About Urbaniacs

Urbaniacs is a comic book world come to virtual life. Transform your online self into your own funk-infused super-avatar known as an "Urbaniac." Meet new "Homeys" or challenge your "Arch Enemies" to a multiplayer battle. Each Urbaniac can be customized in thousands of ways. While the characters and styles are immediately attractive to younger audiences, the depth, clever games, and irreverent sensibility appeal to the teens and adults who play. There is a wide range of humorous and entertaining interactions for anyone looking for an adventure. Direct your Urbaniac to "The Streets" to chat with friends and show off funky super powers, or cruise to the "Arena" to take out some aggressions with a hilarious round of "Wedgie Toss." Join a local challenge to become a "Boombox" master, or spend some time earning "Urbos" (Urbanville's currency) while playing "Beat Bot Boogie." There are many compelling social community features built into the comic gameplay of the world. Once you've earned some Urbos, you can head down to the "Pimp Out Depot" to trade them in for some fresh new gear and gadgets to equip on your Urbaniac. But be careful! At any moment, you could be faced with a challenge, assault, or battle by another Urbaniac or one of the in-game characters. Scared? Don't be. Just invite some Homeys along and you and your crew could take over the city in no time.

The group elements make the site come to life. Try your best to out-rap Urbanville's Mayor DaMan in the "Freestyle" rap forum or check out the "Newbie" posts to get some insider tips about how to play the more challenging games. Better yet, create your own forum and see how the Urbaniacs community responds. Urbaniacs is an evolving virtual world created to inspire the imagination and provide hours of fun, funny, funky entertainment and adventure to all who participate.
