Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 21st November, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams – where we will be visiting the new Horizons Experience, created by Linden Lab and the Moles, exploring the info areas. the social areas and the residential locations – and then exploring the games that lie at the heart of the regions.

We’re joined by Patch, Dee, Kona and Shaman Linden – as well as a number of the Moles, including Naughty, Garden, Abnor, Ancient, Magic and Squishy!

And, I’m afraid, there’ll be an awful lot of Saffia being killed in various gruesome ways!

It’s a fun and fascinating show, so do do join us to watch it at 2pm SLT.

You can now see Designing Worlds’ visit to Temasek, the Second Life region inspired by Singapore, on the web!

Veritas Raymaker, owner and developer of Temasek, has brought something of the history, geography and ecology, and the culture of Singapore into the virtual world.  Ranging from Mangrove swamps and a fishing village to a second world war fort (complete with an aerial attack!) to Concorde and modern builds … and not forgetting a look at traditional food on the way … this is a very rich and exciting environment to explore!

Elrik Merlin was on holiday when the show was shot, so Saffia is joined by Zander Greene as co-presenter as Veritas takes us on a journey around his island from the tunnels beneath to high in the sky!

And this is not the only fascinating build that Veritas is involved with – he also supports the First World War Digital Poetry Archive region, taking it over when the University of Oxford project was coming to an end – and, in the show, we remind ourselves of that iconic build too.
