New Virtual World: Community Garden

I just heard about this new virtual world this morning, called Community Garden. It’s built on top of the SpatialOS game engine. Here’s a YouTube video giving you a first look:

Unlike virtual worlds like High Fidelity, Sansar, and Sinespace, Community Garden is one large contiguous world, without sharding or fragmenting. The developer, Pixelshot Games, says:

For those who have been supporting what Community Garden is trying to do, I thank you. This game is the product of many years of hard work by a single developer attempting to push the boundaries of what’s possible virtual reality with [a] platform not built for VR. My goals for Community Garden are grand; create a world much like the OASIS from Ready Player One where players can be a part of something big. SpatialOS takes a lot of the backend server work out of the equation, but there is still a lot of work required to realize this dream.

This virtual world is not free; you have to pay US$19.99 to join it as an Early Access game on Steam. I’m curious to see what it has to offer, so I might just sign up and try it out!

  1. So is it worth it to spend those US$ 19.99? With the bad experience I had with MetaWorld’s vaporware I’m being careful! 🙂
