Who Wants to Buy a Virtual World?

If you felt a little green with envy when Disney bought juvenile virtual world Club Penguin for $700 million in cash and earn out, this could be your chance to grab a piece of the virtual pie.

WhuddleWorld, Inc., creator of eponymous online hangout for kids WhuddleWorld,
was forced to shut down in April after running out of money. The team
of five that built WhuddleWorld over the last year and a half is
soliciting acquisition and partnership offers to get the immersive
world back online.

Co-founder Dee Hardrath claims that at the time of shutdown
WhuddleWorld had grown to 76,000 registered members and a monthly page
view count of 20M. She also says the company still receives emails four
months later from loyal followers pleading them to get the world back
into operation.

Interested in investing? Drop them a line. Perhaps you will be the one to pull them out of the TechCrunch DeadPool.
