Habbo Hotel   Lock this link...Send this link...
Using the same system as Mobile Disco comes this more ambitious community playground. With an entire hotel to explore there's bars, clubs, games and more. Best of all, this hotel seems to be always full of crowds of active guests.

Clean, crisp and reserved design is all that's in place to showcase the portfolio of work here, and it's all that's needed. Sliding navigation blocks allow you to access print, logotype and packaging designs without any fuss.

Ultrashock   Lock this link...Send this link...
A year in the making Ultrashock is finally with us. Past the glitzy intro sequences you'll find yourself in a Flash developers nirvana. The very best Flash designers from around the world are collaborating on this site resulting in top quality material, much of if available nowhere else.

One Man's Eye   Lock this link...Send this link...
It's unusual to find a site that offers non-flash and Flash versions of the content and both so well executed that it's difficult to decide which you prefer. The minimalist design allows the photographic plates to dominate, which is focal to a site such as this.

Centre of the World   Lock this link...Send this link...
A promotional site for the Artisan film of the same name, this is going to turn some heads. Using Flash to create a pseudo-QTVR feel, you get to wander the debauched corridors of sin. The effect is convincing with all the seedy haziness of the venue captured convincingly, we're told. Be warned, this site is for adults only.

Mutabor   Lock this link...Send this link...
This German agency seems to find the time to not only entertain their clients' needs but also manage to get an annual design magazine out. A strikingly different front end allows you to browse both their client work and highlights from the magazines.

Zanpo   Lock this link...Send this link...
Open-source directory, community space and multi-user game, Zanpo is many things at once. Chat to the residents, share creations and travel the city for an ideal spot to set up home. Grab the home-making kit and upload your des-res to be the envy of your neighbours!

Evil Pupil v.4   Lock this link...Send this link...
You have to work for the content here but cracking the codes pays its own reward. Visuals coax you with hints on how to delve deeper within the site, whilst your attempts to do so trigger sounds forming an eerie audio soundscape. Disturbing, dreamy and definitely offbeat.

Bang Olufsen   Lock this link...Send this link...
Using minimalist yet effective DHTML and Flash, B&O's design aesthetic is evident in their site. An intelligent system tracks your progress through the site allowing you to retrace your steps with ease. Personalisation is also handled with class in a stylish online diary available free to those who register with the site.
