Looking around the world is done by holding down the right mouse button on either PC or Mac. (This is why a minimum two button mouse is required.) Hold down the right mouse button and move your mouse to direct your character's view.
When creating a new character we encourage you to go through our new player movement tutorial. This is the option on the left in the screen below. Click the portrait to make your selection. If you are already familar with moving around in EverJane (or other MMO or RPG video games) you may skip this tutorial by selecting the option on the right. (The middle option is currently the same as the left.) After making your selection you will be taken to the new player movement tutorial if you chose the left option and directly into town if you chose the right option.
