The World of Rival Peak

Meet our 12 dynamic contestants, carefully chosen from thousands of applicants. Each participant brings their own unique story and personal background to the experience. Some have never experienced this type of reality, while others are well-equipped to excel and survive the twists and turns of this mysterious setting.

The Game

Live-Action Wrap Up Show

Weekly wrap-up show Rival Speak featured host Wil Wheaton summarizing the previous week’s activity and evolving storyline, interviewing the AI contestants, and revealing additional plot points. Because viewer interactions influenced the storyline in real-time, Rival Speak had an extremely tight production schedule. As Wheaton described it, “The technical challenges in pulling this thing together were interesting to watch. But it was really fun and exciting to watch them turn around episodes so fast.” At its climax, viewers learned that Wil was also part of the conspiracy, as he appeared (via avatar) inside the simulation after previously manifesting as his live-action self in each episode of Rival Speak. Wheaton talked about his experience working with a dozen virtual characters and an always-evolving storyline/script during a pandemic.
