      I was impressed with how Other Worlds Film Festival used gather as a virtual hang-out back in December 2020. It’s a sci-fi film festifval, so having a virtual space ship as the hang-out felt natural (or at least, the closest you’d get to natural for a film fest during COVID-19). They hid a bunch of easter eggs throughout the map too. The early 2000s runescape (edit: more like Habbo Hotel) feel of the graphics and motion control was surprisingly refreshing as well.
