A 2D chat space that uses Virtual Places chat software, VPchat was founded in 2001 by two former Excite community developers, Tom Lang and Julie Gomoll. Their slogan is "no ads, no bull, just chat" and they strive to maintain a harassment-free space with the help of volunteer hosts. Like The Palace, VPchat is comprised of a 2D network of widely varying virtual worlds. Each world contains a set of rooms with background images and 2D avatar-based communication via chat bubbles, gestures, and sounds.
