      Pinappu, try Roblox. It Has immature and mature people in it. The Characters are blocky, well they use to be but you can still play as the old blocky type characters. I have not played awhile but last time I was there the game was going to the minecraft look, I mean in the start up build mode. You can learn to script and build in this game and make your own game, getting a lot of visits was one of my favorite things about it. If you know how to script using LUA then it will become a blast.
