Virtual avatar dating games
Weopia could be the answer to all that; a virtual dating experience that allows you to take a romantic boat ride, watch the sunset and talk in real time to a prospective date while you sit at home in your pyjamas...Weopia is based in Canada and was founded by Dave Wilkie and Stefan Embleton.Operated By: Makena (California) Built By: There Inc.Status: First opened 2003 to 2010, limited reopen 2011, officially reopened May 2012 Customization: Customizable avatars, Houses and Land via purchasable lots.Status: Open Notes: Takes a standard 2D social network profile page, and converts it to a 3D space. Pictures turn into wall hanging pictures, embedded music turns into jukeboxes, embedded videos turn into TVs, and online friends turn into people you can chat with.Website: Open since 2006 Notes: A 3D representation of the world via satellite.
Once operated by AOL, now by an Australian Virtual World company.Website: a footnote, I want to mention a few sites that are almost 3D Virtual Worlds but are a little bit outside of the box.These websites are multiplayer and have 3D elements, but communications and navigation are a bit non-traditional.Voice and text chat via Skype allow them to engage more naturally than via email, and hundreds of conversation stimulators and insightful question suggestions allow them to get a deeper sense of their compatibility and whether they might like to meet in real life.Weopia is compatible with any online dating site; users make contact via other sites and then invite them to their personal Weopia space, allowing dates to screen potential mates from the safety and comfort of their home. No more faked emergency calls from a sister/best friend/dog or fear of face-to-face rejection - users can just end the date and invite somebody else onto their 3D love island.
