FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sine Wave Entertainment has launched a new virtual world platform, called Space
The platform is aimed at Unity 3D developers from hobbyists to skilled professional developers.
The platform is a full feature social MMO with powerful tools for content creators and developers, that allows developers to upload and create content, and a real economy for the trade in virtual goods and downloadable content.
The platform went to public beta in November 2016 and has just paid out to developers for the first time today.
Creators are being paid for the sale of their virtual goods including hair, clothing items, skins and vehicles.
The next release also supports the sales of private regions and furniture items.
The developer community includes a wide range of people, building games, live performance applications, simulations and other social and multi-player activities.
More than 200 new virtual goods were released for sale on the live servers by the space community in December 2016 bringing the total number of virtual goods to almost 2000.
Since opening its private beta in September 2016 there have been a total of just over 5000 silver items sales (silver is the promotional credit earned inworld) and more than 350 gold item sales (gold can only be purchased for real money and is only cashed out to approved creators.)
Just over 7700 new users have joined the platform since the beta opened. More than 500 developers have received the Space creator tools.
“These are all small numbers but we are delighted to have cash going out to our creator community at such an early stage.” Said Adam Frisby, CEO of Sine Wave Entertainment, the developers of the Space virtual world platform.
“We love what these guys are doing and their philosophy to be a new virtual platform to suit all abilities and ambitions, and are eager to release our pipeline of clothing in space during the coming weeks and months. BlakOpal and I work as a team, and we really are extremely excited about Space” commented Trilo Byte of BlakOpal designs, one of the merchants who opened a new store in Space in December.
“It's been great to be in at the start with Space, and to see them build up their community of talented users quickly. Being paid out so soon is also a bonus!"” said Newsea, another Space merchant.
Space is built and operated by Sine Wave Entertainment a UK based company with offices in Shanghai and Sydney.
The company has a long track record of innovation in it's market, including as founding developers of OpenSim.
