These include a medieval town inside a large moated castle; a magic forest; a tower library; a spooky forest; the house of Hansel & Gretel (interior & exterior) etc. This entire fairy-tale world is brought to life through the inclusion of many small details, many of which have more or less complex animations or interactivities designed into them. These include waterfalls, windblown wheatfields, an ambling giant, a ferry-man, a fountain, windmills, a watermill, singing birds etc. The SimsalaGrimm world also features its own dedicated set of themed avatars, complete with avatar-specific sets of expressive gestures.
