Active Worlds is an online 3D virtual world with users from all over the world. Users can build almost anything they want, explore what others have built, go shopping, play games and chat with other users.
The company was started in January 1997 with the idea of becoming a 3D-equivalent of a 2D web browser. The idea never really took off, but the ActiveWorlds Browser plugin is still around and enables users to be a part of the Active Worlds “universe.”
The company says they get 1,000,000 hits to their universe server per day and have more than 70,000 registered “citizens” to date. Other virtual worlds include Kaneva, Second Life and There.com. this game is mow sutibale for ages 7 and up
