Social VR platform, is set to close on March 10, 2023. The platform has existed for seven years and was bought by Microsoft several years ago.

ALTSpace was a place where VR nerds, kids and adults gathered to do nerdy things. Unlike Ready Player One, they were unable to save The Oasis and everyone just moved to VRchat instead. We still have our cool trailer park though!

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality has become the preferred reality for many people who want an immersive experience that is better than their current reality .

IRL: You’re a small, timid person with social anxiety.

VR: You’re a giant robot that shoots fire out of its eyes!

IRL: You are wheelchair bound.

VR: You can run and fly and are sometimes The Amazing Spider-Man!

IRL: You have modest means and live in a small apartment.

VR: You’re home space is a mansion in the style of Bruce Wayne’s Batcave and your bathroom is the size of a small house!

Asylum seeker

Adult seeks permanent asylum in VR

I’m sick of all this shit. Just upload me to the metaverse already! I’m tired of loading the dishwasher, fighting traffic, going to bed on time, working and not getting paid enough, politics, religion and war. There’s a better place; a better way. It’s called BONELAB and it’s waiting there for me!

In the “real world” I’m just some idiot driving, a moron walking around or a complete jackass standing in line. In Virtual Reality, I’m driving a go cart on the moon! Here I’m just some schmuck, but in VR, I can be a young Japanese girl or a friggin’ robot.

What am I gonna do here? Pay some stupid bills for stupid stuff I don’t even need? Work my way up the corporate ladder? I can climb a ladder so high in VR and just dive off! Won’t even die or nothing.

I guess I should take a shower. Probably take a dump first. Still can’t do that in the virtual world. Well, you could, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
