Saffia and Sophia

Saffia and Sophia

In the latest episode of Designing Worlds we pay a visit to Carrie Tatsu and the amazing Zooby’s, home of animated virtual pets and, even more famously, virtual babies, to learn all about the release of her latest project – animesh babies!

We see how Carrie Tatsu has developed her business from her earliest prim dogs back in 2007 up to the stunning animesh babies that she is about to release. We learn all about what they can do; the ideas behind their creation; and how Carrie prizes above all the experiences they offer.

In addition to discovering more about her impressive new line of Animesh babies, we learn that Carrie is an accomplished businesswoman in Second Life. We hear the story of her business and gain many insights, including her views on Second Life and where virtual worlds are heading.

Saffia gets her own baby, and learns how to create a mini Saffia of her own. Be afraid … be very afraid …

Be warned – the animesh babies will not be on sale until towards the end of April. We predict lots of Easter babies this year on the grid!
