Next Island is a Massively Multiplayer Online game based on immersive virtual world built with next generation technology and tools. Just like every MMO, there is something for casual gamers and something for hardcore gamers too who can make real world profit using the in-game economy. The best part is that it is a free-to-play online game so you don't need to pay anything for hours of fun in the virtual world.
Next Island is a very beautiful virtual island. It has a very tropical look with a lot of palm trees and beaches. I would've loved to go there if it were for real. To play Next Island, you need an Entropia Universe account. If you don't have one then you can create it by filling up a simple registration form. After that, you'll be required to download the Next Island game client. Once you've installed the client, you can log in and start playing.
Customize the name, look of your avatar, learn how to play and explore the island the first time you play. The game is very simple and you'll keep learning as you keep playing. There is a lot of stuff to explore like virtual professions and you can end up getting real money from the game. Its a free game and a MMO that can earn you money. I see no reason why anyone wouldn't want to try it.
