SmallWorlds mixes social networking and social gaming to create a fun game world for younger children to explore. The game is playable within your browser and was released in 2008 after a 6 month long beta.

In SmallWorlds you can pursue several skill paths that each level up separately as you complete associated tasks or take on skill specific quests. Skills in SmallWorlds include gamer, artists, explorer, social, crafter, arena and farmer. Each skill has a daily experience cap to encourage you to explore all aspects of SmallWorlds with a level cap of 499 (something you won’t be reaching anytime soon so there is plenty of gameplay available in SmallWorlds).
