I also often mistakenly searched "TheHotel" because I forgot the name of it. I actually discovered this today when I Google searched "thehotel chat client smiley avatars". First link was the new site.

I remember playing this years ago! I also remember a lot of people using these weird mechsuit sprites with weapons that were interchangable pieces in the avatar creator. I haven't seen any of those mechsuit sprites ANYWHERE since and it's probably been 10+ years. Does anyone remember what I'm talking about, or perhaps know of a place where all of those different mechsuit sprite pieces were archived? I remember the helmet reminded me of Metal Sonic.

Oldschool user. Used to hang around Nobodys Home, Studio Dust, and Firebirds Forest. I loved Palace back in the day.

Memories :)

Wow. I'm shocked The Palace is still alive. I spent so many hours on this platform. Lots of memories, friends made and lost, and nostalgia here. Almost brings tears to my eyes to think about it. Hopefully it's still relevant in this day and age.

There won't be any buying of the software, it'll be free like it is now from :) has great hosting which isn't very expensive if you're looking to run your own server. Of course you can make your own rooms and such at pretty much any server.

I am so happy that The Palace was saved! I was on it so much back in the 90's and would make a lot of different Palaces. If it does become available on Steam, would buying the software include server costs? OR can I host my Palace on my own site? I will look further into those questions but thank you for staying alive!!

Developer needs to talk with Steam. I searched multiple times for "PalaceChat" in the Greenlight search bar 0 results were returned. It only popped up after I clicked "Most Recent" and then clicked "Relevant" again.

That being said, I am so happy that this chat program is still around!

Just a copy-paste from the item stats as of the time of this post
(Though I think that's pulling the 1,810 from something else since there are 123 software titles right now)

This could revolutionize digital communication if it were on the workshop.

I don't understand the hesitation. These comments indicate this product. Steam files this as a utility but is mentioned as a game after voting.

"Let the developer know why you're excited about their game." But this is filed under a utility, not a game.

This utility crates interaction on a personal and safe level. Even if you use it once you understand why it's so addicting. I had this built into my PC when I received my system from Microsoft itself. What else do you need? Affiliates? Look into it's history.

Steam needs to utilizing the steam - isn't that the category?

My is still up on this, just as I remember it some 20-ish years ago.:mousesitting:

I grew up on this way back when, Starting out at the Fox TV one, Then Mansion, then eventually made my home at ThePond. So many great memories. I remember when the Second Generation of Palace users first appeared--All the Kiddos with "Sk8r" av's, You were cool with an edgy animated-gif spawn version, or one with animated gif bling/sparkles

Sure, if you never used this in its heyday, It pales in comparison to SL, FB, Skype and all that jazz..but back then, This was it.

i think i used it back in the good old days of scifi channel, it was amazing.
Fear & Hate Sep 21, 2014 @ 12:47am 
I used to own this when it was still Palace32. My God, the nostagia.
FyreFen1x Sep 6, 2014 @ 4:01pm 
i have used palace on and off since 1995. Pawn the lead manager of the updated Palace Chat does a good job to stay on top of things. and is a good DEV when "ThePalace32" became out dated and obsolete, Pawn stepped in and updated things and gave birth to Palace Chat "Pchat".
You can wear avatars create avatars stream music. Play any YouTube videos, talk to friends, you can create chat rooms and backgrounds for them. You can even make your own Palace Server and make a virtual world. for yourself and your friends and even visitors!

so if this sounds like fun visit and lets hope it gets on steam! viva la Palace!

wow, i use to own the original copy of The Palace, I bought in the ealry 90's in best buy, Surprised anyone is still actually using this? or even interested in make such simplicity in the chat directions... Very cool. I support.. but needs to stay free to play :)... cause it wouldnt be right if it wasnt.

SueySideUp Jul 21, 2014 @ 3:10am 
Just to reiterate what other people are saying, The Palace has been around for YEARS, and it is COMPLETELY FREE. It can currently be downloaded on , for those of you who are interested in getting it before it's greenlighted on Steam!
Make sure if you download it you check out!
Meddy Jul 19, 2014 @ 12:15pm 
I'd personally love to start a pixel-image based place myself, just not sure how popular such a thing would be these days.
JourdiImani Jul 9, 2014 @ 5:14pm 
Aw!! The Palace! SO many fond memories! (2001) UGH! I would download this just from pure nostalgia...It would be so cool to see all my old friends again :D!
Guyv Jul 4, 2014 @ 1:01pm 
So excited, let's get this thing going!
DarthSparky Jun 17, 2014 @ 8:20pm 
Looking for a partner to possibly start a palace with. Have a good head on your shoulders, please. Add me if interested.

@HilmTye: working on it, but my version won't be on Steam
Cassina May 30, 2014 @ 4:23pm 
For those of you complaining about fetish servers, foreign servers, etc. - WE NEED PEOPLE LIKE YOU! If more people were willing to stick it out, we could build the user base back up and make Palace fun for everyone again. Unfortunately, every new person to join Palace only has these servers to go to, and they are scared out of playing. We need seasoned members to build Palaces. It's going to be pretty bare for a while, but if people build servers, they will be forced to advertise in order to avoid wasting their money, and will also encourage new members to stick around without weirdos dressed as girls in bikinis bugging them.
If we want Palace to be great again, we need to build it back up. That is what the Palace generation before us did - they turned nothing into something.

If anyone is interested in kick-starting Palace back up, please feel free to send me a message and we can talk.
HiImTye May 21, 2014 @ 6:35pm 
I would happily support this if it were set to be ported to Linux
May 15, 2014 @ 10:42pm

Oh my god. ThePalace! Where has all the time gone? So many fond memories. Too bad it's mostly fetish/adult rooms these days. Ughh.
EightyHD Apr 23, 2014 @ 5:51pm 
Huh, I remember joining The Palace back in about 1998, maybe? Back when Mt. Olympus was the cool hangout. I'd probably download this on Steam for novelty, I wonder if I'd ever actually use it...
YTBeatboxLegend Apr 23, 2014 @ 3:52pm 
nice new steam chatt XD its funny, realy
SB Apr 19, 2014 @ 6:52pm 
I've seen something like the yeaaarrrs back, wouldn't mind using it again :P Supporting.
cl Apr 2, 2014 @ 8:16pm 
I never played/remember this,but looks a cool chat.
404_Not_Found Mar 29, 2014 @ 5:56pm 
@Trifonic the benefits of being a girl in predominantly gay fandoms has its advantages :V

This looks like Whirled, which I hated - you needed Flash knowledge to make animated avatars or animated anything, really. They should have created a GIF editor, but no, they wanted to be all exclusive with the creating of things that moved. I wonder if this is different.

Dunno if I'd use it now anyway; only thing I ever used MUDs of any kind for was RP, and I haven't done that in years on a serious scale. God I feel old.
HungryForButts Mar 27, 2014 @ 3:59pm 
I miss this program. Good old days when chatting with strangers online wasn't always about eventually seeing their dicks. Ah, nostalgia.
Vycer Mar 15, 2014 @ 2:23pm 
I get major nostalgia right now. I remember this from so many years ago.
I didn't even think they ever continue or update this stuff, as the hype didn't last too long.
nesaMDoom Mar 11, 2014 @ 1:14am 
what the hell, where's this been for the last 15 years? the program went away and there was nowhere to get it... but it used to be on something else

Yesss PalaceChat on steam what a phenomenal idea!!! Jamie has put so much work into the old Palace client to bring it to what is now known as PalaceChat. PChat is a place where creativity can flourish, friends can be made, and so much more. So if you have not checked this out yet you really should, it's a great 2D chat realm with so many possibilities, but we need votes people to make this happen on Steam, so share this with your friends, family and whoever you can think of to make it so.. Oh and the best part its FREE to download. Get it now!!! All the best from syn at StormPalaceHosting.
