Meet the Peridots: Unique Virtual Creatures – Peridots, or Dots, are whimsical, virtual creatures with unique genetic makeups and an extraordinary awareness of their surroundings and environment. They’ve awoken after a centuries-long slumber to a vastly different world than the one they are used to and need the help of Keepers to care for them.
Nurture a deep bond with these digital pets just like you would with a real one. Pet, play fetch, feed, teach them tricks, explore, dress them up, and capture charming photos and videos together.

Revolutionary AR: Niantic’s Lightship Platform – Developed entirely within Niantic, Peridot is powered by Niantic’s Lightship AR platform to deliver a game that is experienced fully in augmented reality. Thanks to years of computer vision and AI research, breakthroughs like real-time mapping, obstacle occlusion, and semantic segmentation mean that Peridots can interact with real-world surroundings in remarkably realistic ways and get smarter over time.
For example, your Dot will recognize where your couch is and make itself at home for an evening nap. It can even recognize TV screens – and Dots won’t hesitate to tell you how they feel about them, especially if it’s interfering with their daily walk schedule. While you’re out exploring, they can tell different terrains apart, like dirt, water, grass, sand, and concrete – and can distinguish between people, animals, flowers, and more, enabling new gameplay experiences.
Peridot’s Future: Embracing AR Hardware – In designing Peridot, we’re looking to the future. Played on mobile today, the long term vision is that the experience will ultimately develop into a platform for virtual life on future AR hardware, including wearable MR or AR glasses.
“In our chaotic world, these creatures bring a dose of joy, whimsy, and comfort into our lives – it’s the delight of owning a real pet minus the mess,” says Ziah Fogel, Director of Production for Peridot. “Our goal was to create a cozy game you could take with you on the go that really pushes the boundaries of what’s possible with our AR platform and can inspire a new generation of AR experiences on mobile and future hardware.”
Connecting with other Keepers – Peridot is all about bringing Keepers together in real-life social situations, as they create and care for new Dots. Keepers can use Campfire, Niantic’s social app, to connect to others in the community to hatch new Dots.
“Peridot brings future-looking technology and meets people where they are today, packaged in a fun, whimsical pet experience,” says Kellee Santiago, Head of Production at Niantic. “But the magic really happens when players connect with each other in order to hatch new Dots. I can’t wait for the world to become populated with these unique, fantastical pets – each one the by-product of one human connecting with another human. My hope is that Peridot can help us all rediscover some whimsy with one another.”
Unlock Peridots’ Genetic Secrets – Once Dots are old enough, Keepers can work together to hatch a new generation of Dots and diversify the species. With Niantic’s Perigenetics System, each Dot is procedurally generated with 100% unique DNA, resulting in countless variations of creature looks. The number of variations surpasses the number of stars in the universe or grains of sand on all the Earth’s beaches (2.3 x 10^24 in case you were wondering!).
Over time, discover Peridot Archetypes, inherit rare Traits and reveal Personality attributes by hatching new Dots. Explore a myriad of creature looks, including Archetypes that resemble real and mythical creatures, like Unicorns, Peacocks, Cheetah, Ram, and Yeti, with more Archetypes introduced over time and during special game events. Collaborate with players to collect all Archetypes and find rare Traits, with some rarer and harder to attain.
