It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities. This subreddit is about sharing your worlds and discussing the many aspects of creating new ones.

This is a subreddit based around sharing awesome, usually minimal and single-purpose websites and webtools. Also, note to self: If this subreddit gets huge, awesome, if it does not, I will simply use it to back up my bookmarks! << top kek Sure, I'm dissapointed you guys removed my post, I was keen to hear what people on the Internet thought of it. But it mainly saddens me to see beauty constrained by such tyranny
