Press release:Â Space, a new virtual world, launched today with free regions
â€œSpace is built for the creative community,â€ said Sine Wave Entertainment CEO Adam Frisby, best known as one of the founders of the open source OpenSimulator virtual world platform. â€œWe were creators, building and selling virtual goods in other virtual worlds. Now we have built the platform we always wanted.â€
Space, based on the Unity platform, offers unlimited-size regions with a maximum concurrency of 100 avatars. Users can access Space from all major browsers as well as desktop clients on Windows and Macintosh computers. The company plans to also supportÂ Linux, iPad, AndroidÂ and virtual reality devices in the future.
Early reviews of the platform have been positive.
“I am really impressed with Space,” said Bernhard Drax, the producer and host of Drax Files: World Makers. “Wandering though hundreds of avatars with no lag is insane! This is a must-beÂ world for every digital creative.”
Space also offers the ability to create and design news interactive locations via a Unity-based suite of editing tools.
â€œI have tried several platforms,” said Cynthia Stagner, director of the Silicon Valley Media Group. “The Space team knows what we need for education, training and entertainment. It is a dream come true. A one-stop-shop.â€
