Muxlim Pal joins the virtual world forray

Regular readers will know that I am rather interested in the phenomenon that is virtual worlds. Low and behold there is a new one! and it's actually rather interesting.

Muxlim Pal is it's name and it's USP is that it is aimed at Muslims, although it's creator has stated that: "We are not a religious site, we are a site that is focused on the lifestyle...This is for anyone who is remotely interested in the Muslim culture and the Muslim lifestyle,"

Apart from the Muslim focus the rest of the world is rather standard i.e. users create an avatar, interact with other avatars, improve their avatar etc. Items can be purchased using in game credits, these credits can be purchased with real money (always an interesting IP point). The founder says:
"We were seeing that our users were enjoying certain character developing elements of, and as no other virtual world offers a family-friendly environment for our community, we felt there was a need to cater for the people who were being left out."

IP Freely thinks it is a noble idea to bring somewhat alienated sectors of society into the virtual world but whether it will prove a success is a matter for time to decide!
