The latest episode of Designing Worlds – the fascinating new project from the Firestorm team, their Community Gateway – is now on the web.
Firestorm, makers of the hugely popular Firestorm viewer, were given the opportunity to create their own new user experience – and they have certainly done a fantastic job over five whole regions.
We’re joined by Jessica Lyon, the head of Firestorm, and by two of the team working on the Gateway, Horseplay Yamauba and Flossy Andrew. Together we explore how the regions give basic instruction, and then encourage new residents to explore some of the pleasures of Second Life for themselves!
There’s some fantastic creativity on display here and some interesting discussion about how best to introduce new users to Second Life!
