Company Details

Update

Founded in 1999, Linden Lab is best known as the creator of Second Life, the largest-ever 3D virtual world filled entirely by the creations of its users. In 2013, the company expanded its product portfolio with Blocksworld, a lighthearted build-and-play system for kids and grownups alike. The company is currently developing a new platform for virtual experiences, code-named Project Sansar, which will democratize VR as a creative medium.
