WereScape, formerly known as Virtual Fandom, was a Furry Community Mega Portal and 3D MMORPG that was specifically geared to the furry fandom. It was the second known attempt to create an explicitly furry-oriented virtual world chat client since Yimu3D. WereScape allowed it's member community to add, edit and delete News articles, Blogs, Events Calendar submissions and also had a user gallery system and customizable user page system. The virtual world was developed by WereScape (formally General Fox Entertainment), and used proprietary 3D engine and programming.

The original project (Virtual Fandom) reached beta state in May 2007 but was then cancelled August 27th, 2007 by the developers that "may one day choose to resume, but for now no plans are being developed."[1] On November 27, 2007, the project was relaunched as WereScape. In April 2008, the WereScape project was permanently shut down due to lack of funding and loss of interest.

In October of 2018 the name Werescape and the project was taken over by Ryan Farnham and is no longer exclusively Furry in nature but rather a direct competitor of Second Life with a planned BETA launch in spring of 2019. Terranova Engine is the core for this project developed by Ryan Farnham which will power Werescape. Terranova Engine is now as of January 18th 2019 ready for ALPHA testing and development phase meaning most of what is needed to make the virtual world viewer functional has been completed.
