Virtual World Resources

There’s quite a lot of buzz about virtual worlds, the so-called 3D networked immersive environments. Stretching the definition a bit, this category includes MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games) as well as the build your own worlds such as Second Life.

Here are some resources to connect you to the worlds, the people who make them, and the news about all of the above. In the MMORPG category I’m not trying to be completely inclusive since more and more of them seem to be announced every week. Moreover, I’ve included some sites concerning general 3D games because of the commonality of the technology used. Via the contact form, let me know if I’ve missed anything important.
