Part 1 of a four part machinima I made archiving the 2007 The Show Must go On! variety show which performed around the grid (which the 2008 show is doing now).  Yes, yes, it’s shameful of me since it’s my own troupe of players, but it’s fun and what we all need is more fun.  Now that we are in the Age of Pragmatists silliness might be hard to come by.

Ceci n’est pas une pipe

This isn’t a game. It’s an art piece in the format of a game.

The Graveyard from Tale of Tales
Certainly not to everyone’s taste, this very short “game” will engage those whose gaze extends beyond the ordinary.


Tresure Hunt

May 16, 2008

Treasure hunting it is! If you ever get tired of fast-paced games on the grid, you could always slow down with Starfish Treasure Hunt. The latest event is going to be held on May 18, 2008. You could always regard it as checking in on your luck by seeing if you can snatch any freebies from the hunt if not as a game. Starfishes loaded with prizes, will be scattered all around and between islands. Go to http://secondlife.com/events/event.php?id=1480090&date=1211099400 for the event details.

And if you start having a soft spot for treasure hunting, there’s also the Scavenger Hunt. In 2007, the hunt was held for a community cause (http://www.themsfly.org/). The Second Life events portal, http://secondlife.com/events/, has most events covered. You can check up on the next Scavenger Hunt there. All in all, you could have fun, win some prize and even contribute to the health community.

Try it out and go get em’ starfishes!

If you’re looking for some action, try skydiving! There’s Abbott’s Aerodrome with many freefall shops to begin with. Ofcourse there are many other places to try out this thrill which you can easily look up. In a world free from gravity, flying and floating about is a common thing. Skydiving is the way to go if you want to experience even more reality within the world. You would uncontrollably plummet down like with real skydiving and anticipate your safe landing. This is one sport that you cannot get bored of. Vist http://www.cubeyterra.com/skydiving to see avatars with the most jumps and best average. Events are also held for this exciting sport. You could check up on skydiving events at http://secondlife.com/events. You could also get cheap gear for your first trial from some events. The most recent one lets you get basic chutes for only $1.

Adult Themed Game For Clubs

April 11, 2008


Mob Mentality, a new adult themed game designed to be placed in Second Life Clubs and Strip Clubs, is now available! The game offers fun and sexy game play designed to enhance a club goers experience and create a more social environment as players interact while playing.

Zaplok Riggles, the games developer, had this to say: “I designed the game from the ground up to work well in an adult club environment. The questions are sexy and sure to get people talking. The game uses a HUD so there is no annoying chat spam and means the game can be played anywhere in the club while dancing, chatting, etc. I work closely with my game owners keeping the game fresh with new questions and free updates. We also have an innovative pricing structure to allow any club to quickly begin earning money with the game with zero upfront costs.”

For more information on the game, visit the game’s web page: http://www.mobmentality.com/mobmentality You can also send an IM to Zaplok Riggles to setup an in-game demonstration.
