft Auto V” roleplay (RP) servers like NoPixel, for instance, already volunteer to play characters who have different jobs in the virtual world. They essentially act out roleplaying as NPCs for free, whether they are mechanics, strippers, or bartenders. Some roleplaying servers have a high level of curation, and there are waitlists of eager applicants.

There is also a vast world of virtual work in games like “Roblox,” which doesn’t require any money regarding compensated metaverse employment. Some contend, however, that ‘Roblox’s’ young creators are being taken advantage of and are not paid fairly.

Once metaverse worlds enter the market, there may be a new field of work, but some vocations are certain to draw more attention than others.

Decrypt’s request for comment from Kossar has not yet received a response.
