Croquet Launches The First Open Metaverse Operating System

Web3 devs can use the operating systems IDE to create interoperable virtual worlds

Croquet is launching Croquet OS, the first open operating system for the metaverse. The cross-platform open operating system will allow developers to create multi-user Web3 virtual worlds and the new system includes its Microverse IDE for virtual world development.

Croquet OS is browser-based and loads via QR code or URL instantly upon entering a metaverse via the web, mobile, or XR devices. According to the press release, Croquet OS allows for ultra-low-latency, low bandwidth multi-user experiences by utilizing synchronization, live data and persistence services through the Croquet Reflector Network. 

The Croquet Reflector Network is made up of lightweight stateless microservers used throughout the globe by the company and its 5G network and edge partners.

“Using open, standards-based web technologies to produce interoperable virtual worlds that can be published anywhere is a powerful approach to solving a very hard problem,” says David A Smith, Founder and CTO of Croquet, in a press release.

“Open technologies usually win. The web is everywhere, on every device with a screen. It has the largest community of developers in the world. And portals based upon open web standards will make the metaverse truly independent and interoperable.”

Interoperability is key to the future of the metaverse. MetaMetaverse is attempting to make the metaverse interoperable. Likewise, Volt Games recently raised $1.5 million for its fully interoperable sports metaverse.

The Microverse IDE

Through Croquet OS’s Microverse IDE, developers can create virtual words for both Web and Web 3 that offer secure interoperability. The IDE allows for collaborative development between developers. Additionally, virtual worlds built with Microverse IDE can be published anywhere. 

While traditional developers may deploy virtual worlds standalone or to existing and new web properties, Web3 developers can integrate Croquet OS and the Microverse IDE easily with decentralized blockchain deployments, NFT services, cryptocurrencies and other decentralized Metaverse user experiences, say Croquet.
