Second Life – The Largest-Ever 3D Virtual World Created By Users

Second Life is an online virtual world, developed by San Francisco–based Linden Lab and launched on June 23, 2003; and in 2014 had about 1 million regular users, according to Linden Lab, which own Second Life. In many ways, Second Life is similar to MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games); however, Linden Lab is emphatic that their creation is not a game: “There is no manufactured conflict, no set objective”.

Second Life is an online 3D virtual world imagined and designed by you. From the moment you enter Second Life, you’ll discover a universe brimming with people and possibilities.

Create and customize your own digital 3D persona, also known as your avatar. Be a fashion diva, a business-savvy entrepreneur, or a robot or all three. Changing identities is quick and easy, so if you tire of your avatars outfit or body, shop for a new one in Second Life or from your web browser. Then switch it in seconds.

Every minute, Residents assemble buildings, design new fashion lines and launch clubs and businesses. There’s always more to see and do.

How to play:

  1. Download a free client for Windows, MAC, Linux (original Viewer) or Firestorm 64bit (better!!!)
  2. Sign up an account on for free!
  3. Login with your downloaded and installed viewer
  4. I show you some of my favorite places, music clubs and Live DJ’s
  5. Have fun and meet me Jörg Garmes™ (joerg.garmes) in game world 😉

The basic account from Second Life is free! So it is a free-to-play game. Only the premium account (you do not need…) costs a bit money. It was available on Steam earlier. But not now… You find it on Desura too. Feel free and listen the Soundcloud song from or view the video about SL below. Alternative you can visit my fashion and style blog about Second Life here: My greatest moment in SL was the meeting with Philip Linden (Philip Rosedale – Creator of Second Life).
