Ozzy Furocity, also known as OzFur, is an online gaming community based in Australia.[1]

History[edit]

Prior to founding Ozzy Furocity, Leon Hunter operated several Australian Team Fortress 2 servers for The Furry Pound. However, the relationship began to sour a little over a month later due to unspecified irreconcilable differences at an administrative level. In response, Leon took the first steps toward breaking away from The Furry Pound, founding Ozzy Furocity on September 11, 2010.[1]

Since then, the community has grown to become a multi-national gaming community spanning three continents with 17,000+ group members.[1] In August 2011, Ozzy Furocity became the largest furry-based gaming community on Steam.[2] By June 14, 2015, the community had cumulatively hosted 1.35+ million unique players since its inception.[3]

The name Ozzy Furocity originates from a play on the words "Ozzy" (to describe its Australian origin), and "Furocity", which is a portmanteau of the words ferocity and furry. The community has close relations with the International Yiff Center steam group, a Second Life furry club.[4]

Hosted games[edit]

Ozzy Furocity hosts Team Fortress 2, Garry's Mod, Killing Floor, Killing Floor 2, Minecraft, and Teamspeak servers in Australia, United States and United Kingdom.[3][5] Ozzy Furocity created the Vs Saxton Hale Remake,[6] a closed-source modification for Team Fortress 2.
