Virtual world and MMO middleware firm the Multiverse Network, Inc. has officially debuted the Multiverse Platform, a free technology platform designed to change the economics of virtual world development by providing independent developers with the resources to enter and compete in the $2 billion online game market, at today's DEMO Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.

According to the firm, developers can use the Multiverse Platform without any upfront costs, paying Multiverse only a percentage of revenues only after their games begin to make money. The first title developed with Multiverse, Kothuria, is currently in early production.

In addition, the company has officially announced its advisory board, which includes the recently referenced film-maker James Cameron, alongside former Meridian 59 designer Michael Sellers, Cameron's producing partner Jon Landau, Technolution design and strategy consulting firm principal Max Sims, and Maria Wilhelm, former AOL, Netscape and The WELL executive.

"We are proud to announce the formation of our advisory board," said Bill Turpin, co-founder, president, and CEO, The Multiverse Network, Inc. "These leading minds will undoubtedly infuse a wealth of entertainment, digital technology, and online community experience, leadership and insight into our company and will play a significant role in the stimulation of ideas that will ultimately change the way entertainment is created, distributed and experienced."
