ROCKETON is a venture-funded startup that is pioneering parallel virtual worlds. We’re creating a new type of massively multiplayer game combined with a virtual world that is spread across the entire web. Instead of going to a single website, the game is wherever you go on the Internet. You can now play with friends, socialize and interact with virtual spaces and objects on every webpage you visit.
