What is Sirikata?
Sirikata is a BSD-licensed open source platform for virtual worlds. We aim to provide a set of open libraries and protocols anyone can use to deploy a virtual world.
Sirikata isn’t a single virtual world, it’s a platform for building virtual worlds. All the common, core components of virtual worlds are built-in — servers that simulate the world and distribute content, a graphical client, and scripting language support — allowing you to focus on creating the objects and behaviors unique to your world. These videos give a sense of what you can currently do in Sirikata worlds.
If you’re new to Sirikata, start out by trying it out: the download page will get you started with downloading, installing, and connecting to a world. If you want to learn more before running Sirikata, check out the wiki, especially the guides. Once you’re connected, you’ll probably want to try some scripting.
