OurWorld is a chat & gaming world oriented towards children and teens. Users can create avatars and customize them extensively by buying clothes and accessories. Users can enter various rooms and chat with each other and whisper. Users have profiles where they can post information and other users can comment. Additionally, users can "love" each other, with requitted and unrequitted love noted separately. There are also a bevy of games users can play, most single-player, but some multi-player as well. Some of the chat rooms are designed to be conducive to certain group activities, i.e. forming a rock band, etc. Users who play games are rewarded with credits they can use to get better items, clothing, and such. Premium users see the world ad-free and can build a "condo", a feature I was unable to test out, but appears to allow building a customized space other avatars can visit.
