I Pac-Man

January 11, 2008

Check this out: ever want to be Pac-Man? No? Well, too bad, you are anyhow you lucky you!

A company called Intoint has made a version of it in Second Life (slurl: that’s way too much fun. They call it “Intoman”, of course, but hey it’s a promotional. Whenever the game ends you get flung to some random location around the island. It’s a pretty fun way to die, actually.


Starting up is easy. Go to the table with the backpack on it, buy one for 0L$, wear it, and click on it. Game starts.


Gameplay is pretty simple – run into the power-pellets and get ’em all to go on to the next level. Get hit by a ghost three times or run out of time and it’s game over. For an extra challenge, try mouselook. It’s a lot harder somehow.


This is me on my fifth game. I finally made it to level 2 before that ghost got me. Dammit. I decided to take a break and let Hydra Shaftoe take a crack at it.


Watching is as much fun as playing. There’s a big seating area for the audience, so bring some friends.

It’s free. Go play it. Power pellets await. Go. Now. Stop reading. I said stop! Gah! (slurl: (slurl: (slurl: (slurl: (slurl: GO! (slurl:

Below is a quick writeup from the sim’s creators. Got a game you’d like to see here? IM Onder Skall today!



A wonderful sim that captivates the eye for the candy is a plenty here. This Roleplay sim has many hidden features and is set on a 3 level tier build, the owner and builder Dannon Robbiani has taken much care and dedication to detail this great sim. This opens to a dock area that channels through gates of theis medieval setting, a large market, and the second set of gates opens to a very detaild dragon statue and castle with many towers.


Beyond the castle is the warriors arena, one of the nicest around, across from the arena is also two grand builds, the cathedral and the ballroom which nothing compares. It has a very nicely set village for its residents and an entry to the underworld below, Incan temples, dark forests, foggy hills laiden with quicksand and a dark tower centered on water. in the market you can find a globe that will take you to the 3rd tier which is the Drakes Cove, lush forest crystal caves and a dragons lair, some resident prefer to reside here but even all the shops and home rentals are cheap for this kind of detail. The ballroom is a formal waltz ballroom so bring your tuxes and gowns for this prestigous place. dances start at 7pm nightly.

I actually lived through this

The wind whips violently through your hair, as you slam down on the ccelerator barreling your vehicle down the straightway. You white-knuckle your keyboard as you ease onto the brakes, shifting down to first gear, a little bit of the ol’ “heel-toe, heel-toe” and you expertly drift sideways through the tight hairpin turn, straighten out, and blast off into a screaming 4th gear sprint past the blurring rows of futuristic buildings and street signs.

20 Things To Do In Octoberville

by Onder Skall

This article was originally posted in the Second Life Herald.

Octoberville is back again over at PixelTrix; a full sim of kooky creepy Halloween goodness courtesy of visionary Cherub Spectre. There’s more to see and do than could possibly be covered in a single article, and you really have to see for yourself anyhow. So, instead of boring you all with a big epic about how marvelous the place is, I’ve boiled my photo essay down to 20 things that you can do. Go do them.

Tim Hortons Grand Reopening

September 26, 2007

Tim Hortons

Yay for Canada! 🙂 Here’s the SLurl.

Well ok, truth is I’m more of a Netizen than a Canadian. Yesterday I was on a conference call with Nick in Denmark, Bruce Joy in Australia, and me in Canada. Later I chatted briefly with someone in Germany until I got on another call with New York. When this kind of thing happens regularly you start to see yourself as a citizen of the world more than anything.

Having said that…

Are you from Ontario? Join the Ontario Metaverse group! It’s fun, it’s social, it’s spam-free! We might even do real-world meetup type things!


Octoberville Returns

September 17, 2007

OctobervilleConsider this your teaser. The sim isn’t built yet, but more is coming.

I have a feeling that fall and winter are going to be insane for gaming in SL the way things are shaping up. I have a backlog. Watch this space.
