LEA25, The Sea of Cubic Dreams

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA25/130/92/21
LEA25 The Sea of Cubic Dreams by ALEGRIA Studios opened yesterday and it's part of their upcoming and bigger project Theater Night’s Dream in LEA25.  In this dark blue, teal and black setting there are cubes you can sit on and push around to make them go floating around, sometimes bumping into each other.  Initially I didn't grasp that to move one while sitting on it you must left mouse click and drag the cube and release in order to make it move (or at least for me it only worked this way) but once I got the hang of it, I had fun gliding across the surreal background.  I saw Rhojen there who was looking pretty cool in this setting and she granted me permission to take her pic for my blog.

Fantasy Gacha Carnival Through August 31

Kathy Nikolaidis, Lexi Brooks and I visited the Fantasy Gacha this evening for a great deal of fun shopping and bank breaking.  Kathy the queen of gacha actually was more resevrved this time than I was, as fantasy is very alluring to me, but then again she may have just been discreet with her purchases since I've taken to calling her gacha queen.  She has a partner in crime in Lexi who sounds like she also has inventory issues.  I'm telling myself this shopping in SL helps curb the RL shopping fix.  Yeah.. that's it.  Anyway.. visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Acerbus%20Silva/128/128/21

And visit here for their official web site: http://fantasygacha.wix.com/carnival#!


As you can see from the photos, the gacha run the perimeter of the sim with a canyon in the middle home to a few adorable little buildings. I started wearing my purchases and Kathy just had to joke that's how I get all the men. I think I lagged the sim in the process of all this too.  There are all things fantasy in the sim gachas so go have a blast, we did.

KAGAMI 2014, A Japanese Horror Event August 1-31

game 10

KAGAMI


It's a game, a mystery, an explore, a place to get cool stuff, a story, it's KAGAMI.   I went in today after I first read about it on Honour's blog here:
http://honourmcmillan.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/kagami-2014-a-japanese-horror-event-in-second-life/
 Of course I had to see and try for myself.  This is another of the properties places where you are teleported around at various times via the game and there are spots it tells it's own story for you and gives clues.  It has a good story and has great photo ops and interesting places to see and explore.  It's also a mystery you try to solve.  You have to have your scripts down, but at the entry they have places you can check and do this.  Visitors accept a hud and use it to pick up things and to get clues, etc.  My first hud was not willingly picking up everything I found that I needed so I actually started over with a new hud and it still would not let me "get" everything (even less using the 2nd new hud). I was able to get some things but even detaching and reattaching the hud didn't let me pick up all I needed.  I relogged.  I have a half decent Alien computer but who knows.  I guess I will have to try again another day.  What I did see, was VERY cool and so much worth the visit.  I just hope I can finish some time.

KAGAMI


Addendum... So I'm updating this post several hours later after I took a break and resumed play.  In the first part I realized I could proceed without seeing everything on my hud as long as I knew I got what I needed and in the right order and it worked so I moved on to the 2nd half.  It was interested as it seemed the same area/layout only had some different elements /look to it and obviously more and different parts to the game.  The 2nd half I didn't have any problems with the hud or any part of it and it went much quicker.  Here's a tip when playing though, especially in the 2nd part, you sort of have to do things in the right order which you will figure out as you go along.  This was a nice challenge and interesting new way of things in SL.  So I did finish it and had fun.  Enjoy!


I also forgot to mention that at the end there is a fun shopping area that also includes Gotchas.
