Welcome

Watch the stream on a virtual big-screen.

What?

Walk around together in a recreation of E-werk, Willemsoord and Budleigh Salterton. This multiplayer environment allows you to walk around the party, chat with others, and most importantly, watch the demos the way you're used to: surrounded by intoxicated sceners in Saarbr├╝cken, Holland and England.

Deets

Within the last month or so we've been working hard to create a venue where you can not only watch the stream, but also connect with your friends. On top of this we've been adding various features to add to the experience such as chat, emotes, dances, booze mechanics, party lighting during DJ sets, tons of some demoscene soundbytes to discover around the world and much more!

What it isn't

A professional and polished product. Really. We apologize if it runs poorly on your machine, we've tried hard to keep it accessible. Other than that there are many features we couldn't do on time, or proper stress tests.

    System Requirements

    We worst system we tested sofa world on was a Intel i5 with the Nvidia MX130, which was doable ;)

    Let us know if your experience differs, we are always working on optimizing Sofa World to make it available to as many people as possible.

    Lowering Quality and Super Sampling in the settings menu can get you a long way.

    Windows 7/8/10 and Mac is supported. Linux is still experimental



    Powered by Unity, Photon, Mixamo (character & animation), a bunch of free 3D assets & audio.
