There’s a brand-new virtual world/social VR platform I want to tell you about! It’s called Resonite, and it is the product of a hard-working and super-talented team of software developers at Yellow Dog Man Studios.
Resonite runs in both standard and virtual reality modes. While it does not require a VR headset to enjoy, it certainly is a lot more fun if you have one! Any virtual reality headset supported by the Steam ecosystem will work (I use a Valve Index at home, and an HTC Vive Pro 2 at work).
Last weekend, I downloaded and installed the software at home to use with my Valve Index, and I was quite impressed with the new user orientation! It reminds me a lot of the former Sansar Social Hub with its airy, futuristic vibes.
Also, all new users receive a beautiful new cloud home, as their personal home base in Resonite, to decorate (or add on to!) as they wish. Oh, and I forgot to mention, you can also easily transfer over your avatar and any other personal files (and homes/worlds) from Neos, if you wish.
Here’s a recently-released mini-trailer to give you a small taste of this product:
Resonite is now available to download under the Early Access program on Steam. The development team is hard at work on tutorials, and a wiki, and they’ve started a GitHub Issue Tracker, as well as a section on their official website for product support, including the ability to report bugs and track previously reported issues.
To learn more about Resonite, please visit their website, join their Discord server (which already has over 3,000 members!), or follow the project on your favourite social media platform: Bluesky, Mastodon, TikTok, Twitch, Twitter/X, and YouTube. And, if you want to financially support the development of Resonite (and get extra perks), they have a Patreon page, with over 2,400 supporters already! (I am now one of those proud supporters of Resonite.)
And because I expect that I will be writing a lot about Resonite from today forward, I have set up a new blogpost category called Resonite, which I will be attaching to this blog post, and to any future ones! Stay tuned for future news and events!
