Google is to close Lively, it’s online virtual Scond Life thing, at the end of December, as you can see here.

The venture launched in July, and was to have the support of game-makers going forward.

Not any more. Google wants to focus its resources on search and apps instead. All the best: we hardly knew you.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
