NextGen Software was created in 2010 to bring tomorrow's technology today.
We specialise, and take great pride, in providing the end user with a very rich user experience. The latest cutting edge technologies give the ability to create previously unprecedented user interfaces and experiences such as Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality.
Although this technology is not yet widely used, we hope to help contribute to changing that.
This new technology is evolving and changing all of the time and it is hard work sometimes to keep up with it all. That is where we come in, we are continuously looking at new and exciting technologies that can help improve the end user experience and improve business processes (for our enterprise solutions).
Unlike larger companies who cannot change and adapt very quickly, we can constantly change, adapt and evolve, as the environment changes around us.
As new technologies emerge and existing technologies evolve we update our products to make use of the latest improvements. Normally you would expect to have to pay for this privilege but not with us. So when you invest in our products, you are not only investing in the present, you are also investing in the future...
NextGen Software Ltd provides educational, fitness, well-being, health & fun software to help make peoples life’s better and this also caters for Special Needs, whilst at the same time teaching the importance of looking after our environment.
We specialise in educating the world about mindfulness, meditation, yoga etc in fun exciting ways for the whole family though apps & games.
We build apps and games to help make the world a better place...
Our mission at NextGen Software, along with our partners, is to help make the world a better place by using technology for good rather than evil, by bringing people together and to support, guide and educate everyone on how they can all live happier, fulfilling life’s united as ONE. We want to connect people both within their local communities and across the globe.
We will show how people can turn their life’s around and also on how they can support & help each other as well as themselves. We will give people the encouragement , support and power they need to make a real difference and how they can also help and improve our environment by going green and beyond.
We can help educate people how to be at peace with themselves and the world by teaching in fun ways techniques such as mindfulness, mediation, yoga, etc
We will eventually hope to be getting our training and fun games into all schools, colleges and Universities around the world, and this is only the beginning…

Projects are aimed at all and every type of person, age, background, etc. we have plans on how to each every soul, we will be offering FREE training for ALL regardless of who they are and their background.
Yes, it is true, we really are run by LOVE, and not by money, unfortunately at this time, money still helps make the world go round, but it is LOVE which really keeps everything going, we envision one day money will be a thing of the past and then LOVE really will be the only thing keeping the world and everyone in it alive, happy, connected and at peace with all that is.
Imagine playing a game more fun and immersive than Pokémon Go, Minecraft and World of Warcraft combined? A game that is not only a lot of fun to play but also teaches you how to look after your wellbeing as well as looking after our beautiful planet. A game that changes the way we think and interact with each other and the world so together we can create a better world for all of us. One where we can come together and help each other for the greater good of all.
Imagine a world where there are no more wars, poverty or suffering.
Imagine a world where there is only peace, love & unity where we all co-exist living as one human race in harmony with each other and our beautiful planet.
This does not just have to be a dream; together we can create this world…
Let us introduce you to Our World, the game that will change the world. As well as helping to make the world a better place, this game will be pushing the boundaries of what is currently possible with technology. It will feature augmented reality, virtual reality, motion detection, voice recognition and real-time emotional feedback. Plus a lot more! It will use technology in ways that has not been done before and in areas where it has been done; it will innovate and take it to the next level...
Our World is an exciting immersive next generation 3D Virtual Reality educational game/platform teaching people on how to look after themselves, each other and the planet using the latest cutting edge technology. It teaches people the importance of real-life face to face connections with human beings and encourages them to get out into nature using Augmented Reality similar to Pokémon Go but on a much more evolved scale. This is our flagship product and is our top priority due to the massive positive impact it will make upon the world...
Our World reminds people how powerful they are and empowers them to be the person they have always wanted to be, to live their life to their FULL potential without any limitations. Everyone has a gift for the world and with Our World we can help them find it… We want to empower people to take responsibility for our beautiful planet, which is currently in crisis and so needs EVERYONE to help make a difference. The entire world is the Our World team, we want everyone to get involved so they can feel they are part of something greater than themselves and at the same time ensure there is a future for our kids and grandkids.
People learn at a young age how to act and behave and this shapes the future generations and the world they will create. Due to the majority of games these days involving violence, sex, drugs & crime, this is conditioning the youth of today to the sort of world they will create tomorrow. With the advent of Virtual Reality now making these violent games even more immersive and realistic where the boundaries between games and reality is shrinking by the day, it is imperative we take some social and moral responsibility and start using technology to help create a better world by improving people’s life’s as well as respecting the environment and planet that sustains us.
We wish to bring people together, build online communities, encourage people to reach out and help strangers for the greater good of all. To encourage people to come and work together and to show how everyone benefits if they put their differences aside and start all rowing together. It will model the real world and also act as a simulation and training environment for how to make the real world a better place.
With over 4000 likes on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ourworldthegame), which is growing daily, this very important project is being very well received and we constantly receive glowing feedback of how much of a wonderful good idea this is, one that is needed more than ever in today’s world!
We actually started researching, planning & designing this over six years (we have also been busy networking, building partnerships, etc) ago but we could not yet afford the large amount of money it would take to create this. On top of this, the technology did not yet exist to create the vision, but this is now changing. When Pokémon Go was released featuring more primitive versions of some of the technology featured in Our World, we realised we really need to get this game into production. This was further amplified when our founder just finished reading the amazing novel Ready Player One, which featured the OASIS VR Platform, which is the closest thing we have found to date to Our World. Read more about this on our blog...
We need your investment so we can first produce a prototype to demo to interested parties. We can then get more investment to get the first version of this game released. This game will have continuous development with frequent upgrades and add-ons. It is so vast, that the development roadmap is never ending.

As one wise man once said “I have a dream…”, well we have a dream too, a dream/vision where we can all co-exist in peace and harmony not only with ourselves but also with the planet. A vision where war, fear and separation is a thing of the past. A vision where love is the predominant force on the planet.
We want to reach this vision by using technology:
For good rather than evil.
To help connect people rather than disconnect them.
To promote helping strangers who are also part of our beloved human race.
To help improve the quality of life for every soul on the planet.
To help restore our beloved planet back to her former beauty (not that she is not beautiful as she is).
To teach vital life changing skills such as mediation, mindfulness, yoga, exercise, nutrition and being with nature.
To give hope and light to those who previously had none.
To spread the message of love far and wide, to show love is the answer to everything.
To bring world peace once and for all.
To bring TRUE equality and equal opportunities for all.
To promote and contribute to other important world changing projects & events.
To help make us all better human beings, and NOT robots!
To make the world a better place.
To enable us all to live in harmony with each other, animals, plant life & the planet where all life is sacred and valued.
To believe in everyone including those who do not believe in themselves and for those who the world has turned their back on. Everyone has their own special gift for the world, we want to help people find their gift and then work with them to hone it further.
To bring TRUE abundance for ALL.
To use technology to assist mankind, and NOT replace it..
Together we feel this can be achieved, we want to bring as many people together working towards the same goals, for together we really can make our dreams come true…
Imagine if all the energy and resources we waste trying to fight each or to get ahead of the competition was instead all pooled together for the common good of all? Just imagine what we could all achieve working together? We could easily turn this world around over night if we all started working together instead of against each other…
