[Preview] Xulu: Empowering Players & Builders

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,596MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Xulu Universe comes to us from none other than Xulu Entertainment. We had the opportunity for a guided tour of XU with CEO Nancy Solomon and CTO Joe Santos. Check out our preview of Xulu Universe and then let us know what you think in the comments.

Players are given access to a robust and fairly detailed set of builder tools that include the ability to create just about any type of environment desired. Builders can make games or social gathering spots or even medieval castles complete with quests and monsters to fight. The sky is the limit and the tools are as simple or as complex as a builder has skills to support. In fact, what the team is hoping is that professionals will take advantage of the tools to not only create content but also behavioral pieces or music or anything they can think of. In addition, builders can collaboratively share venues with others to work together in its creation.

    I thought Second Life was created by Linden Labs?

    I wonder where mmorpg.com got the "creator of second life" from as the xulu website says none of such and as far as I know, creator of second life was "Linden Labs"

    I thought Linden Labs was building the Minecraft, but with Pyramids game.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    company page says nothing about making 2nd life.. i think that was a fubar.  as for xulu this game looks interesting yet boring. 

    seems to be more of a game mode/map creator and less of an actual game.  kinda like getting age of empires and never playing it, only making maps that other people play. 

    still it looks interesting enough to warrent investing time to watch it i guess.  provided they dont narf it too badly for people in the creating area of it.

    Downloaded and installed this last night. Was able to get in and move around a bit. Have to keep reminding myself it's alpha. I'll need to figure out a way to reconfigure the controls or I'll never be able to stand it.

    Yes while in Alpha we are working on fine tuning the controls and vehicles physics, etc. Check out our Controls page to learn more: xulu.com/controls/ . It will also tell you how to re-map your controls there. If you particiapte in our weekly challenges, you can win some awesome prizes like a Logitech Joystick, Gamepad or Headset that could come in handy too!
