About OTBS Games

Outside The Box Software, also known as OTBS Games, has been developing games for the past 17 years since 2004. My name is Chris Evans the founder and lead developer of OTBS. 

OTBS has developed quite a few games over the years, but by far the biggest game we've developed is SocioTown. The original SocioTown was a web-based Social MMO that was online from 2008 to 2020, the hey-days were definitely from 2009 to 2015.

But once Google Chrome and other major browsers stopped supporting Shockwave, SocioTown began to decline. By 2019 it was almost impossible to play SocioTown on a modern browser.

Over the years SocioTown gained a sizeable, dedicated and loyal following. There has been a consistent demand to bring back SocioTown, but due to the size and complexity of the game it wasn't a trivial proposition. We just didn't have the resources to bring it back. But with crowd-funding platforms becoming viable, a new option has opened up for bringing back SocioTown!

Thus SocioTown Next was born! SocioTown Next will be nearly a fully crowd-funded effort in the early stages. This means former Socians and even new players will have the opportunity to shape the development from the very beginning. 

SocioTown Next plans to be the modern version of SocioTown on both Desktop and Mobile. But the specific features we modernize and which features we replicate from the original will be determined by you the Supporters!
