There offers a virtual 3D experience and launched back in 2003 making it one of the longest online virtual worlds still available today. The game shut down between March 2010 and May 2012 but successfully relaunched, even allowing previous users to access their old avatars.


The game is marketed as an older virtual world and after its reopening only allows users of 18 years or older to register. The game requires a membership option to become a user which costs $10 a month.

There is developed and maintained by Jeffrey Ventrella and Will Harvey who founded There Inc. There focuses solely on social aspects and provides a large open world for players to meet new people or hang out with your real life friends. What you can do in There is unlimited, allowing you to pursue your dreams and explore places that you never thought possible.

After creating your account on you’ll get to create your own personalised avatar and customise plenty of variables including hair, head, body, skin, eyes and clothing. If you can’t find the items you want for your avatar then you can simply create your own items. You can create anything that you want in the game including your favourite clothing items, your car, your house or your favourite pieces of furniture.


The virtual world of There is very similar to other games and is made up of several zones (usually islands) that all have their own unique feel. In There you also don’t need to type as you can rely on using your own voice which creates a more realistic game experience.

If you are an older gamer that has outgrown the virtual worlds for kids and want an experience that is both customisable and large then There will be worth consideration.


  • Large community.
  • Customise your avatar with tonnes of options.
  • Create your own game content.
  • Stop typing and start using your voice to communicate.
  • Endless possibilities.
