Designing Worlds explores Hallowe’en in 2020!

In our new episode of Designing Worlds, we visit some of the scary regions you can visit around the Second Life Grid for Hallowe’en 2020.

Join us at 2pm today Monday 26th October for our special Hallowe’en edition when you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds. Or join us for our Watch Party in the Designing Worlds studios at 2pm SLT.

We kick off with a visit to Linden Lab’s Portal Park, from where you can join the special Linden Tour – with new extensions this year.

Then it’s on to Bellisseria, to visit a strange new region that’s appeared there – and to meet the inmates of the Millbank Asylum with our guide – Prudence Anton.

Our next port of call is an extraordinarily detailed experience inspired by the country song, “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” telling the eerie tale of Lucius Clay. We’re joined by the creators, Aleriah and Mathias Laurent, who help us explore the beautifully detailed swamp and its mysterious inhabitants – and they share a few secrets with us too!

Next we visit Haunted Hollow in the company of one of its creator, Honey Heart, which features skeletal horse-riding, Russian folk-tales, the odd Headless Horseman who may lob a pumpkin at you, readings under the Hallowe’en Tree and a rather whimsical tower that’s full of fairytale left-overs under the auspices of its skeleton crew.

The episode ends with a visit to Frightened Pink – a region that combines scariness with fund-raising to fight breast cancer.

Plus, of course, there’s a slideshow of fabulous images of Hallowe’en across the Grid created by Wildstar Beaumont.

It all makes for a great scary show – so do tune in or join us at 2pm SLT at the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams!
