The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we discover more about MadPea, the long established Second Life group behind some of the best and most memorable games in Second Life – is now on the web.
We talk to Kiana Writer, the founder of Mad Pea, and Kess Crystal, the marketing director (and even sneak a peek at a planning meeting – but no spoilers!).
And we learn about the remarkable results of the Celebrity Auction held last September in support of Feed a Smile / Live and Learn in Kenya, a nonprofit which supports children in Kenya to help them gain an education. They are currently building a new school, and the money raised at the MadPea auction paid for a classroom – which has already been built – and children started lessons in it this January! We share a film about this work.
And we also see some of the process that goes into creating a game almost entirely within Second Life, and look at this in relation to their upcoming game – The Interview. And we learn the secret of the dreaded pink prim!
Then we head off to explore the game of The Ghost Town, part of the Firestorm Community Gateway – which is open to all!
