Onverse is game that features a huge 3D world for you to explore. The customisation options are nearly endless and will have you playing for hours on end. The game is free to play but does require a download which will work on either Windows or Mac.

The feature list for Onverse is almost as endless as the customisation options available to players. The cornerstones of the game world though are definitely its exploration, creation and chatting options.

With exploration you can adventure to a large range of locations, some of which are based on the real world but most are completely fictional. Popular locations in Onverse include tropical islands, pirate caves, vast open landscapes, temples and extravagant cities.

When you are done taking in the view there are plenty of other fun activities to keep you interested including shopping, decorating your own home, playing games and participating in the social networking side of the community which takes place on the website. These social features include a profile page, photos, videos, messages and your own blog.

Starting your Onverse adventure is a simply enough process, simply create your account and download the software to get started. Once you are in your account you’ll get access to your basic starting, a car and free apartment.

After you’ve checked out your new toys you will get your first taste of customisation options as you customise your virtual avatar to represent you in real life. Of course players have the option to completely create a new identity for themselves if that is what you would prefer. Next you’ll run through some pretty standard tutorials that introduce you to the ways of navigating the game world.

From this point onwards the sky is the limit in Onverse and whatever you choose to do you are no doubt going to have a great experience.

Summary:

  • Impressive 3D world to explore.
  • Plenty of shopping for fans of fashion.
  • Use your creativity and shape the game world.
  • Drive a car and play games.
  • Also has social networking features.

    This was some great help. I’m a mother of a 13 year old, and a 10 year old. My 13 year old daughter, Avery, would really love to play Onverse, but I need to make sure that it’s safe. Also, my 10 year old son, Matthew, wants to play, but is it safe for a 10 year old boy? I’m going to do more research, but if anyone could reply, that would be great. Thanks!

      Onverse is a 13+ year old game. They are strict about that age requirement. Your daughter, Avery, should be fine. I played it and worked as a Guide (their version of an event host/moderator) and I can assure you they do a good job with that. If your daughter has anyone bother her, there is an ignore/block feature and she can report them to the Guide team if necessary. However, your son, Matthew, is too young to play.

    @Marlene Sherr

    A quick look at this wiki: http://onverse.wikia.com/wiki/Onverse_Wiki

    Suggests the game has two currencies PP and CC (player points and cash coins). One currency probably deals with buying small in game items like clothing, items, furniture, food etc.. This kind of currency can be farmed without paying a dime.

    The other currency seems to be what the actual economy is all about, buying land, territory, shops etc.. And can only be bought with real world currency. I’m guessing you need to be a premium member to enjoy the benefits of social networking?! :S

    Seems to be the norm these days the so called pay to win scheme.

    I have made many accounts playing this game. Let me warn you right now, DO NOT JOIN! This is a very strict site and it includes too many restrictions. Yes, You may be able to customize your avatar but, If you accidentally say “Your cousin is 12” they immedietly ban you from all accounts you have owned, no matter HOW MANY times you have sent an email protesting you did not say you were 12. I DONT SUGGEST THIS GAME FOR PEOPLE UNDER 18.

      The game has a Terms of Use, like all sites and games. You agree to said Terms of Use when you join, these Terms of Use states that you agree to be 13+ upon joining Onverse. If you are younger (or say “I’m (insert number under 13)” of course you’re gonna get banned. Whether or not you are joking, because Onverse takes that very seriously. From then you have to email Support and prove that you are 13+ before being unbanned. There are games for children under 13, over 13, and over 18, etc. Each of these games have rules, just like Onverse. So if you are 13+, and like virtual worlds, then Onverse is for you.

    Sinilynn, read what Annnonymous wrote.
    Granted, it’s not worded fully right but the context is clear.
    Apparently Annnonymous got into some conversation that involved something about Annnonymous’ cousin and he/she said this cousin was 12, so the 12 was a comment about the cousin, not about Annnonymous’ own age, yet he/she got the banhammer on every account associated.
    And pointing out that he/she was referring to his/her cousin with the age comment didn’t do diddly, apparently.

    That’s a bit messed up and a lot of overkill, frankly… if their TOS state that users may not be owning/driving a 1973 Ford Mustang, and I’m talking to a car enthousiast and I say that my cousin used to own a 1973 Ford Mustang, then that should in no way be reason for me to be banned; after all, as users we wouldn’t be able to press charges against the company behind the product if the cousin of any staffmember ever burglared our home or looked at us in the wrong way.

    I do wonder, though, why Annnonymous made so many accounts…
