Virtual IRL

Virtual In-Real-Life

VIRL is a command-line virtual world, with the following features:

  1. You have an avatar that can move around the world.
  2. Your avatar can chat to people in the same room.
  3. You can ride the bus, take bar, taxi, and more to move between areas.
  4. Moving around the world takes time (eventually realistic time).
  5. You can inspect your environment, and pickup/drop items.
