Update: Click here to learn about Osirus VR

Osirus can be thought of as a massively multiplayer Minecraft but with no limitations constraining you to blocks. Any item you can think of can be created, bought, and sold.

The true capitalism simulator. Every item in this game is created by another player. Every piece of land is owned by another player. You can build the empire of your dreams. You can be who you want, do what you want, build what you want, and say what you want. Osirus is a truly open ended sandbox game. If the game is missing something you want, just create it. There are no skills to level. Just like real life, your skill in Osirus depends on nothing but you. Just remember that if you're not getting better, someone else is.

Real money coming soon?

If the community supports it, we have added the functionality to buy and sell items with real money, therefore making money off of your content. We need a player-base first before we will consider enabling this functionality. We also need your feedback on if you want this feature. You would link a payment account, and $1 ingame dollar would translate to $.01 cent USD. Each time you bought an item or piece of land your real money account would be charged. Likewise if you sold an item, you would be credited. This would be an optional system and the game would be free to play, but it would fund the server costs associated with hosting the game.

Please see the article "Why real money economy?" for a better explanation.


Again, we want your feedback on the real economy features. Please send an ingame message to Tim Weatherford. I will receive them even if I am offline.

In Osirus, you can buy, sell, and rent land out to and from other players. When you (or rather your estate) is in control of a piece of land, you can do or create anything. In real time you can build and create anything you can think of, and then share or sell your items to other players. All items, buildings, quests, and content in Osirus come from the users and players of the game itself. There are no goals or objectives other than those that you set.


Freedom! Explore, create, and build.

Each time a new player is created, a new piece of land is added to the game world, under the control of the new player. This means the game gets bigger and there is more to explore, as the audience gets bigger. Players are free to configure their land/build anything they would like, or sell their property to other players.

Getting Started

Other Tutorial

A guide to getting started in Osirus

Osirus is a game about creativity, and freedom. Nearly anything you want to do can be done in the game. There is a scripting language, and many other tools to create any content you can think of. The first few steps in Osirus revolve around creating your character and your first region.

Create Your Character

You begin as a shapeless wisp in Osirus. That is because the body that represents your character has not been created yet. This is done by first creating the 4 body parts required to make a character. Open your inventory, go to the body parts folder, right click on it, and hit create new body part, and create 1 each of the 4 types of body parts. Once this is done, right click on each one, and hit wear. This will spawn a naked representation of your character.

New and naked, but not for long!


Fortunately you can repeat this process for clothing. Once you have created some clothing, its time to customize your character! Right click on your character, and hit appearance-> edit shape or edit clothes to change either. You can change your character's appearance at anytime in Osirus.

Request your region

The next step is to spend some time exploring the map. Be sure to hit world -> world map from the top menu. You can move with WASD and fly with E and C. You can also press M for first person view. Find an area where you would like to have your own region of land. Then follow the process outlined here to open a ticket and create a request for us to create you a region. Once we have processed your request, you will receive an email notification, and your new land will appear on the map for sale to you for $0, since it is your first request. Fly/walk/teleport(by typing in the name of your region in the URL bar at the top), and then on your top menu hit world->about land then buy land to take ownership. Make sure to cancel the sell order to you after you accept the buy request.

Buy some land, buy some land!


Time to start building!

We won't go too far into building in this tutorial, as it is very complicated, but we will get you started. Press Ctrl+B to bring up your build menu. There are tools to spawn simple objects you can edit into more complicated things(called primatives or prims) and there are tools to edit your land. When you spawn a prim, you can move it by dragging the arrows. You can press CTRL to rotate, and CTRL+SHIFT to resize. Explore the other options in the build menu.

How to create a store/sell items

  1. Create an item to contain the object or objects you would like to sell. For the purposes of this tutorial we will use a simple cube prim that is created from the build menu (CTRL+B)



  2. Drag/Drop items from your inventory that you would like to include for sale in the bundle. You can verify this has worked by going to the contents tab with your container selected.



  3. With your container selected back on the general tab, set modify/copy rights to your liking, then check for sale, and whether you would like to sell a copy or an original. Also set the price.



  4. We recommend you create a classified ad so users can find your item for sale. This can be done from your profile. Click the plus at the bottom.

Thats is for now! Check back for more tutorials! Below are some more screenshots from around the game for your enjoyment.

Thank you for the feedback though. We will be sure to draw more emphasis to what sets it apart from the similar games.

The client is. The server is completely custom, though a fork of OpenSim. The server features a lot more economy features. Its designed to make the game more about marketing and selling. Much of that has not been turned on yet. This is an early beta meant for a few friends to stress test the server. It is open to the public for this reason. Also, a completely custom, cross-platform client is being rolled to better work with the server.

So in short, it is a fork of Second Life, rather than a copy. More precisely, it is a fork of Open Sim, which is an open sourced server for games with a similar feel to second life.
