Has anyone checked this out yet? Just saw a link for it, looks pretty cool. You can be a person or an animal.
And moms and dads you may want to note that this is PG13 with open free chat. Not meant for younger players.

Thats cool that Google made it, nice find rob :)

ETA: Oh I would also rate this game a age 13+ and up game, the first thing I saw when I logged on was a room promoting adult themes.

Here are google's rules:

Lively Community Standards


The Lively community standards listed below play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for everyone on Lively. We'd like to maintain an environment in which everyone can express their views and connect with others. To maintain this type of environment, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service. We ask that everyone abide by these community standards so that we can all enjoy Lively. Violation of these standards may result in the denial of Lively access or deletion of your Google Account.



Nudity and Sexually Explicit Material
We don't allow nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. This includes making sexual advances toward other users. We also don't allow content that drives traffic to commercial pornography sites or that promotes pedophilia, incest, or bestiality. Google has a zero-tolerance policy against child pornography. If we become aware of child pornography, the content will be removed and we will report it and its owners to the appropriate authorities.



Violent or Bullying Behavior
Don't threaten, harass, or bully other users. This includes using scripted actions or objects to harass or attack other users. We encourage anyone in Lively to try to work out disputes with others on your own. In cases of serious threats, harassment, or bullying, we will take action.



Hate Speech
We don't allow the promotion of hatred toward groups of people based on their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity.



Age
Only users 13 years of age or older are permitted to use Lively, and users under 18 must have their parent or legal guardian's permission to use Lively. If we become aware that a user is under 13, we will delete their account. If you engage in inappropriate or unlawful interactions with users who are under 18, we may deny Lively access, terminate your account, notify law enforcement authorities, or take other appropriate action.



Impersonation
We don't allow impersonation of others or other behavior that is misleading or intended to be misleading.



Private & Confidential Information
We don't allow unauthorized publishing of people's private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers, driver's and other license numbers, or any other information that is not publicly accessible. Be aware that anyone can access a room in Lively or participate in a chat with you and that everything you share with others on Lively may become public information. To protect your own privacy and confidential information, be careful not to share any private or confidential information with others.



Copyright
We will respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. For more information or to file a DMCA request, please visit our copyright procedures.



Illegal Activities
Lively should not be used for unlawful purposes or for promotion of dangerous and illegal activities. If found engaging in such activity, we may deny Lively access, terminate your account, notify law enforcement authorities, or take other appropriate action.



Spam, Malware and Phishing
We don't allow transmission of malware, viruses, or anything that may disrupt service or harm others. Spam is also prohibited and may include repeated actions, repeated objects, self-replicating objects, or undesired advertising. Malicious scripts and password phishing scams are also not allowed.



Reporting Abuse
If you believe that someone is violating these community standards, use the "Report Abuse" button within Lively. Simply right-click on the avatar or object in question to find this option. If you click "Report Abuse", we'll review your report and take action if appropriate. Not all reports result in removal. We understand that sometimes people can do harm without meaning to, so we consider these cases carefully. If you feel like your account or content was removed in error, please file a counter-report.

13+ and what I saw so far I am disappointed that someone like google didn't have a better product. I am hearing poorly moderated and the sickos are everywhere but of course when moderation is poor they are easier to find.

Defiinitely parents beware on this one for your youngsters.

Rob, can you put a PG-13 up on the first post? and a blurb of the chat parameters?

Hiya Ace.

I didnt have a chance to look at this site yet. Its amazing how ppl try and push the limits at these places who. For instance on the Smallworlds forum. They have a list of rules much like any forum, but I see very little moderation and there are 2 or 3 guys on there that need to be suspended.
Makes me miss vmk so much more. lol

It says PG-13, but it seems nothing is being done to keep it there. The couple times I've logged in I immediately saw several rooms openly advertising very adult activities. There wouldn't have been so many of them if they were doing anything to shut them down... I vote rated R and say no thank you.

Isn't this another one of those sites that's really a chat room/customized space rather than a game? I've seen it advertised all over the place, but didn't bother to check it out for that reason.

If you see an amberdaze on there it is NOT me. I created a character amberdazevmk there, but I will not be playing this. Overall tone is definitely not for me.
