Get started with Tivoli

Early access

Tivoli Cloud VR is currently in early access. We are constantly adding new features, which can introduce bugs and alter the experience. The early access version of Tivoli is unfinished and doesn't represent the final product. Issues can be reported here.

Create an account

You can create a Tivoli account on our website.

Sign up using email and password, or through one of the external services.

You will be asked for a username. It will be permanent and public to all other users in-world.

Sign in screen

Once you've signed in, you can also find your profile settings and available apps.


  • Click Manage to change your profile picture, email and password.

    Your profile picture will be public to all other users as well.

    People will see a tag above your avatar in-world with your selected picture and username.

  • Apps are also available

    • My Files is your own personal file storage. You'll have 1 GB for free which you can use to upload avatars and 3D models.

    • My Worlds is where you can manage your worlds.

      During early access, getting a server for a world is complicated

      Eventually it will be easy. However, there's an advanced guide for
      self-hosting on Linux which you can find here
