Join Designing Worlds at 2pm today, Monday 28th September at our studio in Garden of Dreams, for a fascinating and exciting show with our guest Patch Linden (and assorted Moles and Lindens) as we begin by looking at Mole Builds, and end by battling dinosaurs and uncovering lost tombs in the company of Magellan Linden!
We start in Barney’s Bay, a pretty Cornish fishing village (Cornwall, England) created by the Moles – the team of resident builders employed by Linden Lab to create interesting publicly available content to a high standard. They have created fascinating and often quirky builds across the Mainland for residents’ enjoyment (as we have seen on earlier shows – both about Mole Builds and when we took some podcar tours with Yavanna Llanfair)- and Barney’s Bay is a great place to start as it has a travel agency that acts a jumping off point to many of these.
And heavens, do we jump off to somewhere sensational!
We travel to the latest creation of the Moles, the great new game from Linden Lab – PaleoQuest. You enter via the Linden Portal Park (where you can also visit other Linden experiences such as Linden Realms, the Cornfield, the Grid Hunt and – periodically – seasonal events such as the Halloween Tour and the Winterfair). And we are joined by Patch Linden and a whole host of moles who help us explore PaleoQuest (or stand and giggle as Saffia manages to be killed yet again!).
PaleoQuest is a wonderful demonstration of what can be achieved in Second Life using experience tools and other elements that have been devised by the Lab. But it’s also great fun, stunning beautiful and very cleverly planned and executed. And it has a great back story too – as you’ll discover!
Did we mention the fact that it’s stuffed with gifts and prizes?
Patch takes us behind the scenes to explain the creation of PaleoQuest with insights into the planning behind the games (for there are five different PaleoQuests to undertake) before Saffia has the chance to try the game out for herself – with somewhat … erm … variable success!
We think you’ll find this a stunning show – so do join us, at 2pm today!
Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.
