Web-Based Virtual Worlds
Web-based virtual worlds are evolving fast—arguably faster than their client-server–based counterparts. Vivaty, Myrl, and Metaplace are all examples of start-ups targeting virtual worlds. The Electric Sheep Company recently released WebFlock—its own Web-based virtual world. Google's Lively is also Web based. In fact Web-based virtual worlds are not new. Club Penguin and Runescape are among the virtual worlds that have grown into big successes using the accessible, Web-based approach. What is changing is that a greater range of virtual worlds are becoming Web based, and the technology and graphics are improving, providing a greater challenge to client-server–based worlds like Second Life.
