Originally called WorldsAway, VZones is the latest incarnation of a virtual world whose roots go all the way back to the very first visual virtual world, LucasFilm's Habitat (launched in 1985 for Commodore 64 machines). VZones maintains the original Dreamscape world developed by Fujitsu, plus two other worlds called newHorizone and Second Kingdom that must be accessed and paid for separately.
