ThePalace was (and still is) an amazing piece of social software: a Palace site is a programmable, graphical chat room - complete with avatars, cartoon balloons, games and animations - which can be used to simlate entire virtual worlds. AIP began designing Palace sites way back in the beta days of 1996. Over the next several years we created various Palace-related gizmos & doodads, many of which eventually found their way to this page.

"Under Suspicion" is a modernized remake of the French cult classic "Garde a Vue", a story full of dark secrets and psychological twists.

In March 2000, Comedy Central expanded the World of South Park site to include additional programs. The site was redesigned to accomodate the browser-based "Viewer" version of the Palace software, and over the next 9 months more than a dozen rooms were added to the site. The new rooms represented two new series airing on Comedy Central (now cancelled): The Upright Citizens Brigade and Strip Mall starring Julie Brown.
The World of South Park (aka "The South Park Palace") came online in 1997 as part of the Comedy Central website, launching simultaneously with the television debut of the soon-to-be hit series. Beginning with a mere 30 sets and a fanbase of zero, the award-winning site grew over the next three years to include over 200 graphical locations from America's favorite Colorado mountain town.
