New to Second Life

If you are new to Second Life, getting started is simple and easy to do. You will need a free Second Life account and you will need to download one of the free 3D browsing software viewers (Mac, PC or Linux) from Linden Lab or Firestorm in order to join us in-world for a VRazeTheBar virtual Gen Con gaming experience. This YouTube video explains it nicely.

Once you have joined Second Life, find our community by searching for and joining our Virtual Gen Con Experience group (it's free to join) and watch for notices of upcoming events.

More about our Linden Lab Enterprise 3D Virtual World Gaming Platform

We have built our virtual Gen Con experience using Linden Lab's Enterprise/Education version of Second Life - a 3D virtual world platform made available by Linden Labs specifically to provide a safe, fun solution for virtual meetups, classes and conferences.

Second Life, developed by Linden Lab and first established in 2003, is the largest user-created 3D virtual world of its kind and it is being enjoyed by millions of people and organizations across the globe. Typically, there are well over 100,000 simultaneous users online at any one time. Second Life has its own currency and economy, realistic looking avatars (human and otherwise), a vibrant gaming community, sophisticated tools for building environments of all kinds and an integrated marketplace.

The Second Life viewer/client is open source, it is free to download and easy to install on both PC and MAC. For those not wanting to participate in A Virtual Gen Con Experience in-world, we will also be live streaming many of our events for both mobile and fixed devices.
