Description

PLAY, CREATE, PARTY! Tower Unite is a community-based virtual world party game with online games, entertainment, activities, and no microtransactions. Tower Unite is a living, evolving world, fueled by the community. Play online games with your friends or make new friends from around the world! Tower Unite isn't just a single game, it contains large multiplayer games that you can enjoy with lots of players, each with its own gameplay and genre. Every bit of Tower Unite is full of online multiplayer fun. Here's how it works: you play games, you earn Units (the in-game currency) and then you can use Units to buy new items to customize yourself and your virtual condo. This isn't just a social game. This is a game about playing games.

History

GMod Tower

GMod Tower is easily our most successful and beloved mod to date. It's a virtual world game that allows players from all over to connect and play various mini-games online. It has attacted over 250,000 players and is home to a very friendly and large community. We're super passionate about GMod Tower and we have been constantly adding new features to it for over five years.

Spritual Successor

We decided that GMod Tower should no longer be stuck in the confines of a mod. That's why we're creating Tower Unite. Tower Unite builds off of the core ideas that made GMod Tower so successful.

Our Standards

We feel that virtual worlds games are wonderful, but content is usually locked expensive behind paywalls. GMod Tower was a free mod and we're keeping the idea of freedom by excluding microtransactions from our game Tower Unite.

Our Passion

Tower Unite is more than a game-- it’s a social network. Meeting new people across the globe is a phenomenon that we love to contribute to.
