Multiverse Launches Virtual World – ‘Multiverse Places’ – on Facebook(R) Platform
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Multiverse, a leading provider of virtual world development technology for Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs), educational and social worlds, and business collaboration environments, today announced a virtual world application built on Facebook Platform, a platform that enables companies and developers to build applications for the Facebook website. Multiverse Places is a revolutionary application that delivers a virtual world experience through Facebook.
"Virtual worlds and social networks are the two hottest trends in online culture," said Corey Bridges, executive producer and co-founder, Multiverse. "Multiverse Places brings these two media together in new ways that leverage their strengths and provide innovative, yet familiar, ways for users to experience them."
Multiverse Places is part of the company's strategy to deliver the next stage of evolution of virtual worlds. Through Facebook, users can experience virtual worlds within an environment they are already familiar with. Multiverse Places lets Facebook users worldwide create customized avatars, send dynamic postcards, and play games with their friends.
Facebook's mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. Facebook users communicate and share information through the social graph, the network of connections and relationships between people. With more than 90 million active users, Facebook is the fourth-most trafficked website in the United States.
Multiverse is a leading provider of virtual world development technology. The company's technology platform has changed the economics of this medium by empowering development teams to create high-quality virtual worlds -- including Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs), social and educational worlds, and business collaboration environments -- for less money and in less time than ever before. Multiverse solves the industry's prohibitive challenges by providing development teams with the Multiverse Platform, a comprehensive, pre-coded client-server infrastructure and tools, a wide range of free content -- including sample worlds for modification -- and a built-in market of consumers. The company gives consumers a single program -- the Multiverse World Browser -- that lets them enter all of the worlds built on the company's platform and available in the company's network.
