But unfortunately, at some point, we all experience loss.

It’s the most difficult and painful part of life.

How do we cope with this loss?

How do we honor and remember our loved ones?

Traditionally, cemeteries have been our answer…

 

 

But our loved ones Live On forever in our Hearts and in the World Around Us.

 

And, today, for various Geographic, Financial, Environmental, and other reasons, many of us are Looking for new ways to cherish the lives we have lost.

 

That is why…

We are introducing

How do I visit The Eternal Planet

The Eternal Planet will be accessible on many devices thanks to new technologies like pixel streaming which make experiencing rich and immersive apps like The Eternal Planet as easy as opening a link in your browser.

The Eternal Planet can also be VR-ready, but virtual reality headsets require additional user menus, optimized textures, and interactions to make the experience truly special so we have made this a stretch goal.

How do I honor my loved ones with Dedications?

Dedications are theheart of The Eternal Planet. They are timeless anchors in the digital world that serve as symbols of our loved ones and as links to our fondest memories. 

Almost everything in The Eternal Planet, its: trees, flowers, wildlife, sculptures and even custom items, are available for dedication. 

Creating a Dedication is easy

One

Select a location for your Dedication by exploring the world or swiping through curated scenes and points of interest. No two places are alike.

Two

Select and customize a Dedication from our collection of classic, premium, rare, and unique sculptures, trees, animals, flowers, and more. Each Dedication was designed with love.

Three

Create a short biography and upload some treasured Memories to link to your Dedication. Then, share it with friends, family, or the world. The Eternal Planet can be as public or as private as you want it to be.

Can I create a Dedication for myself?

Absolutely! Many people have asked about creating their own legacy within The Eternal Planet and we fully support that. You can dedicate something to yourself just as you would for any other person.

In fact, we have plans to provide a guided experience, something we call a legacy builder, to help you capture and share the most meaningful parts of your legacy as well.

New to Kickstarter?

Here’s how it works:

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website where companies like ours can launch new & innovative products by getting backers like you to pre-order them  for a discount (pledge) to support their development.

You’ll be able to redeem your pledge for any Dedication available in a matching category when The Eternal Planet goes live. For example, a Premium Pledge for a Premium Dedication and the storage space for Memories that comes with it.

Dedications vary in price depending on their uniqueness, rarity, and level of detail. You can read more about why this is necessary in our FAQ.

Below are just a few examples of the Dedications that we created so far. Your pledges will help us commission more talented artists to create additional Dedications based on your feedback.

The Founders’ Garden: A Kickstarter Exclusive

We wanted to do something very special for you, our early supporters, so we’ve built an exclusive area of The Eternal Planet that we are calling The Founders’ Garden.

A beautiful and peaceful collection of islands and land masses, The Founders’ Garden is filled with one of a kind breathtaking vistas and thousands of nooks and crannies in dense forests, luscious fields, winding shorelines, and manicured parks that will only be open for Dedication creation to supporters of this campaign and their friends and family.

To commemorate our launch, your name, and the name of your loved one(s) for whom you have purchased a Dedication will be etched into a glass and metal wall central to the Founders’ Garden for all to see for as long as The Eternal Planet is helping people cope with the most difficult part of life.

Support other users with our Guestbook

Sometimes, a few simple words are all we need to express our love and support. Every Dedication includes our modern take on a guestbook where visitors can customize the background, font, and message of their entry in a few simple steps. 

Feeling the support of others and paying it forward is easy and contributes to the social healing of our collective community.

Discover a life…a peaceful place…a new way to remember

From its green fields to its streams, its deep forests, lakes and ponds, The Eternal Planet is a tribute to the beauty of the natural world. Ever evolving and teeming with life, it is a stunning and serene setting for the eternal Dedications and Memories it holds. A place we can call upon when we need to reconnect.

Remember

your most precious memories by uploading photos, videos, and stories linked to Dedications

“To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die

-Thomas Campbell

It is said that our loved ones live on forever in our hearts. But, it is our memories that keep our connection to them strong. We refer to pictures, videos, and stories within The Eternal Planet as “Memories” because they act as conduits to reinforce the memory of our most precious moments. 

We created The Eternal Planet to provide a unique online environment to hold and recall these cherished Memories.  Dedications throughout The Eternal Planet serve as gateways to these Memories and will allow you to view them from within its peaceful virtual world.

Visit The Eternal Planet as often as you wish, but have peace of mind knowing that your Memories will always be there. Just like Dedications, we intend to hold Memories within The Eternal Planet forever.

Choose what and who

The Dedications and Memories you create can be shared with your friends, family, or the entire world depending on your preference. 

Choose how

Share Memories and Dedications using your favorite applications like facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, WhatsApp, email, or in person on the TV.

Choose when

There may also be Memories that you want to share, but it never seems like the right time. Memories can be kept secret until they are unlocked at a specified time in the future. 

In The Eternal Planet, you’re not alone. That is, unless you want to be.

Share your experience with others to connect with our community and also with past, present, and future generations in a way that has never been available before.

Despite being a virtual world, the shared elements of The Eternal Planet are what make it very real in the hearts and minds of the people that choose to participate. Regardless of whether you choose to share your Dedications and Memories or not, we all share the human experience of losing a loved one, and it is our hope that The Eternal Planet will help us all cope with that experience just a bit more easily.

People are ready

And are embracing The Eternal Planet. The majority of people surveyed believe that online memorials will become popular as a supplement to or replacement for traditional monuments.

A Word from the founders

founder video

When my grandmother passed away, I was struck by a sadness I didn’t know I could feel. I learned that dealing with the loss of a loved one is, without question, the hardest part of life. As we mourned and made funeral arrangements that were essentially unchanged from those my grandmother must have made for her parents, I told my friend and co-founder, Geoff, that I wanted to do something more, something modern, and something meaningful.

He envisioned a beautiful and timeless world, teeming with life yet undisturbed by humanity. A shared world where we are symbolically surrounded by the ones we love forever.

And so, Geoff and I began to develop a new experience that will connect friends and family across space and time in a celebration of life. Please help us make The Eternal Planet the place to honor and remember our loved ones online together.

Thank you so much for your support,

Anatoly & Geoff

The Eternal Planet is almost four long and rewarding years in the making. From early concepts imagined over chow fun lunches to design and development sessions running into the morning, night after night, we perfected the four pillars of The Eternal Planet: Dedicate, Discover, Remember, and Share so that they can help us get through this most difficult part of life just a little bit easier. And now, we need your support to cross the finish line.

This is just the beginning. Not only will your pledges help us launch The Eternal Planet faster, but they will also allow us to grow our small and passionate team to develop the future of the platform and expand how we experience The Eternal Planet for honoring and remembering our loved ones as well as for memorializing our own legacies for others to experience. We have made some of these into stretch goals for this campaign: 

Thank You!
