What is Sirikata?

Sirikata is a BSD-licensed platform for virtual worlds. Instead of a single world, Sirikata lets anyone create a custom virtual world. 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.

You can try Sirikata out by downloading the current version and then visiting a Sirikata world. Or you can check out some videos of Sirikata.

Getting Started with Sirikata

Want to connect to a Sirikata virtual world to interact with others? Then you're an User. Get started at the user starting page.

Want to start creating and scripting objects? Then you're an Application Developer. Get started at the application developer starting page.

Want to create content for the world (models and avatars)? Then you're an Artist. Get started at the artist starting page.

Want to extend Sirikata's functionality (add a new scripting language, a different physics simulation, or better rendering)? Then you're a Platform Developer. Get Started at the platform developer's starting page.
