Second Life creator Linden Lab is letting a few more people into its mysterious new virtual reality operation. Today, Linden Lab announced that it’s taking applications for a preview of Project Sansar, a VR-creation platform that it first announced last year. If you’re a 3D artist or modeler, you can put your name down for a “Creator Preview” that will open this summer. We don’t know exactly how high the chances are of getting in, but a Linden Lab spokesperson says that “hundreds” of creators should be invited on a rolling basis before the platform is opened up — however long that is.

Though we know practically nothing about it, Sansar is supposed to be a place for people to “create, share, and ultimately monetize their own interactive social experiences” — it’s previously been compared to “WordPress for VR.” A handful of testers were invited onto the platform last year, and we got a very early look at what they might be making a couple of months ago, in the form of two screenshots showcasing environments like a movie theater and the surface of Mars.
