Active Worlds - A Nearly Abandoned Digital World

Posted Mar 28, 2016 by Suzie Ford

Active Worlds - A Nearly Abandoned Digital World

What happens when an MMO dies but no one turns the lights off? Youtube personality 'vinesauce' decided to find out during a recent live stream event attended by over 6,000 viewers. Entering the mid-90s MMO "Active Worlds", vinesauce found the place to be, as Kotaku put it, a "digital graveyard" but for the lone exception of a single other player "Hitomi Fujiko".

The whole thing feels like something out of a creepypasta, and not just because of the mysterious Hitomi Fujiko. The art style of Active Worlds is also slightly sinister, and there’s something inherently spooky about exploring a place that was once heavily populated.

You can check out the video below to see if it gives that "creepypasta" feeling or not before heading to the link above to read more.
