Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 20th May, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, as we set off to explore the retro world of Bay City, a mainland community in Second Life just celebrating its fifth birthday – and which is the result of an ongoing and unusual collaboration between residents and Linden Lab.

Although on the map Bay City may look like an island, it is actually a very special area of themed mainland, and we’ll be learning all about this from long-time (and very active) residents, Marianne McCann and Ever Dreamscape (who is editor of the Bay City’s own newspaper, the Bay City Post).

We’ll also be visiting some fascinating builds – including the spooky Falmouth Hotel, the wonderfully retro funfair, the Aquarium and, of course, the offices of the Bay City Post – as well as stopping off at the Community Center and a great themed diner!
