About this project

No one knows exactly what happened 3300 years ago when a set of planets in a distant solar system split into several fragments. All we have left is planet dust, thousands of habitable islands forming a Nebula....

Project Nebula will be FREE TO PLAY on-line. A 3D interactive world for PS4, PC and MAC, where players have the freedom to use their 3D custom avatar to socialize, play games, explore and customize 3D spaces.  

The Nebula will be in constant expansion. Avatar content and games will be regularly added to the platform. This way, we will create a massive and rich 3D world giving users the free will to do whatever they want to.

  • MEET and SOCIALIZE
Visit the public spaces to meet other users, join events, competitions and play games together or just relax by the pool!


Nebula will support several chat and messaging options, just use the one that you feel most comfortable with.

Do you and your friends share the same hobbies? Make a club and invite them, host events and activities for members, socialize the way you want!

  • DISCOVER NEBULA

Let's dance! Host a party at your place or just invite your friends for a chat. How about playing a racing game or maybe kill some zombies? No rules, no path to follow, you decide. Move through the set of islands and discover the rich environment creating the Nebula. Every island has a unique environment and hosts its own exclusive games.

  • CUSTOMIZE YOUR AVATAR

You are unique, so is your avatar. Use the avatar creation editor to fully customize your character aesthetics, including the clothing and animations. Are you happy with your selection but feel its not quite right for that particular moment? Then just save the preset and use it later!

The Character Editor will include several options to make your avatar look just the way you want. Change your appearance in the way you dress and the way you move, make your avatar special.

  • CUSTOMIZE PRIVATE SPACES

Re-arrange all the furniture, paint the walls, dim the lighting and set the time to midnight, tonight your friends are coming for a scary, ghost story night!

That much and even more you can do in a personal space! Private places will be fully customizable giving you the option to decorate it how you want and use it as you please. After all, it is your home!

  • SHARE

Take a picture, freeze the moment and keep it forever! Share your best pictures on your favourite social network, invite everyone to Nebula and have fun together!

  • UNLOCK CONTENT

Play games, socialize, earn rewards. Doing all this will get you XP points, exchange the points for clothes, pets, animations and even personal spaces!

Do you want more content? No problem! Plenty of content will be released regularly and available to purchase in store for those that want to take the aesthetics one step further!

  • DEVELOP FOR NEBULA  

Nebula will welcome third party developers to publish content in the platform. We will share more information about this once the project is under development. 

  • GAME CARD (Part of Extra Features Stretch Goal)
We aim to fill the public space with various social games. A wide selection from small, casual games to more complex games with different themes will be available.  


The Game Card will hold information about the earned game rewards, overall Nebula level, level in games, achievements, etc.

The game card is where all information on your rewards is held. It tells you your overall Nebula level, specific games levels, rewards and achievements.

  • NEBULA CRYSTALS

Nebula Crystals are the in-game currency usable to purchase further content, such as personal spaces, pets, animations, clothes and the Blessing of Nebula!

  • BLESSING of NEBULA

Users will have the option to purchase a monthly subscription, "The Blessing of Nebula" this will grant users numerous benefits. Subscribed accounts will earn XP faster, have access to exclusive content and receive monthly rewards. Blessed account holders also have the option to fly around with a pair of wings rather than walk.

After considering several options we have decided to use Unity 3D to create Project Nebula. Unity 3D contains the perfect features and tools for us to keep the creating process simpler. It will make a compatible working environment between our 3D package and the game-engine.


This way we will be able to deliver high quality content in a cost effective way. Unity 3D also supports Oculus Rift which will make things easier once we integrate the device to the platform.

In order to keep the overall base cost low, we have added extra features in a stretch goal

  • The Core of Project Nebula will contain the following features:

- All the avatar customization features
- All the personal space customization features
- All the chat and message features
- Pets support - Friend list support
- Dances and gestures
- A set of clothing for your avatar, male and female
- A default personal space
- A Blessing of Nebula personal space
- XP reward system and store
- A public space with the following features:

    - Pool table mini-game   
    - Crazy Golf mini-game   
    - Chess mini-game   
    - Bowling mini-game   
    - Interactive Swimming Pool   
    - 24 Hours dance floor with music

The first stretch goal will contain further features to round up the platform,

  •  Extra Features

- Locomotions support 
- Further Dances and gestures
- Twitch Support
- Exclusive music made by the extremely talented Badolato                    Brothers http://www.badolatomusic.com/
- Microphone support
- Game card
- A wider set of clothing for your avatar for FREE
- A Phone App (android and IOS) with support to check your avatar and the private messages sent in the game

Consecutive Add-ons will implement complex games, servers in Asia, multi language and Oculus Rift support.

  •  OCULUS RIFT SUPPORT 
Oculus Rift users will have the opportunity to partake in the most immersive experience in Nebula. A virtual reality device would be the perfect addition to Project Nebula, reality and fantasy merge with Oculus Rift.  

Adding Oculus Rift support is expensive and not necessary for the completion of the project, that is why we have decided to have it as a stretch goal and keep the overall cost of the main project lower, the most important thing for us is to complete the Nebula and deliver it to everyone.

***We will sharing more information about these in the incoming updates, our priority is to complete the core of the project.)

  • GAMES 

We will implement as many games as we can for the launch of Nebula. The number of games will depend on the overall funding of the project; right now we have 3 games waiting to be funded.

Update: PS4 Support is now added to the Project Goal! For more information check the Update #1!

Project Nebula will be completely free. Users will be able to enjoy all the games in the platform, socialize and create their own 3D avatar at no cost.  
Servers, salaries, expenses and expansions will be paid for by the income generated with the "Blessing of Nebula" subscriptions and store sales. How fast the Nebula expands will be determined only by that.

Risks and challenges

We understand the costing and the financial barriers to deliver a project of this magnitude, the advantage of Project Nebula is that, we only need the seed to begin with, once that is done it will be grown gradually. 
The aim of Project Nebula is to host thousands of players; we have added the cost of the servers in our pricing. We will hire a quality service, we have an estimated number of Nebula users, if it’s higher than we have expected we might have to increase the server service.

Project Nebula will be in a constant expansion, we will bring quality games and content to the platform for users to enjoy. We are aware of how hard is to meet the requirements of the community but we are confident and ready to take the challenge!
