Welcome to the home of Shoemaker Village! Shoemaker Village consists of two separate but related organizations: a free software development group and a magazine.
The software section of the site is updated regularly with updates to the applications offered, most of which deal with the Activeworlds virtual reality and community development environment. All of the applications are free of charge! Be sure to take a look and become involved with Activeworlds today.
The Shoemaker Village magazine was published from 1993 until 2001, and most of its 42 issues are available for download on the site. In addition, the Village also offers a full-length novel, The Knights of the Square Table, which was included in the magazine for five years, free of charge on the site.
On January 1, 2005, the Village organization started a new blog, Games are for Children, dedicated to overcoming the ridiculous games that are played in dating and relationships, and on July 6, 2008, the Village launched a professional event videography service.
