CityPixel: Social Network 3D pixel world

For those of you who could never get enough of playing SimCity there is a new social Network site that with its pixel graphics look much like the popular game.

CityPixel is a pixel based 3D city (New York) where you can move around, enter buildings, buy apartments, chat, blog, share videos etc, play games, and socialize.

There are quite a few others doing similar things (Cyworld, Faketown, Habbo Hotel etc) but CityPixel is taking this concept a step further. Have a look – worth for the animation alone.

    Cool indeed. I grabbed an apartment and a cube. I wish there was more stuff to put into my cube. If work gets slow I might try to get my whole company on the site ;-)
