Envizions Computer Entertainment Corporation today announce its 3-D online community service for the EVO Smart Console. The open source 3-D community will be known as "Our Universe." The new open platform will allow users to create their own avatars and explore a real-time virtual world.

Our Universe beta is expected to go live in the last quarter of 2009. The Our Universe moniker is homage to open source development, meaning that Envizions 3-D online community platform belongs to everyone.

Unlike other 3-D online communities, the Envizions' Our Universe will have a sub-plot story line for users that require a more-game entertainment challenge; other users may simply want to meet new friends, download new content, watch videos, communicate with friends and demo new open source games.

An additional feature allows users to upload content from their EVO console to their Our Universe world. Users can travel from Earth to other planets based on special achievements.

The Our Universe platform will also support gamers to connect with other gamers for online multi-player game delivery service. More details and pricing for the online component for this service will be available over the coming months.

Presented as an open source platform, developers can create new worlds, environments and characters. Open source developers can also utilize Envizions' e-commerce services and launch new games. The platform will use an open source 3-D server platform, to be named in the future.

Terrence Johnson, director of Envizions' operations, stated, "Envizions will contribute code to the project and is excited to work with other developers. Our Universe will launch directly from the EVO Mirrors X interface link. We want our customer base to know that EVO will operate similarly to other virtual world applications but provide an expanded features-set and storyline theme.

The Our Universe viral campaign was kickstarted at BlackFridayProject.com (http://www.blackfridayproject.com) a month ago, accompanied by several other EVO surprises.

EVO is the first open source convergence system to combine PC, DVR, Gaming Hub, Cloud, and Internet TV in an all-in-one device. Currently beta units are been shipped to customers, partners, and distributors. The suggested retail price for the system is $379.99, and 9 classic Linux games are available April 29, 2009.
