The latest episode of Designing Worlds – our Christmas Special in New Babbage– is now on the web!

This year’s Christmas show takes a slightly different format. Well-known Babbage personalities – and Mr Merlin and Miss Widdershins, of course! – will be telling two Christmas stories about the Babbage urchins at Christmas time. One is How the Urchins Stole Christmas, and the second is a sequel to what is probably the best loved New Babbage show, The Miracle of the Bells – which of course, contains the dreaded Book That Must Not Be Named.

And of course, there’s Mr Biggins (as you’ve never seen him before)!

Then there’s a very special Christmas song (composed by MacKnight Culdesac) to finish the show – all about the Steam Santa’s somewhat dour companion, the Boiler Elf.

This year’s Christmas show takes a slightly different format. Well-known Babbage personalities – and Mr Merlin and Miss Widdershins, of course! – will be telling two Christmas stories about the Babbage urchins at Christmas time. You could say that one is How the Urchins Stole Christmas, and the second is a sequel to what is probably the best loved New Babbage show, The Miracle of the Bells – which of course, contains the dreaded Book That Must Not Be Named.

And then there’s a very special Christmas song (composed by MacKnight Culdesac) to finish the show – all about the Steam Santa’s somewhat dour companion, the Boiler Elf.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds –the last show of the season and a retrospective of some of our favourite episodes over the last few seasons – is now on the web.

We recorded this show at the beautiful Designing Worlds cafe at the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebrations (created for us by Eliza Wierwight), and our team of Aisling Sinclair, Wildstar Beaumont and, of course, Saffia and Elrik, chose some of their personal highlights.

And we have a special slideshow of images from a very special event, chosen by Wildstar Beaumont, and never shown before!

What could possibly go wrong in New Babbage at Christmas?

We invite you to join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 14th December, for a seasonal episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams when we’ll be revisiting New Babbage in a new showing of the much-loved story of the Most Dangerous Book in New Babbage (kept under strict guard in a few Babbage libraries).

And, to make matters worse, there’s apparently a severe coal shortage in the steampunk city too!

So join us, at 2pm today, to unlock the true terror of Uncle Tingly’s Christmas Tales for New Babbage Young ‘Uns … if you dare.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a Halloween visit to New Babbage – is now on the web.

Explosions may not cause much panic in New Babbage, but when it causes two of New Babbage’s finest sandhogs (one of whom is the redoubtable Mr Jebediah Biggins) to disappear into the darkest recesses of the catacombs, a rescue mission is rapidly under way.

But the catacombs are, of course, never the safest of places to go …

From

From “The Tollkeeper”

This is a special Tale of New Babbage, written by Mr Emerson Lighthouse and read by the New Babbagers themselves: Mr Emerson Lighthouse, Miss Bookworm Heinreichs, Miss Garnet Psaltery. Mr Mavromichaeli Szondi and, of course, Mr Biggins. Mr Elrik Merlin and Miss Saffia Widdershins also take part.

A perfect treat for Halloween!

And you can also read this tale in full in the latest issue of Prim Perfect magazine!
