Paper Mario Meets Second Life

PapermintPapermint is a new “online society” being BETA tested in Austria. 

The virtual environment was developed by Avaloop.  It bills itself as a 3D virtual world like Second Life, with 2D avatars and objects.  For anyone who has seen the new Super Paper Mario on the Wii, there’s more than a passing likeness in graphic design.

Here’s a translated article on Papermint from Futurezone (a German publication)   

And here’s a YouTube video of a German story on Papermint

As you can see from the video, this is in fact a 3D virtual world in a very stylized theme.  The focus of this virtual Vienna is purely social networking and communications. 

If nothing else, Papermint has an interesting perspective on the whole virtual worlds market.
