Animazoo shop now on SL marketplace only

After around ten years making and selling animations for Second Life, the main Animazoo store is closing down. (The marketplace store will continue to be available here). There are a number of reasons for this:

1) Things have moved on – we now have new, Oculus enabled virtual worlds like High Fidelity coming out that have been built from the ground up using all the experience gained from SL over the years.

2) I have moved on – I am now looking at new and exciting ways for content creators to store, distribute and get paid for content in the next generation on virtual worlds by leveraging the power of the blockchain.

3) Animazoo’s takings no longer cover the cost of the sim. August 2016 was the first month in all the years animazoo has been running where not enough sales were made to cover the cost of the sim.

Animazoo products will continue to be available on the SL marketplace, and I will continue to support all Animazoo products. The marketplace page is here.

It’s been a wild ride spanning many years. I’d like to offer a huge thank you to all the SL residents who supported the business over the years – despite the technical problems and piracy issues I am still motivated to continue my work with the next generation of virtual worlds.

Thank you all, and see you in the next world!
