worlds.com is a chat mmo from 1995 that's still functional today. it's really hard to register an account, i had to borrow one from a friend but it has a lot of notoriety for weird cults and early internet stuff. i'm going to catalog my adventures here.

i went straight to a nexus of archived worlds and right off the bat the only active player (everyone in the room is sleeping) has been following me around and teleporting in front of me

I wonder, when eventually Globohomo strengthens their grip on the web and controll most of it, if not everything; will obscure places like these be the last bastion of internet freedom? Perhaps a place where dissidents and so on meet?

This is so fascinating! Thank you for making a thread, This game is so odd to me that it exists still. All the pictures of it look so lonely, the community must be so tight knit there.

Honestly, we should make a thread that lists any old, obsucre, dying, and niche MMO games that are currently hanging on a thread and catagorize them based on the status and state of game. Would be interesting to see how many people will bring up such games we never even heard of.

yeah, there are a lot of sleeping avatars. the guy who followed me around was talking in spanish to another guy for a minute or two before going inactive. so far i've only seen like 4 active players. tonight i'll be home and i'll play on my main with better screenshots


it's so odd that it's hard to find info on this game, and a working download link.
the download on their main site worlds.net the player doesn't work

the classic site http://www-static.us.worlds.net/cgi-bin/download.cgi?action=full&bundle=WorldsCurrentVer

player doesn't work. i had to download a version of the player off internet archive and then as if that wasn't hard enough, i couldn't register and had to borrow an account.

the amount of secrecy and steps needed to get in is really odd. if anyone wants to try to register you can do it here

http://us0.worlds.net/cgi-bin/register.pl try to do it without a gmail and you may have better luck so i've heard.
