The Palace

Arguably the first 2D graphical chat world on the internet, The Palace was owned at one time by Time-Warner, then by Intel, and finally by Electric Communities, after which it failed as a commercial product. At one time there were hundreds of personal Palaces and several dozen large-scale commercial Palaces online, including KoRn KoRner and The World of South Park, both designed and programmed by As If Productions. Written by the legendary Jim Bumgardner, The Palace software is no longer supported by any company, but is kept alive to this day by an avid user community.
